Even as he gives a pass to our Blueberry Light 'n Fit Dannon yogurt. Baby shows sammenhold -- the Danish word for solidarity, reports Michelle Malkin -- by going for the jugular of our grilled Havarti and Majestic Danish ham sandwich. Mmmmm. What a delicious way to show support for our freedom-loving Scandinavian friends.
Freedom's Zone [via Michelle Malkin] is encouraging bloggers to help Stand up for Denmark by writing a post on Christopher Hitchens's call for a demonstration at the Embassy of Denmark between noon and 1 p.m. today, February 24. Besides eating for freedom (above), you may want to call and/or email the Danish embassy early and often. Here's the info:
Fear may be cowing the media, but like Brit Hume of Fox News, the gentleladies and gentlemen of the blogosphere aim to be fair, balanced and unafraid. This happens to be our 25th Buy-Danish! Cartoon Wars post, and it won't be our last till the Danish cows come home. We love cream and ice cream, and according to the Mackie's of Scotland ice cream folks, "Danish Jerseys produce the creamiest milk in the world!" Baby and Tiny stand in sammenhold on this one, big time.
Update: Stephen Green has pictures -- Hitch, Sully, Gertrude Himmelfarb's boy Bill, Clifford May with crossed-flags lapel pin [gotta get one of those] and assorted Danish at the rally in front of the Embassy this afternoon. Be sure to catch the signs. Our fave: "Submit to Havarti."
Update II: Blogfriend Martin Lindeskog of EGO is hosting the Carnival of the Recipes with a Danish theme a week from today. That's March 4, Feast day of St. Casimir, Prince of Poland (b. 1458), according to Answers:
When Casimir was thirteen he was offered the throne of Hungary by factions discontented with king Mattias Corvinus. Casimir, who was eager to defend the Cross against the Turks, accepted the call and went to Hungary to receive the crown.
It is an ancient wound. But meanwhile -- like music -- food is the language we all understand, so we invite you to put on your chef's hat and send in your Danish-themed recipes to Martin ASAP.
