It’s always been disappointing to me that so many natural blonds struggle futilely with concepts of scale. Most give no indication of grasping that the entire population of Denmark would fit into a pie slice of Lagos. Nordics represent a vanishing and infinitesimal component of the Earth’s population. Yet they incomprehensibly speak of “minorities” as if they were talking about someone else.
The Folketing, Denmark’s unicameral parliament, has passed a resolution stating that Danes should not become minorities in Danish communities, as figures show the migrant and migrant-descended population are now a majority in Brøndby Strand and Odense.
“Parliament notes with concern that today there are areas in Denmark where the number of immigrants from non-Western countries and their descendants is over 50 percent,” the resolution states.
“It is parliament’s opinion that Danes should not be a minority in residential areas in Denmark.”
No one said anything about industrial parks. It’s gratifying though to hear such an atypically adaptive opinion. But stating that one will naturally lead to two questions: the one that is relevant and the one that will be asked.
And the one that will be asked is, exactly how much Hitler is this resolution? Seeking a Danish majority in Denmark must roost in rare company on that scale, one imagines. So are we talking moderate Paul Ryan level nazism? Or full scale Operation Barbarossa PewDiePie? That, and only that, is the question people will ask whose graves will one day be urinated on by other people with names like Igboo.
Those who are more interested in a living posterity than calculating Hitler scores will ask a different question entirely. That being what are you going to do about it, parliament of Denmark? Having an opinion is nice. But Ted Kennedy had opinions also, like “Of course I’m fine to drive, baby” and “our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually…Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset.” But sometimes a guy just turns out to be wrong. What can you do?
What can you do, indeed. That’s the real question. Because if opinions actually prevented foreign colonists from crawling under the door, depleting the public fisc, and sagging Europe’s otherwise sterile maternity wards under a dense clutch of offspring then it would have ceased long ago. But unfortunately opinions in Western countries bear little weight, particularly when carried by a majority of their founding stock.
Which leaves the Danish government in quite an awkward position. It can’t be comfortable for a modern Western state to have talked itself into taking the side of its own people. But if their resolution is to be anything but an epitaph it will require both a prompt end to non-western immigration along with a virile program of repatriation. One or the other won’t be sufficient for purposes of opinion actualization.
The opium dream of Babel is coming to its grim awakening. And if actions follow opinions in Copenhagen, then liberals will be left to seethe at a Denmark that is literally Danish.
