Geert Wilders in Australia

"...when the leader of the third biggest party in one of the oldest democratic legislatures on earth has to live under constant threat of murder and be forced to live in "safe houses" for almost a decade, something is badly wrong in "the most tolerant country in Europe..." writes Mark Steyn in his foreword to "Marked for Death" the book by Geert Wilders I am just reading. He is on his way and I look forward to hear him speak in Sydney.

Here is an interview he just did with our national TV net work, the ABC, who, once they grow up want to be like the BBC, and who certainly do not share the full admiration I have for that courageous and articulate man, Geert Wilders.

Incidentally, the Australian senator, Cory Bernardi, initially a fresh, outspoken voice among the herd-like group think that has taken over the narrative  here in Australia like in so many Western societies, has been bashed into submission by the bullies that set the tone in Media, Academia and on the political field.  More's the pity. Watch Mr. Wilders's elegantly philosophical  acceptance of this  "well-it's-politics" factor at the end of the interview.

"The man ...is not the grunting thug of media demonology but a well-read, well-traveled, elegant and perceptive analyst who quotes such "extreme" "fringe" figures as Churchill and Jefferson" writes Mark Steyn about Geert Wilders  whom our media, politicians and assorted people of  ill will and/or fake deafness call anything from "extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeme right winger" to the "evil incarnate".

More to come about Geert Wilders and the elements that try everything to prevent him from speaking, even here in Australia.
