The problem of immigration is fundamentally about the ethnic status of Denmark. Is Denmark supposed to be multiethnic or not? I can see no advantages at all in a multiethnic society.
If one takes a look around the world, one will find a vast number of places, where different ethnic and cultural groups live within the same state. This seems more often to lead to violent conflicts in these societies than to "enrichment" the way our politicians normally maintain in the mass media.
Cyprus is a good example of this matter. Here the Greeks and the Turks had so much difficulty in living together within the same state, that this state was crushed in 1974. On this background I would very much like to ask our politicians: "When the Greeks (and furthermore the Kurds and the Armenians) are not able to live in peace with the Turks, what reason is there then to believe that the Danes in the long run will be able to do so?"
Only the national solidarity is able to create the coherence which is the very foundation for our democracy. The immigration from Africa and Asia with the following unnatural biological mixing of fundamentally different peoples will dilute this coherence. History is not able to show just one example that something good can result from miscegenation. On the other hand there are plenty of examples that prove the contrary.
One just has to take a look on the political, social and economical conditions in the Latin-American countries where the people is one big mixture of Europeans, Red Indians and sometimes also Africans. Political repression, chaos, poverty and bad social conditions are prevailing here and this could very well become that way in a future Denmark, if the immigration from Asia and Africa isn't checked and the immigrants from there already settled in Denmark sent back. To me the future of my country and the true interests of the Danish people are far more important than absurd and self-destructive internationalism or "globalism".
I do not base my outlook on the meaning of the ethnic differences on neither the German chauvinism of nazism nor the right of one race to rule other races such as in racism (supremacy). No my foundation is on the other hand the experience of history, common sense, logic and the eternal laws of nature.
Benjamin Disraeli who was prime minister in England in 1872-80 and of Jewish heritage wrote the following in his book Endymion p. 249-250:
"No one must lightly dismiss the question of race. It is the key to world history, and it is precisely for this reason that written history often lacks clarity - it is written by people who do not understand the race question and what belongs to it. Language and religion do not make a race - there is only one thing which makes a race, and that is blood"
The anti-racist allegation of an inborn and natural racial equality is nothing but a political doctrine based on wishful thinking, When it come to the question of race it is often forgotten that the truth about the racial differences for most people is so compelling obvious that the burden of proof must lie with those that proclaim racial equality - and not the other way round.
The first law of nature is self-preservation. This natural law does also apply for nations and ethnic groups.
The German philosopher Arthur Shopenhauer once wrote on how the undesired truth is received: "Firstly it is ridiculed, secondly it is fought violently for at last to be accepted as self-evident."
You shall understand the truth, and the truth shall set you free (John 8.32)
Only truth triumphs (Upanisad)
