I suppose that I should explain this blog a little bit; its purpose in the blogosphere. The purpose of this blog is to form a sort of centralized source for coverage of and opinion on the Geert Wilders case. Geert Wilders is a Dutch politician, radically and -arguably- hatefully opposed to Islam, who the Dutch government has decided to prosecute under ill-defined ‘hate-speech’ charges.
The last time that I checked, a religion, be it Islam, or Christianity, or Hinduism, or whathaveyou, was not able to set the tone for what discourse is and is not acceptable. If religion is setting the pace now, in Holland, then that is not acceptable.
So what this blog will be doing is linking to various people who are talking about this case as it develops, be they bloggers or journalists. The only central theme will be Geert Wilders. The only central political opinion will be freedom of speech – there are no other agendas. This is not necessarily an anti-Islamic website – merely a site dedicated to our freedom to speak as we please, about whichever religion we please.
