(video, sendt d. 22 eller 23 februar i hvilken Wilders også får sagt noget, der ikke er hørt før.)

BECK: I just have to give you this quote and get your thoughts — oh, there are my glasses. “The fact that in Mohammedan Law, every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property either as a child, a wife, or concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.” Pretty outrageous stuff.


BECK: You didn’t say that, though.

WILDERS: I didn’t say that, no.

BECK: No. Winston Churchill said that.

WILDERS: Yes. And Winston Churchill, as a matter of fact, in a book in the ’50s also made a comparison, like Oriana Fallaci in Italy but also Winston Churchill, the comparison between Mein Kampf and the Koran. One of the reasons that I’m being prosecuted, I don’t remember Winston Churchill who got a Nobel Prize for this book and really would have been prosecuted. FOX

International Free Press Society and Geert Wilders Call for An International First Amendment And Ban On All Hate Speech Laws.  Lars Hedegaard, President of the International Free Press Society, will introduce Mr. Wilders and outline the IFPS 2009 campaign to ban hate speech laws and to work for an “International First Amendment.” Hedegaard said:

The hate speech and blasphemy laws that are now common in many European countries lack clarity as to precisely what they aim to criminalize. Recent experience with their implementation further shows that they are unequally applied. This state of affairs is intolerable and the IFPS must therefore demand that all such laws be repealed. The way to deal with controversial, offensive or even hateful statements — unless they are directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action — is to expose them to public debate and criticism.

Billigste svenske krone nogensinde

Sandt eller falsk ?

Engelsk TV: Det siges at indvandringsproblemer fejes under guldtæppet i Sverige. Har jeg ret ?

Jan Guillou: Du tager fejl, du må have hørt det fra en dansker, det siger de altid om os. De siger “Vi er åbenlyse racister, vi publicerer Muhammed billeder hele tiden, fordi vi er for ytringsfrihed. Men I svenskere er ligesom os, I tør bare ikke  sige det.” Vi har diskuteret indvandring og racisme i årtier, meget mere intensivt end danskerne-.

Mark Steyn: Aqsa to grind

Canadiske Mark Steyns klummer er altid en nydelse at læse, hvis man ellers kunne tale om nydelse i forbindelse med de emner han dækker. Analysen er skarp som en ragekniv, og biddet og sarkasmen vendt mod eliten og den kulturelle mainstream i det nordamerikanske Sverige sætter i det mindste vores egen debat i perspektiv. Helt så slemt er det vist ikke hos os. Her om mediernes undvigemanøvrer og venden tingene på hovedet, i sagen om teenagepigen Aqsa Parvez der blev kvalt af sin far (LFPC).

For reasons best known to himself, The National Post‘s Chris Selley chose to pick a fight with the few people who want to ensure that Aqsa Parvez’s short life is memorialized by something more than the plot number of an unmarked grave. Pamela Geller and Kathy Shaidle can take care of themselves, and have done, but the reality is that if it weren’t for the frothing loony ranting wackjob haters of the blogosphere a 16-year old girl murdered for not wanting to be imprisoned by her family’s culture would be entirely forgotten.

So what’s more offensive? The moral outrage of Pamela Geller at the westernization of “honor killing”? Or the mainstream coverage by a politically correct media? Here’s what the lunchtime poll at Toronto’s CITY-TV thought was the big issue arising from Aqsa Parvez’s murder:

Do you think society discriminates against women who wear a hijab?

Gotcha. It’s our fault.

Here’s the weirdly contorted lengths Canada’s Number One news anchor, CTV’s Lloyd Robertson, went to to avoid telling his viewers Aqsa Parvez had been strangled?

Her neck was compressed, to the point she couldn’t breathe.

Here’s the Montreal Gazette’s editorialists insisting that Mr Parvez and every pur laine papa in la belle province are merely different points on the same continuum:

Muhammed Parvez might have been fighting a losing battle trying to make Aqsa wear a hijab, but that hardly sets him apart. Few are the fathers, of any faith or none, who have not clashed with their adolescent daughters over something…

So which response to this issue is, in Chris Selley’s words, “a few chick peas short of a falafel”? The Misses Geller and Shaidle? Or the sensible, reasonable, moderate, measured approach of the PC eunuchs at Canada’s most-watched TV stations and major metropolitan newspapers?

When Ezra Levant went nuclear on the “human rights” regime’s medieval ass, wise old birds like Catsmeat Kinsella cautioned that Canadians wouldn’t put up with some bezerk loon trashing “their” beloved human rights commissions. Really? Whether or not we achieve the repeal of Section 13 and its provincial equivalents, I doubt The Globe & Mail, Professor Moon, and even very tentatively the House of Commons would even be considering the question had it not been for Ezra going ballistic. That’s what it took to drag the debate even half-an-inch in the direction of sanity.

