Ra Ranunkel — chairman of something called the ‘cooperation council’ of the Vollsmose neighborhood of the Danish city of Odense (pop.160,000+) — is now a * courtesy of a coupla mouthy kids armed with rocks. Or as my handy machinetranslation puts it:
During an interview with TV 2/FYN were throwing stones at the Co Chair Ra Buttercup and shouted epithets.
Ra Buttercup participated Friday in a broadcast on TV 2/FYN where he said that it was usually the Danes went beyond where cars were burned or when there was robbery. In turn, the Somalis and Palestinians who stood behind.
The early October interview with Buttercup has been distributed widely among the right online — for example: ‘Danish leftist gets stoned’, youtube.com/watch?v=FyDi_UQf1kw — as evidence of the perils of leftism. As far as I can tell, however, Buttercup is not a former leftist, and has in fact become known as a critic of ethnic violence: “Ra Ranunkel says that there’s a hardcore gang of Somalis who commit attacks that are deliberately directed at Danes. And it’s primarily the Palestinians who burn the Danes’ cars and control Bøgetorvet (Bøge square)” (Odense: Danes persecuted in Vollsmose, October 8, 2010). Nevertheless, the story has been spun by various English-language sauces as a case of a naive leftist getting their just desserts. Maybe this is because he blames, in part, activists belonging to the Danish People’s Party: “[Buttercup] thinks that the attacks are directed at Danes as a response to ‘the Danish group of DPP-ers and racists’ that in the past 5-6 years have been loudly voicing their views”.
Oh. I also discovered that Buttercup is the proud recipient of the prestigious ‘Golden Frog’ award, presented to him in 2008 by that bloody foreigner Crown Princess Mary.

Elsewhere, “Swedish police fear a lone gunman may be behind a spate of racially-motivated shootings in the southern city of Malmo” (Swedish police link ‘racist’ shootings to lone gunman, BBC, October 22, 2010 | New Shootings Reported in Malmö, The Local, October 26, 2010). The last time someone went out shooting non-White immigrants in Sweden in this manner was in the early ’90s, when a frustrated yuppie named John Ausonius (”The Laser Man”) shot eleven people, killing one. Ausonius is currently serving a life sentence. The latest, apparently racially-motivated shooting spree takes place as Sweden lurches to the right: a Stieg Larsson nightmare.
