Geert Wilders’ whirlwind visit to Vienna yesterday was action-packed from the very morning. A massive power failure in the Netherlands almost prevented him from coming, but after a slight delay, he arrived to the ornate Austrian parliament under heavy police protection, as planned.

For ten long and lonely years, Geert has been fighting to preserve the values of his country, The Netherlands. He has been vilified and demonized, denounced endlessly, but he battles on regardless. The constant death threats on his life necessitate round-the-clock security.

Inside the Austrian parliament, Wilders first had a private talk with his friend and ally Heinz-Christian Strache, chairman of the Austrian Freedom Party (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, FPÖ). They then hosted a joint press conference under the title “Islamization: The threat to Europe”, which drew heavy press attention from the press. Wilders’ statement at the press conference (in English) can be viewed here.

After further media interviews, Wilders proceeded to the imperial castle Hofburg, where he spoke for half an hour to a room full to the last chair (and more), with over 1,000 participants.

In his speech (held in German — the full English text has been posted here), Wilders stressed that the threat of Islamization is by no means being stopped by ostrich-like tactics of the leaders of the European Union, but is actually proceeding at a frightening pace. Wilders quoted statistics about the proliferation of Salafist Islamic organisations, about the number of Muslims supporting violence against non-Muslims, and the threat by the Islamic State to place large numbers of terrorists among asylum seekers entering Europe.

For these reasons and more, Geert Wilders demands that immigration from Islamic countries be halted immediately, that no more mosques should be built, and that we must take control of what is being taught in Islamic schools.

Islam cannot be reformed, he stressed, and for the simple reason that we cannot separate Islam from the Koran, neither can we take Muhammad out of Islam. Therefore there can never be a moderate Islam, Wilders said in his speech.

Wilders is steadfast that our Western culture, based on Christianity, Judaism and Humanism, is categorically superior to the Islamic culture. In the interest of everyone, immigrants should adopt our values, not the other way around.

In the current confrontation with the Islamic State and the problem of those wishing to leave their countries to join it, he has one thing to say: “Let them go, but never let them return.” Take away their passport and citizenship. Once these young people have been radicalized, no amount of intervention or counselling is going to change their minds. So rather bid them goodbye and good riddance, for the West is not their home.

His resistance against Islamization, mass immigration, lying media (Lügenpresse) and hostile EU elites cannot be left to politicians alone. Wilders emphasizes that preserving our liberties is a responsibility for every citizen because, as he says, “time is running out for the West.”

There is much work to be done. Because we are the defenders of freedom and security, we have an historic duty. Our generation has been entrusted with a huge task: to keep the flame of liberty burning and oppose the Islamization of our societies. He said without exaggeration that the future of human civilization depends on us. Now is the time when everyone in the West must do his duty.

He concluded by reminding us that WE are the torchbearers for freedom; that WE are the torchbearers for democracy and that WE are the torchbearers for a civilization that is far superior to any other civilization on earth, at all times in history.

5 thoughts on “Geert Wilders at the Gates of Vienna

  1. Mr. Wilders is telling the truth. This moment in history is similar to the Churchill moment during WWII. If Europe falls, the west falls and western civilization will have a very hard time coming back again.

    On the other hand, if the Muslims win, Europe will be like a desert in the middle-east and everything will go, including western civilization. Nobody will read anything except the Koran, nobody will know anything and women will continue to be treated like cattle.

  2. Geert is not fighting for the wrights of his country. He is a racist and has gone to court many times for his racist comments about Islam and marroco

    • Ah, an indoctrinated commenter. We don’t get many, but they can be recognized easily enough since the first epithet they fling is “racist”. The first tedious epithet.

      Seriously, can’t you mount a more robust argument against someone with whom you disagree? “Racist” – which the Baron calls, Elmer Fudd style, “Waaycist” is so very 1990s. Using it is the sure sign of a derivative mind. In fact, it is so over-used it’s one of those “cry wolf” words…people yawn and move on.

      I hope Geert Wilders succeeds in generating a new spirit in Europe, a spirit of self-preservation and pride in people who don’t seem to have much of either anymore.

  3. There is no such thing as radical Islam. It is all Islam and the radical actions of the followers of Islam are only doing what they are supposed to do. Koranic verses: 98.6 “…Jews and Christians will abide in the fires of hell…” 47:4 “…strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them.” this is why Muslims can behead the infidel (Chrisitians and Jews and anyone else not Muslim) and play soccer. Also 8:12: “…cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.” Beheading and shredding of and chopping off fingers. This is all FUNDAMENTAL systemic Islamic doctrine.
