Today’s giggle from a random Twitter account

The word ‘Sweden’ has its Twitter feed on my Tweetdeck. It used to be a good source of random events or facts about Sweden. Sometimes it flagged an event currently in the news. Sometimes a fascinating image from a bygone era that prompts some research.

Of late, most of the posts are regurgitated erroneous propaganda factoids. Sweden’s once liberal welcome to refugees (a bygone day with the reintroduction of ID checks crossing from Denmark – not done in over 50 years) has placed it as the anti-Muslim, anti-refugee whipping post.

The warning is “Sweden took in refugees. Now look at the carnage. Let’s learn from their example and not follow.”

  • get their game on

So I read a bit more in the feed seeking more chuckles. It didn’t take many tweets. I could even forgive the spelling error for the deliciousness of the irony.

And perhaps the following tweet is taken out of context. Or maybe true patriots die for their countries by proxy via their relatives.

And now I am sure the intentions are noble, but just having read a run of acerbic tweets hating on pretty much every group out there (and especially Obama)  I just couldn’t help myself anymore when I read this one:

So I had to write it up. And so I did.

That is all.
