Patriot for life

Affisch-For-alltid-patriotIn recent years the interest in “Swedish culture” has increased, especially among young working-class people of Swedish descent. A great deal of the patriotism is racist and Nazi. But a part of the patriotic movement claims to be non-politic and non-racist.

NJORD is a viking-rock band. They call themselves patriots and honour Sweden with their songs. BLACK WINGS is a group of young Yankee-car enthusiasts, that sometimes have conflicts with immigrants. MÅNEGARM is a pagan-rock band. They worship the Aesir.

“Patriot for life” depicts the nationalism among youths who do not view themselves as racists, but who are often viewed as such by others.
