‘Immigrants must celebrate Christmas to be Danish’: DPP

The anti-immigration Danish People’s Party is demanding that immigrants celebrate Christian festivals such as Christmas and Easter if they want to call themselves ‘Danish’.

“Going to church,” the party’s immigration spokesman Martin Henriksen added, would at least put new arrivals “on the right track”.

The call came after a week when Denmark’s parliament revisited the vexed question of what it means to be a Dane.

    Immigrants must celebrate Christmas to be Danish…“Going to church,” the party’s immigration spokesman Martin Henriksen added, would at least put new arrivals “on the right track”.

    Wow. I’d settle for “they shouldn’t protest Christmas”. These Danes are all over the map. Perhaps someone should remind them that far-right totalitarian application of The Bible was a contributing factor to pushing the social pendulum to its current left position.

  • You MUST celebrate Christmas if you are an immigrant??!!

    This is why Northern Europeans are such brain-dead idiots — including the Right. This is why the only way they know how to deal with immigrants is either as cultural bigots, or as extremely guilt-ridden bigots over-apologizing for their own culture.

    Is there no such thing as a “happy medium” any more?

    • Heh;)

      Perhaps they have too much fish in their diet.

      • Nope — fish is brain food. Too much Danish pastry — the old “mangia-cake” disorder.

    Oh, the islamists might turn up at church at Christmas all right, but they might be bearing unexpected gifts. There might be three bearded men from the Middle East, but they won’t be wise nor carrying frankincense, myrrh and gold, but possibly carrying Kalashnikovs, bomb vests and distributing lead.

    It’s a silly idea and unlikely to get more voters for this party.

    Let’s face facts: there’s only one truly deeply evil political system that poses as a religion.

    Christianity does have the best music, but others have fine ethical-spiritual beliefs.

  • YES!

    Everyone should be required to celebrate Christmas because Christmas is fun.

    The Danes have the right idea.

    And now, Danish Christmas carols:

    I guess it is anything to avoid protecting your borders and screening those who seek to enter. Still, can anyone imagine the hysteria that would happen should this have taken place in Canada?
