Robert Spencer: European Media Jihad Against Geert Wilders

As they lose their grip, the political and media elites are getting desperate. My latest in FrontPage:

The mainstream media in Western Europe and North America isn’t even pretending to be an objective news source anymore; instead, “journalists” are working openly to quell what looks increasingly, on both sides of the Atlantic, like a popular revolution against the hegemony of the self-appointed political and media aristocracy that seems hell-bent on driving Western civilization over the cliff. And so it’s time for another round of their Two-Minutes Hate against Dutch politician and freedom fighter Geert Wilders.

Wilders has yet again gone on trial in the Netherlands for “hate speech,” and this time the case against him is especially flimsy: as Europe is roiled by the criminal activity of Muslim migrants, he is being accused of “hate speech” for saying that the massive influx of immigrants from Morocco (from which most of the Muslim migrants in the Netherlands come) has to be stopped.

This trial could very easily backfire on the Dutch inquisitors, and make Wilders more popular than ever with the people of the Netherlands and Europe in general, as they are increasingly fed up with the political and media elites’ forcing them to accept a massive influx of Muslim migrants that ensures a future only of civil strife, bloodshed, and Sharia oppression.

Consequently, those elites are trying desperately to shore up their position. Wilders chanted “No more Moroccans” at a rally. The horror! To any sane person, this means “Stop the influx of Moroccan immigrants who only inflate crime rates and welfare rolls.” To the media, which at this point is quite insane, insofar as insanity means an inability or refusal to accept reality, this means “Genocide!”

And so, in this Deutsche Welle (DW) piece by freelance “journalist” Teri Schultz, we’re told that European Parliament lawmaker Cecile Kyenge, who was born in Congo, had “numerous racial slurs – not to mention, bananas, literally – thrown at her, along with suggestions she go back to ‘her country.’” Does this have anything to do with the crime and civil strife that are the foundations for Wilders’ position? Of course not, but Wilders, Schultz tells us, is (of course) “far-right,” that all-purpose and meaningless semaphore that serves only to signal to right-thinking Deutsche Welle readers that Wilders is, as far as the media elites are concerned, unsavory, and must be opposed and shunned, his positions left unexamined.

Schultz contacted me to serve as the villain of her piece, being sure to tell her hapless readers that I am “known for extreme anti-Islam views,” to make sure that if any of them are foolish enough to find themselves agreeing with me, they will immediately reverse themselves and get their minds right. The term “extreme” also, since the Western governing class unanimously refers to jihad terrorists as “extremists,” also implies that I am a terrorist.

After the article came out, I challenged Schultz on this; she replied: “I don’t think even you would consider your views ‘mainstream’, do you?” I responded: “Absolutely yes. My views were the broad mainstream in the Western world from 632 AD until the 1960s. What changed? Not Islamic teaching.” To that she said: “Okay. You’d have to argue it with another expert, which I am not. But thanks again for contributing.” Indeed, she is just a mouthpiece for the views the political and media elites want us to hold.

In any case, Schultz’s article merely reveals the desperation of the ruling class and the self-appointed opinion-shapers. They can call those of us who wish to defend the people and culture of Europe and North America “far-right” and “extreme” every day (and they do), but the public can see with their eyes what is happening. Wilders’ popularity isn’t growing because he is a charming fellow (which is, of course, not to say that he isn’t). It’s growing because he speaks the truths that the political and media elites are in a frenzy to obscure.

And it’s only going to get worse for them: the Brexit vote and the Trump candidacy (whether he wins or loses) shows that their hegemony is beginning to be challenged. Those challenges will continue, and grow. They will before too long be decisively voted out and repudiated.

One thought on “Robert Spencer: European Media Jihad Against Geert Wilders”

  1. ALL collectivists are paranoid slanderers and criminal gangsters.

    Followers of the “Left-Hand Path” are not only Satanists, they’re also all criminals.

    “Collectivism” (aka “communism;” “socialism”) is a stance people take where they pretend we have no rights to be left alone or to defend our selves, “but” we do have a right to expect demand and compel others to “help” (support) us, as we’re all really ever only perpetually helpless “victims.”

    This FORCED “altruism” stance is based on slander: that others having (earned and saved up) money, in some way denies it to, and steals it from others, preventing them from earning and saving up for them selves! “So” they have a right to take it “back!”

    What collectivists mean by demanding a “right” to “equality of opportunity” ISN’T the opportunity to earn and save, but a hidden equality of OUTCOME: the “opportunity” to steal and take and have the exact same amount of goods which others have already earned and saved up over time, without having to pass that same amount of time either earning nor saving it up!
    In other words, they slander, extort and conspire to rob others. On a social, not merely individual scale of theft, their gangster “collectivist” stance is a principle of multiple ongoing, open seditions, of endless attack plots towards everyone else – it’s treason, and so the penalty for advocating such a permanent state of open and perpetual rebellion (or as the Marxists put it, of “Eternal Struggle”) should be the DEATH penalty!

    Bottom line: “Collectivism is slanderous criminal gangster extortion leading to slavery; it’s also self-defeating idiocy, like this:

    “We have to form the largest gang to attack everyone else (“to defend ourselves”) because they’re all doing the same thing already anyway!”
