Geert Wilders Still Going Strong

Photo © Snaphanen

I paid a visit to southern Sweden on October 27, 2012. The occasion was a visit to Malmö by a fellow notorious Islamophobe, the Dutch politician Geert Wilders. He had been invited there to speak by Ingrid Carlqvist, the leader of the newly established Swedish Free Press Society. This is a brave but difficult initiative in a semi-totalitarian society, where the mass media are infamous for their crushing left-wing, multicultural and pro-Islamic consensus.

Malmö was historically one of the first Christian cities in what is today Sweden. It is currently set to become the first Muslim-majority city or town in the Nordic countries, but perhaps not the last. What once was a safe Scandinavian city has in recent years been plagued by a wave of armed robberies, rapes and bombs.

The performance of the Swedish police was a mixed bag. From my personal experience, they did a reasonably good job, but they apparently let through a few things that I didn’t see. Katrine Winkel Holm of the Danish Free Press Society reported about physical assaults on some of those who simply came peacefully to listen to Wilders’ speech. Holm criticized the police for giving violent left-wing thugs too much leeway to intimidate and attack people in the streets, trying to block them from entering, or bombarding them with eggs while calling them “Nazis.”

Upon arrival we noticed there was already a heavy police presence. To invite perhaps the most famous Islam-critical politician in Europe to speak in the most heavily Islamized city in Scandinavia was a slap in the face, not just to Muslims, but at least as much to their enablers on the far Left. Predictably, those leftists showed up in force. Not just from Sweden; they even imported violent left-wing thugs from neighboring Denmark to assault people.

They may unfortunately have managed to scare away a few potential listeners. For the most part, however, the heavy presence of the Swedish police, complete with horses, helicopters and armored vehicles, managed to keep the totalitarian thugs at bay. They were shouting slogans and carrying banners, as usual.  Most people paid little attention to them, since everyone already knew what they were going to say. These people haven’t substantially changed their slogans for the past 80 years, since the time of Stalin’s purges in the 1930s. Everybody who disagrees with them is a “Fascist.”

They can be very violent when they want to, and for years have physically attacked critics of Islam or mass immigration in Sweden while the authorities looked the other way. The AFA, or “Anti-fascists,” are remarkably similar to actual fascists, although that irony would be totally lost on them. They are what they claim to fight. These left-wing thugs seem to believe that we would be living in a socialist, multicultural paradise had it not been for the stubborn resistance of evil racists and Islamophobes, who must be stamped out at all costs. Sweden is expected to receive 50,000 asylum seekers in 2013, a very substantial number for a small Scandinavian nation, but for left-wing thugs, the natives cannot be turned into a minority in their own country fast enough.

All things considered, however, they were tamer this time around than might have been feared. The main reason for this lackluster performance was no doubt the heavy police presence, but partly also because it was a bit cold. These are revolutionaries of the PlayStation 3 era. Yes, they want to smash the capitalist system and beat up the fascists pigs who uphold it, but not today. It’s too cold, and mummy has some warm meatballs for them at home.

Once inside, I sat down in a room packed with TV cameras and journalists, and not just from Sweden. Norwegian TV2 and others have accused me of “hiding” from the press. They’ve wanted to interview me for more than a year. Well, this time I was sitting openly in a major Scandinavian city smack in the middle of a crowd full of members of the press. Even though my photo has been widely circulated in Norway, a team from Norwegian TV2 passed me by just a few meters away on multiple occasions and never noticed my presence.

Not too bright, these journalists.

To my great joy, I was allowed to meet Geert Wilders before he gave his speech. His security apparatus was very elaborate, as it should be for a person living with a constant threat of having his throat cut, but I’ve been told that it has been even more extensive in the past. Perhaps it varies according to specific credible threats. I knew that Wilders had heard of me even before the Breivik case, but we had never actually met before. I was delighted and honored that he wanted to meet me, and of course accepted immediately. Geert Wilders is a symbol of resistance, not just for the Dutch but for the whole of Europe and for Western Civilization.

Wilders found it very odd that I was forced to flee Norway, despite having never done anything criminal and never having met the perpetrator. We also talked a little bit about the losses suffered by his Party for Freedom (PVV) at the Dutch elections in September. He hoped that this setback would be temporary. In just a few years they had gone from zero to being the third-largest political party in the Netherlands, and had to train many inexperienced MPs. Wilders had also been personally harassed with a ridiculous show trial for racism and Islamophobia. Even so, he judged that the long-term prospects for the Party for Freedom were still very good, what with the problem of Islamization increasing year by year.

