The Socialist Mayor in Nørrebro: My Life in a No-Go Zone

This is one of those rare instances when an architect of Multiculturalism has to live with the results of her most cherished policies. The story concerns a socialist politician named Ninna Thomsen, whose gang-infested Copenhagen neighborhood is now off-limits to TV crews.

Socialist mayor shocked: Hit by multicultural reality

By Poul Erik Andersen

On Friday evening, April 5th, the Danish television station TV2 planned to record an interview with the Copenhagen Mayor for health and care, Ninna Thomsen of Socialistisk Folkeparti (Socialist People’s Party).

The interview was to be filmed outside her front door in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen, where she lives, the topic being the effort made by the Municipality of Copenhagen to improve the language and computer skills of the staff caring for the elderly .

TV2: The gangs have banned us from filming in Nørrebro

When TV2 learned her address, new orders were issued. TV2 proposed that she cross the municipal border, traveling half a kilometer away from Nørrebro to the municipality of Frederiksberg, where TV2 still has permission to work.

TV2 explained that they can only enter Nørrebro, specifically from the Copenhagen lakes to the Nørrebro train station, if they hire private guards to protect them from assaults by gang members.

But, the gangs rule my quarter!

The fact that immigrant gangs have the power to decide who walks the streets in the multicultural Nørrebro appears to have shocked the socialist Mayor, who lives in the quarter herself.

In the Danish daily Politiken, on April 12th, she says that until now TV2 has always been able to conduct interviews at her front door.

But after the immigrant gangs prevented the socialist Mayor from showing her correct multicultural mindset by being filmed in front of her Nørrebro home, with a backdrop of veiled women and men in long skirts, she has picked up the pen for real.

In Politiken one can read the conclusion she has come to:

“Different rules apply in Nørrebro than in the rest of Copenhagen and Denmark, and somehow law and order have become the order of the gangs.”

The obviously rattled socialist Mayor continues:

“That the gangs have been permitted to ban journalists and photographers from working in the area is another powerful alarm signal. To me, this is about the gangs creating a blackout of our area and keeping the public from knowing about the conditions in Nørrebro and the shady gang activities.”

Beating the Danish People’s Party to the punch

Experiencing the not-so-decorative multicultural reality at street level has made the socialist mayor of Copenhagen beat the Danish People’s Party at criticizing her own government:

“Thus, it is the entirely wrong time to send 200 police officers from Copenhagen to Jutland, as the government is planning to do. The police need to counter force with force; easing the pressure is an entirely wrong signal to send at this time,” she writes, and continues:

“It is time to change the game. For there is a battle of hearts and minds going on in Nørrebro at the moment. The gangs as well as [hard Salafists] Hizb ut-Tahrir are recruiting among the youth. And in spite of major police efforts and a stack of social initiatives, the gangs have never been more powerful, more visible or had greater appeal for the youth.”

But then, back to the usual socialist dream world

But after this indiscretion of more police and countering force with force, the socialist mayor Ninna Thomsen rushes back to the traditional dream world of the Socialist People’s Party, closing her comment with a call for all forces of good, such as sport clubs, volunteers and municipal employees to mobilize for the battle against the gangs.

On a similar theme, environment and culture are to be applied to drive the gangs out of Nørrebro, according to the socialist mayor, in her reaction to not being able to give an interview to TV2 at her multicultural front door in Nørrebro.

This is to take place by:

“Creating light and green yards, squares and passages, by creating life and activity, and by opening the quarter to other citizens of Copenhagen by actively attracting culture, entrepreneurs and creative businesses,” argues the Copenhagen Mayor Ninna Thomsen, of the Socialist People’s Party.

But what about Sweden?

While Kamel Qureshi, also of the Socialist People’s Party, was a member of the Danish parliament, he was the spokesman for human rights, and thus represented the party line towards the multicultural society. Back then, he highlighted Sweden as the ideal multicultural society.

On the party’s homepage, he posted an article on April 9th 2008 containing the following statement:

“My dreams of a multicultural Denmark may seem unreal, but one does not have to travel far in order to find examples of genuine multicultural reality. It suffices to cross the Øresund, paying a visit to neighboring Sweden.”

And it is precisely the multicultural reality dominating on the Swedish side of the waters that the Socialist People’s Party mayor Ninna Thomsen is now experiencing in Nørrebro, Copenhagen.

  1. While they worship the god of multiculti, they will never solve the problem. They can’t seem to grasp the concept of multiracial but mono cultural. I guess it is driven by leftist mental illness.

  2. I wrote this some years ago and sent it to my leftie sons who have been hopelessly
    brainwashed by their Marxist professors. (I sincerely regret having wasted so much
    money…paying for their university miseducation.) I must have hit a nerve as they
    were quite angry with me for some time.

    A liberal dog was trotting down a shady suburban street one day. As he passed a house with a large porch, he noticed
    a cat on the steps going up to that front porch. And the cat noticed the dog…and the cat arched her back and began
    to hiss. The dog did not like that. He thought–being unable to speak–the following: All animals are brothers and sisters.
    They are all equal and should live together in peace and harmony, never to fight. He approached the cat to befriend her.
    However, the cat had different thoughts. She attacked the dog and with her claws, ripped a large gash down the side of the dog’s face, nearly taking out an eye.

