Geert Wilders: Show the Muhammad Cartoons in Parliament!

Below is the English-language version of a letter sent today by Geert Wilders to the speaker of the lower house of the Dutch parliament:

  The Hague
May l8th, 2015

Dear Madam Speaker, dear Anouchka,

In early May, I gave a speech at an exhibition of Muhammad cartoons in the American town of Garland, Texas.

This exhibition took place at the same location in Garland where, last January, after the assassination of the editors of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, Islamic organizations had held a meeting to protest against Muhammad cartoons.

As you could read in the media, shortly after my speech, the exhibition in Garland was attacked by two terrorists. Their attack was intended to make the display of Muhammad cartoons impossible.

The only way to make it clear that we will never allow the terrorists to win, is to do exactly what they want to prevent us from doing. I therefore ask you to give permission to show the Garland cartoons at an exhibition in the parliamentary building.

Looking forward to a quick reply,

  1. See, this is a much better venue than a private event open to the general public.

    I doubt they’ll go for it. But a man can dream.

  2. He’s got [masculine reproductive organs], hasn’t he, Geert Vilders. It will be interesting and instructive to see how the establishment responds to his line of reasoning. I don’t know whether or not this is wishful thinking, but I can’t help but sense that the status quo, the current world view, call it what you will, is struggling under the weight of its own inherent contradictions. I’m looking forward to hearing the Dutch establishment’s response to Mr Wilders; I wonder how consistent it will be?

  3. It won’t happen and Geert does not expect it to happen but his game-play is sound.

    It might happen though!…Wouldn’t that be a turn-up?!

    • I think he’s put Madame Chairwoman between a rock and a hard place. Geert wins by pushing the envelope, always pushing…

      Meanwhile, at The Blaze, an essay on the skullduggish Hillary Clinton’s attempts to outlaw such slander:

      HRC invented that term, “The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” to describe anyone who dared to question her husband’s obvious satyriasis – which is still going full tilt even at his age – and in particular his willingness to lie under oath.

      It was his odious lying that caused him to lose his law license for five years when he left office – though the MSM tried to make a case for prudish Republicans disliking his sexual acrobatics.

      • See, this is the crux of the issue.

        If the CounterJihad simply takes the position that “Motoons are free speech/press and that’s that”, then a vital opportunity is lost. We need to instead engage the argument that incitement to violence may not be free speech, and turn that around to question whether it is the Motoons or the Koran which represents such incitement.

        A graphical depiction, by its nature, pushes the boundaries of what can be considered ‘speech’ as such. And establishing those boundaries is essential if we are to curtail the criminal conspiracy implicit in a widespread advocacy of the murder of those who fail to cooperate with the crimes lauded by the Koran.

        If I could negotiate a ban on both Motoons and advocacy of the Koran, I would take it in a flash. I like Motoons, but not as much as I like the idea of prohibiting hate Imams. That said, I think that it is more realistic to attempt to secure a ban on advocacy of the Koran by pointing out that Motoons are really harmless and there is no reason to ban them.

        But here’s the thing…I believe that Motoons really are harmless and don’t hurt anyone’s interests…particularly the interests of Koranic hate Imams. It’s like Japanese politicians visiting shrines commemorating the ‘heroism’ of Japanese war criminals…this is not something that actually hurts anyone, but rather only benefits those who need Japan to be regarded as villainous (and let’s face it, seeing Japanese politicians as unapologetically evil is something I like myself).
