...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.


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.

"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 guess that's why I have a problem with the "left". They too seem to hate America.

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).
