Controversial anti-Islamic Dutch MP, Geert Wilders, is in Melbourne tonight, heading into a storm of protests from politicians, and from religious and community groups. They say he’s spreading a message of hate.
Geert Wilders is a victim of Islam, of sharia and Muslim thugs who want to cut his throat for speaking the truth. Â The unelected Gillard mob and her Muslim enablers are spreading hate against this brave freedom fighter who puts his life on the line to defend western culture and civilisation.
Enough is enough: stop Islam, stop Labor’s sellout of the country we love, stop theÂ soldiers of allah from making the country Islamic!
Protests likely as
controversial Dutch MP Geert Wilders changes venue
John Masanauskas/Herald Sun/February 18, 2013
POLICE will monitor the comments of
controversialanti-Islamic Dutch MP Geert Wilders as he faces possible unruly protests in Melbourne tomorrow.
Mr Wilders, who opposes the so-called “Islamisation” of Europe, had been booked to speak at a CBD venue tomorrow night.
But it is understood his meeting will now be held in the outer suburbs after the venue’s owners cancelled amid fears of trouble from hard Left protesters.
[State Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Minister Nick Kotsiras] … “He is wrong, he is misinformed… he should speak to people at the grassroots level to find out exactly how all religions can work together in peace and harmony.”
(Nick Kotsiras’ views are Â about as ignorant and retarded as those from the commie apparatchiks during the cold war era. He would be well advised to read Koran,Â sira & hadith.)
Victorian Multicultural Commission chairman Chin Tan said Mr Wilders faced possible prosecution under the state’s racial and religious hatred laws if his comments were out of line. Â “He’s entitled to his views, as anyone is in Australia … but he’s got to be very careful that he does not take it beyond the point where it traverses the law of this country andÂ the expectations and what we here in Australia value,” he said.
“To the extent that he might may say something or in a particular manner that has legal implications, I’m sure someone or the police may take it up.”
Asked what he defined as incitement to hatred, Mr Tan said it could include words to the effect ‘Well, they (Muslims) don’t have the capacity to fit in and that they are not capable of being part of the community in some way”.
“To that extent, when there are groups that seek to differentiate, to cast aspersions on a group in terms of their values and what they believe in, that will create disharmony in society,” he said.
Good night Australia. There needs to be an urgent purge on dolts like ‘Mr Tan’ and Â Nick Kotsiras. They certainly do not represent Australia as we know it.
Organiser of Mr Wilders’ visit, Andrew Horwood from the Q Society, said he was concerned about any assault on free speech in Australia.
“We need to be able to talk about issues that concern the future of this country and we need to be able to discuss them frankly,” he said.
“We would like to think that in Australia in 2013 that a group of adults could sit down and have a discussion without any protests.”
State Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Minister Nick Kotsiras said his department would not be monitoring Mr Wilders’ comments, but the Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission would respond to any complaints.
“I support freedom of speech, but with freedom comes responsibility,” he said.
That’s the Muslim line, you dhimmi dimbulb. Can’t you think for yourself? A Greek should know better….
“He is wrong, he is misinformed… he should speak to people at the grassroots level to find out exactly how all religions can work together in peace and harmony.”
A coalition of religious and multicultural groups have issued a statement in support of Victorian multiculturalism on the eve of Mr Wilders’ public appearance in Melbourne.
Groups including the multicultural commission, the Victorian Council of Churches, the Islamic Council of Victoria and the equal opportunity commission have said they welcome challenging ideas and debate, but that “inciting hatred and animosity towards specific cultural or faith-based communities has no place in Victoria”.
They should take a look at the coming “Australian Islamic Peace Conference“Â where 3 to 4000 Islamic headbangers of the worst kind will obsess over the coming caliphate and how they will enslave the kuffar.
Islamic Council board member Mohamad Tabaa said that Mr Wilders did not reflect the views of most Australians and his Freedom Party was losing support in the Netherlands.
“We think Australians are quite reasonable and that they will see through his speech for what it is,” he said.
Mr Tabaa said the Islamic Council was notÂ endorsing or organising any protests against the MP.
Leftist groups have been using social media to plan protests.

The defender of our rights has become its enemy: Â How dare the Human Rights Council want us muzzled
I was shockedÂ that the head of the Human Rights Commission on the weekend supported proposed laws against free speech so draconian that even the Gillard Government has had to back off.
Even more incredible was the sole reason Professor Gillian Triggs gave for (reluctantly) supporting the Government scrapping its plan to extend the offences of “offend” and “insult” – already in section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act – to every kind of “protected attribute” from a person’s political opinions to their “social origin”.
Triggs said while she did still want laws against offending people, “the public voice” was against the government’s attack on free speech “at the moment”.
As I said, it is astonishing that the public must now protect possibly its most important freedom against the objections of the Human Rights Council itself. The defender of our rights has become its enemy.
The IPA’s James Paterson has more about Triggs’ outing as an enemy of free speechÂ in the video above, which also includes Triggs’ astonishing admissions.
