Political satire / Comedy / 2 min / 2017

About: This is a comment on Swedish policy.
Due to recent political statements (January 2017) I just want to repeat the obvious: say NO to racism.

If you’re not familiar with Swedish policy: The New Moderates (Nya Moderaterna or M) are established liberal-conservatives.
The Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna or SD) are relatively new in parliament, and they are national-conservatives.

Writer and director: Per Marklund
Cast: Per Marklund, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale
