Danish Government is Prosecuting Individuals for "Hate Speech"

Why has the Danish government switched sides?

A “terrible turn of events in Denmark,” writes Diana West. For years that country “has bravely spearheaded the West’s fights to save free speech, now and seemingly in perpetuity under assault from both the Marxian Left and the press of sharia (Islamic law).”

But now the Danish government appears to have switched sides. Instead of repealing its hate speech laws, it is prosecuting people under them merely for criticizing Muslim honor killings and “honor rapes” (that last one is my coinage). Last year Danish MP Jesper Langballe was convicted of “hate speech”–“racial discrimination”–for having discussed the honor killings in Muslim families. (Here is his ironic “confession.”) And this month Lars Hedegaard, the president of the International Free Press Society, will face trial for talking about the common incidence of within-family rapes in areas dominated by Muslim culture.

Update from Phyllis Chesler:

On February 24, 2011, the distinguished Lars Hedegaard, the President of the Danish Free Press Society and the International Free Press Society, will stand trial for telling the truth about Islamic gender apartheid.

Who is the turd that blew up the loo?

Danish police  still puzzled:  who is the premature exploding jihadist  who tried to blow up Jyllands Posten,  but instead fizzled in the old fashioned Nicky Reilly way in the toilet of a nearby hotel?

B.T. reports they identified the bomber, a Chechen-born Belgian named LD. Danish blogger Uriasposten did some digging and pegs him as Lors Doukaiev.

Molly Norris, Artist Behind ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ Cartoon, Goes Into Hiding

Dreadful. Fear beats cowardice:

The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, “going ghost”: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program — except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab.

“I did NOT ‘declare’ May 20 to be ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day,'” she said on her website.

The jihad of the word erupts in Denmark yet again

Hate speech laws lead straight into slavery.

Melanie Phillips

A chilling development in Denmark illustrates just how ‘hate speech’ laws, which were introduced by deluded western liberals, are being used to stifle and criminalise the expression of legitimate opinion and essential debate — the prerequisite of a liberal society. Lars Hedegaard is president of Denmark’s International Free Press Society, which is devoted to fighting to preserve freedom of expression — particularly against the threat from radical Islam to shut it down on the spurious grounds of ‘Islamophobia’. The inevitable has now happened: as Nathaniel Sugarman writes at The Legal Project, Hedegaard finds himself facing prosecution for ‘racism’ over remarks he has made about Islam.

"Assimilation is a crime against humanity" confirms ‘Integration of Muslims in Western Societies is Not Possible’

Also spoke Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s thug in chief who is presently  transforming Turkey into an Islamic caliphate. Meaning, of course, that  Islam must  conquer, destroy, replace unbelievers with Muslims,  because the lands of kaffirs and their properties are nothing more than coveted booty, and since unbelievers are “the vilest creatures because they have rejected faith” it is okay to kill them. Therefore “no Muslim can commit genocide”, and “killing unbelievers is a small matter to us…”

But don’t take my word for it.  Muslims are only doing God’s Allah’s work:

Qur’an 8:17, “It is not you who slew them; it was Allah who killed them. …   in other words: If a Muslim kills unbelievers, he doesn’t have to feel guilty, because it was allah who killed for him.

No, don’t believe me. But perhaps you’ll believe  Nicolai Sennels, a Danish psychologist who published a book entitled Among Criminal Muslims: A Psychologist’s Experience from Copenhagen.

Danish Psychologist Finds Integration of Muslims in Western Societies NOT Possible

H/T Theresaj/from the Opinionator

The below article confirms it is past time to stop the muslim immigration/colonization of Great Britain/Western countries. Clearly this is grossly unfair and detrimental to the indigenous peoples and – according to Danish psychologist – Nicolai Sennels -places muslims in a situation where the majority cannot or will not assimilate into the new culture/country.

Western countries thus face a choice of cultural extinction by submitting toIslamization/sharia law OR stopping muslim immigration,  stopping the implementation of sharia law and eradicating the current dhimmitude rampant in our governments, bureaucrats and forced upon our schools.

Our survival depends upon it.

