Reader comment on item: Western Civilization on Trial: Why We Should Be Watching Geert Wilders

Submitted by wim3 (Netherlands), Feb 8, 2010 at 15:25

Though we have Freedom of Speech not everything can be said in this hopeless divided country. Our government consists of CDA (catholics and protestants, like the CDU in Germany), the CU (a fanatic christian party) and the PvdA (socialist but hoping to gain voices from the immigrants).

Furthermore we have a non-chosen head of State, the queen, who often interferes in affairs of the State although our Constitution forbids such things. The position of the monarchy is under discussion largely because of the lack of respect all these socalled royals display towards the people of the Netherlands. Geert Wilders is not afraid to say what he is meaning and warns us against the influence of the islam. Innumerable mosques are being built, subsidized by the government. All religious institutes (such as schools, christian as well as islamic) are susidized by the government. It is Wilders who wants to put an end to these irregularities and to the influence of the islam in the Netherlands.

The soft socialist party don't want this, all the more they depend now on the allochtonous electorate. The christian religous parties are afraid that Wilders will get a say in the subsidizing of all religious institutes. The man in the street is in favour of Wilders because he is a victim of the islamisation in our country.
