He's an Islamophobic moron, but I can see no purpose in prosecuting him.
Indeed, the decision by the Dutch authorities to bring Geert Wilders to trial for his offensive, racist, garbage only allows him to play the role of victim.
"I am on trial, but on trial with me is the freedom of expression of many Dutch citizens," he told the Amsterdam district court. "I can assure you, I will continue proclaiming it."The funniest thing about this is that he immediately declined his right to proclaim it and told the court that he would not be answering any questions during his trial.
This led one of the judges to note that Wilders often makes bold statements and then refuses to get into discussions where his views might be challenged.
"It appears you're doing so again."This, hysterically, led to Wilders asking that the judge be dismissed as he had clearly, as far as Wilders was concerned, shown bias. The trial has been suspended whilst his objection is considered.
"I thought I had a right to a fair trial, including the right to remain silent," said Wilders. "It is scandalous that the judge passes comment on that. A fair trial is not possible with judges like that."As far as I am concerned, Wilders should be allowed to say what he likes, as long as he is not calling for violent acts. People are intelligent enough to be able to see his hate speak for what it is, without dragging him through the courts.
But it is hysterical that this purveyor of hatred towards all things Muslim should find the judges comments, "scandalous". The guy has no sense of irony.
