The right wing is crazy though

Reader comment on item: In Defense of Europe's "Far-Right" Parties

Submitted by Anon (United States), Feb 8, 2019 at 16:24

Daniel - do you have any thoughts on the conversion of one of the members of Wilders team (Van Klaveren) to Islam? I think it illustrates the instability of the right wing as well as their intellectually unsound approach. The best defense against Islamism are people like Sam Harris or Bill Maher who are grounded in secularism rather than coming from a viewpoint that simply sees Christianity as correct and Islam as bad.

I wonder if the PVV conversions to Islam are quite what they seem to be.
