Melanie Phillips spoke to the Danish Free Press Society in Copenhagen on Thursday. The video of her speech has been posted on YouTube in six parts, so I won’t embed it here. But Steen has all six videos embedded in this post.
Some choice quotes:
- “You might call this onslaught against free speech ‘the Jihad of the Word’.”
- “The battleground that we’re actually on is the battleground of the mind.”
- “Liberalism is in danger of disappearing up its own backside.”
- “For those transnational progressives, the obstacle to Utopia is the nation. For the Left, the obstacle to Utopia is American exceptionalism. For the Western intelligentsia, it’s Israel. And for the Islamic world, it’s all of the above — and the entire un-Islamic world as an obstacle to Utopia.”
