I have watched it several times.This only scratches the surface...and, believe me, the surface is all that has been scratched.America has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Left is a willing accomplice.Obama is a supporter of the MB. So is Hillary...and Huma.

    Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV), called for the total "de-Islamification" in a controversial manifesto posted online. The far-right MP, who has previously compared the Koran to Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf, also vowed to put an end to immigration from Islamic countries. He would also close all Islamic schools and asylum centres, and ban Muslim women from wearing the headscarf in public, if elected prime minister next year.Mr Wilders unveiled the manifesto ahead of the Netherlands' parliamentarian elections in March. The PVV currently leads the pack in almost every opinion poll amid growing anger at the Dutch...

    “A revolution,” Wikipedia says, “is a fundamental change in political power or organizational structures that take place in a relatively short period of time when the population rises up in revolt against the current authorities.” In Europe and America, revolutions are brewing. They are peaceful and democratic, but they are going to send the elites home that are running our nations into the ground.

    Anti-Islamisation politician Geert Wilders has been named politician of the year for the third time in a Dutch poll as his Freedom Party gains ground in the country. In a survey of 37,000 people, Mr Wilders won 25 per cent of the vote, making him the first politician to win the vote three times. Dutch news site NDTV says he beat his nearest opponent, Green-Left leader Jesse Klaver, by 11 per cent. In third place, Labour's finance minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem had just nine per cent.

    A heavy police presence in Mountain View Tuesday blocked roads for a controversial foreign dignitary. Police late Tuesday guided drivers around the IFES Portuguese Hall, where Dutch politician Geert Wilders spoke to the Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley. Wilders is widely known for his criticism of Islam, and has repeatedly called for the Quran to be banned in the Netherlands. Wilders is often heavily guarded by private guards, but Mountain View Police were on hand for Tuesday's event. This comes after two gunman fired shots outside an event in Texas earlier this year, where a contest was held to draw...

One of the speakers at that event, Dutch politician Geert Wilders, is planning to stage a Muhammad cartoon expo in the Dutch Parliament. Hannity asked Wilders if he is anti-Islam. "Well, I'm certainly not anti-Muslim, but indeed I believe Islam is a threat to our civilization," Wilders replied. "I believe that our country is based on values that are based on Christianity and Judaism, and that Islam is really a...

    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars We Must Stop Shooting The Messengers, It's a bit hard to quickly review this book without coming across as overtly bigoted, or staunchly judgmental (which I'm not), so I won't bother commenting much on the underlying themes presented within. Instead, I thought I'd try and detail why Geert Wilders message is an important example of how "politically correct" dogma has run amok in our society, and as a result of our collective rush to hyper-sensitivity the author suffered from mistaken identity. He has been wrongly overlooked, marginalized, tarred, feathered, and poorly assessed by so many....

    Islam, rather than a religion, is predominantly a totalitarian ideology striving for world dominance. I believe that Islam and freedom are incompatible. Some people do not want to hear this message. That is why they threaten to murder everyone who states this truth. I am not the only one who has been marked for death. The British author Salman Rushdie, the Scandinavian cartoonists Kurt Westergaard and Lars Vilks have all been victims of assassination attempts. However, if you really love freedom, you have to speak the truth. If not, we will fall victim to Islam, like earlier the people in...

    Angela Merkel does not make the covers of Dutch newspapers very often. But the German chancellor's assertion last week that "multiculturalism has absolutely failed" in her country was headline news in the Netherlands. As far as the Dutch are concerned, the Germans - whom they consider to sometimes be politically behind the times - have finally woken up. The Netherlands' dream of a happy, harmonious multicultural society burst on a grey autumn morning six years ago in Amsterdam. On November 2, 2004, an Islamic extremist gunned down Dutch filmmaker and Islam critic Theo van Gogh in the street, then slit...

    A senior Afghan Taliban official has warned of an attack against the Netherlands if its new government implements the agenda of anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders, the Volkskrant daily reported Monday. "If the Netherlands maintains or intensifies its anti-Islam policy, it is certain that the Netherlands will be the target of an attack by a jihadist group," Zabiullah Mujahed, a long-time Taliban spokesman, is quoted as having told the newspaper.

    The incredibly stupid prosecution of Dutch politician Geert Wilders is over. Wilders, who faced up to a year in prison for "hate speech," was allowed to walk for saying mean things about Islam: The public prosecution department on Friday afternoon stated that Geert Wilders is not guilty of discriminating against Muslims. Earlier on Friday it announced he should also be found not guilty of inciting hatred. Prosecutors Birgit van Roessel and Paul Velleman reached their conclusions after a careful reading of interviews with and articles by the anti-Islam politician and a viewing of his anti-Koran film Fitna. They said comments...

    Prosecutors relent, say Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders 'not guilty' of criminally insulting Muslims Anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders should be found not guilty of insulting Muslims and non-western immigrants as a group, the public prosecution department said at the MP's trial on Tuesday. By likening the Koran to Hitler's Mein Kampf, Wilders was focusing on Islam and the Koran, rather than Muslims, even if the statement can be considered upsetting, the public prosecutors said during court hearings in Amsterdam. In addition, there can only be talk of collective insult when a statement damages the entire group, the prosecutors said....

    Go, Wilders, go! The trial has been halted after the presiding judge made a prejudicial remark. This is magnificent. Is a "fair" trial even remotely possible? For the most reliable updates, go to Wilders on Trial. Previous Atlas coverage of Wilders' ongoing heresy trial (for insulting Islam) -- go here. Back in early February, the Dutch court adjourned Wilders' trial for nine months to give the three witnesses testifying for Wilders time to schedule their testimony (Wafa Sultan was one of the witnesses -- her historical testimony is here). If you missed Wilders' opening remarks back in January in his...

    Two dissident Christian Democrat MPs have finally voted in favour of their party forming a new governing alliance which will involve the anti-Islam PVV. The unanimous decision from the 21 CDA MPs means the next stage in the coalition formation process - the appointment of ministers - can now be taken. On Monday night, acting party leader Maxime Verhagen told reporters 'there are no dissidents any more', leading commentators to speculate that a behind the scenes deal had been done. Pressure The two, Kathleen Ferrier and Ad Koppejan, had come under considerable pressure to fall into line. They were known...

    Because the true name of the game is Muslim intimidation of a divided, squabbling, and spineless West...while they -along with unwitting fifth-columnist morons of our Left- destroy the few brave individuals still actually willing to speak-out in our defense. "The West's longstanding democratic tradition of free expression means nothing if it doesn't protect unpopular speech" As the Dutch government attempts to shut-down Wilders by going after him in court with open-to-interpretation "hate crime" charges, it's hard not to recall litigious one-worlder Barack Obama's recent legal attempts to crush the will of not just Governor Jan Brewer but 70% of her...
