Danish editor slams US ‘political correctness’ on cartoons

The Danish editor who commissioned the Mohammed cartoons that triggered deadly protests a decade ago said Monday the failed attack on a Texas cartoon exhibition won’t change how “politically correct” Americans feel about the drawings.

“The lines have already been drawn in this debate in the US and I do not think events like these can change anything, because people will read their own opinions into it,” Flemming Rose told Jyllands-Posten, where he is currently the foreign editor.

“Those who think you have a right to draw Mohammed if you want, and believe it is an important part of freedom of speech will say: ‘There, you can see that freedom of speech is under threat.'”

“The other wing will say that it is an unnecessary provocation,” he added.

    There are 6,000,000,000 noon-muslims on Earth, they can’t kill us all. Just zero-in Nukes on Mekkah and then warn muslims to clean-up the swamp within 6 month of mekkah becomes a sheet on glass…..medina’s next. I’m fed-up with these savages and their death-cult.
