Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: Its dangerous to speak out in the Netherlands

Submitted by Peter Herz (United States), Jan 25, 2010 at 15:47

Thanks for the education in the political system in the Netherlands. Are there any remnants of Willem Groen van Prinsterer's and Abraham Kuyper's Anti-Revolutionary Party or the formerly strong Roman Catholic Parties that were once active in the Netherlands? If so, how do they see the Wilders case?

Does the Netherlands have a written constitution, and, if so, does it have any provisions for free speech?
