Swedish Politics

Swedish Politics

The political climate in Sweden. It sucks at the moment.

Time for an explanation. Sweden recently got a new party voted into parliament, Sverigedemokraterna. They are known as an extremely “immigrant suspicious” party, and having them in the parliament does not suit the Swedes who have always proudly proclaimed themselves to be the least racist Scandinavian country. Especially Denmark has been called the big racists of the North because of their party Dansk Folkeparti.

Sverigedemokraterna are often compared to Dansk Folkeparti, and therefore the Swedes goes back and forth between calling Sverigedemokraterna a Danish party, and a Nazi party.

That of course got the attention of the Danes, because they felt they were being called Nazis, so they followed the election closely, and when Sverigedemokraterna got voted in, the “MUWAHAHAHA!!! Who are the nazis now, bitches!!?!” from the Danes could be heard all the way to Greenland. :XD:

And it can still be heard whenever some Danish specialist in Swedish politics is on the news and have to explain what is going on. It’s so hilariously obvious that they are enjoying this chaos waaay too much. :XD:

National Personifications

(Download for full size)

First, let’s make this clear: I did not make any of these up. They are all old national personifications of countries that I just re-drew.

I wanted to see what they looked like next to each other.
:D
From left to right:
Lady of the Mountains (Iceland)
Ola Nordmann (Norway)
Holger the Dane (Denmark)
Mother Svea (Sweden)
Finnish Maiden (Finland)
Adelita (Mexico)
Uncle Sam (USA)
Mother Canada (Canada)
Jock Tamson (Scotland)
Kathleen Ni Houlihan (Ireland)
John Bull (England)
Dame Wales (Wales)

I tried to give them individual personalities as I see them from their pictures. :)

Hetalia and SatW are total wannabes, yo! They ain’t got notin’ on these guys! The original and classic personifications of the Nordic countries.

From left to right:
Lady of the Mountains (Iceland)
Ola Nordmann (Norway)
Holger the Dane (Denmark)

I feel like a horrible person for thinking that Holger and Svea should just solve their problem by getting it on. :XD:

Geography Joke

Geography Joke

An old joke that just didn’t work with the usual characters.

I know some people won’t get it, and all I will say to help you along is: Please notice what Sweden and Finland looks like together without Norway. ;)
That was actually what early euros looked like because Norway isn't in the EU. :XD:

Åland got it's own flag because he is a fairly big character in the usual comics.

And Sweden is referring to this http://humoncomics.com/making-friends

This is another one of those “been lying around forever” comics, because it’s amazingly stupid.
New South Wales is Australia's most populous state, so the idea that New South Wales is the offspring of New Zealand and Wales is purely based on the name. :D

Don’t ask me why Sweden and Denmark are on vacation together. They’re probably visiting some convention or something. Most likely the worst vacation ever for both of them. :XD:

Not Norway

Not Norway

Denmark, you asshole.

Historians used to discuss how the Norwegians were treated while Norway was part of Denmark. Were they treated like fellow and equal Danes, or did the Danish nobles suppress the Norwegians people?
Today it’s agreed that it was a mix of both. The Norwegians were treated as fellow and equal Danes, unfortunately the Danes were already being suppressed by the Danish nobles.

Non the less it was obvious who was Denmark’s favourite, and when Denmark lost Norway to Sweden, Denmark’s treatment of Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands suddenly worsened tenfold.

So Denmark did not take the loss of Norway well. Instead of just moving on, he took it out on all the not-Norways left in his house.

Language Lesson

Language Lesson

Denmark wanted America to say this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQkvqJJvR9U because Danes love to make foreigners say it.

All the other Nordic countries joke that Danish sounds like Swedes talking with a potato or porridge in their mouths, while Danes joke that Swedes sound like drunk Danes, and Norwegians sound like drunk Danes singing. :XD:

Thanks to Hekla, the gate to hell, Iceland is used to hell-spawn invading his house in the night. Nothing to get worked up over.
