All kinds of geekery.
New government! No more right-wing Sweden! Socialism all the way! And the “our voters tweet I hate white men but that’s ok with us because hate based on race and gender is fine when we say so” feminist party didn’t even get in! Too bad people threw away their votes on it when the left parties already have feminist ideals. Apparently not hateful enough though?
(the dismayed breastface represents the fact that the moral conservative nationalists got way too many votes and will probably hold some sway over the left block in day-to-day politics )

I can offer some more info on the first pic as I live in that very city; Växjö. She was from Poland but she never went to concentration camp. She was also mentally ill and ended her life by throwing herself from our water tower which doubled as a cafe at that time. A little known fact is the nazis was chased by an angry mob and had to lock themselves in a public restroom by the train station until police arrived.
The Swedish election is coming up in a couple of days. We have an organized albeit thankfully small nazi party running for office. They’re not skinheads this time; they wear suits and look all proper like and hide behind a deceptively smooth rhetoric
They came to Växjö last weekend to spread their filth at our main square. I, along with hundreds of people, filled the square, sang, shouted, rattled our key rings, stomped and booed for the entirety of the speech, completely drowning out every word.
What this lady did was a brave and just thing, mentally ill or not. I hope her and our efforts aren’t in vain. We’ll know next week.
