Muslim Democrats Seek to Ban Dutch Politician Geert Wilders From US and AFDI Conference

Muslim Democrats to Silence Free Speech
No criticism of Islam is allowed
(Pamela Geller.com) - Look at the reportage on this free speech putsch from the lefist elites,”Democrats Want to Ban Islamophobic Lawmaker From the U.S.”. Democrats? How about lawmakers with blue pants? It’s Muslims seeking to impose the vicious and oppressive sharia here in the US. Oppose jihad? Oppose sharia? Then you are “Islamophobic”.
It is revealing that these Muslim congressmen would show themselves to be enemies of free speech and free discourse. They cannot refute Wilders and don’t dare debate him. All these little authoritarians can do is try to prevent people from hearing his message. That is the sharia.
Wilders is coming to America to speak at the AFDI Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest. It’s one for the history books. I hope you have your tickets.
This article in Foreign Policy magazine, a citadel of leftist power and influence, sounds like it could have been written by ISIS.
“Democrats Want to Ban Islamophobic Lawmaker From the U.S.,” By John Hudson, Foreign Policy, April 28, 2015
In a letter obtained by Foreign Policy, two Democratic members of Congress are urging President Barack Obama’s administration to ban a Dutch lawmaker from entry into the United States due to his controversial views on Islam.
The Dutch lawmaker, Geert Wilders, is scheduled to speak at a reception on Capitol Hill this month at the invitation of Tea Party firebrand Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas). In recent years, Wilders has become internationally famous for his bombastic broadsides against Islam, which include calls to ban the Quran in the Netherlands and to arrange for the removal of Moroccan immigrants from his country. In 2010 and 2011, Wilders was formally charged in the Netherlands with inciting hatred and discrimination and is currently facing charges for hate speech.
“We respectfully request that the U.S. government deny Mr. Wilders entry due to his participation in inciting anti-Muslim aggression and violence,” wrote Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and André Carson (D-Ind.) in the April 23 letter. “Mr. Wilders’ policy agenda is centered on the principle that Christian culture is superior to other cultures.”
The letter, addressed to Secretary of State John Kerry and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, calls on the officials to deny Wilders entry under the authority of the International Religious Freedom Act, which empowers the State Department to ban the entry of a foreign leader responsible for severe violations of religious freedom.
The somewhat obscure 1998 law has only been used to deny the entry of a foreign official once, when Narendra Modi, the current prime minister of India and former chief minister of Gujarat, was accused of failing to protect Muslims during communal rioting in 2002.
Wilders has called Islam the “ideology of a retarded culture,” and his writings were favorably cited by Anders Breivik, the Norwegian white supremacist responsible for murdering 77 people in the Oslo area in 2012. He was most recently in the news for recording a two-minute video titled “No Way,” in which he tells migrants not to come to the Netherlands.
