Norwegian Man Moves out of “Norwegian” Town

Andreas Slettholm, Aftenposten (Oslo), March 23, 2011

[Translation by Google Translate]

Patrick Åserud has had enough of the pressure, salami-free lunches, blonde safety and poor language environments.

– I will not let my children grow up here. That I do not take a chance on.

He has decided. After a lifetime of Differences in Oslo, has in recent years’ Patrick Åserud scared away. This summer he moves with his wife and daughter from kindergarten Furuset and out of town.

He moves from a local community he believes is about to crack under the weight of failed integration. Disturbing stories

– It’s been hard to be ethnic Norwegian in Groruddalen. It’s about massive language problems, as well as a pressure to adapt to the norms that feels totally alien to us who have a Western way of life and thinking.

– There are nursery schools where almost no children or parents speaking Norwegian, and schools where children are being threatened with a beating to bring a packed lunch of salami.

– Girls are bullied for being blonde, dark hair and colors to fit into. It is not okay to be gay at school, not an atheist and certainly not a Jew. Especially the last three years have been frightening to see and hear about what’s happening, “said Åserud. A majority of parents need an interpreter

He said the day care job. It is not at least 15 years as an educator in schools and kindergartens that he marks an increasingly inequitable distribution of ethnic Norwegians and minorities on the body.

– We had to have an interpreter in 10 of 18 parents conversations. What kind of opportunities do you really create good environments and providing a good working relationship with the home, then, asks rhetorically Åserud. Thousands have gone from the valley

He feels that it is he and his family who must be integrated as a minority in their own country.

– I have been positive and optimistic in the past. But there is a limit when it gets a majority who do not speak Norwegian well. We are many who feel this strongly, regardless of skin color. An Indian family knows I expected to live as Muslims because they are brown in the skin.

– Many people will probably think that you are sensitive and out of step with the new Norway?

– If so, there are very many who are sensitive. Ranking is that people move here. They do so because of the concrete experiences they have had, “Åserud.

Figures from Statistics Norway support the claim. There are now 3000 fewer ethnic Norwegians Groruddalen than just two years ago. Depopulation occurs faster than before, but over time the figures speak clearly: Groruddalen has lost 20,000 ethnic Norwegians in the last 15 years, despite population growth. Ethnic Norwegian-share has dropped from 82 to 56 percent in 15 years. Fears Malmo-states

And this year is Åserud part of the statistics. He takes the family to Hamar.

– We have no connection there, but we could not afford the house on Høybråten, Røa or other places where we do not feel strange at nærsenteret says Åserud.

He’s not a good recipe on how development can be reversed.

– It’s hard to say. I fear Rosengård-states (charged to the suburbs in Malmo, journ.anm). There fired shots in the street on average once every week. I want the best for the city, but I do not feel I can carry the integration on my shoulders, “said Åserud. Facts: This is the case

Last week, told Aftenposten that 4 in 10 parents seeking skolebytte for their children in some minority schools.

Headmasters confirms that the minority share is given as the reason for their flight. School researcher Ivar Morken believes that schools are “society’s dustbin,” because they are thrown into the demographic problems that can not be solved by the schools themselves.

    You want people who cannot adapt to your country to leave without a fight?

    The answer is simple: indemnify them. That means pay them. Some, after all, have worked and are entitled to future tax-funded pensions. Just start paying them now, at a reduced rate.

    Others are collecting public welfare benefits. Wouldn’t it be better to pay them for the rest of their lives outside the country than inside?

    The sums they would receive would be a fortune in their home countries. Still they would worse off, but if, at a minimum, they cannot give up their Hobbesian, dog-eat-dog, take until someone cuts your arm off world view, they do not belong in the Western World.

    Those who want to help non-Western people need to know: We have to help them where they are. If we bring them here, we will destroy ourselves. In the end, electro-mechanical and cybernetic civilization could fail worldwide. If that happens, will anyone be better off. If you measure “better off” by standards like good food and good health, good education, liberty and long life spans, the answer is no.

    Tusen Tak, Thank you for your comment.

    As a White Australian of Norwegian descent, I have had an enduring love afair with Norway, and would really like to live in Bergen or Tromso and contribute to the country.

    But as I’m white, I can’t get in (I checked the UDI website regularly)

    feel free to get in touch with me, or put me in touch with Norwegian women, as I’m ready and able to work hard for Norway;) Thanks!

    Whites are in denial and engaging in avoidance behavior.

    Instead, he should start a group to take action.

    Illegal aliens cost billions dollars in welfare per year and both type of aliens take away jobs, depress wages and cause unemployment, congestion, inflation and crime.

    The more aliens we let in (legally and illegally), the more they sponsor more relatives and tempt even more illegals, causing a population explosion. We cannot fit the whole world here.

    For USA and Europe to survive, we must totally ban all immigration–legal and illegal. A moratorium is not enough. All aliens must be deported and borders enforced and birthright citizenship banned, unless both parents are citizens.

    It is time to amend our constitutions to allow binding superseding national referenda, so the American and European citizens can decide for themselves whether or not they want to control their borders or how much immigration to allow. Most countries, even 3rd world countries, have national referenda, but we, do not even have this most basic tool of democracy–binding superseding national referenda.

    See National Initiative For Democracy, at

    The National Initiative For Democracy is in the process of making a documentary about it. There are many groups being formed to advance our basic human right–national referenda. It is time to take action and save our nation or it will be gone for ever.
