sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.

Okay, so the post is gaining notes and people are confused, so to explain what the hell is going on:

Swedish elections held were on last Sunday, 14th September. We’ve had a right-leaning government the past eight years and after this there will be a change of power. The new party, Socialdemocrats (S) gained a total of 31% percent. The old party, Moderaterna (M) gained 21%. 

Sverigedemokraterna (SD) gained a total of 12.9%. Their policy is racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigration, anti-refugee, anti-diversity, anti-LGBT+, and anti-feminist. Basically, they tick every box on the douchebag lottery.

If you’re here to argue that they’re ~not actually~ Nazis: 1) Fuck you. 2) Fuck the horse the you rode in on. 3) I hope you get stepped on by a moose, you ignorant asswipe. 

  1.  they literally started as neo nazis. They have used a Neo-Nazi movement as campaign slogans,
  2. party members have assaulted immigrants with iron pipes (tw for racialised violence),
  3. worn Nazi symbols 
  4. supported and helped build Neo-Nazi group SvP.

There’s probably more, but I don’t have links on hand. 

They’ve been having rallies and demonstrations all over Sweden, and people have shown up just to turn their back on them and protest (this post explains it better). 

In the 2010 elections, SD were pretty much considered no better than neo-Nazis and only got 5.7% votes - it put them in 6th place and was just enough to get them into parliament. In the elections before that, they got about 2.9%. In the past four years, they’ve grown exponentially in Sweden.

They’ve also run extremely extensive PR campaigns, appealing to the youth, kicking out members “exposed” of being racist, (note: these members often end up in SvP) and picking up buzzwords from the Socialdemocrats’ ideology. 

29% of votes they gained this year were from swing voters who previously voted M,  and the biggest gain have been in the south, in small towns and the countryside:

This is not something that’s just going on in Sweden. Europe has seen an influx of extreme-right parties over the last decade or so, often thinly disguised as a party that puts ‘traditional values’ and ‘national interest’ first.

In Greece and Hungary they’ve already been in power. In Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Finland France and UK, extreme-right-wing parties have been voted into the EU. 

Because here’s the thing: we’ve forgotten what it looks like. We’ve gotten to the point where we’ve turned Nazism into a cartoonish lampoon of goose-stepping, uniforms and moral lessons that “we’ll never be like them~”, ignoring the fact nationalism is not as cut-and-dry two ends of an extreme but exists on a scale.

People have been apologising for SD’s actions for a while now because they’re not considered “extremist enough” to be neo-Nazis, because they don’t share the same beliefs, because they’ve “publicly denounced” SvP. 

But the same people still get hurt. Still SD has the institutional and systematic power and privilege to oppress, degrade and humiliate people of colour, which they already have done. Stop making excuses for them. Stop making leeways for right-wing-extremists because that is how they gain tract. 

Please spread this. 

VERY VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE THE SAME THING IS HAPPENING IN GERMANY AND BASICALLY ALL OVER EUROPE BECAUSE OF THE GREECE CRISIS PLEASE OMG I HELD A PRESENTATION ABOUT THESE PARTIES AT SCHOOL AND PEOPLE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THEY WERE RIGHT WING PARTIES OKAY

Please be aware of this, only half the population go vote and these parties don’t look like the regular nazi parties, they use different colors and terms but they are still dangerous! 

Ich meine damit ganz klar die AfD und ich hoffe es ist auch allen klar was an deren Programm so problematisch ist und ich will nichts von ‘Populismus ist nicht Extremismus’ hören, es hat einen Grund warum Sachsen diese Menschen so mag.

I love your blog and who you are as a person so much already and I've barely seen any of it. I'm sorry I can't purchase any of your artwork (lack of credit card ya know) but i'd definitely wanna commission something if I get the chance. Maybe I'll go out and get a visa card just to buy something beautiful from you. xD Anyways I love your stuff and your comics. c: Keep up the good work.

Thank you, I am very happy to hear that-
I’ve been thinking about doing commissions for quite some time but I’m so unsure if people want it or not….
The thing is I’m not really able to provide anything right now since my wacom died last month (another reason why I need money) but once I get a new tablet I might do it.

If you want to help secure the rights of women all over the world go here.
If you want to help people from north korea go here.
If you want to help stop child labor go here
If you want to help people escape from their current situation go here
If you want to help refugees reunite with their families go here

If you want to permanently help the people who are still living in inhumane conditions all over the globe, that grow up experiencing war, violence and discrimination, be political! Go vote, write articles, educate every single person you meet, never shut your mouth, make people aware of the fact that we are still far away from global equality, freedom and peace.

This is important.

Why does this post imply that the world ignores North Korea?

Because, in history, politics and philosophy classes in school we’ve talked about concentration camps that existed during WW2 countless times and yet not a single time anyone mentioned that they still exist. 
We’ve also barely ever talked about what korea’s intentions are or how the country developed into what it is now. 
We also don’t talk about war in african or south american countries. 
We talked about french and american and british and german and russian history but japan is only mentioned in context with WW2 and india and china only matter if we talk about the products we use in europe (we barely talk about the conditions though but that’s another story.) 
The thing I wanted to say is that the history we are being taught is white history under the illusion that history was and is and always will be white.

I’m not drawing stuff at the moment because I don’t have a full version of SAI anymore (if anyone has a license code, that’d be so great and I’d be thankful for ever) and I’m just not in the mood for traditional stuff so I just doodle and……well. But I bought and instax mini 8 so there might be some artsy photo  stuff in the future. 

And yay, thanks to the 200 people who started following me over the past 2 months, I love you!

My little brother bought his own film for my instant camera and one of the first photos he wanted to take was this one. 
He told me to put it up on tumblr so he can become internet famous. 
(I don’t think that’s gonna happen but he has a lot of faith in the internet.)

(give him some notes, he’s so excited)
