DF says no to more Danish Muslims

Dansk Folkeparti (DF) will vote against the bi-annual citizenship law that will grant Danish citizenship to around 1,600 individuals later this week because the list contains the names of too many Muslim immigrants.

Only parliament can confer citizenship through law, which is done twice a year, but DF does not want to confer citizenship to the the 422 Iraqis and Afghanis who have otherwise fulfilled all the necessary requirements.

DF argues that Denmark risks being taken over by Muslims and that the soon-to-be Danes ought to instead go home and build up their respective countries.

Roundly condemned
The decision has been widely criticised, even by fellow right-wing parties Liberal Alliance and lead opposition party Venstre.

“I don’t think that we can differentiate between people simply because they come from a country where the majority of citizens are Muslims,” Venstre spokesperson Jan Jørgensen told Politiken.

Liberal Alliance also condemned the move, while Johanne Schmidt Nielsen from the far-left party Enhedslisten said it was “pure discrimination”.

DF: Too many Muslims
DF’s Christian Langballe says his party wants to end all immigration from Islamic and non-Western countries.

“We think that too many people from Islamic countries and the Muslim world immigrate to Denmark and are given citizenship, so it’s up to other people to argue their case,” Langballe told Politiken.

Earlier this year, Dansk Folkeparti was sued after the party ran an advert with the names of around 700 new citizens with the warning that one might be a terrorist.

  • Perhaps not allowing Muslims immigration is better than allowing them and then limiting their religious rights.

    Langballe literally translates to “Long balls”. It’s offensive, barbaric, uncivilised. Danes should look at deporting him.

    Huh? When did Denmark have any colonies in the Muslim world?

    Europe is really in a crisis.

    these same danes murdered millions in malaysia indonesia and africa early in the 20th century….they should consider granting citizenship to muslims a form of reparations for their holocausts committed

  • sasboy

    I have no problem with Muslim immigrants being banned from taking Danish citizenship as long as ethnic Danes settled in other countries move back to Denmark.

    What goes for the goose must go for the gander.

    “.. and that the soon-to-be Danes ought to instead go home and build up their respective countries.”
    That’s a little hard to do when Western powers keep droning, attacking and otherwise oppressing you when you’re in your own country; either by sending in their own troops or through the brutal puppet regimes they have successfully managed to install.

    The most important founder and leader until recently is Pia Kjærsgaard. Her mentor was Mogens Glistrup. The current leader is Kristian Thulesen Dahl. The leader of their youth organisation (who in their drunken rage some years ago, had a competition of drawing Muhammad (saaws) in a most insulting way) is Anders Primdahl Vistisen. Their second in command is Søren Espersen. The party is known for attracting a lot of Nazis and the like. Although their try to have a better looking image by expelling their worst extremists when they say something public.

    No surprise coming from a party whose founder, was a fan of apartheid, and in her infinite arrogance and racism, still to this day calls Mandela a terrorist. Not to mention that her mentor, was the godfather of danish islamophobia, who wanted to throw all Muslim men in concentration camp and force Muslim women to be prostitutes for the white-man. And while he was alive and spouted his Nazi like talk, the danish population could not care less. After all he was talking about them Mohammedans and not Jews.
