Dutch politician Geert Wilders to speech at 9/11.

One of my countries most popular (in media) politicians is getting ready to make a speech about 'freedom of speech' at ground zero on 9/11. This politician is most famous for calling the islam an outdated, stupid religion. Does Geert Wilders operate within the boundaries of freedom of speech when he at the same time criticizes freedom of religion? Voice your opinion in the comments. My personal opinion would be: Yes, Geert Wilders operates within the boundaries of freedom of speech, because in my opinion there are no boundaries in freedom of speech. That's why it's called.. FREEDOM!

Ps. This is not about wether islam is a stupid religion or not, it's about wether there are certain boundaries aplying to 'freedom of speech'

5 opmerkingen:

  1. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for the speech come the 11th.

  2. He certainly has the right to say it, but that doesn't mean it's the correct or appropriate thing to do.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he got slapped with a hate crime fine or some similar penalty. He can say it but he'll experience a lot of backlash.

  3. Of course he can say that the islam is a stupid religion, just his point of view, if some gets angry because of this, it´s not his problem.
