As a sign of the extent to which the elites will go to keep Sverigedemokraterna from gaining any power or influence, the two major parties — the Social Democrats and the “Moderates” (theoretically conservative, but really only slightly less socialist than the Socialists) — have agreed to join forces to prevent the Sweden Democrats from taking part in any government.
Thus is revealed the sump into which modern Swedish politics has fallen: no political differences are significant. Left vs. right; socialist vs. capitalist; state control vs. liberty — who cares? The only important thing is to prevent any upstart party from gaining enough strength to block or — dare we hope for it? — reverse official government policy on mass immigration.
The prime minister of the new government will most likely be Mona Sahlin, known to Swedes as “Mona Muslim”, and to me as “Moaning Mona” due to her being awarded the “F***ing Medal” at Pride Week a few years ago (and no, that’s not a hoax; read the post — it really happened).
Our Danish correspondent Hans Erling Jensen of Eticha has written a brief roundup about Moaning Mona and the Swedish elections on the eve of the voting:

Mona Sahlin is the chairman of the Swedish Social Democratic Party and therefore also a candidate for the highest post as prime minister in the current elections, tomorrow, 19th September, 2010.
It is unbelievable that she can stand as a candidate for Sweden’s highest civilian post with her background. In 1995 she was discovered abusing government credit cards, she had unpaid parking fees for thousands of euros, she did not pay the public kindergarten fees for her children’s care, and she failed to pay for a TV license — although her slogan was: “Enjoy paying taxes!”
After these cases Mona Sahlin had several exclusive posts. First as minister for small business, then minister for immigration and integration, and last as minister for the environment. She succeeded in showing her infantile incompetence in every matter, and you would have thought she was finished in politics — but no way!
Mona Sahlin is the first candidate for prime minister in Sweden’s history who hates her own country! Several times she has expressed a deep contempt and loathing for Swedish culture.
At a meeting of the Turkish youth federation Eurotürk in 2002, she said to the Turkish audience:
“I think that what makes the Swedes so jealous of immigrant groups is that you have a culture, an identity, a history, something that unites you. And what do we have? We have midsummer and silly things like that.” (The celebration of midsummer is the absolute most prioritized Swedish tradition).
Or the original in Swedish:
“Jag tror att det är lite det som gör många svenskar så avundsjuka på invandrargrupper. Ni har en kultur, en identitet, en historia, någonting som binder ihop er. Och vad har vi? Vi har midsommarafton och sådana töntiga saker.”
Let us just proceed:
“I hate everything that is genuine, typical Swedish.”

“If two equally qualified persons apply for a job in a company with few immigrants, the one who is named Mohammed shall have the job.”

This person not only is morally extremely frayed, but also demeans and speaks with contempt of all Swedish (and Nordic) culture — and this person may actually become Prime Minister of Sweden!
Let us hope that never happens…
