THE HAGUE (JTA) — The president of Sweden’s Jewish communities said the country’s tourism agency should replace this week’s guest operator of the national Twitter account. The operator, Sonja Abrahamsson, during her stint on @Sweden has caused a stir with some references she made about Jews. She offered a crude comment about how to identify Jewish men and said it was difficult to tell Jews apart from non-Jews. “This woman’s tweets are more stupid than anti-Semitic,” Lena Posner-Korosi, president of the Council of Swedish Jewish Communities, told JTA on Thursday. “What is disconcerting is that VisitSweden has not terminated Abrahamsson’s stint even after her silly remarks. Letting Abrahamsson tweet for all of us will not make Sweden appear more attractive.” Abrahamsson, 27, is a guest tweeter for VisitSweden, a government-owned corporation; the guests change every week. The corporation hopes to make Sweden more attractive abroad by having ordinary Swedes write short messages on Twitter. An employee of VisitSweden said Thursday that no one from the corporation was available for comment on the matter. Abrahamsson’s tweets on Jews began Tuesday when she discussed how to identify a Jewish male. She then wrote, “In nazi German they even had to sew stars on their sleeves. If they didn’t, they could never now who was a jew and who was not a jew.” “Once I asked a co-worker what a jew is. He was ‘part jew,’ whatever that means. He’s like ‘uuuuh … jews are.. uh.. well educated..?” she wrote and mentioned that she grew up in a place with no Jews. Abrahamsson then apologized if her words were seen as offensive and said she didn’t understand why people hated Jews. Tommy Sollen, social media manager at VisitSweden, told The Wall Street Journal that the tourism agency would not interrupt Abrahamsson’s stint as national tweeter.
(Metro – VIDEO: @Sweden tweeter Sonja Abrahamsson mystifies us with ‘breastfolding’)(transparency: I used to sell advertising for a subsidiary of this Swedish company that owns the Metro and I can confirm they are bigots who fuck with Jewish Zionists)The woman at the helm of Sweden’s official Twitter account for the week continues to fascinate us with her mystifying tweets. Her latest obsession? The puzzling phenomenon of “breastfolding.” Sonja Abrahamsson, the 27-year-old mother of two who was chosen by the country to tweet for a week as part of a social experiment, captured the attention of the world when she used her platform to tweet all of her questions about Jews, (specifically what makes Jews different and how one can identify a Jew). Social experiments! Entranced by her broken English and stunning lack of self-awareness, we kept watch over her Twitter activity, desperate for more shockingly naive comments and random musings by a woman who claims she doesn’t spend much time thinking about the future but is “excited to know if we all die the 21st of December.” And again today, Sonja struck gold — this time in the form of “breastfolding.” What is breastfolding? Great question, and one we shared after Sonja sent out a mysterious tweet describing a video she made that went viral because of her “great ability.” Then Sonja did us all a favor and tweeted a link to the much-anticipated breastfolding video.
yeah… this doesn’t take any brains to put together a likely story of what is going on here. I feel bad for her kids.
