Posted on 03/22/2014 4:46:25 PM PDT by Star Traveler
The Hague (AFP) - An unrepentant Geert Wilders fought back Saturday against a storm of protest and an exodus from within his own anti-Muslim party after he vowed "fewer Moroccans" in the Netherlands.
The platinum-haired populist was forced to deny parallels with Nazi leaders after he was widely perceived as having gone too far in his attack on a specific ethnic group on Wednesday.
"I spoke the truth, I'm not sorry and will not apologise for the truth and expressing my political ideals," Wilders told an impromptu press conference on Saturday evening.

Geert Wilders, born 6 September 1963) is a Dutch right-wing politician and the founder and leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid PVV), the fourth-largest political party in the Netherlands.
Wilders is the Parliamentary group leader of his party in the Dutch House of Representatives. In the formation in 2010 of the Rutte cabinet, a minority cabinet of VVD and CDA, he actively participated in the negotiations, resulting in a “support agreement” (gedoogakkoord) between the PVV and these parties, but withdrew his support in April 2012, citing disagreements with the cabinet on proposed budget cuts.
Wilders is best known for his criticism of Islam, summing up his views by saying, “I don’t hate Muslims, I hate Islam”. Wilders’ views regarding Islam have made him a controversial figure in the Netherlands and abroad.
I should also note that Geert Wilders does NOT affiliate himself with others that he considers to be FASCISTS!
“Wilders, who has refused to align himself with European far-right leaders such as Jean-Marie Le Pen and Jörg Haider, views himself as a right-wing liberal and has expressed concern of being “linked with the wrong rightist fascist groups.”
Morocco for the Moroccans
Holland for the Dutch...who have been there 6000 years.
If the specific ethnic group is famous for bloodletting and beheadings, what’s wrong with kicking them out of your country?
FITNA was the film made by Geert Wilders that created a WORLDWIDE FUROR a few years ago ... And all it did was quote the Koran and show some mainstream media news clips - THAT’S ALL,
Fitna is a 2008 short film by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders. Approximately 17 minutes in length, the film attempts to demonstrate that the Qur’an motivates its followers to hate all who violate Islamic teachings. The movie shows selected excerpts from Suras of the Qur’an, interspersed with media clips and newspaper cuttings showing or describing acts of violence and/or hatred by Muslims.
The film argues that Islam encourages among other things acts of terrorism, antisemitism, violence against women, violence and subjugation of infidels and against homosexuals and Islamic universalism. A large part of the film details the influence of Islam on the Netherlands. The film was published on the Internet in 2008.
Shortly before its release, its announcement was suspended from its website by the American provider because of the perceived controversy. It stirred a still continuing debate in the Netherlands as well as abroad, and a criminal prosecution for hate speech.
Moronica for Morons.
Those here who are about as close philosophically to Geert Wilders are Tom Tancredo and Pat Buchanan, both of whom have been marginalized by the leftist lamestream media. And, sad to say, even some Conservatives. John Derbyshire's stance on multiculturalism is also on-target but he's been reduced to irrelevancy by the leftwing attack machine.
Actually Geert Wilders doesn’t advocate kicking them all out of the country — but he certainly does in regards to the criminals. If they commit crimes then they should be deported.
Geert Wilders doesn’t say that they should not live in the Netherlands, but he does say that they have to “assimilate” - learn the language, get jobs, not be on the dole and be law-abiding. If they do that Geert Wilders has no problem with them being in the country.
Pat Buchanan is a closet ANTI-SEMITE and I wouldn’t invite him into my city much less my neighborhood or home!
And Tom is NOTHING like Geert Wilders in regards to Wilders very strong actions against ISLAM and Wilders very strong support for Jews and Israel!
Wilders is right..
Death and destruction seems to follow wherever muslims gather
If you haven’t seen FITNA ... here it is ...
Let’s be sure to give Wilders viewpoint carefully here. I don’t want people misunderstanding his position.
He has stated on MANY INTERVIEWS that he has nothing against Muslims in general and he doesn’t want to kick all Muslims out. He states very clearly that the MAJORITY of Muslims in the West are peaceful and law-abiding and he is not a Muslim hater. He is super clear on this point.
He says he is against the extremists who use Islam for their extremist goals and murder and mayhem and terror. He likens the Koran to Mein Kampf.
So ... please do understand that about Geert Wilders ... :-) ...
linked with the wrong rightist fascist groups.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Fascists are actually liberals gone Utopian.......Nationsl Socialists.
The left has founded and perpetrated the myth that rightists or conservatives are the origin of fascism. Nothing could be further from the truth as this article shows:
Wilder is a nationalist Dutch politician who wants Holland for the Dutch, but he is not a socialist, and therefore NOT a nationalist socialist/fascist.
The main point here that people have to get here is that he is totally against Jean-Marie Le Pen and Jörg Haider who are popular in France and Austria (respectively) and they supposedly fight against Islam.
And if you remember Tommy Robinson of the English Defense League (in the UK) - Wilders wanted nothing to do with them either - even though they constantly protested against Islam there.
I - personally - would not support those people either, or their groups - but would FULLY SUPPORT Geert Wilders!
Haider hasn't been fighting anything lately. He's joined the choir invisible.
His ghost is doing very well ... :-) ...
The Jews seem to exert the same anti-semite rhetoric that the blacks, hispanics, muslims, chinese, do whenever anyone writes or says anything negative about them. Whether it is actual fact or merely an observation and/or inferences of coincidence.
If one cannot discuss jews collectively any more than one cannot discuss blacks, hispanics, or homosexuals without being addressed as a racist, anti-semite, islamophobe, homophobe, etc. then we have lost the ability to speak freely and think clearly.
