Geert Wilders Airs Muhammad Cartoons On Dutch TV

Mr. Wilders, who leads the Dutch Party for Freedom, aired the cartoons in programming reserved for political parties. He said he broadcast the drawings to defend freedom of expression, even as Islam holds that any physical depiction of the Prophet is blasphemous.

“The Islam, the terrorists, don’t want us to show these cartoons. But terror and violence may never defeat freedom of speech,”, Mr. Wilders said. “We must precisely do what the terrorists prevent us to do.”

The WSJ is pretty sucky in this vid.

    That video title is wrong, they didn’t show them on TV. Wilders said they deliberately sabotaged the broadcast forcing him to do it on Youtube instead.

    • I will look into it.

      Wasn’t the TV airing kiboshed by the public broadcaster a week ago, with the next opportunity for reprogramming being June 24th? If so is the reporting on the June 24th event?

      Just like in China with Mao.

    OK . I understand that in Islam you can’t blaspheme the Prophet , females are chattels, paedophilia is just fine especially if you are over 50.
    For You to expect ME to follow rules and Laws that go against everything that I have ever been taught—is CRAZY.

    Your big thing is that you are going to have Eternal Life if you follow all the tenants of some pseudo masquerading pervert that has mastered the Art of Plagiarism. Fine by me. Go ahead and pray to him. I am not going to. So you have the Right to KILL me ?

    Violence works ,obviously.
    So– because I disagree—does this make YOU a Victim or does it make —
    ME a justified Victim of your Prophet ?

        Guess, I should have said ‘precepts’ .

        Strange how that is so close to ‘precipice’

          English is a beautiful language.
          It has a shallowness that makes it accessible and a depth that makes it hard to master.
          Lucky me that I’m halfway there.
          I am still teaching my immigrant friends idioms like ‘a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush’.

            Just don’t offer to illustrate ‘bird’, ‘hand’, and ‘bush’ come together.

            Well, they all come together, right now, over me.
