Defending Lars Hedegaard's right to free speech equals defending the right of Western civilization to survive. As editor, columnist, and Danish and International Free Press Society president, Hedegaard dares to exercise his right to criticize Islam as freely as one may Christianity or Judaism.
Barring an effective international outcry — or a rare fever of Sudden Enlightenment Syndrome striking common sense into the head of Denmark's public prosecutor — Hedegaard will face trial on Danish racism charges and conviction alike on January 24, 2011: a veritable auto da fé.
In December 2009, Hedegaard remarked in a taped interview that a certain kind of domestic violence was peculiar to Muslim families ("they" rape their own children). He was charged as a common criminal.
