Sweden, the country, has been doing this ill-ass thing wherein they let a regular Swede take over the account for a week, and Tweet whatver they like. This week’s has been causing a great big shit storm for not being particularly politically correct, and is evidently some kind of comedy genius. Also, her question regarding Jews is totally valid, I had the exact same question when I was younger. I was genuinely baffled as to how white people could be racist against other white people. I remember asking my history teacher, “how could they be racist against other white people though? How could they tell who was a jew and who wasn’t? Was it the curly hair?”
EDIT: The Curators of Sweden site reveals that all this legendary behaviour is courtesy of one Sonia Abrahamson, who provides the following bio:
My name is Sonja and I’m a 27-year old womanlike human being from northern Sweden. I grew up in a little itsy bitsy village called Latikberg, witch means cloudberry montain in native swedish (samiska?). All people there are relatives and they all own tractors. In the autumn we had to pick up potatoes, in the winter we shoveled snow, in the spring we were confused and the summer forced us into growing thick skin and made us the bad motherf*ckers we are. Because of the big swarms of mosqitos that will drain you on blood until death unless you can take it.
When I was 19 years old I took my stuff (including my boyfriend) and moved to Gothenburg. Then I got pregnant two times in a row. Now I’m a single and low educated mother, but at least I don’t do drugs and prostitution. Instead I have a blog and I write things, and I also talk on national radio from time to time. I dont know what I want to do in the furure. Thinking about the future is not my speciality, apparently. But I’m excited to know if we all die the 21st of December.
I’m happy to leave my ordinary Twitter account @hejsonja (witch means hellosonja) to tweet for @sweden. I’m gonna tweet about my thoughts and being me, about having children and living my life and what not.
Ms Abrahamson also shares my views on television. RIGHTEOUSNESS AND RIGHTEOUSITY! @sweden is the best national twitter feed of all time. Amen.
