Although the outspoken right-winger has repeatedly criticised Islam, calling for a ban on the Koran and the closure of all mosques in the Netherlands, prosecutors say he crossed the line this time by targeting people on the basis of their ethnicity.
At a 2014 rally of his Party for Freedom (PVV), after supporters chanted they wanted "fewer" Moroccan nationals he replied: "We'll organise that."
I am torn by this one. On the one hand, from what little I remember, it couldn't happen to a nicer person and it will be fun to watch him squirm. OTOH, what he seems to have actually said was pretty tame and he is talking about Snackbars in Europe. I fear that it's a massive attack on freedumb of speech, especially when one accounts for what little he said, and I fear they have jumped the gun and will trivialise actual racism and further anger and embolden the Tweedledumbs.
If they would tack on a charge of unecessarily bad hairdo I think I could go full jihad on this.
