That's some American education level geography there.
I wasn't trying to say that Denmark is in Eastern Europe, merely that these hard line attitudes of the sort that were described aren't confined to people from Eastern Europe. The reason my brother's in-laws are even in Canada to begin with is because they felt that they were overtaxed back home. Never mind that Denmark is routinely touted as the happiest and best country on the planet in which to live, these people saw the cost of everything and the value of nothing. So of course now that they're 45 year residents of Canada they're hard-core conservatives who watch Fox News, think that Rob Ford is intelligent and are just racist enough to let you know they're racists without ever saying or doing anything overtly racist. And like any Fox watcher, they feel that they are always right, even when proven wrong. My brother gets into arguments with them which results in weeks of silence from them (which is actually good for him) and then when enough time has passed they act as though nothing happened and it is never discussed nor are any mea culpa's offered on their part.

So no, they aren't Eastern European but they may as well be.

Kind of reminds me of an old Larry David story:


Larry David leaves out the part where it was the real life Kramer (on which Larry David based the TV show Kramer character on) was the person who told him "just go back to work the next day as if nothing happened".

I’d say most of the Danes I know are somewhat condescending, perhaps even a bit insufferable like they just know that they’re better than us, what with their culture and their multilingualism and their low carbon footprints.

But I kind of agree with them, so I let it slide.
