WATCH: Geert Wilders on trial: "Freedom of speech is the only freedom I have left"

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator
 

Geert Wilders is on his third trial in a Dutch court for speech crimes. Here are his opening remarks.

The first trial was declared a mistrial and dropped. 

The state seemed to want him destroyed and brought "new" charges against him.

He was found not guilty and the case was dropped.

Then when he was discussing a central aspect of any democratic government policy, that of immigration, he was charged again for saying the Netherlands needed less Moroccans, as they are grossly over represented in all crime stats and abuse of state welfare programs.

Geert is charged with a hate crime for taking a rational position on a matter of public policy, namely, immigration.

And Geert is a sitting member of the Dutch Parliament.

This in effect means that the governing party has made it a criminal offense to oppose government policies, effectively ending any kind of actual democratic process. 

Here is a reminder from England's comic actor, Rowan Atkinson from 2012 on where he felt England was going at the time. 

I guess we can all decide how far he was from the mark by now.

If that judge does not recuse herself then the robes she wears is justice in drag.

Yes, he is a hero and we need many more to step up to the plate! They are trying to silence everyone who speaks the truth, and who want freedom from government interference.

It seems that anyone who dares to criticize Islam ends up on their hit list and needs 24 hour protection as Geert Wilders and many others require. Others end up dead, as Theo Van Gogh, who was related to the famous artist ended up. Van Gogh was a film director and author who had worked with Somali born writer and politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali to produce a short film, Submission, (which is what Islam means). It criticized the treatment of women in Islam. On Nov. 2, 2004, Van Gogh was murdered by Mohammed Bouyeri a Dutch-Morrocan Muslim. He was shot in the head several times and then had his throat slit and Mohammed tried to decapitate him. Mohammed then stabbed the knife deep into Van Gogh’s chest and reached his spinal cord. He attached a note to the second knife he stabbed him with that contained a death threat to Ayaan Hirsi Ali who has since also had to go into hiding from the religion of peace. The note also threatened Western countries and Jews.

At that time Geert Wilders recommended a 5-year-halt to immigration from non-Western societies saying “The Netherlands has been too tolerant to the intolerant for too long”. And that’s putting it mildly.

How many others who have tried to leave the religion/political ideology/Sharia Law now have death threats hanging over them? We have friends who escaped from Iran, when their father passed away who was still over there, they could not even go back for his funeral. They did not know if they would get out alive. And Iran wants to make a statue of American prisoners for a “tourist attraction”. Who would go to a country that it’s own people don’t feel safe in going back to? Nonie Darwish is another lady who left Islam and now has to fear for her safety. For telling the truth. Islam is Islam. A dangerous political ideology. They use fear and submission to try and control their followers.

Anybody in the west feel like separation from Ottawa?

For Alberta go to:

http://alberta.independence-movement.org/core-principles/

There are sister sites in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and BC. First step is to get registered as a party in your province and that means getting the required amount of signatures, 15,000 in Alberta. Lots of work but it’s a start. Alberta plan is to eventually unite the right and get the hell away from the greedy hands of Trudeau and Quebec.

This is a disgusting form of injustice! Talk about abuse of human rights…This is a sick sick society.
I thought the Dutch after what they went through with the NAZI’s in WW2 were smarter than this.

Look at these scum-bag commie kangaroos. The beedy-eyed guy in the middle looks like Joseph Goebbels the little rat. They are all trying to stare down Geert Wilders without blinking.

Why would the West want to come to Europe’s defense again?

The USA should send the EU the bill for their NATO efforts.
If the Donald gets in that might be an option?.

the progressives of today’s world would condemn leaders like Winston Churchill and support Stalin or Hitler, the left and right will never find a common ground to agree on anything soon

Western society is grinding to a standstill because the judicial class has abandoned traditional civil justice for decrees based on political abstractions – and because those super class predators with ulterior motives concerning the sovereignty of the western nation-state democracies know our political class will sell out their own constituents for comfortable sinecure and insulation from the dystopian serfdom their failed political abstractions will thrust on the populace.

Deborah you got that right, dying on your feet is better than living on your knees.

I’d rather die with the truth on my lips, than to live under the thumb of these communist fools!

Politically correct, progressive thinking by idiots, who believed all the propaganda they were confronted with, at school, is the Demon in this situation. Thought Crime will also get you a Jail term in the UK.

