Rent-a-Mob Is a Stain on Australan Society !
Geert Wilders had his first speech to Melbourne supporters last night. Those supporters had to go through a barrage of vile abuse protected by a line of police. What Australians got was simply another attempt to howl down Wilders, not listen or even counter with arguments. These unruly protesters (see photo) come from a handful of different protest groups mainly cast in the image of their leftist elitist academic professors. Tight security surrounded Mr Wilders' hour-long speech to members of the conservative local group of the Q-Society of Australia.
There's Solidarity, which is acually a Trotskyite outfit with a minuscule membership and an authoritarian plan for Australia (http:/www.solidarity.net.au/about us/) far more threatening to our democracy and our freedoms than anything Wilders could ever dream of. It's manifesto, for instance, declares: ''Capitalism stifles democracy and smothers creative freedom...We stand for socialism, a society that would be based on democratically elected workers councils which control and plan the economy.....Parliament, the army, the police and the courts are institutions of the capitalist state....which cannnot be taken over and used by the working class.'' Dumb Deadshits!
Then there was the Students for Palestine filling the ranks of the protesters. This is the same ratbag group that helped organise the disgraceful and, in my view, racist and intimidatory protests against Jewish chocolate shops to help enforce a boycott of things Israeli. Wilders, in contrast, is supportive of Israel and a strong critic of anti-Semitism. These protesters, in my opinion, do not represent the good but the bad in our country. Yet the lame-stream media never labeled this bunch of vermin as being far-Left, yet they went on and on calling Wilders a far-Right Dutch politician.
In fact, Geert Wilders is not far-Right. He'll own up to being culturally conservative, but his policy platforms aren't standard far-Right fare. He is a strong supporter of small government and free speech (reports that he wants the Koran banned are false). He has kept his distance from true far-Right parties such as France's National Front. We all remember that he appied for a visa to visit and come to Australia, but the application was stalled last February. The official reason for the many months of delay was that he is on a database of people of ''security concern''and the Department of Immigration had to do more through security checks. It smelled of a gutless government.
As if to underscore the Politically Correct calculations delaying Wilders' visa application, the governing Labour Party swiftly approved a visa for Taji Mustafa, the British head of the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group of scumbags notorious for religious intolerance, disdain for Western values and sympathy for jihad. Stupidly, Prime Minister Julia Gillard said she would not be revoking Mustafa's visa and that Hizb ut-Tahrir was not on the government's list of proscribed terrorist groups. When appeasers rule, they instinctively appease and if appeasement doesn't work, then they appease harder. But you see Geert Wilders' visit would upset Muslims who might riot, while Mustafa's visit might also get Muslims to riot, but on the other hand it could convince them how much Australia loves them (sic)!
The Way I See It....the mitigated irony of it is that protest organiser Feiyi Zhang said Wilders' speech could incite violence against Muslims. Doesn't she mean violence from Muslims....and from her radical Left? She and her companions used physical force and intimidation to stop others from simply listening to whom they like...is shameful and betrays the totalitarian nature of the far-Left. But what is more bizarre is that Leftists claiming to defend Muslims from vilification are, by using this force, only making Islam seem even more threatening.
The Australian Islamic Council wisely stayed out of promoting any animosity to the speaking tour. They are fully aware, I'm sure, that any encouragement given to protesters and their actions would definitely crystallise Wilders' message in the minds of all tolerant Australians. Wilders speaks for those of us who are sick to death of PC thugs telling us what we can and can't say, especially now that we've had our eyes opened to the gross intolerance and obvious hypocrisy of the Muslim intent together with its nasty ideology that stifles freedom of speech.
