Update: The PVV sends this email address to which entrants may send their cartoons: firstname.lastname@example.org
Geert Wilders is planning to hold a Mohammed cartoon contest in the Dutch Parliament later this year. The PVV says it has obtained approval for the event; it will be interesting to see if the Dutch government finds a way to prevent it from happening.
Bosch Fawstin, the winner of the 2015 Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas, will serve as judge. He’s an excellent choice for that position.
The PVV sent out this press release today:
International Muhammad Cartoon Contest to Be Organized in Dutch Parliament
Geert Wilders MP, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV), the second biggest party in the Dutch Parliament and the largest opposition party in the Netherlands, is going to organize an international Muhammed cartoon contest.
The Dutch Counter-terrorism Agency NCTV had just given the green light to organize a Muhammad cartoon contest in the secured PVV quarters of Dutch Parliament later this year.
Mr. Wilders has invited American cartoonist Bosch Fawstin, winner of a similar contest in Garland, TX, in May 2015, to act as a judge in the contest.
Geert Wilders MP: “Freedom of speech is threatened, especially for Islam critics. We should never accept that. Freedom of speech is our most important freedom.”
More information will be provided soon.
Below are excerpts from a Reuters article about this Islamophobic event that adds some extra-special MSM spin to the story:
Dutch anti-Islam party to hold Prophet Mohammad cartoon competition
(Reuters) — The Freedom Party of Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders will hold a competition of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad, it said on Tuesday.
The party said the plan to hold the competition in the party’s secure offices in Dutch Parliament had been approved by the Dutch Counter-terrorism Agency NCTV.
Cartoons depicting Mohammad have provoked violent responses in the past.
In 2015, Islamist gunmen killed 12 people at the Paris offices of the French secularist satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which had printed cartoons of the Prophet. In 2005, the publication in a Danish newspaper of a dozen cartoons depicting the Prophet led to violent protests across the Muslim world.
Wilders’ Freedom Party is the leading opposition party in parliament after coming in second place in elections last March. He has called for the Koran to be banned, and says Islam is a totalitarian faith.
“Freedom of speech is threatened, especially for Islam critics,” Wilders said in a statement. “We should never accept that. Freedom of speech is our most important freedom.”
American cartoonist Bosch Fawstin, winner of a similar contest in Garland, Texas, in May 2015, has been asked to judge the Dutch contest, which will be held later this year.
