Any gamers out there (RPG, ect.) as well as sci-fi and fantasy fans, should know that dwarves are supposed to be rather stoic. Thoughtful, if you will. Taking great lenths of time to ponder a question or situation, but ultimately making the right choice.
What are the chances that actors who play dwarves are the same way?
Pointing a finger at the media, Rhys-Davies (who plays Gimli the Dwarf if LOTR. RD) went on, “What is unconscionable is that too many of your fellow journalists do not understand how precarious Western civilization is, and what a jewel it is… The abolition of slavery comes from Western democracy. True democracy comes from our Greco-Judeo-Christian Western experience. If we lose these things, then this is a catastrophe for the world.”
Looking at the lone female journalist at the table, Rhys-Davies said pointedly, “You should not be in this room [according to Muslim custom]. Because your husband or your father or your husband is not here to guide you. You could only be here in this room with these strange men for immoral purposes.”
“There is a change happening in the very complexion of Western civilization in Europe that we should think about at least and argue about. If it just means the replacement of one genetic stock with another genetic stock, that doesn’t matter too much. But if it involves the replacement of Western civilization with a different civilization with different cultural values, then it is something we really ought to discuss — because, [hang it all], I am for dead-white-male culture!”
Oh yeah. He just made up for Viggio Mortensen in spades.
