Below is an article from today’s De Telegraaf as translated by our Flemish correspondent VH. I have no English-language news item yet on this story:

Bloomberg supports Wilders

Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York yesterday came to the aid of PVV leader Geert Wilders by making a strong stand for freedom of expression.

In the presence of State Secretary Frans Timmermans [PvdA, Socialist, Labour], the Dutch ambassador to the U.S. Renée Jones-Bos and Mayor Cohen of Amsterdam [PvdA, Socialist, Labour], Bloomberg said he was absolutely against any form of restriction on freedom of expression.

“Of course I do not appreciate everything I hear. But when you start restricting that, you step on a slippery slope. Before you know it, you can no longer say what you want,” Bloomberg said at the kickoff of NY400, a year of celebrations in which a central theme is the arrival of the ship “Halve Maen” (Half Moon, of the Dutch East India Company) with the explorer Henry Hudson, who founded a settlement on Manhattan.

Great going Baron, I see who constantly gets the scoops on these issues, and it isn’t the funny little man behind the curtain. KGS

  1. The one thing I respect Americans for is their uncompromising stance for freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment.

    This even applies to Charles Johnson, who has otherwise behaved despicably but even he has no objections concerning freedom of speech for “eurofascists”.
