    Swedish historian: Denial of one’s culture is “embarrassing self-hatred”



    Herman Lindqvist, a prolific Swedish author, has completely dismantled SAS’s outrageous claim which argued that there’s no such thing as Scandinavian culture and that all Scandinavian culture has been stolen from other cultures.

    In an opinion editorial for the daily Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, Lindqvist argues that SAS has utterly failed to understand what a country’s history is. Lindqvist attacks SAS’s latest commercial where the “woke” airline company makes the egregious claim that nothing uniquely Scandinavian or Swedish exists.

    Lindqvist rightly considers the tasteless claim to be an “embarrassing example of self-hatred”.

    The “Sweden deniers”, as he calls them, claim that Swedes have nothing to be proud of. According to Lindqvist, however, people who say these kinds of things simply do not understand what a nation is.

    “They are completely wrong and have not understood what a country’s history is. They attribute unique qualities to France, Norway, Japan and all other countries on earth. Only Swedes are unique in our lack of originality and the constant denial of our own character. The Sweden deniers have not understood that every country on earth is the sum of that particular country’s experience”, he writes.

    More recently immigration from Africa and the Middle East has changed the fabric of Swedish society dramatically. Lindqvist’s article also raises questions about what Sweden will look like in the future. According to him, the country already has the highest proportion of Muslims in Western Europe.

    “According to Statistics Sweden (SCB), there were 15 Muslims in Sweden in 1930. Today there are over one million, and around one-third of them are practicing Muslims who fill the more than 20 mosques. Sweden has a higher proportion of Muslims in the population than any other Western European country”, writes Lindqvist.

    The post Swedish historian: Denial of one’s culture is “embarrassing self-hatred” appeared first on Voice of Europe.
