• Okay, this is very, very bad

    I’ve been asked about my views on Geert Wilders before now, and I have typically held my tongue, because I wasn’t sure what to think.  In effect, I held out hope that Wilders might be the spearhead of a classical liberal resistance to both Islamic Jihad and Native European fascism.  I was very impressed by his defences of Israel and his statement that he would no way go along with the likes of Haider and Le Pen.

    Well, that’s no longer true. Wilders has buried the hatchet, and is now going along with H.C. Strache (Freedom Party of Austria) and Jean Marie-LePen (National Front of France).

    Let me say at the outset that I am well aware that Wilders has had to put up with stuff no one should have to for their opinions; everything from living under permanent security, to prosecution, to being kept out of the UK while creeps like Abu Qutada is let in, to having to deal with seeing Fitna banned while “The Assassination of Geert Wilders” is allowed to play freely.

    None of that makes this okay.  None of that makes either the FPO or the Front National nice.  I suppose I can hope that Wilders has either been suckered by their new image, or that he is hoping they may be reformed.

    But honestly, I feel despair setting in.   This is the final product of the mainstream’s cowardice.   In Europe now, we have a situation where if you try to be a liberal opponent of Islamic aggression you are either assassinated (Pim Fortuyn), exiled (Ayaan Hirsi Ali), or driven to the far right (Wilders).

    If I believed in Him, I would say: God help us all.

      Political correctness has driven us to the point that we have to hear the truth from the fascists. This is just sad.

      Is there an English article equiv? What did you think of his $1000 burqua tax and Koran banning proposals? Is this and paying Moslems to leave the country, what’s required at a practical level?

        Use google Chrome to translate. I hadn’t heard about his burka tax, and from reading the actual paper (I can work out Dutch, thanks to my German), I thought it was a clever way of making a point about free speech. The Dutch government bans all sorts of ‘hate’ speech, including Mein Kampf. Well, if you’re going to ban one book full of war and violent antisemitism… The Hitch pointed the same thing out in his defence of free speech which you can watch here:

        The practical measures I support I’ve outlined in the other post.

          Ta. Didn’t realise the context of the Koran thing. I recall the drama here in Australia when he was to visit, venue after venue pulled out. I think in the end it became a secret known only to registrants.

          Meanwhile we famously had a Moslem leader compare women to raw meat which if left uncovered would of course be eaten “by dogs”.

          As you can tell, I working my way through this topic before drawing a firm position. Thanks for the feedback.

            No worries; I held my tongue for a long while, while I was accumulating data.

      Seeing them joining forces is some of the best news I read in a very long time. Let’s hope islam will soon be crushed in Europe.

      • ThePrussian

        May I remind you that the last FPO’s leader sought aid from Gaddafi and Saddam? May I further remind you that said former leader is on record defending the SS? May I finally ask you what sort of Europe will be left if this kind of candidate is in the ascendancy?
