Wilders Did It Again!

A few days ago Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Netherlands, won his appeal for the replacement (“substitution”) of the judges in the hate speech case against him. Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this analysis of Mr. Wilders’ historic victory, and provides the relevant Dutch political context for the decision.

Wilders did it again!

By H. Numan

The continued farce of the Wilder’s trial is going to get a brand new clown car. Wilders was able to substitute all his judges last Friday. That’s a pretty big turn of events. As you can expect in North Korea on the North Sea, this news is already fading away fast. The media report only extensively, not to say ad nauseam, if something bad can be reported about Wilders. When he scores, not so much. Geert Wilders is still on trial over that ‘fewer, fewer, fewer’ remark. He was convicted for that without penalty. Both he and the prosecutor appealed.

For new readers, a bit of history first.

Right after the municipal elections elections in 2014 Wilders asked his supporters if they wanted more or fewer Moroccans in the country. The crowd shouted ‘fewer, fewer, fewer!’ Okay, said Wilders. We’re going to arrange that. Progressive Netherlands was up in arms. They finally found the stick with which they could beat the blond horse to pulp!

A show trial that would make Stalin proud was set up. People could go to any police station and fill in pre-composed complaint forms. Set up like a multiple choice quiz. Just check off what you find the most offensive, and sign on the dotted line. Oh, you can’t read and write? No worries. Mark an offense, any offense, and put your thumbprint instead of a signature. Mosques supplied translators and assistance free of charge. Many thousands of progressive agitators and muslims used this brilliant free-of-charge opportunity to hang Wilders.

Another perversion of justice: during the trial the prosecutor quickly redefined the word ‘race’, so he could file racial discrimination charges. Under his new definition Moroccans are now a race. If that’s a bit puzzling, you Americans are now under Dutch law also a race. Why? Because group insult carries much less punishment. Again, Stalin would glow with pride.

On 9 December 2016 the kangaroo court grabbed the verdict out of their pouch: guilty without punishment. That was as far as the court dared to go. The prosecutor had asked for a penalty of €5000 for insulting Moroccans as a group. Both Wilders and the prosecutor appealed against the verdict. The prosecutor because he wanted more. A fine might have consequences for Wilder’s political career. No fine, and Wilders could go on as usual. Wilders appealed because he defends his own and our freedom.

That appeal took no less than two years. Last Friday the kangaroo court went into session and … all three kangaroos had to hop. The attorney for Wilders was Mr. Geert-Jan Knoops (Mr. is not “mister”, but stands for meester, the title of a person who holds a legal degree in The Netherlands and Belgium), who asked for substitution of the court, as the court was biased against the defendant.

What had happened in the interim? Minister for Foreign Affairs Halbe Zijlstra claimed he was present in a dacha with Putin in Moscow. This was a blatant lie, and proved as such just days later. Zijlstra had to resign immediately. He was the first piece of ballast to be dropped by premier Rutte in his third cabinet. I reported about his demise.

A few days later Alexander Pechtold, the leader of D66 and a mortal enemy of Wilders, said in public: “I have yet to meet the first Russian who admits his mistakes.’ Which is exactly the same as Wilders ‘fewer, fewer, fewer’ remark. Complaints were filed, and rejected. “This is completely normal in the debate” was the argument. The court saw no reason to put Pechtold next to Wilders in the dock.

That was the reason that Mr. Knoops asked for substitution, and this time his request was granted. His previous requests were denied. For example, he asked to call all the people who filed the above-mentioned complaints (many thousands) as witnesses. This was denied. A sample of witness chooses at random was also denied. Which makes it kind of hard to prove to the court that the accusations were rigged. Some of those complainants had no idea what they had signed. They were illiterate, and were told this was ‘good’ or ‘gave them special benefits’ by volunteers from mosques. One of the advantages of having a multicultural society, I guess. Illiteracy is back with a vengeance.

