I think Mr. Pechtold is very disappointed Mr. Wil-
ders has not been murdered, yet. So in calling him a racist, Mr.Pechtold hopes somebody is crazy enough to do the dirty work for him.

I think Mr. Geert Wilders is a very logical person as his actions have demonstrated and a true patriot who will not sell his country to a terrorist organization he justly despises.
The Dutch people should elect him their next leader.

Mr Geert Wilders is an outstanding Politician.He can see clearly the dangers that islam has for a free and democratic country . He is a dedicated to preserve the Christian and Democratic culture and freedom of the Netherlands and sacrifices even his own personal life for this as he is 24/7 under police prtection .If people are not aware of the dangers of this Islam religion and culture they should educate themselves through what the internet tells us and what history shows us re Islam and their cruelty

Wilders certainly is not a racist, he only points the danger of Islam to Europe to those clueless politically correct politicians like Pechtold. In Almere he was voted by non muslim blacks from Surinam including by muslims from Iran. It is not only whites who have problem with this backward religion, nearly all the blacks in the Netherlands hate it even more. The blacks in the Netherlands are more religious Christians than the whites. In a while there will be more and more Geert Wilers' in the world who would dare to stand up for principles.

Mr Wilders is absolutely not racist, and obviously so. Those calling him one are the haters, and obviously so. He is a brave, kind and logical man, and the Netherlands and the free world owe him probably their very lives, for speaking out for what others refuse to face, or even worse, attack him for facing and speaking out about this truth, shocking truth, ugly truth, not his beliefs, but the haters beliefs, who get their beliefs from their Quran/Koran, who emulate their human example (lying, deceiving, murdering, rapist and torturer of humanity and also, child rapist, see about what Aisha his child 'wife' says in her own words about being forced to endure his rapes, full intercourse rape, at 8 3/4 years old, after a traumatic lenghty period of years during which he forced her to endure his sexually overpowering her little body, so traumatised that this poor child's hair fell out). Read about it, don't lie for their prophet, face it, he was bad, he was evil, and he is their example, please don't insult him though, by outlining his deeds to those who still DON'T KNOW these facts. Muslims need to either change their allegiance from a child rapist and lying murderer and abuser of women, and men,-- or cravenly carry on the facade of 'normalcy' and lie to us about him and their religion, while feeling superior for deceiving us so skillfully,- while never speaking out against 'those extremists'(this is redundant, Islam itslef is extremely brutally cruel to not only women, their own, others, but children, male and female, and people in general, in particular, those who are non-Muslim,'the infidels'. Us. We - according to the 'peaceful religion' of Islam,(wink wink Muslim to Muslims, garnering honour for Takiya - deception to the stupid infidel)- they are told, deserve death. I was told this also, by one who I was not prejudiced toward, "All Americans and Jews should be killed!' and was threatened with death 'when' he found me if and when I was ever foolish enough to try to escape from him. His name was Hussein, he was Muslim, and I thought he was surely just a psychopathic individual, however, I found out he is typical, and he like so many take pride in hiding their hatred behind 'charm' and clever, skillful deception - lies are not frowned on in their culture, they are enjoined and encouraged and even expected of one another! We simply do not understand their mindset, and that is sad to say, to their advantage in this war. We are not at war with Islam as we have been told by George Bush and now Obama. What they did not tell us (and we don't have the time to find out this fact for ourselves) is: Islam is at war with us. We are not racist to wake up and realize what our avowed enemies are saying is the most virulent hatred we have heard since Hitler. We are not bigots to say we are worried about our safety when Muslims call for our (screaming)beheadings and slitting throats and crushing our skulls. These are their words. Imams and Koran, Mohammed the pervert sadist prophet of a God who Muslims intend to force upon all of us. We are in our own country and we fear the Muslim wrath and our own people are castigated and persecuted for telling the facts they hear taken from the Koran, the Mosques, the Imams and the Muslim people, but - what is wrong with this picture?- the Muslims' calls for our murders and the rapes and the beheadings of our people (non-Muslims, infidels of all colours and race) are ignored, blacked out, and media does not touch them. Where has the free press gone? Where have brave free speakers fled? Is Geert Wilders the last example of stout hearted brave manhood speaking out for our rights? He is good and right and selfless. Long live Geert Wilders, and may the Omniscient Creator of him and the Universe protect him and the rest of us, and may we all be brave enough to be more like this great man.

racist - discriminatory especially on the basis of race or religion

how is he not a racist?

bigot - a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own

damn straight he's a biggot

he singles out muslims as being the cause of all evil in this world. gimme a break.

he is a kind, logical and brave man??? do you even try to think for yourself, or do you let others do that for you.

kind: he singles out muslims as being the cause of all evil in this world.

logical: he singles out muslims as being the cause of all evil in this world.

brave: that he may be, for fear of his own life he speaks what he believes to be the truth, but that doesn't make him right now does it. Yes he has some good ideas, however none of them are related to immigration issues.

the vast majority of crimes in the netherlands are indeed commited by immigrated citizens (most of whom are born in the netherlands. that however does not mean that muslims are to blame for this. just because they are muslims (and bare in mind that most offenders are not even practising muslims) that does not mean all muslims are to blame.

Religion doens't commit crimes, people do!

Thank you Tim, that was a very honest statement. Mr. Wilders is more popular among blacks and Iranians than any politician in The Netherlands. That is a fact. Only idiots like Pechtold would deny that.

According to you, Mr. Mohamed, Mr. Geert Wilders have no right to oppose the excesses of this hateful and evil religion. That is the problem with you muslims, you can't stand any critic against your evil religion. Look around what is happening in the muslim world, they don't even allow one Church to be built in their countries while building thousands of mosques in Christian Europe and in the US thanks to people like Pechtold. They even wanted to build a mosque at Ground Zero where their fellow religious zealots destroyed in 911. I am a black Christian girl, like most in the Netherlands, from the former colony and can say that Mr. Wilders to be the most honest politician ever existed in The Netherlands or in the whole of Europe for some time.

Wilders is not a racist. He is simply intolerant of intolerance. He is standing up to the sizeable portion of Muslim immigrants who do not wish to mix with the Dutch society. If you invited someone into your home but they made no effort to respect your ways, and indeed even tried to impose their own customs (Sharia Law) on your family... wouldn't you get annoyed? Of course you would.
People of a Christian background do not understand that Islam is fundamentally different than modern Christianity... it still has a strong element of wishing to dominate other religions, spread, and institute Sharia Law.
Liberal apologists are wrong to call Wilders a racist. Yes, Dutch culture is traditionally very tolerant, but one thing it should never be tolerant of is intolerance!!! Wilders is taking the honest approach by putting his feelings out there in the public forum. Ask the Muslim Imams to honestly explain their religion and they will talk about the 5 pillars of islam: prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, etc. They will never mention submission of women, Sharia Law, honour killings, etc. Until Western Imams come out publicly, "en masse", against these negative elements we should assume they are in favour of these things. Make no mistake... these things are all contrary to Dutch and Western values of freedom and democracy.
Wilders understands this.
