The trial of Geert Wilders is underway in the Netherlands. He is accused of fomenting hatred and discrimination against Muslims as well as "racism." How did he do this? He told the truth about Islam, the most vile of major ideologies in force today. His film "Fitna" featured quotes from the Qur'an, juxtaposed with actual video and photographic images of recent Islamic atrocities. At the end of the film Wilders asks Muslims to "tear out" these pages of hatred from the Qur'an.
Note the irony: Geert Wilders is on trial for telling the truth. His trial is an effort by the Dutch leftists to install speech codes into Dutch society and to end the western right of free speech. Muslims will remain a protected class, above criticism or suspicion.
Wilders is being limited in the number of witnesses he can call: out of 18 requested, only 3 were approved by the court.
As the Gates of Vienna has stated, Geert Wilders is a hero. It is his head that is on the block, it is he who must undergo the scrutiny of a kangaroo court that is intent on exchanging modernity for barbarism. But it is not only Geert Wilders who is on trial. It is Western civilization.
