Far Right Anti-Muslim Demagogue Geert Wilders Loses Big in Dutch National Elections
Here’s some good news from the Netherlands, where one of Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer’s far right European anti-Muslim allies, Geert Wilders, has lost big in the Dutch national elections: Dutch Anti-Europe, Anti-Islam Party of Geert Wilders Slammed in National Elections.
AMSTERDAM — While the winner of the Dutch national elections is not yet certain, the biggest loser appears certain to be Geert Wilders, the leader of the anti-Europe, anti-immigration Freedom Party.
Wilders, best known for his harsh anti-Islam rhetoric, gambled that the public sentiment in the Netherlands was sufficiently negative over the euro currency that he based his campaign on bashing the European Union.
According to exit polls, his party lost 11 seats in parliament, falling from 24 to 13.
“I would have rather stood here with good news, but the voter has spoken: we have lost badly,” he told supporters after exit poll results were released.
