Leaders of the important borgerretts and rasismekampen in the 60's and 70's would have been the shock of the extreme and totalitarian ideology of many of today's activists. Several of parolene it demonstrated during in the day, stands for the diametrical opposite of the universal rights that have been fought through by previous generations.
Fight against racism talked about that everyone should have equal rights, regardless of skin color. To define a person's personality or intentions out from the skin tone is racism. I could not said me agree more in the famous words of borgerettighetskjemperen Martin Luther King jr.:
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."Racism everywhere. Evil and destructive Columnist
This is a dream both I and a vast majority in the Uk parts. My contention is that today Norway is one of the least racist countries in the history of the world. People with different background or skin color are very well received by the Norwegian system.
Admittedly, it is difficult to come to a new country, but it is not that we have a racist system, as many claim.
Unfortunately, apparently extreme question in the united STATES now also begun to get a foothold in the Uk and Europe. These ekstremgrupperingenes version of "racism" is no longer about equal rights, or that no one should be judged on the basis of the color of their skin. On the contrary - many of today's activists are doing all they can to focus on skin color. They are fanatically concerned about skin color and races.
Many of these mean that people of different skin colour can't live together in a free democracy without "the system" systematically oppress minorities. These extremists believe that all of the white inhabitants, possess a so-called "white privilege".
This "white privilege" make that all white people are either racists, not have recognized that they are racists even, or shows full submission to the white privilege ideology. Political systems that require full submission to a political doctrine, is something every democratic society must meet with the condemnation. Otherwise the result will be streamlining, reduced meningsmangfold and ultimately a decay of democracy itself.The new rasismedebatten provides for the Right oxygen Comment
To judge an entire ethnic group on the basis of skin color is racist, also if this folkegruppen would prove to be white.
the Uk has a system that particularly encourage minorities to seek public office, we have a wide range of labour market schemes particularly to help immigrants in the work, and we have made laws and systems to prevent discrimination.
Unfortunately, they have the most extreme groups that are now demonstrating in the streets, gained a huge sway. We have seen that debattredaktøren in the New York Times has had to go off, because he allowed a republican to press an article with divergent opinions.
the Mayor of Minneapolis point out that the new superintendent will be black, but mentions nothing about the qualifications. Have we really come to the point where the skin tone of a public ofcer is a qualification in itself? There was this dream Luther King jr. fought for?
Unfortunately not only in the united STATES that the "dissenting" opinions can have consequences. Per-Willy Amundsen was together with the undersigned one of the few who spoke out critically to the health consequences of to collect 15 000 people to a demonstration during a medical emergency.
He was also one of the two VG would look at reiseregningene after the criticism, the undersigned was the other. We have of course nothing to hide, but more and more develops a self-censorship in areas that are perceived as "controversial" by the so-called "antirasistiske" activists.
inhibitory on the freedom of expression and the public conversation.
To be the one who defines what is racism in a society that takes completely away from racism, provides you with extremely great power. In Trondheim, the political majority with the MDG and the Ap in the tip prohibit racist demonstrations. We see that the spokesperson for the Green Youth seriously will demolish the statues of Winston Churchill, the quick resolution of commercial disputes that defeated nazism.
Democracy is hardly served with this kind of extreme ideologues get to decide what is racism and who gets to use their grunnlovfestede the right to speak or demonstrate.
We can't ban all speech of the most extreme in the MDG or SV don't like. Most people are "racists" if we put the most extreme definitions of reason, freedom of speech is being seriously threatened on the extreme effort both to define what is racism and who should be allowed to demonstrate.
When extreme forces are trying to define everything as racism, then do not know the people again, and fight against the real racism will lose support. When our inclusive community is stamped as a basic and systematic racist, when we lose people's understanding.
