Kampen fortsetter

For tre dager siden ble Trykkefrihedsselskbates leder, Lars Hedegard, dømt for blasfemi. De som tror at Hedegaard er en knust mann tar grundig feil. Hedegaard kommer til å kjempe mot tyranni og for frihet så lenge det er pust i han. Og støtten fra internasjonalt hold er massiv.

Hege Storhaug, HRS

Epostboksen min vitner om støtte til Hedegaard fra sterke navn internasjonalt. Da dette er en privat korrespondanse som pågår, mener jeg det ikke er riktig å utlevere navnene. Jeg kan dog presentere noen sitat:

Lars, we are all with you. Hamlet, Act 1, scene 4, line 90.Marcellus: (I don’t need to quote it.)

Lars, «This is only the end of the beginning…» (Winston C.)

It will enable your final triumph to become a mighty victory for freedom of speech and TRUTH.

This decision is a travesty of justice. If there is a way to be of help, please let us know.

Keep up the good fight Lars!

Terrible, terrible, terrible what happened to you, Lars, and what is happening to our beloved Europe…. Warmest

Lars, I am with you. I am reminded of the following from Shakespeare’s Henry V, 1598:

KING HENRY V:This story shall the good man teach his son;And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,From this day to the ending of the world,But we in it shall be remember’d;We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;For he to-day that sheds his blood with meShall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,This day shall gentle his condition:And gentlemen in England now a-bedShall think themselves accursed they were not here,And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaksThat fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Your fearlessness and courage are encouraging in the face of this horrible — actually, devastating — news.

Jeg stopper her. Les Hedegaards kommentar til dommen og tiden fremover.

The Struggle Goes On

Copenhagen, May 5, 2011

Statement by Lars Hedegaard on his conviction for «hate speech»

It is with great sadness I have to report that Denmark’s reputation as a haven of free speech and a bastion of resistance to sharia encroachment is irreparably tarnished. Denmark is my country and I used to be proud of it.

On May 3 the Eastern Superior Court in Copenhagen convicted me of hate speech under Denmark’s infamous Article 266 b of the penal code – a rubber provision that may be stretched to serve any political purpose dear to the hearts of the ruling elites.

My crime is to have called attention to the horrific conditions of Muslim women and for my audacity the court has now enabled my detractors to label me a racist.

Muslims can say whatever they want with impunity. Just a few weeks ago Denmark opened its gates to the hate-spewing preacher Bilal Philips, known for his advocacy of wife-beating and the killing of homosexuals. He was provided a platform in Copenhagen and nobody thought of dragging him into court.

Our authorities and their allies among the pc elites have chosen sides in the struggle between the forces of freedom and the forces of darkness and so opted for the oppressors of their own people and against those deserving of their protection.

The real victims of this despicable case are freedom of speech and the tens of thousands of girls and women – Muslim as well as non-Muslim – whose plight may no longer be mentioned in my country for fear of legal prosecution and public denigration.

We cannot permit this outcome to stand. I have therefore decided to appeal my conviction to the Supreme Court and – if that is denied – to the European Court of Human Rights.

This is a fight for liberty against tyranny. It will be long and hard but losing is no option.
