Tammy Bruce has some thoughts on the recent sentence a German court passed on a man who was so incensed by the Islamofascist London 7/7 bombing that he decided to…well, he decided to do this:

The 61-year-old man, identified only as Manfred van H., was given a one-year jail sentence, suspended for five years, and ordered to complete 300 hours of community service, a district court in the western German town of Luedinghausen ruled.

Manfred van H. printed out sheets of toilet paper bearing the word “Koran” shortly after a group of Muslims carried out a series of bomb attacks in London in July 2005. He sent the paper to German television stations, magazines and some 15 mosques.

Prosecutors said that in an accompanying letter Manfred van H. called Islam’s holy book a “cookbook for terrorists.”

As Tammy writes:

Uh, yeah. His is an opinion that is based in the facts as he sees them. It’s funny how Germany is obsessed with keeping Nazi theory from re-emerging, and in the process they’re doing exactly what the Nazis did–punish those who do not confirm or dare to challenge the status quo.

Welcome to 1934.

Elsewhere in a Europe that seems obsessed with turning back the clock to the Bad Old Years, a Dutch lawmaker proposes forced abortions to stop “Unwanted Children”:

Alderman Marianne van den Anker of the Leefbaar Rotterdam (LR) party says the forced abortion and contraception would reduce the incidence of child abuse.

Van den Anker has two children and is the official in charge of the city’s health issues. […]

Van den Anker said Antillean teenage mothers, drug addicts and those who are mentally disabled should be forced to have abortions and use contraception if they are having sex.

Nothing like a little eugenics to complete the 1930s picture.
