Good News: Geert Wilders Aquitted. Bad News: Muzzies to Move Case to the U.N.

I doubt any Muzzies will be paying for all those legal fees Mr. Wilders has been forced to endure over this ridiculous witch hunt:

Dutch populist Geert Wilders acquitted of hate speech

(Reuters) – Dutch populist politician Geert Wilders was acquitted of inciting hatred of Muslims in a court ruling on Thursday that may strengthen his political influence and exacerbate tensions over immigration policy.

The case was seen by some as a test of free speech in a country which has a long tradition of tolerance and blunt talk, but where opposition to immigration, particularly from Muslim or predominantly Muslim countries, is on the rise.

Instantly recognizable by his mane of dyed blond hair, Wilders, 47, is one of the most outspoken critics of Islam and immigration in the Netherlands.

His Freedom Party is now the third-largest in parliament, a measure of support for its anti-immigrant stance, and is the minority government’s chief ally. But many of Wilders’ comments — such as likening Islam to Nazism — are socially divisive.

The presiding judge said Wilders’s remarks were sometimes “hurtful,” “shocking” or “offensive,” but that they were made in the context of a public debate about Muslim integration and multi-culturalism, and therefore not a criminal act.

“I am extremely pleased and happy,” Wilders told reporters after the ruling. “This is not so much a win for myself, but a victory for freedom of speech. Fortunately you can criticize Islam and not be gagged in public debate.”


Minorities groups said they would now take the case to the United Nations Human Rights Committee, arguing the ruling meant the Netherlands had failed to protect ethnic minorities from discrimination.

“The acquittal means that the right of minorities to remain free of hate speech has been breached. We are going to claim our rights at the U.N.,” said Mohamed Rabbae of the National Council for Moroccans.

Wilders, who has received numerous death threats and has to live under 24-hour guard, argued that he was exercising his right to freedom of speech when criticizing Islam.

    Over and over will will hear the whining and the phony hissy fits being thrown by the practitioners of the so-called ‘Religion Of Peace. Mr. Wilders is one man who has said some very harsh but true statements. Strangely and as always silent are the talking heads in the MSM and the groveling apologists and appeasers in the useless political elite in most western nations. Volume upon volume of vicious, hateful, and inciting verbal diarrhea directed against the unholy, unclean infidel throughout most of Western Europe, the US and the non Muslim world on a daily basis and there is not so much as a whimper of objection from the ‘esteemed’ representatives of the people.

      RIGHT Big Frank ! Geert Wilders is a great example of courage and guts winning a fight with all odds against him.

      His victory is not just the presevation of the free speech standard, but that he HAD THE GALL to criticize and EXPOSE Islam, for the blood-laced cult of the 7th century it really is !

      And Frank, if you are attacked for your stand on this subject tell your critics to go to any public place and try to tell the truth about Islam

  2. Yes indeed this is just one of many victories agianst islam.

    Absolutely, lets get the UN involved in how minority groups are treated by the “establishment” in various countries. A good place to start would be how Christians, Jews, homosexuals, apostates, and Hindus are treated in islamic theocracies, and how they fail to protect.

    Lets compare the treatment of having negative things said about you (whaaaaaaa) compares to legitimate crimes against humanity such as denial of gvt services, torture, rape, and imprisonment.

    As far as the ‘followers of the teachings of the prophet’ are concerned, it’s no shock to me that they will run to the useless UN looking for support. IMHO the UN is nothing more then a club and a propaganda pulpit for dictators and despots. a total waste of time, resources and a drain on the few dues paying members. Most of the ‘esteemed UN’ representatives live the high life in NYC while their countries whither away and squander large amounts of cash, which never finds it’s way to the alleged ‘needy’.
