Who Will Rid Me Of This Turbulent Blond? Round Three.

I’ve dusted off the “Free Geert banner” for this post. Even though its time has not quite arrived, it looks like it will be needed soon enough, and I want to be ready for it.

More than three years after its last attempt, the Dutch government is ready to have another go at Geert Wilders. Since the Netherlands is a modern, advanced, enlightened democracy, the police can’t just roust him out of bed in the middle of the night and hustle him in off to the Lubyanka in a Black Maria for a quick neck shot in the cellars.

No, they have to go through the correct legal forms. First they have to find a proper charge — in this case, “insulting a population group with respect to their race and of incitement to discrimination and hatred”. Then they have to round up all the usual witnesses, both lefties and enrichers, to affirm how hateful the defendant is. Then they convict him, and even if he doesn’t get thrown in the slammer with all those peaceful Moroccan criminals, his political career will be kaput.

Or such is the plan. But this will be the third such show trial, and the first two didn’t work out quite the way the nomenklatura planned: Mr. Wilders mounted a smart, effective defense, and was acquitted.

We’ll see what happens this time. But it looks like Round Three is coming up.

The PVV sent out the following brief notice this morning:

Wilders: Scandalous decision of the Public Prosecutor

PVV leader Geert Wilders finds it incomprehensible that the Public Prosecutor has identified him as a suspect.

Wilders: “It is a scandal. While the world is on fire, the Public Prosecutor is targeting a Member of Parliament who draws attention to the problems. It would be better if the Public Prosecutor spend more time focusing on Dutch jihadists who leave for Syria. More than three quarters of them are Moroccans. This decision is absurd.”

And here’s the report from Dutch News:

Geert Wilders is a Formal ‘Suspect’ For Anti-Moroccan Chants

Public prosecutors have ‘invited’ PVV leader Geert Wilders for questioning in connection with remarks he made about Moroccans last year and consider him to be a formal suspect, the department said on Thursday.

The department said in a statement Wilders is ‘suspected of having insulted a population group with respect to their race and of incitement to discrimination and hatred’.

A longer article appeared in The Appeal-Democrat:

Anti-Islam Lawmaker Investigated for Hate Speech

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch prosecutors say they are investigating anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders on suspicion of inciting hatred and discrimination against Moroccans in the Netherlands.

Among comments under investigation is an election speech in March this year in which he asked supporters if they wanted more or fewer Moroccans. In response, they chanted “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!”

It is not the first time the controversial legislator has tested the limits of liberal Dutch free speech laws. In 2011, Wilders was tried and acquitted of inciting hatred against Muslims.

Prosecutors announced Thursday that they have called Wilders in for questioning, but have not charged him with any crime.

Wilders calls the decision scandalous and says prosecutors should concentrate on investigating Dutch citizens, including Moroccans, who travel to Syria to fight.

Stay tuned. There will be more to come soon enough.

  1. To pose a question to supporters on whether they would want more or fewer Moroccans in their midst is inciting hatred? A simple one worded answer to a simple question is inciting hatred? The law is very specific on what incitement means, there was no urging on, no stimulation or prompting to action, just a simple question, and by that very definition what Wilders asked at that meeting was not an act of incitement! The real issue here is that no one is now permitted to ‘discriminate’ on who they would wish to live with which is really inciting stupidity by the state through the urging, stimulation or prompting to comply with such thinking under full force of the law, such stupidity that even a simpleton could pick up on. And rather than deal with, or at least discount the issues raised by Wilders, the political class chooses instead to silence him through charges that makes a mockery of the law and individual liberty. That is sheer political cowardice under a fascist regime that it is now on open display in the Netherlands.

  2. Interesting piece as to the tactics employed by the left in Europe as they seem to match those used by the left in the US. A Texas District Attorney just recently lost his case against former Speaker of the House Tom Delay as the charges were proven to be baseless. And another Texas DA, just recently arrested for driving while impaired (films of her arrest appeared on the internet), was involved in filing charges against current governor Rick Perry of Texas. A judge examined the suit and refused to proceed with the indictment. It seems the left will use any tactic to destroy its opponents.

  3. They’ve ‘invited’ him to come in for ‘questioning’?

    Ignore them. Or else tell them to go **** themselves.

    They don’t want an explanation, they don’t want anything except ‘evidence’ they can use against him. So decline their ‘invitation’.

    Give them NOTHING.

    • Off course Wilders will not answer any of their “questions”. Wilders did nothing wrong. He was exercising his free speech “rights”.

      The PVV party program is very clear. No immigrants from non- Western countries allowed in. No immigrants from islamic countries should enter the country.That includes Moroccans.

      It is now punishable to ask questions about ones own political agenda in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is a dictatorship disguised as a democracy.

  4. Another thing: Isn’t it about time these faceless creatures were named and shamed? The evil beings behind this nonsense should be identified and every detail of their lives examined under a microscope – isn’t it long overdue for them to be given a taste of their own medicine?

  5. “Didst thou not mark the king, what words he spake,
    ‘Have I no friend will rid me of this living fear?’
    Was it not so?”
    – Exton

    When Exton informed Henry that he murdered Richard II as he Henry desired, Henry responded:

    “They love not poison that do poison need,
    Nor do I thee: though I did wish him dead,
    I hate the murderer, love him murdered.”
    – Henry Bolingbroke (King Henry IV)

    From Richard II – Shakespeare

  6. At the same time that the Public Prosecutor (PP) decided to designate Geert Wilders as a suspect of a hate crime the PP also dicided not to designate prominent Labour Party (PvdA) politicians Spekman and Samson suspects. Even though Labour Party leader called violent crime a “Moroccan ethnic monopoly”. Even though Spekman called for “humiliating Moroccan criminals to discorage them”.

    Wilders is almost unique in Western politics in constantly showing the failing of multi-culturalism as a political ideology. The news constantly features stories that illustrate his point.

    At the same time that the PP designated Wilders a suspect Wesley a 15 y.o. pupil of the Borculo College secondary school in Voorburg, The Netherlands was stabbed to death. The internet has it that the stabber is a bloke called “Antoni” who is of …. Morrocan origin.

    In other news weekly magazine “Nieuwe Revue” today features a cover story about anonymous policemen who work with a Dutch television crime show “Opsporing Verzocht.” The policemen complain that there is pressure coming from the political level to show fewer crime suspect of Moroccan and other non-western origins.

    Interesting week newswise.
