    An Open Letter to Barack Obama: On Danish Racism

    I got a chuckle out of this...

    An Open Letter to Barack Obama: On Danish Racism

    Dear Mr. President!

    We respectfully request a few moments of your precious time for an important message. Thank you!

    In the spirit of optimism, and the courage to hope for real change which has been kindled throughout the world by the historic election in the United States, we hope to bring to your personal attention, and to the awareness of the American public the distressing state of affairs in our own highly privileged corner of the world.

    We wish to express our deep concern at the incremental rise of racism and the use of racist propaganda in mainstream Danish politics over the past decade.

    Ethnic and religious minorities are demonized and marginalized. Discrimination and hate-filled rhetoric reminiscent of anti-Semitic propaganda of the 1930's has become an accepted part of the Danish political debate.

    This especially affects African ethnic minorities, Arabian ethnic minorities and Muslim religious minorities.

    The following are quotes from elected members of the Danish and European Parliaments:

    Danish member of the European Parliament, Mogens Camre:

    »Let me state it clearly: Muslims ought to live in Muslimland - and that's not here«

    »There is no place for Islam in Europe and our first priority must be to repatriate the Muslims«

    Member of the Danish Parliament, Pia Kjaersgaard:

    On immigrants from developing countries living in Denmark: »Thousands upon thousands of people who spiritually, culturally and with regard to civilization, are plainly still in the year 1005«

    Member of the Danish Parliament, Jesper Langballe:

    »The Old Testament is an altogether Christian book which the Jewish religion has misused, with no actual right to do so«

    Member of the Danish Parliament, Soeren Krarup:

    »It is absolutely grotesque that people from Somalia, Sri Lanka and the Far East should be able to call themselves refugees in Denmark«

    »Islam is a new totalitarian plague sweeping Europe«

    Member of the Danish Parliament, Martin Henriksen:

    »Islam has since its inception been a terrorist movement«

    »Islam is by its very nature an evil, which must and will be combatted«

    Member of the Danish Parliament, Kristian Thulesen Dahl:

    »In many ways we are anti-Muslim«

    The quotes above are not simply the usual xenophobic rantings of minor internet based extremists. They are the words of Danish politicians popularly elected to the European and Danish Parliaments with one thing in common - they are all members of the same political party: The Danish People's Party (Dansk Folkeparti).

    Sometimes members of this party are even more outspoken:

    »All Muslims must be thrown out of Denmark« (Vagn Eriksen)

    »All Muslims must leave Denmark. It's a harsh thing to say, some of them are human beings, but how are we to sort them out?« (Ib Krog Hansen)

    In 2001 the Danish People's Party's Youth Organization ran this campaign in posters and ads:

    YOUR DENMARK?

    A multiethnic society with:

    - Mass rapes

    - Crude violence

    - Insecurity

    - Supression of women

    - Forced marriages

    IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT?

    Do something - be a member of

    THE DANISH PEOPLE'S PARTY'S YOUTH ORGANIZATION

    - A Danish future


    The same year the Danish People's Party published this book:

    THE FUTURE OF DENMARK

    Your country

    Your choice ...


    In May 2008 the Danish People's Party ran this campaign in all major Danish newspapers:

    ALLAH IS EQUAL BEFORE THE LAW

    SUBMISSION

    GIVE US BACK DENMARK


    The Danish People's Party is demonizing minorities with the same rhetoric that was once used to demonize Jews and Afro-Americans, distorting their intentions and beliefs. Yet they have been the most influential political party of the past decade, dictating policy on ethnic and religious minorities.

    Let us not forget how the Nazis seduced the German people into hating the Jews - by constant claims that Jews were a threat to everybody else.

    Julius Streicher, Nazi Propagandist, in 1925:

    »Jewish values and rules of conduct permit and even necessitate that which is forbidden for the non-Jew because of his Christian belief. The Jew must reproduce, deceive, bear false witness and when expedient, he may even kill people«

    Pia Kjaersgaard, leader of the Danish People's Party, in 2000:

    »The Quran teaches Muslims it is acceptable for them to lie and deceive, cheat and swindle as much as they like«

    Hermann Esser, Nazi writer on Jews, in 1939:

    »They come as 'foreigners,' as 'beggars', slinking and groveling, with false humility and dishonest respect. Once they have swindled their way to something, they become thieves and bloodsuckers«

    Mogens Camre, MEP for the Danish People's Party, in 1999:

    »Muslims come with a beggar's staff in their hand, but as soon as they're in from the cold it becomes a stick to beat us with«

    This is how they are stereotyping and stigmatizing people, by demonizing and denouncing a minority in general as a menace to society.

