FRIDAY DANEBROGGING….I fully realize that I should be taking this more seriously ? it involves issues of free speech, national sovereignty, gratuitous religious insults, Islamic radicalism, etc. etc. ? but it’s hard. I mean, just look at whose flag they’re burning in the Middle East right now: Denmark’s.
Cuddly little Denmark! Home of Hans Christian Andersen, delicious pastry, and tasteful furniture. Home of Tivoli and the Little Mermaid. Denmark!
If there’s a lesson to be learned here ? and I assure you there won’t be ? it’s that Arabs rather obviously don’t hate America any more than any other country. We just provide them with more opportunity to show it. If the Danes would just step up to the plate more often, maybe we could sneak our troops home from Iraq and no one would notice.
