Dutch Anti-Islam MP Wilders Rallies German PEGIDA Protesters

Daily Star, April 13, 2015

Dresden, Germany: Dutch far-right populist lawmaker Geert Wilders rallied thousands of PEGIDA followers in eastern GermanyMonday to counter society’s “Islamisation” but failed to draw the record crowds organisers had hoped for.

The so-called “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident”, founded half a year ago in the city of Dresden, had aimed to top their previous record from January of 25,000 people joining a rally.

Instead, only about 10,000 turned up, according to media estimates, many waving Germany’s red-black-gold national flag and yelling their standard chant of “we are the people”.

“Dresden is showing how it’s done,” said the flamboyant Dutch politician with the trademark peroxide blond hair, who has called Islam a fascist religion and compared the Koran to Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”.

“We have had enough of the Islamisation of society,” he said, speaking in German to loud cheers from the crowd.

“Immigrants have to adopt our values, not the other way around.”

He also insisted that “we don’t hate Muslims, but they have to integrate” and demanded the reintroduction of border controls within the European Union.

More than 2,000 anti-fascist counter-demonstrators had rallied in the afternoon, away from the PEGIDA protest site which was blocked off by police.

PEGIDA marches, which have also targeted “criminal asylum seekers”, mainstream political parties and the media–began with several hundred supporters last October and peaked in January, just after the deadly Islamist attacks in Paris.

But the weekly Monday rallies have since waned to several thousands following internal splits after an outcry sparked by its founder Lutz Bachmann posting pictures on Facebook of himself looking like Adolf Hitler.

Wilders, 51, who heads the Party for Freedom, was again accused of inciting racial hatred after pledging last year to ensure there will be “fewer Moroccans” in the Netherlands.

The German integration commissioner, Aydan Ozoguz, had warned citizens against attending the PEGIDA event, saying that by inviting Wilders the group had shown its true extremist colours.

“Anyone who still marches behind their flag is joining an openly far-right movement,” Ozoguz told the Welt daily.

Saxony state Interior Minister Markus Ulbig said: “This is not a good day for Saxony. With Geert Wilders they have invited a person who has hate inside him, who is divisive”.

Dresden police declined to provide a crowd estimate for the PEGIDA event.

    I wonder how many Germans actually believe the diversity lie and how many are afraid of being labeled a “racist” for going to such a rally?

    • Chip Carver

      It’s probably similar to the US where many Whites are scared to voice their opinions. At the moment that is. As things get worse, this is going to change.

      • Jason Lewis

        Even Tim Wise says whites will change. In his “Open Letter to White People” he sees a nationalist movement happening but it won’t matter according to him, the numbers would have flipped by that time.

        • Kenner

          Look at the damage blacks can do when they’re only 13% of the population. It’s not always about the numbers.

            In Rwanda, the Tutsis managed, in spite of being a small minority, to beat the incompetent Hutu majority in a civil war. Their man Paul Kagame now rules the country.

            And this was AFTER the Tutsis had been genocided!

            The main thing is to paralyze the Cultural Marxist empire that hovers above us like vulture. Once the imperial state is out of the picture, anything is possible.

      • TrueNorthFree

        We must all get very comfortable with being called hateful names such as “racist’.
        Here is a good reply to anyone who calls us names when we state our support for the “hated” white race:

        I am as racist as s*** and I am totally OK with that, dude.

        • Jason Lewis

          If I’m called that I say “ok” then continue the conversation. Flips people out.

          • TrueNorthFree

            LOL- I love it!!

      • newscomments70

        You see it in comments sections though. Millions are enraged. There is always a subhuman white liberal who screams about racist whites…they are lambasted now…most hate them. The occasional literate black thug will scoff at race realists as “keyboard warriors”. At this time, that is a true statement. It must be changed though. (legally, of course)

    • Jason Lewis

      You can be jailed in most of Europe for anti-pc views. Here in the U.S. they just take away your livelyhood.

      • TrueNorthFree

        We must ALL begin to work to change that.

    • TrueNorthFree

      We must all start educating our people (our white brothers and sisters) out of decades of “diversity’ brainwashing.

