When I was in Copenhagen in April, the weather was unusually fine and warm, and downtown Copenhagen came alive in the evenings with a foretaste of summer nightlife. Kepiblanc, our Danish correspondent and frequent commenter here at Gates of Vienna, offered to give me an after-dark tour, so we took a stroll through the narrow streets of the old city.
From time to time he pointed out groups of young Muslim men who were heading for the nightclubs. They were dressed fashionably, and appeared to be mainly Turks and South Asians. According to Kepiblanc they frequent the bars and discotheques in search of something hard to find in their own cultural milieu: available young women.
Yesterday Kepiblanc sent me an email with more information on this topic:
As you probably remember from our joint evening walks in downtown Copenhagen, one can always spot a “dance hall” — or discotheque — by the crowd of Middle Eastern types hanging around outside, arguing with a doorman while harassing female bypassers.
Of course, the Danish equivalent of CAIR, several Danish factions of the “do-good-industry”, and useful-idiot politicians accuse the doormen of “racism”, bigotry, and discrimination. Accordingly the “cultural enrichers” have started to sue doormen and bar owners — and with success in some cases.
Now, what can a bar owner or a doorman do to protect his business, his customers and earn a little money? If he lets the “youths” inside one thing is a given: trouble. His business is founded on selling liquor, wine, and beer. But Muslims don’t buy anything. Instead they “engage” the Danish girls (Muslim girls are not allowed outside their homes) in a rather un-Danish way. The girls mostly refuse to dance with them, but since Muslims can’t fathom that, the girls need protection from Danish boys. Then the fighting starts. Suddenly fists and knives appear, and the evening is ruined. As is the discotheque.
So, for the bar owner and the doorman it’s a lose-lose situation.
Below is Kepiblanc’s translation of a story from yesterday evening on Danish TV2:
Discotheque: Muslims make trouble
[Photo text: “Sorry fellas, I can’t let you in.”]
The overwhelming majority of problems in the discotheques can be related to young, Muslim immigrants. So says one of the owners of Australian Bar in Copenhagen, Tommy Petersen, who has appeared several times in media stories for rejecting immigrants. Tommy Petersen underscores that it has nothing to do with racism and discrimination:
“They are mostly unable to behave themselves because they don’t know, or will not respect, the norms and mores of the local nightlife,” he says.
In June the discotheque rejected a young Danish-Turk due to his haircut, a so-called “army cut”, with reference to the dress code of the place. Likewise the discotheque in February rejected three foreigners. The doorman in question later had to pay a fine of DKR 1,000 [$180].
Kepiblanc adds this editorial afterword:
– – – – – – – – – –
But where there’s a will, there’s a way. Several ways, actually.
Some discotheques made an agreement with the cops: They maintain a photo gallery of the “usual suspects” which makes it legal to reject matching faces. Others have established themselves as members-only, but the Muslims somehow figured that one out, so now they’re whining and seething about “racism” once more.
Fortunately, man’s best friend came into the play: by claiming an anti-drug policy some discotheques now place a “sniffer-dog” at the door. Poodles, bulldogs — whatever. It doesn’t matter: Muslims are afraid of being touched by dogs, so they leave the place without further ado.
While the Danes just pat the tail-wagging doggie on the head and walk right in.
I guess it’ll be a while until the Muslims’ lawyers figure out how to handle that one in court, but if they do, I have a suggestion:
Refurbish all the discotheques. Use swine-leather upholstery on all furniture, bars and doorknobs.
Keep the room clean.
