You gotto love ’em for it

The Swedish Democrats, the populist political party that is newly elected into the Sweden Riksdag (parliament), apparently stormed out of Church today during the re-opening of the Riksdag.

It seems that the bishop conducting the service talked about everyone’s equal worth (like a Church would know anything about the subject) and how important it is to treat people the same. The bishop probably didn’t mention all the millions murdered by Christians because they happened to be different, but in any case the Swedish Democrats (SD) didn’t really like what they were hearing, so they bailed on the ceremony.

SD Party leader Jimmie Åkesson was even so upset that he couldn’t talk with media, something he never pass up the opportunity to do otherwise. Among other things the Bishop apparently mentioned anti-SD demonstrations in her speech so I guess the bishop were a bit too obvious in her attempts to sound like one of the righteous elitists.

I wasn’t there myself, haven’t listened to it, and I really couldn’t care less.

What I do find interesting however is that SD actually walked out on a political we-are-all-as-one-against-you-the-people meeting. Normally when something like this happens those in power know better than to let their emotions take over. They act in accordance to the golden rule of vote-maximation. They will smile to the cameras and say something nice about the speech and trying to make it sound like they are now ready to go to work.

But not SD.

And I like it.

They go into to church in traditional Swedish costumes and they left because they felt offended. Of course the elitists, journalists and our normal bunch of puppet masters will spin this, make it sound very, very horrible. How could they leave church? And they are the party that loves Swedish traditions and the Swedish church. And wasn’t it unprofessional?

Of course the entire gang of misfits that make out the soul-sucking elite of Sweden is cheering on this turn of events thinking that the Swedish Democrats have made their first big mistake.


This will be liked by many. It’s refreshing. It’s not the politically correct thing to do. They will gain supporters for this, not lose some of them.

No matter what I feel about these SD crazies or their xenophobic madness I also need to say: Bravo! Good for you. More politicians and more people in general should stand up for themselves and their political view.


  1. I don´t support everything you wrote, but in the big end you got a point. This will only make people like SD more and it was not up to the curch to hold a speech against one party.

  2. I think you're wrong about two major points.

    1. SD have spent a four year-long campaign trying to get away from their racist-roots, instead establishing the image of a proper political party that only wants to lower the imigration numbers. Not being able to accept a speech about racism and human rights doesn't really fall in line with the new image.

    2. The critism I've read towards SD actions isn't about the blasphemy of leaving church (I think very, very few people give a damn about chuch), it's about SD feeling violated over "the extreme left wing" (my translation) infiltrating a church and talking about equal rights. The only reasonable conclusion:...SD are in fact not in favour of equal rights. Which is of course extraordinary.

  3. Erik: Det var inte fråga om något ställningstagande mot rasism utan om ett ställningstagande mot Sverigedemokraterna. Detta är uppenbart då hon inleder med att hänvisa till en demonstration som uttryckligen var riktad mot SD (eller "rasistpartiet Sverigedemokraterna" som organisatörerna för demonstrationen uttryckte det) och följer upp med att rada upp dom åsikter som man demonstrerade emot och tillskriver därmed SD dessa åsikter eftersom demonstrationen var riktad mot partiet. Detta var åsikter som partiet - enligt dess representanter - inte alls har! Hon smutskastar alltså sverigedemokraterna och avslutar med att - som jag tolkar det - legitimera det våld i form av stenkastning som förekommit vid SDs torgmöten med orden "vi måste se till att även stenarna ropar". Det är alltså helt felaktigt när media rapporterar att sverigedemokraterna lämnade i protest mot ett brett ställningstagande mot rasism. Man lämnade därför att man pekas ut som rasister och därför att vänsterextremt våld legitimeras. Dock ganska löjligt och onödigt agerat i mitt tycke.

  4. Staten och den politiska eliten sitter och gnider nävarna och tror de gjort en supersmart kupp för att minska SDs popularitet och öka sina egna röst-andelar, Kapitalet försöker å sin sida behålla invandrarna som våra hejdukar och få folk att tro att allt är SDs fel, så de står troligen och hejar på biskopen och svenska kyrkan i sitt agerande.

    Hoppas det resulterar i mass-flykt från svenska kyrkan och att folk verkligen går över till SD. I sansade länder får även minoriteter representeras och utöva makt, men inte i majoritetens diktatur Sverige. Den frustration som byggs upp hos minoriteter som SD ( med flera ) lär nog inte vara hälsosam för samhället på lång sikt.
