Topless Danish girls have come in between the Conservative and Danish People’s
(DPP) parties following a DPP call for a new introductory film about Denmark
for prospective immigrants to include pictures of bare female breasts.
The Conservative Integration Spokesman Naser Khader, however, says that
pictures of topless girls on a Danish beach would hardly scare extremists
away from applying to stay in Denmark.
“Bare breasts are not a protection against fundamentalism,” Khader says on his
“Quite on the contrary. Fundamentalists as so sex crazy that bare breasts
would make them flock to the country. Perhaps one should try naked pigs and
pork – that’ll keep them away...” Khader says.
The Danish People’s Party Spokesman Peter Skaarup has explained that in the
Netherlands, where a similar film has been shown, they show the naked truth
about what can be seen on a beach.
“There are of course a lot of other things that show what it is to be Danish,
and I’m sure that the film-maker has found them. But I reckon that if you
can’t stand seeing a couple of Danish breasts, you probably won’t come
here,” Skaarup tells Berlingske Tidende.
On the other hand, when asked whether bare-breasted Danish men should also be
in the film, Skaarup says he doesn’t want to ‘play director’.