Russia’s Hypersonic Missile

A couple of days ago Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that his country had developed a hypersonic cruise missile that would render any anti-missile systems — including those of the United States — ineffective. The video below shows excerpts from the speech in which Mr. Putin made his announcement.

Coincidentally, Geert Wilders is currently visiting Russia. He was interviewed today by RT:

Geert Wilders, a Dutch politician and leader of the anti-immigration Party for Freedom, says European nations lack the kind of leadership he sees in the US and Russia, where the interests of their own people are prioritized.

Wilders, who has become a polarizing figure in Europe over his anti-EU and anti-Islam platform, is currently visiting Russia in his capacity as a member of the Dutch Parliament. RT caught up with him for an exclusive interview. Wilder says while he didn’t like a lot of the policies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, but he would like to see a nationalist stance like Putin’s in other European nations.

“Vladimir Putin is a leader, whatever you think of him. I criticize a lot of his policies. But I applaud him as I applaud Mr. Trump for being leaders, who are standing there on behalf of the Russian and the American people,” he said. “We lack that kind of leadership in Europe. Europe, being a non-entity, countries combined — almost 30 in our days and still trying to enlarge — where there is a total lack of sense and identity. Therefore I believe Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin are more favorable than our own leaders.”

Dutch Cabinet Got Its First Gash

Below is a report by our Dutch correspondent H. Numan on the latest from the lurid soap opera that is Dutch politics.


Dutch cabinet got its first gash

by H. Numan

The new Dutch cabinet Rutte III dropped its first piece of ballast from its balloon. Or you might say that Zr. Ms. Rutte III got its first big gash. Minister for Foreign Affairs Halbe Zijlstra had to resign.

Who’s Zijlstra, and what did he do? Halbe Zijlstra was the VVD (conservatives) party whip in the cabinets Rutte I and II. He was rewarded for his hard work with a cabinet post, and an important post at that: foreign affairs. The problem was that Zijlstra didn’t have a lot of diplomatic experience and never worked in anything remotely close to ministerial level. So… he made it up.

He claimed he was present a couple of years back during a meeting in a dacha where Vladimir Putin said he wanted a greater Russian Federation. Putin said he wanted the Baltic states back and the Ukraine. Not only that, Kazakhstan would be nice to have too.

A few days ago questions began to surface in the news about the veracity of those words. Zijlstra went on the defense and later on had to admit he made that story up. And became the laughingstock of the country. Lots of memes may be seen on the (Dutch) Internet in which Zijlstra is present at world-famous occasions.

Parliament wasn’t satisfied with his explanation, and wanted a vote of no confidence. Mark Rutte tried half-heartedly to save him. To no avail. Before parliament could ask for the motion, the minister resigned. With tears in his eyes.

D66 Minister Sigrid Kaag (foreign trade & development aid) — that’s the one who is married to a Palestinian and without permission donated $60 million to the Palestinians — will take over, temporarily.

That’s not really good news. Kaag is not merely ‘against Israel’. She’s virulently anti-Semitic. Not really a surprise, for someone marrying a Palestinian, what? What worries me more is the way she thinks she can spend the public purse. Now she can do that on two ministries… As she sees fit, do remember that. That’s very dangerous. It’s hushed up a bit, but her donation of 60 million dollars to Hamas wasn’t stopped by the rest of the cabinet. That makes it official government policy. In other words: as a response to Trump’s freezing of support for the Palestinians, the Dutch government tossed a big bag of money to Hamas, to make up for it. That’s not what a trustworthy ally should do, is it? I’m pretty certain the Israeli government in Jerusalem doesn’t like it either. Those things can come back to haunt you, sooner or later. Trump won’t forget it, and neither will Netanyahu. This little thing is too minor to even mention, but it will be noted.

Geert Wilders and the PVV Rally in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is one of the most Islamized cities in Europe — it’s right up there with Birmingham, Malmö, Marseille, and Berlin.

This afternoon Geert Wilders and the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) held an anti-Islamization rally in Rotterdam. Hundreds of PVV supporters marched with Mr. Wilders and listened to him speak.

