FLASHBACK: Geert Wilders on “the patriotic spring” sweeping the West

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

[NOTE: Originally posted February 27, 2017.] The Netherlands has its Parliamentary elections in a couple of weeks, and the man who is leading the polls right now is Geert Wilders. 

Wilders is the leader of the Party for Freedom. His chief campaign focus is de-Islamification:

Stopping mass immigration, for sure, but more specifically, stopping the cultural, legal, criminal and social ramifications of bringing in a million Muslims into a country of 17 million Dutch.

(That’s twice the Islamification that Canada has, proportionately; we have just over a million Muslims in a population of 36 million.)

I sat down with Geert Wilders in The Hague on Thursday morning. 

That very day, news broke that one of Wilders' own security staff was caught secretly passing on information about Wilders’ movements to a Moroccan jihadist group.

Of course they want to kill him. He’s the only one trying to close the door, while the rest of the politicians there are prying it further open, in return for power or votes or money…

I’ve watched the interview a few times. Thanks Ezra for doing this.

Was trying to envision Trudeau responding to similar questions which were posed to Geert. God this country is in trouble. Trudeau simply can’t be our Prime Minister for another term.

The Canadian Criminal Justice System needs to enforce hate speech laws and charge Imams who are quoting from this hateful book & who are also instructing followers to regard Mohammed as a good example of how to behave. It’s sickening to read about how this self-proclaimed prophet lived and has corrupted humankind for 1400 years! The followers should be directed to report hate speech & failure to do so identifies you as a radical muslim. Those who claim they are “moderate muslims” really need to end their silence when they hear hate in their mosques; and stop giving financial support. It would be most ethical to end any kind of funding to terrorist organizations. Hate speech is also happening across the country in Muslim Student Associations and muslim schools. I also believe the Quran should be banned, and definitely should not be used in courtrooms when a muslim witness is about to give testimony. Some other oath should be administered. Our Prime Minister has been quoted saying “honour killings should not be called barbaric”. I am still shocked by his statement. This tells me he is willing to take Motion 103 all the way; and will later create a law to end any, and all criticism of Islam. He cannot be trusted to uphold our Charter of Rights and Freedoms or the Canadian Criminal Code. Mr. Trudeau is lacking Canadian values, and would have us believe “Islamaphobia” is systemic, and needs to be eradicated; even when there is no evidence to support this assertion. How much will the so-called study cost the Canadian taxpayer? Will the study be conducted properly; or, will there be muslim interest groups leading it? Either way, it’s a waste of taxpayer money to proceed with it.
What all Canadians would benefit from is to research what is happening to Western culture worldwide and speak up before we find ourselves asking, “what happened to our nation?” Islam is not a “religion of peace”, and the sooner we accept this truth, then, we can demand that our politicians protect Canadians based on the reality; rather than a lie. We can elect officials who are willing to do the work and safeguard our rights; and stop further Islamization of Canada. We too have to carefully vet who is coming to our country & not reward illegal immigrants by giving them citizenship.

Space Moose, (this thread is getting old, regardless). Did Wilders not say that immigrants were equal to that of a Dutchman? Dose he not make a good case for the totalitarian comparison? The scumbag thing was out of line, but we all make mistakes.

Neil Richards, There are many Canadians speaking out against m103, but what good is going to come of it? Many Americans I’m sure, spoke out against Obama, but no good ever came of it. And why not? Because the entire free world is facing the onslaught of communism, which is determined to eventually have us all cowering in fear of getting arrested for saying the wrong things (this is all happening right now on facebook, you tube, and very soon Canada) never to be seen or heard from again. I know it’s not at that alarming level yet, but any history regarding communism, fascism, islamism, all ends the same way. In the beginning of the 20th century the Russian communist movement murdered multi-millions of their people for the crime of disagreeing with communism or being a Christian among other innocent reasons. We mustn’t give up, while there’s still time. The more things go their (islam, liberals, commies, the ellite, etc.) way, the sooner freedom ends and the nightmares begin.

