Hero Brinkman: Defector From Geert Wilders anti-Islam Party Says PVV is Bankrolled by US Supporters

Geert Wilders and David Horowitz Freedom Center

Geert Wilders and David Horowitz Freedom Center

Tell us something we didn’t already know (via. Islamophobia-Watch):

Wilders’ anti-Islam party is bankrolled by US supporters, says former MP

American lobbyists make large donations to a foundation set up by the anti-immigration PVV, Hero Brinkman, the MP who left the party on Tuesday, told a television talk show on Tuesday evening.

Brinkman said he could not rule out the money being used to pay for Geert Wilders’ defence on racial hatred charges but declined to comment further on what the money had been spent on. Nor would he comment on the size of the donations.

The PVV is thought to generate significant funding from Israeli and far-right supporters in the US.

Because the PVV has no members, it does not receive government subsidies to run the campaigning side of its operations and relies instead on donations.

Dutch News, 21 March 2012

Brinkman’s allegation about the PVV’s finances confirms what had already been revealed in the Dutch press. Last year Dutch Newsreported that the two main US sources for the PVV’s funding were David Horowitz and Daniel Pipes.

    Yes Christian Rightists Like Rick Sanatorium who

    “I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute.” Santorum continued, “The First Amendment means the free exercise of religion and that means bringing people and their faith into the public square.”

    I privately am against abortion, homosexual marriage, stem cell research, cloning. But who am I to decide that it’s not right for somebody else?’ It sounds good, but it is the corruption of freedom of conscience.”

    Santorum advocated for a more “family values”-oriented society centered on monogamous, heterosexual relationships, marriage, and child-raising. While prior to his running for congress Santorum considered himself pro-choice on abortion, he has since changed his position to pro-life. He opposes same-sex marriage, saying the American public and their elected officials should decide on these “incredibly important moral issues”, rather than the Supreme Court, which consists of “nine unelected, unaccountable judges.”

    Yes I am sure the Christian right will love you anti-burqas weed smokeing pro gay Libtards . Face it your being used by the Israel firster anti muslim hate crowd as enemy of our enemy is our friend who after they stick muslims in camps will have you join us.

    Speaking of all things anti war, a new youtube channel was started recently, dedicated to stopping the US from starting a war with Iran. He’s started a project where he wants other people to make videos urging the US not to go to war with Iran and debunking the claims made by people calling for war.

    Here’s a link to the guy’s first video.

    No War With Iran: Intro (Please Mirror)

    He makes a very compelling case in my opinion.

    @Eric Dondero:

    You ask, “So, what you all are saying is the U.S. libertarians don’t have the right to fund libertarian political parties in Europe?”

    Yet, today on your site, you post: “What’s Microsoft’s multi-billionaire and Seattle-ite Bill Gates doing intervening in politics in the Netherlands? As Radio Netherlands explains, ‘Gates is so worried about the new round of cuts in the Dutch development cooperation budget that he telephoned Dutch public broadcaster NOS to express his concern.’” http://www.libertarianrepublican.net/2012/03/bill-gates-versus-geert-wilders.html

    So, is it your position that Americans can fund foreign political parties, but not call in to foreign radio stations? Please clarify: if Americans are allowed to intervene in foreign politics, why critique Bill Gates for doing so? I am truly interested in understanding your positions, but if they are nothing but a version of “it’s okay when I do it but not when someone who disagrees with me does,” then I’ll look elsewhere.

  • Awesome

    @ Eric Dondero

    You aren’t really “pro-freedom” unless you actually believe in affording that same “freedom” to everyone, equally, with all the same laws.

    @Eric Dondero

    Thanks for the spelling lesson. Antiwar.com is a libertarian site, which I read on a regular basis. Fortunately, not all libertarians are paranoid and ignorant.

    Your dystopian vision of a “Muslim takeover” is so absurd, I’m not going to waste time debunking it. I find it comical.

    “…you leftist freedom hating Nazis.”

    I would suggest you take a political science 101 class yourself. Nazis were from the far right, and would be more closely aligned with Geert Wilders than anyone you’d find here.