Representatives of the Flemish separatist party Vlaams Belang were also present for part of the rally. In the photo below you can see Vlaams Belang leader Filip Dewinter holding the banner while marching alongside Geert Wilders:

The following video shows brief excerpts from the rally:

The Turkish party Denk (whose name is a bilingual wordplay in Dutch and Turkish, if I understand it correctly) staged a counter-demonstration against the PVV. Police kept the two groups forcibly separated.

Below are excerpts from a report published by Digital Journal:

Dutch far-right protest against govt, Islam

Hundreds of right-wing demonstrators crowded a main square at Rotterdam’s central station Saturday to protest what they describe as the “discrimination against ordinary Dutch citizens” in favour of immigrants and Muslims.

The protest by around 700 right-wing supporters comes as Dutch political parties gear up for local government elections in March, with issues such as immigration and integration again expected to feature prominently among its 13 million illegible [sic] voters.

“The Netherlands is our country, it’s not (Prime Minister) Mark Rutte’s country,” populist Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who led the demonstration, told the protesters.

“We live here, not in Morocco, we don’t live in Turkey or in Saudi Arabia, but in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands,” said Wilders.

“Here it’s our rules that count. I want to tell you that the Netherlands is not an Islamic country, do you agree?” Wilders said to loud applause, speaking through a megaphone and sporting his trademark peroxide hairdo.

He left the demonstration a short while later after safety concerns when his vehicle became boxed in by a throng of supporters and journalists.

Geert Wilders: “We in Western Europe Have Made a Terrible Mistake”

Yesterday the parties belonging to the European Parliament group Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) gathered in Prague. Among the party leaders were Marine Le Pen (France, Front National), Tomio Okamura (Czechia, SPD), and Geert Wilders, (Netherlands, PVV).

Below is the prepared text for Mr. Wilders’ speech. I haven’t seen a video of the speech yet, but we’ll post it when it becomes available.

Speech by Geert Wilders at the ENF Congress

Prague
December 16, 2017

Dear friends, I am very happy to be here in Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Thank you Tomio Okamura and the SPD for inviting me.

Your huge election victory last October here in the Czech Republic encouraged us all.

Congratulations Tomio! Congratulation SPD! Long live the Czech Patriots!

I am especially honored to have been asked to address so many Czech patriots here this evening.

Let me tell you a little secret: The Czechs are one of my favorite people in Europe.
You are a nation of heroes!

Just think of Jan Komensky, the great philosopher who also lived in the Netherlands. He was a great European, but wherever he went, he kept writing in Czech and remained a Czech above all.
Let us never forget his great lesson: Only by remaining what we are, we can be true Europeans!

When I think of the Czechs, I also think of Thomas Masaryk, the liberator of your land, your very own George Washington.

He mocked our so-called intellectual elites, who are eager to change the world, but too arrogant to see the wisdom in traditions and conservative values.

His great lesson is this: Respect the wisdom of the people. Respect the wisdom of our ancestors.
Our national values, our traditions, our identity, they make us who we are.
And we will never give them up!!

When I think of the Czechs, I think of Jan Palach, hero of the Prague Spring of 1968.
Jan Palach refused to live under a totalitarian dictatorship.

Rather than live under the yoke of totalitarianism, he preferred to die for freedom.
In this legacy we stand! All of us!

Palach made the word “Czech” into a synonym of bravery.
He is not dead, his spirit lives on! We will never betray it!

We, too, we want to live in freedom and remain who we are.

My party wants to take the Netherlands out of the EU. Our motto is Nexit!

We stand for sovereign independent nation-states because the nation-state is the home of our democracy and only the nation-states can protect our national identity.

And we are not afraid to state very clear: The EU is a monster! We want a future without it!

