Geert Wilders, Breitbart: “Donald Trump, You’re in Good Company if Britain Bans You”

Geert Wilders joins me in this rather exclusive club of heretics persecuted in the UK under the blasphemy laws under Islam. Here he writes about it at Breitbart News:

“Exclusive–Geert Wilders: Delusional Britain Would Rather Ban Donald Trump Rather than Confront Unpleasant Facts”

By Geert Wilders, Breitbart News, January 19, 2016

Deja-vu. It is not an English word, but French. However, the word immediately springs to mind when hearing about yet another Western politician or Islam critic, whom some British politicians want to ban from entering their country. Welcome, Donald Trump, in the company of Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer and myself.

Both Pamela, Robert and myself have been banned from entering the United Kingdom. In my case, it happened on February 12, 2009. Two highly respected members of the British House of Lords, Lady Caroline Cox and Lord Malcolm Pearson, had invited me to show my 2008 documentary Fitna to members of the House in a conference room of the parliament building in Westminster. Fitna is a movie, juxtaposing Koranic versed calling for violence with footage of terrorist attacks and other violent deeds these verses inspired.

Fitna, as well as my view that Islam, rather than a religion, is primarily a totalitarian political ideology aiming for world domination, has resulted in several death threats against my person. I am on the death list of Al-Qaeda, ISIS and the Pakistani Taliban. Since 2004, I have been living under round-the-clock police protection, but I have a mission: Speak the truth about Islam.

However, a Pakistani-born Islamic member of the House of Lords, one Nazir Ahmed, demanded that the then British Labour government ban me from entering the UK. He threatened that he would personally mobilize 10,000 Muslims to prevent me from entering the Upper House. The government complied and had me banned. Though a member of the Dutch parliament, invited by British colleagues, I was locked up in a detention room upon arrival at Heathrow Airport. Three hours later, I was put on the next flight to Amsterdam.

The British authorities said that my “presence in the UK would pose a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society.” My statements as expressed in Fitna and elsewhere were said to “threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK.” Lord Ahmed boasted of his victory in the Pakistani media. He termed the decision “a victory for the Muslim community.”

However, I challenged the ban before the British Asylum and Immigration Tribunal. On October 12, 2009, this tribunal overturned the ban. In March 2010, I returned to London and showed my movie to my colleagues in Westminster. There were no incidents and no disturbances of Britain’s “fundamental interests,” “community harmony,” or “public security.” The bans served but one goal: It was an attempt to shut me up for speaking the truth about Islam.

Yesterday, Pamela Geller wrote on this website that in June 2013, she and Robert Spencer, too, were banned from the UK because their presence was “not conductive to the public good” and a “threat to security of our society.” It sounded eerily familiar, as did the arguments of those who want Donald Trump to be banned from Britain for advocating a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration into the US. Fortunately, they did not succeed.

When the great Ronald Reagan visited the British Parliament in 1982, he told the British parliamentarians that “if history teaches anything, it teaches self-delusion in the face of unpleasant facts is folly.” This is an advice that politicians everywhere should take at heart.

Mr Wilders, a member of the Dutch Parliament, is the leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV) and the author of “Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me,” published by Regnery.

    Shari’a Britain is a piss stain on the desert compared to what it once was. It is submissive to islam, afraid to stand for its citizens and human decency. Eventually the neighbours will have to stage an intervention to cull the disease of multiculturalism from England, dealing with muslims as is required to restore freedom and human dignity. For now, Britain is suffering from “Rotherham” rot which has corrupted its soul.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      People in the US and Canada had best not point the finger of accusation at Europe/Eurabia without considering the same kinda islamic-nazi bullshit is going on in their own countries. Videlicet: “Decent”, “good” muslums cough, choke.

      • Commieobamie

        No one in the United States supports islam, EXCEPT obama lovers, islamos, and libTURDS. ALL the ENEMY!

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Europe is over run with bad muslims, if there are any good ones it is hard to say. However, over here there are a few that aren’t bad. The biggest opposition, a few years ago, in the Canadian province of Ontario, when it tried introducing shari’a family law, were many muslims who do have a clue. Shari’a was not introduces in Ontario.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          Shari’a is part and parcel of islam (spit). For evidence of this I point you to any f’ing islamic cesspool state on the face of this earth today as well as Dearbornistan, Michigan.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Cannot argue that point, muslims run with the herd, individuals occasionally wander off. Very important o encourage them to continue and persuade others to as well.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Which city in Canada will be your 1st Dearbornistan, Michigan?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Toronto and Ottawa are almost there.