Jeff Plum, that would indeed put a stop to the problem of Islam in Canada. It would so put a wrench in their plan as well as the agenda of this government, that I fear it would be an impossibility. That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth a try. Islam without it’s ‘holy book’ can no longer be recognized as a religion, and therefore can no longer hide behind our constitutional laws of freedom of religion. Such a move would render it powerless.
What did Ezra say the Muslim population already was in Canada, 3%? Look at what they are demanding, and where they have infiltrated at 3%. From our universities to our House of Commons. Can you imagine what they will demand at 6% which is what the Netherlands lives with right now? It will be a few scant years for Canada to be in very serious trouble. Islam thinks they are doing us a favour, that they have a right to inflict their totalitarian ideology on us because after all ‘Islam is the solution’ according to Muslims. They will do anything and say anything to get in a position to completely dominate us. They are Muslim supremacists and we are dirty kafir. Islam is an ideology just as communism is and fascism is. It neither looks or acts like a religion.
commented 2017-02-28 14:26:51 -0500
Ezra, A good point has been danced around, and that is this: The Qur’an is illegal under our current hate laws in Canada. If you actually read the Qur’an, you find a multitude of examples of hate literature. Perhaps you could spearhead a drive to have the Qur’an identified as hate literature, by our judicial system. It would then be outlawed in Canada and that would pretty well be the end of Islam in Canada. This movement would then spread to other countries, helping the human race to evolve peacefully.
commented 2017-02-28 11:07:38 -0500
Space Moose; it’s too late for that. If you’re against mass immigration you already have a bad name or considered marginal at best. It’s full on fight or go home at this point.
commented 2017-02-28 04:17:19 -0500
I think ‘scumbag’ is your word Space Moose not Geerts. Islam walks, talks, dominates, controls and subjugates like a political, totalitarian ideology.
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck….
commented 2017-02-28 02:01:55 -0500
Now why does Wilders have to be an asshole in the way he does things? Does he really need to call the Moroccans scum bags? Or state that Islam is not a religion, and to liken it to Naziism?

If he wants the respect of people, he should act like the Hungarian prime min.

What is more likely going to happen, is Wilders gives a bad name to anybody that is against the mass migration of refugees. This will lead to Wilders losing out to some super left wing party, that will insist on keeping the front door open to all of the third world countries.

A fabulous interview and congratulations to a Ezra Levant for a great job. Geert Wilders is treasure to the Netherlands and wishing him success in the upcoming election. I hope the Dutch people realize how brave this man is and support his fight to save the Dutch culture and freedoms they presently have.
All Canadians need to see this interview to understand how the far left elite governments are destroying their own countries with the advancement of the Islamic ideologies. Trudeau is a prime example and Canadians need to speak out and be quiet no more. If you want to come to a Canada you need to be thankful for the opportunity to be Canadian and accept our ideals and assimilate not segregate.

More hope shining through in our darkening hour. Trump is one of the shining lights, we need more.
commented 2017-02-28 00:32:52 -0500
The Qur’an is what you’d get if Hitler had written the Bible.

The Qur’an is a clearly-written hate-crime expressing a permanent death-threat: it tells it’s muslim mind-slaves that they are in fact SO “superior” to all the non-members of their war and plunder cult, that it’s not only their right, but also their holy duty to their god, to extort, enslave, and murder all the non-muslims in the world, simply for the “crime” of not being muslims!

So “muslims” are nothing more than criminals, pedophile murderers who dress up in the robes and beards of religious men, waving fake bibles, yelling about “god” to cover up their criminal natures to get closer to their victims.

Good Interview Ezra ! COURAGE (Esp if you don’t ‘tow the line’ of political correctness) is a rare and precious commodity in these times. Mr Wilders has been so maligned by the ‘progressive’ culture yet still ‘stands his ground’ and has well thought-out answers and pretty straight forward solutions. Thank You Ezra. All the Best to Mr Wilders, his optimism is contagious!
commented 2017-02-28 00:20:27 -0500
@ron Joseph; If that ruined the interview for you, well you gotta lighten up. Run some laps or something.
commented 2017-02-28 00:16:13 -0500
Truer message couldn’t be spoken!
commented 2017-02-27 23:04:05 -0500
Thank you Ezra for this fine interview. I’ve been looking forward to this.
I have much respect and admiration for Mr Wilders. The Netherlands needs this
Man to win and stop Islam from ruining their country.
commented 2017-02-27 22:05:50 -0500
These are not hateful words coming from Geert Wilders. All the hate comes from the other side against freedom of expression. I hope the Dutch people do the smart thing this spring and elect his party. Excellent questions from Ezra as usual; it’s always refreshing to watch a quiet interview where the interviewer does not interrupt the guest but lets him say what he needs to say.
commented 2017-02-27 22:05:23 -0500
A superb interview. Journalistic integrity at its finest.

