Remember the shoes? Well, now a designer of jeans is getting in on the act. According to Opinion Journal, Bjorn Atldax — a Swedish designer — has turned out a special line of anti-Christian denims:
|Mr. Atldax has added a Satanic logo--with a cross turned upside down on the forehead of a skull--to his product specifically to make Christians angry, he recently told the Religion News Service. "I think organized religion is not good for the society," he explained.|
Opinion Journal continues
|The jeans have proved so popular with Swedish youth that Mr. Atldax has announced plans "to make something anti-Hindu because I think its caste system is awful." But he is not considering any anti-Islamic designs because, he observed, "there are already a lot of anti-Islamic sentiments."...|
For one thing precisely which subset of “Swedish youth” are making these jeans so popular? Are they anything like the “French youth” who like to set cars on fire? Any similarities there?
And, of course, making fun of the Hindus is safe. How many militant Hindus do you suppose reside in Sweden?
As for his lame excuse about not making any anti-Islam jeans? That explanation is so transparent you could use it for plastic wrap. Mr. Atldax doesn’t want to get vanGoghed, that’s all. If he dared to “design” his Eurotrash jeans depicting anything vaguely disrespectful toward Islam, he’d would have his throat cut in a Muslim minute.
As Caribpundit notes:
|By his willingness to offend Christians and Hindus, and his hands off attitude to Islam, Atldax is proving himself to be very European. Would the last courageous man in Europe turn the lights out when he leaves [?].|
Thanks to Caribpundit for the new verb: “to be vangoghed.” The murderous actions of Muslims force us to create neologisms to describe their bloody behavior. It is perhaps a sign of our resiliency that we manage to be that creative.