I have no views on Chris Selley one way or the other. But I note his response to the Prime Minister’s interview with Ken Whyte:

Principal Harper Ends The Free Speech Food Fight.

Each to his own. I don’t happen to think of the Queen’s first minister as the “principal” with me and the rest of the citizenry as his charges. The head of government is no more or less than just that: He is not my “leader”, and certainly not on inalienable rights. But the headline seems to sum up Mr Selley’s approach: the judicious arbiter settling midway between two extremes.

Not for me. As I’ve said re the so-called “global consensus” of the UN, if you mix half-a-pint of vanilla ice cream with half-a-pint of dog feces the result will taste more like the latter than the former. Likewise, if you split the difference between me and Commissar Barbara Hall, or Ezra and Jennifer Lynch, QC, you’re still quite a long ways down the road to tyranny. “Moderation” – of the CTV/Gazette school – is a euphemism for drift, for letting the culture be tugged gently, imperceptibly, remorselessly into darkness:

I like the way Deborah Gyapong puts it:

You know why I want to defend Kathy Shaidle? Because she helps keep me honest about whether my civility really is a choice and not a blind or fearful conformity to the pressures of political correctness. She helps me to think about where I might be influenced by group think and the progressive air we breathe in Ottawa. She reminds me of where the line is between kindness and weakness.

Just so. Self-suppression is the most cost-effective form of tyranny. Or as Andrew Klavan says:

The whole way liberals work is to redefine manners and morals in such a fashion that conservative common sense automatically becomes hateful. If you note that women and men are different, you’re misogynistic. If you denounce the destruction of marriage in black communities, you’re racist or moralistic. If you call for the defense of America against the world-wide Islamist menace, you’re a bigoted warmonger. If we take this garbage seriously even for an instant, we spend our whole lives playing catch-up, saying sorry, going on defense.

Just so. Mr Selley specifically objects to Kathy Shaidle calling Arabs “violent retards”. Well, to revive an old device that availed me nought at the British Columbia show trial, “of course” not all Arabs are violent retards, but Arab culture is certainly both violent and retarded. It’s politically retarded, intellectually retarded, scientifically retarded, judicially retarded, economically retarded, retarded on almost every objective measurement, from women’s rights to free speech. The famous statistic from the United Nations’ Arab Human Development Index (2003) – that more books are translated into Spanish in an average year than have been translated into Arabic in the last millennium – is itself a good working definition of “retarded”, of a culture that recoils from inquiry and curiosity about the other.

And, as I know from many conversations in London and Paris and (more covertly) in Amman and Cairo, those individual Arabs who are not “violent retards” well understand that – even if the PC eunuchs don’t. When Robert Kilroy-Silk made some observations about the Arab penchant for amputations, repression of women and a generally celebratory attitude to 9/11 – none of which is factually in dispute – the BBC fired him.

So what’s the greater sin? That Miss Shaidle fails to draw a clear bright line between a generally observable phenomenon and a statistically 100% universal phenomenon? Or that even raising the generally observable phenomenon is now beyond the pale?

Oh, and by the way: If accuracy is the issue, what are we to make of Cheri DiNovo’s assertion that most Canadian men are “violent retards”? Is that true? Or is Ms DiNovo (as several readers have suggested to me) “falsely shouting ‘Fire!’ in a theatre”?

I don’t want more Aqsa Parvezes to be murdered in Toronto or Buffalo, Sweden or Germany. But I can see why some uptight Muslim might not appreciate why the urge to behead your womenfolk is necessarily any kookier than the urge to bebollock your own balls in the cause of multiculti squeamishness. Shaidle, Klavan and Gyapong are right: The pressure to self-neuter will lead to catastrophe. Mark Steyn: Aqsa to grind

Då jag bodde i Sverige i mitten av 80-talet man fick 87 öre för en dansk krona.

Indtil 1992 var det omvendt, dog ikke helt så grelt. Der er enkelte der er glade: Danska kronan ny hårdvaluta Nu har den danska kronan slagit topprekord. Idag får man 150 svenska kronor för 100 danska. Det är den högsta noteringen någonsin och för svenskar som jobbar i Danmark betyder det här rejält mycket mer i lönekuvertet. Anställd: ”Vi är mycket nöjda” – Ja, det handlar om 2 000-3 000 tusen kronor mer den här månaden för min del. Jag kollar kursen och kan sedan bestämma när jag vill att min lön ska betalas ut, säger Ronny Hansson som jobbar… Read more »
