Statement by Lars Hedegaard on his conviction for “hate speech”

Copenhagen, May 5, 2011

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.

  1. Would my complaint against moslem women who verbally abused me be highlighted or dismissed just because they are moslem women and media tend to paint them as victims rather than abusers?

  2. Imagine how most of us nonbelievers would have a much better quality of life, if we don’t need to waste our time listening to those extremely irrational complaints make by those extremely intolerant moslems.
    Imagine how most of us nonbelievers would have a much less hassle if we don’t have to listen to their islamic self-inflicted nonsense.
    Imagine how most of us nonbelievers would have a better quality of life, if we don’t have to cope with their misrule in their horrible islamic dominated countries.
    We as nonbelievers do not need to waste our time listening to their endless complaints and do not deserved to be harrassed by their too many islamic related problems, when they never give us nonbelievers the same attention to our nonbelievers problems . And when those moslems already gave themselves too many special privileges to abuse us nonbelievers, they have no right to impose their islamic gender related problems or their indecency on us nonbelievers who value decency.
