Africans launch Adopt-A-Dane charity – daily news spoof

I dag’s Stor Nyheder! Danmark’s har planer om at gøre det sværere for flygtninge beder denne sjove video spoof annoncerer en afrikansk velgørenhed villig til at tage de gamle nordboere.

English: In today’s Big News! Denmark’s plan to make it harder on refugees has prompted a video spoof announcing an African charity willing to take on the needs of old Danes.

In reality, Denmark has passed new laws aimed at discouraging refugees from Africa and the Middle East especially – including a plan to confiscate money and assets from people seeking asylum in the Scandinavian nation, something Switzerland also does. Some Danes opposing what had been a fairly generous and welcoming approach to those seeking refuge have complained that the country cannot even take care of its own elderly.

Since so many in Denmark are reacting to the refugee crisis by publicly complaining that elderly citizens are not being cared for, Nouwah and his colleagues at their new fake charity with the nice brown butterfly logo are urging old Danes to move to Africa.

“In Africa we cherish our old people,” said Nouwah. “Sure, we might have contaminated water, epidemics and lack electricity but it seems old Danes are worse off. Please let us take care of them.”

“Denmark needs warm hands,” said Nouwah. “Down here we got plenty.”
