GEERT WILDERS ADDRESSES EUROPE NATIONS AND FREEDOM CONFERENCE IN MILANO ITALY…….

Truly one of the great statesmen of our times.

Statement Geert Wilders

Press Conference Europe of Nations and Freedom
Milano, 29 January, 2016

I am extremely happy to be in Milan. Because this is the city which in 2005 awarded the late Oriana Fallaci, a true Italian hero, Milan’s highest award, the Ambrogino d’Oro.

She deserved it. She was one of Italy’s greatest and most courageous women and journalists. Whenever I come to Italy, I do so in honor of her: Oriana Fallaci, whose bravery in warning against the dangers of Islamization I greatly admire. Her book The Force of Reason – La Forza Della Ragione – was one the best books I have ever read. It was published in 2004 and inspired me to start my own political party that same year, a party that today – twelve years later – is by far is the biggest party in all the polls in The Netherlands with almost 30 percent of the votes.

Thank you Italy, thank you Oriana for the inspiration. I am very proud to have been awarded the Oriana Fallaci prize in Rome in 2009.

Today our civilization is still in danger, as a matter of fact worse than ever before. We are facing an existential threat.

You can see it everywhere, in all Western European countries. Our borders have been opened to Islamic mass immigration. And the consequences are terrible. The costs are gigantic, the attacks horrible and the threat of terrorism has never been higher.

So we need to act.

That is why we are here today in Milan. With a message of strength and unity. Together with my good friends from Italy, France, Austria, Belgium, the U.K. and other countries we have forged an alliance. An alliance with a historic mission. Our mission is to save and defend our nations and our Western civilization, built on the legacy of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem. The survival of our freedom, identity and values are at stake.

My colleagues and I, we ring the bells of the revolution. A democratic and peaceful revolution to regain our national sovereignty. To stop the invasion. To protect our own people, our women, our culture. We have to become the masters again of our own borders, our own budgets, our own destiny. Our mission is to do what our governments fail to do. We say: Basta! Finita la commedia!

And there is good news. Ever more people – millions of people – join us. A patriot spring is on its way. The European elites are running our nations into the ground. We will not allow that. We will not accept that. The people will not accept that. The people will resist that.

The people no longer want politicians who are selling out their nation, ignoring the wishes of its citizens, and acting like politically correct appeasers and cowards. What we need today is real leadership. Brave politicians, unlike the ones that currently misrepresent the people in so many fake parliaments, where they do exactly the opposite of what the majority of the people want. We say: enough is enough.

Most of us here are leading in the polls in our respective countries.

We are politically successful because we stand for the following five principles.

The principles of the new patriotism.

One, we want to close our borders for mass immigration from Islamic countries and the asylum tsunami.

If I would become Prime Minister of the Netherlands next year, I will close the Dutch borders at once.

Two, we must protect ourselves against the terrorist threat.

We do not want jihadis in our countries. And we must restore the safety of our citizens, especially our women. No more rape, no more sexual jihad. On New Year’s Eve in Cologne alone, over 1,000 women were assaulted, groped, raped. So far, 30 suspects have been caught. All of them North-Africans, and half of those asylum seekers.

This is unacceptable. Closing our borders is a major step towards more safety too. Three, we do not want billions of taxpayers’ money to be spent on Brussels, bailouts and asylum seekers. We want that money to be spent on our own people. In our own country.

Four, we choose national sovereignty instead of the EU. The Capitol of The Netherlands is Amsterdam not Brussels. We will regain national sovereignty and get rid of the unelected European bureaucrats.

And five, last but not least, we want to stop the Islamization of our free societies. I say: no more. We chose freedom and will not compromise anymore.

It is time to halt the elite’s march of folly and save our countries. That is what people expect of us, that is why people support us, that is what needs to be done, and that is what we will do. That is our duty as true political leaders.

We will make our countries safe, sovereign and great again. And we will succeed.

Because the people and the truth are on our side.

Let me remind you of something Oriana Fallaci once said. I quote: “It is a lie to say that the truth stays in the middle. No sir: Sometimes truth stays on one side only.”

