Feminists lose elections in Iceland

The feminist understanding of the world is, at least for the moment, rejected in the Icelandic State.

On April 27 the Icelandic voting population was called to the ballot box to decide who is going to lead the tiny North-Western European nation for the next 4 years. In the last elections, only 7 parties participated in the competition but now, following a deep financial collapse and strong attempts by the feminists from the leading Green Left Movement (the most vocal party from the leftist coalition that formed the government in 2009) to suppress free speech and attempt to place the Internet under the control of the State[1], 15 parties participated in the elections, most of them with an euro-skeptic and anti-Statist platform.

Our Icelandic correspondent, Sigurdur Jonsson, predicted on the AVFM Voice of Europe Radio Show at the end of March that the feminist dominated Left Green Movement would be rejected — as the resentment of the population for their “incompetence” was increasing[2].

It seems he was right.

The party that got the most votes was the libertarian euro-skeptic Sjálfstæðisflokkurinn (The Independence Party) with 26.70% of the votes, translating into 19 seats in the Parliament. Placing second was liberal euro-skeptic Framsóknarflokkurinn (The Progressive Party) with 24.43% of the votes,  also resulting 19 seats in the Parliament. Both of the first two parties went through an increase in votes with 3% and respectively 9.63% in comparison with the previous elections.

The 3rd and the 4th parties in the final table are the former parties that used to lead the country. The third party in the final table is Samfylkingin (The Social Democratic Alliance) with 12.85% of the votes (down almost 17% from the previous elections) and the fourth party is Vinstrihreyfingin – grænt framboð (The Left Green Movement) with only 10.87% (down almost 12% from the previous elections). There are also two new parties that have entered into the new Parliament and these are Björt Framtíð (The Bright Future Party – left leaning liberals) and Píratar (The Pirate Party of Iceland) which is basically a party based on the idea that the Internet should remain just like it is now[3][4].

What does this mean?

For starters, the presence of the Pirate Party in the Parliament will mean that the freedom of the online environment will have a defender in a country that just tried to pass regulations similar to those enforced in Iran and China.

Secondly, the spectacular debacle of the Left Green Movement, which is essentially the Feminist Party in Iceland, shows that the overwhelming majority of Icelanders may be veering away from their ideology.

There is no doubt that the debacle of the moderate leftists from the Social Democrats happened for many reasons, but feminism is likely one of them given that feminist ideology has dominated their rhetoric for at least the last 12 months.

This is the second time

In November 2011, the Spaniards cast away the party that gave power to the feminists in an unprecedented debacle for PSOE[5]. Now, at the end of April 2013, the Icelanders are casting away the party that gave power to the feminists and the government led by the lesbian feminist Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir.

This trend may continue to gain pace. You can track events to come using this list of feminist MEPs.

    Women do 80 percent of the consumer spending, buying worthless crap that is destroying the planet. We need a proper green movement that has genuine concern for the environment, but like all left wing movements, feminism has hijacked it.

    Banning porn is just hatred of male sexuality too. Glad I don’t live in iceland.

    • The Real Peterman

      You’d think the world faced bigger problems than men looking at nudie pictures, wouldn’t you?

    • Rad

      One movement based on coercion and redistribution was hijacked by another movement based on coercion and redistribution? Ya don’t say.

      I’d wager a non-fundamentalist porn ban is more likely a result of some women (two-baggers who have an incentive to consider this stuff) not wanting to compete with other women (the hot ones), so they want control. The men are just the chattel being herded, as they always are. If that advocacy could speak it would say, “When men can no longer cum on their keyboards, they are more likely to have to settle and thus cum in fuglies/mass baggage holders such as myself.”.

    • 98abaile

      Sadly that (subjectively) worthless crap actually has very (objectively) real economic value that the world runs on.

  • Near Earth Object

    Minn tími mun koma!

    Thank you for this most welcome report, Lucian.

  • Kimski

    Three down so far, i.e. Spain, Norway, and Iceland.

    The rest of the world to go.

    • http://vilo13.blogspot.com/ Lucian Vâlsan

      Well, I would not be hurrying into saying that the Norwegian feminists are down, considering who is leading Norway at this point.
      We will see what happens in September.

      Yes, following the Hjernevask series, the feminists in the Norwegian State have suffered a great defeat – but they are not down yet – at least not to the extent to which they are down in Spain and Iceland.

      • Kimski

        Hope springs eternal, Lucian. ;)

    • MGHOW_AU

      Dunno about the rest of the world, but Australia is having an election in September, and I hope the ALP(to be a member of the ALP, you must be on “Emily’s list” – which is, for lack of better wording, a registry of/for Feminists) fails to stay in power, even at the risk of losing 100Mbit “fibre to the home” – hey, I’m a geek, but I’m not heartless!

      • gwallan

        You do not need to be a member of Emily’s List to join the ALP.