Geert Wilders is a forceful man, and one strongly feels his presence, not just because of the security guards who are always nearby, but also because of his personal character. He has real charisma, which is necessary for a successful politician. I noticed that some of the female members of the audience seemed quite enthralled by him. Yet he is also a powerful public speaker who addresses real and profound political issues.

He gave an eloquent and impassioned speech in Malmö about the threat of Islamization and the ongoing loss of freedom of speech in Europe. Wilders extended his focus beyond Islam alone and talked about limiting mass immigration in general, confronting cultural relativism and restoring a healthy pride in our civilization and our national cultures. He also emphasized that all of this is exceedingly difficult to achieve as long as the European Union, and not its member states, controls policies. The EU is thus at the heart of many of Europe’s problems.

Overall, it was a good meeting and a good speech. The event was met by the predictable outcry from hostile Swedish mass media, which refused to talk about the actual problems mentioned by Wilders, and merely focused on his alleged “hate.” Symptomatic of the response was an op-ed by the columnist Oisín Cantwell, who was present at the speech, in the newspaper Aftonbladet. He attempted to mock Geert Wilders and his audience without actually addressing any of the issues raised by Mr. Wilders. Mr. Cantwell apparently also thought it was funny that writer Ingrid Carlqvist no longer feels safe in her own home, in Sweden.

However, Wilders’ otherwise good speech repeated the claim that the Benghazi attacks in September 2012 on the US diplomatic mission to Libya were triggered by an anti-Islamic movie. It has now been well-established that this was merely a cover story. The CIA indicate that this was a regular and carefully planned Islamic terror attack, possibly by groups tied to al-Qaida, carried out on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks in the USA in 2001. It was not a spontaneous riot in response to some obscure movie. This claim is false.

It was later revealed that the administration of President Obama misinformed the public about this, and that Mr. Obama refused requests for more support and back-up to the US ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was murdered by Jihadist Muslims. This claim should not be repeated by Wilders or his staff in the future.

The “turbulent blond” Geert Wilders is the leader of the third-largest political party in the Netherlands, was once denied entry to Britain, and had his visit to Australia sabotaged by authorities who are more than willing to let militant Islamic preachers enter the country. He has to live with constant death threats due to his criticism of Islamic culture and around-the-clock police protection in Western Europe, possibly for the rest of his life. Wilders and others like him show great personal courage and integrity in standing up for what they believe in and confronting the forces of violent totalitarianism head-on. That stands to their credit.

The big question, however, is: Why should they have to?

Why should increasing numbers of politicians, artists and writers in Western Europe and elsewhere in the Western world have to live as virtual prisoners in their own homes, surviving only because of constant police protection, while we continue to import en masse members of the hostile tribes and backward cultures who are behind such threats?

It is criminal negligence by Western so-called “leaders” to promote open-border policies and continued mass immigration, including Muslim immigration, as sections of our cities sink increasingly into anarchy, our freedom of speech gradually vanishes and our cultural heritage is erased from our school curricula.

    Wilders has been often compared to Winston Churchill. But the comparison isn't apt, not because Wildrers lacks any of the intellectual acumen and steely vision of Churchill, but because of the difference in the respective times in which they lived.

    Imagine Churchill living in a Britain in which 3 million Nazis lived…not British fascists along the lines of Mosley, but 3 million GERMAN Nazis residing in Britain, more on the way every day. Imagine the entire British media and political establishment enthusiastically carrying water for the Nazis and demonizing anyone who might dare call attention to the fact that Nazism might not be conducive to freedom. Imagine Hitler's repudiation of the Munich Pact which he had willingly signed, and the British establishment blaming Britain for his doing so.

    You see friends, Churchill had his detractors, but at some point, reality struck home to the British people and they embraced him for his vision. There will be no such epiphany for the people of Holland today. History is destined to consign the name of Geert Wilders to the same type of political oblivion where he has lived his entire life.

    Frigg'n sad.

    • lillith

      Really well said sir!

    • Alexander Gofen

      Your comparison is strong. It well illustrates the grotesqueness of the suicidal wish of Eurabia now vs. that of "moderately" defeatist Europe then. However, if you really intended to demean Wilders as though deemed to oblivion, you are wrong! Wilders is fighting against greater odds, against greater madness than Churchill did. (Such a madness as letting in millions of islamic piranhas then was just unthinkable). Even if the civilization dies devoured by islamic piranhas, the name of such a prophetic personality like Wilders will remain in the chronicles no less glorious than that of Churchill.

