Danish right wing politician and unapologetic anti-Islam critic, Rasmus Paludan (right), decides to play a game of “Catch the quran” in the street, right in the heart of a heavily Muslim area of Copenhagen, causing Muslims and their useful idiots of Antifa to riot and torch numerous cars and other items in the streets.
Sputnik News Violent Muslim migrant riots triggered by nationalists’ protests have engulfed the Copenhagen district of Nørrebro with street and car fires and involved skirmishes with the police. A manifestation by Rasmus Paludan, the leader of the right-wing anti-Islam and anti-immigration party Stram Kurs (“Hard Line”) has led to mass unrest with fires, tear gas and stones hurled at riot police.
A longer movie clip that the party itself has published on its YouTube shows how an African man suddenly attacks Paludan, but gets incapacitated by the police. This happened after the party leader and his associate tossed the Quran back and forth.
From there, the violence escalated. Images published by the daily newspaper BT show masked police with their weapons drawn. BT described how immigrant youth started throwing parked bicycles on Nørrebrogade Street to block the traffic. Other clips show the police being attacked, the streets ravaged by flames and black some rising over rooftops. Another clip described the encounter as “war between police and Muslims.”
Copenhagen Post A car had earlier exploded in the park at around 1 am on Sunday morning. It proved to be the first of many vehicles set on fire by Muslims over the following day. In total, the police report at least 70 such fires.
As counter-demonstrators moved in to attack Paludan, police officers chose to protect him (Wow! that’s a shock), at which point an estimated gathering of 200 Muslims started hurling cobblestones at them. The police responded with tear gas and some officers were even seen with their guns drawn, although none were fired.
Some 23 people have so far been arrested as a result of yesterday’s unrest, which included pitched battles involving the police, numerous fires being set alight and all-out carnage – mostly in the Copenhagen district of Nørrebro, but also in other areas of the Danish capital.
By his own admission, Rasmus Paludan remained unperturbed by the attack and intends to hold a similar demonstration in Nørrebro at the same square. We were not able to do it yesterday. I could only stand there for two minutes and 43 seconds before it all went to hell”, Paludan explained. “Then we were led away by the police. You can see that cops pull me by the arms. It’s not that I voluntarily left the place”, he pointed out.
