Geert Wilders Launches Anti-Immigrant Website

Rad­i­cal anti-Muslim Dutch law­maker Geert Wilders has started a new web­site pro­mot­ing his party’s anti-immigrant plat­form. The web­site, called “Hot­line for Report­ing Cen­tral and East­ern Euro­peans,” allows vis­i­tors to sub­mit a com­plaint if they have “lost [their] job to a Pole, Bul­gar­ian, Roman­ian or other Cen­tral or East­ern Euro­pean.” Wilders claims the web­site, which has been widely con­demned by sev­eral EU nations, has already received 40,000 submissions.
In the last sev­eral years, Wilders has been embraced by U.S.-based anti-Muslim big­ots like Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, and has served as the keynote speaker at demon­stra­tions orga­nized by Stop Islamiza­tion of Amer­ica (SIOA), an orga­ni­za­tion led by Geller and Spencer that pro­motes a con­spir­a­to­r­ial anti-Muslim agenda under the guise of fight­ing rad­i­cal Islam. In 2009, Geller claimed to have per­son­ally financed Wilders’s trip to the U.S., dur­ing which he attended the Con­ser­v­a­tive Polit­i­cal Action Con­fer­ence in Wash­ing­ton, DC. Soon after, Geller accom­pa­nied Wilders on a speak­ing tour, vis­it­ing syn­a­gogues and uni­ver­sity cam­puses in sev­eral U.S. cities.

    Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer are not as you crudely put it “anti-Muslim bigots”

    There prob­lem is with Islamists.
