Norwegian Feminist Wants More Muslim Immigration

This one via Human Rights Service.

Gry Larsen, the leader of the Youth Organization of the Norwegian Labor Party, wants a more open immigration policy, with less restrictions on asylum seekers than we have now. She is worried that the Center-Right government is copying too much of the restrictive immigration policies of Denmark. She claims that according to a new EU study, Swedes are less negative towards immigrants than Danes. The Danish line thus fosters xenophobia, while the softer Swedish way leads to integration and tolerance.

The report she is quoting is from the Vienna-based European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC). It has been heavily criticized in Denmark. To give you some measure of how serious this organization is, it should be mentioned that the EUMC suppressed a report on anti-semitism in Europe because the study concluded Muslims and pro-Palestinian groups were behind many of the incidents it examined. For my own part, I would say that Denmark has a lot healthier approach to this than Sweden does. The Danes actually talk about their problems. Sweden is breaking apart while everybody is pretending they live in a happy, multicultural society. Which approach is better in the long run?

I also find it remarkable that an ardent feminist and young woman such as Gry Larsen is blind to the fact that she opens the doors to even more Muslim immigration, while her young countrywomen are increasingly unsafe for rapes by Muslims in their own capital.

"Swedes are less negative towards immigrants than Danes."

Please note that Danmark has a far more open press than Sweden, whose elite and press for some reason censors itself pretty harshly on immigration and crime issues! One can only be against or for something when one knows that it exists and to which extent. ;-)

If anyone wants to see the results of a more open immigration policy and the Swedish results of "integration and tolerance" then do a bit of research on Malmo. You can start with this link:,2933,139614,00.html
