From our Flemish correspondent VH comes this report about the recent attack on Geert Wilders at Little Green Footballs:
Here is a Dutch response to the latest Charles Johnson scandal.
He keeps unmasking himself as the sock puppet of European fascists like Antifa and Blokwatch. He demands that Geert Wilders comply with the demands of Master CJ himself, an ignorant uninformed blogger, to join the “cordon sanitaire” against Vlaams Belang.
Geert Wilders did not reply to his pathetic email, and is now cursed and threatened by CJ: “I will no longer support him even to the extent I described in this email”. CJ, who has no idea of what is going on in Europe, writes to Wilders: “I’ve done enough research [sic!] into the group to convince me that their current pose of moderation is a false front.”
Duns Ouray, a noted writer for HetVrijeVolk.com (and who is from the group that worked with Theo van Gogh), responds (in English) at HVV:
The curious case of Charles Johnson
Admittedly, Charles Johnson has earned his stripes as a blogger. But now, he gets a little bit ahead of himself.
Charles Johnson has written Geert Wilders an e-mail, to which Wilders has never responded. This, according to Charles “speaks volumes”. It is evidence that Wilders is becoming “more extreme.”
Charles is right. Anybody not replying to their e-mail is well underway to becoming an extremist. It is a historical fact that genocidists like Hitler, Stalin and Mao never answered a single e-mail. So, there!
In fact, I remember writing Charles an e-mail a couple of years ago. And I believe that he never replied. Which, of course, “speaks volumes”…

All-knowing Charles Johnson also mentions “that the charge that Wilders is pandering to bigots and haters is true.” Again, I take my hat off to Johnson. From California, Charles has an opinion on the legal and moral merits of this case which is governed by Dutch law.
I’m reminded of the words of the great philosopher Clint Eastwood: “Opinions are like a**holes, everybody has got one.”
VH adds this comment:
The Charles Johnson email reminds me of a letter written by the former PvdA (Socialists) fraction leader and then-mayor of Groningen, Jacques Wallage in 2003. Wallage wrote his letter to the fraction leader of the VVD (center-right liberals) in parliament, Jozias van Aartsen, urging him to remove Ayaan Hirsi Ali from the VVD party and thus from parliament.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali had visited an Islamic school and openly questioned Islam there. Jacques Wallage, who himself is one of the architects of the mass immigration in the Netherlands wrote to Van Aartsen:
How on earth it comes to the mind of a member of parliament to make sneering comments on the god of the Muslims (“where is Allah then, I see him nowhere”) in front of young children, is a mystery to me.
I urge you to make such efforts that the poisoning of the social debate by Ayaan Hirsi Ali will stop.
With confidence that you will not let this fester, kind regards,
