elisseievna, I agree. As noone can defend freedom of speech as such. One can only and must defend those who exercise it and exercise it with the intent to preserve it. Wilders is such a man. Another option is do have it on the coins and bills. Eternal gratitude to France for their slogan "liberté,egalité,fraternité" on the french-made one-euro-coins. It is freedom first in this slogan. Never believe anyone who has freedom in any other order.
