From Sweden with love

A fishy story

This portrait turned up on Twitter, designed by someone from Sweden as a tribute to 45's now-famous reference on Feb. 18 to a fictitious terror attack in Sweden.

"We've got to keep our country safe," he said. "You look at what's happening in Germany. You look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible."

In that comment, we see dt's favorite rhetorical device: repetition.  If you say something 3-4 times, it becomes more true each time.

Here's more humor from Sweden after this fake news:

Seriously, though, he couldn't remember exactly what he heard Friday while watching Fox news.  He didn't know the source was a 10-minute video posted on You Tube in December.

Impaired memory + grandiosity + confusion + simple thinking + shrinking vocabulary = dementia (perhaps Alzheimer's Disease)

On YouTube, the filmmaker, Ami Horowitz, described his ten-minute film this way: "Rape and violence has exploded across Sweden due it's immigration policies. Watch to see what Sweden has done to itself."
The film, called "Stockholm Snydrome," reached a small audience when Horowitz posted it in December. It suddenly gained international attention thanks to a Fox segment on Friday and a presidential mention on Saturday.
