I’ll give him credit. He has balls (and ridiculously bad hair). But he’s standing up to all kinds of sewage from the oh-so-moderate and peaceful Muslims, who wouldn’t even pause in at best censoring him and shutting him up, or at worst killing him merely for speaking out.
Threats of murder. Fears of riots and religious violence. Demands for censorship. Politicians in hiding, fearing for their lives. A government preparing for the worst.
It’s happening right now in a most unlikely place … the Netherlands, once regarded as Europe’s quietest and most stable nation.
And it’s all happening because of a 10-minute movie that hasn’t even been made yet.
It’s the work of Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, who calls his movie “a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamicization.” Wilders plans to present it to his country on television sometime next month.
“People who watch the movie will see that the Koran is very much alive today, leading to the destruction of everything we in the Western world stand for, which is respect and tolerance,” Wilders, the 41-year-old leader of the right-wing Party for Freedom, said in a telephone interview.
“The tsunami of Islamicization is coming to Europe. We should come to be far stronger.”
How long before Wilders has to hire bodyguards and go into hiding due to the backlash of violence directed toward him for expressing his views on film?
