How do you say "coward" in Norwegian?

Ridiculous, right? Reminds me of…the American media. Remember when CNN and the Dallas Morning News did the same thing? I do!

Nothing adds fuel to the fire of the Cartoon Rage like the worldwide media’s Cartoon Dhimmitude.

RedBlueAmerica.com has a package on Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.

Lawhawk takes note of the NYT taking a pass. As expected.

An e-mail from a reader on the other side of the political aisle, but on the same side as the Danes and the Sammenhold coalition:

Hi Ms. Malkin,

First let me say that I am an Obama supporter with liberal/libertarian views on many issues, so I suspect we would disagree on more issues than we would agree. I do want to let you know, however, that you deserve a lot of credit for your efforts in promoting solidarity with Denmark and the Danish newspapers publishing the muhammed cartoons. I am no fan of our current president, but I remember when the cartoon controversy first erupted, I thought to myself, “Well, perhaps Bush and I will be on the same page for once.” Instead he disappointed me again by responding with a weak-kneed and tepid call to respect the religions of others. I expect many on the Democratic side of the aisle would have responded similarly.

In my opinion, no true liberal would ever call for tolerance of a religion in such opposition to free speech, women’s rights, and freedom of and from religion, and in such support of mindless violence. When those cartoons were first published, I wish every American newspaper had reprinted them, and that our president had taken a much firmer stance in support of free speech. If I had owned a Danish flag, it would have flown from my house for that period of time.

So again, I disagree with a lot of what you say, but encourage you to keep up the good work on this issue. You seem to be the strongest voice for this right now. Thanks for keeping it alive.
