Many will be outraged and what not, the paper will weasel around saying that it's an apology for causing offense, that they're all for freedom of speech and all that crap, but ultimately more and more westerners will join the ranks of the dhimmi. You see the westerner no longer knows what freedom and liberty are, enough of us morons think that freedom to do stuff is brought about by lawyers and parliaments and all that crap.Times Online - A leading Danish newspaper was today accused of betraying the freedom of the press after breaking ranks with its rivals to offer an apology to Muslims for publishing a cartoon depicting the prophet Muhammad with a bomb-shaped turban. Politiken issued the apology after settling with a Saudi lawyer representing eight Muslim groups that complained after the cartoon was reprinted by 11 Danish papers in solidarity with the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, who received death threats last year.
They think that because some fancy piece of paper says that your soft, fat ass can say what you want to, that you can. The truth is that many of us are too dumb to understand that you only have the rights that you are prepared to and have the means to defend. See, even after all the death threats, muslim violence and what not, no one in Europe is prepared to consider legalizing the right to bear arms. No matter how many people are out to slit Kurt Westergaard's throat from ear to ear, they'll never let him take care of himself. He'll just have to deal with life as a coward and in hiding.
And it's not just a fault of western governments, they are there because we put them there and the sad reality is that most of us don't want the responsibility of defending our rights. I'm sure some of you may have seen a video of an assault at a Seattle train station on a teenager in front of Security guards. At the time there was a lot of heat aimed at the security that just stood by, but what stuck me was that no one else did anything either. The reality is that on some level, we know we don't have the means to do anything. So we'd much rather others do it for us and if they won't, well then maybe those rights might not be so important after all.
While I'm on the subject of dhimmi westerners, remember Abdelbaset Al Megrahi? He was the Libyan terrorist piece of shit that was freed by Britain so that he could go back to Libya to die in peace or so they promised. Put the release aside for a second, this fellow was actually in intensive care and moved into a VIP wing before he was released. I think we all know the shambles that is the British healthcare system with people dying in their thousands thanks to it. Here was a terrorist found guilty of murdering 270 people, yes 270 people and he was moved from ICU to a VIP wing!
Unbelievable isn't it, if some bureaucratic scumbag came to me and told me, oh look we have this terrible case of this murderer suffering from cancer and needs immediate treatment, I can assure you I'd be saying, so? Leave the cockroach there, the best I can offer is a koran and 'die slow bitch'!
But that's not the advanced dhimmi western government you see, they freed him and now it's almost 7 months and the bastard is still alive. Not a word from the British government and not very surprisingly, latest polls show that the electorate hasn't quite had their fill of Labour.
So goes the westerner, push him a little and he'll quickly give up his rights and dishonor his dead.
