Danish police arrest man for promoting mosque arsons on Facebook

Danish police arrested a man for incitement in response to a recent Islamic Centre arson in Copenhagen. Facebook breifly shutdown ‘No to mosques – sincerely’ (Nej til moskéer – oprigtigt) as police investigated a slew of hateful messages. “I’m happy to donate a can of gasoline,” wrote one individual. Another posted “Good. Respect. Burn down that camel shit,” comments that brought about incitement charges. In a local radio interview, the individual expressed a desire to ‘shoot all the Muslims’ with an assault rifle. Police charged the man under article 136, paragraph 1 of the Criminal Code. The page recycles the myth of Islamisation in Denmark. It maintains that Islam is a political ideology, not religion. One post rallied their right of free speech until ‘the last mosque is torn down’ and the last Muslim ‘returned’. Upon returning to Facebook, the admins posted “We welcome you back after a minor bump on the road towards a Fatherland free of mosques and Islam”. Memes compare mosques to the human cost of tsunamis. One post promotes the far-right Danskernes Partie (The Danes’ Party), founded in 2011 by Daniel Carlsen. Carlsen used to be a member of the neo-Nazi Danish National Socialists (DNSB). At [...]
