    Denmark jails 'racist' pizza man

    A Danish pizzeria owner has gone to jail for refusing to pay a fine imposed after he barred German and French customers from his restaurant.

    Aage Bjerre acted in protest against the French and German governments' opposition to the US-led war in Iraq.

    He will now serve an eight-day sentence at a minimum security prison, the Associated Press reports.

    "I'm doing it to show my sympathy with the United States," he said. He refused to pay a 5,000-kroner (£461;$800) fine.

    In June 2003 a Danish court convicted of him of racial discrimination.

    The 46-year-old was forced to sell his pizzeria on the western island of Fanoe after repeated vandalism and a plunge in sales.

    In February 2003 he had put up signs at his pizzeria with bars through the images of people coloured in the French and German flags.

    He also reprinted his menus without German translations.

    The island is a popular spot with tourists from neighbouring Germany, but there are few French visitors to Fanoe, which has a year-round population of 3,300.

    He deserved it. Make sure he doesn't get raped while in there.

    I hope they don't put panties on his head. That would be outrageous and send the liberals in the US into an uproar.

    I love this guy! He even has his own website:

    Aages Pizza

    Welcome

    After my boycott of German and French patrons, I have been forced to close down my business on Fanoe, and I am now trying to start Aages Pizza as a internet store/business.

    On this website you can read more about following: My boycott of Germans and French, the reason why I changed my businessplan, a few words about myself, my futureplans, upcoming products and items you already can buy.

    Homosexual marriage (I'm against...)

    A marriage is between a man and a woman who love each other and has decide to start a family with children.
    Homosexual people must understand that here is something they can not be a part of.
    Children have some rights... A FATHER and a MOTHER...

    What will the next be if homosexual can getting married:
    A man and his brother/sister???
    A man and his dog, cow etc.???
    A man and a child???
    A man and his car???... Hey, can I use your wife... Yes, it is the white BMW outside... Oh no, a german vife.

    And what about if a homosexual will be a President... A President and the first man... Uhhhh...

    No, if homosexual will ask God about marriage they should go to the church and say a prayer... Dear God, make me normal.

    How is banning French and German customers "racist"? Yes it's discrimanatory, but based on nationality, NOT race. Why can't they just say that instead?

    I think it's very much like the Italian one,
    but instead of tomato, it's seaweed, and
    toppings would be herring, whale meatballs,
    etc.
    Yum!

    Ok... obviously the arrest of this freedom fighter is just an italian conspiracy to prevent danish pizza from conquering the world.

    Ian, does it comfort you a bit to know that he would have faced jail also if he decided to put a "no americans allowed" sign near the "no dogs allowed"?

    This guy probably needs to relocate. I think Arkansas is looking for a new pizza place.

    It must be reassuring to Ian to know that tortured logic and dumb********ery knows no borders.

    Ian loves the guy because homophobes are, more often than not, repressed homosexuals.
