Editor’s Note: The concerns Geert Wilders expresses in his speech touches similar issues we face in America. Besides the Islamic threat, he shows the systemic problem of the political elites not listening to their people and not honoring their historical past that millions of their countrymen have bled and died for. Ask yourself, have you witnessed any of Mr. Wilders’ warning here in America?
Speech at the Four Seasons, New York
September 25, 2008
Thank you very much for inviting me. Great to be at the Four Seasons. I come from a country that has one season only: a rainy season that starts January 1st and ends December 31st. When we have three sunny days in a row, the government declares a national emergency. So Four Seasons, that’s new to me.
It’s great to be in New York. When I see the skyscrapers and office buildings, I think of what Ayn Rand said: “The sky over New York and the will of man made visible.” Of course. Without the Dutch you would have been nowhere, still figuring out how to buy this island from the Indians. But we are glad we did it for you. And, frankly, you did a far better job than we possibly could have done.
