I Married a Dane

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by Kurt Schumacher (United States), Aug 13, 2003 at 17:53

Elisabeth Arnold and Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen should have known better than to question the facts in an article written by Daniel Pipes. They should also know better than to import a population that has no wish to assimilate.

I married a Dane. I love Denmark and could see myself living there for a time. Danes are a friendly, fair, and extremely tolerant people. Their fairness extends to immigration. I am an American of the non-Muslim variety, and as such I am subject to the same toughened up Danish laws regarding marriage and residency as any Muslim immigrant from a third-world swamp. I do not blame them at all.

I know that immigration is potentially harmful when the immigrants bring a dysfunctional culture with them. This happens with more with Muslim immigration than any other kind...
