What They Say

Jihadists are letting us know how they feel. Michelle Malkin has a stunning photographic line-up of protesters and placards in London. Here are some of the slogans: "Butcher Those Who Mock Islam"; "Exterminate Those Who Mock Islam"; "Be Prepared for the Real Holocaust". And so on. And these people have a right to say these things - the very right they are trying to deny others with the threat of violence. The only word that describes these people, taking to the streets and threatening the lives and security of people who exercize freedom of speech, is an obvious one: brownshirts. There is no compromise with them. And no way to appease them short of surrendering the bedrock of our civilization.
