Katien Olsson On Julian Assange – The Anti-Swede
THE Expressen‘s Karin Olsson on Julian Assange. The paper doesn’t seem to like him:
His attempts to depict Sweden as a banana republic that would ship him on to the United States is another sign of how desperate Assange has become. You can blame Sweden for lots of things – filthy weather, overrated crime novels, IKEA furniture – but to claim this country is the CIA’s accomplice, with an extremist law on sex crimes, irritates even his most loyal fans, of whom there are still a few..
Assange-the-hero vanished somewhere in that antisemitic and antifeminist slime. Sweden’s relatively high measure of sexual equality and consciousness in gender questions is a matter of national pride. That a dodgy hacker from Australia started knocking it was not popular.
