Buy Danish

As you may know, Islamic leaders are urging their followers to boycott Denmark, because the Danes had the temerity to run political cartoons about Muhammad. American Thinker is urging the opposite of a Danish boycott, asking its readers to Buy Danish (not a hard thing to do, considering Denmark's wonderful food and furniture).

We owe it to ourselves, even more than we owe it to the Danes, to buy Danish products." I'll just add that the Dane's bravery here is entirely consistent with the same bravery they showed during WWII in the face of the Nazis. Talking to Technorati: , , , , ,
