«DENMARK IS CAPTURED BY THE NEW TOTALITARIAN REGIME»: A DANISH PROFESSOR HAS COMPARED ISLAM WITH NAZISM
For many years, Europe has been experiencing a severe immigration crisis, as its territory continues a massive influx of migrants from the troubled regions of the Middle East and North Africa. The opinion of European politicians and heads of government is divided on this issue. Some are in favor of accepting migrants, others are against. The migration issue provokes many politicians, experts, and high-ranking officials to make extraordinary statements. One such statement was made by a Professor of psychology from Denmark, who is a representative of the anti-immigration party «Stram Kurs» («Hard line»). The Danish anti-immigration party «Stram Kurs», which identifies itself as a group of «ethnic-nationalist utilitarians», introduced 82-year-old Professor of psychology Helmut Nyborg as one of its best candidates. It was this man who compared Islam with Nazism, and warned that the religion of the Muslim world «will capture Denmark.»
His statement was made in a promotional video on the TV2 website. He called Islam a «dangerous totalitarian system» capable of taking over the entire country.
«My childhood was destroyed by Nazism. I learned to distance myself from totalitarian systems. When I became interested in demographic forecast and development, I found that Denmark was captured by another totalitarian system. Namely, Islam,» said the Professor in a video in which candidates for the EP share their thoughts.
On the page «TV2» in Facebook speech, Nyborg met with mixed reactions. Some accused the Professor of «fascist views», others – in his controversial opinion.
Nyborg is a controversial figure among the Danish public for his research on topics such as the inheritance of intelligence and the relationship between gender and intelligence. In one of his articles, he reported a five-point difference in average IQ in favor of men, which caused a strong reaction in the Danish public and scientific circles.
