Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows

or quotes from four persons, four of the cultural-political elites of the 80s and 90s in Denmark regarding the introduction of Muslim immigrants in large numbers. Original texts with names and sources below the fold.

The Islamic world has become a diverse part of our daily life with exciting stores and smiling faces. Without these influences, Denmark would be a colorless place.

Think what we can learn from Muslims. I think we should let all the world’s refugees stream across our borders so we can lap up all that culture.

It is clear that we cannot stop the invasion, mostly because we are unworthy. We ought to accept this contribution enthusiastically at a time when we, in truth, don’t have all that much to offer anyway.

The fact of the matter is, immigrants and refugees enrich the Danish culture and not, as some think, dominate and occupy it.

The genesis for this collection was a comment in this post that used the first quote above. A post indicating that Muslims are indeed dominating and occupying the local cultures in and around where they live.

I thought it might be worthwhile to have more than the one and also names, dates, and places where these were made. I eventually found my way to this post which had collected three more.

Den islamiske verden er blevet en mangfoldig del af vores hverdag med spændende butikker og smilende folk. Uden denne påvirkning ville Danmark være farveløs.
Jytte Hilden (Socialdemokratiet), Århus Stiftstidende 26/3 1996

Tænk på, hvad vi kan lære af muslimerne, jeg synes, at vi skal lade verdens flygtninge vælte ind over vore grænser, og labbe al deres kultur i os.
Dirckinck-Holmfeld, TV-vært, EkstraBladet 3/10 1986

Og det er ganske vist, at kan vi ikke hamle op med invasionen, er det såmænd nok fordi, vi ikke er bedre værd. Vi burde med entusiasme tage imod tilskudet på et tidspunkt, hvor vi – ærlig talt – ikke har så forfærdelig meget at byde på selv.
Klaus Rifbjerg, forfatter og forlagsdirektør, Politiken 24/4 l988)

Men faktum er jo, at indvandrere og flygtninge er med til at berige den danske kultur, og ikke, som nogle mener, dominere den og sætter sig på den.
Ritt Bjerregaard (Socialdemokratiet), Jyllands-Posten 27/10 1991
