Wilders, January 21: ” A Black Day for Freedom”

22 01 2009

Via the International Free Press Society:


We just received this statement from the PVV (Party for Freedom):

Geert Wilders: court decision is an all-out assault on freedom of speech

Survival of Freedom Party in jeopardy

The Hague, January 21, 2009

The Freedom Party (PVV) is shocked by the Amsterdam Court of Appeal’s decision to prosecute Geert Wilders for his statements and opinions. Geert Wilders considers this ruling an all-out assault on freedom of speech.

Geert Wilders: “Apparently this is The Netherlands today. If you speak out you might be prosecuted. To participate in public debate has become a dangerous activity.”

“If I have to appear in court, not only I will be prosecuted, but also hundreds of thousands of Dutch citizens who reject the Islamisation of the West. In Dutch Parliament only the Party for Freedom is willing to speak up for the preservation of our culture and our many freedoms.”

The Freedom Party leader now faces legal proceedings that will probably take years to conclude and will also involve enormous legal fees.

“We depend on small donations. The Freedom Party is the only party in Parliament that does not accept any government funding. This court decision jeopardizes the very existence of the Freedom Party. We simply cannot afford the enormous legal expenses.”

“This is a black day for freedom.”

The IFPS has been covering this very well, so check in with them for updates on the case, as I’m sure they’ll be providing them.

I have watched FITNA and to me it appears to be a collection of newsreels, i. e. a documentary. What is the problem? Don’t the Muslims and apparently the Dutch government want to know the truth? It sure makes you think that someone is trying to hide something at all cost.
