Garland Muhammed Cartoons to be Televised in the Netherlands

Geert Wilders Speaks To Pegida GatheringGeert Wilders is at it again.

The Dutch far-right politician who was the keynote speaker at the “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest” last month in Garland, Texas that prompted an attack and left two dead, says he plans on showing the cartoons during a television broadcast in the Netherlands. To get around laws that would normally edit out depictions of the Prophet Muhammed on national TV, he’s using a loophole rule that states that political-party broadcasts cannot be edited.

Wilders’ party, The Party for Freedom, is anti-immigration and anti-Muslim, and holds 12 of 150 seats in Dutch parliament.  He says he’ll run the broadcast in the coming weeks.
