Free Speech, back in 1938



RS points us to an interesting piece of information dug up by Lawrence of Cyberia, who found the following choice quote in a 1938 edition of Jyllands Posten, the Danish newspaper which published the controversial Muhammed cartoons:

"You have to admit Germany its clear right to rid itself of its Jews. But one must insist that it happens in a decent manner."

To put these words in some sort of context, they were published in an editorial commenting on the events of Kristallnacht.

As RS puts it, you wonder "what Little Green Footballs and Jyllands-Posten’s other Jewish supporters would make of the newspaper’s support for Hitler’s policy of ridding Germany (and the world) of Jews?"

And now onto something relevant --

Newsflash: Holocaust no longer relevant; Free speech of Danish newspapers no longer relevant!

Thank goodness we have the lgfers to remind us what is relevant: a moooslim who "tried to" go on a killing spree.

Has anyone checked if those Columbine kids were moooslim? I think there's an animated gif angle here.

"tried to go on a killing spree"

Now I've heard of people going on a killing spree, but trying?

Why not buy a gun if you are serious?
