The chapters Shakespeare forgot

November 12, 2010

Dansk Folkeparti, abbreviated DF, or The Danish People’s Party, is proud to spear head European immigration politics. Setting the bar, as high as decency will allow, they have designed an obstacle course for want-to-be Danes consisting of desirable and minimal conditions of the aspirant.

Here is the argument. If you want to be a Dane you must look like one, talk like one and behave like one. To DF Denmark is for the Danes. For every desirable quality, and quantity, you get a point and with sufficient points you are ready to melt in; to add and not subtract from a much loved culture. Integration is key. Ask not what Denmark can do for you but what you can do for Denmark. One united nation. “Denmark back to the Danes”.

Part of the process is going to be a visual document, a recent film, produced to prepare or deter, the mentally heterogeneous aspirant to Danish citizen ship; meant to impress with images and likeness of the mold of the desirable; of danish ‘joie de vivre‘.

This documentary was recently criticized by DF integration spokesman Peter Skaarup for not revealing the full picture of the Danish soul; it lacked naked breasts, an essential truth about the Danes. Peter Skaarup wants the hopeful aspirant to face the local reality; to try his-her acceptance, religious and psychological, with a reality check, with the exposed features of a mother and the stuff many erotic dreams are made of.

Naser Khader a well integrated member of the Danish society, integration spokesman and a political spokesman for the Conservative People’s party (Konservativt Folkeparti – K), humorously suggests that projecting naked pigs before a potential religious fundamentalist might be more effective than showing them half naked Danish women.

The following image might just serve the purpose; a wonderfully syncretic image of the Danish Zeitgeist; of Danish breasts and bacon.

I know, the head dress would have to go.

  1. What is it exactly social conservatives think they’re conserving? No one can define what a Dane is. . . .First we draw arbitrary lines on the groud to separate us, then we categorize ourselves according to physical features. Just like animals i guess, animals with tanks and bombs.
