Geert Wilders’ Hate: Not Just for Muslims Anymore

Geert Wilders’ Hate: Not Just for Muslims Anymore

Far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders is notorious for his hatred of Islam.

He has compared the Qur’an to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kamfreferred to the Prophet Muhammad as “the devil,” and warned of a “tsunami of Islamization” in Europe. His Party for Freedom (PVV) rose to third-place status by capitalizing on economic crisis and social anxiety by scapegoating Muslim immigrants, who he has likened to Nazis.

The shock value has worn off, and support for his political party is waning.

So what’s a hatemonger to do?

Wilders has declared a new enemy: Central and Eastern Europeans.  His far-right Freedom Party has captured headlines by launching a website where visitors can lodge complaints about fellow Europeans working in the Netherlands:

Reporting Central and Eastern Europeans

Since May 1, 2007 there is free movement of workers between the Netherlands and eight countries in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) countries. At present the estimates to the number of people from these countries, which resides in the Netherlands, apart from 200,000 to 350,000 people. As one of the few parties, the Freedom Party from the beginning against the opening of the labor market to Poland and other CEE nationals. Given all the problems associated with the massive arrival of especially Poland, is that attitude materialized. Recently, the PVV whatsoever against further opening of the labor market for Romanians and Bulgarians voted.

This massive labor migration leads to many problems, nuisance, pollution, displacement and integration in the labor and housing problems. For many people, these things a serious problem. Complaints are often not reported, because the idea that nothing is done.

Do you have trouble of CEE nationals? Or have you lost your job on a Pole, Bulgarian, Romanian or other Central or Eastern European? We would like to hear. The Freedom Party has a platform on this website to your symptoms to report. These complaints, we will identify and offer the results to the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment.

What’s this got to do with Muslims?

The move clearly demonstrates what we’ve always known.  Wilders is an opportunist and a hardcore bigot.

In the current climate, Islamophobia has been normalized to some degree, but the more hatemongers expose their ties to racism, xenophobia, and antisemitism, the more likely they are to  be relegated to the fringe by mainstream society.

Wilders’ antics have already sparked a firestorm of protest, and ambassadors from ten central and east European countries have complained. In response, the European Parliament has scheduled a debate on the topic next month.

Wilders boasted the site already had 40,000 responses and  dismissed the controversy telling reporters:

My reaction to the ambassadors is: Mind your own business. This has nothing to do with your country. We are a sovereign country, we are a democratic political party and we voice the concerns of many Dutchmen.

Opening a new front will undoubtedly dilute Wilders’ campaign to vilify Islam as a “unique threat” to Europe, and may further tarnish the country’s international reputation.  Whether the stunt will ultimately boost his popularity or exhaust Dutch tolerance for his peculiar brand far-right fear mongering remains to be seen.

  1. He is a dumbass! He compared Qur’an with Mein Kamf? I bet he never even read any of them!

  2. Uzair: that’s assuming he can read…

  3. What a charming fellow.

  4. And this is why we can’t have nice things.

  5. He’s a douche. Ask any Dutch person of goodwill. He’s an embarrassment.

  6. Kampf, not Kamf.

  7. What a scum.

  8. Mohammad is not the devil. Devil is a made up character in a book written by a delusional junkies 2 K years ago.

  9. Remember study that showed relationship of low IQ to right wing fundamentalism ….. Another example

  10. What’s he got up his nose?

  11. evidently he read Mein Kamf , seems like good Hitlerian tactics in use, amerikan Republicans would be very proud of him

  12. If Islam was truly so violent, why is it the number one religion that is being attacked by the most corrupt, influential people on this planet? It is not being attacked by the wisest, down-to-earth beings, is it? This ordeal should be a clear sign to those who visit Google and read articles explaining ‘Islam'; though they are written by some Zionist in Munich. People don’t understand the art of manipulation/deception so they believe appearance over reality. All that Islam is saying is to submit to God, as means of humbling oneself, and to defy one’s ego; nothing really bad in there, is it? It is the fastest growing religion on this planet. When we connect the dots we notice that the mass media isn’t making sense. Anyone can use the vehicle of Islam to hang gay people; but in reality, there is no earthly punishment in the Quaran for gay people; I wonder how many people are willing to put down their pride to believe that one, lol…

  13. What a drama queen

  14. omg :-(

  15. Who is this pig with a coke straw shoved up his nose?

  16. Anyone who has taken a moment to read the Koran would know that it includes some scripture that can also be found in the Bible — the creation of Earth, Adam and Eve, Abraham and its sons, even Jesus, who is considered a minor prophet in Islam. Yet there are some who not only never picked up a Koran, but condemned it as nothing but a book containing evil.

  17. I really wasn’t surprised when I read this. A bigot is a bigot. They are consumed by their own ignorance which leads to fear, which leads to hatred. They really don’t care who or what the hatred is aimed at. He’s one sick little man.

  18. This guy claims to have studied Islam and has travelled to Israel. Not exactly the best place to learn about Islam.

  19. The Koran is close to the bible but people would rather remain ignorant and let colon commandos like this clown fill their heads. Turn off the tv, put down the newspapers, and educate yourself because the crap media spoon feeds the masses is a joke

  20. @Stephen, Jesus is actually more than a “minor” prophet in Islam. He is one of the five supreme prophets along with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Muhammad.

  21. We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them.

  22. Based on the size of that forehead vain, he’s due for a stroke anyway. Schnitzel kills!

  23. What a dope…I mean…really, a dope, most likely on dope.

  24. From his pic, I’d say he liklely read ‘Animal Farm’ too…

  25. The Godwin Nazi card is a tool of the weak and feeble in any given debate, regardless of side.

  26. The Qur’an is an eternal miracle as it will continue to guide a large section of humanity forever.Comparing it to Hitler’s book is naivity of the highest order.

