Pigeon Languages

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: stop complaining

Scandinavians (Danes, Swedes, and Norwegians) use their language as a means of disenfranchising foreigners. As an American living in Scandinavia during the 1970s, I went through exactly the same discrimination, segregation, and alienation as many of you immigrants are conveying today. I am not a Muslim, but am a Catholic. I had many anti-Catholic insults hurled at me by Scandinavians. This did/does not surprise me because these are a people, for the most part, who are irreligious. They are the LAST nations of Europe to Christianize; they have no faith and no respect for others who have one.

I ask Scandinavians why they even bother to learn English. So many snub English. They use their languages to restrict upward mobility for immigrants and foreigners. Frankly, in my opinion, these are the most ugly-sounding languages in all of Europe. They do NOT sound like German: they sound like pigeons when they speak. Learning their language--and I lop all of them together as "pigeon talk"--is a total waste of your precious time and resources. Unlike German, where every letter is pronounced, Scandinavian languages are tonal and do not pronounce one or more letters spelt in a word, making it very difficult to learn. I do think that they do this on purpose so as to alienate the foreigners from themselves. These are NOTHING languages: their significance in the world of communication and the Internet is NOTHING. Let them keep believing in their "superiority." Their governments wanted you folks there because the raw truth is that they would appear to be like Nazi nations if they weren't to at least APPEAR to be multicultural. It's all to serve THEIR agenda, not yours. Scandinavians suffer from what I call the "uber alles syndrome," just like their Nazi predecessors.