Geert Wilders on RT: “We Want to Become a Strong Sovereign Nation Again”

Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands, was interviewed earlier today by Sophie Shevardnadze on Russia Today. Some excerpts are below:

Geert Wilders: Trump & Putin put interests of their nations first, European leaders to do the same

The rise of the political right is being felt across Europe and the Netherlands is no exception, where controversial politician Geert Wilders, a veteran of the game, took second place with his party in this year’s elections. Will his radical policies now make it into the Dutch and the European mainstream? Geert Wilders was our guest.

Sophie Shevardnadze: Geert Wilders, welcome to the show. It’s great to have you with us one more time. In the Dutch election in March, you were tipped to win, but that didn’t quite happen. Was that a clear sign to you that the Dutch people don’t really like the changes you’re proposing?

Geert Wilders: No, exactly the opposite. We were actually one of the winners, we got 30% of votes, we had 15 seats in the Dutch parliament before the elections, but after the elections we came up with 20 seats. The party of the current Prime Minister Rutte has in fact lost many seats. We became the second biggest party, so we were one of the biggest winners of the elections at the end of the day.

SS: You criticise the elites, the establishment, but you’ve been part of Dutch politics for 20 years, aren’t you the elite and the establishment?

GW: That’s a good question. You know, it’s not about how long you’ve been in politics but what you propose to do. I think the Dutch politicians and government should listen to the Dutch people. But they don’t. In Holland it’s not like ‘America First’ or ‘Russia First’ but ‘Holland Last’. When it comes to the European Union where we are the biggest net contributor, we pay our taxpayers’ money to the southern European countries, or when it comes to the mass immigration the Dutch electorate have made a very bad deal. What I propose is that we listen more to the people. And the people want the sovereign and strong Netherlands. Let’s work with other countries if they see fit and share our interests, not let’s not be as stupid as the today’s policies.

SS: After the elections in France and the Netherlands, right-leaning parties, like yours, had a strong showing. French president Macron and German chancellor Merkel even started talking about serious reform of the EU. Will you be content with the reform they are proposing?

GW: You know, when European politicians or people in favour of the European Union talk about the European reform, what they actually mean is not reform but more European Union. And indeed parties like mine want the elections. As I told you, we are the second biggest party in the Dutch parliament where we have thirteen or fourteen parties. And Marine Le Pen’s party, as you’ve rightfully mentioned, has become the second party in France. FPO (The Freedom Party of Austria) has become the second biggest party in Austria and is probably going to govern as well. In Germany we saw the Alternative for Germany party become the third biggest party. Our voice of millions of Europeans is getting stronger today and we don’t want more European reform, we want more national sovereignty. We want less European Union. And my party wants [the Netherlands] to leave the European Union. We believe that we can only be sovereign and in charge of our own front door when it comes to immigration if we are outside the European Union. We want to become a strong sovereign nation again.

SS: Your party is called ‘The Party for Freedom’ and you talk about freedom all the time, but at the same time, you’re suggesting closing mosques all over the Netherlands and making Islam unattractive. How does this go along with the freedom that you’re promoting?

There Will Be a Reckoning

After writing yesterday’s post about the cultural enrichment of the Isle of Lewis, and after reading responses by readers — especially Scottish readers — in the comments, I started thinking about the larger processes that are now underway, grinding slowly and inexorably towards their unspeakable conclusion.

If “refugees” are being resettled on the Isle of Lewis, then it seems fairly clear that the UK has passed the point of no return — there is no peaceful, democratic way to reverse the slide into a multicultural hell-hole, with all that entails.

The same is true of a number of other Western countries, including Sweden, Germany, and France. Either they give in and allow themselves to become Islamic states, or there will be severe inter-ethnic violence. There is no longer any way out through the ballot box.

The relentless propaganda of the last forty years has been successful. A sufficient number of people have been convinced, numbed, intimidated, or made passive by the constant blare of multiculturalism from their media and elected officials. Even if they get a chance to vote for somebody completely different — as the Dutch do in every election where Geert Wilders runs — enough voters have been brainwashed or alienated to the point where such a candidate can never get enough votes to form a government and change the course of the ship of state. Titanic, meet Iceberg!

