Geert Wilders on Trial

Reader comment on item: Europe's Anti-Islamic Parties on the Move

Submitted by Kepha Hor (United States), Apr 18, 2011 at 12:58

A new national anthem for the Netherlands, to be sung to the tune of Het Wilhelmus:

The triers of Geert Wilders--Are they of true Dutch Blood?

Their Fatherland's in peril, so they moo and chew the cud.

Old wim of Orange goes rolling in his crypt beneath the ground,

His feckless heirs go crawling, lest they be "bigots" found.

The land of Young Spinoza fears free inquiry

Into religious rradition if it too militant be

When the modern Duke of Alva comes waving crescent moons

Good Dutchmen run for cover like cowardly poltroons.

It's fine to mock at Jesus and to Christians be a foe,

But say something of Islam--just as Theo van Gogh.

"Don't think that we are bigots! Don't think so, please, please, please!

To show how nice we are, we'll scratch Bouyeri's fleas!"