    We are not accusing the Danish People's Party of Nazi-sympathies, but history has repeatedly showed how quickly this kind of propaganda can take on a critical momentum of its own when used by influential politicians to stigmatize ethnic or religious groups.

    And we are not the only ones to criticize the political development in Denmark over the last decade, the international media has been here too:

    The Washington Post: »A wave of anti-Muslim sentiment has bolstered far-right parties (...) The changing mood has found its fullest political expression here in Denmark, where an anti-immigrant party won 12 percent of the vote (...) Its campaign posters featured a picture of a young blond girl and the slogan: 'When she retires, Denmark will have a Muslim majority'.« (March 29, 2002).

    Financial Times: »While most Danes would be loath to admit it, there are some uncomfortable parallels between the new measures and some of Mr. Le Pen’s stated policies.« (May 3, 2002).

    Neue Zürcher Zeitung: »By court order, the head of the DPP, Pia Kjaersgaard, may not be labeled 'racist', but she keeps things humming in her own party's ranks with frequent xenophobic utterances (...) referring to Sweden's relatively open policy toward foreigners, Kjaersgaard remarked that the Stockholm regime was perfectly free to let Swedish cities become Scandinavian Beiruts, replete with mass rapes, revenge killings and clan wars.« (June 19, 2002).

    The Guardian: »On the same day as it takes over the EU's prestigious rotating presidency and begins to broker a common EU asylum policy, the new laws will turn Denmark, overnight, into one of the world's most hostile places for asylum seekers.« (June 29, 2002).

    International Herald Tribune: »Denmark has in the past decade become one of the most anti-immigrant countries in Europe, with Muslims the object of great hostility. It was a Danish newspaper that, in 2005, published the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that flared into an international crisis. A major factor has been the rise of the openly anti-immigrant Danish People’s Party ...« (November 26, 2007).

    In November 2008 the American ambassador to Denmark, James P. Cain, suggested that Denmark might learn something from the United States:

    »Americans in some point of our history decided that it was more important to have an ordered, integrated, diverse, peaceful, secure, harmonious society – harmonious racially, harmonious from an ethnic perspective and harmonious religiously – than it was to each have the individual right to insult our neighbours, to incite violence, to draw offensive cartoons just for the heck of it.« (Deadline, November 12, 2008)

    Mr. President. We honestly have no idea if this message will reach you - but we have the audacity of hope.

    And perhaps the Danish government has learned a lesson or two from the American election in 2008?

    Therefore we sincerely hope that you will take the opportunity to raise these pivotal matters with the Danish government and point out the danger of espousing the policies of the Danish People's Party. We believe the government will listen to you if you choose to criticize the influence of the Danish People's Party when the opportunity presents itself. Thank you!

    Yours truly
    Jacob Holdt and Rune Engelbreth Larsen

    To summarize they are writing to a foreign power asking them to interfere in Danish domestic politics; trying to get a foreign president of mixed race to demolish the Danish People's Party who are trying to preserve Danish racial and cultural identity.

    What a moron

    They also seem to know little of American history

    I really hope they learn something to. Like what to not let happen to a government and peoples rights.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    That's just it, a multicultural society just causes an increase of crime, that's why there's waaaay more rapes and murders than there was 50-100 years ago. And it also causes cultural suicide as it means all cultures join into one mono-culture. Being British I take great pride in my culture and history and refuse to give it up. Suppression of women and forced marriages are also part of their culture, but unlike our cultures are purposefully genderist.

    These people must be blind if they cannot see the negative effects of multiculturalism.

    I fully support the Danish, the Moslems are treating their country like dirt. When will people see that they are a scourge that have no respect for the countries that they are coming to, and people wonder why Islamophobia exists.

    I'm laughing at the writers of this since most of what they say is actually happening:
    Yes, we all know Muslimes suppress women and force them to marry
    As do we know:
    They have no respect for countries they are entering,
    Ghettoes and crime rates in Sweden are sky-rocketing,
    They cause higher levels of rape and murders,
    They are racist towards the native peoples
    I could go on.
    That's why I'm becoming a bit of an Islamophobe and anti-immigration.
    That's a problem I have with multi-culturalism, it's turned me into a racist.

    The Prez. of the U.S.

    This is an internal Danish issue. Why are you coming to US? It's your problem, solve it.
