Norway, like other Western countries, frowns upon citizens who want to take care of their own.
Over the last several years an asylum crisis has building in the country. Unprecedented numbers of asylum seekers are arriving in Norway and must be fed, clothed, and housed at state expense. Localities are overwhelmed with the expense and logistics of accommodating the new arrivals, and many native Norwegians are uneasy with what’s going on.
Needless to say, any opposition to official Multicultural policy is unacceptable, and any expression of sentiment on behalf of Norwegian culture and traditions is considered a manifestation of “racism”.
Here’s the latest on the asylum crisis, as reported by to Aftenposten:
Asylum Center Hit by Threats
Another asylum center near Oslo was the target of vandalism and threats of a racist nature over the weekend. Meanwhile, a pastor from Sierra Leone who was involved in another allegedly racist incident feels his case has been resolved.
Debate has been raging in Norway after a series of recent incidents viewed as both anti-foreign and racist. The latest in suburban Bærum left state officials disturbed.
Police were summoned to the new asylum center at Dønski in Bærum, set to open next Friday. Its exterior walls had been smeared with threats against both officials of the immigration agency UDI and prospective residents of the center.
The threats implied an acute fear of foreigners (called fremmed frykt in Norwegian), and included sayings like “Keep Norway pure” and “UDI pigs, be careful.”

Police had no suspects. They believe the vandalism was carried out Saturday night.
One of the threats made a direct reference to a recent sniper attack on an asylum center in Asker. “The next shots will land here,” read another tag on the building.
Pastor fought prejudice
Meanwhile, in another racist incident earlier this month, a pastor from Sierra Leone has won official apologies after he was prevented from carrying out his duties at funerals in the mountain community of Oppdal.
“I’m sorry that (Pastor Joseph) Moiba has experienced rejection and felt unwanted,” said Bishop Knut Andresen. “There is to be zero tolerance for racism in Norwegian society and in the church.”
Kirsten Almås, the senior pastor who had gone along with parishioners’ requests that Moiba not conduct funeral services for family members, also indicated she regrets replacing Moiba with another pastor. “The warning lamps should have blinked and the motives for the request (that he be replaced because of his skin color) should have been examined,” Almås wrote in a statement.
Moiba met both Andresen and Almås last week and said he felt his complaints have been taken seriously. “I won’t be replaced (again) by another pastor if the motive is skin colour,” he said.
There is to be zero tolerance for racism in Norwegian society…
In other words, the natural, normal, and God-given tendency of Norwegians to prefer people like themselves is ruled off the turf. It’s considered illegitimate, unacceptable, and evil.
Norwegians have been traduced by their political and religious leaders, and they are not alone: the same thing is happening all over the Western world.
We are no longer allowed to have places that we can call our own, inhabited by people like ourselves. Every other imaginable ethnic group in the world is granted that privilege, but not white Europeans.
We’re expected to know our place — only there isn’t one.
