The insanity of multiculturalism as it’s practiced in Europe, expressed more eloquently and succinctly than any statesman. For a deep dive into freedom of ¬†expression’s foes, I would suggest reading Frankie Boyle’s essay on offense and free speech. Although not touching directly upon the nature of the threat posed to the European people and culture, it does highlight the chilling effect of trying to universalize your personal preferences/dogmas, regardless of how obscurantist and retrograde they might be.

As the great iconoclast Salman Rushdie asked,

What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.
