Twisting history to fit an idealogical point of view.
That is the crux of moral relativism, the twisting of facts and reason. The most notable twist here is the comparing of totalitarian jihadis with Swedes that nobly fought the totalitarian Soviet Union, as well as that, Swedes fighting Soviets weren’t interested in world take over, and cutting heads off the enemy to do it.

Linden, who also wrote on the affair, was outraged by the comments.
“This isn’t only preposterous, it’s also a very, very strange and twisted view of history. Those who went to Finland weren’t there for religious or political reasons, they were counts, they were Social Democrat workers. Many of them were there because the governing Social Democrats had encouraged people to help.”

The comments came on Tuesday during a seminar in Almedalen about Islamophobia. On hand were Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag and Green Party MP Mehmet Kaplan, who is the former spokesman for the Muslim Council of Sweden.
While the talk was mostly about Islamophobia, matters took a turn when the integration minister said that there was a problem with young Muslims heading to Syria to be jihadists, according to political scientist Stefan Olsson, who was on the scene.
Ullenhag’s comment prompted a reaction from Kaplan, who said the jihadists were nothing to worry about and were similar to Swedish freedom fighters who joined the Finns in World War Two to fight the Soviets.
