Meanwhile, Back in Denmark

Meanwhile, back in Denmark. Ah, yes, glorious Denmark, a nation that counts among the happiest in the world. The country cannot defend itself, but little matter that. It sits happily under the American military umbrella.

And yet, all is not well in Denmark. You see, military conquest is not the only way to occupy a country and to transform its culture. There are, dare we say, more peaceful means. Among them, mass migration by people who refuse to assimilate into the local culture.

Judith Bergman reports on what is happening in Denmark today. One understands that the problems were not caused by President Trump. And one also understands that the weak sisters of Western Europe, led by France and Germany and Great Britain and Sweden… have happily welcomed millions of Muslim migrants… people who have undertaken to change local cultures. Given that the weak sisters are nothing if not weak, they are mostly letting it happen.

Bergman writes:

Earlier this year, in his New Year's speech, Denmark's prime minister at the time, Lars L√łkke Rasmussen, mentioned that religious parallel societies constitute a problem and that immigrants need to learn to "put secular laws over religious ones".

What, however, if, in the community involved, there seems no desire to do that?

"When I was in high school", Rasmussen continued "there were around 50,000 people with a non-Western background in Denmark. Today, there are almost half a million. In one generation, our country has changed".

Would that Donald Trump were Denmark's largest problem.

The new migrants, most of whom have settled in Copenhagen, prefer Islamic law to Danish law:

Just how great are the problems was revealed in a recent survey, Integrations Barometer 2018, published by the municipality of Copenhagen. The Integration Barometer -- which measures the degree of integration in the municipality among young people with a non-Western background -- showed that almost one third of 18-29 year-olds (31%) believe that "religious and cultural laws must be adhered to, even though they may be contrary to [Danish] law".[1] The issue, then, is whether these young people believe that Islamic sharia law should take precedence over Danish law. The statistic represents an increase from 2016, when a similar survey showed that 24% wanted sharia law. In addition, the number of youths who view democracy in a positive light has fallen from 86% in 2016 to 79% in 2018[2].

As for who is promoting sharia law, we look first to the mosques. As it happens, Danish authorities have approved mosques that are being directed from Iran, of all places:

The Imam Ali Mosque, which opened in 2015 and is the largest in Denmark – it was built with 2 minarets 32 meters tall and with room for 1,500 people, at a cost of 80 million Danish kroner ($1,800,000; 1,600,000 euros) -- has been at the center of the debate. The Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten recently revealedthat, when, in 2002 the association behind the mosque, Ahlul Bait, asked to be approved as a religious community, it had in its statutes a provision saying it operated under the supervision of Iran's 'Supreme Leader', Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. At first, this news was a matter of concern for the Ministry of Church Affairs, but then Ahlul Bait simply rewrote its statutes and the ministry gave its approval.

The Danes are on the case however. They passed a law declaring that imams would not be allowed to preach in favor of rape. How is that one working out?

In 2016, Denmark introduced various initiatives against religious preachers who sought to "undermine Danish laws and values and who support parallel legal systems". One of those initiatives criminalized speech in Danish mosques that condones violence and rape. "This," said the Minister of Church and Culture, Bertel Haarder, at the time, "will have an impact on what people put up with from their religious leaders."

What Haarder apparently failed to consider was that "people" might not disagree with their "religious leaders" and would therefore be happy to "put up" with sermons and teachings that in fact actually do go against Danish laws and values.

The Danes, in a spasm of idealistic fervor, imagined that they needed but to pass a new law… and that imams would cease preaching for violence. They did not figure out that those who attend such mosques are fully on board with marital rape... and prefer sharia law to Danish law.

Anyway, the invasion into Denmark is proceeding apace. And the Danes do not know how to deal with it. Their culture will almost certainly be defeated in the end.

Bergman notes this salient fact:

In 2006, there were 115 mosques in all of Denmark. By the end of 2017, that number had increased to approximately 170 mosques in total -- an increase of nearly 50% in little more than a decade. It is unclear, how many of those mosques have been formally approved by the Ministry of Church Affairs.

As if Donald Trump is Denmark’s biggest problem.

When I was in high school in the 80s the country was 90% White and now I'm about to be a minority, already am if you ignore the whites that hate themselves, and genocide is definitely on the table. The kind of anti-white rhetoric you here always precedes a genocide though it doesn't guarantee it's going to happen

The article didn't mention that Iranian sharia law allows marriage for girls as young as 13. The charitable nonprofit that advocates for this, affiliated with the Iranian Ahlul Bait organization, is called Jhail Bait.

The Danes though the Nazis were bad. They don't have the military manpower, let alone the will, to do anything about this. The US military will not come to rescue the Danes.
The Danes should get while the getting's good, but the pursuers will be coming after them.
