A funny clip of hot Swedish chicks from The Daily Show turns into a heated debate on the merits of socialism. Only in P&N.

Actually Sweden has a high rate of immigration, 18 % of the population are immigrants or have parents that immigrated. JS80 is of course an idiot for calling swedes xenophobes, what do you know about that? Sweden has a market economy just like the US, and if you look at the list of the worlds 50 richest people you'll find a couple of swedes there's plenty of rich people here too..

And the right-wingers. Seweden doesn't seem to have many of them, either, and they are a bigger obstacle to Swedish socialism working than illegals and minorities. Bye!

Of course a PN commie would think inter-european immigration really counts as immigration. I'll trade you one of our blonde hair blue eyed swedes for one of your blonde hair blue eyed norweigian :roll:

That's moronic, in the last 15 years most of the immigrants have come from the middle east. You have no idea what you are talking about but still you continue with your BS. That´s pretty sad.

Not only does your article not disprove anything, but it shows the disdain for minorities that plagues Sweden.

Actually it is usually along the lines of ignorant lefties thinking that America is the worst country on earth at everything.

Two extremes, both are incorrect, as is usually the case.

Exactly. The article he used had very few numbers, the ones it did show were of a very, very small refuge population, not of permanent immigrants. Not to mention it compares Sweden to Norway in attempting to show how much better off they would be without these refugees.

Sweden is very homogeneous.

He's true that a large number of Iraqi refugees have come to Sweden in recent years, but most immigrants are still European.

Well it's not a completely insubstantial number, but compared to a 9million+ population it's not a significant percentage of their population.

Some Swedish population breakdown with fun stats. =)

Don't forget to gut the trailer parks and Nascar-watching welfare communities in red states either.
I purposely excluded them. Swedes don't mind paying welfare to their fellow blonde blue eyed loser Swedes. But the hell they would pay to support illegal mexicans and perpetually welfared minorities.
You're kind of a fucking pig, you know that?

Of course you know better, I only live here.. In fact I live in a neighborhood were about 50 % are immigrants from the middle east, ex-yugoslavia etc. Of the 100 000 immigrants that came to Sweden in 2007, 50 % came from Europe incl. Turkey and 40+ % from Asia and Africa.

The fact that you live there is irrelevant. Numbers and facts mean more than your emotions and nationalism.

What you have posted contradicts your earlier post, too.
