Re: The incident in Minsk
I'm not aware of a statement by Caroline supporting any particular political persons or parties. However, an academic chooses to define her actions, is down to his academic reputation, and unfortunate as it might be he is able to hide behind his academic status without having to justify his or her own personal position either morally or politically.
As for the statements calling for Caroline's reprimand by politicians of the SF and V, on allegations of caroline being involved in a situation from which political capital was made by a politician (I will avoid comment on what is subjective democratic validity), I have to say I am highly disappointed that the media has failed to pick up on the fact that these very politicians are in fact, making political capital out of the very same situation.
Was caroline right or wrong to A) play the event, or B) Embrace the politician hijacking the event?
A) I'm not aware of any moral or other law that states that provision of aid must be discriminatory. on the contrary, many aid organisations will provide medical and or other assistance to either party in a need situation.
B) Probably not, but its a large assumption that she knew who the said politician was, and if so we are back to point A in which the object is to provide impartial aid.
So, did in fact aid get to the injured party? I have not seen a valid report that it did not, so I assume yes.
Dose anyone, and that includes that includes "all" the parties making political capital from the event, actually believe that Caroline went to Belarus for the principal aim of supporting a Politacal agenda?
I think we all know the answer to that question is an emphatic NO.
I hope and know that Caroline is fully aware of her support in Denmark. I also hope that the Danish electorate are wise to the antics of the particular politician at the centre of this affair and vote with their heads rather than their social obligation, and that the said politician leaves office asap.
Playing toilet polotics with Denmark's sweetheart is going to lead to a job cleaning toilets if there is any justice on earth.
