Comedy as a Weapon against Hypocrisy

Internationally Sweden has a seemingly unshakeable reputation as the country that consists of: blondes, moose and IKEA.

That may have been true 50 odd years ago but today we face a very different reality due to the irresponsible policies promoted by journalists and celebrities. This group of Swedes perceive themselves as belonging to an upper class with a holier than thou attitude. I find this incredibly ironic for they often take big loans to live beyond their means in Swedish monocultural neighbourhoods. The irresponsible policies this group of idealists force down the gullets of Swedes is implemented by the politicians. In the end your average Svensson will have to pay for the “generosity” imposed on them.

On the bright side there are a number of Swedes that have decided to stand up and make their voice heard in whichever way they can. One man truly stands out for he is using a tried and tested weapon.

Under the pseudonym @SinglaSlant on Twitter he has come up with the brilliant concept of #PKbor. Using comedy he mocks those who promote multiculturalism whilst simultaneously living in Swedish monocultural areas. Here is a sample of his work:

pkbor

“Soran Ismail promotes multiculturalism”

“Lives in a completely Swedish area in Södermalm”


Practice what you preach

The prerequisite for appearing on one of the #Pkbor memes is having spoken fondly of multiculturalism in the media whilst living in areas that are 95% Swedish.

It is easy to be generous with other peoples money and it is easy to dictate to others how they should lead their lives. I myself am not living in a multicultural area or a no-go zone but I have worked in both and I see no reason to impose those living conditions on others. Laughing at hypocricy or extremism is often the best way to combat it for arrogant individuals have an inflated sense of self-worth and get exceedingly touchy when displayed in a negative light.

Regardless of how efficient #SinglaSlant‘s efforts are, I always smirk when I see his work and this very same medicine is being used to undermine evil in a part of the world that is faced with a much greater threat than Sweden.

  2. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover an individual who
    actually knows what they’re discussing on the internet.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people have to look at this and
    understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more
    popular because you most certainly have the gift.