End of quote.

The truth, ladies and gentlemen, indeed, is on one side only. It is on our side. So, get
used to it: We are the future.

GEERT WILDERS: THE PATRIOT SPRING………

Unlike the fake ”Arab spring”, what Geert Wilders is championing is an actual ”Spring”, the kind that flows from Western classical liberalism based upon the enlightenment.

Exclusive — Geert Wilders: The Patriot Spring

by GEERT WILDERS 26 Jan 2016

“A revolution,” Wikipedia says, “is a fundamental change in political power or organizational structures that take place in a relatively short period of time when the population rises up in revolt against the current authorities.”

In Europe and America, revolutions are brewing. They are peaceful and democratic, but they are going to send the elites home that are running our nations into the ground.

I have just reread Ronald Reagan’s 1982 Westminster speech, in which he predicted that freedom and democracy would soon send the communist dictatorships in Eastern Europe and Russia to “the ash heap of history.”

Reagan spoke of “Poland’s struggle to be Poland.” And today, three decades later, history is about to repeat itself in the United States and in several West European countries. Of course, I am not comparing our current political elite with the Communist dictatorships with their prison cells for dissidents, but the fight of a nation to be itself, remain itself and defend its identity, that fight is also being waged today.

We are witnessing America’s struggle to be America, and the struggle of several European nations, among them the Netherlands, Britain, France, Germany and many others to preserve their identity and liberty, to remain the Netherlands, Britain, France, Germany. Everywhere, patriots are on the march. We are living the Patriot Spring.

Everywhere, democratic revolutions are underway. They will drive the elites from power. People are sick and tired of seeing their nations lose. They are fed up with how the political and media elites are weakening their country. They want to regain their national sovereignty from supranational organizations such as the European Union. They want to get rid of the fake parliaments that sell out the national interests because they no longer stand for what the majority of the people want. They want brave and patriot politicians in the legislatures. They also want more direct democracy, so that the people can correct those who misrepresent them.

For decades, Westerners have been told by their elites that multiculturalism was a virtue and patriotism a thing of the past. The values of the middle classes with their common sense, rooted in the traditions and morals passed down by their parents, were undermined and ridiculed by the mindless political correctness of the educational system, the government apparatus, and the mainstream media. The economic prosperity of the people was squandered by high taxes, foolish monetary experiments, and bailouts for foreign countries. “Our nation first” became “our nation last.”

The elites applaud politicians such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel. President Obama praised her for her leadership. Time dubbed her “Chancellor of the Free World,” for one single reason. Because she has foolishly sold out the safety and wellbeing of her own people to hordes of largely male fortune seekers who rather than fight for their own country, have come to live on German taxpayers’ money.

Frau Merkel is not the only Western politician conducting policies that harm the interests of her own people. In fact, most of our Western leaders, including my own Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, are politically correct adherents of detrimental open door policies. Before the year in which Angela Merkel became “Person of the Year” was over, Germany experienced its own sexual 9/11. On New Year’s Eve in Cologne alone, over 1,000 women were assaulted, groped, raped. So far, 30 suspects have been caught. All of them North-Africans, and half of those asylum seekers. Also in other West European countries we see a rise of “sexual” assaults.

Unlike the ruling elites in politics, media, and academia, ordinary people recognize an existential threat when they see one. Years ago already, they have begun to realize that the democratic institutions in their national capitals no longer represent the will of the people. They realize that time is running out for the West, and that the moment has come for a democratic revolution to halt the folly of the elites, otherwise our superior Western civilization will perish, our nation will change beyond recognition, and our children’s future will be endangered. It is clear what millions of Europeans and Americans want. They want to protect national sovereignty, stop the tsunami of asylum seekers, close the borders to mass immigration, stop spending their taxes on foreigners, they want leaders who truly represent them and defend the national interest. They do not want their countries to be Islamized.

And that is why we should add a new chapter to the long list of historical examples of people standing up for democracy and freedom. Let us add the Patriot Spring of 2016 to the list. And let us all be part of it.
