Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Netherlands was one of the participants in a conference hosted by the organization Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF). Below is the statement he gave for the occasion.

Statement by Geert Wilders
Press conference Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF)
Milano, 29 January, 2016

I am extremely happy to be in Milan. Because this is the city which in 2005 awarded the late Oriana Fallaci, a true Italian hero, Milan’s highest award, the Ambrogino d’Oro.

She deserved it. She was one of Italy’s greatest and most courageous women and journalists. Whenever I come to Italy, I do so in honor of her: Oriana Fallaci, whose bravery in warning against the dangers of Islamization I greatly admire. Her book The Force of Reason — La Forza Della Ragione — was one the best books I have ever read. It was published in 2004 and inspired me to start my own political party that same year, a party that today — twelve years later — is by far is the biggest party in all the polls in The Netherlands with almost 30 percent of the votes.

Thank you Italy, thank you Oriana for the inspiration. I am very proud to have been awarded the Oriana Fallaci prize in Rome in 2009.

Today our civilization is still in danger, as a matter of fact worse than ever before. We are facing an existential threat.

You can see it everywhere, in all Western European countries. Our borders have been opened to Islamic mass immigration. And the consequences are terrible.

The costs are gigantic, the attacks horrible and the threat of terrorism has never been higher.

So we need to act.

That is why we are here today in Milan. With a message of strength and unity.

Together with my good friends from Italy, France, Austria, Belgium, the U.K. and other countries we have forged an alliance. An alliance with a historic mission.

Our mission is to save and defend our nations and our Western civilization, built on the legacy of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem. The survival of our freedom, identity and values are at stake.

My colleagues and I, we ring the bells of the revolution. A democratic and peaceful revolution to regain our national sovereignty. To stop the invasion.

To protect our own people, our women, our culture. We have to become the masters again of our own borders, our own budgets, our own destiny.

Our mission is to do what our governments fail to do. We say: Basta! Finita la commedia!

And there is good news. Ever more people – millions of people – join us. A patriot spring is on its way. The European elites are running our nations into the ground. We will not allow that. We will not accept that. The people will not accept that. The people will resist that.

The people no longer want politicians who are selling out their nation, ignoring the wishes of its citizens, and acting like politically correct appeasers and cowards.

What we need today is real leadership. Brave politicians, unlike the ones that currently misrepresent the people in so many fake parliaments, where they do exactly the opposite of what the majority of the people want. We say: enough is enough.

Most of us here are leading in the polls in our respective countries.

We are politically successful because we stand for the following five principles. The principles of the new patriotism.

One, we want to close our borders for mass immigration from Islamic countries and the asylum tsunami.

If I were to become Prime Minister of the Netherlands next year, I will close the Dutch borders at once.

Two, we must protect ourselves against the terrorist threat.

We do not want jihadis in our countries. And we must restore the safety of our citizens, especially our women. No more rape, no more sexual jihad. On New Year’s Eve in Cologne alone, over 1,000 women were assaulted, groped, raped. So far, 30 suspects have been caught. All of them North-Africans, and half of those asylum seekers.

This is unacceptable. Closing our borders is a major step towards more safety, too.

Three, we do not want billions of taxpayers’ money to be spent on Brussels, bailouts and asylum seekers. We want that money to be spent on our own people. In our own country.

Four, we choose national sovereignty instead of the EU. The capital of The Netherlands is Amsterdam, not Brussels. We will regain national sovereignty and get rid of the unelected European bureaucrats.

And five, last but not least, we want to stop the Islamization of our free societies. I say: no more. We chose freedom and will not compromise anymore.

It is time to halt the elites’ march of folly and save our countries. That is what people expect of us, that is why people support us, that is what needs to be done, and that is what we will do. That is our duty as true political leaders.

We will make our countries safe, sovereign and great again. And we will succeed. Because the people and the truth are on our side.

Let me remind you of something Oriana Fallaci once said. I quote: “It is a lie to say that the truth stays in the middle. No sir: Sometimes truth stays on one side only.” End of quote.

The truth, ladies and gentlemen, indeed, is on one side only. It is on our side. So, get used to it: We are the future.

  1. He speaks out the truth. Realistic and not afraid. He is the man for Holland as Trump Orban and others are for their country. God bless him and us Chtistians. United we stand united we fall.

