Netherlands: Political Opposition to Open Border Policies Criminalized - Geert Wilders Targeted (Video)

The left-wing Dutch government targeted Geert Wilders because the politician asked his voters during an election campaign event whether they wanted more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands.

On Tuesday, the Dutch Supreme Court upheld the conviction of “group insult” against Netherland’s Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders. The opposition party leader’s non-violent language at a campaign rally in 2014 was deemed an “insult” to people of Moroccan background. This is the latest example of a western court curtailing free speech and political views they disagree with regarding anything negative about Islam and third world Muslim migration.

The Supreme Court did not look at the substance of the case but only at how the Court of Appeal viewed the facts. According to the judges, there are limits to freedom of expression, and Wilders has exceeded them.

On May 18 this year, the left-wing attorney general advised the Supreme Court to uphold the court’s conviction. However, Wilders has always asserted that his conviction was nothing more than a political witch hunt directed by the former Netherlands minister Ivo Opstelten of the VVD, the Dutch liberals, and the Public Prosecution Service.

Wilders responded on Twitter shortly after the verdict, “The Netherlands is corrupt, and the rule of law is bankrupt. I will not care about the decision of the Supreme Court and continue to speak the truth. If necessary, they’ll just throw me in the bin.” The leader continued, “Over 1 million people voted for me, and I will fight for them. Always.”

Geert Wilders 2014 Political Conviction

Wilders was found guilty of group insult by the appeal court last September but cleared of inciting hatred and discrimination. Neither court gave him a sentence.

While campaigning in the Hague in March 2014, Wilders argued the need for fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands. Wilders argued fewer Moroccans should be accepted into the country. At an election rally, he asked his supporters whether they wanted “more or fewer Moroccans?” After the crowd responded “fewer, fewer,” Wilders said, “We’re going to organize that.”

As reported by Gatestone, the context in which he said it was an election campaign in March 2014 against the backdrop of considerable problems with Moroccans in the Netherlands. According to Dutch journalist Timon Dias:

Statistics show that police have arrested 65% of all Moroccan youths and that one-third of that group has been arrested more than five times.

Wilders emphasizes the inordinate costs associated with the disproportionately high number of Dutch Moroccans registered as social welfare beneficiaries and implicated in welfare fraud.

Proof of Political Witch Hunt

Interestingly, the left-wing ruling government in the Netherlands targetted the leader of an opposition party yet, did not prosecute several social Labour Party politicians who stated:

  • “We also have sh*t Moroccans over here.” Rob Oudkerk, a Dutch Labour Party (PvDA) politician.
  • “We must humiliate Moroccans.” Hans Spekman, PvDA politician.
  • “Moroccans have the ethnic monopoly on trouble-making.” Diederik Samsom, PvDA politician.

Wilders argued that the left-wing government’s choice not to prosecute the socialist politicians proves the trial against Wilders is discriminatory and nothing but a political witch hunt.

Geert Wilders Reaction to His 2016 Conviction

After the 2016 decision to convict Wilders, he demanded a retrial. Wilders slammed the government’s politically motivated trial, which took place a few months before a parliamentary election.

As the leader of a political party, opposing government policies that affect your country’s safety and welfare, such as illegal mass migration, immigration, or problems with different populations, is his job. As such, the Dutch government has effectively criminalized opposition to their policies.

Wilders words did not incite violence or prosecution of Moroccan’s, nor did he jeopardize national security or public safety.

Furthermore, the leader argued the court was restricting his freedom of speech. Wilders released a video in 2016 discussing the conviction and his supposed “speech crimes.” Wilders warned the Netherland’s Prime Minister Mark Rutte and other left-wing leaders; he will never allow them to silence him or his party,

And I also have a message for Prime Minister Rutte and the rest of the multicultural elite: You will not succeed in silencing me and defeating the PVV. Support for the Party for Freedom is stronger than ever and keeps growing every day. The Dutch want their country back and cherish their freedom. It will not be possible to put the genie of positive change back in the bottle.

Netherlands Aids and Abets Those Trying to Harm Wilders

Despite Wilder’s seven-year battle to preserve the freedom of speech in the Netherlands, that freedom appears to be all but lost. The highest court in the Netherlands’ has adopted the sharia blasphemy laws and sided with the increasing number of Muslims, migrants, and leftists in The Netherlands.

While the Netherlands ‘ police and government harass and prosecute Wilders for speaking out against the threats of importing incompatible and sharia-adherent Islamic migrants, these migrants can freely spread hate and violent threats towards their host nation and its citizens.

Geert Wilders, who is thought of as “The Donald Trump of The Netherlands,” has lost his personal freedoms due to the constant threat of death by Muslims and leftists for speaking out against the threats Islam represents as well as Europe’s suicidal open border policies. For almost two decades, Wilders has lived with round-the-clock police protection and in a safe house. The Islamic terrorist group Al Qaeda has also placed Wilders on their hit list.

While the Netherlands ‘ police and government harass and prosecute Wilders for speaking out against the threats of importing incompatible and sharia-adherent Islamic migrants, these migrants can freely spread hate and violent threats towards their host nation and its citizens.

Will Wilders Continue His Legal Fight

A judgment by the Supreme Court is actually the last legal possibility in the Netherlands. Therefore, there is no possible further appeal.

The only legal step left for Wilders to fight his conviction is to submit his case to the compromised European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Here citizens can file a complaint against a state if they believe they have violated their human rights. Unfortunately, the ECHR, “which has jurisdiction over 47 European countries, and whose rulings are legally binding on all 28 member states of the European Union,” embraced Islamic blasphemy laws years ago.

  • Nice essay. Shows the horror inevitably (it seems) coming. Unfortunately, the apparently unavoidable entropic forces inherent in Western legal communities means our cultures will be picked and hacked at until ruin.
