“A right-wing lawmaker should be prosecuted for inciting racial hatred with anti-Islamic statements that include calling the Koran a ‘fascist book,’ a Dutch court ruled Wednesday.”
Because the best way to demonstrate that the Koran is not a “fascist book” is to promote fascism in the name of the Koran.
Unfortunately, and hypocritically, the lawmaker in question “called for a ban on the Koran ‘the same way we ban “Mein Kampf”‘.” Someone who wants to censor the Koran (or Hitler’s screed) can hardly complain when somebody wants to censor him.
If the West loses free speech, it loses itself. There is no more important political issue than maintaining free speech, no matter who finds it offensive.
