Geert Wilders: INNOCENT of 'Hate Crimes' Charges in The Netherlands!

Major victory for freedom-of -speech 
right in the heart of Dhimmi-centric Europe...


Dutch MP Geert Wilders has long advocated an American-style freedom-of-speech for Holland and all the EU, as enshrined in the US Bill of Rights. With regular politically-driven charges like these from the Dutch Establishment Left that could destroy his party and even put Wilders behind bars (along with ceaseless death threats that emanate from welfare-sponging suburban  jihadis in The Netherlands), it's not hard to see why the man might feel the need first-hand...


A court in Amsterdam has acquitted MP Geert Wilders of charges of inciting hatred and insulting Muslims as a group.

The charges had been brought by individuals who felt they had been discriminated against by the anti-Islam nationalist MP.

Both the defence and the public prosecutor had demanded an acquittal.

In a first reaction, Mr Wilders said, "It is not so much a personal victory, but rather it's a victory for the freedom of expression. Criticising Islam turns out to be allowed, I've not been muzzled."

The Amsterdam court rejected the charge that Mr Wilders had insulted a group, because his statements in the media and in his movie Fitna were about Islam as a religion, not about Muslims as inviduals. The charges relating to inciting hatred and to discrimination were also thrown out.

Mr Wilders' statements about "a tsunami of Muslims" were described by the court as "rude and denigrating". Other statements were "on the edge of what is allowed" and "inciting". Yet, the court took into consideration that Mr Wilders spoke out in the context of public debate.

The overall acquittal is assumed to spell the end of the case, since an appeal is not likely.

And just listen to the man yourself and tell me where the crime is... in reality, he's about as honest, genuine, and reasonable a politician as one could imagine!

The simple truth: Geert Wilders is not a racist, a fascist, or anything of the sort... he's just a stand-up-guy who's not willing to purport BS as truth in the name of political correctness, actually cares about what's being done to his nation and culture, has the common sense to recognize -and courage to confront- a threat when he sees one...and as he himself put so succinctly- "Well, somebody should say it.":

This is FANTASTIC news. The tide is turning in Europe, slowly perhaps, but the shift is clear.

He'll be up to big things now that they can't muzzle him imho

RR, I agree that he has big plans, and I think he's been planning for a very long time now. He's a very brave man and I thank God he has been vindicated.

Can you imagine going to prison for being rude and denigrating. American jails would be full of Liberals, and all of Code Pink would be there.

That is a great development. I read about some of the stuff he did that was supposedly hate. He did little more than what Glenn Beck does.

This is good news. Maybe there is hope for Europe after all.

I think some American politicians should take serious notes from this guy.

Yep, it's called "balls" to stand up for what's right... alas, seems that in our own party, only Palin and Bachmann have any(!)
