The most culturally restrictive of the European concessions to Islam are the incitement-to-hate laws. Just the chance that racially-toned speech may trigger an angry reaction can provoke a criminal investigation. Several high profile “hate speech” prosecutions have demonstrated that the loss of speech freedoms will inhibit the ability of Europeans to define their culture according to their own Enlightenment values. Dearborn’s recent pre-emptive legal smackdown of Terry Jones’ demonstration near a mosque shows a similar erosion of vital expressive rights in the United States.This has prompted me ask why rallies similar to the Support Denmark campaign aren't being organized to help Europe. Let's also recall that France gave America the Statue of Liberty, and if we don't come to their aid, for example, we've betrayed the very country that gave America a symbol of freedom, one that the al-Qaeda was plotting to destroy among several targets a decade ago.
If we don't defend the country that donated one of America's most important monuments, we'll have failed to defend freedom domestically too. That's why it's time for freedom-loving Americans to start coming in defense of France, to name but one place where Islam is menacing. And it can be done by forming a rally calling for European political bodies to start fixing their own very flawed law systems.
And yes, Michigan too is surely the area in America most requiring of our concern.
