As we noted last week on Pith, Dutch politician Geert Wilders was in town last week, fanning the flames of Islamophobia at Maury Davis' Cornerstone Church. After reading the full text of Wilders' speech on Jihad Watch, I couldn't help but think of the above video from the Onion News Network, which came to us courtesy of Pith reader Angry White Patriot.
Highlights (lowlights?) from Wilders' speech:
My friends, I am sorry. I am here today with an unpleasant message. I am here with a warning. I am here with a battle cry: “Wake up, Christians of Tennessee. Islam is at your gate.” Do not make the mistake which Europe made. Do not allow islam to gain a foothold here.
Islam is dangerous. Islam wants to establish a state on earth, ruled by Islamic sharia law. Islam aims for the submission, whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence, of all non-Muslims, including Christians.
And it gets better:
My friends, fortunately, not all politicians are irresponsible. Here, in Tennessee, brave politicians want to pass legislation which gives the state the power to declare organizations as terrorist groups and allowing material supporters of terrorism to be prosecuted. I applaud them for that. They are true heroes.
Yesterday and today, I met some of those brave legislators. They told me that Tennessee in particular is a target of Islam. Help them win their battle. They need your support.
And this little morsel must have been music to the ears of Lou Ann Zelenik:
Third, we must stop the Islamization of our countries. More Islam means less freedom. There is enough Islam in the West already. We must stop immigration from non-Western countries, which are mostly Islamic countries. We must expel criminal immigrants. We must forbid the construction of new hate palaces called mosques.
