Christopher Hitchens Stands Up for Denmark

Christopher Hitchens wrote a superb (as usual) article today in Slate regarding the freedom of the press crisis that now faces much of the free world. He asks why we are ignoring Denmark, a staunch ally. Why indeed?

Read the article, as you should. Then, if you live in the Washington DC area, consider contacting Hitchens, as he is hoping to have a peaceful event at the Danish embassy there in order to show our solidarity with Denmark at this important time.

As for me, I would love to help organize a sister event at the Danish embassy in NYC. I e-mailed Hitchens (don't know if he will actually reply), but if any of you are in or around New York and would like to participate in such a venture, please contact me (click on the EMAIL ME icon on the left sidebar or leave a comment).

For the record: I have said it before and will say it again. I don't think deliberately offending religious sensibilities of anyone is tasteful. However, free society doesn't mean freedom from being offended. We cannot allow radical Islam to dictate what we can and cannot print or broadcast. Peaceful protests? Fine. Boycotting? Again, while it is hurting Danish companies, it is also an acceptable way to protest. But burning, rioting and death threats cross the line, as does a religion that expects special treatment while doing plenty of offending itself.

If you're interested in the event I mentioned above, I hope to hear from you. I certainly can't do it alone!
