File under: "those whom the gods wish to destroy..."

Melanie Philips in the Spectator writes:
Another bad blow against freedom in the west. Lars Hedegaard, President of the Danish Free Press Society and The International Free Press Society, was yesterday found guilty of hate speech under the Danish penal code.
Yet again we see the vile poison of 'hate speech' laws being used to bludgeon freedom, and yet again it is to protect that wilting and delicate flower Islam.

The case has dragged on for a long time. Apparently he was acquitted by one court, so they needed to take him to a higher court in order to punish him. Here is a statement he made back in 2009, which clearly indicates the monstrousness and perversity of the Danish authorities, and remember readers, under our treasonous government and its implementation of the European Arrest Warrant, anyone in this country can have their door kicked in at 3 in the morning and be dragged off to Denmark, without even being told the charge BECAUSE THAT'S "JUSTICE" AND "FREEDOM" IN THE FUCKING EU.

UPDATE: Lars Hegegaard has issued a statement:
"It is with great sadness I have to report that Denmark’s reputation as a haven of free speech and a bastion of resistance to sharia encroachment is irreparably tarnished. Denmark is my country and I used to be proud of it.

On May 3 the Eastern Superior Court in Copenhagen convicted me of hate speech under Denmark’s infamous Article 266 b of the penal code – a rubber provision that may be stretched to serve any political purpose dear to the hearts of the ruling elites.

My crime is to have called attention to the horrific conditions of Muslim women and for my audacity the court has now enabled my detractors to label me a racist."

Read the whole statement here.

Also here is an interview from January 2011.

Plus, here's Pat Condel giving his view on the matter in hand:

It is so demonstrably wrong, so based on ideology and nothing else, that we are in very great danger ourselves, no matter how innocent we are.