      • Chezwick

        Hope you're right friend. But think – would Churchill's name be remembered as gloriously as it has if the Nazis had won?

        • Alexander Gofen

          We do not know many examples of what happens after near entire civilization dies in spite of efforts of a few prophets to divert it from the suicidal ways… The first that comes to mind is the Bible. We do remember the names of Lot and Noah and of a few others, who tried to divert the disasters but failed.

    • PaulRevereNow

      Good comment, but I'm not sure the British people were all that different from today's Europeans. This is because they didn't have their epiphany until mid-1939, when the war was fast approaching. And after the war, the British people voted Winston out of office. How do you explaiin that?

      • Chezwick

        Better late than never, eh?

        Can you imagine the Dutch society (or ANY west European society for that matter) suddenly viewing Islam for the civilizational threat that it is? Individuals, sure, but a societal consensus? Not in a million years. Credit massive doses of multiculturalism in education, among other things.

        As for the Brits voting Churchill out in '45…the war was over, he'd served his purpose, and was discarded like an old shoe. Ingrates!

        Still, one short year later, in Missouri, USA, Winston changed the political lexicon of our age with his 'Iron Curtain' speech. He saw in '46 what it took everyone else two more years to grasp.

        A further tragedy to this story is that, as Europe Islamizes, it's not only Wilders and his legacy who will be consigned to political oblivion, but Churchill himself. We all know of several of his quotes disparaging the religion of Islam…quotes that were not only objectively true, but that weren't at all controversial in his era. In Europe's Islamic, Orwellian future, Churchill will be demonized as a racist and will be all but expunged from the historical record.

        • PaulRevereNow

          …But it was more than just the British people being ungrateful, in July 1945. They voted in Clement Attlee, who was known for his big government, nanny state sympathies. Voting Winston out was a big step towards the socialism England has today.(Even though he became P.M. again in 1951) Churchill will be demonized as a racist? Sad and terrible…but I think you're right.

        • PaulRevereNow

          The world does seem to be racing towards a collision of the dark forces–Islam v. Communist China. I hope this doesn't happen; and where the forces of sanity, including Churchill's legacy will fit in, I couldn't tell you.

          • Mary Sue

            China did have a problem with "wee-gurs" a bit ago, didn't they? (Is that how you pronounce Uighurs?)

    • Drakken

      Very well put Chezwick, the reality is that Wilders is the new messenger of the dangers we face, unfortunately depending on your point of view, someone of a more nationalistic bent will take the reins and you will have mini-Beruits all over Europe and a mass exodus of muslims from Europe.

      • Chezwick

        I see it the other way, amigo. I don't think native Europeans have any stomach for a real fight, they are ideologically neutered. As for those who will be leaving in the event conflict DOES break out, it will likely be the natives, not the Muslims.

        Sorry to be such a damn realist. I'm desperately looking for evidence to the contrary…with little success.

    • atthebeach

      Geert Wilders, ET AL; both inspire and amaze; their courage stands as a challenge. We need to let our 'Leadership' – Gov/Religious/Local/Federal – hear; know; that we are listening; and we 'get it'; and that they must. We can spell 'dhimmi'; and we know the threat it portends; should our culture/Country; become just that.

      And yes; so many brave voices giving warning; including as well that of Robert Spencer, who is 'here by friend and link'; and David (Horowitz) and Company, who, determinedly; fearlessly and tirelessly; take on the the Left – and the Islamic Left; right here at FPM, and beyond; of course.

    • Mary Sue

      It's very easy for the Left and their cohorts to dismiss what they are saying out of hand, simply by relegating them to the ranks of the "crazy". See, it's the world's most insidious silencing tactic. Just denounce your opponent as mentally out to lunch, thus unable to process reality, and then they are suddenly not worth even engaging, far less refuting. So then many ordinary people don't even listen in the first place because "I heard someone on MSNBC say those people were crazy."

  • Mary Sue

    it is a damn shame that the Left wing Useless Idiots decry Wilders, Geller, Darwish, Shoebat, etc as "insane" as well as anyone who believes them.

    • Roger

      Surrender never solves anything. The press seem to think they will be protected from islam when it takes over.

    The threat is real and should not be considered as as obsession or imagination. The swedes and the rest of Europe should smell the coffee before it is too late and will not be able to be reverted

  • Toecutter

    The last two paragraphs say it all. It’s because our politicians are all weak, vain, superficial, spineless suits. Remember, the most dangerous sharks wear suits. Well paid for, of course.