The rise of the anti-multiculturalists

“I proudly say: Our Western culture is far superior to the Islamic culture. Don’t be affraid to say it. You are not a racist when you say that our own culture is better.”
Geert Wilders

After scoring gains in local elections, Dutch anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders is now primed to make waves in a national poll in June by tapping into discontent over Islam and globalization.

Wilder’s Speech at the House of Lords, from Atlas:

Ladies and gentlemen, make no mistake: The left is facilitating islamization. Leftists, liberals, are cheering for every new shariah bank being created, for every new shariah mortgage, for every new islamic school, for every new shariah court. Leftists consider Islam as being equal to our own culture. Shariah law or democracy? Islam or freedom? It doesn’t really matter to them. But it does matter to us. The entire leftist elite is guilty of practising cultural relativism. Universities, churches, trade unions, the media, politicians. They are all betraying our hard-won liberties.

Why I ask myself, why have the Leftists and liberals stopped to fight for them? Once the Leftists stood on the barricades for women’s rights. But where are they today? Where are they in 2010? They are looking the other way. Because they are addicted to cultural relativism and dependent on the Muslim vote. They are dependent on mass-immigration…  more

Shunning Kurt Westergaard

by Baron Bodissey/Gates of Vienna

Kurt Westergaard, the man behind the most famous Mohammed cartoon, offered a piece of his artwork to a charity auction for victims of the Haitian earthquake. The charity rebuffed his offer due to fears of violence.

“We value the safety of our employees quite highly”-

read it and weep!

Our Danish correspondent TB has collected and translated the material for this post, but I’ll post his appeal for the charity first, since the auction is on Saturday, and this is therefore time-sensitive:

I urge everyone to spread this web address. This is where you can bid on Kurt Westergaard’s painting or just leave money for the kids of Haiti.

Use this form to place a bid.

Here are the two men behind it. The headline above the picture reads: “Everybody loves Kurt, except Lauritz!”

Next is a brief news story about what happened, and below that is a press release from Galleri Draupner.

What is notable about the news story below is Lauritz’ explanation that “[w]e value the safety of our employees”. This is the customary reason given for self-censorship under the dhimmi regimes of the Islamized West. Yale University Press, Borders bookstores, various newspapers and television stations, the publishers who refused the novel about Aisha — all of them moderated their actions based on a perceived need to keep their employees safe.

Their rationale may be restated thus: “We fear that violent religious thugs will injure or kill us. Therefore we will accede to their demands in advance, in order to make sure that no one gets hurt.”

Jihad is not even necessary. The lickspittle craven cringing cowards of our cultural elite are ready to cry uncle before the first sword leaves its scabbard.

From The Copenhagen Post:

TV2’s morning lifestyle programme Go’morgen Danmark was the latest in a long line of those trying to help the victims of the Haitian earthquake. The show organised an auction through auctioneers, Lauritz.com, and asked well known politicians and personalities to donate personal items for the charity fundraiser.

A signed copy of Bill Clinton’s book dedicated to the head of the Social Democrats, concert and sports events tickets and a porcelain doll owned by Pia Kjærsgaard, head of the Danish People’s Party, are already listed in the auction.

Denmark: Cartoons (Still) Cause Mohammedan Terror

Well, If it wasn’t cartoons it would be something else. The soldiers of Allah make it their business to be enraged. These attacks will not stop until the Mohammedan invasion is reversed and the last welfare scrounger expelled.

Prosecutors say ‘truck bomb’ intended for newspaper

Details of trucks filled with explosives and European terror networks emerge in JP terror plot case

The Copenhagen Post

Terror plot accused planned to use truck bomb to blow up Jyllands-Posten newspaper, according to US Justice Department officials.

US citizen David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana, a Canadian citizen and native of Pakistan, are already in police custody for their alleged roles in the plot against the newspaper in retribution for its printing of the Mohammed cartoons.

It appears there have been renewed riots in Pakistan over the reprinting of the Muhammad cartoons in Danish and other Scandinavian newspapers….

Additional conspiracy charges were recently filed against Ilyas Kashmiri, who has been identified as a leader of terrorist organisation Harakat-ul Jihad Islami (HUJI) in Pakistan, which has connections to al Qaeda, and Abdur Rehman Hashim Syed, also known as Abdur Rehman, a retired major in the Pakistani military. Neither man is in police custody.

