SAD: Swedish diplomats move national holiday to avoid overlap with Ramadan

Mike GwilliamRebel Columnist

Swedish diplomats decided to move the celebration of their national holiday up a month to avoid clashing with Ramadan.

As Heat Street reports, officials at the Swedish consulate in Jerusalem had a party for the National Day of Sweden on May 6th. The actual date of the celebration is June 6th.

When asked why they decided to celebrate weeks before the proper date, the consulate responded, “Yes – the national day is on 6 June – we’re looking forward to it! But celebrations coincided with Ramadan, so we chose to bring them forward this year.”

The event took place at a hotel in Ramallah.

The national day became a public holiday in 2005. It's supposed to be a legitimate patriotic day, but apparently Islam gets in the way of patriotism.

The Swedish government website describes the day as follows: “Swedes celebrate their National Day on 6 June in honour of two historical events. On 6 June 1523, Gustav Vasa was elected king, and on the same date in 1809, the country adopted a new constitution. Not known for displaying their national pride, this day offers a rare chance to see Swedes waving the flag.”

Even the Swedish government admits Swedes rarely take pride in their country.

It made me think of one of the Soviet jokes they used to tell when we lived in Lithuania:

An announcement was made that all citizens must report to the town square the next morning. That morning a further announcement was made that everyone in town was to be hung the following morning at 9AM sharp. A hand went up. The commissar asked what the question was in a most irritable fashion.
One meek man quietly asked, "Do we have to bring our own rope?

Why, oh why, do the Swedes not just hold hands and walk into the Baltic Sea and get it all over with? Why this long, protracted suicide when they could show how virtuous and self-loathing they are by doing it in one day? Leave a sign that says, “Under New Management”.

Maybe we should just nuke Sweden and ease the pain of their self destruction!
Who’d miss ‘em anyway, roving packs of dirty Moslem rapists?
Sure…you’ll get all the Islamic terrorists there, and all the socialists, Globalists, radical Feminazis and beta males, as well as all the gamma, delta and epsilon males too…all in one fell swoop.

The Swedish government is promoting their own cultural genocide, this is beyond pathetic. Why should the citizens gives a rats ass that their national holiday coincides with Ramadan!? It’s the Islamists that demanded this, and the government capitulated once again.