    There is no leadeership in the West nowadays. Geert Wilders ought to get the Nobel Peace Prize. But, he won’t, because the crooks in the UN wouldn’t have it. They’re too busy raking in the dollars while their people starve.

    As for those god-damned sanctimonious ‘I’m always right, I’m a commie’ Lefties, I believe Winston Churchill summed you all up as such: “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy”.

    Burn, Leftie burn!!!

    • T.B.

      I agree with what Churchill said… it's just that ALL of Western Europe is socialist (with a few notable exceptions, e.g., the UK). And Sweden is even more than socialist, if you ask me. Furthermore, finding scapegoats for one's own lack of success is not only a philosophy embraced by socialists, but also by nationalists. So, I think you are walking on a thin line there. The horseshoe theory is very interesting and makes some valid points… if you have the time and curiosity, do google it.

      And how does instigating intolerance earn you the Nobel PEACE Prize of all things? I doubt his vendetta secured anything other than the peace of mind of some individuals as yourself.

      One thing that is not known about Geert is that he's a Zionist. From there stems his hate of Islam. Personally, I'm not impressed by our immigrants, but cutting heads left and right, and most of all generalizing isn't a solution either.

    Geert Wilders, My hero. Please, let's change the word islamophobe, which means fear of islam(lower-cased on purpose), I prefer the word islamloather, the same way I prefer to use the word suicide murderer rather than suicide bomber.

    • Lan Astaslem

      good one – I like 'islamosavvy' it means, "We're onto you"

    • Drakken

      Instead of suicde bomber I prefer islamokazi who conducts islamocide, and it is not that I am islamophobic, it is the fact that I am islamonauseas.

    • LindaRivera

      Western ruling elites ADORE the excessively cruel and savage followers of the "religion of peace". Our elites have deliberately imported many millions of Muslims into our countries to wage jihad against us as commanded by the Quran war book.

  • Dwee

    Though I lost family members in the holocaust, I believed it was a product of a demented time, that people could never be that blinded by irrational leaders again. Ha! Not so. People, or should I say sheeple, are just as easily manipulated as ever. The fact that Hussein Obama was elected president of a once great freedom loving country is proof of that.

    What is going on in Europe is pathetic, though in a way it is poetic justice — the Europeans will eventually be tortured and murdered as the Jews were, many already beginning to experience this ugly side of humanity. The Louvre built an Islamic wing, to stave off its destruction by Muslims drooling over the prospect of bombing the great artistic symbols of the west to ashes. But by doing so, it also ensured its destruction.

    • Drakken

      As much as I hate to rain on your parade of doom and gloom, make no mistake, the Europeans will fight and they will be much less forgiving of the traitors among them who have wrought the plague of muslims upon them than the Serbs and Croats who fought their own muslim problem.

      • Dwee

        Ha, no parade. I feel sorry for the poor Europeans. First the Germans destroy their most hard working citizens, then they get their governments to provide for them as their economies go limp, then they invite in people that despise them. The Europeans will fight

        • Dwee

          Oops. Replying to my own message. Trying to delete and it posted. Don't see a way to delete after the fact. Anyway, hope you are right. I do not celebrate or parade their demise. I am a European American after all, if you are into such labels. I hope the Europeans fight. Don't see that happening though. Right now it seems all they are fighting for is more hand outs from the government.

      • Indio Viejo

        No, they will convert. They will exchange socialism for islamism in a heartbeat because Islam is totalitarian power. Europeans ike this.

    Geert Wilders in Malmö
    “Brussels where Islamic gangs with Kalashnikovs have chased the police from certain neighborhoods…”

    Muslims are obeying the Quran to wage war. Our treasonous Western ruling elites have imported many millions of Muslims into our countries to wage jihad against us. Instead of responding to the Islamic jihad waged daily against non-Muslims inside our countries, and have our military go into every no-go Muslim area and deport the jihadist Muslims, the Muslims are allowed to continue their war against us. Muslim immigration is continually increased by Western ruling elites to facilitate greater war against non-Muslim innocents.

    I hope Wilders corrects his assessment of the Libya debacle. I would like to hear back from Fjordman with any news about that. I'm optimistic as it seems Wilders listens to Fjordman.
    On another note, I was very disappointed to learn that Wilders' party suffered a setback. I hope that it is indeed temporary.

  • Tabris

    Religion is always used by the power elite to control the masses.

    The last 50 years, Christianity lost its grip on the people and therefore another more controlling and suppressing religion needs to be introduced.

    All of this is orchestrated by the 10% power elite.

