Geert Wilders has had some recognition in the U.S., mostly due to the Dutch politician’s appearances on television.
But in the Netherlands Wilders is the leader of the Party for Freedom, the largest opposition party to Holland’s insane pro-Islamic immigration policies.
Which is how the Dutch conservative landed himself before a court that eventually found him guilty of — wait for it — asking his supporters whether they wanted “more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands.”
Watch the first 30 seconds of Wilders’ post-conviction video to see just how scary political correctness can become when the wrong people are in power.
(AP) – A Dutch court convicted populist anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders of inciting discrimination Friday at the end of a trial he branded a politically motivated “charade” that endangered freedom of speech.
Presiding Judge Hendrik Steenhuis said the court would not impose a sentence because the conviction was punishment enough for a democratically elected lawmaker. Prosecutors had asked judges to fine him 5,000 euros ($5,300).
In a tweet, Wilders called the verdicts “madness” and said that he had been convicted by three judges who hated his Party for Freedom…
“Freedom of speech is one of the foundations of our democratic society,” the judge said. But he added: “Freedom of speech can be limited, for example to protect the rights and freedoms of others, and that is what this case is about…” [read it all]
Of course this is the Big Shut-up, the attempted silencing of dissent the Left always gets around to under the guise of human rights. PC policies run amok in the Netherlands have already proved deadly, with murders even being committed by 2nd generation Dutch Muslims.
Like many Americans, the Dutch cannot seem to get their heads around the fact that hatred is intrinsic within the religion itself. Teachings within Islam essentially grant permission for young Muslims to opt toward the most radical form of their faith.
In 2004, Vincent Van Gogh’s grandnephew was brutally murdered by a Muslim citizen who attempted to decapitate the Dutch producer, angered by Van Gogh’s upcoming film exposé on radical Islam.
No doubt to be continued…

What a relief to know nobody can take away our fundamental First Amendment rights, huh?