If the Dutch people wake up in hordes, Geert will win and will not only change the Netherlands for the better but with help from Marine Le Pen, change the very face of Europe for the better.

This should be required viewing for all liberals. The thing is they wouldn’t understand.
commented 2017-02-27 21:34:06 -0500
Wilders as a Euro-socialist knows you can have the welfare state or you can have open boarders but you can’t have both.

Wilders knows that unvetted immigration and rising crime and social unrest are symptoms – these are symptoms of the political class’s advancing “globalism”. In essence “globalism” is a scheme concocted by the uber-rich to destroy the working and middle classes through worldwide financial imperialism.

. Globalism replaces self-sustaining first world workers with 3rd world unskilled marginally employed welfare/subsidy clients and calls labor unionists, employment analysts or opposition politicians “racists” if they dare make a peep about it.

While it may be an economic windfall for transnational financiers who have bought influence with globalist governments, and unskilled manual laborers from the 3rd world, for skilled workers throughout the developed west, globalism has been a gallows to hang middle class wages and the depletion of the social welfare safety net. For the Western working class, globalism has meant retreat, defeat, relocation or dissolution. Somewhere Soros smiles knowing he finally killed the unions and middle class economic power, it just took a hook-up with transnational kleptocrats and the untapped wealth of unskilled 3rd world labor to do it, Rockefeller is probably spinning in his grave wishing he’d thought of this sooner.

Too bad all the Dutch expats can’t fly in for a day and cast their vote to save their heritage.
commented 2017-02-27 20:40:14 -0500
Dan, as Geert Wilder’s said, if they weren’t making a difference they wouldn’t be attacked so relentlessly, or viciously. If our government and media didn’t think our opposing voices weren’t getting ever louder, we wouldn’t be seeing proactive moves such as m-103 popping up. They also wouldn’t be calling us racist , Islamophobic, xenophobes. Dogs don’t bark at parked cars. They know the dissent is growing and I submit that they are listening, and listening closely.

Great interview Ezra, the views on you tube are well over 10,000 already.
You can be sure that anybody who is anybody from the establishment has already watched it.
God speed, Geert Wilders.

Terry MaCloud—-Whats Jay Kelly got to do with this important subject? You and around 5 others ruin some good stories by focusing your attention on that guy, and getting everyone off subject. Jay must be a good troll as he sucks you guys in every time.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 32,896 Attacks, 210,877 Killed, 294,905 Injured that we know of.

If the Netherlands is smart they’ll vote for Geert Wilders. If not It’s Bye Bye Netherlands.

First Rate interview Ezra, Well Done.

It is a pity that Wilders security has been breached. This will create major problems with his Campaign.
commented 2017-02-27 19:13:35 -0500
Without any hyperbole, Ezra’s, Geert Wilders interview is such an important bit of information that it really must be seen by all Canadians, but most certainly, the chattering classes referred to…like next time there’s a full House of Commons, hold them all hostage and make them watch it, but tell them there’ll be a test at the end…their passing of which or not, determining whether they walk out or are carried out of the HOC! This would include all ‘journalists’, the fingerprinted or otherwise.
But then again, I don’t think they’re listening and I know they really don’t care…
That will get louder.
commented 2017-02-27 19:10:07 -0500
Good show, Ezra. Geert Wilders would be an excellent leader!
commented 2017-02-27 18:54:49 -0500
Thank you for getting this interview Ezra!
A major scoop.

Fortunately, pushback has started in the most important country in the Western World: the USA.