  • Keshav

    As an Indian Pamela geller and Geert wilder are my two favourite warriors and locally I support the likes of Praveen togadia and Subramanian swamy who fight Islam in India..

    For western countries Votebank politics must be a foreign concept but we Indians are well aware of it..British politicians banned Geert and Pamela so that they can maintain their votes and muslims vote in a block which is announced in their madrassa and mosques unlike us infidels who vote on the basis of development,Liberal or our conservative value while the only thing that runs through muslim mind is Victory of Islam…The only reason these dhimmis like Obama,Justin treadeau,Merkel are importing muslims disguised as refugees is because they are their future votebanks and knowing the birth rate of muslims they know they will win because muslims vote as a block and Dhimmis are easily influenced in the name of proggresiveness and Tolerance.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      India will be on the front lines of defending and preserving civilization from muslim violent conquest. Thanks for being there.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        The upper bound on the number of Hindus slaughtered by muslums over literally centuries of muslum bloodshed in the Indian sub-continent is 80 million. Tamerlane, the gr8 muslum hero (spit), bragged about how many Hindus he had beheaded or sold into islamic slavery. One of the Boston Marathon bombers was named after Tamerlane.

        • Keshav

          80 million Hindus and 20 million Buddhists were massacred from Afghanistan to Indonesia by Barbaric Islamic invaders of Turkish/Central Asia/Arab origin..The worst muslim leader which muslims still worship everywhere was Aurangzeb killed millions of Hindus alone and did unspeakable evil that Bagdhadi would shy away!

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Nothing can be done about the past, but the present can be influenced, an alliance of all interested parties would definitely be an asset.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Has any f’ing muslum anywhere ever condemned the actions of Tamerlane? Or MuhamMAD?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Who cares, what is to be done about what is happening today?

          • Keshav

            Condemned lol? They worship Timurlane and Aurangzeb they have named cities and missiles after them

      • Keshav

        Been doing that for 800 years now without any International support..800 years of Mass murders of 80 million Hindus and 20 million Buddhists by the hands of Barbaric Islamic Arab/Turkish invaders who massacred,raped,looted and did every kind of evil you can imagine and the ones they forced converted to Islam are the ones we are dealing now who stole 30% of our land plus the looting Colonial British did.

        Now we are left with 30 million Afghani muslims,200 million Paki muslims,160 million Bangaldeshi muslims surrounding us and 14% of our own muslim population that are against us not to mention the liberal/Leftist terrorism against Hindus..Though I am an atheist but I support the rights of Hindus that are under persecution by the hands of Dhimmis and muslims,And Obama isn’t helping to say the least he is providing F-16s to Pakistan a country where Muslims dream of killing Americans where they hid a guy who killed 2,000 Americans..

        I don’t how much India can take more and one day this liberal dreams of tolerant society with muslims in it will explode in their faces…They won’t even realise how fast people will go from Ghandi to Hitler!

        • Mahou Shoujo

          That is a risk liberal socialists are unaware they are taking. They are so stupid in that they think the whole world will embrace liberal socialism, paying attention that islam and many other groups of people have no use for the ignorance that defines socialism.

          • Keshav

            Communism,Socialism,Marxism,Anarchists,Islamism are the tenants of liberal utopia paradise and little do they know that all of these these proggresive roads will lead them to Iraq.

            Dhimmis and muslims the unholy alliance of mental retardation is on suicide mission and they want to drown all of us with them..Time has come to punish dhimmis the same way muslims gets punished only then they will realise the seriousness of it!

        • Lloyd Francis T
        • IzlamIsTyranny

          Long live the Hindu Nationalist Party. F$*k all muslums and their supporters/apologists/sympathizers.

          • Keshav

            Our current leader Prime minister Modi was banned for 10 years into US or UK for his alleged roles in Anti muslim riots which killed 3,000 muslims in 2002..As soon as he became the prime minister both of these countries bowed down to pressure and Invited Modi to their countries the same will happen with Trump!

            UK might ban him now but it would get so embarrassing for UK if Trump wins and I seriously hope be wins..

    • Shane

      I would go one step further and say I think Obama is more than a Dhimmi and instead is a Muslim. Your comments are informative though.

  • Gary More

    the way i see it pam, is if britan bans trump from going there, is that when trump talkes over the presidents office, he should sever all ties with britan. in effect, just tell them to go to hell.

    • Shane

      Remember to differentiate between the British government and the people it is supposed to represent. A huge proportion of Germans wanted Hitler gone back in WW2. Now, it’s happening again with many western governments today. This time, they use political correctness as an excuse.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        I wonder about that. After WW2 it seemed like no one was a Nazi in Germany, but the mass protests in support of Nazism say differently.

