Iceland Should Do More To Fight Racism, Says (PC) EU Report
grapevine.is ^ | feb. 2012

Posted on 02/21/2012 11:47:54 AM PST by VU4G10

A new report from the Council of Europe’s Anti-Racism Commission (ECRI) says that Iceland should be doing more to combat discrimination, in part by granting permission for Muslims to build a mosque and by filling in gaps in current immigration legislation.

Iceland should resist giving into multicultural nonsense.

Iceland should tell the Euroweenies to bugger off and look to their own problems instead of trying to inflict those same problems on Iceland.

Well, racism very well could be a serious problem in Iceland.

I’ve heard that the blond-haired, blue-eyed Icelanders are being discriminated against by the blonder-haired, bluer-eyed Icelanders who are, in turn, being picked on by the blondest-haired, bluest-eyed Icelanders.

...also, from what I understand, it’s VERY difficult to find employment unless your last name contains a ‘j’, an ‘o’, a ‘u’ AND an umlaut...

Well, obviously, if they’re “white”, they’re “racist”.

“Council of Europe’s Anti-Racism Commission (ECRI)”

Who funds this group and why are they supposed to matter?
And while we’re at it, why are all these fools, here and abroad, genuflecting before the altar of “racism”?

Once they make the VERY FIRST concession, it’s all over. It sends a signal for a trickle and later then a deulge of demands for accomodation.

Then they just tell you to die.

Buck up and just scream no NOW —MUCH less trouble, later.

Or just politely claim you’re all racists, and be done with it forever —sort of like a vaccine.

Iceland should just give them the finger. They did not beg for a bailout when they went bankrupt. They accepted the consequences and the worst is over now. Hope they don’t get involved in the Euroweenie nightmare.

Iceland needs to tell the “Europe’s Anti-Racism Commission” to pound sand.

Misery loves company...Europe is inundated with Muslims so I guess they think everyone else should be too.

Iceland should do what every Iceland wants to do.

Yes, but someday when Ramadan falls during the month of the Midnight Sun they'll all starve to death.

I spent a year in Iceland. We had a strict curfew. Singles could not be downtown after midnight unless they had a pass. Married folks could only be out if they were with their mates.

I had a friend spend one year without being allowed off base. This applied to all minorities at the time. The reason was since Iceland had such a small population they were trying to kept their race and heritage intact.

The Brits left a lot of babies there after WW2. I think they have relaxed the curfew restrictions now.

Hmm.... what you say about your time there with the Air Force curfew makes South Korea look like an open society!

From what little I know about Iceland, it now has a huge tourism trade and nightclub scene focusing on European vacationers. I know several American college students who went there and believed it was a colder version of a Florida spring break scene, with hot springs for swimming rather than beaches and oceans. I have no idea what the country looks like in actual life outside the tourist areas, but what you describe is nothing like the way they operate today.

I guess they just don’t want to be like mother Denmark. If my neighbors demanded that I take in boarders in my house of a different race or religion or what ever why would I be obligated to do so? Would they help me pay my mortgage? I think Saudi Arabia should allow Christians to migrate there and build a cathedral. Isn’t that the same thing? Isn’t Saudi Arabia racist too?

This is lunacy. The one-worlders gone full tilt into the self-destruction of the world's peoples.

What is wrong with any people wanting to preserve their own cultural heritage in the land of their fathers? The answer is absolutely nothing. On the other hand there is a full ocean of negative consequences for deliberately sabotaging your own heritage. (And check out: Pursuit Of "Diversity," Return To Babel?.)

The effort of educated but confused people seeking to immerse all mankind into some form of secular world order, must be resisted; just as we have resisted other forms of tyranny through the years.

Just as every child in every class room, differs--save in the case of identical twins--so every people, folk, tribe or nation, differ. The altruistic course is to respect what is unique in each, not try to drown all in some bastardized anti-culture.

I doubt you'll see the last name 'Mohammadson' or 'Mohammaddottir' in the icelandic phone book. If Iceland ever lay down for those people it is all over.

Iceland say NO to TERRORISM!!!

You know, I really, look forward to the day when normal people the world over - that is, NOT liberal/socialist lunatics morons - just stand up and start cleaning house on these insane asswipes.

Seriously. Just clean their clocks, once and for all and put an end to this crap.

It’s been going on for too many decades now, and it’s time to end it.

Karl Marx’s bastard stepchildren are destroying the planet and every society they infest.

Somewhat inaccurate headline - this is the Council of Europe, not the EU. The two are very different. The Council of Europe has far more member countries, of which Iceland is one.

They had the nightclub scene while I was there but I worked night shift so I missed out on that. We had parties on base so the natives came to us.

I was in Korea twice and there was more to do there. The first time only Osan had a curfew but I was there in ‘08 and everyone had the curfew.

Read their playbook. They are after world domination. They will get their asses kicked militarily as the Israelis have proved time and again, but they can win by infiltrating and using a countries laws against it.

Muslims are always trying to escape the hellholes their ideas create... so they can move someplace nice - then push their ideas so the new place becomes a hellhole .... so they can escape... so they can...
