Self Loathing Scandinavian Advertisement

Recommended Posts

OverSword

I know this is 6 months old but I've never seen it on here so here goes. 

I have seen many times people online say that the west and especially the US has no real culture (most ridiculous thing ever imo).  SAS  should have paid attention to what happened to Gillette when they disparaged masculinity.

"What is truly Scandinavian? Absolutely nothing. Everything is copied," the SAS advert begins.

The iconic Swedish meatball, Danish pastry, and Scandinavian parental leave are then attributed to Turkey, Austria and Switzerland.

SAS said they believe they were the target of a co-ordinated online attack.

The advert pointed out that liquorice came from China, windmills were invented in Iran, and that the progressive politics the Nordics are known for originated in Greece and the US.

"We take everything we like on our trips abroad, adjust it a little bit, and it's a unique Scandinavian thing," the advert, which was taken down on Wednesday, claimed.

Danish & Co Noa agency produced the campaign, which SAS defended as highlighting how travel "inspires individuals and societies."

Politicians with Danish and Swedish anti-immigration populist parties criticised the message.

"What nonsense and self-hatred. Always tried to fly with SAS, but never again. That's a promise," secretary of the populist Sweden Democrats Richard Jomshof wrote on Facebook,

The entirety of human advancement is based on so called appropriation. Idiocy to feel any guilt about it.

It's a state of mind. Nobody should feel guilty for something they played no part in.

They are basicly trying to dilute national pride and a sense of being Swedish by re-writing Swedish history and culture, so as to reduce resistance to immigration !

I hate that.

There are some SJWs who converted to Quakerism in my Meeting that are just overflowing with "Whiteman's Burden".

I tell them all the time it wasn't them. They weren't there.

And the advertisement:

 

This is the action of liberal-socialists trying to attack Swedish Culture and Identity to promote a pro-immigration agenda.

Culture and identity perform a vital role in a society. Its a way in which a society inducts its population into the values of its grouping. It gives the members of that society an understanding of who they are, where they have come from, and where they are going. It creates a sense of belonging and togetherness needed for a cohesive society to function correctly.

Sweden needs to find itself a Trump.

:lol:

Most advertisements have nothing to do with reality!

They just want people to feel welcome no matter where they come from - however, they overdo the humbleness here, and that's why this is sickening.

And they're trying to do the same here too.

And they force you to pay for this propaganda with threats of prison, they don't even do that in North Korea.

Cracks me up the way SAS thinks they are the victims of an organized attack because of the amount of outrage this generated. No, it’s just very insulting to your client base. Idiots.
