STOCKHOLM (FRIA TIDER). A macabre scene with racist undertones took
place on Saturday when Swedish minister of culture Lena Adelsohn
Liljeroth attended a tax funded party for the Stockholm cultural
elite. The self-proclaimed "anti-racist" Liljeroth declared the party
officially started by slicing a piece of a cake depicting a
stereotypical African woman.
Photos from the party at World Art Day have already been released on
Facebook and are now going viral in social media.
The shocking photos show several established left-wing members of the
Stockholm cultural elite watching and laughing as Minister of Culture
Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth slices a cake depicting a black African woman
with minstrel-esque face.
Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth was invited to open the festivities by
performing a clitoridectomy on the cake, which she did by slicing off
the part of the cake depicting female genitalia. She then proceeded to
feed that part of the cake to a performance artist, done up in
blackface, his head protruding through the table.
The body screams every time someone slices a piece.
The events that unfolded at the party stand in stark contrast to Lena
Adelsohn Liljeroth’s official political positions. Publicly she
advocates a strict hard-line approach against racism. When in 2010 the
Swedish nationalist newspaper Nationell Idag managed to acquire enough
subscribers to qualify for state-funded press subsidies she
immediately took action to change the country’s press subsidy laws.
- It is distasteful to support extremist newspapers, Lena Adelsohn
Liljeroth was quoted as saying in the government publication Riksdag &
Departement, promising measures to deprive newspapers with ”racist”
content of press subsidies.
- Although this is a question of freedom of expression, we dont want
taxpayers’ money to support this form of media, she further noted.
Why government funds should be used to pay for cakes such as the one
served last weekend, has yet to be explained by Liljeroth.
