Germans are being encouraged to boycott Denmark.
You may wonder how on earth one country boycotts another, but I bet you that folks who own beach houses up and down the west coast can tell you.
And I bet that folks who work for vacation rental companies in DK can tell you.
And I bet that the man who owns the hotel in Hvide Sande can tell you.
Because THESE are the folks that are going to feel the BRUNT of the new border controls.
These scenarios have been played out for decades. We create laws to keep the BAD PEOPLE (this time, it's those from certain countries who are coming into DK purely with the motivation to commit a variety of crimes) from doing the BAD THINGS and end up hurting the GOOD PEOPLE we were supposedly protecting in the first place. Why is that??
Because BAD PEOPLE will always find a way around our new rules.
They always do.
I would love to be a fly on the wall of some of these customs checks at the Kruså border.... just to hear the conversation going on between the driver and the customs agent. I imagine this scene is a typical one; the agent, exasperated at having to try and explain what he is doing for the umpteenth time, finally just raises his arm and points (as this man is) toward the east... toward Christiansborg.....and begs the driver to understand that he is JUST DOING HIS JOB.
