Nevermind all the hate incited and carried out by Muslims all over the world.

Dutch News

The Amsterdam court has ruled that the Public Prosecutor’s Office should after all prosecute the right-wing populist politician Geert Wilders for remarks about Muslims and Islam. The court found that there was a case of inciting hatred, discrimination and insulting language to answer. Earlier the Public Prosecutor decided not to proceed against Mr Wilders, which sparked numerous protests from organisations and individuals.

The court regarded Mr Wilders’ remarks as punishable in law in view of both their content and the manner of presentation. The judges characterized the presentation as comprising “one-sided, generalised phrasing characterised by a radical nature, constant repetition and increasing ferocity”. The court further ruled that the prosecution of the PVV party leader would not conflict with the right to freedom of expression.

Mr Wilders said it was “a black day for freedom of speech” and for himself. Although he was confident he would be exonerated, he was afraid the trial might last so long and cost the PVV so much that the future existence of the party would be jeopardised.

    If they are going to prosecute Geert for that , then they better prosecute those rag-heads that carry signs calling for the beheading of this offender or that offender. They better damn well go after those hate-preaching imams too. And, they better close down mosques that are used for preaching hate. Europeans were sure stupid for letting pricks like that get into public office.

They can go to the devil, (they will) sooner the better these 'muzzies' meet their virgins (ha – hahahahahahahahahaha) maybe their twat should be cut off, before meeting the virgins with NO Virginia. (what an unhappy bunch that would be) LOL
