Abstract
In this paper I have analysed the Moderate party (the leading and currently reigning
Swedish right wing party) party programme. My main purpose has been to elucidate
their capitalist/neoliberal discourse on constructing differences between Swedish

different and often contradictory discourses they are built up on and how they are
justified. I have also tried to place this in a bigger context to show what consequences
this could have for the defined different and for the construction of an imagined
Swedish culture. From a postcolonial feminist view I have focused on the
construction of identification, differences and alikeness, the ignored social and
economic implications for differentiation and the impact of race and racism in the
discourse. I have shown how the discourse of the Moderate party contributes to a
well-established political discourse on the problems on immigration and the
upcoming xenophobic movements in Sweden today. (Less)