    None of us sympathize with Nazis, nor do we “hate freedom,” whatever that means. In fact, contrary to popular opinion, we’re not even all leftists.

    Your bizarre rant exposes a lot more about you than it does about us.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Correction for a poster up above. The support Geert Wilders receives here in the United States is from libertarians. As in LIBERTARIAN! Not Christian Right. Perhaps we should spell the word for you, since you all seem to be all too unfamiliar with our movement.

    L-I-B-E-R-T-A-R-I-A-N.

    Like Geert, we libertarians do not wish that our girlfriends/wives are forced to wear ugly black burqas from head to toe, our gay friend hung from lampposts, our marijuana smoking buddies jailed for life, alcohol and gambling outlawed, and “loose women” stoned to death in the town square.

    If Christian Rightists want to support Geert Wilders and other libertarians, fine, we’ll take it. But they should know that the reason we oppose Islamism, is because we’re just fine with libertinism, and oppose creeping fundamentalism in any form.

    Please clarify? Is that your position?

    My readers, who are staunchly pro-freedom, and pro-Geert Wilders would love to know if you leftist freedom hating Nazis take such a stance.

    “All the Islamophobic shekel flows lead to Israel…”

    That’s not true.

    It is true there are a few extremists (mostly in the US) who are promoting Islamophobia, and we’ve documented that in this article and elsewhere:

    The Connection Between Zionism & Organized Islamophobia – The Facts
    http://www.loonwatch.com/2010/09/the-connection-between-zionism-and-organized-islamophobia-the-facts/

    http://www.loonwatch.com/2011/10/fjordman-back-at-gates-of-vienna-whose-tipsters-include-caroline-glick/

    But it’s also true the majority of Jews/Israelis have nothing to do with that. In fact, some of them are working with Muslims to fight both Islamophobia and Antisemitism:

    Muslims and Jews Unite to Oppose EDL
    http://www.loonwatch.com/2011/12/muslims-and-jews-unite-to-oppose-edl/

    Also, there is no reason to let the far right off the hook for their behavior, as if they are being led around by “Zionists.”

    They are hateful on their own. Their support for Israel is in many cases skin deep, and in other cases, they are Antisemitic as well as Islamophobic:

    @eslaporte: Is Geert Wilders and The PVV anti-gay and anti woman?

  • Ser

    All the Islamophobic shekel flows lead to Israel. Its well known that Zionists seeks to incite hate against Muslims in order to shore up support for Israel. One of their main strategies in Europe is to co-opt Anti immigrant sentiment/nationalist movements to serve the cause of Zionism. The EDL thugs dont wave the Israeli flag for nothing.

    I think the “J” stands for “jerk.” Or “jack ass” maybe. Or possibly even “jack off.” But enough of that already. I mean really, I could keep going all night. The point is that most of this “Europe for Europeans” crap is really racism, and ironically its even found among some white Americans, Aussies and the like who have never even been to Europe, and indeed may be otherwise hostile towards “liberal” Europeans.

    They’ll be quick to point out that Islam isn’t a race, but gladly single out any Arab, Turk or Asian as a Target of their wrath. Being anti-Muslim is socially accepted and even pushed by the media. But never forget that tomorrow they will move on to the Hindu, the Jew, or the black. We’ve seen how Geert has railed against Poles for example. Xenophobia at its finest.

    I would point out, as others have, that Christianity is a foreign religion as well save for the fact thar there are quite a few atheists among the anti-Muslim crowd not to mention nationalists who adopt the trappings of Pagan religions. Moresp in Europe than in the US. At least we should be thankful that the bigots are so divided.

    No few of them cloak themselves in support for Israel either, whether Greet or le Pen. I don’t think it reflects any sincere belief on their part. Rather I think they like the idea of Jews going away and living in a separate state.

    Anyway, as for the Muslim plague, he got me on that one. Muslim plague rat for life. I’ve got all of Emilie Autumn’s cds to date and must have seen her in concert at least half a dozen times. EA for the win! I’m much more comfortable giving my money to a talented artist like her than to a worthless piece of shit like Geller, Spencer and WHOREowitz. At least she’s contributing something to the world.
