The -yet again-Inevitable conclusion
The backlash to the retarded boycott campaign has arrived, just as I predicted: Support for Denmark's anti-immigration Danish People's Party has soared in the wake of Muslim protests against cartoons of the prophet Muhammad, an opinion poll shows. Backing for the DPP is up 4.9 points since elections a year ago to 18.2 percent, a poll of 1,124 Danes by Megafon for broadcaster TV2 on Feb. 23 showed. The Liberal-Conservative government's support fell 1.9 points to 37.4 percent and backing for the opposition Social Democrats fell 3.7 points to 22.1 percent. The poll had a margin of error of 1-3 percentage points. The 11-year-old DPP, which in 2002 compared Islam to a ``plague,'' may overtake the Social Democrats as Denmark's second- biggest party, said Roger Buch, associate professor of political science at the Danish School of Journalism in Aarhus. The increase in support for the DPP may cause a dilemma for the government, which relies on DPP backing in parliament. ``We're witnessing a shift in the Danish political landscape,'' Buch said. ``This can, without a doubt, be attributed to the whole Muhammad cartoon debate.'' [...] Pia Kjaersgaard, leader and founder of the People's Party, has said members of the delegation should be tried for treason and should lose their Danish residence permits. She has also demanded that imams sign declarations of loyalty toward Denmark. ``The Danish People's Party has been able to tell people, just look, we were right all along,'' said Lars Bille, associate professor at Copenhagen University in a Feb. 14 interview. I hope you are happy boycott supporters! Expect this to happen all over europe now retards!
