This is not surprising but neither should it go without comment.
Sweden has elected what bills itself as the “first feminist government in the world.” Allegedly, this is what it means:
Sweden has the first feminist government in the world. This means that gender equality is central to the Government’s priorities – in decision-making and resource allocation. A feminist government ensures that a gender equality perspective is brought into policy-making on a broad front, both nationally and internationally. Women and men must have the same power to shape society and their own lives. This is a human right and a matter of democracy and justice. Gender equality is also part of the solution to society’s challenges and a matter of course in a modern welfare state – for justice and economic development. The Government’s most important tool for implementing feminist policy is gender mainstreaming, of which gender-responsive budgeting is an important component.
This is what the government looks like:
One of the things that got this government attention recently was when the deputy prime minister used Twitter to poke fun at Donald Trump. Because, you know, anything you say about Trump just has to prove how funny and smart you are.

Keep in mind that this douchebaggery was hailed in a Forbes magazine column called “Most Powerful Women” under the headline Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Appears to Mock President Trump With All-Female Photo.
But, as always, cheap grace ends up being just that. Cheap grace. The shallowness of their committment to women’s rights has been evident for some time. They have been either unable or unwilling to enforce Swedish law in swaths of the nation where Muslim immigrants do their own thing and treat women pretty much like they lived in cold a Somalia that has better furniture and worse food.
The real proof of just how cowardly and debased this “feminist government” is was documented in a recent visit by a Swedish diplomatic mission headed by Ann Linde to Iran.

If you go back to the group picture of the Swedish government, Ann Linde is at the far right of the photo. This is how she looked in Iran:
Because nothing says feminism and equality like hiding under a black bag.
It just goes to show a central fact about the left in general and about Euro-trash leftists in particular. They are brave and bold when poking fun at people who they know won’t hurt them. The are craven douches at the first hint of danger.
