Geert Wilders found guilty of hate speech

TelegraphUK: Dutch far-right wing politician Geert Wilders was today found guilty of hate speech and inciting racial discrimination for leading a chant calling for “fewer, fewer” Moroccans in the Netherlands.

Presiding Judge Hendrik Steenhuis said the court would not impose a sentence because the conviction was punishment enough for a democratically elected lawmaker. Prosecutors had asked judges to fine him 5,000 euros ($5,300).

Wilders, head of the PVV Freedom Party, was not present to hear the judgement but his lawyer Geert-Jan Knoops immediately issued a statement to say that he would appeal.  read more

  1. How appropriate that this come on the heels of our Pamela Geller discussions.
    There is essentially no punishment. But I have a feeling this will have an effect opposite of what was intended.

  2. They took him all the way to court just to finger wag and ask for a couple thousand bucks?
    When’s the next showtime?

  3. “… far-right wing politician Geert Wilders …”
    (exaggerated fake news description, perhaps?)

    Soooooo … he’s a rabid Monarchist?
    Or does “faaaaaarrrr-right” just indicate that he doesn’t want his country overrun with feral izlamic murderous savage rapists?

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. Yes, he has to pay his lawyers, but he also has just gotten the most priceless PR boost he could ever have. Sounds like the Dutch judges are just like Dems who also weren’t listening.

  5. Badge of honor. Refusing to attend their three ring circus and letting them make a mockery of justice is the only way to go.

  6. Those thought police may have just created a new PM called Geert Wilders. I know they have an election just around the corner. How Ab Fab would that be?

  7. for a moment, i thought they were throwing him into the oubliette…then i read the story….looks like they’ve just given him a very large in-kind campaign donation……

    may God watch over him…..he needs it……
