A failed 'Swedish flag' hoax shows the decline of the extremist 4chan message board
Internet pranksters tried to start a hoax campaign to change the cross on the Swedish flag to a Turkish-style crescent and star. Although a few people were tricked, the lacklustre response to the campaign co-ordinated on 4chan could be a sign that the extreme message board's influence on internet culture is starting to wane.

They will need to get rid of the Scandinavian Cross on the flag.

Doesn't it bother you at all that you constantly get caught spreading lies?

Pretty much every time I check out the validity of one of your meme's it turns out to be a hoax started by someone who knows gullible people will spread it.

I'm not sure he's aware that he's being duped into spreading fake news so I look at it as trying to help the guy out.

It will come true!

Here is a 2011 article regarding Switzerland and their Cross in their flag....it's coming. Just like changing of national anthems...

Immigrants Want Cross Removed from Swiss Flag

An immigrant group based in Bern has called for the emblematic white cross to be removed from the Swiss national flag because as a Christian symbol it "no longer corresponds to today's multicultural Switzerland."

Ivica Petrusic, the vice president of [email protected] Plus, a lobbying group that represents mostly Muslim second-generation foreigners in Switzerland (who colloquially are known as secondos) says the group will launch a nationwide campaign in October to ask Swiss citizens to consider adopting a flag that is less offensive to Muslim immigrants.

Even the EU is in the game trying to abolish Crosses of European nations...

This changing of flags has been going on for a few years now.

So it's only going to heat up as mass migration changes the face of Europe...

EU Wants To Abolish Cross From Greek Flag?

Image

On March 25, on the occasion of the Greek Independence Day Parade, the “new” Greek flags which fluttered in the wind in many Greek cities, appeared with only blue and white stripes, without the cross symbol of Christianity.

In the past few months, there have been reports in the Greek media that the European Union has been seriously discussing the possibility of abolishing religious symbols from six out of 27 EU countries that have the cross symbol on their flags: Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Great Britain, Malta and Greece.

From 2015...so it isn't new Swedish flag bashing. More globalist destruction of nations.

The War Against the Swedish Flag

How love of country became racism.


Image
Symbol of oppertion..

In Sweden, the message of an extreme left organization is usually not isolated. Their call to burn the flags was spread to politicians like Foujan Rouzbeh, parliamentary candidate for the Feminist Initiative, a party that has a seat in the European Parliament. Rouzbeh wrote on Twitter on national day in 2014:

"To desecrate the flag tomorrow is to say that enough is enough now. Tear all the barriers, smash all the walls. Down with the nation-state! Long live us"[11] [12]

A letter to the editor of the Swedish union newspaper "Kollega" from 2015 asks: "Dare we now keep the Swedish flag on our walls without being racist?"[13] This is a question that more and more Swedes ask today because one incident after another shows that the Swedish flag is being challenged by sectors of the Swedish society. It is a legitimate question to ask because putting the Swedish flag on the balcony of your residence has in establishment and media circles become a symbol of xenophobia.[14]

Fake news from the left.... [icon_lol2.gif]

No, this is satire, it is not intended to be factual and the vast majority of people would recognise it as such. That said, in future, for your benefit, I will make sure to label my submissions as such where appropriate. Could you do the same on your posts where they are representing things not factually correct or are intentionally misleading?
"Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." Explains why so few people reply to me, and why I might not reply
