free speech

Wilders fights for free speech

Double Dutch court?

What about the Life of Mohammed?What about the Life of Mohammed?

When the Danish cartoons were printed the UK mainstream media refused to join in. They could have said that they were scared of reprisals and so could not reprint them, but they simply declared them 'offensive'. This was hardly the case as only the one of Mohammed with a bomb in his turban was faintly provocative. The moment was lost for solidarity amongst the Western media in the cause of free speech.

Geert Wilders pre-trial speech

If something is true then can it still be punishable?

The pre-trial hearing of Geert Wilders was held today and this is his submission

Mister Speaker, judges of the court,

I would like to make use of my right to speak for a few minutes.

Freedom is the most precious of all our attainments and the most vulnerable. People have devoted their lives to it and given their lives for it. Our freedom in this country is the outcome of centuries. It is the consequence of a history that knows no equal and has brought us to where we are now.

I believe with all my heart and soul that the freedom in the Netherlands is threatened. That what our heritage is, what generations could only dream about, that this freedom is no longer a given, no longer self-evident.

European First Amendment

Geert Wilders talks

Perhaps our Prime Minister Gordon Brown will remonstrate with the new American president, advising him against allowing 'dangerous' people into the USA. Geert Wilders proposes an European First Amendment and said in an interview in the States:

Thank you very much for inviting me. And – to the immigration authorities – thank you for letting me into this country. It is always a pleasure to cross a border without being sent back on the first plane.

Geert Wilders

House of Lords speech


Courtesy of Cranmer here is the speech that Jacqui Smith said would cause riots.

This is the text of what Dutch MP Geert Wilders would have said, had the British Government permitted him to do so:

London, Feb. 12, 2009

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much.

Thank you for inviting me. Thank you Lord Pearson and Lady Cox for showing Fitna, and for your gracious invitation. While others look away, you, seem to understand the true tradition of your country, and a flag that still stands for freedom.

This is no ordinary place. This is not just one of England’s tourist attractions. This is a sacred place. This is the mother of all Parliaments, and I am deeply humbled to speak before you.

25 reasons to be ashamed of Great Britain

shame game (in no particular order)

1 Peers who get cash for influence are not even charged and MPs who are imaginative with their expenses show no shame.

2 It takes on average 2 years and 8 months to arrange adoption for a child and costs £26,000.

3 Members of the armed forces receive paltry compensation for injuries and little respect from the government.

4 We fight an illegal war in Iraq and leave behind a theocratic state with sharia enshrined in the constitution.

5 We discriminate against married couples or partners by giving more money to single parents.