According to documents released by US authorities, Headley met Rehman and members of the Lashkar terrorist group in Pakistan. Rehman is said to have introduced Headley to Kashmiri who allegedly came up with the idea of the truck bomb.

Kashmiri is also reported to have put Headley in contact with various associates in a number of European countries ‘who could provide Headley with money, weapons and manpower for the newspaper attack’.

Since the initial details of the plot emerged in October with the arrests of Headley and Rana, the newspaper has tightened security at its Copenhagen and Ã…rhus locations.

The newspaper has also hired a head of security in the form of Torben Schiøtt, who has worked with the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) for the last 10 years.

He will be responsible for seeing through changes to security systems as well as training staff how to react in the case of a possible terrorist attack.

‘Hopefully the employees will get even more of a sense that we’re taking security seriously when there are people out there who say they want to threaten us. We’re taking action as if it could be a reality,’ said Jens Bruun, group managing director of Jyllands-Posten’s publisher.

Danes Study Immigrants Soldiers of Allah After Cartoonist Attack

Vlad Tepes Blog:

The NYT still sounds as if it was run by Walter Duranty:

NYT: COPENHAGEN — As part of the prolonged national headache caused by a Danish newspaper’s decision to publish 12 caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005, last weekend’s attack on one of the cartoonists responsible had a certain awful inevitability about it.

Once again, the motivation was fury, still fresh after all this time, over the dissemination of the cartoons. And once again, the circumstances — in this case, the news that the person accused of the attack was a Muslim immigrant suspected of having links to terrorists — has led Danes into an uneasy examination of their relationship to their Muslim population.

In a country that already has one of the strictest immigration policies in Western Europe, the attack has also spurred politicians from across the political spectrum to demand ever more stringent rules about who should be allowed to live here.

Fox guarding hen-house alert: Nasr Khadr

“I’m sorry to say, but it’s déjà vu — every time we experience an episode, then in 10 minutes we have them saying we have to have a new law,” said Naser Khader, a member of Parliament and the spokesman on foreign affairs and immigration for the Conservative People’s Party. He was speaking of the increasingly powerful Danish People’s Party, whose votes the government relies on to pass legislation and whose populist, anti-immigrant rhetoric has informed and inflamed debate in recent years.

Its all Denmark's Fault: "the cartoons crisis will remain an unfinished business for years to come…”

Unfinished Business?

Double-talk, evasion, a bit of whining and threats from the “Muslim community” after the failed attack on  Muhammad cartoonist Kurt Westergaard:

Danish Muslims: “we’re not ignorant, violent or backward

No. Neither was Muhammad, the pedophile, genocidal  slave trader they worship as Allah’s messenger boy. Mohammedans believe he was very progressive:

IslamOnline/with thanks to Counter Jihad

“We are here to stay, like it or not, get used to it.”

Mark Steyn: Something is Rotting in the State of Denmark

Something is Rotting in the State of Denmark [Mark Steyn]

Remember the Danish cartoons? A 27-year old Somali does:

Danish police on Friday shot and wounded a man trying to enter the home of an artist who drew controversial cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

The man, a 27-year-old Somalian who was armed with an axe, was caught trying to break into the home of Kurt Westergaard at 10pm local time, police said.

Police shot the man, injuring him in his leg…

Mr Westergaard’s cartoon was seen at the time as the most controversial, as it depicted the Prophet with a bomb in his turban.

“Controversial” but entirely vindicated by events since. To return to the theme of my post a couple of days back, a significant percentage of Muslims in the west do not understand concepts such as pluralism and freedom of expression. A further percentage understand them very well but reject them as loser fetishes incompatible with the requirements of Islamic supremacism – and have a shrewd sense that when, push comes to shove, a lot of these fine liberal concepts crumble to nothing. Is the percentage of Muslims who support Mr Westergaard’s right to free expression and the broader principles of intellectual liberty sufficient to make the importation of legions of “27-year old Somalians” a net benefit to Denmark?

The answer to that seems obvious. But Mr Westergaard is 74, and I’ll bet his half-century-younger attacker grasps however crudely the demographic arithmetic, in Scandinavia and beyond.

Actually, this one is my favorite:
