“I am guilty of breaking law which forbids free speech” – Danish MP

Multiculturalism is costing Europe its right to free speech, says Danish MP Jesper Langballe, who was convicted for making an anti-Muslim hate speech.

Langballe says Denmark has fostered a special culture of feeling offended.

“A lot of people in Denmark – first of all Muslims, but also many left-wing people – see feeling offended as an art. The legal system shouldn’t care about people feeling offended, but should ask instead: Are they really offended? Is it true what those men say?”

He added that the law on hate speech that he was convicted of breaking is actually the main problem.
