Following numerous complaints from female customers about Muslim men getting entirely too personal, a night club manager was forced to ban them from his establishment to keep his clients safe. While the move has undoubtedly help create a better environment for his female customers, what happened after isn’t cool at all.
Tom Holden Jensen runs the Buddy Holly club in Søenderborg, Denmark, and he said he was receiving entirely too many complaints about Muslim men from Syria and Afghanistan getting too touchy-feely with the ladies on the dance floor, reports MailOnline. Putting the safety of his clients over political correctness, Jensen banned anybody incapable of speaking English, Danish, or German from his club, and now he’s under fire for it.
Jensen said that a number of women came to him with reports of the migrant men raping them “with their hands,” so he was forced to act. The issue, he says, is that due to the language barrier, his security can’t explain to the men that their actions aren’t acceptable in his club, and that a woman smiling at them isn’t an open invitation to be raped – anywhere in the free world.
“The challenge we face is that we can’t communicate with refugees, they don’t understand what I am saying at all.” said Jensen.
“We have experienced episodes where Syrians have danced too close to women occasions when they have put their hands on their bottoms,” Jensen told MailOnline. “They continued to do so even though the women told them to stop and leave them.”
While most people would applaud Jensen for taking proactive measure to keep his clients safe, not everyone is a big fan of the move. Tine Birkelund Thomsen, who works as a lawyer at Institute for Human Rights in Denmark, accuses Jensen and other club owners of openly discriminating against refugees, which he says is punishable by law.
“The law is not black and white, but it is a question about whether it is proportional what they do at the discotheque when they reject the Syrians,” he said. “But if it is because they do it as an excuse to keep a specific ethnic group out of the discotheque which it seems like it is discrimination and against the law.”
Although while Jensen realizes that he may face prosecution, or even jail for discrimination, he’s not backing down. In fact, he pretty much told the politically correct pansies where to stick it.
“We reserve the right to operate our business as we have done all the years, also before there was a war in Syria, and we intend to continue that also after the war ends,” he said. “And if someone thinks differently they are welcome to try it in court.”
What a perfect answer. It’s his club, which means his rules apply. Apparently, Jensen has to stones to do what European leaders refuse to do, and it’s not fair in the least that he could be prosecuted for it, but at least he isn’t backing down.