  2. I find it interesting that several European countries have taken a harder attitude to muslim migrants. Holland recently suggested economic migrates be returned by ship to Turkey. Denmark charging migrants for services. Even Sweden saying up to 80,000 migrants who are not real asylum cases could be deported. The politicians have started to realize uncontrolled migration will destroy the economies and social structure of their countries and lead to their defeat at the next election.
    What a pity none had the courage of Australia’s Tony Abbot back in October, when they could have adopted a “turn back the boats” policy.

    • I am rather cynical about those politicians’ motivations in their apparently changing policies on immigration. They too can read the polls of which Mr. Wilders speaks. As far as I can tell, they have no particular desire to improve their societies and the lives of their fellow citizens. They do, however, wish to remain in power and if making some gestures, token or otherwise, aimed at addressing the migrant and Muslim immigrant problems gets them votes, then they are willing to do this. Simple political expediency and crude self-interest at work here.

    • This is all talk. They’ve verbally started taking a harder stance but fact is they won’t do anything and different people will have to be voted into office for any of this stuff to actually happen.

      Do not be fooled.

      • You are right, Nimrod. And I applaud Mr. Wilders — except for one thing.

        His “democratic and peaceful revolution” is not to be. The Muslims and the controlling powers will not allow it. We must live free — or die fighting.

        • I’m not so sure how well voting is going to work either. The willingness to rig elections by inviting in millions of new voters demonstrates the willingness to rig elections, and this willingness implies the willingness to rig elections through other means as well.

          • And the programmers will tell you (and have told you) how easy it is to fix elections with these fancy new Diebold automated voting systems. One greedy programmer is all it takes to throw a district to the preferred candidate.

    • Problem is once the news of deporting spreads, Muslims will rise up and mayhem will be the order of the day. I assume, rifles are stashed in various locations including mosques and the killing will begin. They have come very close to complete take over of the EU and will not back down now after accomplishing so much by invading these countries. We all know most of these invaders are not asylum cases. Western Europe’s future can turn on a dime, things are getting real dicey.

      • I don’t see how being so negative helps. The opposition is growing and the response will come when it is ready. The West knows how to fight and how to die, and more come to our side every day. That’s good news isn’t it?

        • I would rather that our politicians had listened to valid concerns about the consequences of mass immigration and Islamisation of our civilised nations. Yes, we can fight like no others and will sacrifice ourselves rationally for the greater good of our societies. I would rather have avoided this though.

          A war or battle is not just about winning – its about the price we have to pay to win.

    • Abbot was replaced by a left winger nobody voted for after constant smears by left wing media throughout his democratically elected leadership. Abbot was good. He even wanted to fight isis in Syria which was unfashionable at the time. New leader is a sycophant to fashionable media not what is right/correct.

  3. – “close border” – to whom? it is good to be more specific.
    I wouldn’t mind open borders for westerners.

    – “we choose national sovereignty instead of the EU”
    again, ask Saudis, Qataris, or mr Putin.
    they will support enthusiastically the idea of fragmented West, disbanding the EU and NATO.

    so the corrected set of priorities –

    – get back freedom of speech, and meaning of language.
    that starts in school education, and higher education. one needs new curricula, de-ideologization, redefining staff priorities and social duties.

    – increase, reform, train and redeploy army, intelligence, police and border control forces, basing on centralized command. the main goals – stopping the infiltration of enemy agents and incompatible opportunists from third world, and preventing weapons smuggling. the common defense doctrine must be updated, too.

    – drastic measures in foreign policy.
    cut all logistical, cultural, financial relations with countries practicing or/and promoting jihad and sharia. impose sanctions, boycotts. no more foreign funding for islamic institutions. no more visas, no foreign aid to pakistan anf hamas. coordinate the effort to even further pushing down oil/gas prices. establish preferred ally status for Israel.

    – develop and start implementing the cultural base, the program and the practice of New West – de-islamization will be part of it, but more broadly, that should include “people’s meritocracy” reforms – in local representation, MSM, taxation, charities, scientific R&D, healthcare, etc. the goal is – to curb and reduce all sorts of demagogue’s paradises, social parasitisms, and identity rackets.. there are too many.
    that also shoud include the “Germination+Separation” – he long term strategy of societal evolution.

