    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.

    I sent a complaint by email to SAS a few weeks ago, and basically just got a bullshit answer about how they are "sorry that their message was misinterpreted". No apology for saying 'there's no such thing as Scandinavian', and no backing down. As well as characterizing all the criticism they've gotten for the commercial as an "online hate campaign".

    I hope they go bankrupt.

    They were pretty quick to blame /pol/ for the "hate campaign", but SAS, I've news for you. People are just sick of the "self-hate" campaign that nowadays goes for "public [published] opinion". It's the opinion of a tiny, hostile faction and people have enough of this bullcrap being shoved down their throats 24/7 and everywhere.

    Learn from the backslash of gamer industry. The saying "get woke, get broke" doesnt come out of nowhere.

    It's gotten slightly under 2000 signatures by now. Not as massive turnout as I had hoped for, but it's something.

    Their stock value seem to have experienced a significant dip following the debacle, though. The commercial gained attention on the 11th of February, I believe, and ten days later, their value dropped around 32% in a matter of seven days (if I'm reading the chart correctly). Could be totally unrelated, and might have more to do with the public anxiety around traveling in general, in response to the coronavirus, but who knows...

    My campaign on gab also failed, unfortunately. I thought there'd be more response, but the "right" still has to learn the value of coordinated outrage. It's really a topic for the "political strategy" section. I was also disappointed back then about the petitions (and there were several) against the Migration Pact. Not sure why the "right" doesnt (want to) make use of the tools that are there... downvoting videos on youtube that then get deleted wont help. Considering that it had a downvote count of 64k it's disappointing that a more effective tool isnt used as much...

    I think it's mostly caused by the coronavirus hysteria, since Norwegian is doing even worse than SAS, dropping 50% in a few days. If you put their stocks in the same graph, you will see that they have both declined in a similar fashion during the last week.
