      @Josephine Nilsson Sluta sprida falska rykten, majoriteten av människorna i landet är missnöjda med regeringen och folk kommer inte lämna landet på grund av detta.

      @Josephine Nilsson There is no fascist party in the Swedish riksdag. Why do you believe Trump is fascist btw? Because of his policy or rethoric? His policy is barely any different than Bidens at this point, and rethoric-wise, Löfven is more similar to Trump than Åkesson as he and the Socialdemocrats has called the opposition “pigs” or other degrading words and “racists” for decades, although copied their politics because their own was failing. Quit lying unless you can make real arguments, the government was built on parts with completely different politics but didnt want 18% of the Swedish people to have a say. That is not democracy, this day has been a democratic moment in Swedish history.

    • Avatar Akillesursinne says:

      @Mukhtar abdi Total lie. Immigration to Sweden took place once Sweden had reached a wealthy and functioning society, not before that. So pretending like you are extra special and you came here for noble reasons of helping us out, stop pretending.

      So yes, we were, and are, much without you. So yeah, perhaps you should shut up?

      In any case, I think most Swedes are okay with immigration, but we want it on levels that are acceptable to us. It’s our native land, after all, and you probably agree that natives have the right of the land. In other cases, you would probably not argue for the native rights of your own people in their own lands, right? =)

    • Avatar DUDMAN_ Itsme says:

      @Jessica Johnson When i came to Sweden and lived here for 7 years i BECAME swedish. I go to school in sweden, my parents work in swedish company, we do everything a normal swede would do. I identify as a swede, idc that i’m not white or that i wasn’t born in sweden or that racsist swedes belive that a country they were born in belongs to them like sweden is an object?????

    • Avatar Akillesursinne says:

      @DUDMAN_ Itsme That depends. Being a Swede is both a nationality and an ethnic group. Just because a Swede, like me who’s got his entire ancestry from here, is okay with immigrations doesn’t mean he has to be okay with the idea of giving up his identity to strangers.

      I would never tell someone from Tibet or a Kurd that now, all of a sudden, I am a Kurd, and that I have the same claim to Kurdistan as kurds do. That’s plain insanity and it goes against international law.

      International law says the people who have the best claim, in other words: Are native, have the definitive claim to the land if conflicts arise. Native Swedes/sami and Tornedal-finns are the natives, and the claimants of Sweden.

      That doesn’t mean others don’t have the right to live here, but it means that if any other group that came later ever said “this is our land”, that claim is illegal and an assault on the rights of the natives to their own land.

      You may very well identify as an ethnic Swede, but don’t expect people to view it as you do. Just like a kurd wouldn’t say I’m a kurd. I am, though, all for you being a national swede. But those are two separate things.

      @Joshqim Not free at all unfortunately. With all the taxes you pay, plus the (relatively low) cost of health care you still have to pay, and most importantly, the fact that it nowadays works badly, it’s expensive. 6 to 12 months waiting time for an operation was normal before covid-19, now it’s 2 years to 3 years. It was good, it was. Now it’s bad despite the high cost we pay for it.

      Can you elaborate?

    • Avatar Fäderneslandet says:

      ​@Novellus Are you not following the development in Sweden over the past seven years when Löfven took power? He failed to solve the rise in crime, he failed to solve unemployment and the housing shortage, he failed to solve the migration crisis and only made it worse, taxes are higher than ever, people die and suffer as they wait for treatment, our elderly are so underpaid that they end up on the streets, doctors and police resigns en masse because of low salary, the military is on their knees and is in desperate need of funding, the list goes on. And then we have the censorship implemented by Löfven which have collided with freedom of expression the last few years. Swedes are not allowed to criticize Löfven and those who do are labeled racist. If you share an article on social media considered critical, they will send the Security Service on you for hate speech. There is even a guy called the Online Hate Speech Monitor who sue people on social media for voicing their concerns. Löfven also actively target alternative media and by going through Google he usually have them shut down or their videos censored. And to make it worse he force the Swedish people to pay for his own state-funded public service that is acting as a mouthpiece for him to spread propaganda. Public service often embellish stories and even manipulate statistics to keep the Swedish people in the dark of what actually is going on. This censorship is the reason why it took so long for alot of Swedes to wake up.

    • Avatar Cloud Seeker says:

      I can actually understand the issue here. The problem in Sweden is that there has been a housing shortage for the past 20-30 years or so. Sweden have been nominated to the Guinness World Records for the longest queue lines for housing in the world.
      People have to borrow millions just to afford a 1 room apartment.

