Geert Wilders

The anti-Islam Freedom Party of Geert Wilders has made major gains in local elections held in the Netherlands. Taking part in two cities it has become the largest party in Almere and the second largest in The Hague.

The two largest parties in the former coalition government both lost seats on municipal councils. The Labour Party (PvdA), led by Wouter Bos, and the Christian Democrats (CDA), led by now caretaker prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende, paid the price for three years of difficult government

Mr Wilders was visibly buoyed by the results and was characteristically combative saying this was the first step in the upcoming campaign for parliamentary elections.

“The national campaign begins today in Almere and The Hague, tomorrow in all of the Netherlands… On 9 June, we’ll conquer the Netherlands,” said Mr Wilders.

The fall of the Dutch cabinet and the upcoming campaign for parliamentary elections overshadowed Wednesday’s municipal elections in the Netherlands. The actual results for the nearly 400 municipal councils hardly seemed to matter. All interest was focused on the implications for the upcoming parliamentary race.

And even though it only took part in two municipalities it was clear the day’s big winner was the “right-wing populist” party of Geert Wilders.

Opdatering:

Eye on the prize
And, of course, Mr Wilders now has his eye on the larger prize. His Freedom Party has profited more than any other from the fall of the Dutch cabinet ten days ago. The party currently has nine seats in parliament (out of 150).

If voters had elected a new parliament on Wednesday, the Freedom Party would have won between 24 and 27 seats. In one poll, it would be the largest single party. If his party does that well come June, Geert Wilders could become the next prime minister.

Holland: Ytringsfrihedens begravelse

For i medierne har der intet været. Nul, nada, øresønderrivende tavshed.

Holland og demokratiet

Mark Steyn skriver om den forestående retsforfølgelse af Geert Wilders i Holland:

…in the Netherlands and other European countries, the political elite understands that there are frictions between an ever more assertive Muslim population and an ever more resentful “native” working class, but that, with the usual careless confidence of Big Government, it had concluded that the answer to this problem was to police and constrain public discourse within ever narrower bounds. (…)And, although Mr. Wilders is invariably described as “far right,” how “far” he is depends on where you’re standing: A poll last month found his party tied for first place in Dutch affections.

In other words, this court is explicitly attempting to criminalize the political opinions of a large swath of the Dutch electorate.

Dutch politics

Holland minder efterhånden om Sverige, hvor der heller ikke er noget problem med främlinger – musser kan kun være enten ofre eller rollemodeller.

Det kan være, at man skulle gøre som Hr. Leth – flytte til den anden ende af kloden – men muhamedanerne er jo overalt.

Ytringsfriheden for retten

Geert Wilders skal i retten for “hate speech” den 20. jan. 2010:

Geert Wilders

Free speech goes on trial in the Netherlands on January 20, when Dutch politician Geert Wilders appears before the Amsterdam District Court on charges of having “intentionally offended a group of people, i.e. Muslims, based on their religion,” as well as having incited to hatred and discrimination.

What did Wilders do to warrant such charges? He told the truth about the global jihad and Islamic supremacism, and their roots in Islamic texts and teachings, in his film Fitna and elsewhere. But nowadays truth-telling is at such a premium that those who still dare to engage in it are threatened, harassed and prosecuted.

But Wilders is defiant: “On the 20th of January 2010, a political trial will start. I am being prosecuted for my political convictions. The freedom of speech is on the verge of collapsing. If a politician is not allowed to criticise an ideology anymore, this means that we are lost, and it will lead to the end of our freedom. However I remain combative: I am convinced that I will be acquitted.”

En kommentar om Geert Wilders – Helle Merete Brix


Geert Wilders

Geert Wilders gæstede os første gang i Trykkefrihedsselskabet i 2008, og det første glimt jeg fik af ham var, da han kom op af den brede trappe i Folketinget. En dansk politiker havde arrangeret et frokostselskab for Wilders og en lille, udvalgt gruppe. Jeg var ikke inviteret med, da jeg åbenbart ikke var vurderet til at være betydningsfuld nok. Det var jeg i første omgang en smule forbitret over. For hvem vil ikke gerne føle sig betydningsfuld? Men jeg tyggede på det og ræsonnerede så, at måske har Suzanne Brøgger ret. Hun skrev engang, at der intet er så kedsommeligt som et selskab af store ånder – man mangler uvilkårligt altid en lokumsrenser.

Det var altså årsagen til, at jeg stod – ikke med hovedet i lokumstønden – men i sodavandssalget, i stedet for at udgøre en del af frokostfølget, da Wilders kom op ad den brede trappe i Folketinget. Fra boden, hvor jeg sammen med vores søde hjælpere solgte vand og bøger, kunne jeg se ham sammen med de livvagter, der i årevis har været en nødvendig del af hans liv. Og  hvad tænkte jeg egentlig? Der er noget særligt ved den store trappe. Så noget tænker man.

Geert Wilders får Rønn-Hornbech til at ryste i trusserne

Det ville have været hylende grinagtigt, hvis det ikke lige var så tragisk. Birte Rønn-Hornbech er så bange for Geert Wilders, at hun udskyder en konference om ytringsfrihed (!!!), så ham grimme Geert ikke skal komme her og bruge sin ytringsfrihed til at fortælle, hvor groteske forholdene i Holland er.

Ny minister, tak!

Fra 180Grader:

Birthe Rønn udskyder konference om ytringsfrihed
Udenrigsministeriet frygter, at et senere besøg i efteråret af den hollandske politiker og islamkritiker Geert Wilders vil spolere klimakonferencen i København i december.

Integrationsminister Birthe Rønn Hornbech har ifølge Berlingske Tidende sendt et brev ud, hvor hun udskyder den danske konference om ytringsfrihed og antiradikalisering fra juni til til efteråret.

“På trods af det intense arbejde og sonderinger er tiden nu så fremskreden, at det vil ikke være praktisk muligt at afholde konferencen inden sommerferien,” skriver Hornbech i brevet.

Udskydelsen af konferencen huer ifølge Berlingske Tidende ikke Udenrigsministeriet. Årsagen er, at den hollandske politiker og islamkritiker Geert Wilders muligvis skal deltage i konferencen, og at det ifølge Udenrigsministeriet kan spolere klimakonferencen til december.

Hvis Wilders dukker op til efteråret, vil de muslimske lande endnu engang få bekræftet indtrykket af Danmark som et land, der er islam fjendtligt sindet, og det kan betyde, at nogle lande vil boykotte klimakonferencen eller på anden måde spolere den, lyder analysen.
