"Take Stock" in the light of the Wilders trial it is worth comparing the rise of the Nazi regime. First, this was done with three means: with legal blessing, propaganda and intimidation. We see all three factors in the Wilders case, especially the legal environment that is intended to shut him down and eliminate him for election success. The propaganda bit is done today by the leftifts politicians and the media and intimidation by the islamists. What is far worse today is the level antisemitism present in the muslim world. I have seen hours and hours of Nazi propaganda speeches but I do not recall masses of people shouting slogans against Jews. People wree shouting for Hitler right, but against anybody ? What you see in the Wilders' fitna film is far more explicit than what Hitler or Goebbels said in their speeches.