      If flats were allowed to be set according to a “free market” it will just go insane. Sweden have to pay a lot for everything. We pay 70-80% in taxes and a burger menu at McDonalds cost around 10-12 USD. A free market is not going to solve anything because housing is built on such a bubble that if it burst so does the economy. The housing market never crashed like it in the rest of the world during the 2008 crash. So it is a economic bubble that is still there since 2008.

      It’s not the Swedish goverment that’s running the fight against COVID-19.

      It’s the Folkhälsomynigheten and it is like all state agency in Sweden not controlled by the goverment when it come to stop the spread. It’s like the goverment can change the law but not release a suspected criminal.

      And make a lockdown was also against the Swedish law so it was not possibe to make a lockdown in Sweden before spring 2021 when there was a temporary change in the law.

    • Avatar Cloud Seeker says:

      @Henrik L Apart from that it is.

      Folkhälsomynigheten are not doing anything. All decisions are made by the politicians and not anyone else. You can not dismiss their responsibility to be the leaders of a nation by using a agency as a scapegoat. Folkhälsomynigheten do not have the authority to put any measure into effect. The buck stops with the government as it is them that make all choices based on the recommendations from Folkhälsomynigheten. Know and learn the difference.

      Don’t matter. We are not talking about lockdown vs not lockdown.
      – The fact all disaster preparation storages was dismantled has nothing to do with a lockdown.
      – The fact Sweden didn’t care about tracing the infection early on has nothing to do with a lockdown.
      – The fact Sweden went out and said “there is no evidence that preventive measures have any effect” has nothing to do with a lockdown.
      – The fact that Sweden dragged its feet with any kind of preventive measures such as wearing a mask at all has nothing to do with a lockdown.
      – The fact Sweden was unable to get testing started fast enough has nothing to do with a lockdown.
      – The fact the Swedish strategy of “flock immunity” require that a majority of people are infected first has nothing to do with a lockdown.

      To just think this is a lockdown vs not lockdown issue is disingenuous. The failure of the government is much much deeper then this. What they have done is to sell the fire extinguishers and the life preservers because they needed the money for some other reckless spending.

    • Avatar Henrik L says:

      @Cloud Seeker
      If you don’t want to talk about the Swedish goverment but instead talk about the pandamic and how Folkhälsomynigheten have handle it then that’s a different thing.

      In 2020 there was 7,6% more Swedish people’s that died but don’t forget that the year ended in middle of the second wave in Europe. That numbers is in the bottom of Europe and much lower then country’s with really hard lockdowns.
      But all the country’s you counted had lower, Germany with 5,3% more dead then normal years. Norway is the only country in Europe with less dead in 2020 then normal years, that really strange. To be able to have less death in a pandamic.

      But if we look at Germany they did stop the first wave really good and had much lower reported COVID-19 death in 2020 then Sweden but Still they ended with 5,3% more dead 2020, that gap should have been bigger if you only look at COVID-19 numbers.
      That show us that many of the reported COVID-19 death in Sweden was old and sick people’s that was reported as COVID-19 death but would sadly die in 2020 anyway.

      In 2021 the reported COVID-19 death numbers in Germany increase when they was hit really hard in the second wave, much harder then Sweden.

      So yes, Sweden had more dead then the country’s you counted.

      But we know that even Sweden stayed more opened then many country’s the things we did to stop the spread had big impact on the country.
      Much less cancer have been found in 2020 then normal, how many will die in untreated cancer the next years.
      The childrens education have been less good then normal, how will that effect the life and health for them. We know that lower education gives shorter life expectancy.
      The people’s economy have in some cases been really bad and that also gives lower life expectancy.
      And so on, like every hour you spending in your sofa looking at TV lower tour life expectancy and that increase in a lockdown.

      If Sweden would have a harder lockdown would that gives even more of this problems?

      Would Sweden had the same death numbers as Denmark with the same tactic or would it not had any impact like in other country’s in Europe with harder lockdown then Denmark and still more death then Sweden. Those question about what would happening if Sweden done a lockdown we Will never get a answer on.

      But My children had a not so bad year 2020, been most of the time in school with Friends and did get a good education.
      I been living My life in a pause way. Working and done things I needed but slow down and pause the social things.
      My 75+ parents are happy that their grand children have been able to live their life as normal as possibe, that their children not lost their work and have not destroyed their economy.
      When not been able to Travel and party my economy is even much stronger now then normal years.
      My parents and all eldery I know have been living in a self lockdown but been free to take a walk if the want or visit us, outside with distance.

