Denmark: Liberal Utopia

I understand why progressives hate guns; they might lose control of the government if they get too out of control.  But why punish use of non-lethal weapons?  This story from Denmark reminds us where Obama and friends want to take us:
A 17-year-old girl who was physically and sexually attacked in Sønderborg will herself face charges for using pepper spray to fend off her assailant. 

The teenager told police that she was attacked in central Sønderborg on Wednesday at around 10pm by a dark-skinned English-speaking man. She said the man knocked her to the ground and then unbuttoned her pants and attempted to undress her. 
The girl was able to save herself from further assault by using pepper spray on the attacker, but now she may be the one who ends up in legal trouble. 
“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd.
 Or is it that progressives believe she should lie back and think of multiculturalism?

Progressives think in terms of victim groups. The more victimized a group is considered to be, the more its members must be catered to. In any conflict between groups, the more victimized group is right; in any conflict between individuals the individual who claims membership in the more victimized group is right.

What European feminists are now discovering is that Muslims outrank women in the progressive victim group hierarchy. Consequently, just as it would be wrong for a man to defend himself from abuse by a woman, it is wrong for a woman to defend herself from abuse by a Muslim.

In other words: the woman was privileged, so she had it coming.

This reminds me of a case in the VERY leftist city of Chapel Hill, NC. It was before NC passed a concealed carry law and may have been before Clinton's Assault Weapons Ban.

A college coed was jogging and was attacked by a thug. Luckily, she was carrying the "approved" self defence weapon - pepper spray - so she used it. This did not dissuade the mugger and he killed her anyway. In his murder trial, he received some leniency - either a reduced sentence or reduced charge, I don't remember - because the pepper spray caused him to become murderous.

So the victim did everything she was supposed to do - use non-lethal defence instead of a gun - she was killed anyway and her killer got leniency because of her attempt to defend herself. Can you say "War on women?"

Maybe she should have used a pencil?
I can see it now, no pencils or pens longer than 8 cm. (3 inches or so?)
"Teach the men not to rape" is the Leftists' non- solution. Nothing teaches the lesson to not rape like the one administered by this young lady here, because the lesson was administered at the same point in time as the offense, not a year later by a man in a black robe. Like punishing a dog, immediacy is the key.

Does Denmark have any laws against horseradish?
