The president of the Free Speech Society in Denmark recently rather freely expressed his views on Muslims. Lars Hedegaard in an interview with the Snappen website let it all hang out as far as Muslims were concerned. “When a Muslim rapes a woman, it is his right to do it. Whenever it is prudent for a Muslim to hide his true intentions by trying to make a false oath on his own or in Islam’s service then it is OK to do it.” The Free Press Society’s board supports Hedegaard’s comments although not necessarily agreeing with them 100%. Oh, that makes it OK, but exactly which of his comments do they fine offensive? Board member Jett Peianer Dali said his organization “actually needs a president who can bulldoze his way through things a bit.”
One can only wonder if the Free Press Society would welcome a president who attacks gays and lesbians as well as urging restrictions on free speech. His comments have nothing to do with free speech, they are vitriolic and hateful without any foundation in reality or fact.
