Colonos recently brought tidings from a little country in Scandinavia called Denmark, which is undergoing a cultural revolution orchestrated by a neo-liberal government in cahoots with the far right in a political climate that thus provide fertile grounds for extremism, such as racism and various fascist tendencies.
The Saga continues: what happened last night in the little Duck Pond is no surprise, really, and all the more sad for it. An anti-racist organiser was viciously attacked by the far-right extremists whose mushrooming is encouraged by a warmongering, anti-social state of affairs.
This is what “democracy” in Denmark looks like:
Then, and here comes the punch line, if you allow a little word play, the Danish equivalent-ish of the English Guardian, a filthy rag called Politiken writes:
“De gik efter ham, og de fik ham. Godt og grundigt.
Afstraffelsen var kontant, da en flok voldsmænd natten til lørdag overfaldt den 28-årige Peter Hegner Bonfils, talsmand for Antiracistisk Netværk i Århus.”
Which roughly translates to:
“They went for him, and they got him. Good and thoroughly.
The punishment was “cold cash” when a violent gang Friday night assaulted the 28-year old Peter Hegner Bonfils, spokesperson for Anti-racist Network Aarhus””
So, they “went for him” and they “got him” – and “good/well and thoroughly” at that. He was “punished” – for what exactly was he punished? Oh, yea, he was of course an anti-racist, the freak. The glorification of violence and at once condemnation (he was punished) of the other is complete – and you need read no further: the racist cultural tendency is good and thoroughly preserved and perpetuated. All is well in the little Duck Pond, the outsider, the different one, got what he deserved.