  • donzaloog

    One by one, they will fall.

  • MGTOW-man

    Excellent news. Now if we can make this happen all over the planet.

    It serves them right. If they hadn’t planned on censoring the net, to rid it of truth-telling they despise because it does NOT represent their conveniences/feelings/emotions in which they want to replace reality and commonsense with their biased and contrived replacement scheme, then they might have stood a chance.

    Let them learn from this. If you try to shut us up and deny us our civil right to speak and to watch what we want to watch performed by willing participants, then it will come back on you to haunt you.

    Besides, the only reason they hate pornography is because men are naturally dominant in sex with women (men also have to do most all the work in sex while the women wait for their orgasms and have the audacity to complain about it if they do not acheive one—as if her orgasm is HIS responsibility!!!) If it were the other way around, with women dominating men in sex, then just like all the other double-talking of theirs and special preferential treatment for women only—which often is illegal/unconstitutional and cruel to males—they would have absolutely no problem with porn.

    It is just another way to prove they are mad they weren’t born male…the sex they misunderstan… and mistake responsibilities/accountabilities to be “priviliges.”

    On free speech, if MHRA’s are so wrong, why not let it be witnessed by the masses, with egg all over our faces? What could be a better advocate for feminism than for anti-feminists, etc to be proven wrong by their own doings?

    Ahhh, that is exactly what they are afraid of…letting us speak…because they know we are right and most people are practicaly in agreement with us, which scares them because it threatens their monopoly on what is “fair”.

    I vacationed in Iceland for a few days a while back. It’s an interesting place.

    • Near Earth Object

      It is a very interesting place.
      Lunar-like in places…with every turn of the corner, something new and breathtakingly beautiful.
      Iceland seems to be a two-time example of people taking their country back: first from Big Money and now with Feminism. It they can do it, it can be done.

  • MGTOW-man

    Bravo! Excellent News! Now if we can make this happen all over the planet.

    It serves them right. If they hadn’t tried to censor the net, rid us of our right to speak and to watch what we want to watch, performed by willing participants, then they might have stood a chance.

    Besides, the only reason they hate pornography is becasue men are naturally dominant in sex. If the other way around and women were dominant, then, like most other things they talk out both sides of their mouths, they would have no problem with porn.

    Besides, OT, but realted…men do most all the work in sex with women waiting for their orgasms. But if they fail to have one, then of course, they blame men for it as if women’s orgasms are the men’s responsibility.

    On free speech. If MHRA’s and antifeminists are so wrong then why not let it be proven by the very words they/we speak, with egg all over our faces? What better advocate for feminism?

    Ahhh, but that is exactly what they are afraid of. They do not want us to speak the truth which will derail their contrived and biased synthetic replacement scheme.

    The truth is not hatred, but ohhh, how it is hated!

    • tango

      “Besides, the only reason they hate pornography is becasue men are naturally dominant in sex.”

      I’m not sure about this 100% but I do keep seeing the same argument from feminists, that gay (male) porn is misogynist because the receiver in a sex act is ‘parodying women’s sexual role to degrade women’. They sure do have a complex…

      • MGTOW-man

        It doesn’t surprise me and shouldn’t any man, to learn that things unrelated to women (completely unrelated) will still be made into something about women—and of course, denigrating. Heck, even if the subject were about Adam’s apples in the necks of males, somehow feminist-minded women (conscious of it or not) will turn the discussion into something about themselves.

        That is something I find particularly irritating consistent with all the women in which I have had any form of intimacy.

        Somewhat OT, but not really, given that the theme permeates, but even Barbara Bush did this “switchover” when she said Jeb Bush should not run for president. She was making the question be something about her and how tired SHE is and how SHE wants an end to…. If those type of women could just stop making everything about themselves, perhaps some of the criticism would fade.

        However, I do not think those women see themselves doing what they do. Proof they are oblivious and that their emotions cause them to have alternate perspectives that evade rationality/objectivity and thus are not fit for group rule-making and often not even for public discussion.

        THIS is what we are fighting folks!

    • JGteMolder

      Considering that there is femdom porn, and the sex-fantasy of a woman being dominant in sex (albeit not full on BDSM) is higher on the list for men than being the dominant one, I would have to say that men are NOT naturally dominant.

      It’s much more likely that the majority of women are naturally submissive (which fits with 57% of them having rape and submissive fantasies) and expect men to be dominant that the large majority of men fulfill this sexual role expected of them because it pleases the woman; as opposed to doing it because they want to themselves.

      Knowing this, there is an interesting observation to be made about the porn that has largely sex where the man is dominant while being made for men: either the men gravitating towards making this porn – that is the ones running the show, not merely the actor – are the group of men that are dominant, which does indeed fit with seeking an in charge role in their employment, and simply think all men are like this. Or, they themselves are so bereft of their own sexual identity, that even while making pron mostly for men, they take on roles pleasing to women.

