What’s that? Leftists organizing a counter-demonstration against a gay pride parade? In case you missed our coverage of it, a right-wing (read: left-wing by Canadian/American/British/any other country standards) Swedish politician is organizing a gay pride parade through areas of Sweden that are 75% Muslim. Leftists have become absolutely enraged by this idea, calling the organizers racist, fascist Nazis, demanding that they be jailed, and threatening to kill them. The parade happens this Wednesday on July 29th, but leftist counter-demonstrators are expected to vastly outnumber the gays marching through the Muslim areas.
Recently, one of the leftists who organized the counter-demonstration – a feminist “anti-fascist” named Emilie Mårtensson – has apologized.
No, she didn’t apologize for organizing a counter-demonstration against a gay pride parade. She apologized for using the word “picnic”.
You see, the counter-demonstration was originally given a name containing the word “picnic”, but someone informed Ms. Mårtensson that the word “picnic” has its roots in slavery (this is complete BS, by the way). So, rather than risk being called “racist” by her fellow leftists (and, in Sweden, being called “racist” is quite literally worse than being called a child molester), Emilie immediately changed the name of the counter-demonstration to “Antirasistiskt Prideparkhäng på Järvafältet”, which roughly translates to “Antiracist Pride Park Hangout at Järvafältet”.
Here she is on Facebook, apologizing for using the word “picnic” (screenshot taken by an anonymous 4chan user from Sweden):
Her post says, translated to English:
I received a mail where a good person explained to me that the word picknic/picnic has its root in slavery. I have to say I am sorry and will right away change the name to prideparkhäng. Thank you <3
One commenter pointed out that “picnic” does not have its roots in slavery and linked her to a Snopes article explaining that any supposed links between the word “picnic” and slavery/lynchings are merely an urban myth.
Needless to say, she didn’t care.
Anyways, we are posting this to give you an idea of what kind of people are organizing this counter-demonstration… against a gay pride parade. The gay pride parade and the accompanying leftist counter-demonstration happens tomorrow, so we will continue to keep you updated on what will surely be a massively chaotic mess of right-wing gays, anti-gay leftists, and the Islamic immigrants who want to butcher all of them.
Finally, since most of our readers probably don’t know very much about Swedish politics, it should be noted that the left in Sweden is very extreme and very violent, even bordering on mafia-like. Swedish leftists have been known to outright physically attack their opponents, usually in mobs. Some people have even been killed by Swedish leftists in a kind of pseudo-gang warfare. We are fully expecting the leftists who organized the counter-demonstration to violently attack the gay pride parade right along with the Muslims. Oh, and did we mention that Sweden has recently been undergoing a series of bombings, shootings, and arson attacks in Muslim-dominated areas? Yeah, this is definitely going to get ugly.
Stay tuned, folks.
