Some well-meaning Danish citizens were appalled by certain opinions expressed by the leaders of Dansk Folkeparti (Danish People’s Party). They took their complaints to the Danish legal system, which refused to give them satisfaction.
Now they’re going over its head, and appealing directly to the United Nations. Our Danish correspondent Kepiblanc has kindly translated a brief article from last Sunday’s Berlingske Tidende. He included his commentary on the whole affair:
This is just another example of wasting the taxpayers’ money. Our tiny country undoubtedly holds the world record for superfluous “centers” for this and that and the other. On the other hand it probably solves innumerable problems, such as traffic casualties, work accidents, and overcrowded asylums for incompetent academics by containing them safely inside the thick walls of their institutions where they can cause only limited harm, such as this.
In short: they’re nothing but laughingstock to all Danes. Nobody cares, and if the UN takes this seriously nobody cares either. Another New Year’s joke.
And now for his translation:
Indictment for racism sent to UN
Can one compare Muslims with Nazis and head scarves with swastikas? The UN will consider if MPs from DPP (Danish People’s Party) went too far
– – – – – – – – –
The UN will have to decide if several prominent members of the Danish People’s Party, including chairwoman Pia Kjaersgaard, went too far when they compared Muslims with Nazis and head scarves with swastikas.
First thing into the new year the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva will receive an indictment. Sender: Danish Center for Documentation and Advisory Board on Racial discrimination (DRC).
The indictment is due to the fact that Denmark’s State Prosecutor rejected the DRC’s complaint about Pia Kjaersgaard, MEP Mogens Camre and two MPs, Søren Krarup and Morten Messerschmidt.
“The State Attorney is cheating by refusing to take our complaint into consideration,” says Center Chief Niels-Erik Hansen.
