GEERT WILDERS FOUND GUILTY OF HATE SPEECH, MAY BECOME DUTCH PRIME MINISTER ANYWAY
Like Donald Trump, Dutch politician Geert Wilders opposes Muslim immigration and has spectacular hair. But last Friday, a triumvirate of sissy-baby Dutch judges found him guilty of “insulting a group.” His evil crime was committed back in 2014 during a meeting in a Hague café when Wilders and his supporters committed the heinous act of agreeing that the Netherlands would be better off with fewer Moroccans.
In declaring Wilders guilty, Judge Hendrik Steenhuis—who has an extraordinarily shiny head—offered yet another of those hackneyed “I believe in free speech…but” disclaimers that all censors seem to employ:
Freedom of speech is one of the foundations of our democratic society…[but] freedom of speech can be limited, for example to protect the rights and freedoms of others, and that is what this case is about.
Wilders called the verdict “madness” and the trial a “charade.” He recorded a video shortly after his conviction:
Dear Friends, I still cannot believe it. But I have just been convicted. Because I asked a question about Moroccans. While the day before yesterday, scores of Moroccan asylum seekers terrorized buses in Emmen and did not even have to pay a fine, a politician who asks a question about fewer Moroccans is sentenced. The Netherlands have become a sick country.
At the time of his conviction, Wilders held a narrow lead in the polls regarding the upcoming race to become the Netherlands’ next prime minister. Some are speculating that rather than being a setback, his conviction for anti-Moroccan “hate speech” may be the thing that puts him over the top.
ALT-RIGHT “PISTACHIO GIRL” BARRED FROM SELLING NUTS AT BASEBALL GAMES
For years, Philadelphia native Emily Youcis has worked both as an animator and an eager nut vendor at Phillies baseball games. In her role as the Phillies’ “Pistachio Girl,” the bubbly, energetic, and presumably fertile Youcis describes herself as a “well-known cult personality figure for the Philadelphia Phillies” who was “like a god” at the team’s home stadium of Citizens Bank Park. In her spare time she does admirable work such as heckling Gawker owner Nick Denton. But now that it’s been publicized that she’s a self-identified white nationalist who believes that “white working-class people” are “the backbone of this country,” she has been officially relieved of her job as the Phillies’ beloved Pistachio Girl. A statement from her former employer Aramark said that Youcis’s views “contradict our values,” two of which are apparently the beliefs that white people suck and aren’t the backbone of this country.
BLACK LAWYER: BLACK JURIES SHOULDN’T CONVICT PEOPLE WHO COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST WHITES
Elie Mystal is a fat and angry-looking black male lawyer who edits a website called Above the Law. In a recent article called “Here’s How Black People Could Use Jury Nullification To Break The Justice System,” Mystal perpetuates the myth that the main violent threat to black Americans are white cops rather than, you know, other black Americans. In order to cure this misperceived injustice, Mystal says he wants to bring “CHAOS IN THE PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE” and encourages juries to “acquit any person charged with a crime against white men and white male institutions”:
Assault? Acquit. Burglary? Acquit. Insider trading? Acquit….Murder? … what the hell do you think is happening to black people out here? What the hell do you think we’re complaining about when your cops shoot us or choke us? Acquit….White people aren’t willing to indict a cop for choking a black man to death in broad daylight. Imagine if black people weren’t willing to indict a citizen for punching a white guy in the mouth?
We can imagine what would happen. If enough white guys get punched in the mouth, they may stop feeling sorry for black people altogether. And without white guilt, black America might have nothing at all.
S.P.L.C. BURIES HATE CRIMES AGAINST CAUCASIAN SCHOOLCHILDREN
In a typically sensationalistic and factually lopsided “hate crime” report called “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools,” the Southern Poverty Law Center—which is hostile to all things Southern and with an estimated war chest of $300 million is laughably far from impoverished—reports that of 10,000 teachers surveyed,
Four in 10 have heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or sexual orientation.
What the report neglects to mention is that about two out of 10 teachers reported that they had “heard derogatory language or slurs about white students.” That’s a minimum of 2,000 incidents of what the SPLC would consider “hate speech” or “hate crimes” but which were entirely neglected by the report because their ideology cannot conceive of white people as victims. Since White Lives Don’t Matter to them, all acts of hostility toward white children were erased from the report.
