When geert wilders speaks, people listen.
Holland’s most successful politician, Geert Wilders, has accused judges trying him on charges of “inciting hatred” of scandalous bias and demanded they be replaced.
After being accused of bias against Wilders the Dutch inquisition Â decided to go ahead with the Â charade anyhow, and promptly slipped up again:
Thanks to Vlad Tepes & Klein Verzet, the excellent Dutch blog.
Today the trial against Geert Wilders continued with the same judges The trial day started with a screening ofÂ Fitna.
Before the screening we already had the first incident, a woman (plaintiff) asked if she could leave the room. She did not want to see Fitna she declared. The president of the court answers:
“I can imagine…”
Wilders lawyer complained, he could not believe what he just had heard (again a value statement of the court).

The kangaroo trial in progress
by H. Numan
I will not speak of a fair trial against Geert Wilders, but only refer to the kangaroo trial. It is not a fair trial at all. The verdict has yet to be announced, but will in all likelihood be guilty.
Why call this kangaroo trial a kangaroo trial? Judge for yourself:
- Minister Hirsch Ballin, one of the most outspoken opponents of Geert Wilders, wasÂ highly in favor of such a trial.
- The presiding kangaroo Mr. J. W. MoorsÂ made some biased remarks when Wilders claimed the right to remain silent.
- The kangaroo heading the appeal chamber, Mr. Frans Bauduin, is aÂ member of the board of the Dutch Morocco Fund.
- The defense asked for 18 witnesses. The court allowed only three.
- The trial has been set for 7 days. This is unusually long for a court case in the Netherlands. Even a case like this.
- The verdict will be announced on the day that Theo van Gogh was murdered. Nice touch, eh?
In any other court case where the judge makes a snide remark to the defense, the case is either dismissed outright, or the judge relieved of the case. It doesn’t happen very often, though.
Here’s Geert Wilders full speech in German, thanks to Vlad Tepes with English subtitles. This speech may well go down as one most significant in this young century. I hope it finally places some nails in coffin of European self loathing.
