HD: Världens Lyckligaste Folk pt 3.

April 9, 2010

Third illustration in the Världens Lyckligaste Folk series (published in Helsingborgs Dagblad):

I can’t find the image at the site right now, but I’m sure it’s there somewhere. At least it was in the paper last Sunday…

The guy in the image is Mogens Glistrup, who started a political (kind of) party in the 1970ies in Denmark. Fremskritsspatriet, which kind of turned into Dansk Folkeparti which is active today (making a long story very short). Fremskrittspartiet was a clown party, much like Ny Demokrati which came later in in Sweden. But where Ny Demokrati failed pretty quickly, their Danish counterparts had lots of success. And their heirs, Dansk Folkeparti has a lot of space to turn their racist, sorry, islamophobic politics into practice. We have a counterpart to them too in Sweden: Sverigedemokraterna. Hopefully they will crawl back under their rook pretty soon too.
