Wilders comes to the Colonies

Like many aspects of British Common Law - if you really want to freedom of speech and the ability to compete in the marketplace of ideas, then you need to come to the expanded 13 Colonies.

Bravo Zulu to Senator John Kyle (R-AZ). Via RadioNetherlands,
Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders is planning to show his anti-Qu'ran film Fitna to the United States Senate later this week. Mr Wilders was invited to present the film by Jon Kyl, a Republican Senator for Arizona. In an interview with the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Mr Wilders said he did not expect to encounter any problems during his visit.

The politician was recently refused entry to Great Britain. He had been invited to show the film to the House of Lords, but was denied entry to the country when he landed at Heathrow Airport. Mr Wilders is appealing against the British refusal to prevent him from entering the country.
...and now for the background from, ahem, ..... awwww - I won't spoil it for you.

Hat tip OMC.
