Dutch PVV leader Geert Wilders has a statement about the loss of freedom of speech in the Netherlands, which he compares to Turkey's recent crackdown on free speech.
"I just heard penal sentence demanded by the public prosecutor; a penalty of five thousand euros. Speaking about one of the biggest problems of our country, the problem with Moroccans, is now punishable according to the elite, and hence we are slowly but surely losing our freedom of speech. Even asking a question is no longer allowed. Even though millions of people agree."
"And Moroccans have suddenly become a race, so if you say something about Moroccans, you are now a racist in the Netherlands. Nobody understands that. It is utter madness. Only meant to shut you and me up. While in other countries the people sent the elite home, here they want to silence an opposition leader. The Netherlands is running the risk of becoming a dictatorship. It looks like Turkey. The differences between the Netherlands and Turkey are getting smaller."
"The opposition is silenced. I was elected by nearly a million people. That number will even be higher on march 15th next year. And it is my duty to talk about the problems even when the political correct elite led by Prime Minister Rutte refers not to mention them. Because looking away and remaining silent is not an option. I have to say it like it is."
