Great Britain Defends Free Speech and Admits Geert Wilders!
Things have been looking bloody awful in the U.K. over the past few years. It's as if Great Britain is rolling over and playing dead as Muslims attempt to convert the country to an Islamic Republic. But there's just been an amazing sign of life. Several months ago, leaders refused to allow Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders to so much as enter the country (after all, we can't have anyone speaking freely against Islam here in the West).
That decision has been overturned, however, and Wilders returned to Britain to proclaim that Islam is violent, intolerant, and a threat to free speech. Predictably, Muslims responded to Wilders's charges by calling for his death and demanding the implementation of Sharia. Doesn't anybody bother to tell Muslims that they're actually helping Wilders when they respond with threats? Wilders's skyrocketing popularity can only be a sign that people are catching on. The conversation over the past few years seems to have gone something like this:
WILDERS: Islam is violent and intolerant.
PUBLIC: Nonsense. Islam is peaceful and loving, just like Christianity. Our Muslim friends told us so.
MUSLIMS: Death to Wilders! Down with the West!
WILDERS: You see, I told you that Islam is violent and intolerant.
PUBLIC: Umm, we're not quite sure we agree with you yet.
MUSLIMS: Off with his head! Anyone who insults Muhammad must die according to Islam! Freedom go to hell!
WILDERS: When are people going to listen to me when I say that Islam is violent and intolerant.
PUBLIC: Hmmm. You may have a point.
MUSLIMS: How dare he say that Islam is violent! Let him face us so we can murder him in the streets like Theo Van Gogh!

MUSLIMS RESPOND (Hey! Didn't anyone tell these guys that Islam is a religion of peace, and that the death penalty is only supposed to be carried out in Muslim countries?)
