The cartoons and the iguana on the wall

Just when you think the unelected governors of the EU-SSR couldn’t excel themselves, along comes this piece of imperial impertinence. The comment below is cross-posted from Samizdata

I have just seen this about the publication of cartoons earlier this month, in Denmark's Jyllands-Posten of the Muslims' prophet, Mohammed. The Dhimmiwatch piece details an attack by an unelected EU commissioner on the elected Danish prime minister who declined to get involved in the controversy, citing the freedom of the press. If I were living in the EU, I would gnaw my own leg off to get out.

Writes Dhimmiwatch: "Franco Frattini, the Deputy EU commissioner for Justice, Freedom, and Security, (oh, pulleeeeeze) denoting the publication of the cartoons as "foolishness and indiscretion" condemned the cartoons which Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rassmussen refused to involve himself in on grounds of freedom of speech and thought.

"Such publications, Frattini emphasized, will serve to radicalism by fomenting hostility against Islam and foreigners. "

This unelected invertebrate has crawled out of his putrid pond to condemn a brave elected leader of a very brave country. He has declared that Mr Rasmussen "used freedom of the press as an excuse". Added this unelected individual, "the media is not free to make a news story out of anything". There is a large iguana who takes the sun on my wall who has more brains in his lizard head than this pre-Ice Age lump of primitive algae and probably has a better developed sense of honour.

Something smells rotten and it certainly isn't in the state of Denmark. If you go to the link, have some tissues handy for wiping the foam off your monitor.

What a scum. The EU is just totaly corupt. The Danish are a good lot in my experence and their PM did the right thing. Why this fool had to get involved I can't see.

Because the EUSSR is all about control. When the Soviet Union was brought down, to the grief of the European socialists, they built another one, closer to home.

These Frattini individual is incensed that a democratically elected prime minister of a sovereign state took a decision without consulting the nomenklatura in Brussels.
