Nihilist. Immigrant. Dendrophiliac.
En Arg Blatte Talar is the unofficial ambassador of Sweden. Or #SJWeden, since according to a common conservative joke online, Sweden is what Tumblr would look like if it were a country. His voice has garnered attention on YouTube for speaking out against the shibboleths of Sweden’s privileged elites. Known as the Angry Foreigner, he is the man responsible for the hugely successful video “Welcome to Sweden.” Told with expletives and biting sarcasm, “Welcome to Sweden” hilariously dismantles all the lies that the Swedish elites like to tell themselves, from “Diversity Makes Us Stronger” to the completely ridiculous “Swedes Have No Culture.” Judging by its runaway popularity, “Welcome to Sweden” has tapped into Sweden’s “Silent Majority”—a majority that is getting much louder and less scared about voting for a “right-wing extremist” party like the Swedish Democrats. Thanks to the popularity of “Welcome to Sweden,” the Angry Foreigner has surfaced in the English-speaking world, granting a few radio interviews. Also, given Sweden’s crime of choice, the Angry Foreigner frequently talks about rape cases, especially those that involve Muslim immigrants.
Listening to the Angry Foreigner, one gets the sense that there is a growing solidarity between the American right and the European right.
