(Dansk Folkeparti DF) The Danish People's Party is the third largest party in Denmark taking 13.8% of the vote in the 2007 Parliamentary election and 12.3% of the vote in the 2011 Parliamentary election.
They hold their position as 3rd largest party despite holding the following views taken from their Party Program
1) The Danish People's Party wishes friendly and dynamic cooperation with all the democratic and freedom-loving peoples of the world, but we will not allow Denmark to surrender its sovereignty. As a consequence, the Danish People's Party opposes the European Union.
2) Denmark is not an immigrant-country and never has been. Thus we will not accept transformation to a multiethnic society. Denmark belongs to the Danes and its citizens must be able to live in a secure community founded on the rule of law, which develops along the lines of Danish culture.
so as we can see we have a "Major" political party in another EU country that not only opposes the EU but also opposes its country becoming multi-ethnic .
so my question is can Ireland learn lessons from the electoral success of this party , can we as a people learn from the Danish People who voted for these people in large enough numbers for the reasons above without being branded as racist or xenophobic , is it wrong to want an Independent country or preserve a particular type of society ?
