American living in and leaving Denmark

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by R. Nielsen (Denmark), Feb 8, 2005 at 06:36

I am married to a Dane who got caught up in the new 2002 immigration laws when we moved. It was terrible for us to get through the process (not allowed to work for over 8 mo. while waiting for residency to be granted or even medical coverage) even with a citizen Dane as a spouse. It was a very unfriendly welcome to this country for which we planned to live in.

It is difficult for non-Danes to find work (as was stated in other posts) and have found while Danes in general are good people, they are clueless to the takover of their country from those who do not wish assimilation. I shop in Brabrand, suburb of Aarhus, and sometimes wonder where exactly I am...the Middle East or Denmark. I see muslim women covered by the veil everywhere (or Somali women wearing the burqua..NEVER anything else) and have not seen a muslim woman ever working anywhere.

The Swedes are goners but the Danes (much smaller) are slowly starting to wake up. Elections are today in Denmark and it will be interesting to see if Ventra will keep contol. If the socialists (blood suckers) win, I fear for what Denmark will become. There are already too many changes to teaching Arabic in schools and segregating students. How does that help the younger generations fit into life in DK? But alas, integration is NOT the goal of these population. I have yet to hear any muslim group talk about what is good for the Danish community/life in general...only what is good for the MUSLIM community.

As for us, we're outta here in about 6 months. Back to the US where we know people will fight to maintain their way of life.
