Wilders tells police he stands by anti-Moroccan comments

Netherland’s Geert Wilders, president of PVV (Party for Freedom) delivers a speech during the France’s far-right National Front congress in Lyon November 29, 2014.

(Reuters) – Far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders said on Monday he had told police officers questioning him on discrimination charges that he stood by anti-Moroccan comments he made in March.

“I do not retract anything I have said,” Wilders, whose Party for Freedom (PVV) is leading opinion polls, said in a statement on Monday.

“In my fight for freedom and against the Islamization of the Netherlands, I will never let anyone silence me. No matter the cost, no matter by whom, whatever the consequences may be,” he said.

Thousands of complaints were sent to police in March and April after Wilders spoke to a crowd chanting for “fewer, fewer, fewer” Moroccans in the Netherlands, during campaigning for local elections.

Wilders told the crowd: “We’ll take care of that.” In a later TV interview, he referred to “Moroccan scum”…

    he will be charged. The politicians can’t face up to their perfidy, with its side dish treason

    In other news, the Greek stock market fell 13 per cent today on fears of a general election, which Syriza, the hard-left party, are almost certain to win.

    Their first act will be to do what Athens should have done in the first place and default on Greece’s theft bonds, forcing Frankfurt to choose between replacing them with debt-free money or letting Greece’s banks fail, starting another financial crisis.

    London bankers have the gall to describe a scenario where they might actually lose money on theft bonds “worse than communism,” as if Greeks were supposed to find Romanian-style austerity preferable.

    • What’s a “theft bond”?

      • Minicapt

        When you borrow money with no intention to pay back the original value of the loan, you have created a ‘theft bond’. It’s part of “shariah banking”, and appears to be popular with the ‘Erse’.

        Cheers

        • What else can it mean? Granted Angela Merkel is of course the second coming of Hitler – we all agree that’s reasonable – why, if Greece has been borrowing money that it has no intention of paying back, (which is the only sense I can make of this), does that make them the good guys?

          I suppose it’s something to do with a “banksters” conspiracy against the loyal working class Protestants of Greece.

            What are you talking about Black? The fact is the EU was more about taking money from European nations and to give to that ECB.

            The EU was a failure from the start.

            The only way to save individual European nations is for them to return to being individual nation-states.

            Syriza coming in next time to nationalize the banks, remove the corruption and return to the Drachma is the best way to save Greece. PASOK and the Greek conservatives have only resulted in worsening conditions for Greece. Don’t forget they are in a coalition together, meaning the centre-right and the centre-left. It seems to me that Greece has no other choice than the far-left or the far-right.

          • I’m not defending the EU.

            The Greek people CAN’T pay it back, Mamba. Not if they had till the world’s end.

            Greek elites, kleptocrats left over from the Ottoman Empire, had Athens mortgage their country several times over so they could give sinecures to clients and avoid paying taxes, which in Muslim nations are assessed only on the poor. European banks lent to Athens freely, betting the Germans would bleed the money out of the proles to make sure the banksters didn’t lose a cent, and (so far) they’ve been right. On the contrary, speculators have made fortunes on the “bailout.”

            Meanwhile, ordinary Greek businessmen unable to get credit to keep their firms afloat are driven to loansharks, and from there to suicide. Seeing a doctor without paying a bribe is impossible. Any young Greek who can flee German debt-peonage has left or is thinking about it. Muslim settlers, who use Greece’s porous borders as an easy way into the EU, are proving only too happy to replace them.

            The Germans have two choices, Mamba. They can forgive the debt of the Greek people, restore to them their right to issue their own money, and insist their own banksters take losses on their bad investments. Or they can let Greece become a communist or Islamic state. The choice is theirs.

          • If Greece was corrupt enough to have an elite that took on an unsupportable debt, then why must the Germans bail them out?

          • Pete_Brewster

            If someone had a drug-addicted relative who stole his credit card and used it to buy goods to pawn to pay off his dealer, nobody would blame the person who had his credit card stolen. The addict would be blamed. Normally the bank would make allowances for this if there were clear evidence of fraud.

            So why not in this case? If they wanted their money back they should have gone after Greek kleptocrats and their Swiss bank accounts, not Greek taxpayers. Lord knows they’re not above freezing the bank accounts of rich Russians who are too friendly with Putin.

            As it is, if it can’t be paid, it won’t be. What do you suggest instead? Foreclose on Greece, fling out Greece’s Christians and sell the place to Erdoğan for a euro? Throw in Cyprus and its gas fields as a sweetener and I don’t doubt he’d be thrilled, but what would anyone else get out of it?

          • “If it can’t be paid, it won’t be.” Quite. What’s it got to do with Erdogan?

          • Pete_Brewster

            Erdoğan isn’t the point. The point is that the only thing that would come close to making Greece’s creditors whole is complete expropriation of Greece’s capital stock and its sale to whomever will buy it for pity or political advantage. Greeks won’t stand for that. Would you? They’ll fight back or flee.

        A bond allegedly issued by a sovereign, to which that sovereign never consented and the proceeds of which did not go to him. The Greek people never saw more than a fraction of the money borrowed in their name.

      The best thing about Greece is that it’s the canary in the coalmine of Europe.
