Yes There are Riots in France, But Did You know About the Riots in Denmark

Our news media has been swarmed by the reports of nightly riots in France, that have now moved into Paris proper.

But are you aware that riots are also happening in Denmark. They are also starting in the poorer Muslim immigrant areas. To read more go here.

I was unaware of these riots. Isn't it interesting how the media focuses on some things, totally ignoring others or downplaying them. Like Katrina in New Orleans...that was horrible, but what about those in Mississippi, Alabama and even Florida?

Let's hope the media wakes up and covers this situation better. Our country tends to ignore events in the rest of the world unless they are really big, perhaps it is time we open our eyes a bit wider and be more aware.

Hi DL, the report is from a non English paper.

“Nothing of it has penetrated to the English-language sections of Danish media,” laments the Viking Observer.

"The Observer took the trouble to translate into English the following from Danish Jyllands-Posten:“Rosenhoj Mall has several nights in a row been the scene of the worst riots in Århus for years. “This area belongs to us,” the youths proclaim. Sunday evening saw a new arson attack.'

The source of this report comes from Canada

Bob, at this link they are also saying that rioting is going on in Britain.
"The riots currently underway in France, Denmark and Britain..."
