Likely the only politician in the world with the guts to say that Muslim immigration to a western country—this time the Netherlands—should be halted is Geert Wilders. Yesterday elections in Holland sent a message to the Far Left and their Muslim Supremacist friends that times may soon be changing!
From the UK Guardian:
The Dutch far-right, anti-immigrant politician Geert Wilders has won major gains in local elections in the Netherlands, with preliminary results today indicating he may dominate the political scene in the run-up to the general election in three months.
Yesterday’s poll, 10 days after the centrist coalition government collapsed, was seen as a gauge of the public mood ahead of the national elections on 9 June.
Wilders last night claimed a massive victory, predicting: “We are going to conquer the entire country … We are going to be the biggest party in the country.
“The leftist elite still believes in multiculturalism, coddling criminals, a European super-state and high taxes,” Wilders told cheering supporters at a rally in Almere. “But the rest of the Netherlands thinks differently. That silent majority now has a voice,” he said.
Wilders, who likens the Qur’an to Hitler’s Mein Kampf and wants Muslim immigrants deported, is bidding to win the general election in June, with the latest opinion polls predicting he might take 27 of the 150 seats in the Netherlands’ highly fragmented political scene.
That would make it tough for the Christian Democrats, projected to win one seat less, to forge a strong coalition without Wilders.
I was too tired to post on this story last night, and I see this morning that it is all over the news. Here are some references to analysis of what it all means at Blue Ridge Forum.
Judy and I have written on several occasions about Wilders’ courageous campaign for free speech and against radical Islamic ideology and were fortunate to hear him speak at CPAC in 2009 (albeit the event was not sanctioned by the Washington DC insider Republicans that Michelle Malkin says are missing a key part of their anatomy, link in that same Blue Ridge Forum post!).
