"Lars Hedegaard vs Basil Mouse" by Danish artist Uwe Max Jensen
Pt. 8 is here.
One of the critically important issues ignored by the Fox panel in last night's debate was Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on Muslim immigration into the United States.
Naturally, then, inquiring Fox minds also ignored the globe-shifting migration of hundreds of thousands of mainly Muslim men into Europe in the last year alone. Thus, there were no questions about how the candidates might seek to protect the USA from the effects of mass Islamic immigration, such as the largely Islamic epidemic of violence and sexual assaults against women and children that these `rapefugees' have brought to cities and towns across Europe. Several possible reasons for such a "lapse" on the part of such intrepid journalists include: 1) only Donald Trump has offered the solution to such a crisis; 2) his solution is wildly popular with voters; 3) the outcome of the civil case against Trump University is so much more important to the future of this country.
Exit polling tells us that Trump's proposed Muslim immigration ban, which is the only way for the USA to avoid Europe's Islamizing tragedy, is an animating issue for GOP voters. I have little doubt this is why Fox imposed a kind of gag order on itself and avoided the question. Exit polling tells us that in New Hampshire, two out of three GOP voters support such a ban; in South Carolina, three out of four GOP; and across Super Tuesday's 15 states, 60 percent of GOP voters also support the Muslim immigration ban.
This one proposal would do more to safeguard the First Amendment of the Constitution than anything any other candidate is proposing. This is due to Islamic prohibitions on freedom of religion and freedom of speech both. The simple formula is: the more Islam there is in a society, the less freedom there is in a society.
Having chronicled far too many chapters of the West's surrender of freedom to accomodate and then submit to Islam's increasing presence in the West (think Danish Mohammed cartoons, for example), I think it is fair to say that in this smoking aftermath of Islamic cultural conquest are sure signs of institutional madness. Nowhere is there stronger proof than in the continuing saga of Denmark's Lars Hedegaard.
Today, the Danish court convicted Lars Hedegaard of violating a gag order by mentioning the name of Basil Hassan, the man widely reported in the media around the world and strongly suspected by the Danish security services and government of having tried to assassinate Lars three years ago.
As readers of the blog well know, Lars, a famous Danish journalist, historian and critic of Islam, was very nearly assassinated outside his home in a suburb of Copenhagen in February 2013. The man believed to be Lars' would-be assassin, Basil Hassan, 27, a Muslim Danish citizen of Palestinian descent, fled the country and was tracked to and arrested in Turkey, from which Denmark sought his extradition. Rather than comply, however, Turkey released Hassan in a prisoner swap with the Islamic State. A diplomatic incident between Denmark and Turkey took shape, erupted, but, like the suspected shooter Hassan, evanesced into nothingness.
Life went on for Lars, very differently, yes, but, the operative phrase here is: it did go on. He had survived being shot at point blank range, plus a fistfight with a man forty-some years is junior, and, of course, more media firestorms.
Not unexpectedly for a man of letters, Lars ended up writing a memoir about his experience of having been shot at for writing his thoughts and speaking his mind. A mainstream Danish publisher brought the book out a few months ago, and it has received excellent reviews. In this book about nearly being assassinated, Lars naturally mentions Basil Hassan, the man who nearly did the assassinating. It is a name has been all over world media and back again -- even if Hassan himself has not returned to Denmark stand trial. Now, however, several years after the attempted murder, Basil Hassan is protected by a Danish court gag order.
So, the Danish public prosecutor brought charges against Lars for "violating" it.
Madness. Guilty as charged, Lars must now pay some $1,500 and court costs.
But madness knows no boundaries.
One of the reviewers of the book also mentioned would-be assassin, Basil Hassan.
The Danish public prosecutor brought charges against her, too; also against his publisher, who published Lars' book with Basil Hassan's name in it in the first place.
It doesn't stop.
Last week in court, some supporters of Lars showed up wearing tee-shirts with the Basil Hassan's name on them. As ordered by the court of pain of arrest, they removed them, but, later taking pictures of the shirts outside the courtroom, they, too, were arrested on the spot and also charged.
Lars tells me that in the course of his court arguments, the public prosecutor himself mentioned Basil Hassan by name. No word yet on whether he has arrested himself.
Lars posted his reaction to his conviction on Facebook.
"My road to crime"
Basil, his family, friends and supportes on the Left have won an illustrious victory over what was once the Danish judicial system.
It will gladden Basil's heart while he is keeping busy slitting the throats of infidels, burying others alive and raping little girls in Syria -- whatever else holy warriors spend their time doing.
Who cares? The Danish government has defended its gag order.
Somehow, I think Fox can relate.
