Wilders Calls for World Wide First Amendment

Dutch MP and free speech champion, Geert Wilders delivered an address in New York last night. Here's an excerpt (Hat Tip: Atlas Shrugs - see her post for images):

Here's the entire text. It ends: "Our enemies should know: we will never apologize for being free men, we will never bow for the combined forces of Mecca and the left. And we will never surrender. We stand on the shoulders of giants. There is no stronger power than the force of free men fighting for the great cause of liberty. Because freedom is the birthright of all man."

Think about the madness that this man, now for years on end, hasn't been able to live a normal life just because he is critical of an ideology - and we all accept that as a given!

Just how far our values and liberties are being sold out by the idealistic collectivists can be gauged from this video (also courtesy Pam at Atlas, interviewing historian and Human Rights Commissioner, David Littman. Read the post here).

The International Free Press Society and Wilders have posted a press release on next Friday's events. Details here:

On Friday, February 27, 2009, Dutch Member of Parliament Geert Wilders, founder and floor leader of the Freedom Party (PVV), and the International Free Press Society (IFPS), in conjunction with the Center for Security Policy, will discuss recent attacks on free speech worldwide, especially the recent legal actions against Wilders and other political leaders and journalists. The International Free Press Society will announce a global initiative to protect free speech from laws that criminalize any criticisms of Islam or the doctrines of Shariah. (...) >>>

Also on Friday night: Wilders will deliver an address at a reception at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, site of the Conservative Political Action Conference, on Friday, February 27, at 6:00PM. (...) The reception is sponsored by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Atlas Shrugs, Jihad Watch, and Dr. Andrew Bostom. It is open to the public. (...) >>>

"Wilders calls for world-wide 'first amendment'"

Is this supposed to be a good thing?

World-wide? Enforced by whom? So he wants a One World Government? Who does he expect to join him? The UN, that is increasingly run by Muslims? Socialist One Worlders who despise him? Neoconservative and Trotskyite slaves of Islam like Schwartz, Krauthammer, Khalilzad, Bush?

Wilders is quickly blowing whatever political capital he has earned. He's already alienated many Christians with his strange call to defend Christian civilization without the whole "Christ thing".

Christianity without Christ? We had that already. It's called Communism.

People like Wilders are Communism's useful idiots. Marx proposed to support all socialist movements where necessary, with the goal of eventually replacing them.

At present they support the mainstream so-called "Christian" Democrat parties in Holland, because they are the most effective at implementing socialism.

If these CD parties have outlived their usefulness, and the Dutch "masses" shift their allegiance to Wilders et al, then the Communists will infiltrate The Freedom Party.

Wilders' comrades are of the type Marx referred to as:

"Conservative or Bourgeois Socialism:

"A part of the bourgeoisie is desirous of redressing social grievances, in order to secure the continued existence of bourgeois society.

"To this section belong economists, philanthropists, humanitarians, improvers of the condition of the working class, organisers of charity, members of societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals, temperance fanatics, hole-and-corner reformers of every imaginable kind."
