I find myself having to laugh at the irony of the situation. A motley crowd of protesters turned up to stop Geert Wilders from talking to a crowd of 500 people last night. Their concern was that he was going to incite violence against the Muslim people. The protesters did not want the people to hear what is going on in the Holland, because as far as they are concerned the truth is not allowed to be told. They called him a racist and tried to stop his right to Freedom of Speech. What seems to escape their minds is the fact that they are the racists, and the people inciting violence.
Freedom of Speech allows people to make up their own minds about what the truth is. Truth can stand on its own. Learn the truth and the truth will set you free. If you want to be bigoted, hide the truth, stop others from hearing the truth. Keep people in the dark like mushrooms. This is what these protesters want to do.
The people inciting the violence were the minority. They are worse than the person they are protesting against. Whether you agree with Geert Wilders, or not, is unimportant. What is important in our Western culture, is the fact that we can say what we want to say, and we can even disagree with each other. This is not the same in the Muslim culture. Speak against the Prophet and you will be threatened with beheading. Speak against Islam and the racist protesters are out trying to stop you from speaking.
These protesters are out of touch with the majority in this country. They think that their bullying tactics will frighten the majority, but I have this to say to them. It is too late! The majority are standing up, and they will stand up to you where it really counts…… at the ballot box.
The sad part of all of this, is that the protesters do not care what you think. All that matters to them is their opinion and they are prepared to ram it down our throats. For our own good I suggest that we listen to Geert Wilders and take him seriously. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was told to take Hitler seriously and he continued to say that nothing was wrong. There will be “peace in our time”. Let’s not have history repeat itself. Let us listen to the warning signs.