  • Jay

    Positive news. Positive news.

  • napocapo69

    Still Left parties “seem” not to realize how futile is the “consensus” bought via feminist politics; it last 5-10 years until the people realize how divisive is such policy and move their political preference elsewhere, radically.
    I’ve seen it also in Italy, where the major Left parties do not realize yet that their Euro-integralist and feminist policies have alienated people living in the real world with real problems, who find difficult to align their lives to an EU bureaucracy that is imposing social engineering directives and gender equality dogmas, instead of aiming at recovery of economy and at respect of different cultures.

    Iceland case is emblematic. Few years ago it seemed an enlightened country that had a the core of its values, the defense of the free speech (wikileaks, and other hackers cases). Than the new wave imposed by EU feminist hysteria drove that country to try to align with bigotry and repression of free speech.

    Good to see that people in Iceland is still able to send signs to politicians; will they be able to catch them?

  • Winstone

    Lucian, actually this is the 3rd time. A few years ago there was the debacle of the Swedish “feminist party” (around 0.5%, just a bit above the Donald Duck party, that was launched as a joke)

    • http://vilo13.blogspot.com/ Lucian Vâlsan

      It’s obvious that I meant only in recent months.
      If we were to take the entire 20th and 21st century into account, this is probably the 10th time – but that wasn’t the point.

      Moreover, the Swedish feminist party (I presume you refer to “Feministiskt initiativ”) was never actually in power at the national or local level.
      If I got your comment wrong, please do correct me.

  • RM1970

    The feminists wanted ban the pornography, and the people rejected them, well I have one slogan :

    “Wankers of the world unite”.

  • feeriker

    Good news, but continued vigilance is required. Feminists, like statists of all party/ideological labels, don’t play nice when power is taken from them.

  • James Williams

    Thanks for cheering my evening Lucian. You are doing a great job. The Fems, like all extremists are not democrats and will simply seek other ways of getting around the will of the people.

    • http://vilo13.blogspot.com/ Lucian Vâlsan

      Generally, you are correct.
      However, the city I live in is larger (in terms of population) than Iceland. And I don’t even live in a top 3 city of Romania – and Romania itself isn’t a country with big cities.

      The point I’m trying to make is that if you try to override the will of the population, you can literally have the entire country knocking at your door and FTSU. This is the reason why it’s harder in Iceland than anywhere else in the Scandinavian world to actually impose draconian measures without immediate backlash from the population.

      • Kimski

        The way I see it, these countries are perfect examples of the ‘critical mass theory’. Especially Iceland, with its low population number, makes it possible to view the impact of feminism on a petri dish-scale, and thereby the probable reaction of the larger countries populations to that ideology’s demands.
        Although Norway are not there yet, the ‘Hjernevask’-series has raised a general awarenesss in the Norweigian population, that ‘there is something rotten in the state of Norway’. And we both know that feminists can’t leave well enough alone, since their ideology thrives on raising the bar and expansion, so it will be interesting to see how the next demand is handled in that particular country.
        Would it then be that far off to think that we’ll eventually see the same things happen in other countries, in light of the financial crisis and those ever-increasing demands, that no country can keep affording today ?

        • harrywoodape

          I like your ‘petri dish’ explanation. I think the globofems see places like Iceland as such. Also, the Nordic cultures have spawned some very radical feminist ‘thinkers’..so these little countries are also strongholds for them.
          However, they will eventually reach the same conclusion that I have…that any openly feminist government anywhere requires martial law and a ahem…non-competitive environment ie totalitarian social control in order to exist. It doesnt matter where it is or how big or small the country is.
          The benefit for them beta-testing it in smaller economies/countries is that it won’t get as much press…ALL THE MORE REASON TO REPORT IT :)

          Great news, Lucian! Thanks.

    Thank you, Lucian. Not only for bringing good news, but for making a political article palatable. I love your style.

  • Hf

    “…15 parties participated…”

    15 parties, well isnt that somethin. What do we get, two? Maybe three, if we’re lucky?

  • Turbo

    Thanks Lucian, that is great news.
    If there are no other elections between now and September 14th let us hope that the next Feminist dominated government to fall is the Australian government.

    The once great Australian Labour Party used to represent the working class, the working family, the working man if you like.

    This party is now so completely infested with the feminist parasite that the host is completely unrecognizable.
    They no longer represent the working man, they despise and attack him.

    The opposition Liberal Party will certainly not be utopia for the MHRM, but a better alternative than the AL(Fem)P.

    Roll on September 14.

    • Kimski

      At least the Liberal Party won’t be handling opposition to their policies as a personal attack on ‘Team Woman’.

      That alone should make it a hell of a lot easier to negotiate with them later.

  • StraightBrownMale

    Good. Resist feminism worldwide.
