  Mark Steyn - DR Deadline September 11

Canadian Free Speech activist, publisher and writer Mark Steyn visited Denmark, to receive the Sappho Prize for Free Speech, and Dkr. 20,000 for his activities as an advocate for free speech.

In the end of the seven minute interview, Steyn mentions the obvious but forbidden notion:

TV Host Kurt Strand: Why isn't the European Culture strong enough to defend [itself against] this.

Mark Steyn: I think, since the Second World War, and even since the First World War, European elites have not believed in themselves or their own people.

They drew the wrong conclusion; they thought it meant rejecting nationalism, rejecting national identity, rejecting your own cultural inheritance.

And there's a huge hole in the heart .. where European Identity ought to be.

A young municipal representative, David von Arnold Antoni, of the party Sweden Democrats in Malmö was kidnapped yesterday night by two arabic speaking youths. They forced him to let them in to his apartment. Where they tortured him, beat him and abused him for twenty minutes. They also CUT out a SWASTIKA in his forehead with a knife. Before they left they also stole his computer and money. All this because David is a strong guy who dares to criticise islam.