You don’t have to agree with their assessments, if they are an assessment not a suggestion to kill a specific ethnicity for being ethnic.
The left/communists certainly have no compunction about suggesting that anyone who disagrees with them should be killed for just thinking differently than them.
I don’t always agree with everything I read from Daniel Greenfield either but he is still a vary smart guy, and a gifted writer. I adamantly disagree with almost everything that Thomas Friedman or Paul Krugman writes or thinks...does that make me an anti-semite?
Buchanan is a smart guy, he offers his insights and views for your consideration, not your approval. Take what he writes for what it’s worth. He may very well be wrong on a particular topic but to ostracize him because you disagree with him on a particular subject should not make him a pariah...just wrong. Do we not have the liberty to be wrong about a particular subject?
One more thing here ...
You said ... “Wilder is a nationalist Dutch politician who wants Holland for the Dutch, but he is not a socialist, and therefore NOT a nationalist socialist/fascist.”
Wilders, himself, calls these “rightist groups” ... so that’s the way he views them - even if you see it differently.
He is also totally and fully against any violence or promoting altercations between groups - but says that everything that we do to deal with this issue is to be done lawfully and through the ballot box.
I don’t listen to Jew-haters ... no matter what they say.
so thats the way he views them >>>>>>>>>>>>
Yes I know that, but Wilder is doomed to failure if he does not understand the roots of fascism according to the Churchillian method of historical analysis, for Islamofascists comprise his vociferous opponents. Islamofascism and liberal fascists have united within the so called “modern state.” They must be jointly and severally defeated.Wilder does not know his history or even where he himself has evolved from.He will not succeed or prevail until this ignorance is remedied, for such disseminated knowledge is the only method by which he will gain lasting public support.
I would say he’s doing quite well and is very successful in the political realm. If you compare him, in his country — he’s doing better than ANYONE here in this country in regards to the issue of Islam, no matter WHAT the politicians in this country know about particular words or terms ... :-) ...
As a jew I don’t consider Buchanan an anti-semite. I consider him wrong on the facts nothing more.
Now, if he’s wrong in this particular instance what else has be been wrong about. I recall a stir that Buchanan made some years ago about the US and Japan and WWII. He was wrong on the facts then too.
It makes him stupid to get his facts wrong, just like Friedman is consistently factually wrong and it makes him stupid as well.
Don’t confuse stupid with hatred.
Be fair there are also plenty of Jews that don’t particularly care for Israel.
I’ve seen some Jews exercise a big does of self-hatred - for which I have no intention of psychoanalyzing - but it exists!
I’ve seen some Jews in Israel even go as far as showing support for Iran and meeting with Ahmadinejad (when he was leader). I’ve seen a certain segment of Jews not support the creation of the State of Israel (in 1948) and are against the continuation of Israel as a nation - today.
As I said - I don’t try to psychoanalyze them and figure out why they have such self-hatred and how they could be so wrong.
Fortunately the vast majority of Jews are not that way! But I do run into them from time to time.
I suppose they are anti-Semitic too. Just like the Arabs.
That is what I find odd. There are a great many jews who are Pali sympathizers too.
It is a fair assessment that there are a lot of jews in government positions of influence, and in the lobbying world as well. Buchanan’s joke (and yes it was a joke) about DC being Israeli-occupied terrotory has some basis in fact although it appears now that most of them are anti- israel
Buchanan is both smart and stupid at the same time. He makes crass jokes and says things than are not said in polite company. But he has some valuable insights sometimes and given his age now...I tend to give him a wide berth.
Wilders is a hero, one of the few the West has these days.
That’s what is so frustrating sometimes, he can be brilliant at times.
You said ... “I suppose they are anti-Semitic too. Just like the Arabs.”
I wouldn’t call them anti-Semitic - but people who have severe psychological problems about their heritage, are embarrassed about it and seek to distance themselves from Jews who have to fight for their lives to protect the small haven they have in Israel.
I would call them TOTAL IDIOTS though. And as I said fortunately these idiots are only a very small segment.
I wish Wilders luck on his path. Wilders and Holland are victims of religio-fascism which has united with liberal fascist Dutch politicians. Until he can show that to his fellow countrymen, he will not be able to stay the course.
I guess I was referring more to my own country. Muslims state they want to kill us. Muslims like to kill. All muslims need to be in the Middle East killing each other.
Muslims have been inbred with a killing gene.
Well ... either Geert Wilders is right — OR — you are right, but both of you can’t be right at the same time.
Geert Wilders emphatically states that the MAJORITY of Muslims in the West are peaceful and law-abiding.
BUT perhaps you’re writing this from Iran or Pakistan - in which case I would fully understand what you’re talking about.
Perhaps some of us think we are on a different planet than Earth. The muslims on Earth have a reputation for bloodletting, maiming, and beheadings. Since they originated in the Middle East, perhaps they should go back to their homeland and practice their inherited bloodlust on each other?
Whenever someone makes a statement that says “all” (as in a group) or indicates so ... you can bet that the statement is wrong. By saying “Muslims” you’ve indicated “all” - and that’s clearly wrong from what I directly know.
Now ... Geert Wilders is the strongest spokesman against the violence and murder and mayhem of the Koran and those who use it for that purpose. You probably cannot find another political leader of his stature who spends so much time speaking out against Islam and these Islamic terrorists — and yet he fully well recognizes the fact that the majority of Muslims living in the West are perfectly peaceful and law-abiding.
What I know — for sure — is that if someone cannot see and recognize that not all Muslims are terrorists or support terrorists, that person does not have clear thinking capabilities and they should not be listened to, because they’ve already demonstrated their extreme lack of credibility right off the bat.
