Geert Wilders found not-guilty of all charges.
This verdict was inevitable and predictable. As anyone who actually knew anything at all about the Dutch and the legal system of the Netherlands could have foreseen.

Wait, we did foresee such an outcome!

[The principles of Dutch law were put to the test, and proved themselves. And mark this, he's still an irritating blister and a horrendous bigot. That is what free speech is about. What he says is odious. But loathsome speech is still protected. Those who wailed otherwise were either dumb as two bricks, OR under the baleful influence of Pamela buggery Geller.]

We got castigated by all the English-speaking monolingual ignoramuses for saying so.

The Netherlands got all kinds of bad language thrown at it..... and her people..... and her culture..... and her society..... and her history, government structure, laws, customs, perceived habits or intestinal fortitude.....

The castigation, nay, hateful hysterical paranoid balderdash, was voiced by many people (including Pamela buggery Geller) who didn't know what they were talking about, and were the more venomous and foaming because of it.

On behalf of my fellow Dutch-speakers, we do NOT need your apologies.

Kindly be quiet.

Thank you.


PS. Zoals ik al eens eerder vermelde kan het mij in feite gene klap schelen wat de eentalige Engels-spreker over de heer Wilders denkt, dan wel te denken heeft over de onzinnigheden deswelks door Engelstalige rechtse ballen verspreid worden. Indien u dit niet lezen kunt ligt het waarschijnlijk aan u (en het is wel degelijk een faling), maar u kunt u het in ieder geval aan een echte Nederlands-spreker te lees geven voor uitleg.
Voor de rest, bek dicht, stommeling. Ik ben het gezeik van idioten beu.

    Man, you are schizo about the Dutch. One minute you're printing trash from the Dutch equivalent of the New York Post to prove that the Dutch are a bunch of inbred racist scum, now you're defending the Netherlands for providing free speech for someone you think is a racist inbred scum. (I'm paraphrasing you very loosely, you might not agree that the guy is inbred or quite meets the requirement for scum.)

    On the other hand, there ARE limits to free speech. Obviously the court in the Netherlands didn't think he exceeded them.

    Schizo is too simplistic. Dutch society is infinitely more complex than you may think, and consequently any view of Dutch society will have to be infinitely more varied. Necessarily both the positive and the negative need to be encompassed.

    The Netherlands can be described as a dysfunctional society in what is a remarkably functional framework.
    The principle of justice and free-speech triumphed in this case. Which is a major victory for the system - it shows that both the underlying framework, and the openness/oversight built into the legal structure are sound. That's the functionality.
    The losers are the various political-action groups who pressed the issue. Theirs is the dysfunctional aspect.

    Naturally, I applaud the successes of Dutch society, while from a position of knowledge and personal involvement loathing, despising, and criticizing much that is thoroughly rotten.
    I am, in fact, entitled to be both eloquent in praise and thoroughly toxic in rebuke.
    You have to remember that I am still an insider. Certainly not a privileged one, and quite likely not a reliable one from a Dutch point of view, but nevertheless far more of an insider than anyone who has not lived there and does not speak the language can ever be.
    And I am still involved.

    "Wien Neerlands bloed door aderen vloeit, van vreemde smetten vrij" - but that's primarily because the Nederlandsche smetten leave so little opportunity voor the vreemde smetten to get half a word in edgeways.

    There's a long and honourable tradition of severely criticizing the Dutch. Frequently in Dutch.
    The Dutch, as a society, have always needed a good kick in the collective backside.

    And by the way, Geert Wilders' ideas and attitudes may be inbred (not surprising, seeing as he's from Limburg), but he himself represents the least inbred sector of Dutch society, given that he's actually an Indo. And married to a foreigner.

    If you consider me schizo, then you should think him self-hating.

    One other crucial point:
    I can criticize the Dutch and the Netherlands.

    That ignorant hysteric Pamela buggery Geller can’t.
    Glenn buggery Beck can’t.
    The entire friggin’ Tea Party can’t.
    Fox can’t.

    Add Pamela buggery Geller, Glenn buggery Beck, the Tea friggen’ Party, and Fox buggery Network together, and you have so much accumulated evil and stupidity that they are responsible for ninety percent of the bad karma and foul odours in the country.
    Might as well be labeled an EPA superfund site and isolated in an abandoned salt mine. Big thick concrete cap on top.

    The Telegraaf is not significantly worse than most other newspapers over there.

    The Volkskrant pretends greater gravitas, but the editorial policy is more rigidly ideological. During the Vietnam war they were at the head of the baying pack making all Americans out for subhumans. The NRC Handelsblad claims a more bureaucratic, commercial, and ‘intellectual’ clientele – but their staff is a times remarkably ignorant. That means they’re better than many American local papers, but not much.
    Regional newspapers are variants on the Algemeen Dagblad, which means appealing to the majority population, much like the Telegraaf, albeit with more local content.
    The best papers are probably Trouw and Het Parool. But even they are infected with Dutch superiorism and distaste for Jews, Americans, Turks, Moroccans, and Surinamers. Not too horrendously so, unlike the Volkskrant, which gleefully boasted several years ago that Turks, Moroccans, and Americans were obviously the most odious of peoples, because a poll in the Netherlands proved them so – most Dutch agreed that Turks, Moroccans, and Americans were utterly loathsome.
    Which, by the way, is a sentiment that is abundantly reflected, in the crudest terms, on so many Dutch websites.

    That Wilders likes Yanks and Yids is, of course, a fluke. He likes us (whichever ‘us’ that I currently identify with) purely because verything we are drives the Muslims to distraction.
    That, to him, is probably our most admirable quality.

    Bluntly put, the best newspaper in the Netherlands is the New York Times.

    Jeez, all you have to do is replace the word "Dutch" with "American," and nothing changes about the truth of the sentence.

    And that's right, I keep forgetting that Wilders is not the typical inbred white trash, he only hates Muslims, not all foreigners.