        • Julain Farmer

          What “Nazism”? Pegida is not “Nazi”! Grow up child! Do Mothers and babes in Mothecare “uniforms” make one “Nazi”. You should be ashamed of your comment!

    • Julain Farmer

      The British People back Trump not the Lefty “Anchors” that signed this ridiculous petition….

  • Mahou Shoujo

    However, a Pakistani-born Islamic member of the House of Lords, one Nazir Ahmed, demanded that the then British Labour government ban me from entering the UK. He threatened that he would personally mobilize 10,000 Muslims to prevent me from entering the Upper House. The government complied and had me banned.
    Can it be believed? Britain, a one time nation that stood up to the nazi’s and fought them back to Berlin and defeat, now capitulates to one elected muslim politician and his alleged 10,000 goons? England is the coward of europe, which is saying something with the flock of poultry that the e.u leadership are.

  • spacearcadian

    that´s the problem. lawmakers, politicians, countries, business men, industry, mass media, whole nations are submitting to islam and mohammad, the rapist murderer, thief from the middle east, only a few freedom fighters are standing against it, but will that be enough?

  • Eyal

    Intellectual terrorism.

  • Commieobamie

    Yep. You and Trump have differences, BUT we are ALL against islamo alleged domination.

  • tomthumb015

    Just like to clarify to our American cousins and Pamela , we are not all leftie anti free speech Trump haters in the UK. Most of the opposition to Trump’s UK visit is coming from leftie academics, socialist journalists, feminists and leftie politicians in Labour and the LibDems. Most British people believe in free speech and welcome Trump’s visit. So please don’t believe all you hear in the UK and USA MSM. The people in power make the decisions to ban, we the plebs are not consulted.

    • Don Grantham

      I expect most sane free-thinking individuals (i.e. non-liberals) understand that our respective governments have been infiltrated and co-opted by Islamic traitors and their sycophantic lackeys, so we tend to regard any ‘official’ proclamations as if they’re written on toilet paper. Go ahead… wipe your cares away.

    • cliffleaper

      I saw tweets by some bragging they’d signed the petition over 100 times.
      Ridiculous pandering by lefties who in actuality look down their noses at the “immigrants” they pander too. “Useful idiots” – lefties at the top say in private.

      • Lloyd Francis T

        they are an organised lot with their own Sharia agenda, where lying to the other public is the rule of law.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Those of you in Britain would do well to start issuing press releases to non lame stream media outlets, the view of Englanstan is that of a third world islamic republic filled with British dhimmis submitting to every command of their islamic masters.

    • Ben

      We in America are sending you guns and ammunition.

    • chichilouise

      It is largely the same here in the U.S., where our President is doing things that make us cringe with disgust and shame.

  • Shafiq Islam

    The UK will allow Muslim students from a dodgy Sudanese medical school who have joined ISIS to work for its NHS upon their return, but they ban people who have never harmed anyone and never incited violence. So they’re afraid of a visit from a truthful speaker, but happily welcome jidadi doctors to work in their hospitals. Their logic is entirely lost on me.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Socialist liberal and logic are mutually exclusive terms.

  • Don Grantham

    The battle lines are bring drawn. How long will it take, I wonder, before all pretense is dropped and we get down to the inevitable showdown between Islam… and everybody else.

  • TexanForever

    Good for Donald !!! … One is known known by the company one keeps. If the once-great nation that fought Muslims for safe passage of pilgrams to the Holy Land in the Crusades has now embraced the Muslim culture, then Mr. Trump has no business going there. Pull out all of your business assets (money), Mr. Trump, and tell the Brit progressives to go to hell. … Pray for the U.K.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      It is said that Mr. Trump has significant financial interests in the middle east. That would be worth hearing his comments on.

      • TexanForever

        Obviously, one can’t amass nine billion dollars (legally) without having worldwide interests. Also obviously, it behooves one with worldwide financial interests to want to settle things down internationally. Just common sense. Islam has been an anti-peace element since the days of Mohammed when his followers attacked pilgrims on their way to the Holy land, sparking the crusades and creation of the Knights Templars.

        Sharia and the kuran were the reasons Magellan first successfully made it around the world, looking for a safer trade route to India. Incidentally, Magellan’s voyage was sanctioned as a Crusade by the Vatican. (Look it up.) America’s discovery by Columbus was also financed by businessmen looking for a way to avoid contact with the piratical Arabs.

