RIP Blue Europe

Sweden Braces for Week of Political Turmoil as Nationalists Gain

Two months after Sweden’s inconclusive election the country still has no government and the big winner so far is its right-wing nationalists.

It’s now facing what could be the most tumultuous week yet after the Sept. 9 vote, which saw the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats emerge as king-makers with none of the two establishment blocs emerging with a majority.

Although most people perceived Macron's remarks as being aimed at Trump who had recently identified as a nationalist, I suspect he may have been more addressing these factions/parties within Europe. Including, of course, "The National Front" of France. And now the Swedish nationalists.

What was I hearing about Macron and Rump get along?

Where did I hear that?

Nationalism is rising in popularity I presume primarily because of a handful of terrorists.

Macron publicly differentiated nationalism from patriotism, saying the two things were opposite.
