Geert Wilders is Guilty in the Court of Public Opinion

14 October 2010 Loonwatch.com No Comment Email This Post Email This Post

Geert Wilders, the anti-freedom-anti-Muslim-peroxide-using Dutch politico is in the news this week because he is on trial for charges relating to hate incitement and defamation. This comes on the heels of Wilders’ (ironically named) Freedom Party (PVV) being allowed to join a coalition with the Christian Democrats (CDA) and the Liberal Party (VVD). The coalition is viewed as frail and many are speculating whether it can survive a crucial vote of confidence in the parliament.

Wilders and his goof troop are trying to paint this as an Islamic assault against Freedom and an appeasement or capitulation by the Dutch “ruling elite” to Islam. His two vice regents of Islamophobia in the US, fellow soldiers in hate Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer have taken the talking points of *victimization* and run with almost daily postings on the “Geert Wilders” trial.

LoonWatch understands the value of freedom more than any of these goons combined. The right to Free Speech, even unpopular speech is fundamental, and frankly the democracy of the internet gives us the opportunity to expose these modern day hypocrites who wrap themselves in the flag of freedom while at the same time undermining it.

What is crossing the line?

Criticism of Islam and Muslims is fair game. Making fun of Islam or Muslims is fair game as well and most Western Muslims are thick-skinned enough to handle it. This is evidenced by the fact that incidences such as the Danish Cartoons, Fitna, Everybody Draw Mohammed Day, Terry Jones’ handlebar mustache, etc. didn’t evince the expected throng of wild-eyed bearded Muslims rioting across Western Capitols.

Crossing the line however is incitement to violence against Muslims. An essentialization of Islam and regurgitation of common, long held Orientalized views and stereotypes of Muslims provide fodder for the demagogues willing to instrumentalize such views for their ends. Wilders fits into this description, his tactic is to denounce Muslims and their “retarted culture” through a full frontal attack on Islam that usually lacks honesty and facts and seeks to disinform a public already on edge with world events and local concerns such as immigration.

Already Wilders is guilty in the public realm of hypocrisy, (proclaims “freedom” but then wants to ban the Qur’an, tax Hijabs, deport citizens of immigrant background, etc.), of exploitation (instrumentalizing Islam and Muslims for political gain) and a bad, out-of-date hairdo, but is he guilty of incitement and discrimination?

This will be for the Dutch courts to decide, but it is enough to note that he is one of the guiding inspirations for an anti-Muslim movement that spans two continents and bridges the Atlantic. Organizations such as the EDL, SIOA, SIOE, ACT! for America and many more are inspired by Wilders hate speech. When he stands in New York and says, “No Mosque here!” his followers know the implication of his words and they are enthralled. The Dutch prosecutors will analyze Wilders’ racist statements, his proposals for discriminatory policies, but no matter what they decide, and contrary to premature assertions from Wilders’ spin masters Geller and Spencer, he is already guilty!

While you are waiting for the trial enjoy our favorite Geert Wilders jingle!:

Translation:

Our Geert

I know exactly how things stand,

Don’t bore me with the facts.

Give me one of those lefty newspapers,

So that I can sh*t on it.

The Dutch broadcasting corporations,

Pretend to be journalists,

They don’t do anything but lie,

Those dirty socialists.

They hate our Geert,

We hate the government,

That is secretly heading

For islamization.

We were born stupid,

Never had any education,

But we don’t give a damn,

We’ll vote for Geert anyway.

The government doesn’t do anything

About all those Moroccans

Who are on the dole

And stealing our jobs.

They also have a god,

But ours is better.

Their women are all ugly,

Ours are much hotter.

They don’t have any respect

For rules and legislation,

But Geert is not at all afraid,

He’ll throw them out of the country.

We were born stupid,

Never had any education,

But we don’t give a damn,

We’ll vote for Geert anyway.

As soon as Geert is Prime Minister,

As he’s told us oftentimes,

He’ll ban the Koran,

Allah and His prophets.

But that’s not all,

Geert is not easily satisfied,

The Imams will have to go

He’ll close down all their mosques.

And if the Muslims

Start protesting

Geert will shoot them through the knee

And we’ll all chant:

We were born stupid,

Never had any education,

But we don’t give a damn,

We’ll vote for Geert anyway.
