I had an opportunity to listen to lots of Ole’s lecturers. In each of these lectures he publically discussed the issues of migration from lesser developed countries to Europe and US, as well as the issue of Islam. He was strictly against migration and migrants. Just as Karol, who I quoted above, he considered migrants from other parts of the world as unfit to live in Western countries. In his view migrants did not understand Western liberal and humanistic values. Neither did they understand the Western culture.
Ole was openly against multiculturalism. Multicultural groups, in his view, were not cohesive. In multicultural societies people were unable to genuinely connect with one another. Multicultural societies, in his view, were not coming together, as they should.
He did not support multicultural marriages either. He was advising his European students against marrying or even having sex with black people. He was openly advising against having multiracial children. He was very clear that was something that he did not support. He said, I remember it clearly, that such children were confused because they didn’t know who they were. They were also, in his opinion, less intelligent.
His views were supported by his students but gained lots of criticism online.
He would often say, scornfully and with disdain, that Netherlands are already Africa. He spoke a lot about killing of the Dutch journalist who made a critical movie about Islam. He also met with Geert Wildres. There was a photo of Ole and his aide Tomek, posted online, taken during their meeting with Geert Wilders.
France was, in Ole’s view, an exotic Muslim country. He despaired that by the 2050 the birth rate of Muslim children in France will exceed the birth rate of non-Muslim children. France, in his view was lost for the European culture. With its entire heritage.
UK press, in his view, was owned, by India, Pakistan and Middle East. At least that’s what I understood him saying. In his view that was tragic.
He supported American’s right wing and Trump’s immigration policies.
During his lectures in Russia he was very open about his right wing sympathies.
