Free speech – the true indicator of freedom!

Geert Wilders, one of the bravest men on the planet, will be tried for incitement of hatred in the Netherlands.  Since when is hate a crime? It is an emotion, like joy or sadness.

The “tolerant, peaceful Muslims” are offended by his movie, Fitna, which used their own Koran and video of actual incitement of hatred by Muslims, to prove that Isalm is here to take over the West and immigration should be stopped.  

It is a scary day when a Western government appeases those of an ideology (dressed as a religion) that have a mandate to subjugate and rule over them.  This is insanity, but England is about done and America and Canada are in their sights.

From Foxnews:  

A member of parliament in the Netherlands who has been charged with “insulting” Muslims says he fears he will be found guilty and sent to prison in only a few months.

An appeals court on Wednesday overturned a previous decision by prosecutors not to charge Geert Wilders, and ordered that he stand trial.

“The decision of the court today was so strong that there is a real chance unfortunately that there will be a guilty verdict,” Wilders told FOXNews.com. “In fact, it was so bluntly motivated that it already looks like a verdict instead of just ordering the public prosecutor to start a trial.”

Wilders, who produced a controversial film that was highly critical of the Koran last year, says he faces a maximum of two years in prison if convicted. He said he had expected to be charged, and he has retained legal assistance from a U.S.-based nonprofit to help him defend himself.

See it if you can find it – www.Atlasshrugs.com  has it.

Prosecutors initially declined last year to charge the right wing politician after he issued his short film, “Fitna,” which juxtaposes Koranic verses over footage of violence committed by Islamic terrorists.

But, the Netherlands allows private citizens to petition the courts to compel prosecution. In Wilders’ case, eight parties, including a politician from an opposing party, asked the courts to force prosecutors to bring criminal charges.

EIGHT people!

A three-judge appeals panel on Wednesday ruled that Wilders’ insults to Islam were so egregious that the principle of free speech was not sufficient defense.

He used their own texts and video to prove his point.  His point is being made by this very process, but the blindness of the multi-cultis is astounding.

“The court considers [Wilders’ film] so insulting for Muslims that it is in the public interest to prosecute Wilders,” a summary of the court’s decision said. The court explained that Wilders’ claims in “Fitna” and other media statements were “one-sided generalizations … which can amount to inciting hatred.”

Wilders on Wednesday defiantly stood by the public statements that could put him in prison.

“I lost my freedom already four and a half years ago in October 2004, when my 24-hour police protection started because of threats by Muslims in Holland and abroad to kill me,” he said.

“So of course I don’t want to go to jail as a criminal, but I don’t fear losing my freedom since I already lost my freedom in 2004.”

Where do you find politicians that would say that?  This man is a statesman!

 

I wish I could say that was all, but sadly it’s not.  Susanne Winter, an Austrian parliamentarian has just been CONVICTED of incitement of Muslims. 

Somebody tell me what doesn’t incite Muslims.  Dogs, pigs, alcohol, bacon, skin, catoons, Jews, Christians, Santa Claus, photographs, statuary, bibles, missionaries, hair, music, art, dancing, jokes, TRUTH about their “religion.”

This comes from The Earth Times (via www.Jihadwatch.org)

Vienna – Austrian far-right parliamentarian Susanne Winter was convicted Thursday of incitement because of her anti-Muslim statements, including the claim that Islam’s prophet Mohammed was a paedophile. A court in Winter’s home town of Graz also found the 51-year-old politician guilty of humiliating a religion. She was sentenced to a fine of 24,000 euros (31,000 dollars) euros and a suspended prison term of three months, Austrian news agency APA reported.

She dared speak the truth about Mohammed’s pedophilic marriage?  A tradition still followed today in Islamic countries that emulate the examples of the “perfect man.”

Folks, these Religion of Peacers are using our own freedoms to bring us to our knees.  Mohammed commands that all people in all the world shall worship only Allah or die.  Got it?  I’ll repeat it in shorter form – Allah or die.  Better?

It’s really not all that hard to understand if your brain is functioning.

America, of all places, should stand behind these two brave souls as a nation as well as individuals.

Tell your friends what’s going on.  Send them to www.jihadwatch.org. It could be a matter of life or death.
