#1 "It is irrelevant whether Wilder's witnesses might prove Wilders' observations to be correct", the 'Openbaar Ministerie' stated, "what's relevant is that his observations are illegal".

#2 The truth is illegal.....

As I recall all Geert did was quote the Koran.

#3 Kafkaesque is right. The Trial was a great story. This is one scary true story.

#6 Was the Koran available in German while Hitler was in prison? Did he crib from it?

#7 I wonder if prosecutor Vellerman and the members of the Openbaar Ministerie have considered that they might someday face trial for this themselves.

#8 Hopefully Wilders will play this trial like an instrument, and win big time in the court of public opinion, and later, in the polls. He would be wise to pack the "ordinary court" with his followers, if for no other reason than to prevent possible assassins from getting through.

And there is no reason to show a kangaroo court, or its officers, any respect. By this I mean that they, personally, should be put on trial at the same time, so that the public sees their faces, knows their names, and "who they are working for."

#11 Truth as a defense is an Anglo-American tradition. Something the tranzies will make sure disappears when they can make it happen.
