The Dhimmitude Of Britain Continues: Geert Wilders Banned

This begs the question, how soon will sites like The Jawa Report, Little Green Footballs, and the Counterterrorism Blog be banned in Britain? Dutch protest Britain’s ban of right-wing lawmaker

The British government has banned Dutch right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders from visiting the country to show his anti-Islam film “Fitna” at the Houses of Parliament.

Wilders was invited by a member of British Parliament’s upper house, the House of Lords, to show his 15-minute film, which criticizes the Quran as a “fascist book.” But he was informed Tuesday in a letter from the British Embassy he would not be allowed into Britain.

The film sparked violent protests around the Muslim world last year for linking Quranic verses with footage of terrorist attacks.

“Don’t tell people our religion is violent, or we will get violent.”

Wilders has lived for years with round-the-clock security because of his fierce criticism of Islam. He has urged his government to ban the Quran in the same way it did Adolf Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” and warned of a “tsunami” of Islam swamping the Netherlands.

Sounds peaceful of the RoP, eh? Wilders says he will defy the ban, and travel to England. Will he be arrested? And this all happened after a protest was lodged by Muslim House of Lords member Nazir Ahmed.

But in a statement the Home Office said it “opposes extremism in all its forms” and would work to “stop those who want to spread extremism, hatred and violent messages in our communities from coming to our country.”

Wilders said the embassy letter informed him he was being refused entry because his views “threaten community harmony and therefore public security” in Britain.

I guess Britain has forgotten 7/11. Maybe they should look across the Channel and see all the constant violence and burnt cars via the RoP.

Charles at Little Green Footballs does have a point about Wilders, though

However, Wilders himself does not deserve to be called an icon of free speech, since he explicitly wants to ban the Koran and make Islam illegal in Europe; in other words, he wants to take away other people’s freedom of speech and freedom of religion, and that is simply wrong. Book banning is what totalitarians do, not believers in free speech.

Good point.

    It is disgusting that Britian gives such influence to its troublesome minority group. The UK allows in rotters from Africa and Asia and it allows in Arab extremists. It gives these people asylum, opportunity and welfare. What does the UK get in return? Trouble and crime. And now the UK won’t allow in an elected official of an EU country. Sad and pathetic.

    Geert wilders is a racist bigot, see below.

    Geert Wilders version of “freedom of speech”…
    1). Dutch Fundamental rights as per the PPV and Geert Wilders….Abolition of Article 1 of the Constitution, the legal standard under which all Dutch residents in principle, are equal before the law.
    2). Partial and permanent restrictions on freedom of expression in the form of a prohibition to hold sermons (all sermons, this goes for Synagogues too) in a language other than Dutch.
    3). Partial and temporary suspension of freedom of religion in the form of a ban on building mosques for five years (Wilders is as insane as Adolph Hitler).
    4). Partial and temporary suspension of the freedom of education in the form of a prohibition against the establishment of Islamic schools for five years. Muslims under his thumb for now, next, guess who, from his Neo Nazi, Anti-semitism Party links to the Vlaams Belang group.

    Three countries have now either banned Geert Wilders from entry or have issued an arrest warrant or have set a date for his trial on hate speech, INTEPOL needs to tag this guy.
    1). Geert Wilders to stand trial in his home Country of Holland for “hate speech
    2). Jordan court wants Geert Wilders arrested, One option ask Interpol to issue an international arrest warrant for Geeret Wilders.
    3). Anti-Islam Dutch Lawmaker Geert Wilders Sent Back to Netherlands Amid U.K. Ban
