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