In defence of Geert Wilders

The Dutch parliamentarian and filmmaker Geert Wilders is now facing a possibly protracted legal fight after a Dutch court ordered his criminal prosecution.

Wilders, you’ll remember, made the short film Fitna, which last July seemed to get the all-clear from the Dutch prosecution department. Well, you can make up your own mind, because we’re embedding it again at the bottom of this post.

Wilders, who is also leader of the Freedom Party (PVV), is being told that his statements – written, spoken and filmed – regarding Islam are “insulting”, and the court has declared that they “substantially harm the religious esteem” of Muslims.

Well poor ickle hard-done-to Muslims! Did they have their itty-bitty esteemy-weemy substantially harmed, then, by a movie that points to the worst parts of their hideous scriptures?

Anyway, an international campaign has now been launched, and you can read about it on a site that we’ve just added to our sidebar, that of the International Free Press Society (IFPS). Check it out. It highlights how our words are being censored by those who are happy to let Islamisation continue to creep into our Western way of life.

On this page, you can read about its Defend Geert Wilders campaign, and maybe help it along.

It also gives an account of the latest threat to Wilders, and includes his words, “If I have to stand trial, I will not stand trial alone, but also with the hundreds of thousands of Dutch people who reject the Islamization of The Netherlands.”

In the society’s own words:

He will also stand trial with those in The Netherlands and beyond who reject government prosecutions of free speech. In recognition of this dire situation, the IFPS immediately calls on every supporter of free speech to come to the aid of Geert Wilders. To assist in this effort, the IFPS has launched an international campaign in defense of Geert Wilders and his freedom of speech.

Here, again, is the video:

FREE Partij voor de Vrijheid! The Koran shouldn't be banned. Mein Kampf isn't a 'Holy Book', but it shouldn't be banned either, but you should be able to criticize it and the idiots who agree with it.

As many sane people know, Geert Wilders is NO racist. He is simply against out-of-control immigration; and against immigrants who won't assimilate; and the ones who beat Gays and rape non-Muslim women for not being covered up. He is also very much against the ones who kill their own daughters and sisters for their 'family honor'.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
don't criticize religions

just use Christian words
substitute for Islam's words

.
here's an absurd thought -
your Supreme God knew
Jesus as a pedophile

and a raping terrorist
converting slaves by the sword

Muslims are not a 'race' anyway, they are followers of a religion/ideology and its Sharia Law. Most Muslims aren't even Arabs, which by the way, is also not a 'Race'.

But their duty is, according to their Koran, to spread Sharia law over the whole Earth. It might take 100-200 years, if they succeed.

Is that the kind of world we want for our great-grand childrens' great-grand children? A Taliban Planet? I bet not. Muslims are the biggest victims of Islam. Wilders is NOT against Muslims, he is against Islamic Fundamentalism.

We all should read the Koran, but be careful, for the Koran prohibits non-Muslims from reading it. I wonder why.

This is BIG, this is REAL BIG! SPREAD THE WORD to the world everyone! The EU Mandarins have crossed the line! If this goes to court, how much more of the public will become aware of this tyranny?
All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom.

The Christians and Jews don’t riot when somebody makes fun of Christ or Jews. People must learn to be civilized, and held to account when they are not. Muslims included.

Geert Wilders is a hero spreading the painful truth. He MUST be protected!

here's an absurd thought -
your Supreme God says
Christians are a race

who love the Jewish race
and the peaceful Buddhist race

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
Islam for everyone

submit to glorious life
slavery and servitude

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
outlaw self-defense

exposing violent crimes
shall be deemed hate speech

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
decide to change your race

just simply change religions
your religion is your race
