Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) temporarily pulled an online ad claiming that “there’s no such thing as Scandinavian culture” amid accusations that it’s racist, anti-white, and self-flagellating to the point of idiocy.
The bizarre video entitled “What is truly Scandinavian?” shows a montage of white Swedes, Norwegians, and Danes blankly reciting: “What is Scandinavian for real? Absolutely nothing. Everything is copied.”
The ad claims that the things people consider “Scandinavian” — like Swedish meatballs, open-face sandwiches and generous parental leave — were imported from other cultures and are not “truly” Scandinavian.
“We take everything we like on our trips abroad, adjust it a little bit, and it’s a unique ‘Scandinavian’ thing,” the ad claims.
For the record, ALL cultures around the world borrow elements from other cultures.
Scandinavian Airlines was using the left-wing propaganda to promote travel, saying it enriches people. Instead, the video sparked furious backlash from Swedes, Norwegians, and Danes, who called the commercial anti-white and disgraceful.
Søren Espersen — a spokesman for the populist Danish People’s party — said the ad offended him because it “spit on” millions of Scandinavians.
“I have always flown with SAS a lot, but I would have a bad taste in my mouth if I did it again because they spit on us like that,” Espersen told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.
Richard Jomshof, secretary of the populist Sweden Democrats party, wrote on Facebook: “What nonsense and self-hatred. I always tried to fly with SAS, but never again. That’s a promise.”
On Twitter, one guy mocked the SAS ad for showing a black man claiming that he’s a descendant of the Vikings.
David Vance tweeted: “New ad for Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) insists that “nothing is Scandinavian,” and that it’s all imported. The names of Thor and Odin, the lands of sauna, fjords, and Abba are all erased into oblivion.”

A Swedish Twitter user called for a boycott of SAS, tweeting: “I never imagined that SAS would deny millions of people their culture and inheritance to gain ‘woke’ points. Your new ad is truly disgraceful and horrible. I’m never flying SAS again, ever. Get woke, go broke.”
I never imagined that @sas would deny millions of people their culture and inheritance to gain “woke” points. Your new ad is truly disgraceful and horrible. Are you not ashamed of yourselves? What is the point? I’m never flying SAS again, ever. #gowokegobroke #boycottsas

A Norwegian man tweeted: “Never fly SAS. Boycott SAS. It’s okay to be Scandinavian.”

Still another Twitter user tweeted: “Scandinavian Airlines Posted an extremely offensive and racist ad on their social media channels. It is offensive to all Europeans and all white people around the world. A big PR mistake as it’s backfired!”

A Nordic woman tweeted: “Scandinavian Airlines @SAS has chosen to question the uniqueness of Scandinavian identity, culture and way of life. Whoever greenlit this is an enemy of Scandinavia and should be treated as such.”

This controversy spotlights the growing disgust that many Scandinavians are having with their left-wing governments, which insist on pushing anti-white propaganda while their countries are being barraged with refugees from the Middle East and Africa.
Sweden — which once boasted extremely low instances of rape — has now become the “Rape Capital of the West” shortly after mass-importing millions of migrants and refugees from Muslim nations in the Middle East and North Africa.

Ironically, Swedish feminists (among the most militant in the world) have remained totally silent on the rape epidemic targeting underage white girls across Europe.
The media in Sweden have refused to report news of the alarming rapes committed by migrants because they’re afraid of being called “racist” or “Islamophobic.”
As a result, thousands of young girls have been sacrificed at the altar of political correctness and toxic White Guilt.

Contrast SAS’ self-abasing, anti-white rhetoric with the militant advocacy of leftists, who would riot if anyone claimed that “There’s no such thing as black culture” or “There’s no such thing as Muslim culture.”
