Mark Steyn har genudgivet sin tale fra sidste sommer på given foranledning. Jeg har den på video, men jeg må ikke udgive den for hans forlægger, gerne for ham. Måske er forsamlingen kontroversiel, det rammer flere og flere midt i en kontrovers-tid: Man kan have sex på TV, men man kan dårligt sige, at den der profet sikkert aldrig har eksisteret. Et postmoderne fremskridt. På grund af influenza kommer jeg ikke meget forbi bloggen de kommende dage.
A few days ago, a man tried to assassinate Lars Hedegaard in Copenhagen – an event Mark wrote about here and here, but about which the broader western media has been shamefully silent. Last summer, Mark had the honour of presenting Lars with a Defender of Freedom award at the European Parliament. Here is some of what Mark had to say:
Thank you. I don’t spend a lot of time in the European Parliament or in Brussels, and one of the few things that could persuade me to set foot here is the opportunity to say a word for the man we honour today, Lars Hedegaard.
After I accepted the invitation to come here, I received a couple of emails from prominent persons saying wasn’t I a bit worried that some of the people here are a bit controversial and it might not be a good idea to be seen in the same room as them. And that’s a fair point. Obviously, it would be far safer for one’s reputation to appear in the same room as less controversial figures such as the chaps appearing last weekend at the Muslim Council of Calgary’s big event in Alberta. Their keynote speaker was the Saudi-educated imam Dr Bilal Phillips, who’s on record as saying that every male homosexual should be executed. He later clarified his position: He only wants all male homosexuals in Muslim countries executed. “The media tends to take my words out of context,” he said.

Woman Condemned for Placard Warning of Turkish and Muslim Threat to Europe
Maria Frank, a 74-year-old woman, who leads an organisation called “Association for the Future of Germany” peacefully gathers signatures calling for a referendum on whether an “Islam in Europe” centre should be built in Munich. She is constantly mobbed by antifa, green and trade union activists, so her placards are hardly visible. Despite that, she is prosecuted for incitement to hatred.
In Rotkreuzplatz the 74-year-old pensioner exhibited a placard on this day, which among other thing said that after the siege of Vienna by the Ottoman empire in 1683 now “the arrogant Turks and Muslims … [are threatening] Europe again”. The accused thus established and suggested the reference to a war of aggression, at least “implicitly accepting” that fear of Islam and Turks would be generated, argued the state prosecutor. She thus disturbed the public peace. Woman Condemned for Placard Warning of Turkish and Muslim Threat to Europe, Hetze ohne Reue.
Det var ikke meningen
med spærregrænsen. Mon ikke der kommer et forslag om at sætte den ned til 2 %, hvis det er lavt nok? Två regeringspartier under spärren.