    Wilders & Co seem to forget (or de-emphasizing?) that
    1. islam an muslims aren’t main opponents. the relativist, lazy, ignorant, mosaic-mentality postmodern West is.
    2. all above outlined measures will need centralized practical coordination – actually, global-scale. there is no place for narrow “patriotisms” here.

    • Your “solution” is a recipe for disaster.

      You advocate global action, which implies a multi-national enforcement mechanism, at the expense of national boundaries and national identities. That is by coincidence exactly what we have now.

      By giving more power to the meta-national bureaucrats (take the EU as an example), you allow bureaucratic moles to worm their way into power, unaccountable and unelected.

      In point of fact, we need to treat Islam differently in Islamic countries than in Western countries. In Western countries, the best way to deal with Islamization is total exclusion: no Muslims entering, period, except for diplomatic missions or temporary business matters. In Muslim countries, it’s really not the business of the West to interfere. The most common form of successful government in Muslim countries appears to be the secular dictator willing to take drastic measures to stay in power.

      The Western governments have damaged themselves, as well as the victim countries, by trying to impose the Western model of a democracy on a non-democratic society. I’m not entirely convinced the mistake was out of good will, but that’s another story altogether.

      • “multi-national enforcement mechanism.. That is by coincidence exactly what we have now.”

        not really – it isn’t’ working.
        recent attacks on Paris were planned and manned from Brussels, weapons smuggled most likely through Germany.
        it was utter failure of anti-terror, especially French.
        better coordination would help preventing it.

        on “unelected” issue – we live in interesting times.
        in particular, sometimes the safety of people, order on the streets will depend on who is in charge in locally deployed army and police.
        or who is in charge in local mosque, if former fail to fulfill their duties.
        neither are “elected”.

        there should be centralized armed force based and built by the people of good moral, professionalism, and trust.
        challenge is global, response must be global too.

        • And so, AY, this “global response” must be coordinated but by whom? That coordinating entity must have money and power, and that leads to a specific agenda toward a desired end usually resulting in more money and power.

          Perhaps a better solution is to dissolve the EU, with each state once again determining its sovereignty. Germany likes chaos? Germany can have its “integration.” Not so others. The EU, like Obama’s hope and change, is a failed social experiment. Perhaps Merkel’s insanity should be applauded.

          • defense component coordinated, roughly, by NATO, with extended anti-terror functions.

            social component – nobody knows for now.
            there might be deep dive, – disorder, loss, – before it emerges.

            the whole point is, – to curb “Money and Power” mode, facilitate Germination of the new mode, and Separate it from the old one. call it “Trust and Empathy” mode, or “People’s Meritocracy”.

            all signs of transformation are here – elites are in crisis, very shameful one, and people are fed up – by the erosion of freedoms, lies, luck of opportunities, and growingi social parasites, islam among them.

    • AY: Agree, Western Europeans are decadent and lazy, a bunch of slackers who need to wake up and think clearly on this problem that is getting more out of control daily. Wilders and others who are speaking out also need to push for each country to form their own military type police to protect the citizens because the local police are apathetic and turning the other way while crime increases.

  4. From one of your fans here in Perth, Australia. All the very best and I hope you become Prime Minister soon.- Neville.

    • Neville: How bad is the Muslim invasion in Australia now? Is it everywhere or only in certain areas? Is New Z having problems?

      • It’s hard to say, Laura. The mainstream media doesn’t report anything negative about Islam except when they have to. There are some parts of Melbourne and Sydney that are almost totally muslim inhabited. Our Government over all has done a fairly good job of securing our borders (helped by our sizable moat). New Zealand has an even lower muslim population and very few problems.

  5. Geert Wilders ,is a great admirer of both Trump and Marine Le Pen.If Trump wins it will be a huge boost for both Wilders and Le Pen

    • That’s reason enough to vote for Trump right there. And I chuckled out loud when I read this line from Wilders:

      “We will make our countries safe, sovereign and great again.

  6. “Better to die on your feet than live on your knees” EZ. A quote made for Cologne and beyond.

  7. Mr. Wilders is one of the heavy lifters. He is one of my heroes.

    “A patriot spring is on its way.”

    The “dirty” word in that sentence? “Patriot.” This among other words, “nation”, for example.

    I ask: what, if anything; how, if any way; when, if ever, can we solve our current dilemma and reverse the march toward conflagration when these notions are polluted beyond consideration within huge swaths of Westerners’ minds, particularly among those in high office, positions of power, throughout academia and pop-culture?

