Funny some people accuse Wilders of hypocrisy because he's called for banning the Koran, and he's come up with a movie that should be banned in their opinion. Really these people think we won't see where the hypocrisy is here? First of all, if the Koran was banned and preaching violence on its basis was illegal, then surely Wilders wouldn't have the need to even make this movie. It's not like the OIC has made an offer to the West where it offers to ban the Koran in return for the West banning Wilders movie. It's not that I agree with any kind of limits for freedom of speech, but at least that won't be hypocritical.
Then Western political class, which seems to have moved on to the next degree of abject dhimmitude, judging from progress they've made from the lack of defense of the Danish cartoons to the absolute preemptive groveling on behalf of Fitna, offers very little hope. Yes, we see odd speech from Tony Blair or Sarkozy where they promise to defend our values against the religious thugs. But on an occasion like this when we see Wilders alone and abandoned without even his countrymen to support him, I doubt we can take these promises at face value. Where the only international responses to the bullying of freedom of expression is attempts in the UN to impose legal limits to free speech... while the absolute lack of any attempt to guard the individual from the fury of the lynchmob that's driven by superstition and ignorance is ringing aloud in our ears like a death knell to all our freedoms.
We see us and our civilization called 'evil' and 'decadent' and they say what's unacceptable is we talking about their cowardly methods of using acts of violence and intimidation to silence us into submission! There's only one way left for us to fight this danger - and that's the Wilders way. You can't kill our children and expect us not to offend you, if you claim it's offensive for you to be called a murderer.
I think this crisis should serve as a reminder to us all that free speech exists only as long as, and only to the extend to which, we exercise it.