Yet a substantial minority is angry — all you have to do is read the comment sections on media outlets or Twitter to see how many white Westerners are enraged and disaffected. They know what is happening, and they know it is being done against their will and without consulting them. And they know who is doing it to them.

This means that when all the trouble shakes out and the dénouement comes — which will not happen in my lifetime; it’s decades away — there will be plenty of survivors who will remember what happened and who was responsible. If they have children, they will pass that awareness on, along with their bitterness and anger.

These people will constitute what the Bible calls a “remnant”: the people who survived the catastrophes inflicted by God on the Israelites for their faithlessness. And so it will be with the surviving fragments of Western Civilization. Whether they believe in God or not, they will be a remnant.

Which means there will be a reckoning.

Europe of Nations and Freedom: A New Model of European Cooperation

Leaders of the Europe of Nations and Freedom group (ENF) in the European Parliament will meet next month in Prague to discuss a new European model of cooperation that doesn’t involve open borders, mass migration, and ukases from Brussels.

I was looking at the ENF entry in Wikipedia, and noticed that there were no Hungarians in the group. This is because MEPs for Fidesz (Viktor Orbán’s party) are in fact part of the European People’s Party group (EPP), which includes the German Christian Democrats — that is, Angela Merkel’s party.

One can only hope that Mr. Orbán and Fidesz come to their senses, jump ship from the EPP, and team up with Geert Wilders, Matteo Salvini, Marine Le Pen, and other like-minded patriots who fight to preserve the European nation-states.

Many thanks to Xanthippa for translating this article from Globe24.cz:

Anti-migration parties will meet up in Prague. Le Pen, perhaps Wilders, will discuss cooperation

Prague — Leaders of European anti-immigrant parties will meet up in the Czech metropolis. They will look for a new model of cooperation. The parties that will take part in the summit together form the political group Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) in the European Parliament. They are united in their skepticism towards European integration, nationalism, and an opposition to migration.

The meeting, in which will participate for example the leader of the French National Front, Marine Le Pen, and Geert Wilders, the Dutch opponent of Islam, will take place in mid-December, the president of the movement Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD) Tomio Okamura announced today.

“A new model of European cooperation will be discussed — the closest possible cooperation of sovereign countries, without being dictated to by Brussels, on the basis of mutual benefit,” Okamura described this event, which he brought to the attention of the website Aktualne.cz today.

In addition to Le Pen and Wilders, the president of the Italian Northern League, Matteo Salvini, and representatives of the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) will also arrive in Prague. According to Okamura, the participation of the chief of the Austrian Freedom Party, Heinz-Christian Strache, is uncertain due to negotiations regarding the formation of a government. Representatives from the fraction ENF from Romania, Poland, Belgium and Great Britain will also arrive at the conference.

Okamura’s SPD had pointed to good relationships with similarly oriented parties earlier. Le Pen, for example, supported such a movement prior to the parliamentary elections which took place in Czechia a few weeks ago.

For the event, a hall with the capacity of a thousand seats has been booked, and has already been filled, said Okamura. The conference will last for two days, and will start on Friday the 15th of December. The main event will take place on Saturday. First the internal discussions of the ENF group will take place. The afternoon part of the meeting will then only be open to invited members and supporters of parties brought together in ENF.

Geert Wilders: “What Kind of Madness is Occurring in Our Country?”

Last Saturday we posted a video of remarks made by Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands, at the opening session of the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of the Dutch parliament. Mr. Wilders was addressing the cabinet of the new coalition government, which he referred to as “Planet Rutte”, after Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

The following video shows the conclusion of Mr. Wilders’ remarks the following day. He castigated the cabinet in the strongest of terms for its facilitation of the Islamization of the Netherlands. And, as it happens, he was speaking on November 2, the thirteenth anniversary of the assassination of Theo van Gogh by an Islamic terrorist:
