About a thousand Dutch protesters gathered in central Amsterdam to voice their uneducated opinions against the Dutch politician’s film, Fitna. Notice the guy holding the sign with an Arab scarf wrapped around his neck.
Most likely he’s totally oblivious to the fact that every Muslim -who believes every word of the Quran to be true. deems him to be a substandard human being. But there he stands calling a western democrat a fascist while stumping for tolerance of a religion that would cast him into a second class status if ever given the opportunity.
Anti-racism protesters clad in winter clothing against the freezing cold and drizzling rain held placards that said “Enough is enough” and “Stop the witch-hunt against Muslims.”
Pop and hip-hop groups entertained the crowd in between speeches by social groups.
We can no longer remain silent. There is a climate of hate and fear in the Netherlands,” said spokesman Rene Danen from anti-racism organization Nederland Bekent Kleur (the Netherlands recognizes color differences), which had organized the protest.
There should be restrictions on what Wilders can say, said Rieke, a 61-year-old Amsterdam arts teacher who declined to give her last name.
“I think it is embarrassing what Wilders says, for example about tearing up the Koran. It is a very bad example to people to let him say whatever he wants,” she said.
