“You can’t win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.”
After Geert Wilders’ final remarks in the Amsterdam court today, the judges will be making a very big mistake if they convict him.
But they may be too stupid to realize that.
I’m not sure its stupidity that would lead to a conviction. I think its a problem as old as man. Sanctimony, perfect moral certainty that the judges are right and all things that must be sacrificed to convict Wilders are worth it as he is such a threat to the official position and official culture of The Netherlands as they define it.
The Archbishop Cranmer blog covered the speech today, and I think one of the comments is worth repeating here:
Gert [sic] Wilders is only slated as “far right populist” by left oriented socialists still struggling to hold on to their concept of controlling the masses. They see him as competition.
As the Fabian socialists have infiltrated most areas including the courts, they consider themselves strong enough to convict a man for saying what he thinks.
They have badly miscalculated.
If they convict him then the Kraken wakes. If they acquit him then the Kraken wakes.
Me thinks the verdict has already been rendered, they just need to legitimize it via this circus of a trial.
Not saying the verdict is guilty, just reflecting on the drama of it all.
