Vanessa Kimball came to the city with her four lieutenants. The reason unknown, but the Reds and Blues suspect it has something to do with the Mercenaries they previously ran in to. She points them out to a large warehouse that the Informant had mentioned to them staying, “A lot of weird characters go in and out of there, but I bet a lot of your questions can be answered if you ask. The people there helped me and the guys out when our car broke down and I overheard something like your situation being talked about. Good luck boys.”

If all goes well, I SHOULD have the blues up next, but I said that last time to myself and kimball got done instead. I know she uses a DMR, but for the pose it looked odd? Sorry;;;; (Also did you know her armor is tan/cobalt? it looks…gray in the show sometimes so i didn’t know that lol)

sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.

Okay, so the post is gaining notes and people are confused, so to explain what the hell is going on:

Swedish elections held were on last Sunday, 14th September. We’ve had a right-leaning government the past eight years and after this there will be a change of power. The new party, Socialdemocrats (S) gained a total of 31% percent. The old party, Moderaterna (M) gained 21%. 

Sverigedemokraterna (SD) gained a total of 12.9%. Their policy is racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigration, anti-refugee, anti-diversity, anti-LGBT+, and anti-feminist. Basically, they tick every box on the douchebag lottery.

If you’re here to argue that they’re ~not actually~ Nazis: 1) Fuck you. 2) Fuck the horse the you rode in on. 3) I hope you get stepped on by a moose, you ignorant asswipe. 

  1.  they literally started as neo nazis. They have used a Neo-Nazi movement as campaign slogans,
  2. party members have assaulted immigrants with iron pipes (tw for racialised violence),
  3. worn Nazi symbols 
  4. supported and helped build Neo-Nazi group SvP.

There’s probably more, but I don’t have links on hand. 

They’ve been having rallies and demonstrations all over Sweden, and people have shown up just to turn their back on them and protest (this post explains it better). 

In the 2010 elections, SD were pretty much considered no better than neo-Nazis and only got 5.7% votes - it put them in 6th place and was just enough to get them into parliament. In the elections before that, they got about 2.9%. In the past four years, they’ve grown exponentially in Sweden.

They’ve also run extremely extensive PR campaigns, appealing to the youth, kicking out members “exposed” of being racist, (note: these members often end up in SvP) and picking up buzzwords from the Socialdemocrats’ ideology. 

29% of votes they gained this year were from swing voters who previously voted M,  and the biggest gain have been in the south, in small towns and the countryside:

This is not something that’s just going on in Sweden. Europe has seen an influx of extreme-right parties over the last decade or so, often thinly disguised as a party that puts ‘traditional values’ and ‘national interest’ first.

In Greece and Hungary they’ve already been in power. In Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Finland France and UK, extreme-right-wing parties have been voted into the EU. 

Because here’s the thing: we’ve forgotten what it looks like. We’ve gotten to the point where we’ve turned Nazism into a cartoonish lampoon of goose-stepping, uniforms and moral lessons that “we’ll never be like them~”, ignoring the fact nationalism is not as cut-and-dry two ends of an extreme but exists on a scale.

People have been apologising for SD’s actions for a while now because they’re not considered “extremist enough” to be neo-Nazis, because they don’t share the same beliefs, because they’ve “publicly denounced” SvP. 

But the same people still get hurt. Still SD has the institutional and systematic power and privilege to oppress, degrade and humiliate people of colour, which they already have done. Stop making excuses for them. Stop making leeways for right-wing-extremists because that is how they gain tract. 

Please spread this. 

the worst thing is that the people who vote SD aren’t usually racists or even share their values. People just want a quick fix or a noticeable change. Since we have such high amounts of asylum applications and acceptance it’s easy to blame immigration for all that’s wrong (mostly lack of jobs, crime etc).It really doesn’t help that their rhetoric skills are amazing when they’re unchallenged (debates have gone worse).

I think we’ll be okay these 4 years though. our majority is now left-wing (red and green parties, green are environment focused) and center-right (blue parties). This can’t really be compared to the american left and right though since our right is way closer to democrats than republicans. Anyway all other parties have agreed to not work with SD so they can’t really make any decisions. This could mean that while voting on something the blue parties might still get their wish through as SD usually votes like them.

these’s some stuff on BBC apparently.
