My colleague and AFDI/SIOA partner, Robert Spencer, is still in Germany, helping to usher in a new era in German politics with the announcement of René Stadtkewitz's new Freedom Party. Robert has been dodging fascists bottles and various attacks to get the fighting word out here.
Here's the latest.
Friday night the fascist thugs of Antifa found out which hotel the courageous anti-jihad politician René Stadtkewitz was planning to stay in when he came to Stuttgart to announce the founding of the local branch of his new Freedom Party; they reportedly broke the hotel's windows and painted threatening messages on its walls.
But that did not stop Stadtkewitz. He held the inaugural event of the local branch of his Freedom Party today in Stuttgart; I had the honor of speaking there. A desultory crowd of Antifa goons showed up; they had beaten a Pax Europa activist on the train on the way to the event, but that effort seems to have exhausted them. They passed up a golden opportunity to attack the cars that Stadtkewitz and and I were riding in, chanted a few Palestinian and Communist slogans, held the Hamas jihad terror flag aloft, smoked some cigarettes, and left. Apparently the resoluteness and determination that the anti-jihadists displayed over the last few days wore them out and took the wind out of their sails.
And indeed: the people at the Freedom Party event were all the more resolute and determined as a result of the violent intimidation to which they had been subjected. They realize that freedom hangs in the balance today in Germany, and in Europe and the U.S. as well, and they were prepared to take a stand.
I am proud and honored to stand with them, and will do so again at a Freedom Party event in Berlin on September 3, where René Stadtkewitz will be joined by two other European freedom fighters, Geert Wilders and Switzerland's Oskar Freysinger.
I hope that many more will join us. And I am confident that they will.