        So Mr.Trump and the rest of the business world have ALWAYS had financial “interests” in the middle east. The Muslim Brotherhood, Arab League, al Q’uaida, ISIS, etc., are still stuck in the 7th century and still causing trouble for everyone else. Mr. Trump has already many times stated (on camera) what he would do regarding the middle east. As president he would settle things down so everyone including himself and the arabic people could benefit and not get slaughtered. Islam is a death cult created by a delusional 7th century lunatic.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Other than Mr. Trump inherited his money, and, as reports allege, has only managed to keep the sum inherited, not add to it, he is not a great investor. About the only thing that can be said is that he has managed not to loose his father’s cash.

          • TexanForever

            Saying that Mr. Trump inherited his money (which he did not because his father insisted that he learn how to make his own fortune) tells me that you know absolutely nothing about his background. His dad purposely stipulated that there would be no inherited fortune. Mr. Trump did, however, borrow money from his father to start his own first building project. He learned from the ground up, starting as a common laborer working for his father.

            I suggest you inform yourself before making silly, obviously uninformed statements. Read “The Art of the Deal.” Then we can pick up the conversation again. Otherwise I’m wasting my time.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Stop wasting your time, I am not particularly interested in “The dumbold”.

  • karl59

    George Orwell must be laughing from his grave at
    the state of 21st century Britain.

  • Ben

    Britain has unfortunately been compromised by it’s Islamic enemy from within. I pray for Englishmen, that they will combine to combat this horror. God Save the Queen.

  • American

    Good company for sure! Michael Savage wrote an excellent book about his ordeal. “Banned in Britain”. But he was put on a list with the absolute worst people imaginable. Something stinks and has for a very long time. Thank you for your love and courage!

  • John Giametti

    Britain is an impotent country well into leftest politics and volunteering for,literally,national suicide and conquest by islam the religion of evil.

  • Stefan Kirschner

    Rabbi Meir Kahane was also banned from entering Britain.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Rabbi Meir Kahane was murdered by a muslum in NYC and Kuntsler (spit) got the muslum ape acquitted. Meir Kahane’s son and daughter in law were similarly gunned down in Israel by muslums.

  • Drew the Infidel

    In the words of Kris Kristofferson, “Everybody has got to have somebody they can look down on”.

  • I can’t imagine how to express my gratitude to and for Geert Wilders. He is truly one of the heavy lifters–and his English is exquisite!

  • I remember well that particular ban on Geert Wilder’s entry into the UK, and being
    both surprised and disappointed that the press did not pick up on the irony that Lord Ahmed could whistle up a mob of 10,000 to protest against Islam being portrayed as a violent, rabble raising ideology.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      What is disgusting is one muslim leading a pile of dirty rags could control the British parliament. Sissy is too mlld to describe those lead so easily.

  • John Waudby

    As a Brit I am disgusted with our spineless politicians for their selling of our country’s soul to these IslamoNazis. Believe me, the decent, civilised population of Britain ( and that includes many peaceful muslims) are getting tired of having to accept the hand wringing, cowardly appeasement to a fascist ideology by our MPs. Latest is that ALL our children will have to take exams earlier to fit in with students on Ramadan, leaving less revising time for all. As a parent, I and many others, are not going to accept the future of this country that the government would have us enslaved to. Together our grandparents stood up to and defeated the Nazis of the 1940’s. We can do it again. We MUST.

    • Fred Sawyer

      Best post of the day. What would Churchill be saying if he were here today?

        He would projectile vomit to see what England has degenerated into.

  • sandra-paquette-

    Because of Britains Stupid Politicians, they deserve what they get. It will be the average British Conservative person that will pay the price. I’m sure Trump will be able to deal with Britain if he should be President. Besides England is just one country they may need some of his advise in the future. For sure Britain will never be the same now. Soon the Muslims will want the Queens Palace.

  • Fred Sawyer

    TRUMP 2016!

  • scocope

    What’s strange (well, not really;-) is the extreme Leftwing butthurt over the Donald’s want to stop Moslem entrance into this country (“Until we figure out what the Hell is going on”) contrasted to the crickets from the same suspects over Britan’s proposed ban on him.

  • Stephen Honig

    If Trump is banned from Britain,he will repay those assholes. Muslims are killing people in England and they do nothing. They also banned Michael Savage who is on the terrorist list.

  • Nancy


  • joker

    I perceived Britain as a beacon in the darkness with regards to free speech.
    Now they had the fun idea banning maybe the next president of the US. Very clever.
    Anyone who talks sense may get a ban but any muzzrat refugee with no clue and likely with some intend to harm Britain is quite welcome. Perhaps I had just a strange dream?
