While the Saint Hans' Witch was burned up by meter-high flames on Amager Beach, chief-mayoral candidate Klaus Bondam took the pedestal and dealt out tough words.

There was a meter-high bonfire on the grass plain. Food on the single use grills in the warm air. And uproar from the pedestal.

At the National Union of Gay and Lesbian St. Hans festival on Amager beach the radical chief mayoral candidate in Copenhagen, Klaus Bondam, used his fireside talk to speak angrily against the hate crime phenomenon.

"Completely Absurd"

The phenomenon means episodes where gays and lesbians get attacked - often on the way home from discos and bars.

Most recently, a group of second generation immigrants with clubs waited in front of a gay bar in downtown Copenhagen.

"It's completely absured that people from one minority - a little group of frustrated second "gen-ers", who feel a excluded in this society - are going around and hitting on people from another minority, homosexuals. What the hell is this? This can't go on," said Klaus Bondam, who was supported by applauding listeners.

Exactly how big the problem is in Denmark isn't documented.

Bound together in fear

But for our Swedish neighbors, a study from 1999 shows that 1/4 of all lesbians and more than 1/3 of all gays have experienced "hate crime".

"I'm appalled that this happens in our city too, where partaking in nightlife ought to be associated with joy, tolerance, energy and lust for life. Now suddenly it's associated with fear. That simply doesn't work. We won't be a part of that," said Bondam and promised to do what he could "to bring this problem to light."

Klaus Bondam went on to wish everyone a good evening, and the fire quickly turned into a bonfire sending a thick dark pillar of smoke into the air.

This is what happens when you create "rainbow-alliances" to bring down the White, heterosexual male. You end up beaten up by non-White heterosexual males. :D

No, they haven't. They have SAID that they were, when asked in surveys. Good science is based on not taking everything that people say at face-value.

I don't remember how they defined "hate crime" either, wouldn't be surprised if it included questions like "have you ever felt discriminated against because of your sexual orientation?". With the victim-mentality prevalent in todays society, I am surprised not all the questioned homosexuals answered "yes".

He knows he can get away with saying this because he's from a section of society which is supported by political correctness.

I wonder what would have become of a normal man who dared to speak disparagingly of immigrants.