    These power elitist want total control over the population and have invented many systems in the past like Nazism and Communism to accomplish these goals. These systems failed however and now Islamism is the next in line

    The 80% of the masses is blind and not aware of what is happening and follow anyone who is in charge and throws them a bone.

    Then there are the other 10% like Geert that try unsuccessfully to open the eyes of the masses by showing how their freedom is taken away.

    • Drakken

      But it only takes 10 % to get the ball rolling.

      "Religion is always used by the power elite to control the masses."
      Aagh – the familiar Marxist dogma.
      Your analysis is screwed up and wrong, unless you are trying to imply that communism/leftism is a secular religion. Anyway, note that Islam is not a true religion but an imperialistic political theory akin to communism etc.

  • patience

    Mr.Wilders is a courageous man.

    It’s completely perverse that the governments in Europe invite in people that are destroying the very citizens that vote for and pay them.

    They are responsible for the female ,cultural and societal terrorism that is over taking their countries .They are selling their children into a future of a dark age of rape,robbery,sexual slavery,murder and forced religious conversions .

    They sold equal rights,freedom and security years ago. As evidenced by Fjordman being driven out of his homeland .

    Apparently European politicians won’t be satisfied until their citizens are reduced to psychologically terrorized and physically abused shadows of human beings.

    It’s amazing they not only learned nothing from WWI & WWII but they invited a worse evil in than Hitler , and are amusing themselves watching the destruction of their people . They must hate their own families terribly .

    It is shameful and despicable .

    Haj Mohammed Effendi Amin el-Husseini (Arabic: محمد أمين الحسيني‎, Muhammad Amin al-Husayni;[1] born c. 1897;[2][3] died 4 July 1974) was a Palestinian Arab nationalist and Muslim leader in Mandatory Palestine.

    Throughout World War II, al-Husseini worked for the Axis Powers as a broadcaster in propaganda targeting Arab public opinion. The Mufti was paid “an absolute fortune” of 50,000 marks a month (when a German field marshal was making 25,000 marks a year). Walter Winchell called him 'the Arabian Lord Haw-Haw.'

    He recruited Muslim volunteers for the German armed forces operating in the Balkans. Beginning in 1941, al-Husseini visited Bosnia, and convinced Muslim leaders that a Muslim S.S. division would be in the interest of Islam. In spite of these and other propaganda efforts, "only half of the expected 20,000 to 25,000 Muslims volunteered'. The largest division was the 13th Handschar division, which conducted operations against Communist partisans in the Balkans from February 1944. The creation of this division displeased the Croatian government, which raised numerous minor obstacles to its activities, out of fear that it would serve as a basis for Muslim autonomy.

    In 1942, al-Husseini helped organize Arab students and North African emigres in Germany into the "Arabisches Freiheitkorps," an Arab Legion in the German Army that hunted down Allied parachutists in the Balkans and fought on the Russian front.

    On 1 March 1944, while speaking on Radio Berlin, al-Husseini said: 'Arabs, rise as one man and fight for your sacred rights. Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and religion. This saves your honor. God is with you.' He was promised the leadership of Palestine after German troops had driven out the British. At the end of the war, he was allowed to flee to Syria as part of an attempt to prevent the alienation of Middle Eastern regimes.

    I believe the European elites will convert to Islam in order to continue in power. Islam being a Totaitarian political-religious ideology, would be easy for former Communist and Fascist. The Arabs will only be the instrument of the political elites.

    It seems that being informed is useless. We know and we still surrender.
    We don't deserve it, but leftist dhimmies deserve all the evil their beloved tyrants (muslims) can do.

    I prefer to die young and don't see any of my wish realized rather than live until my old age pretending to be an antisemotic muslim, wearing burqa and being a slave of some marauder.

    I am concerned that I have a few friends who are moderationists and believe we can all live together. (I have not forwarded this to them) I too like to believe we can live together but there is the problem. There are people who will not. The same people who want to change you to their way in YOUR country. These same people set up information booths at markets and public venues saying they just want to be understood yet they will NOT stand up and decry the murdering ways of their fellow believers. They will smile at you and be pleasant whilst still seeing you as an infidel.
    INFIDEL: insult for someone without religious beliefs. an old word used as an insult for someone who has no religious beliefs or who has religious beliefs that are different from yours
    We open our doors to these people who will ultimately slit your throat. The moderates of this world today will not be around to see it happen therefore it is easy to be such. The Jews warned the world at large in the 30’s about what was occurring and no one listened. Many millions of people died as a result and they were not all Jews. Has nothing changed?