      It’s sad that we not been able to protect the eldery at those homes but that’s a problem in many country’s with high death numbers and with lockdown so it would maybe not save them. We need better homes for them that could handle a pandamic and need more storage of medical and protection equipment. There is alot of things Sweden could done better but many of the things is long term changes.

    • Avatar Cloud Seeker says:

      I can try, but I have to explain the last elections so you get the big picture. I got a TL:DR at the end if you don’t care about the political big picture.

      2010 Election:
      In the 2010 election a lot of people where very dissatisfied with how Sweden handled problems around immigration (a problem recognized by every single party at the time) and the fact there where a lot of attacks on Swedish culture as a whole. As an example: The Prime Minister at the time said “Swedish culture is pure barbaric” in 2006, he said that while he was in office. As a result. The Swedish Democrats (SD) came into the parliament in the 2010 election, and every single party had a complete meltdown in both ethics and morals.
      This was when the “Exclude SD at all cost” policy was adopted by all political parties. Insane policies was pasted and they even doubled down on bad immigration policies from before only as a reaction to SD. They knew it needed reform, but it wasn’t done due to SD getting in. Due to the Arab Spring and other events, there was a lot of immigration Sweden wasn’t able to handle before and after the election. It was said that Sweden had to either focus on immigration or a welfare state as there was not enough money for both, and traditionally Sweden is a welfare state.

      2014 Election:
      In the 2014 election the Right Wing block was replace with the Left Wing block and Stafan Löfven came to power. This was not an easy time as well as an extra election was announced due to the fact government was not able to pass the budget as they were unable to get a majority for their budget (159 for, 190 against). This was resolved after the Right Wing voted for the Left Wing only because SD was voting against the Left as SD themselves are Right Wing. As a result of this the “December agreement” was made and it can basically be summed up with.
      “All parties agree to vote against whatever issue SD wants to ensure they never get any power through seats they gained in the election”.
      It was basically an undemocratic agreement which goal was to ensure a democratically elected party should not have any power within a democracy. This agreement held until the Christian Democracts broke away from it as they didn’t want to take part in it anymore. After that, every other party also broke away and it was declared to be a mistake.
      In 2015 we also had the immigration crisis due to the war in Syria and everything else with ISIS. When it came to the Swedish response the childish “SD wants X so we do Y” was still in full effect. Sweden answered with trying to get as many refugees as possible. They didn’t really care about if they were refugees or not allowed basically anyone claiming to be a refugee to come in. This was not Sweden able to handle in any way. The problems were swiped under the rug with the excuse “How dare you! How can you not have compassion!”. This came back to bite Sweden years later, especially after the Paris attack. It turned out that Sweden had tried to pick both immigration AND a welfare state.

      2018 Election
      In 2018 resentment of how the Swedish government had behaved up until now was still growing, and SD was growing in response. Every single county was now out of money and on the verge of bankruptcy. My own county was out of money in January because all of that years budget had to go to pay the debt from the previous year. It was a fun time to know that.
      The “must exclude SD” policy was still in effect, but was cracking somewhat when it came to the Christian Democrats, but they were not willing to make the jump.
      The election proved to be a complete mess. The seats were allocated the following way:
      Left Wing: 144
      Right Wing: 143
      SD: 49
      No side was able to gain a majority without the support from SD. But the Right Wing refused to work with SD. The Center party (Right Wing) and the Liberals Party (Right Wing, Yes, Liberals are right wing in Sweden) refused to work with the Left Party (Left Wing) or SD.
      This resulted in a deadlock that lasted for 4 months. It was only broken when the Center Party and the Liberals decided to break apart from the Ring Wing Alliance and join with the Left Wing. This was however not the complete story. The Center Party refused to work with the Left Party, but the support from the Left Party was 100% required to gain a majority. So the agreement was that the Left party should vote for everything the government coalition wanted but without having any political influence or being part of the government. Basically. They were asked to be a doormat that did whatever the government wanted no matter what it was just so they and SD can be excluded from political power and influence. Yes. It is very ironic how much political power both of those parties gained here.
      The Left party only agreed to this but stated that there was a few issues they will not tolerate in any way, and those issues were key issues to keep the Center Party support.
      Recently one of these issues came up. The Center Party were not going to back down because they needed to show that the Left party was excluded from political power in Sweden. But the Left party knew that only their support kept the government in power at all. So they asked for a vote of no confidence and it was past.

      The government was elected on a extremely unstable and weak coalition. A impossible equation so to say. A coalition that both excluded and required the support of a key political party that disagreed with some fundamental goals of the coalition government. When one of these issues were brought up and the government was not willing to give the key player what they wanted because they were forced to exclude them from political influence, a vote of no confidence were held and the government fell.

