Uh, Islam is not a race, but why split hairs on this glorious day on which freedom triumphed over the forces of darkness, oppression, and subjugation?
More on the case here: Sharia Crackdown on Free Speech: Heresy Trial of Lars Hedegaard. Hedegaard was tried and acquitted for remarks he made during a 2009 interview concerning sexual abuse within Muslim communities. But, in true Eurabian fashion,
Hedegaard’s acquittal was appealed. He was retried on April 26, 2011, and convicted on May 3. When Hedegaard appealed his conviction to the Danish Supreme Court, the prosecutor cross-appealed, demanding an increase in the fine. In an interview with the Legal Project, Mr. Hedegaard provided some thoughts on the process:
You could say in our country — as opposed to yours — we have not double but triple jeopardy. If the prosecutor doesn’t have his way in lower court, he can appeal to Superior Court. And if he doesn’t get it there, he can appeal to the Supreme Court. So, you can certainly be dragged through a legal process lasting years and years in this country. That is the sad state of affairs.
Sad indeed. But oh happy day.
Lars Hedegaard will be speaking at the first world freedom congress on September 11, 2012 SION Freedom Congress at UN Plaza. Make sure you are in New York on 911 at this historic event.
