Because we can’t be honest about Islam, we can’t be honest about the nature of what is happening on Europe’s borders: These are not families of “refugees” – young, old, men, women, children – but an army of aggressive young men. Their arrival will further weaken the Continent’s wobbly commitment to core liberties. The argument against free speech is increasingly that it is unwise to be so “provocative”. With a million more Muslim males in the neighborhood, there will be a million more reasons to tiptoe around lest one accidentally “provoke” someone.
I’m not willing to surrender free speech in any corner of the still just-about-free world. So I’ll be in Copenhagen at the end of the month to stand with a small number of truly brave people who don’t get a tenth of the support they should either from their fellow Danes or the rest of Europe. (…)
The event will be held in the Danish Parliament, not because it’s a very attractive building but rather, as Douglas explains, “because it’s the only place in Denmark sufficiently secure enough that – we hope – the now traditional gunmen won’t be able to get in and shoot everyone.”
As I’ve noted before, since I last appeared in Copenhagen, some three-quarters of those I shared the stage with that day have been shot at, firebombed or forced to retire from public life and go into hiding.
