factually good comment from Mr. Pipes !

Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: So untrue

Submitted by J. Nijkamp (Netherlands), Feb 8, 2011 at 15:19

Like N. van Olderen I also live in The Netherlands. I have a total different perspective! Most people in The Netherlands oppose to the old political parties who deny the threat of Islam and are also in favour of further integration into the Eurpean Union and the soft approach towards criminals, etc, etc..

Mr. Wilders is our only hope to turn around this catastrophic policy. The leftists are in turmoil because they see their policy endangered. They constantly try to demonize him indeed and most media and inclusive the state funded public TV-channels are characterising him as a simple minded, xenophobic man. The more they do so however, the more support he gets ! There are still a lot of people who dare not say in public because of the political correctness that they sympathise with him. But his electorate is nevertheless still growing.

By the way: mr. Wilders isn't opposed to muslims who integrate, but only to the ones who don't want to ! Because of the huge integration problems he wants to cut back the immigration from middle east (muslim)countries. In March we have (a sort of) regional elections and I strongly believe that mr. Wilders party (PVV) will win this election convincingly !
