Let’s see what’s on Gates of Vienna this morning — Heck, they’re nattering on and on about the Danes again! What is it with them and Denmark?
It may be that some people are tired of hearing about Denmark and the fallout from the Great Cartoon Crisis. Readers who have an opinion should feel free to vent it in the comments.
But Danish reader (and translator) kepiblanc, in the comments to last night’s post, seems a little nervous about all the attention that Denmark has been getting in this space:
Lately I feel that Danish affairs are being a little over-exposed here, but — on the other hand — I’m pretty sure we are at the front line in this war and — maybe — “last nation standing”.
Denmark is not so much the “last nation standing” in Europe as the only one fighting back. It can’t even claim the role of “canary in the coal mine”, since it has steadfastly refused to keel over and die the face of the Islamists’ demands.
In fact, if you read the rest of kepiblanc’s comment, you’ll find very interesting news about a poll of Danish opinion concerning Islam. See if you’re surprised by the results.
Denmark represents our future. Or, to be more precise, it represents one of two possible futures. The other future, the one represented by Sweden and France, is the path of surrender, passivity, and fatalism. It is the path of cowardice and dhimmitude.
Anyone who thinks that the issue of radical Islam is overblown, who thinks that it is a scare tactic or a fantasy dreamed up by Islamophobes and neocons, should consider the following fact: A minister in the Danish government has publicly admitted that he censors himself because he fears violent retribution from Muslims.
Do you think he’s deluded? Or a fool? Or a hysteric? Or is he close enough to Ground Zero in Eurabia to know what’s really going on?
The significance of this event cannot be overstated: Bertel Haarder believes that the government of Denmark — the same government of which he is a member — cannot protect him from people who would kill him because of what he says. He believes that the police, the laws, and the courts of the sovereign democratic state of Denmark are of no use, and are unable to defend him from his country’s enemies.
And all this is happening because Denmark is fighting back against political correctness, multiculturalism, and Islamic fascism.
The alternative is to be, like Sweden, a whole nation full of Bertel Haarders, to be voluntarily enslaved by multicultural cant, and thus in thrall to Islam.
The choice can’t be any clearer than that: those are the two doors, and we must walk through one of them.
Which one will we choose?
