Sweden on high alert over threat of Republican candidates

The country raised its terror level to ‘high’ on fear that Republican presidential candidates may be on the loose in Sweden and threatening to speak. The news comes after a barrage of increasingly nonsensical statements by Republicans about Syrians and refugees in the wake of Paris attacks last week.

“There are so many Republican candidates. We can’t possibly keep track of them, and they’re all so unbalanced,” a Swedish official said.

“If you see a Republican presidential candidate in Sweden, immediately put in earplugs to mitigate the risk of actually hearing what they have to say. Then run,” the official said.

Sources say Swedish intelligence overheard a candidate discussing a trip to Switzerland. The threat level was then raised to 'high' after gauging a 50-50 chance the candidate didn’t know the difference between Switzerland and Sweden.
