Danish politics in the year of 2013 will probably continue on the track laid down after the change of government in September 2011. If I had the luxury of stating that Denmark is the tiny country quietly enjoying itself while the world burns, we could possibly hope that this would pass, once the greater powers have talked matters over. While it may be an exaggeration to say that Europe burns, it certainly smolders in an ominous way.
This smoldering, in particular in several of our neighboring countries but here as well, seems to go unnoticed by our politicians. They do not seem to have realized at all that in large parts of Northern, Western and Southern Europe, some extremely difficult years lie ahead. During these years it will be decided if there will still be a whole Europe, largely inhabited by ethnic Europeans, or if Europe will shrink to consist of the countries that were shielded behind the long-gone Iron Curtain from the mass immigration that began after World War II.
In France, poverty will rise explosively in these years. The combination of a hopeless labor market system and massive immigration, predominantly Muslim, will bring France to its knees economically, or at the very least create tensions so serious that it is unknown how they can be dealt with. Anti-white racism is widespread and seems only to increase.
Londoners can now call themselves a majority minority. More than half the inhabitants of the third largest city in Europe (after Moscow and Paris) are now non-ethnic British, descendants of the original English, Scots, Welsh and Irish. Through the years, a dual-effect process has been ongoing. Non-Western immigrants are rushing in, while the original inhabitants increasingly resort to white flight and leave the area, either to emigrate themselves or to move to the countryside. Between 2001 and 2011 the share of ethnic white Brits in London fell by more than 600,000 persons.
At the same time, British multiculturalism is slowly becoming totalitarian. Dissent is tolerated to an ever lower degree, as shown by a series of recent events, such as a school girl of 14 who was detained by the police for several hours because she refused to participate in a work group where she was the only English speaking pupil, and Tommy Robinson, who at the time of writing is jailed for having used a passport not his own. The cultural clashes in cities like Bradford, Leicester, Birmingham and Luton are telling their tale: Of a country and a society being fragmented in all directions.
I have had the mixed pleasure several times of visiting Brussels, the capital of the European Union. A strange city. Good food and one of the most beautiful town squares of Europe, Grote Markt or Grand Place. On top of that hundreds of thousands of European Union employees. And then the ethnic-religious reality. Walk 500 meters away from Grote Markt, and you might as well be in Morocco or the Congo. Everything has changed. Only the architecture remains witness to the fact that, formally, I am in Europe.
I do not need to mention ‘Sweden’ to the readers of this newspaper.
Back to the shadow boxing. The domestic political discipline in Christiansborg, the Danish parliament. Here one pretends – well, probably actually believes – that the tiny country can continue quietly enjoying itself. Even erratic comments about the development in Europe are heard, where the development, as understood from Christiansborg, is headed towards ever increasing harmony. The crisis of the euro is seen as merely ripples on a surface soon to be blank as a mirror. The Arab Spring may have been put on hold for a while, but that must certainly be only temporary. The entire happy planet basically desires to live like us. They may not quite be aware of it themselves, but the light of understanding will dawn on them. Possibly not today, but at the latest in a couple of days’ time.
It would be a new thing if our political elite were to react as if there is actual trouble at the mill, that such trouble has not in fact been abolished for eternity. Hardly ever has there been such a distance between reality and the desire for reality. More is surely to follow in this unsustainable series.
