On Thurday December 13th 2012, Danish-Iranian artist Firoozeh Bazrafkan was in the court of Århus, Denmark, suspectet for having violated Article 266b of the Danish penal code, which criminalizes derogative or threatening statements against a variety of minorities. This is a report from her day in court.

On one side stood this statement from Firoozeh, published on her blog in Jyllands-Posten on December 6th 2011:

For I am also deeply convinced that muslim men to a great extent and everywhere in the world both rape, mistreat and kill their daughters. It is my opinion, being an Iranian-born Dane, that we are here facing a defective and inhuman culture – if this can be considered ‘culture’ at all. But one may say, according to my opinion, this is a defective and inhuman culture, whose manual the Quran is even more immoral, objectionable and insane than the manuals of the two other world religions combined. 

In the other side of the courtroom was article 266b of the Danish penal code, represented by the public prosecutor PM:

Any person who publicly or with the intention of dissemination to a wide circle of people makes a statement or imparts other information threatening, insulting or degrading a group of persons on account of their race, colour, national or ethnic origin, belief or sexual orientation, shall be liable to a fine, simple detention or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years. 

As usual, the meeting commenced with some technicalities:

    It would be nice if she were declared innocent, nice but I doubt if it will occur.

    No more Belgian chocolates for me until they come to their senses.

    True evil is not so much in the crime but in the failure to address to it A reported 96% of the honor crimes in the West are carried out by Muslim immigrants. The main reason given: is to prevent them living like Western girls- whom they refer to as “hoes -slags- white or Euro trash” etc. Now if that is that is not racial hatred- what is? The most disturbing and sinister part of all is that in some cases they dump the tortured remains of their victim somewhere unknown and then continue on as if they had done something honorable. This is not how young girls or women are treated in the West or how they want others to be treated regardless of their race, religion etc. They still have standards based upon their Christian heritage and as a result are traumatized by such atrocities. After all If someone can do this to their own flesh and blood- what are they capable of doing to those whom they openly hate?

  4. WLIL says:

    I agree with you Marge72. It had been a trend since time immeorial for those non-whites supremacist, even some noted(intolerant) asian non-moslem personality/leader who misleadingly and degradingly refered to white woman as white trash. It hink it is wrong of non-whites asians, whether they are moslems or not, to refer whites in that degrading manner. Those non-whites asians may have amassed alot of wealth from the West(as a result of the generosity from the West) but those asians, regardless what their religion, have no right to abuse or look down on poor white people.

  5. wlil says:

    While those West continue to do good and continue to lift those asian moslems and aisan non-moslems out of poverty, those asian moslems and asian non-moslems continue to exploit the West and looked down on our Western good nature. those asian moslems and asian non-moslems have bcame too overly arrogant and their abusive nature is certainly incompatible with the Western way of life. It is time the west stop helping those inhumane asians.

  6. Rita says:

    What do we mean by “Asians”? I always think of Chinese/Vietnamese/Singaporians etc. as “Asians” and think they are – on the whole – migrant groups that are beneficial. And in France for example, those who drive the Islamisation and/or the hatred for Whites/Westeners are mainly Arabs.

  7. Richard says:

    Arabs or Arabicized North Africans.

    They are called Asian because that is a non identifying word, it means anyone from the largest continent, welcome to new speak.

  8. Rita says:

    @ Richard: It’s insulting to the real Asians, I think! I think I will to my little contribution to change things by asking this question “Aaaaaasians????” each time I come accross this euphemism!

  9. Richard says:

    Insulting to the other Asians, yes, but Arabia is part of Asia so they are real Asians. Granted most people in the west think of people from the Orient when we think of Asia but from what I understand they get upset if they are called anything besides Asian.

  10. Rita says:

    “…they get upset if they are called anything besides Asian.”

    all the more reason to call the beast by its name ;)

  11. WLIL says:

    Those Vietnamese, Chinese, Singaporeans are Asians too though many of them are not moslems and they do commonly insults the whites too. Not too long ago, a singaporean leader( who are fond of suing people for articles that he don’t agree with and the after all their socalled asian successs), even degradingly refered to the whites as white trash.
    That just proved that asian, whatever religion they are just cannot be trusted. All they want is to hummiliate the West due to some inferiority complex or weakness that come from most asians themselves.

  12. wlil says:

    Too many asians non-moslems do verbalise their hatred towards the West too and subtlely hate the West too.Too many Asians non-moslems have alot in common with Asians moslems in Asian region and therefore it is a fact that asian moslems and asian non-moslems do share alot of thing in common in asia and therefore the West have to confront this unpleasant reality to prevent further damage to the white civilisation. The West have to be wary of Asians, whatever faith they are. I have sufferred alot under asians of various faith nad I don’t want the West to suffer.

  13. WLIL says:

    Even those Chinese or other Asians who have improper superiority complex are fond of referring to other race in a degrading manner. At the end of the day, it is those abusuve Asians who behaved shabbily and disgustingly are the ones that insult themselves.

  14. wlil says:

    Anyway, Asians, whether they are moslem or not are not angels, and are mostly vile whenver they have the upper hand.
    I have been struggling living in mostly unhelpful and brutal Asia. There is nothing to admire in Asia, that is fulll filth, pollution, oppression of the disadvantaged, all the extreme arrogance, extremely inhumane exploitive rich people who depend on slave to enrich them. Imagine that they have to depend on foreign slaves to clean up their mess. Nothing admirable about them.
