What a mark of embarrassment against the Dutch before the free societies of the world. What a harbinger of "hate speech" laws to bind us all! Contact
to speak on behalf of Mr. Geert Wilders and freedom of speech. Also please see
of Mr. Geert Wilders' warnings. Compare that with the videos of imams ranting against infidels found at Tundra Tabloids among other places.
The Dutch Government and Justice Minister E.M.H. Hirsch Ballin are set to prosecute Mr. Geert Wilders for, not "hate speech" causing incitement against a benign party.
No, they are prosecuting Mr. Wilders for speaking out AGAINST the truth about female mutilation, barbaric by any standards, carried out against young women - young girls generally - by the practitioners of a political ideology and about other incitements to hatred against those who do not practice the same ideology. Never mind that that same ideology calls for the destruction of Jews and Christians.
Female mutilation cannot be justified under the guise of a "religious practice." If it is, then there can be no prosecutions if those who follow the same political ideology murder Jews, Christians, and other non-believers in Holland. And there goes Holland...down the rabbit hole into darkness and into the 7th Century.
Mr. Wilders is speaking out on behalf of women for the safety of women and for an end to their mutilation. Are the Dutch Government and Justice Minister E.M.H. Hirsch Ballin supporting the mutilation of female genitalia? Are they in favor of this brutality against women? My Lord, to what depths has Holland sunk?
Mr. Wilders is warning of the growing push for Sharia Law to be practiced throughout Europe thereby leading perhaps to the removal of the very prosecutor and the striking down of the very governmental Justice System that used to "protect freedoms for all", a Justice System he is trying to save.
When the truth, a call for the protection of women against barbaric practices, is turned into "hate speech", the truth is turned on its head and no one is safe.
Generally "hate speech" laws or most notably "hate crime" laws exist to punish the non-favored folks who commit a crime, any crime, against the favored folks and so far, non-binding Resolutions of the House of Representatives are in place today even in the United States to silence anyone who even speaks about Islam - whether the truth or not. We are only a short breath away from such non-binding resolutions becoming law. But today...
Islam is the favored ideology. Under Sharia Law, certainly infidels - billions of people across the globe - are not to speak against Islam. And for goodness sake, don't publish a cartoon.
I can appreciate why many within powerful positions in Islamic Republics such as Iran do not want their people calling for open and free discussions about the kind of governments they want but the restrictions against their "freedom of speech" within their own countries should not apply against those of us living in societies where "freedom of speech" exists. The youth of Iran are fighting for their freedoms and that's as it should be...
"Hate Speech" laws, just like "hate crimes", are the natural bastard children of the Whore of Political Correctness. These laws are to be mocked and banned by reasonable people. Murder is murder; it is a "hate-filled" act on its face so no further laws are needed, just prosecution for the murder.
Even worse, these laws are NOT implemented against "favored classes", those whose ideology calls for the mutilation of women and the annihilation of an entire people living in a member-nation of the UN, or let's say Israel.
Tell me, if the Honorable Geert Wilders were a card-carrying member of the political ideology held under most favored-status today by the Dutch prosecutor, would Mr. Wilders be facing prosecution if he had instead called upon fellow followers of the same political ideology packaged under the guise of "robes of religion" to kill or persecute non-believers, non-true believers?
The answer is self-evident. No, Mr. Wilders would not face prosecution. It is a brave new world of "Animal Farm" today in Europe and the United States where Christians and Jews - in some cases - are simply not treated as "equal before the law." They are singled out for persecution in a variety of assorted ways. In the United States today, they are just mocked and laughed at or sometimes treated with derision, even by highly placed elected officials against whom "hate speech" laws would NEVER be charged.
Tell me, if the Honorable Geert Wilders had been a card-carrying member of the Nazi Party - certainly a political ideology calling for the "Jewish solution" in the 1940s - much as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling for the annihilation of Israel and the Jews today - and had incited people to persecute the Jews throughout Holland, Ann Frank comes to mind, would he have been on trial for "hate speech"?
Or is the trial of the Honorable Geert Wilders based upon simpler premises? Is the trial of Mr. Wilders simply based on extortion or the threat of reprisals against Holland's "justice" system and/or threatened riots against non-believers and against public institutions if he is not tried?
As our Representative Maxine Waters threatened back in the days of the O.J. Simpson trial, something to the effect - if memory serves - that if Mr. Simpson were found guilty, L.A. would burn.
Extortion and threats of that sort are to me the genesis of "hate-incited" action yet Representative Waters was never charged with "hate speech" for seemingly inciting people to riot.
L.A. was held hostage until Mr. Simpson was "acquitted" of murders he most probably committed; however, his victims did not have "favored status". His victims were white; one a white woman, one a young Jewish man.
Is Holland being held hostage? Is that the real motivation for the prosecution of the Honorable Geert Wilders for speaking the truth?
