Q: Who is free to smile at a cartoon?
A: Frank Vanhecke and Filip Dewinter, both of Belgium's Vlaams Belang party, and Lars Hedegaard, president of both the Danish Free Press Society (Trykkefrihedsselskabet, if you're in the Danish know) and the International Free Press Society. Frank and Filip recently addressed the Danish Free Press Society in Copenhagen, where Lars presented them with autographed prints of Kurt Westergaard's famous Motoon.
It is no laughing matter that such smiles are courageous acts of defiance in this Age of the Dhimmi in which cravenness and self-suppression become ever more ordinary.
