Dutch News Report On The Prosecution of Geert Wilders

Listen to the female government official interviewed in the middle of this report. She actually say, it is ok for Wilders to have these opinions, "but we do not like this in our country."

She backs up the "we" by making a distinction between the political powers and the social powers in the country.

Clearly, she is saying that the political powers intend to silence the social powers, or in other words, the people.

This is an admission that, in the Netherlands, the government rules, not the people.

Sick. As Pat Condell (PC) says - shame on the Netherlands.

Thinking with our heads jammed up our nether regions perhaps?

Pastorius,

Even if the Jihadists don't take over Europe, judging by this video, they are already on their way to dictatorship regardless. If not Islam-o-fascist, than Eurofascist. I really hope Wilders wins this thing.

Pastorius,

Its not even the fact that the government can do things that people don't like and get away with it, its the silencing of people who peacefully disagree with them that is scary. Remember that even America is not a pure democracy and for good reason. The people are not supposed to be able to amend the constitution by a simply majority and the courts are supposed to overthrow laws that violate the constitution regardless of the majorities views. However they are not supposed to be activists and over throw laws just because they don't like them. But this is different. I don't know about the Netherlands, but here in America we have the first amendment. That woman probably doesn't even realize how disturbing the claim that the government has the right to silence those it disagrees with is.

ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Lord Ahmed threatens Parliament into submission.

It appears that a member of the House of Lords had invited the Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, to a private meeting in the Palace of Westminster. She had intended to invite her colleagues in the Lords to a private viewing of his ‘documentary’ Fitna, followed by discussion and debate in true parliamentary fashion.

But no sooner had the unsuspecting baroness sent out her invitations, Lord Ahmed raised hell. It is reported that he ‘threatened to mobilise 10,000 Muslims to prevent Mr Wilders from entering the House and threatened to take the colleague who was organising the event to court’.

And so Fitna has been cancelled: it shall not now be screened in the House of Lords on 29th January.

The Pakistani Press is jubliant, and Lord Ahmed is praising Allah for delivering ‘a victory for the Muslim community’.

Lord Ahmed previously achieved fame as a fatwa-facilitator for the Iranian theocracy:

Anonymous, thanks.

We actually posted that story two days ago. We're fast, aren't we?

Damien,
You are right, I think. I don't believe that woman has any idea how sick her ideology is.

She's probably one of those motherly types who just wants everyone to be nice and get along.

Women like her are an argument for why women are dangerous in government. Too much emphasis on feelings and not enough on reason.

And, of course, there are plenty of men like her. However, I would say that a good deal of those men were raised by single mothers who thought like her.

Anonymous,

We really have to support Wilders!

As far as I know there has only been one other case like this, and that was Nick Griffen, where he faced seven years for saying that Islam was evil.

I do not have to tell you that he had far less support than what Geert now has, for very obvious reasons.

I followed the case very closely, and he was able to be acquitted, after two trails, because the Koran supported his claim.

Luckily for him there where no muslims on the jury.

So I am optimistic that Geert will walk, and come out the winner.

shiva,

I hope you're right.

Shiva,
Geert Wilders was acquited as he should have been.

Wow, that was fast! where did you hear about his acquittal?

Pastorius said...

I'm sorry, I meant to say Nick Griffin was aquited.

Pastorius,

Darn it!