      For me, the big “lightbulb moment” was the raping of thousands of white schoolgirls in Roitherham, England by Pakistani Muslim men. And if that was not bad enough, the fact that Rotherham officials did nothing about the rapes because they were afraid of being called “racist” was what finally woke me up.

      Even today most official media accounts of the Rotherham rapes refer to the men as “Asian” and the offenses as “grooming” when it fact it was Pakistani Muslim men who rapes thousands of white English girls on English soil.

      God help us if Muslims are permitted to keep immigrating to our Western countries because they are majorly out-breeding whites.

      • LHathaway

        lol, I have news for you. Arab men are ‘raping’ western white women all across the Western world. I suspect Arab men are the most likely to actually marry you first.

        • TrueNorthFree

          In Muslim countries it is not unusual for women to be forced to marry their rapists but this was not the case with the white Rotherham English schoolgirls who were raped by Muslims.

  • anony

    Wilders should surely watch his back.

    • Jason Lewis

      He goes everywhere with guards.

      • anony

        So did JFK.

    “The German integration commissioner, Aydan Ozoguz, had warned citizens against attending the PEGIDA event, saying that by inviting Wilders the group had shown its true extremist colors.”

    “They” do the same thing in all of our formerly White countries, that is to call patriotism “extremism”. The insane part is that “they” are, so far, getting away with it.

    • IstvanIN

      Aydan Ozoguz is a Turk, so of course she doesn’t want a Germany for Germans.

      • Engelsman

        And Angela Merkel was in charge of the Communist Agitprop in East Germany and has no children i.e. no stake in the future Germany.. She doesn’t want a Germany for Germans either. After all, she did not receive the Coudenhove-Kallergi award for European Integration a.k.a. White Genocide, by looking after the interests of the German people, but by following the orders of Satan.

      • propagandaoftruth

        “Anyone who still marches behind their flag is joining an openly far-right movement,” Ozoguz told the Welt daily.

        Well maybe Ozoguz should emigrate to Ozoguzia.

  • Hilis Hatki

    Events like this rally scare the antiwhites. “Justice seekers” are so …Tolerance from thee but not from me.

  • TrueNorthFree

    ““Immigrants have to adopt our values, not the other way around.”

    Geez, even saying something quite reasonable like this is considered “racist” by many brainwashed whites.

  • Light from the East

    Wilders has a deep understanding of Islam. He is the pioneer of anti-Islam movement and foresaw what happens now in Europe a decade age. He says Islam itself is an extreme ideology, which cannot be stopped unless totally being eradicated. If we sit aside doing nothing, Islam will spread like disease until all humans become Muslims.

  • newscomments70

    “Immigrants have to adopt our values, not the other way around.”…no sir, immigrants have to leave.

  • IKUredux

    Let’s be honest. Not many Whites have the courage to stand up for being White and being against White genocide. In Germany, it is especially difficult. And yet, here in the so called United States, we can hold rallies. But, we do not. Why? What are we waiting for? When they rename the Washington Monument? Or, when it is taken down? When the White House is repainted, more to the liking of the Hispanic majority? Or, when the Muslim hordes start to destroy all our artworks because they are not Koran compliant?

    When is Enough is Enough?

  • corvinus

    PEGIDA is back… that in itself is good news. The “lower-than-expected” turnout was simply because they had to completely reorganize after losing their leadership.

  • RaySist27

    Mr. Wilders is true hero and patriot. It takes tremendous courage to say the things he says as he will probably require 24 hour a day security for the rest of his life. I wish there were more politicians like him.

  • Paleoconn

    I like Wilders, but why the tired refrain of ‘integrating’ these people and having them adopt our ways? Why not oppose their entry to our countries altogether.

    Also, Aydan Ozoguz? Is that the new ‘Fritz Muller’ or ‘Hans Schroeder’?

  • newscomments70

    gotta make those feds happy.

    It’s a sign at every National Park in the U.S. so you know the Gov’t knows about this…

    “Please do not feed the wildlife. They become reliant on handouts and abandon their natural nutrition sources (work), which may cause health issues. In addition, they become accustomed to this activity and will use the park as their restroom.”
