Geert Wilders, Incumbent…..His Films……Dutch Legislator…..

Geert Wilders

It was in February of 2009 that Geert Wilders was denied admission to Great Britian by the British Government. The denial of access was caused by an uprising of British Muslims protesting the admission of Geert Wilders and his anti-Muslim efforts to explain the dangers of Muslim Invasions of democratic nations. It should have been a shock to all free men that an individual, a former Dutch legislator, an outspoken spokesman for those who oppose Muslim immigration in their nation. It wasn’t and the British government responsible for this outrageous decision should be called to task.

 However, the brutal power of Muslim populations in democratic nations is a fact of life and the American People should be on notice that the Muslim invasion is occurring here in the United States. It should be exercising its muscle, its power and its influence in just a few short years. Currently they’re laying low. Oh! You’ll get your rare news stories where the women refuse to remove their hijab which virtially covers them from head to toe. Well enough said, read what Geert Wilders has to say. He is far more experienced on the Muslim threat than we here in the United States. …..

Geert Wilders assumed office in the election in the Netherlands in 2008. He was born in Venlo, the Netherlands in 1963, he was member of the VVD from 1998 to 2006 and then transfered policital party PVV in 2006. He attended the Open University in the Netherlands and has trained to become a professional politician. You can find him on his website which is

Geert Wilders’ films dramatically demonstrate his point as to how an invasion of Muslims can challange the governments and the peoples of democratic nations. His film “Finta” will challenge the viewer and possibly be a turn off. However, they do report Muslim action groups at work in various venues in the Middle East. You can view them by clicking on

 Geert Wilders (born 6 September 1963) is a Dutch politician. He has been a member of the Dutch Parliament since 1998, first for the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy and from 2006 on the Party for Freedom, a party which he founded and of which he is the political leader.

Early Life and Career

Wilders was born in Venlo, Netherlands, in the province of Limburg, where he was raised a Roman Catholic. He received his secondary education at the Mavo and Havo of the “R.K. St. Thomas College” in Venlo. He followed a health insurance course at the “Stichting Opleiding Sociale Verzekeringen” in Amsterdam and gained several Law certificates at the Dutch Open University. His father was a manager for the printing and copying manufacturing company Océ.

After working in the health insurance industry, Wilders became a parliamentary assistant to Frits Bolkestein in 1990, in that time keeping up a heavy travel schedule. In 1997, Wilders was elected for the VVD to the municipal council of Utrecht, the fourth largest city of the Netherlands. A year later, he was elected to the national parliament.

Political Career

In September 2004, Wilders left the liberal People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD in Dutch), having been a member since 1989, to form his own political party, Groep Wilders, later renamed Partij voor de Vrijheid (PVV or Party for Freedom). He left the liberal party over a dispute within the VVD in late August 2004 about, among other things, his refusal to endorse the party’s position that EU-accession negotiations must be started with Turkey. Geert Wilders has been in the Tweede Kamer since 1998.

His party program states that Wilders’ party is committed to “freedom of the individual”; Wilders believes that the Netherlands has been held hostage by elitist (mostly social democrat and left-wing liberal) politicians for decades. He claims to want to give it “back to the people”, and in this respect he has been labeled a populist by the establishment.

His political views (and so the ones of the PVV as well) often overlap those of the murdered Rotterdam politician Pim Fortuyn and his List Pim Fortuyn. There are strong resemblances, certainly on socio-economic issues, to libertarianism. Wilders wants to lower taxes, cut most welfare programs, raise highway speed limits and minimize state regulations by making it mandatory to scrap two legal rules for every new one to be instated. He also wants to reintroduce the mandatory army service. On the crime issue, he has supported a U.S.-style three strikes law with mandatory life sentences after three separate acts of violent crime.

In polls released following the assassination of Theo van Gogh, it was estimated that Wilders’ party could win as many as 29 (out of 150) seats in the Dutch parliament. With the uproar over the killing of Van Gogh subsiding, this number declined to a low of one in October 2005. In February 2006, after the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy, it rose again to three seats.

A few weeks after the assassination, Geert Wilders stayed away from regular meetings in parliament for several weeks. Even though a member’s presence is not mandatory, it is uncommon not to show up for weeks on end. Wilders claims that he did this out of concern for his personal security. Having been assigned a new seating position in the parliamentary meeting hall (one further away from the public observation area), he has once again started to attend meetings.

 Wilders is under constant security protection because of frequent threats to his life. On 10 November 2004, two suspected terrorists were captured after an hour-long siege of a building in The Hague. They had three grenades and have been accused of planning to murder Geert Wilders as well as then fellow MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The men in question were presumed members of what the Dutch intelligence agency, the AIVD, has termed the Hofstadgroep. In September 2007, a Dutch woman was sentenced a 1-year prison term for sending out more than 100 threatening emails to Wilders.

