“I am sure that the last days of the European Union – it’s like the old Roman Empire – are coming. It’s just a matter of time.” — Geert Wilders
Dutch politician and the odds-on next leader of the Netherlands, Geert Wilders, recently made some stunning comments about Islam that are sure to make life more dangerous for him than it already is.
Wilders has long been a firebrand in Dutch politics, defending free speech, renouncing the works of Islam, and calling for the Netherlands to cut ties with the tyrannical European Union (EU). He’s been arrested and forced to endure show trials for his decision to speak out against the scourge of Islam on Dutch culture. He’s survived several attempts on his life, and yet he continues to speak out in defense of the Dutch people and Western Civilization.
In fact, you probably remember that in 2015 two Muslim men attacked a free speech conference in Garland, Texas injuring an officer before being killed by local police. Wilders was one of the targets of their attack, which explains why he is forced to travel with security wherever he goes.
In January, Wilders may have made himself even more of a target with an interview he gave to Europa Magazin, where he continued to decry radical Islam and he praised the American people for bravely electing President Trump.
Specifically, Wilders argued that Islam is NOT a religion but actually an ideology that is incompatible with freedom and Western culture.
“I believe that Islam and freedom are incompatible. I’m not talking about people… But I believe that the Islamic ideology is very dangerous…
Islam as an ideology does not allow freedom. Look at almost all the countries in the world where Islam is dominant – you see a total lack of civil society, of rule of law, of freedom for journalists, women, Christians, or even somebody who wants to leave Islam, an apostate…
Not only is the Quran more full of anti-Semitism than Mein Kampf – another terrible book – ever was, but one token of proof of totalitarianism is that you are not allowed to leave. That’s the proof of totalitarianism…
You are allowed to leave Christianity or Judaism and become an atheist or the follower of another religion; you are not allowed to leave fascism, you are not allowed to leave Communism. And still today in Holland, in Germany, in the Arab and Islamic world, the penalty is death if you want to leave Islam…
That kind of thinking, that kind of violence within an ideology is something that we should not import…”
Over and over again Wilders attempts to make the same point that many conservatives in America are making. This is not about individual people, or about ethnicity, or race… this is about culture. Islam is unable to assimilate into Western culture because the Koran and other religious teachings in Islam forbid it. Islam is incompatible with Western culture because it refuses to abide by the rules, traditions, and philosophies advanced by our culture. It’s about saving our culture, not about discriminating against another people group.
