Devout Muslims have openly called for their “brothers” to slaughter those attending a SIOE free speech event in Copenhagen today. Our European allies are standing in the breach and we salute them. Media, political and cultural elites demand that we “respect” this barbarism and abridge our freedoms so as not to upset savages. Never.
Despite the ongoing threats by barbarians in the cause of their “religion,” our colleagues in Europe are standing up to this violent intimidation and holding a free speech event featuring the artwork and cartoons from our Texas Muhammad exhibit. Bravo!
It is going on as we speak. Watch this space for updates.
Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced. Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society in which people differ on basic truths.
If a group will not bear being offended without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed while everyone else lives in fear, while other groups curtail their activities to appease the violent group. This results in the violent group being able to tyrannize the others. We see this happening in Europe, the US and everywhere Muslims emigrate.
Hundreds of policemen are on the square to protect the demonstration and it seems like there are policemen out on every street corner all around the area.
“We will do this as no one has the courage to display those cartoons,” Anders Gravers Pedersen, the chairman of ‘Stop Islamization of Denmark’, told public radio on Saturday. “The Danish press does not want to show. Teachers do not exhibit them while talking about the cartoon crisis. This is a huge problem for free speech,” Pedersen said
A police car with a SWAT team followed Anders and his security team on their way to the event. Now they are on the square preparing for the exhibition.
Dan Park — the well-known Swedish artist who was arrested recently because of his art and charged with “racism” — is present and will hold a speech and tell that the Swedish people support Denmark in our right to freedom of speech.
UPDATE at 9:56 am: Here is the latest from Anders Gravers:
Roughly 50 brave people attended the Muhammed cartoon event. The police allowed only people who knew someone there into the event.
Well over a hundred policemen were standing side by side, present on the square. The Danish SWAT team were present with snipers and policemen stood on all street corners. Policemen with machine guns were waiting in police cars all around the place.
This is what is required in the West post 9/11.
SIOE made an artistic touch to the exhibition by putting up an iglo-tent with yellow warning signs “demolition in progress” and inside the winning cartoon in a frame was placed together with two candle lights. SIOE called it “the journalist trap”. The journalists had to kneel down to peep in and take a picture of the winning cartoon and pictures where then taken of the kneeling journalists who were doing what they like to do most, bending down for Islam and the prophet Muhammed!
Dan Park and his Swedish friend Henrik Rönnquist represented Sweden and Henrik Rönnquist made a good speech.
All in all the exhibition was a great success.
People were talking about the cartoons and drawings that were made on big banners and analyzing them. The police had a zero tolerance when it came to shouting from any counter demonstrators. As soon as they began they were immediately carried away. All in all wonderful efficient police-work.
Bravo Copenhagen Police!
