Sweden’s Far-Right Gaining Ground As Social Problems Mount

Sweden has accepted more refugees per capita than any other European country. At the height of the European refugee crisis in 2015, Sweden accepted 10,000 refugees per week. Sweden’s liberal immigration policy is honourable, but it does not come without problems. As social problems increase, Sweden’s far right party, the Sweden Democrats (SD) are gaining territory and will likely be the major winner in the next election.

  • Stupid statement of the century, “Sweden’s liberal immigration policy is honourable, but it does not come without problems.” Not without its problems?!?! I’m being swallowed by a 25 foot long Python and THATis not without its problems either. When he gets up to my chin, I’ll be pretty concerned.

    I wish these stupid quisling media would quit referring to commonsense nationalists as “far right”. Parties like the Sweden Democrats have adherents from a wide swath of the usual political spectrum. Are Donald Trump’s working class supporters, betrayed by the Democrats, also “far right”? Stupid mendacious media.

      A heard a good comment on a podcast yesterday, saying that Leftism is the only ideology where every direction from their position is either ‘far right’ or ‘extreme right’. A bit like being at the North Pole, where ever other place on Earth would be ‘far south’ or ‘extreme south’.

    Good. Maybe there is still a glimmer of hope left to Sweden.
