Leading figure in the Danish government claims that Muslims are violent and commit terror.
The Danish prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen (Venstre, Liberal Conservative) has put the controversial Inger Støjberg (Venstre) in charge of Denmark’s migration policy. Inger Støjberg is known for her controversial view on Islam – she has the infamous Mohammed cartoon on her laptop background – and Muslim immigration.
Inger Støjberg recently claimed that followers of Islam are violent, use weapons as part of their religious cause and commit terror. Her statement was made in connection with the new movie The Book of Mormon, that makes fun of people believing in the Christian God. Støjberg criticises artist for not daring to make fun of Islam.
According to Inger Støjberg, who has been Minister of Migragtion and Integration since 2015, the West has already lost the battle of free speech. Nobody dares to make fun of Islam, just like The Book of Mormon makes fun of another religion:
“The point is that we have lost. We have let ourselves become scared of a religion whose fanatics have threatened us to silence. And we are not even willing to admit it,” she claims.