    The Prophet of Islam was not a racist as he elucidated the equality of mankind.

  27. Why would ANYBODY listen to this person?

  28. @harun: more like idiocy

  29. Michael Asbury j found like u know what ur talking about. How refreshing.

  30. That was u sound…

  31. Yeah he read Animal Farm but he didn’t get it…

  32. This is a White Trash Olympics medalist in the racist bigot event.

  33. He must have read Mein Kamf because he is doing what Hitler did and raising public awareness and national pride by naming a common enemy that everyone fears and using this for his own agenda.He is not dumb. He is smart but hopefully people will see through his deception to the truth.Hitler didn’t have to contend with the information highway. Keep a dialogue going with the truth always and he can be shown for what he is.

  34. If he speaks the truth, please bring the scientific evidence. Otherwise, even kindergarten students can speak like him. Please specify which verse in the Holy Quran.

  35. Christians do not have a fixed position. some of them feel ashamed to insult other religions. some were not ashamed to insult other religions. Some of them do not eat pork. other part can eat pork. how it can happen? hope that Christians can answer my question.

  36. God I hate these people. Get a life and stop hating people because of the extremists.

  37. Do I have to respond to a mad man?Allah will take of him and islam

  38. Syunor: Christans are human just like Muslims. Two people can read a verse and have two different opinions. In all religions there are opinions and some people who just do not practice. Some Christians believe one if Jesus’ companions had a dream that showed all food was okay. Others take the laws in the Old Testament literally.

  39. If = of sorry for typo.

  40. Anyway, Al Qur’an was better the way of our life, than this once http://m.youtube.com/watch?gl=US&hl=id&client=mv-nokia&v=ukgSgifSDG4&fulldescription=1

  41. to one of the first guys that commented, Mohammad was definitely a historical person. diplomatic letters between him and and the Byzantine emperor have survived to the modern day, and it was 1400 years ago, not 2000

  42. The nature of hate is to feed on itself until, finally, the hater even hates him/herself.

  43. Michael that is so true.

  44. The one good thing about Wilders? He’s not American.

  45. Those white Europeans are scared . . . . they remember what happened when the Moors invaded Spain . . . . .

  50. I still say that Christianity does not fixed stand because I have evidence. I have a review of ban on eating pork among Muslims and Christians.

  51. What’s he so mad about? that he can’t marry his boyfriend? He said Islam is a threat to gay rights. Geert Islam is not against gay rights it is against you. Islam hates morons with bleach there hair confusing Muslim men into thinking they are about to speak to a woman. So start acting like a man and will maybe acknowledge you are existence on this planet. You are nothing but a media whore, who the white devil has leashed on Islam; we can’t be stopped iinsha Allah shalom.

  55. I think he shoved up that straw a little harder so that it destroyed his forebrain, LOL!

  56. Shylon Smith or anyone else among Christians: between Christians who eat pork with Christians who do not eat pork, who sinned? One of them would be guilty.

  58. However. the closest religion to Islam is Christianity. Therefore, at the time of the prophet muhammad ago, when war between Rome and Persian. Muslims upset when Rome lost to Persian.

  62. Shayna, why do you continue to write “I Hate You Isreal”?

    Number 1 it shows you to be as bad as any bigot

    Number 2 I*s*r*a*e*l is the correct spelling for the country you hate. that means that you have misspelled the word over 120,000 times.

  63. And I would compare him to a heartless pig, but that would be insulting to pigs . . .

  65. Syukor: It is complicated. Some Christians do not believe eating pork is a sin. It is very clear in the Bible, the food laws are repeated multiple times (mostly in the chapter Leviticus); however, many say those laws applied to the Jews only and that the companion of Jesus when he dreamed all food was okay then the rules changed for Christians. There are multiple denominations (branches) within Christianity. Each has their own views on all major issues. There are also multiple translations of the Bible and wording can vary a lot between versions. I heard but have not seen for myself, that Roman Catholics also have some extra books in their Bible? I have read the protestant versions of the Bible many times. In my opinion pork is forbidden, but my parents do not agree. They are Methodist & Baptist. They eat pork.

  67. Shame on him! So much hate for his fellow human beings!

  69. This is one great big sleazeball !!!

  70. I’m 13 years old and from my point of view, he is being a hypocrite.
    Comparing a religion to Adolph Hitler is no excuse. Adolph Hitler prosecuted Jews and in a way that is what he is doing a a religion which he knows nothing about. In this day and age, this should not be happening and you know what, it’s sick. There are countless people who fought for the rights of different people. You wouldn’t be rude to a homosexual in the streets so why be rude to someone who is wearing a hijab? It’s actually so disgusting. This is exactly how the holocaust happened. None of us want a repeat of that. By saying ‘I hate islam but not muslims’. What’s the difference? You are discriminating helpless civilians. The whole idea of religion in society is to help us to live our lives in a good way. Other religions promote this kind of ethos, as well as islam. Now, I’m not a muslim but this is absolutely blasthemus by relating the prophet to the devil. He should be ashamed of himself.

  71. A silly pic of Wilders on an article from some entity called “loonwatch.com” Commenters calling him “white trash” when he is a Dutch politician. A highly biased, anonymous author calling Wilders a “hardcore bigot.” etc.

    Have any of you even read his book? Have any of you based your opinion of him on anything other than other people’s bigoted opinions?

    This website (or webpage, at least) is clearly a festering internet cesspool where horrid abominations of logic and reason come to copulate in a revolting mess of putrid drivel.

  72. […] other conservative leaders. Recent moves by his Party of Freedom have expanded its scope of hatred beyond Muslims to Eastern and Central Europeans. […]
