Geert Wilders: BBC Hit Piece


Geert Wilders: Europe's Most Dangerous Man?  Was published in four parts by the BBC.  I became aware of it through the good offices of
Bare Naked Islam.  BNI and most of her commentators seem to be convinced that the series of videos will backfire by yielding increased support for Wilders.  I am afraid that the positive outcome depends on viewers either having background information before viewing or seeking it afterward.

    Here are a few of the unsubstantiated code words that fly in the videos:

  • far right
  •  fear
  •  extreme
  •  incitement to hatred
  •  new right ideology
  •  fitna selects passages
  •  viscious Islamophobia

    For those who seek it, the background information can be found here: Geert Wilders On Trial.
