Denmark Government targets low income Muslims with threats of starvation

Qasim Rashid Esq.

The New York Times is reporting an extremely disturbing new policy in Denmark. The Government is forcibly taking children, starting at age 1, from parents to indoctrinate them with nationalism and "Danish values." Apparently fascism and authoritarianism are "Danish values" nowadays. Good thing Islamophobia is a myth and Europe defeated authoritarianism, right?

See the NY Times report below:

COPENHAGEN — When Rokhaia Naassan gives birth in the coming days, she and her baby boy will enter a new category in the eyes of Danish law. Because she lives in a low-income immigrant neighborhood described by the government as a “ghetto,” Rokhaia will be what the Danish newspapers call a “ghetto parent” and he will be a “ghetto child.”

Starting at the age of 1, “ghetto children” must be separated from their families for at least 25 hours a week, not including nap time, for mandatory instruction in “Danish values,” including the traditions of Christmas and Easter, and Danish language. Noncompliance could result in a stoppage of welfare payments. Other Danish citizens are free to choose whether to enroll children in preschool up to the age of six.

Denmark’s government is introducing a new set of laws to regulate life in 25 low-income and heavily Muslim enclaves, saying that if families there do not willingly merge into the country’s mainstream, they should be compelled.