In recent interviews, Geert Wilders more than once indicated that the Dutch constitution and European Convention on Human Rights should be amended or temporarily suspended to protect citizens from Islamic extremism. He is in favor of stripping criminals with dual nationality of their Dutch citizenship and deporting them to their country of origin.

In response to the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy Wilders posted the cartoons on his website (1 February 2006), in support of the Danish cartoonists and freedom of speech. Following his publication, Wilders stated he had received more than 40 death threats in just two days.

In November 2006, PVV won, in its first parliamentary election, 9 of the 150 open seats.

 The Dutch newspaper Telegraaf reported in May 2007 that Geert Wilders had been shadowed by the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service for years, when he was foreign affairs spokesman for the VVD. During that time, Wilders had been regularly meeting officials at the Israeli Embassy in The Hague. Sources in the security service said that the agency was surveilling conversations between Wilders and Israeli personnel. The security services denied the allegations, insisting it had never shadowed or eavesdropped on Wilders.

On 15 December 2007, Wilders was declared politician of the year by NOS-radio, a mainstream Dutch radio station. The parliamentary press praised his ability to dominate political discussion and to attract the debate and to get into publicity with his well-timed one-liners. The editors eventually gave the title to Wilders because he was the only one who scored high both among the press as well as the general public.In response to Wilders’ outspoken statements, a countermovement was organized in December 2007 with the stated aim to “stop evil”.

Political Views

He is for free market, for unrestricted freedom of speech, for a small government and against multicultural relativism and politically correct dogmas. Geert Wilders favors the restriction of immigration to the Netherlands, particularly from non-Western countries.

As defender of free speech and critic of Islam, he believes it to be in conflict with Dutch law.


In the past twenty five years Geert Wilders has visited Israel about forty times, where he says he has met Ariel Sharon and Ehud Olmert personally.

Originally, Wilders wanted to move to the Jewish state because he thought one could, as opposed to the Netherlands, ‘work for your own money’.Wilders worked in bread factories and a moshav. With the money he earned, he traveled through Israel and some near countries. He started to love Israel, or as he states it in his own words in 2003: “The past years I have visited many interesting countries, from Tunisia to Turkey and from Cyprus to Iran, but nowhere I have that special feeling of solidarity that I always get if I set foot on the Israeli Ben Gurion Airport.”

Wilders has, in the eight years he has served in the Dutch Parliament, consistently supported Israel and attacked countries he perceives as enemies of Israel.

Furthermore, Wilders has made some proposals in the Dutch Parliament inspired by Israel. For example, in 2005 Wilders proposed implementing Israel’s administrative detention in the Netherlands, a practice heavily criticized by human rights group Amnesty International. Also, at the time Wilders was member of the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, he had an employee who directly came from the Israeli Embassy.


Referring to the increased population of Muslims in the Netherlands, Wilders has said: “Take a walk down the street and see where this is going. You no longer feel like you are living in your own country. There is a battle going on and we have to defend ourselves. Before you know it there will be more mosques than churches!”

Later, Wilders suggested that Muslims should “tear out half of the Koran if they wished to stay in the Netherlands” because it contained ‘terrible things’ and that Muhammad would “in these days be hunted down as a terrorist”.

On 8 August 2007, Wilders opined in a letter to the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant that the Koran, which he called a “fascist book”, should be outlawed in the Netherlands, like Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. He stated that: “The book incites hatred and killing and therefore has no place in our legal order.”

On 15 August 2007, a representative of the Prosecutors’ Office in Amsterdam declared that “dozens of reports” against Wilders had been filed, and that they were all being considered. Due to this position on Islam, the Dutch-Morrocan rapper Appa, when interviewed about Wilders for a newspaper, said “if someone were to put a bullet in his head, I wouldn’t mind”. Wilders charged him with threatening with death. Appa denied this, saying that he wouldn’t care (if it happened), accusing Wilders of harboring the same attitude towards Muslims.

Jordan has summoned Wilders to court, as his film, “Fitna” was deemed to incite hatred.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Wilders stated that Muslims “have to give up this stupid, fascist book” (the Quran) in order to be able to assimilate. The interviewer notes that this idea “seems unlikely to win many converts.”


Fitna is a 2008 short film by Geert Wilders that explores Qur’anic motivations for terrorism, Islamic universalism, and Islam in the Netherlands. The film’s title comes from the Arabic word fitna which is used to describe “disagreement and division among people”, or a “test of faith in times of trial”. It is the subject of an international controversy and debate on the limits of free speech.
