The Lights Are Going Out All Over Europe

Ghert Wilders speech at beginning of his trial in Nov 2011
By Ghert Wilders, Gates of Vienna

The lights are going out all over Europe. All over the continent where our culture flourished and where man created freedom, prosperity and civilization. The foundation of the West is under attack everywhere.

All over Europe the elites are acting as the protectors of an ideology that has been bent on destroying us for fourteen centuries. An ideology that has sprung from the desert and that can produce only deserts because it does not give people freedom. The Islamic Mozart, the Islamic Gerard Reve [a Dutch author], the Islamic Bill Gates; they do not exist because without freedom there is no creativity. The ideology of Islam is especially noted for killing and oppression and can only produce societies that are backward and impoverished. Surprisingly, the elites do not want to hear any criticism of this ideology.

My trial is not an isolated incident. Only fools believe it is. All over Europe multicultural elites are waging total war against their populations. Their goal is to continue the strategy of mass immigration, which will ultimately result in an Islamic Europe — a Europe without freedom: Eurabia.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Anyone who thinks or speaks individually is at risk. Freedom-loving citizens who criticize Islam, or even merely suggest that there is a relationship between Islam and crime or honour killing, must suffer, and are threatened or criminalized. Those who speak the truth are in danger.

The lights are going out allover Europe. Everywhere the Orwellian thought police are at work, on the lookout for thought crimes everywhere, casting the populace back within the confines where it is allowed to think.

This trial is not about me. It is about something much greater. Freedom of speech is not the property of those who happen to belong to the elites of a country. It is an inalienable right, the birthright of our people. For centuries battles have been fought for it, and now it is being sacrificed to please a totalitarian ideology.

Future generations will look back at this trial and wonder who was right. Who defended freedom and who wanted to get rid of it.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Our freedom is being restricted everywhere, so I repeat what I said here last year:

It is not only the privilege, but also the duty of free people — and hence also my duty as a member of the Dutch Parliament — to speak out against any ideology that threatens freedom. Hence it is a right and a duty to speak the truth about the evil ideology that is called Islam. I hope that freedom of speech will emerge triumphant from this trial. I hope not only that I shall be acquitted, but especially that freedom of speech will continue to exist in the Netherlands and in Europe.

  1. @ keelie:The population that the Europeans are concentrating their hatred on is, of course, the Jews whose task has always been to bring the light of civilization to the nations of the world!! It is no coincidence that the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel feeling should coincide with the loss of other freedoms of civilization. Obviously, Europeans refuse to learn from history, either Biblical or secular, what happens when governments turn against its Jews!! It’s too bad that so many Jews haven’t learned their own lessons from history either about what happens to Jewish collaborators!!!

  2. Those who produce and implement these so-called laws, from the police officers to the prosecutors to the judges, are not men as we used to know them. They are compliant little animals who do as they are told to do and say what they are told to say.
    I do not know of any incident where a judge or a prosecutor has thrown up his hands and said openly in court that what is being done to the defendent in question is part of a cancerous blight on humanity.

  3. Wilders is making an extermely important point about the need to affirm the right of freedom speech. A part of that freedom is the right to go against political correctness; free speech does not belong only to those who parrot the party line. In speaking out against Islam, he is making the glaringly obvious point that it is a repressive, aggressive, supremicist political ideology pretending to be a religion.

    It seems that commentators to this article are unaware that the Dutch legal system brought the charges against Wilders, against the opposition of prosecutors.

    Feel good remarks regarding Ciavarella are irrelevant. He functioned because a citizenry was too wedded to the notion that judges always do right.

    Wakey,wakey, some judges are crooks and bigots and bye-the-bye, there is a big world outside the United States where judicial processes operate in different, but equally effective ways.

  4. Don’t know if you are right Bill, but if not, this is one of the greatest examples of
    Political Correctness in recent years. How an “honest prosecutor” who nailed this
    hero of the Netherlands can look at his face in the mirror while shaving is beyond
    imagination. Wilders needs to become Prime Minister and straighten that country out.

  5. All over Europe multicultural elites are waging total war against their populations.

    It would be interesting to start naming the members of these “multicultural elites”. Good to know who the real enemies are.
