The Danish painter Jens Philip Yazdani, who until recently was the host on the Radio4 programme 'The Next Generation', has come in hefty headwind, after he on Sunday made a posting on his Facebook profile about the violent rebellion and civil unrest in the UNITED states.
the Unrest is occurred after an unarmed black man by the name of George Floyd died in connection with an arrest, where a police officer put his knee on his neck for a longer time and kept the knee, while the Floyd several times pointed out that he could not breathe.
Floyd's death has resulted, that several police stations have been set on fire in the UNITED states, and that the buildings have been stormed and destroyed.

Jens Philip Yazdanis lookup he refers is precisely the many brandstiftelser in positive terms and encourages the us population to its own, and it has set the minds of the boil on the social media, where several call it the 'call to terror and violence' and outright 'distasteful'.
'IN the UNITED states have demonstrators burned at least one police station in Minneapolis after the killing of (...) George Floyd. It is a good thing. A proportionate and effective action. When the police consistently butcher black people, while the authorities are more or less looking passively on, the public should of course take the spoon in his own hand and stop the police (...) It is good that police stations are being burnt. But it is not enough', he writes in the advertisement, where he has a call to the african-american population.

'But until that showdown comes, and come it must, should the black population be sure to protect themselves. Here is a photography of the police is not foolish or irrational. It is not (only) powerless anger, but also practical revolutionary activity, which aims to create the change you want to see', he writes, and continues:
'the Atlanta rapper and activist Kille Mike (...) said in a speech the other day, that the black should not burn their own home - but burn this racist system down to the ground. (...) To organize themselves, voice, etc. (...) But I think well, he might add, that they (...) could very well burn some more police stations of', writes Jens Philip Yazdani among other things, further and tells that it is logical to go for a 'disarmament of the police through their own direct action'.

Jens Philip Yazdanis lookup has since been deleted. It is, however, subsequently been shared several places on the social media. Ekstra Bladet is also in possession of a screenshot of the lookup.
'Well, now we have the ballad. Radio4 host and former chairman of the Danish high school students, Jens Philip Yezdani believes that it is well being burned police stations down in the UNITED states. And there must be like to be burned more of. 'It is good that police stations are being burnt. But it is not enough' and 'the while, waiting for the next election, could very well burn some more police stations of.' A licensbetalt host, which calls to violence and vandalism. I wonder if the protests come in the course of the day', writes journalist Lars Fogt, for example, on the advertisement.
Also radio host Dan Rachlin has been at the keys in order to express his criticism of Jens Philip Yazdanis lookup.
'This is so lam an opinion, from an, apparently, confused boy, not yet aware of what words can mean. And what's worse is, employed at a nationwide radio, which puts time and space to his unarticulated fnidder', he writes in a posting on his Facebook profile.

He explains to Ekstra Bladet.
- Jens Philip has got a platform, which he uses as gifted. His attitudes come out in an inarticulate way. It is simply foolish to try to defend or even worse - encourage violence, says Rachlin, and continues:
- I'm thinking that Radio4 and their management should probably consider who they throw into the ether, it is simply too unintelligent to a state-funded media, he says.
En Ekstra Bladet prisoners Jens Philip Yazdani over the phone, he stresses that he still stands by his statements in Facebook-the lookup and tells that it is not himself that deleted the post.
- I have not even deleted the advertisement. It is Facebook who have deleted it because they believe it violates the community rules and calls for violence. But I stand by the positions I come up with, he says, and continues:
- I was at the demonstration in front of the us embassy in solidarity with the black population in the goes to show that I am against the trend, the us police have to beat black people to death, and after the demonstration, I wrote a posting on Facebook as a wake-up call for the Danish politicians to say that they should man up and say, that we will not find ourselves in that such a thing takes place in a country, which is one of our closest allies, he says.
- But this gives you the right to incite violence?
- I think it is hypocrisy when people say that I calls for violence. To burn a concrete building - a police station - is not violence. Rather, it is sabotage, and vandalism. It is something else. I advocate for non-violence. It I admit to that. A part of non-violence can be to destroy the machinery. The violence emanates from the police and not from those who are protesting, so I think it is a fine and effective action to burn police buildings down. I will never justify or shelf, or encourage violence against people. Violence against people is a disgrace. It I'm fighting against. But to destroy police equipment, I think, is progressive.
- So that you do not understand all the criticism being directed against you?
- I fails to understand as to why people hazards such up. I do not understand why this is so controversial. Why is it for example, okay to be an advocate for war, and so the dangers of people such up about it here. It is somewhat hypocrisy.
- More points out that it is problematic, you as the host of a state-funded media come with such statements. What do you think of it?
- I am not a radio presenter of Radio4 longer. My contract expired two weeks ago, he says, and continues:
- But it is important to be able to distinguish between private and public speech, and so one's work as a radio announcer. One should not be fired on the basis of its political positions. I would have done it no matter what. I mean it, I say, and I think, what I say is true, and it is regardless of who my employer is.Show more Close
