If you mock the Danes, they are more than likely to agree with you. I have never encountered a nation more eager to put its country and fellow countrymen down. Is it a recent thing? Could it be contributed to the last decade of the right-wing nutters, the Danish People's Party, hijacking our flag for a logo, effectively making the word (and by proximity: country) "Danish" synonymous with bigotry and narrow mindedness? I don't know. But it is getting really old, and I just wish we could evolve.
Ah, I needed to get that off my chest, thank you.
(I love my country, there, I said it)
