227761-geert-wildersChris Kenny has penned an excellent article in today’s Australian about visiting European politician, Geert Wilders.

Unfortunately Mr. Kenny erroneously claim that Wilders wants to ban the Koran, which a falsehood.

Geert argues that with the banning of Mein Kampf in The Netherlands on the grounds of hate-speech that the Koran should also be banned.

Hey you are very happy here, you applauded the fact that Mein Kampf was outlawed in the Netherlands. If you are really consistent, you should, for the same arguments that you use as liberal politicians to outlaw Mein Kampf, outlaw the Koran as well. – Geert Wilders

His actual position is a rhetorical argument, based on the notion that neither book should be banned for inciting violence and intolerance but if you’re going to ban one, you should ban similar texts.

He is actually not calling for the Koran to be banned but calling for consistency in applying the law.  One law for all. Including muslims.

Anyway, the rest of the article is well written but it’s behind a paywall so all you too tight to pay for your news wont be able to read it but the essential element is found in this paragraph at the end of the article sums up the problem.

Geert Wilders continues his visit under tight security. It occurs to me to ask Hizb ut-Tahrir’s Uthman Badar whether he has ever required armed protection in Australia. “No,” he says. – Chris Kenny

It seems that some people think that if you darte to disagree with their beliefs, then they want to silence you and or even worse, try to kill you.

Seems fair to me, because that’s the kind of values this country was built upon. Oppression and totalitarianism

This warning is exactly the message that Geert Wilders, a democratically elected parliamentarian from The Netherlands whose party represents nearly a third of Dutch people, is trying to get across to people.  This is his “lived experience“.

Imagine the furore if someone tried to do the same to the Greens party and their message, given that they far less representative in comparison to Mr Wilders in his native Netherlands?

Strangely enough, the useful idiots of the lunatic far left fringe do not understand how they are being used as willing pawns. The alliance between the radical Left and extremist Islamists is an example of Blair’s Law, which states:

…the ongoing process by which the world’s multiple idiocies are becoming one giant, useless force.

Follow up editorial from the Herald Sun, which correctly states that Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly are two cornerstones of our democracy.  You are free to oppose but not prevent others from exercising their own freedoms.
