Australia Censors Free Speech
Geert Wilders, the Dutch MP who frequently warns about the dangers of Islamic radicalism, has applied for a visa to visit and give speeches in Australia, but the application has stalled.
The official reason for the delay is that Wilders is on the Movement Alert List, a database of people of security concern to the Australian government. It means that his application is being held up at the Department of Immigration headquarters in Canberra while more thorough security checks are done.
But the real reason for the delay is that the high priests of Australian multiculturalism want to silence Wilders' warnings about the tragic failure of multiculturalism in Europe.
Some Australian politicians have effectively admitted that the visa imbroglio is all about politics and has nothing to do with security.
According to Senator Richard Di Natale, a member of the far-left Greens Party, Wilders is not welcome in Australia.
"We don't want to see Geert Wilders in this country. His views are not welcome here," Di Natale told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "This country's got a great story when it comes to multiculturalism, it's part of my own personal story, it's something we should all be proud of and here we've got a man who is the antithesis of multiculturalism."
A recent study titled "Secret Saudi Funding of Radical Islamic Groups in Australia" found that Saudi Arabia is spending billions of dollars to promote radical Islam in the country, including through the construction of mosques, schools and Islamic cultural centers.
