School in Denmark bans traditional Danish song about blonde girl after foreign teacher was ‘offended’ by it


A traditional Danish song has sparked controversy recently. A female teacher of foreign origin at the Danish Business School was offended by a line in the song (the first line) being sung at a school gathering.
 
The title of the old song is "The Danish Song is a Young Blonde Girl" – a classic, beautiful and very Danish song about the beauty and soul of Denmark and the Danes.
 
The University promptly apologised and said they wouldn’t sing the song again and thanked the teacher for her vigilance on behalf of PC culture.
 
However, the good thing about all this is that it upset people on both sides of the political spectrum.
 
The majority of the Danes were outraged that she, who had been welcomed in their country, was allowed to stop one of their most beautiful and iconic songs from being sung.
 
And as a result they decided that it was more PC nonsense than they could take and were united – and sang the song in Parliament as a protest against the lunacy.
 
Danish politician Marcus Knuth posted the video on his Facebook and added:
 
"Christmas these days is about the importance of preserving and fighting for our Danish traditions who are under increased pressure of political correctness…
 
"The latest example's about the Danish song about a young blonde girl. A teacher was so offended, that she complained about it…
 
"Come one, this is one of the Danish songs about the essence of being Danish, It’s a pillar of our culture. We should never apologise for that."
