Earlier today I posted TB’s translation of two appalling “cultural enrichment” news items from Denmark. This prompted an email back-and-forth between us. After I posted his translations, TB said this:
I am actually thinking about making it a habit to translate all these “of-an-ethnic-origin-other-than-Danish” articles every time they appear. I’m telling you: it will not be long before Hells Angels and Jønke are no longer the only ones to strike back against these fascist psychopaths.
In the meantime, though, it might be in the interest of ordinary Danes to get all these small everyday stories out to as many people as possible. Just to enhance foreign understanding of the reaction that will for certain be a reality some time in the nearest future…
This is an unbearable situation. And the water is reaching its boiling point.
I suggested that we might make it a regular “Cultural Enrichment” series, and that perhaps other countries would eventually contribute their own articles to it. TB agreed, and said this:
- - - - - - - - -
I was actually thinking about that myself when I did the translations. All these small, everyday stories that fill up our local newspapers and describe the politically-imposed so-called paradise making the lives of so many ordinary citizens a living hell.
Actually, these small stories are of great importance. I guess if the world knew what everyday life was like in, for example, the Balkans in the years leading up to the war, the depiction of Muslims as innocent victims would never have happened.
He suggested that the new feature be called “The International Cultural Enrichment News”, which gave me the opportunity to make a new logo and add it retroactively to this morning’s post.
But in order to make this feature truly international, I’ll need the help of our readers. Refer to the Danish news stories to get an idea of the sort of items we’re looking for. When articles like this appear in the newspapers in your country, please send me a tip.
As of right now I can generally obtain translations of Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Dutch, German, Italian, and Spanish, thanks to our tireless volunteers. French, Romanian, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, and Portuguese are a bit dicier, but probably doable (even if I have to do the French myself).
So send them in, and I’ll get them translated if I can, and post them under the new header.
The UK, Sweden, and the Netherlands should provide plenty of material. But there’s a hitch: newspapers in those countries often don’t specify the ethnicity of a criminal suspect. So if you have to deduce that a particular event is a case of cultural enrichment, please include an explanation of the clues in the news article that led you to draw your conclusions.
I don’t know if this project will get off the ground, but it’s worth a try. Even if Denmark ends up as the only participant, it’s a useful exercise to shine a light under the refrigerators and behind the baseboards of the postmodern multicultural state.
