Oops … the live video went black as soon as I posted this.

There we go. It’s back.

And it’s gone again. This Dutch TV station was apparently only interested in Geert Wilders’ speech.

Some quotes from Wilders:
“We are here in the spirit of America’s founding fathers. We are here in the spirit of freedom. We are here in the spirit of Abraham Lincoln, the President who freed the slaves. President Lincoln said: ‘Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves.’”
[Frequently interrupted by the crowd chanting “NO MOSQUE HERE! NO MOSQUE HERE!”]
“Not a single church is allowed in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, so why should we do that?”
“If the mosque will be built here, such people would feel triumphant and we should never, ever, ever give them that feeling.”
“We cannot tolerate a mosque on Ground Zero.” [Crowd chanting again, “NO MOSQUE HERE.”]
“In honor of these victims, I believe the words of Ronald Reagan resonate…”
“In the name of freedom, NO MOSQUE HERE!”
As Orwell spins in his grave.