  77. Avatar MS3300 says:

    Why do people dislike him?

    • Avatar Cloud Seeker says:

      @MS3300 Maybe because he build his government around the idea to exclude other democratically elected political parties, and he have failed to lead the country in a positive direction.

      – When he was elected the so called “December agreement” was made between all parties other then the Swedish Democrats. The aim of that agreement was that all other parties should make sure to vote in such a way that whatever the Swedish Democrats (SD) wanted to do in any issue should always be voted down and deny them any political influence.
      I want to remind you that SD is a democratically elected party, and this is very much undemocratic behavior. The agreement was eventually broken because of how undemocratic it was, it has also since been been denounced as mistake.

      – He have also failed hard in his role as the leader of the country. In less then 10 years Sweden have gone from having among the fewest lethal shootings in Europe to be the only country in Europe where lethal shootings are increasing instead of decreasing.

      -Under his leadership the PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) study excluded so many low preforming students that they had to pass special rules for Sweden and now it has been declared cheating.
      Under his leadership and under his government the study was for the first time handled by the government and not Universities. What happened was that they excluded immigrant children that had poor grades. They excluded anyone with poor grade. They excluded anyone that did not want to do the test. They excluded anyone they thought will preform poorly, and they also handed it in after the deadline. All of this was to cover up how poorly the schools have been mismanaged under his years in power.

      – Sweden have had a massive amount of gang violence which is now out of control and can’t be handled. Sweden have real “no-go-zones” and they are well over 200 zones by now. This problem did not exist before in Sweden and have been created within the last 7 years.

      There is a lot to dislike about Stefan Löfven. If you wish to see how Sweden is. Go watch Tim Pools report about it when he visited Sweden. Or 60 minutes. The crew was attacked just for being in a no-go-zone.

      EDIT: I also want to inform that the attacks on religious people that sound a lot like Jewels (have to censure due to Youtube bots) have been on the rise. A lot of Jewels are fleeing from Sweden because of how unsafe it is to be a Jewel in Sweden.
      Even many refugees complain that it is safer in Syria then some parts of Sweden. So you go figure that one out.

    • Avatar Henrik L says:

      @Cloud Seeker
      Was that not 2 right party that is more to the middle ( C and L ) that did exclude other party, the SD right Wing party and Left Wing party ( V ) and not Löven?

      They did not want included left Wing or work with right Wing SD. The stadsminister Löven and the S party have never before hade any problems to work with the left Wing party Vänstern ( V ).

      The only way Sweden would get a goverment after last election was depending on C and L. They needed to vote together with one wing party, left or right.

      The thing that did this mess was that S make a deal with C to get their vote for power, but they also needed V vote.
      If C included V they could maybe done a deal also.

    • Avatar Cloud Seeker says:

      @Henrik L No. Before 2018 every single party excluded SD. Unless you have been living under a rock, S have been instrumental in trying to exclude SD. S do not seek cooperation over party lines without reasons. To just behave like it is C and L that wants to exclude SD is revisionist history and outright laughable since it means you do not remember more then 3 years at a time.

    • Avatar Henrik L says:

      @Cloud Seeker
      I’m not, that’s only normal politics.
      All party don’t work together.

      The right politics like M or KD would never included the left Wing V.

      So you can’t be angry at V, S or MP to not included SD. If a party is to extrema for other party then they can’t work together.

      Yes SD are a big party but how many years have not S been the biggest party and still not been in power so size don’t change anything, in Swedish politics you need Friends and SD did not had any right party Friends in last election, don’t blame the left party for that.
      And still in last election M, KD wanted to included SD in the same way L, C, S ,MP did with V. Vote together to get power but not included them in the goverment. But we all know what Side was biggest

    • Avatar Cloud Seeker says:

      @Henrik L What are you talking about? No. M and KD did not want to include SD in some way because they literally stood on stage and said that they were not going to work with SD. The only one that even came close was KD and they said.

      “We may consider it, but only when SD get more compitent and serious politicians. But as of now, we are not working with SD and instead want a government with the Alliance.”

      M and KD was not open in any way. You do not have a working memory if you think that. M only came around to it in the past 3 years as political realities was clear when C and L showed that the Alliance was no more. It was the break up of the Alliance that forced M and KD to actually seeks support from SD.

      Also. This is not normal politics. Not working with is not the same as working to exclude. Not wanting to live in the same home as you is not the same as trying to prevent you from having a home.
      You are extremely dishonest by even trying to make them the same thing.