Geert Wilders is not a Racist, in all of his speeches that I have seen he has never said anything that could be construed as racist. Holland’s Government, like the Governments of Germany, France, the UK, are all in bed with the UN and the UN is the heart of the problem. They will not allow one word to be said against the Muslims, this would upset their plans for world domination.

Now we are stuck with Trudeau, who is only in power because of UN financing and string pulling, is also in bed with the UN, not because of what he thinks, he is incapable of thought, but he knows that he owes them.

Pay Back is a Bastard and Trudeau will drag us all down the road, to The Islamic State of Canadistan.

Allah Akbar.

the judiciary system throughout the civilized world has become something that no longer protects its citizenry, its society, and its culture. Certainly Islam has used oil money to pay off educators, lefty unions, and government. That Wilders sits before the courts…again..is a testimony to the corruption of the minds of many. I see no solution other than a war with weapons as the battle for our freedoms can no longer be won. Its a shame that the animals have caged our civilization in the zoo and are now the gate keepers. Welcome to sharia.

Wlders is pretty screwed when one of the 3 judges has already condemned him publicly. She must step down! Wilders says, "It is my job as a democratically elected representative of the people to identify the problems in our country. How and why do I want fewer Moroccans … written down in … election platform … . We want to stop immigration from non-Western immigrants … of Moroccans … to promote voluntary repatriation. … de-naturalize criminals with dual nationality and expel them … "
Europe’s foundation is cracking now. Syrian refugees and other migrants are another symptom not the disease. Wilders is the messenger not the message. Ten to twenty years of silence has a allowed the gestation of one kind of free speech to reign over another. When Hitler was re-arming in breech of the Treaty of Versailles, Britain refused to confront Germany because Europe did not want a repeat of the devastation and destruction as the likes of WWI. Such complacency and capitulation resulted in what is to be expected if you live in reality and we already have history on our side to know how that turned out! I expect my government to secure our borders, protect its OWN citizens already, and readily identify and neutralize threats and enemies – Liberals simply pretend such things cannot exist.
Mr. Harper acted pre-emptively and had our backs, to prevent us from what has become of Europe. PMSH said that most Syrians did not want to come to Canada but wanted to remain in camps to return home once the ISIS mission had a chance to be accomplished. Repatriation is always preferred, and has historically been, the process – returning persons to their place of origin or citizenship, including refugees or military personnel, following a war.
Mr. Harper implemented de-naturaization of convicted dual-citizen terrorists with repatriation, the same as Wilders began in his campaign 10 years ago. The Liberals here believe that they must (first un-do) re-do what has failed miserably elsewhere while expecting they will produce different results. I believe that is the definition of insanity! Wilders’ wrongdoing?? “Only in a dictatorship is speaking the truth a crime.”

Great speech from Atkinson until he quoted Obama, the most PC milquetoast politician in power. The President that calls terrorism “workplace violence.” The same guy that signed a UN resolution that prohibits “the slander of Islam” when “slander” in Islam is defined as disallowing the truth that some do not want to be known. Obama wouldn’t use radicalism, terrorism, extremism if he is face to face with a suicide bomber ready to pull the switch!!

Speak out against the rulers and you WILL go to jail.

Bet you a Timmies it would happen here as well.

Speak an opinion and get charged by the social justice thugs.

This one – in my opinion is rigged.

He will be jailed.

Just like the man who wore a pink pig hat was.

Grotesquely there are those more interested in the free speech of radical Imams who are truly inciting hatred than they are of the free speech of those wishing to expose and deal with them.

Why no jury of Peers??? 3 political kangas – why in the frik would you expect freedom when there is no justice representing popular will.

I think you’re in the wrong country to be arguing about natural rights – from Feisian feudal subjugation, to an inherent aristocracy, to kingdom, to mercantile class Plutocracy, to a Quisling fascist state to a Socialist oligarchy, The Netherlands have a dismal record of state deference to civil liberty. What’s changed? Now the people suffer under a double tyranny of Brussels EU autocrats and domestic cultural Marxist control freaks.

Come to Canada Geert and sit as an independent in parliament across the house from Junior and remind him daily what a censorious little twat he is.

Witch hunts in a modern society, well, supposedly modern society. Sickening.
