Free Speech is not negotiable

Gates of Vienna has the full scoop:Mayor Bloomberg Supports Wilders
by Baron Bodissey

Below is an article from today’s De Telegraaf as translated by our Flemish correspondent VH. I have no English-language news item yet on this story:
Bloomberg supports WildersMayor Michael Bloomberg of New York yesterday came to the aid of PVV leader Geert Wilders by making a strong stand for freedom of expression.In the presence of State Secretary Frans Timmermans [PvdA, Socialist, Labour], the Dutch ambassador to the U.S. Renée Jones-Bos and Mayor Cohen of Amsterdam [PvdA, Socialist, Labour], Bloomberg said he was absolutely against any form of restriction on freedom of expression.“Of course I do not appreciate everything I hear. But when you start restricting that, you step on a slippery slope. Before you know it, you can no longer say what you want,” Bloomberg said at the kickoff of NY400, a year of celebrations in which a central theme is the arrival of the ship “Halve Maen” (Half Moon, of the Dutch East India Company) with the explorer Henry Hudson, who founded a settlement on Manhattan.Cross-posted at The International Free Press Society

Great going Baron, I see who constantly gets the scoops on these issues, and it isn’t the funny little man behind the curtain. KGS