    • people want to defend their women, the future of their children, the right to live without fear in the land of their birth, the language, heritage, ethos, achievements..

      some call it patriotism, I call it common sense.

  8. Wilders is a good man. I hope he gets the support her deserves. I hope the people of the Netherlands go with him. There is nothing wrong about defending Europe against Islam, it is the most important thing. Go with Wilders, people of the Netherlands…

  9. We may fall united, but the expressions is “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.” This is the motto of the state of Kentucky but one we would all be advised to follow.

  10. Bless him! There is not a moment to lose. The bien pensant quiver and grovel, not in trying to do their jobs but rather to protect their jobs at any cost.

  11. Thinking of it, Muslims are doing what imam told them to do. They are raping Europe into higher fertility. Why are we denying their services?

      • I actually think that you have a very poor sense of sarcasm. Besides, what does Merkel care? She is the [despised subordinate] of Soros. Down the toilet drain forever with Germany, if this is what it takes to satisfy Merkel’s ambitions. If she has a shred of conscience left, she can regret later, that’s fine. The outcome is the same.

  12. Love Geert Wilders! Great man, brave man! I’m a dutch woman from Eindhoven and I agree 100% with everything Mr. Wilders said in this article. The muslims are ruining my country with their violence and barbaric traditions, one hear and see things which were unthinkable 30 years ago, wherever there is a large number of “refugees” the crime is rampant, sex offenses are common, streets are dirty, houses look ruinous.. Political correctness and class/race guilt have corrupted the minds and souls of many dutch people to the point they think that self defense is a crime. And muslims are not the only problem there is also an increasing number of central and south american gangs in the streets and also non muslim africans whose uncivilized ways leave a lot to be desired, in sum a third world wave washing over us.

    • Heartily agree. Minutes of EU meeting held on the 13 January officially refute ANY connection between the NYE mass sexual assaults and rapes with migration. A stupid German woman displays a sign stating she is willing to swap racists for rapists
      and other equally deluded women still hand out roses to new
      (potional rapists) arrivals, the gay community fully support this Muslim influx ( who would throw them off high buildings or stone them to death given half the chance). A mega mosque is being constructed ( financed by the Saudis?) which will dwarf the magnificent Cologne cathedral and no doubt services will be drowned out by Muslim call to prayers. Immigrants have,mugged, sexually assaulted, raped, Fare dodged, shop lifted, masterbated and voided their bowels in swimming pools and in public, murdered the poor girl in Sweden, presented themselves as children when obviously adults, some are middle aged men “married” to pregnant 13year old girls (paedophiles by any other name) The list goes on and on but it is ONLY the likes of Wilders, Le Pen, Farage and others who have the courage to speak out! Forget reliance on your incumbent governments, they are selling their citizens down the river, just look at the porcine Cameron boot licking the odious Merkel creature. As Geert had said ” there is no excuse for looking away” The public must find the courage to support those who speak out against this rape of Europe and bring Merkel and her acolytes to justice.

  13. The west, Christendom, is facing an existential threat. While it often fails to live up the values it claims to honour, and while those transgressions set the stage for this crisis, there is at least hope that it will finally honour in action what it hallows in rhetoric. Muslim cultures aspire to no such high values, but only barbarism and conquest. The US and NATO need to understand that they are reaping what they have sown and stop living by the sword.

    They must rescue endangered minorities they have been ignoring and disengage from the Muslim world. The Muslim religion is not and will never be compatible with democracy and human rights

    • What the West must do is save itself. What we have is too precious to lose.

      We must stop muslim immigration, its demographic invasion and circumvent the threat that Islam has become within our nations.

      We must also consider and act accordingly in regard to a resolution after this existential threat is dealt with. We may have to be justifiably paranoid in avoiding any New World Order type manipulation into a depopulating world war and in implementing new forms of governance that truly reflects the sentiment of the native peoples of a nation and how they wish to live their lives.

  14. Trumps seems going to win. if he, of some prominent right wing party will win. it will be domino effect.

    Unfortunately, the domino effect will not reach italy. The most prominent party here are Pd, a communist party (ruled by ‘Pinocchio’ Renzi) and M5S (ruled by the, most likely crypto-muslim, Beppe Grillo), that sympathizes for ISIS and Khomeini and is strongly antisemitic.
