In America Geert Wilders is often vilified as a racist by Leftists. Remarkably I have even heard the “Right Wing extremist racist” denunciation from a few fellow Conservatives. This is the case with some Conservatives that I follow in reading their opinions.
Many of you know who Geert Wilders is. The few that do not know who Wilders is should know he is the Dutch politician that put together the movie short known as Fitna. Wilders’ Fitna is an exposé of the ugly violent nature of Islam that most Muslims refuse to admit is in their Quran, Hadith and Sira.
Fitna and some of the speeches delivered by Wilders hit the European concepts of political correctness, multiculturalism and diversity right smack in the groin. The Leftists of Europe and the Muslims of Europe (which are more radicalized than many would dare to comment on) went in violent seizures that someone would dare speak out against people that are divergent from Western Culture.
Complaints of hate-speech were leveled against Geert Wilders. Free Speech is not an absolute thing in Europe. If your conscience and common sense demonstrate that something is very wrong to be accepted politically or religiously and you speak your mind, in Europe you can be fined or jailed or both. We cannot be insulting those Muslim immigrants or second generation Muslim citizens by speaking the truth about the dark side of Islam.
Wilders decided to take a stand for Liberty which is a concept that is increasingly diluted when it comes to Western Cultural expression. However, hate-speech is rampant among Muslim inhabitants of Europe toward we kafir who do not believe in Mohammed or his deity Allah. Muslim speakers of hate are doing more than saying their way of life is correct and that the Secularists, Christians and Leftists is a corrupt incorrectness. The European double standard on who is allowed to speak freely and who is not allowed to speak freely is crazy-nuts.
HERE IS THE THING. GEERT WILDERS HAS BEEN ACQUITTED IN THE DUTCH JUDICIAL SYSTEM!
Wilders’ acquittal is a reversal of the typical trend of punishing Europe’s Westerners for speaking their mind.
Robert Spencer writes about Wilders’ acquittal with a reminder that the judicial victory is only a dent in Europe’s present system of Rights and Liberty. Let us all pray the Wilders’ acquittal is a judicial precedent in Europe that allows Western Culture to be exterminated by a foreign violent Islamic culture.
