Spat Upon and Reviled

The video below shows Tuesday’s attack on Lars Vilks from a vantage point in the middle of the audience. Pay close attention to the behavior of the culture enrichers towards a young man sitting by himself in the audience.

According to the notes accompanying the video:

A public lecture at Uppsala University by Lars Vilks ends in catastrophe as a gang of muslim youngsters attack him.

This is the aftermath of the event, Vilks has just been rushed off stage by his bodyguards and the muslim crowd is extatic.

The guy in white at the end of the clip gets spitted on several times. Twice in this clip alone. This is because he was the only one to react against the muslims, telling them to sit down and calm down.

The significant portion of the video begins at about 2:00:


At the Trykkefrihedsselskabet website, Lars Hedegaard, the President of the Danish Free Press Society, writes about his recent visit with Lars Vilks at the artist’s home in Sweden:

A Visit with a Marked Man

This can’t be it!

After leaving Copenhagen early Saturday morning, traveling north to Elsinore, crossing the ferry to Sweden and continuing north along the coast of Scania, we arrive at a shack that would have caused embarrassment in the hillbilly country of West Virginia or along Tobacco Road.

Can this dilapidated edifice really be the home of the world-famous Swedish artist Lars Vilks — the man whose drawing of a bewildered prophet in a traffic circle caused so much rage that Jihad Jane wanted to come all the way from America to kill him and long-bearded mullahs to offer $150,000 to anyone who would cut his throat?

But sure enough, we have come to the right place and are soon greeted by Vilks, who has observed our arrival from a distance.

Once the upholders of freedom and Western values used to live in places like Blenheim Castle. Modern-day Churchills have to make due with less, but their courage and achievements in standing up for free speech and all that is right are in no way inferior to those of the great men and women of the past.

A few days prior to our visit, the Free Press Society had put 1000 copies of the Mohound picture up for sale and our small delegation has brought them along for Vilks to number and sign.

Before settling down to the job, the artist tells us that he is in fine spirit. He regrets nothing and the world shall expect no retractions or apologies from him.

Vilks has sensed a change in Swedish society since the Prophet in the Traffic Circle first came out in 2007. To be sure he gets threatening phone calls but tends not to take them seriously. He is still persona non grataamong the Swedish media and intellectual elites, who hate him for having offended tender Muslim sensibilities, but he receives a lot of support from ordinary Swedish citizens.

Read the rest at Trykkefrihedsselskabet.

Paul Weston, it's a pity you didn't get elected. You would have been one of the few politicians I would have really liked to win and you have pretty good company in my preferences. Better luck next time. :)

Still, running in London must have been harder considering the city became minority majority this year. I said before that the lack of Britishness in London gave me a huge disappointment(sort of like how unAmerican the US is). I would have liked to come to study at LSE, but since I don't afford a nice place, I would end up in some slum filled with your replacing populations. This made me remove LSE from my graduate options and it's sad because London would have been my favourite city in the 1950s, probably, despite all the problems you people had. I hope that the British will be able to restore some glory to that city.

To sum it up, we use British textbooks in our English classes - can you remove the horrid propaganda in them? It upsets me to no end to refute it in class. I'm shocked each time I learn more about Western Europeans get taught in schools.

Lars Vilks' regular homepage http://www.vilks.net/ was hacked yesterday, and still is, by Muslim malefactors who claim that:

You Mother f**ker Lars Vilks Still Talking About the Prophet Muhammad We Never
Really Stop Hacking Your Site and I Will Show You How I Can hack your computor.


On his other homepage - which you must visit for all the nice pictures of his various lumber sculptures - Lars Vilks has among other things the following to say:

Tämligen intensivt = Fairly intense

The major affray in Uppsala gave a boost to the events and I have hunted around all day from the one thing to the other. The blog was hacked and according to my webmaster it is not too easy to get in order again. But it will. I would like to extend thanks to all who have given me support - but also to all those who come with a variety of hate mail.

The hatred is the true driving force of the art project, it surely brightens up the situation. An inescapable fact is that my symbolic value for the multitudes who try to drown themselves in the sour wells of offenciveness have increased significantly. Fortunately, my neighbor has a big German Shepherd who is trained as a watchdog.
I may now borrow him as a night watchman. For safety's sake.

Now I look at the world through glasses rapaired with tape.

Our old friend and protagonist Robin_Shadows states somewhere else in cybetspace in a comment:
Of course the Commies and the Muzzies get irritated about Vilks. In their ideology there does not exist individuality or personality. Group-mentality is what counts and nothing else. If you choose to join one of these sects, you have to be a Borg. You will become assimiliated. Resistance is FUTILE! Nobody, however, can be less Borg than Vilks.
Clearly it infuriates them.

With more people in Sweden (Kretinostan) like these individuals there should be a big exodus after the election in September.

Can you imagine how this event would have been portayed in the media if the mob had been white, working class football fans, and instead of chanting the name of a false prophet, they had been chanting the name of their team?
