Today’s Opinion: Congrats Wilders’ style

POSTED: 05/3/11 11:53 AM

We received the following comment on our web site ( on an opinion piece that appeared last week Tuesday wherein Michiel Blok compared Geert Wilders with Adolf Hitler. That did not go down to well apparently:

“WOW you really miss the point on a grand scale. Wilders is pointing a critical finger at a movement that is poised to destroy all Jews and subjugate most of the population to instate its own brand of supremacism. Yet you compare him to Hitler for doing so? How absurd (and dare I say, ass backward). I doubt that you really know what Wilders has been saying. He is fighting against oppression. Yet he is intolerant? He is intolerant of intolerance. He calls Islam an ideology because to call it a religion is a grand mistake. Islam is a totalitarian system of government that does not hide its intentions of taking over any other system that might be in place where it inhabits. It is intent on ruling the world and putting non believers in subjugation yet the man who points this out and tells the truth about the most intolerant ideology known to man is the one who is vilified? That is exactly how evil triumphs over good.
Wilders is not in favor of destroying books or afraid of foreign influence. Only ignorant people who have never bothered to read his statements insist on this. He is against banning any books but when Mein Kampf was banned for being a manual of hatred, he questioned why the Qu?ran would not be banned for the same reason. It was a valid point. As for destroying all Muslims you are just irresponsibly speculating. Wilders has tried to make it clear to even the thickest of skulls that his issues are not with Muslims and that most Muslims are good, law abiding people. His problem is with Islam. I don’t recall Hitler making such distinction.
Shame on you for this spineless article which only serves to further obfuscate the facts and create a villain of the man who is trying to protect the very freedoms that allow you to write your opinions.

Hmm, we think that the author of this reaction read something that was not in the article. Michiel Blok compared characteristics of Hitler with those of four politicians (Wilders, Kok, Bush and Ghandi), and he found out of 36 characteristics, 30 similarities between Hitler and Wilders.

A fine example of wilders’ perceived tolerance surfaced this weekend when he thought it tasteful to congratulate the labor Party (PvdA) with the following message on Twitter: “Congratulations Job (Cohen –ed.) with the 65th anniversary of the PvdArabs. You gave the Netherlands mass-immigration and imported many losers and criminals.”

Cohen had a bit more style when he answered: “Geert, thank you for your congratulations. Nice that you show how we congratulate each other in our country, in spite of political differences. #naturalization course?”
