Hirsi Ali says Wilders is good for the Netherlands...

Now, if only she would run for Prime Minister....
Geert Wilders is no racist and also no fascist. He is a boon for the Netherlands, Ayaan Hirsi Ali believes.

Hirsi Ali, who works at the American Enterprise Institute, says she is often asked in the US whether Wilders is a racist or a fascist. In an opinion piece in NRC Handelsblad, she writes that he is neither, though his solutions are "unfeasible in practice."

"He is good for the Netherlands, because people who are angry about the systematically wrong approach by the established parties to questions such as immigration and Islam can funnel their anger by voting for him, instead of rebelling or, worse still, entering into a violent confrontation with radical Islamic groupings."

Wilders' popularity is the result of the "persistent and vicious campaign of the elite to demonise any one who questions Islam as a worrying source of departure from Dutch values by many Islamic minorities." It would be better for the three classic power parties, Labour (PvdA), Christian democrats (CDA) and conservatives (VVD), to demand of Muslims that they give up "values based on the Islamic or tribal code of their country of origin," according to Hirsi Ali.

Unfortunately, she is wrong here. Wilders musings of banning the koran and immigration are fascist.

He doesn't want to ban the koran. All he is saying is that if Mein Jampf is illegal, then the Koran should be too. Free speech is best of all the options.

If I was to leap onto a stump and advocate the murder of homosexuals, jews and any others that I considered to be non-believers, I'd get shut down, RIGHT NOW!!!

The Death Cult seems to advocate this with impunity and anyone that opposes it is fascist?

it only makes sense to choose immigrants that have some chance of assimilating into civilized society. Muslims insist they will not try to get along with their neighbours and are willing to kill their neighbours if they feel 'offended' by their lifestyles. It does not make sense to invite people like that to live in the civilized world, they should be encouraged to leave.
