I can become rich.... if I win the lotto.
I can become poor....if I don't take care of my finances.
I can become thinner..... if I stop drinking soda and start exercising.
I can become nicer......just by having that first cup of coffee in the morning.
and I can become trilingual..... if I start practicing my Spanish again.
But there is NO AMOUNT of:
or perfecting of the phrase "rød grød med flød"
that will ever help me to BECOME DANISH.
Pretty sure that the only way that is PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE is if I DIE and am REBORN within the borders of Denmark.
Now why on earth would I concern myself with trying to "become Danish" ??
Because yesterday Denmark named a new Immigration Minister and if I say that the Dansk Folkeparti is PRAISING his appointment, does that tell you anything about his beliefs?
Here is a bit about what Mr. Søren Pind thinks about immigration (på dansk)....
And here is the same story (på engelsk)...
Regardless of what language is used to tell the story, the result is the same...One of the MOST HORRIFIC EXAMPLES of XENOPHOBIA and downright PREJUDICE that I have heard coming from one person's mouth .... and that says a LOT considering I live in the same country as Pia K...
I think I celebrated Birthe's move to retirement a bit prematurely..
