Geert Wilders speech. Day one of hate-speech trial redux.

Not content to allow his previous trial to end with anything other than a guilty verdict, the Dutch Crown attourney’s office insisted on re-trying him for the same crime. Something to do with offending Muslims.

From The Gates of Vienna:

Geert Wilders trial, part 2
Below is the speech given by Geert Wilders on the opening day of his new trial on “hate speech” charges in Amsterdam. Many thanks to Vlaamse Leeuw for the translation:

The lights are going out all over Europe. All over the continent where our culture flourished and where man created freedom, prosperity and civilization. The foundation of the West is under attack everywhere.

All over Europe the elites are acting as the protectors of an ideology that has been bent on destroying us since the fourteenth century. An ideology that has sprung from the desert and that can produce only deserts because it does not give people freedom. The Islamic Mozart, the Islamic Gerard Reve [a Dutch author], the Islamic Bill Gates; they do not exist because without freedom there is no creativity. The ideology of Islam is especially noted for killing and oppression and can only produce societies that are backward and impoverished. Surprisingly, the elites do not want to hear any criticism of this ideology.

My trial is not an isolated incident. Only fools believe it is. All over Europe multicultural elites are waging total war against their populations. Their goal is to continue the strategy of mass immigration, which will ultimately result in an Islamic Europe — a Europe without freedom: Eurabia.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Anyone who thinks or speaks individually is at risk. Freedom-loving citizens who criticize Islam, or even merely suggest that there is a relationship between Islam and crime or honour killing, must suffer, and are threatened or criminalized. Those who speak the truth are in danger.

The lights are going out allover Europe. Everywhere the Orwellian thought police are at work, on the lookout for thought crimes everywhere, casting the populace back within the confines where it is allowed to think.

This trial is not about me. It is about something much greater. Freedom of speech is not the property of those who happen to belong to the elites of a country. It is an inalienable right, the birthright of our people. For centuries battles have been fought for it, and now it is being sacrificed to please a totalitarian ideology.

Future generations will look back at this trial and wonder who was right. Who defended freedom and who wanted to get rid of it.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Our freedom is being restricted everywhere, so I repeat what I said here last year:

It is not only the privilege, but also the duty of free people — and hence also my duty as a member of the Dutch Parliament — to speak out against any ideology that threatens freedom. Hence it is a right and a duty to speak the truth about the evil ideology that is called Islam. I hope that freedom of speech will emerge triumphant from this trial. I hope not only that I shall be acquitted, but especially that freedom of speech will continue to exist in the Netherlands and in Europe.

  1. All those “Elite” over there and here also as far as that goes when it comes to Islam are not the untouchables they think they are. All they are is on the kill me last list as I am useful to you and in the end will suffer the same fate that we do. That fate is entirely going to be based on how hard we fight back against Islam and its system of dominance and submission.

  2. I agree with you Richard. History again repeating itself, the many of the western governments and citizenry in a state of total denial. Before many of the past wars they were always in a state of non preparation, only to be rudely awakened at the last moment. We are burying ourselves in a mire of Political Correctness and Liberalism. To act now would save millions of lives and billions of dollars. Appeasement is the path to slavery and domination.

  3. Before the next decade is out we will see massive changes in the world, not only in public opinion but the map makers will be busy reprinting maps because of the nations that will be absorbed into other nations.
