Mike, are you sure that there is no Free Speech in The Netherlands? That the written Press is censored? Right there in Europe?

I saw on the news yesterday that the Netherlands does not have a 1st amendment (right to free speech) so not every western country gives this right to it's people. I don't know which country you speak of but in the USA the laws are there to protect you. That doesn't mean corrupt people won't threaten harm, but that is human nature and no law will stop that.

If the host removed the photo because he was in fear of consequences then I understand. If it continues to be an issue he might need to reconsider his challenges.
It's easier to ask for forgiveness then to ask for permission.

I am not sure. I saw somewone who claimed to be an elected politician that said they do not have the first amendment and he was put on trial for saying something that might have been seen as anti Muslim. My only point was for people not to assume what the laws in other countries are.