    A conservative dog, trotting down the same street, passed that very same cat. He did not entertain any abstract lofty ideas about other
    animals. He had had previous real-life experience with cats and he had not forgotten what he knew of the history of other dogs who had tangled with cats. He went by experience, not by ideas, and got away from the vicinity of that cat as expeditiously as possible…with no damage to himself or the cat.

  3. “This is one of those rare instances when an architect of Multiculturalism has to live with the results of her most cherished policies.”

    Oh yes. What a curious paradox this is.

    Why is it that the architects and promoters and guardians of the multicultural project and philosophy appear so reluctant to live in what they emphasise is the ideal? What is the explanation. Can it possibly be that these self-righteous hypocrites are not really as fond of their creation as they would have us believe?

    What other explanation can there be? Perhaps, after creating heaven on earth, they feel uncomfortable about depriving others of the opportunity to reside chez multiculturalism and so reluctantly they opt for the rural village or the distinctly ‘undiverse’ middle-class suburb, leaving their constituents to ‘free to rejoice in diversity’ – but I doubt it. Let’s face it, if the liberal-left establishment wanted to live amongst its creation it would do, but it tends not to.

    I often what percentage of the liberal left does actually reside within the influence of diversity – whatever it is, my guess is it will be statistically significant.

    • A couple of typos – sorry:

      “…leaving their constituents to ‘free to rejoice in diversity’…” should read – their constituents ‘free to…’,

      and “I often what percentage of the liberal left…” should read, “I often wonder what percentage of the liberal left…”

      Mental note, reread comment before posting.

  4. What is it with these idiot westerners and multiculturalism? Haven’t they ever heard of travel? Why do they insist on bringing this scourge into their own lands?

    • Travel would make a huge difference. In September-October 1990 – a time when the Soviet bloc regimes had just fallen, but the culture, mentality and (most) institutions in both countries naturally persisted – I travelled through East Germany and Czechoslovakia. My girlfriend and I were simply stunned at the difference between West and East Germany and shuddered at what it must have been like when the Stasi ruled the latter only a matter of months earlier. In Prague we had the privilege of staying in the home of an English-speaking professor of metallurgy (we learned at the very end of our stay that he temporarily evicted his elderly mother from her small self-contained apartment in order to make a paltry 20DM per night from us) where we had the little details of everyday life under Communism explained to us by an erudite and, by Soviet-bloc standards, well-travelled man.

      It occurred to me that if in the 70’s and 80’s some foundation had enacted a program of sending university student leaders on visits to Soviet bloc countries, an entirely different cadre of society’s future leaders would have emerged, ie sensible people stripped of illusions about left-wing regimes and imbued with a respect for their own democratic, capitalist societies governed by the rule of law.
      This didn’t happen and so we have had an ignorant Marxist-educated elite in the West inflicting for decades stupid and damaging policies on their countrymen.

      Today it would be prudent to send university student leaders on visits to Muslim countries so that they may experience first-hand life in an Islamic culture. It is the perfect antidote to woolly-headed notions about all cultures being equal, etc, etc. I know only one woman who has spent any time in an Islamic country and not developed a life-long aversion to Muslim culture and she went only to the resort towns of Dahab and Nuweiba on the Egyptian coast of the Gulf of Aqaba (via Israel, not Cairo) at 30 years old with her like-minded husband with the intention of making a film championing the Palestinian cause. She never made it to Gaza or the West Bank, but her defending of Arab-Muslims for a marijuana-smoking, alcohol imbibing, bisexual, feminist is so disconnected from reality as to be surreal. She has convinced herself that women in Saudi Arabia have a better life than female Israeli Arab citizens.

    • In reply to why the Left makes convenient allies with other cultures and brings them in, it’s namely because they want the political power that comes from the votes.

      They see it as a convenient way to supplant the status quo of whatever culture they are inhabiting at the moment. For the US, it is supplanting white men supremacy with gays, lesbians, blacks, jews, and Muslims. They will figure out how to take care of the barbarians after they get rid of their real enemies.

  5. “Creating light and green yards, squares and passages, by creating life and activity, and by opening the quarter to other citizens of Copenhagen by actively attracting culture, entrepreneurs and creative businesses”.

    PATHETIC! And yet, she still has no clue. Actually she does, but it’s better to pretend than to admit that her whole worldview is upside down!

    • Pathetic – true. They lost the argument years ago – hence the increasingly absurd schemes they propose as solutions to the nightmare they’ve made of our world. They lost the support of their constituency so imported an alternative and their philosophy is shot to pieces so they silence dissent.

      They’re on their last legs.

  6. Lefties will always make excuses. They’ll never admit that they’ve made a horrific mistake.
    The hatred for western advances will always blind them.
    I’ve been watching what has been happening in Australian politics lately and have come to several conclusions.
    Progressives, leftists or socialists call them what you will have 5 pillars.
    Greed, envy, spite, stupidity and worst of all willful ignorence.
    Fortunately they’ve overplayed there hand in the Wide Brown Land and are heading to a historic defeat come September 14.
    Let’s hope that the Abbott government wineds back some of the selfdistructive polocies.

  7. This reveals the paradox at the heart of Communitarian thought,diversity and equality cannot co-exist,it wont stop them trying though and the EU social engineering project involving mass immigration(supposedly to solve the pension problem) but has another purpose,that of breaking down nation states and undermining the ‘homogeneity’ of European cultures .
    It is only just getting into gear,in these policy suggestions from 16 European Think Tanks to the Presidency of the EU,the number of 100 million immigrants for Europe is mentioned.
