He was later brought up on a “racism charge” based on a complaint filed by the Young Social Democrats, as reported in an article from TV2 (in Norwegian).
So it’s now officially illegal in Norway to say that immigrants have quicker tempers than ethnic Norwegians, or that they harass girls with blond hair.
I don’t have an English-language report on the charges against Mr. Tybring-Gjedde. Below the jump, however, is a subtitled video of the speech that got him in trouble, followed by a full transcript. Many thanks to Cecilie Gamst Berg for the translation, and to Kitman for the subtitling:
Dear National Congress,
The Labour Party has turned Oslo into an ethnically divided city.
In the Grorud Valley the indigenous population is moving out and non-Western immigrants are moving in.
Norwegians feel ostracised in their own neighbourhoods
children don’t feel at ease in kindergartens, schools and leisure activities.
No politicians should decide where people should live,
but the reason behind thousands of people deciding to move away
Is not something we politicians can just ignore.
In the Grorud Valley blonde girls are harassed into dying their hair dark.
Children are threatened with beatings if their lunch box contains salami.
Boys of immigrant backgrounds threaten to beat Norwegian boys
if they are not given extended playing time in football.
Bags of sweets handed out at special occasions in kindergartens,
are rifled through in search of gelatin.
Such bags are marked with pictures of pigs, as a warning.
On Evenings and weekends cars are set on fire, windows smashed in at schools.
This is not something Made up by a “mono-cultural” member of parliament like me
it is part of everyday life in the multi-cultural Grorud Valley in Oslo.
One of the people who decided to move away is Patrick Åserud.
Patrick works in a kindergarten at Grorud, like his wife. Both resourceful people.
But they can no longer stand the Labour Party’s demographic experiments.
As Patrick told me: An ethnic and cultural self-annihilation is taking place,
and worst of all, we are allowing it to happen.
British historian Toynbee said “Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder”
And that is exactly what is happening.
The modern Western civilisation based on:
science, secularity, democracy, equal worth, equality, pluralism and freedom
is gradually giving way to forces representing the opposite.
The changes are applauded by the cultural relativists of the political elite,
and academia and journalists, recruited from a one-sided radical environment.
We in the FRP (Norwegian Hard Right) has been accused of being extremist.
Dear Congress defending our values of liberty without compromise is not extremist.
What is extremist, is at all times caving in to special demands
which undermine our own culture and the values our country is built on.
And it is both radical and extremist to carry out immigration policies
which in a matter of decades will make the indigenous population
a minority in its own capital.
One of George Orwell’s many quotations says
“The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became truth”
“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act”
And dear National Congress: I will continue to be a revolutionary!
