Dane to Serve 8 Days for Discrimination

Dane to Serve 8 Days for Discrimination

By Associated Press

August 20, 2003, 10:33 AM EDT

COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- A court in western Denmark on Wednesday upheld a sentence against a Danish pizzeria owner who had refused to serve French and German tourists because their governments opposed the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

Denmark's Western High Court upheld a lower court ruling issued two months ago that ordered Aage Bjerre to pay a $780 fine or serve an eight-day prison sentence.

"I will not pay the fine, but I'll do the time instead," Bjerre told The Associated Press. "It's a matter of principle."

Bjerre was fined for refusing to sell pizza to German and French tourists, whom he called "anti-American." Bjerre appealed to the Western High Court but lost.

Bjerre said he lost at least $7,800 because of a drop in business and from vandalism to his shop on Fanoe island in western Denmark. He has received about 300 letters of support from around the world.

Earlier this month, Bjerre sold his pizzeria because police threatened to seize his restaurant permit if the ruling was upheld. But he vowed to pursue his pro-American crusade by selling frozen pizzas on the Internet.

"My home page will say clearly: No pizzas to the Germans or the French," Bjerre said.

Bjerre said he would stop the boycott only "if the governments of France and Germany change their attitude toward the United States and support Washington wholeheartedly."

Fanoe island, 200 miles southwest of the capital, Copenhagen, is a popular spot for visitors from neighboring Germany. Of the approximately 100,000 tourists who come, 60 percent are German. There are few French visitors to the island, which has a year-round population of 3,300.

Well, idiot or no... you have to hand it to the guy for sticking to his ideals.

But, well... Idiot.

NO!!!  Discrimination is bad, period!  That's the point.

You mistakenly think liberals are anti-American, because we try to point out the bad things in American politics (Patriot Act, Rave Act, war on drugs, etc).  We do this because we want the system fixed, not because we want people to be anti-American.  Why is this point so hard to understand???

Do you think people should just ignore what our politicians do as we chant "USA!  USA!"?  :confused:
