European Politicians Say the Darndest Racial Slurs
Geert Wilders is a man of many incendiary words. The controversial Dutch politician was charged with, and later cleared of, inciting hatred against Muslims through his campaign against Islam in public life. For the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the 49-year-old traveled to New York City where he delivered a speech condemning plans to build a nearby Islamic center. Wilders has also called for a ban against the Koran, which he compared to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.
