Religion is not a race.
Do you live in the Netherlands? No? Oh my god, what a surprise.
Fact is, Wilders is playing on racist motives. That's why his following exists of uneducated people and fringe neo-nazi type of folk, including racists.
Wilders Islam hate is not rooted in bigotry it's rooted in racism. Now this might be hard to comprehend for you, but, the majority of Islam bashers in the Netherlands are either a. uninformed, or b. have racist tendencies. I'm just waiting for the stupid people who voted for him to realize what kind of crap they pulled.
Notice how Wilders' is referred to as "POPULIST"? Ever wonder why?
Uhmmm... do you live in the Netherlands?
Your facts are not THE facts, and the assumption that his following exists of uneducated people.. well thats shows your intelligence.
Like Maslo already explains, Islam is not a race but an ideology, and that ideology is the reason why Wilders has been surrounded with security.
Do take in consideration that so many dutch people vote for him because of what is happening in their neighborhood
Murder and threats, robbing, the brutality, the intimidation and so on, they themselfs created the fruitfull ground for Wilders to walk on, hi did not just desided to bash some muslims.
Last but not least, if it was racism, they would have convicted him but they cannot convict him for criticising their ideology.
Ahh, you know if we were to search the backgrounds of all our politicians there would be a lot of garbage on the table, one would almost think that apart from being politician they are also ordinairy people like you and me
Furthermore, the facts speak for themselfs, he is not convicted.
Now to show you that i am not for him, i also do not agree on his view, in fact to me it shows his lack of intelligence.
That may look like arrogance from my side, but consider this, aside from nationality and (political)ideology religion we are all humans, flesh and blood.
So why are we fighting over something stupid like that?
That to me is bogus.
O come on, your opinion is not the opinion of others, and it would be great if we looked beyond politics and the noise it produces.
Don't lower yourself by generalizing others, by that you'd be doing precisely what you are accusing Wilders of.
This Wilders has some double standards.
But is some one draws a cartoon of Wilders as a Nazi camp guard than it is Muslim terrorism.
In WW2 many people followed the nazi party line and many where happy to get rid of the Jews (terrorists).
Than after the war the Indonesians where the bad guys.
Than the blacks from surinam where the problem.
Now its the Muslims.
Who is next.
Wilders angry about Nazi cartoon
They want safety, not being robbed, stabbed or intimidated by groups of disrespectfull youth.
I do not go into theoretics about israel and mossad and so on, but base it on the people arround me.
To say that his voters are nazi racists for me is a bridge to far, hence dont lower yourself.
