    Doesn’t do much for Sweden’s image does it?

    Call For Resistance.

    You are a member of a free society,
    having inherited freedom of expression,
    freedom of thought, and freedom of word,

    and yet you sit back with a bemused smile
    on your surprised, peaceful face,
    when a fellow citizen-artist-lecturer
    presents his case of why you are free,
    and what it means to be so,

    when he is suddenly interrupted to silence,
    and physically attacked by ‘certain others’
    from a culture unappreciative of freedom…

    ‘certain others’ living at your society’s largesse…
    ‘certain others’ you met with open arms
    and a welcome to your land of refuge
    from political and religious tyranny…

    ‘certain others’ who now pay you back
    with psychological and physical intimidation,
    and even attacks on your fellow citizens.

    You sit in your chair, paralyzed,
    and hypnotized at the strange proceedings
    taking place in front of your eyes,
    and you do nothing to defend your rights…
    you do nothing to defend his right to express!

    He draws a cartoon of a deranged ‘prophet’-
    he speaks of sanctioned pedophilia-
    he shows a picture of woman, enslaved-
    he caricaturizes the inanities of Islam,

    all to enlighten you and to warn you,
    that unless you stand up to defend the freedom
    for which our precious, secularized Western democracies
    have sacrificed lives down through centuries,
    you will be lulled to sleep and surrender.

    It is the duty of freedom-loving citizens
    to be aware of those ‘certain others’
    who plant themselves in an audience
    only to wait for the moment of attack,
    and you must be aware of the possibility
    that you may be called upon to defend
    that which your fellow freedom-loving
    citizen-artist-lecturer present to you,

    and this means that if you attend
    such a lecture on freedom,
    that you must be ready to physically
    defend his personal safety and integrity,
    and thereby make a statement of your own
    commitment to our principles of freedom.

    Are you ready to make that statement,
    and when the trouble starts in front of you,
    are you ready to commit yourself?

    If those ‘certain others’ see violence
    as a way to force their religious dogma
    on you and your society,
    are you ready to meet force with force,
    and are you ready to stand up for freedom?

    You may say that it is the job of the police
    to protect and serve and prosecute,
    but the police won’t always be present
    when those ‘certain others’ decide to attack,
    and so it is incumbent upon you to be the
    defender, the server, the prosecutor,
    and make the sacrifice for your children.

    If you remain silent and un-protective
    of those who dare speak the case for freedom,
    your children will ask: “And what did you do?”
