Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer has translated a brief article from Document.no which serves as an appropriate follow-up to “Goodbye, Sweden-That-Was”. The translator includes this introductory note:
As you know, Swedish politicians are working diligently at destroying their own country. They are longing for the day when native Swedes will become a minority, something which this article confirms.
It must be very sad for these people to wake up in the morning, look at themselves in the mirror and realize that they despise the face looking back at them, and everything that it represents.
It must be some kind of a mental disorder.
The translated article:
When Sweden becomes just as multicoloured as Africa
Sweden’s minister of Finance, Anders Borg is visiting Africa. He is giving an interview with Expressen [Swedish tabloid newspaper] on the bus in Lagos. Borg looks out the window, sees all the colours and looks forward to the day when Sweden will become just as multicoloured.
It is one thing that he believes that Africa will become more influential in the global market, and that economic growth will occur on the African continent. It is something completely different to wish for Africa to come to Sweden. It is reminiscent of Mona Sahlin’s comments about ‘corny’ Sweden. Swedish culture was nothing compared to foreign cultures; hence one should simply be grateful for the enrichment. Borg’s comments have similar connotations.
“Look at all the beautiful colours the women here are wearing. Within ten years this is what it is going to look like all over Europe. Back home it’s so bleak and dreary the colours are devoid of life. When our children grow up there will be between 1.5 to 2 billion people in Africa and we will continue to be 500 million. That is going to have a huge impact on our trends.
“Europe will become a better place, a more multicultural place,” he continues.
“That Africa is becoming more influential can be observed in popular music among other areas. But I think it will really dawn on us when we start to see African fast food chains in Stockholm.”
Anders Borg has visited three African nations and met with politicians, CEO’s of the national banks and CEOs in the private sector.
But has Borg asked the Swedes whether they want Sweden to look like Africa?
