...and now we know who the pig is...

By now, most people know of the "fake cartoons" the Danish imams used to incite anger in the ME during their tour there in December, 2005. Now Neander News has found out where one of them is from (hat tip: Mike H., comment no. 2):

Do these two photos look similiar?




They should because they are the same! No, not a satire of Mohammed nor any other sacred Islamic figure but a photo of Jacques Barrot, a pig squealing contestant at the French Pig-Squealing Championships in Trie-sur-Baise’s annual festival. NeanderNews discovered this photo, taken by
Bob Edme of AP, posted on an August 15, 2005 AP story seen here on MSNBC’s website.

UPDATE:

Jyllands-Posten, like Neander News, ran with the story that the above person is Jacques Barrot. That is not true, though: Jacques Barrot is the French EU-commisioner. The real name is Jacques Marrot, a local mechanic.

Hi there, I got my delivery in the mail today. All kinds of fun treats from Denmark:>) The cook book looks really interesting. What a beautiful country Denmark is. You must be quite sad seeing it overrun by people who are not Danish and have no desire to be Danish. In America I think it's somewhat different because we're a nation of immigrants. But still, I have a problem with people not wanting to be American, valuing their home country more than America. I guess that's why I have a problem with the "left". They too seem to hate America. Sorry, I just felt like rambling on. If I wasn't a Christian, I'm sure I would be a fascist.

Hey, more info about these LYING IMMAMS

http://michellemalkin.com/archives/004505.htm

In addition to the fake drawings and photos and the other lies included in the Danish imams' propaganda pamphlet posted over at The Counterterrorism Blog, my reader reports that Danish radio has enumerated additional falsehoods.

The imams reportedly spread lies that the Jyllands-Posten had 120 cartoons, not 12, and that the paper was owned by the government. (There are no state-run newspapers in Denmark.) In addition, the imams reportedly claimed that the Danish government would censor the Koran, burn the Koran, and that Danes were planning to make a blasphemous movie about Mohammed. (Brussels Journal and Jyllands-Posten had initial reports on these lies. See here and here.)

Here's an interesting video clip about the interview on DR1 or DR2:

Hope this works.

"You must be quite sad seeing it overrun by people who are not Danish and have no desire to be Danish."

The Danes did a bit of over running in the olden times themselves. Compared to that, these islamofascists are moronic amateurs. However, that doesn't stop me from saying that if you come to another country, burn flags, cause trouble, act like fascists you should be expelled.

Let's see how they like living (again) in Palestine, Iran, or Syria. Methinks if they have a demonstration in Syria they'll be lucky to have much of a life afterward. Send them back!

If you want to force your nasty little religion on people then out you go!

Funny (well....not that funny, actually) thing is, that when Danes were invading and settling in England by force, it ended in a native reaction, a "night of the long knives" with thousands of Danes being massacred in the night.

One church in England still has the door on which one Dane was nailed alive.

I don't think we should compare what's happened a thousand years ago to what's going on here and now. Heck, I don't even think we should hold the deeds of 60 years ago as comparison. I don't hold anything against the Germans or Japanese for what happened 60 years ago. I wasn't even alive then.

We live in a world where information is readily available to everyone. We know about other cultures and people and their value. But let them stay in their own countries, or adapt and become like their new culture. When I travel to Italy, I want to see and experience Italians. Same with all of Europe. Each country is unique, valuable and interesting. I hate to see all that beauty disappear into a bland gray of nothingness.

I don't know why the "left" wants to see everything bland, boring and the same. We experience that to some degree here in the US.

I guess that's why when I travel I like to drive through the country. I think you really get to see the real people of any country in small towns, roadside cafes, and even gas stations.

renwaa: Good point about the lies.

It is looking more and more like the Great Cartoon Jihad is a hoax.

Now, thanks to the Sandmonkey and Freedom for Egyptians, we also know that the pictures were published in Egypt in October to the resounding yawns of Egyptians. NO ONE CARED!

This entire episode has been ginned up by those lying Imams. I would like to see them arrested for inciting violence.

And it would be great if Interpol or some other agency could find out who is pulling the puppet strings of those lying imams.

This entire thing was a hoax that was orchestrated for a reason. It would be nice to know exactly what that reason is. There is a lot of speculation about it on the Net (the fact that Denmark is going to be in the lead when the Iranian nuclear case comes up for consideration, and a few other "coincidences"), but it would be nice to know for sure :).

That sounds vaguely familiar to the polarized, inflammatory rhetoric of those who would censure the media. Of course, I'm sure every "good person" in Europe and America thinks exactly like you.

Plurality of opinion is the whole point for resisting censorship of western media. That means opinions are not the enemy, whether "right", "left" or somewhere in the middle (most of us).
