Geert Wilders is a Dutch far-right politician and the founder and leader of the Party for Freedom, the fourth-largest political party in the Netherlands.  He is in Australia now for a presentation of his ideas but some people (very a few indeed) did not like a “free speech” idea at all.   Here what an ABC has to say about the meeting (h/t/ Huck Folder): “A group of angry protesters (Students for Palestine) has scuffled with people attending a Melbourne speech by Dutch MP Geert Wilders. But his speech received enthusiastic standing ovations.”

Security inside the function centre was tight for Mr. Wilders, who told a wildly enthusiastic audience that large-scale immigration by Muslims threatened the fabric of Australian life. “I’m also here to warn Australia about the true nature of Islam,” he said. ”It’s not just a religion, as so many people mistakenly think. It’s primarily a dangerous and totalitarian ideology.”
