In the debate on Slugger the Jyllands-Posten has been described as “a right-wing Danish newspaper”. To my knowledge, it is simply the paper of choice of most Danes in Jutland. Having only a rudimentary grasp of Danish, I cannot comment further on its actual content. I do know that despite living in a small ‘c’ conservative society, most Danes are culturally well disposed to engage with new ideas. Ian Jack, editor of Granta magazine reckons that the Danish cultural editor had no idea what kind of touch paper he set alight. In the same journal, Salil Tripathi argues that freedom of expression is not simply a European/Enlightenment thing.
