A group of Danish musicians play terrible jazz at far-right rallies to drown them out

A group of musicians has come up with a creative way to drown out the hateful rhetoric of far-right Danish politician Rasmus Paludan. Protest group Free Jazz Mod Paludan (FJMP) follows Paludan around Denmark and plays terrible jazz music wherever he goes.

Paludan is the leader of the far-right political party Hard Line. In 2019 he was convicted of expressing racist views, and later sentenced to a three-month prison term. Paludan has repeatedly stated that he wishes to ban Islam in Denmark.

And although the party doesn't seem to be taken very seriously, Hard Line almost won a seat in parliament during the last Danish election. That's probably why FJMP decided to begin following Paludan around the country. Paludan is known for organizing far-right demonstrations in areas large migrant populations.

"This initiative fits that really well in that we simply try to make more noise than him. We just provoke Paludan as much as he provokes others. I want to make it very visible how destructive he is, and the louder we can play, the more attention we can draw to it. What he does is incredibly, incredibly evil."

FJMP has raised $10,000 All profits go to the charity Together WE PUSH, which "organizes help refugee families with children at the Danish deportation center Sjślsmark."

1. Hahaha

We gotta do this to republicans. I can't play an instrument but I'll get a big rubber balloon and put in some balloon farts. And I got a kazoo,a harmonica and a wood flute and sistra.

And I forgot I can actually play a jaw harp. And I got a copper drum I can play too . It's big and it can get really loud.

Fascism means way more to them than us. Some few still remember living under it.
