This week’s Wilders Round-up

9 03 2009

That’s right. I’m making this a weekly thing. Settling in for the long haul, folks.

Time for links:

the “silent” majority no more – An intimate evening with Geert Wilders in Manhattan (2-24-09) Video and pics:

Tuesday evening, February 24, The Silent Majority (TSM) was  honored to attended a small, private gathering in Manhattan at which Geert Wilders screened ‘Fitna’.

This inspiring and intimate evening with Geert Wilders was hosted by the chapter head of the newly formed Manhattan branch of ACTforamerica.org. The Silent Majority was invited along with many others amongst whom were members of The United American Committee, Stop The Madrassa and Gathering of Eagles.

The ballroom was electrified.

We turned a corner Friday night. Something really big happened. Something historic. In the face of a complacent, lethargic Conservative leadership, we seized the moment. The individual took up the mantle for the freedoms we hold so dear. It was the first blog event of this kind and its astounding success tells us a good deal about our mobilizing forces in the future.

The evening with Geert Wilders exceeded even our wildest expectations. Having not done anything like this before did not stop me from seeing that the over 8,000 attendees (according to my cabbie) were clueless about what the critical, most damaging issues of the day are — freedom of speech, Islamic supremacism, the war — none of which were being addressed at CPAC.

I was unaware when I was planning the Wilders event that there would be such a dearth of real issues discussed at CPAC — so the evening with Geert Wilders was kismet. Wilders would be at, not of, CPAC. And was he ever! Much thanks to Dr. Andrew Bostom, Robert Spencer and David Horowitz for helping me finance the event.

The event called for 6:00. At 5: 30 they started lining up. And up and up. I ran upstairs to grab some poster board I snagged from a sad, corporate event (I figured I could write on the back, make signs pointing to where we were — the room was very hard to find), and I when I emerged from the elevator the joint was jumpin’! The line was stretched as far as the eye could see. We were out the promenade, through the lobby, out the door.

I had no idea if I would have 50 or 200 patriots — this was just a blog event. Just a blog event indeed. I hardly expected the line (six feet deep) to grow and grow and snake out through the promenade — down  and through the main lobby. If you are familiar with the Omni Shoreham, you know what I am talking about.

The Boston Globe – Islam and freedom of speech:

Geert Wilders is a member of the Dutch Parliament and head of the Freedom Party. In 2008 he released “Fitna,” a controversial film about the Koran and jihadist violence. Wilders was condemned as an anti-Muslim agitator but also hailed as a defender of Western values and free speech. In January, a Dutch court ordered Wilders prosecuted for allegedly inciting hatred against Islam. Last month he was invited to screen “Fitna” at Westminster, but the British government barred him from entering the country. He was recently interviewed by Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby, who prepared the following edited excerpts:

Q: You’ve said that England today is more Chamberlain than Churchill. Explain what you mean.

A: Well, Chamberlain was the biggest appeaser to a totalitarian ideology called fascism. Now we face the threat of another totalitarian ideology called Islam, at least according to me. And instead of defending our freedom, defending our values, when I was invited a few weeks ago to show “Fitna” in the House of Lords, they denied me entry to the United Kingdom.

Q: The letter from the British home secretary said: “Your statements about Muslims and their beliefs . . . would threaten community harmony, and therefore public security, in the UK.”

A: What really happened is that she was pressured. In the English press, there was a lot of news that Lord Ahmed [Nazir Ahmed, a British peer] threatened to have 10,000 Muslims demonstrating in front of Westminster.

Q: If you were allowed into the country.

A: Yes. And this is what I meant by Chamberlain. The UK government is giving in, appeasing the enemy. They should stand up and say: We might not like the political view of this guy, but he should be allowed to come here and say it.

Q: In the film, you show quotations from the Koran, together with video of statements and actions by Muslim extremists.

A: Exactly. I used reality. It was really made by radical Muslims themselves. I just combined the pictures with the source. If they don’t like the movie, they don’t like what they do themselves. At the end of “Fitna,” it talks about Islamic ideology – that we should defeat the threat of Islamic ideology. For that to not be allowed in the United Kingdom, to be prosecuted in my own country, is an absolute outrage.

Selima I, who suffers from delusions, had been sentenced to compulsory psychiatric care but the appeal court ruled there was more chance of successful treatment if she was treated as an outpatient.

The woman, a librarian from Tilburg, was arrested in January 2007 at the computer she used to send death threats to Wilders.

Europe News – Dutch politician claims incitement case based on misquotation :

Amsterdam. Controversial far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders claimed in an interview Thursday that a court had based its decision to prosecute him for discrimination and incitement to hatred on false quotes.

Wilders, famous for his anti-Islam film Fitna and refused entry to Britain last month, confirmed he had filed an appeal with the High Court of Justice against a district court’s decision to prosecute him.

In an interview with Dutch daily newspaper De Telegraaf, the leader of the Freedom Party (PVV) said the district court had based its decision on remarks attributed to him, but in reality originating from other people. In other instances he was simply misquoted, he said.

“People who complained about me, misquoted me,” Wilders said. “Other remarks were in fact made by other people. But the court has adopted these quotes as mine.”

The Dutch legislator specified a quote about the Koran from the late Italian journalist and author Oriana Fallaci. Wilders said the Amsterdam district court referred to the remark as his.

I have written three blog posts about this incident, and have just received 3 replies from MPs and Euro MPs forwarded to me from other bloggers. If anyone else has a reply from their MP yet, please also forward to me. I will update the page as more information comes in. It also has links to other blogs and youtube videos of MPs defending and supporting the decision.

Oh god! Are the rightist, anti-Muslim (used to be anti-black/anti-Jewish (now decidely anti-Palestinian) /anti-Gay) going to latch on to Geert as a hero of our times?

Are we going to get the “Boycott McDonalds for their promotion of homosexuality” “family values” crowd promoting Fitna 24/7 ?

Let’s have some decent, intelligent documentaries about radical Islam – indeed, plenty have been made and shown by the likes of the BBC and Channel 4 (uk) over the years.

Geert – he’s just a politician, y’know – the anti-Muslim populist agenda is going to be huge over the next few years and the right will be happy cashing in- but, please, my right wing chums, try and hold on to your powers of reasoning.

I know a lot of you need something/someone to hate/fear – remember how mixed race marriage once made you incredibly angry?

When Geert and co. are out – it’s time for the masses to stay sharp.
