Isn’t it weird that the left’s favourite democratic nation (obviously plenty of people on the left also love Fidel Castro II, also known as Hugo Chavez, but you would have to be retarde – sorry, ON THE LEFT to consider Hugo’s Venezuela a democracy), the home of peace, love and understanding, the home of non-violence and a nation of less than 10 million people has had two of its most popular politicians (Olof Palme and Anna Lindh) assassinated since 1985.
Both of them were on the left, so they must have been killed by right-wing lunatics, right? Well, no.
Anna Lindh, who was killed in 2003, was killed because she, get this, SUPPORTED the US (and NATO) military campaign against Serbia. And Olaf Palme, who was assassinated in 1986 – who killed him? The police are still on the case, so we should get the information any minute now. The main suspect – a hardcore drinker named Christer Pettersson – died three years ago.
I trust Phillip Adams to be consistent and that he writes a column when it’s time for the 2010 general elections here in Sweden. A conclusion that goes something like this will do: “Let us hope that maniacal alcoholics and Serbian racists in Sweden do not exact a terrible vengeance.”
With kind regards,
