Sunday August 9, a couple was on their way home in the evening after a concert and dinner in central Oslo. They went hand in hand along the road close to where they live in Grønland [Oslo].What then was the response of the gay couple in question?
"Suddenly a man in his 40s came to us, apologized and asked if we speak Norwegian. Then he asked 'what is that?' while pointing to our hands," says Anders (24) to Dagbladet.
The man of foreign origin then explained what he thought of normal Norwegian values.
He said: "I don't like that. This is a Muslim district."
The couple continued quietly down the street, but shortly after the man came after them and kicked one of them hard from behind. Anders' lover took out his mobile to call the police and the attacker quickly disappeared. The Oslo Police says that case was reported and is under investigation.
Oddleif Sveinungsen of the Oslo police district says that they see it very seriously. "The gay Norwegian couple declared they were walking and met a man of about 40. The man first called to them that "this is a Muslim district, we don't tolerate such here."
Did they talk about the humiliation they suffered, how they were entitled to walk down the street holding hands without being attacked just like everyone else, how this attack was part of a worrying trend?
The gay couple, Anders Rasmushaugen and Michael Eimstad, told Dadgbaldet it was important that this won't be turned into a case of Muslims against gays. "This incident is about one person," says Eimstad.Indeed. I wonder, had Norwegian people treated them this way, whether or not it would have been about "one person" or the endemic intolerance and injustice present in Norwegian society?
Whilst conservatives made some soothing noises, of most interest is the attitude of the Socialist Left:
Akhtar Chaudry (SV, Socialist Left) is also shocked.It's sickening, isn't it?
"This is hate crime. We don't tolerate that. We are so strict that that we created a separate act in the criminal code to show that we don't accept this. The police must do a job here. I expect and believe that they will make an effort and get a hold of those involved," says Akhtar Chaudhry (SV), deputy head of the justice committee.
He stresses that Grønland is not a Muslim district.
"This is no Muslim district. It's a multicultural district that in many ways is an Oslo in miniature. Here live black, white and yellow, Muslims and non-Muslims together in a melting pot. But had it been a Muslim district, Norwegian law would still apply here," says Chaudhry, who doesn't think that the attack shows a trend.
"crazy people are everywhere. I have no reason to believe that this is any different. I also spoke with the general secretary of the Islamic Council today. He completely agrees that we don't tolerate this," says Chaudhry.
He can't resist cutting in with his own utopian rubbish about what people on his side of the political fence have wrought on Oslo, once a safe and peaceful city.
Of course, he has to tread a careful line - both gays and Muslims are client groups, statistically, of the socialist Left. If he is seen to support one over the other, one group may take their votes elsewhere.
Indeed, wouldn't it be a shame if the gays were among the first group of natives to wake up to the realities of mass immigration?
It is quite clear that Chaudry's constituents refuse to sing his lullaby, however:
When Muslim Aslam shaid (50) who lives next to Grønlandsleiret (main street) in Oslo sees the picture of the two gay men in Dagbladet he says: "I'm angry when I see the picture of the two holding hands. I don't like it, since it conflicts with our culture."This leads to a logical question; what will happen if Muslims become a majority in the whole of Oslo, or even Norway? That may sound fanciful, but it is a comparatively tiny country in terms of population.
Aslam is originally from Pakistan, but he's lived in Norway for ten years. He thinks Norwegians should adjust to Grønland stop showing publicly that they're gay or lesbian.
"Grønland is a multicultural society where there are many who don't like gays, and that they shouldn't hold hands. Her we go on the street with wives and children, and it's regrettable to see such things. But what they do at home by themselves, I don't care," says Shaid.
He thinks on the contrary that it's OK that gays show their love on Oslo's Western side, where there are few Muslims.
"There they can do what they want. But here in Grønland they should stop. Ideally homosexuality should be banned to practice in public in this area, but it's not up to us to decide that," says the 50 year old.
It is quite clear that many are only happy to live and let live up to a point, if at all.
Fjordman, writing at Gates of Vienna, has some disturbing details on the transformation of Oslo in just a decade or two from a distinctly Scandinavian city to a multicultural dystopia:
Those who have been following the Scandinavian scene know that Malmö in southern Sweden is the worst town or city in this part of Europe when it comes to “diversity.” This is true, but when it comes to capital cities, I suspect that Oslo, Norway, is currently the worst among the Nordic countries, several orders of magnitude worse than Copenhagen, Denmark or Helsinki, Finland, and at least as bad as Stockholm, Sweden. A visiting Romanian friend even claimed that Oslo is now “worse than Paris.” I haven’t been to Paris for years and cannot confirm whether this is true.
I suspect that Oslo is still not as bad as some of the larger cities such as Amsterdam or London, but it’s catching up fast, accompanied by wild cheers from the intelligentsia and the heavily left-leaning press.
Siv Jensen from the right-wing Progress Party warned against a trend of “stealth-Islamization” recently. She was instantly compared to Nazi Germany by Per-Kristian Foss, an openly gay man from the “conservative” party. Native Norwegians are already a minority in some school districts in Oslo — among them the above-mentioned Grønland area — and will be a minority in their own capital city within a generation or so if the current level of immigration continues, and in the entire country later this century.
When I was born, Norway was still almost 100% white and one of the most ethnically homogeneous countries in the world. If I live a very long life and remain here, I may live to be a minority in my own country. This in a country which gained its independence as late as the twentieth century and which has no colonial history. The “colonial guilt” argument which Multiculturalists often use as a verbal weapon against France, Britain etc. is invalid and irrelevant. Mass immigration is also heavily promoted in Finland, Sweden, and Norway. It’s not because of any “past colonial history”, it’s because we are white. Period.
If you come to Oslo from abroad, you will usually arrive at the Oslo Central Station, which is very close to some of the worst areas in the city, including Grønland. When leaving the railway station and entering the main street, Karl Johan Street, you will be met by crowds of Somalis, Arabs and Kurds hanging around at street corners. There will be a few natives there, among them some drug addicts trying to get their latest shot of heroin or some blond girls acting as girlfriends/all-purpose sluts for members of various immigrant gangs. In the evenings you may also be fortunate enough to be harassed by aggressive Nigerian prostitutes. One recent addition to the Multicultural garden of diversity has been gangs of Gypsy criminals/organized beggars, who traveled to Western Europe instantly when Romania joined the EU. They have managed the almost impossible feat of outscoring even Muslim and African gangs when it comes to theft and petty crime.
This is what you see today if you walk down the main street of central Oslo, along with a large number of pregnant veiled women. It gets slightly better when you approach the Royal Castle, but not too long ago there was a shootout in broad daylight between two rival Pakistani gangs close to the Nobel Peace Center.
P.S.: The current chairman of the city government of Oslo, Erling Lae, is an openly gay man from the “conservative” party Høyre who loves mass immigration. The national leader of the conservative party, Erna Solberg, earlier called for the establishment of an official sharia council in Norway which Muslims can use for family matters. This would be “good for integration.”
