Compares Government To Taliban

Compares Government To Taliban

Published December 12, 2012

Conservatives in Reykjavík posted a photo – which has since disappeared – likening the current leftist government to the Taliban.
DV shows the photo in question, featuring Social Democrat MP Helgi Hjörvar, Interior Minister Ögmundur Jónasson and Leftist-Green chairperson Steingrímur J. Sigfússon depicted as members of the Taliban (the original, un-Photoshopped image can be seen here).
The image was originally posted on the Facebook page of the Independence Party of Grafarvogur. While it was shared by the group, it now appears to have been removed from their page.
Despite the harsh depiction, Helgi appears to have taken it in stride, telling reporters, “I originally thought this was made by the Young Conservatives, but I was pretty surprised to find out adults made this. I’m just lucky I didn’t see it.” It should be noted that Helgi has severely impaired vision.
Helgi is referring to a flyer made by the Young Conservatives earlier this fall advertising an event entitled “The Fight Against Socialism”. The flyer featured a collage of different world leaders, among them US president Barack Obama.
