Norwegian politician: Claims of systemic racism are “far-left extremist thoughts”

Follow us on social media!

Former Norwegian Justice Minister says that the idea of systemic racism in Norway stems from far-left ideology.

Per-Willy Amundsen from the right-wing FrP party posted criticisms on facebook regarding demonstrations in Norway in support of the protests in the USA.

Protests have taken place across Norway, with several thousand gathering in central Oslo protesting against racism.

“When we go so far to say that we experience a systematic racism that permeates the entire society, I think one goes very far in claims that cannot be documented” said Per-Willy Amundsen to NRK.

“If one claims that Norway is permeated by systemic racism, that is far-left extremist thought. It is a description of society that is wrong and extremist. After my understanding it is far-left extremist statements”.

In his facebook post, the politician is upset with those breaking the corona rules to protest against racism that he says doesn’t exist. He ends his facebook post by saying “I can only hope that people don’t die because of far-left extremists need to push an agenda that doesn’t concern Norway.”

Jeg er stolt av norsk politi. De kan håndtere kriminelle uten overdreven bruk av vold. De er i stand til å ivareta…

He also told NRK that Norway is definitely one of the least racist countries in the world.

“I don’t say that racism doesn’t exist, but institutionalized racism doesn’t exist. Everyone knows that there are people and events that have been racist. That is obvious. Maybe there are racists in Norway as well. Individuals and individual events. But it doesn’t describe the whole of Norwegian society. That I consider is going much further, and I mean that the protesters don’t have any proof of” said Per-Willy Amundsen.

Another politician for the same political party wants all of the protesters in Norway to be put in a 14 day quarantine and that they will have to pay the economic costs themselves.

“Here we have for 3 months sacrificed and forsaken almost everything. People have had to take it easy, had their rights taken away and not been allowed to say goodbye to their relatives. I wonder when the government will stop having an understanding for such demonstrations and rather start action to save life and health” said Jon Helgheim from FrP.
