AT touched a nerve in Denmark

By

Yesterday, we published an item entitled "Buy Danish! (to counter the Islamic boycott)" asking our readers to support our friends in Denmark, who face an Islamic boycott, diplomatic troubles and terror threats. The Danish crime? Maintaining their traditions of freedom of the press and freedom of personal expression.

A Danish newspaper dared to publish cartoon drawings of Muhammad. Islamofascists believe they can impose global sharia law on small countries first and big countries later. So they have been whipping up hatred and a boycott campaign against Denmark. That will teach the Danes (and others) to self—censor. Police now guard the Danish newspaper 24 hours a day.

Evidently news of The American Thinker's campaign has entered the Danish mass media. It looks as though Denmark has been feeling quite alone as it bravely faces terror, diplomatic and commercial threats of real consequence.

We have been inundated with email from Denmark, thanking us. Some of it is utterly fascinating, eloquent, and direct, speaking politically incorrect truths in a civilized Danish manner. Skill levels in English range from rudimentary to literarily gifted. All of it so far is deeply thankful.

Denmark is the point—of—the—spear role in battling for freedom from Sharia limits on personal expression. We owe it to ourselves, even more than we owe it to the Danes, to buy Danish products.
