After WWI we had a population exchange between Turkey and Greece to prevent future wars. Also after WW2 ethnic groups were moved into separated nation states and Germans from all over east Europe moved to Germany…to remove the seeds of future wars. Now this wisdom seems to have been forgotten, liberal idiots think human nature is infinitely malleable. It is not, allowing these mass movements of people to go unchecked is like playing with fire, it is the cause of all this rise in ‘xenophobia’..because if your government doesn’t protect your people…well the people have to do it themselves.

Basically that is what #jagärhär actually is. Zealot activists dedication excessive amounts of time on distorting the online representation of general public opinion only adds to the feeling of betrayal.
Betrayal by politicians, journalists and just about everybody calling themselves ‘progressive’ or ‘left wing’.

It speaks of the perceived failure of our collective governments to anticipate and initiate any meaningful action in regards to the migration issue. It is a rejection of their retreat into denial and their impotence in managing the situation. This leads to these expressions of anger that say, we need to fix this ourselves as our representatives are too busy hiding behind their chairs. Flooding the media with fake feel-good messages is just another false solution, the rot will continue.
