"Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders was cleared of all five charges in the Netherlands on Thursday, where he had faced up to a year in prison for allegedly inciting violence through his anti-Islam rhetoric.
"TPM readers will remember Wilders as a special guest at Pamela Geller's rally against the proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero, which took place last September 11. Geller introduced Wilders as 'a modern-day Churchill,' and in his remarks he called the project 'a mosque, a house of sharia,' that is 'not only a provocation. It's humiliation.'"

"One of Europe's most prominent right-wing populists, Wilders argues that his remarks comparing Islam to Nazism and calling for a ban on the Quran are part of legitimate public debate that is protected by freedom of speech. Muslim groups say Wilders is infringing their right to freedom of religion by increasing discrimination against them."

"The second part of this contradiction I’m pondering is that the culture of the Internet is all about what’s funny.  Lisa Nakamura made the excellent point in her talk about the 'racist griefing' that goes on in online games which often makes explicit use of racist epithets, which she explains this way: 'The n-word is funny because it is so extreme that no one could really mean it. And humor is all about ‘not meaning it.’ If you take humor and the n-word, you get enlightened racism online and attention.' She calls this 'enlightened racism.'  Nakamura goes on to argue that paradoxically, 'the worse the racism and sexism are, the more extreme and cartoonish it is, the harder it is to take seriously, and the harder it is to call it out'.”

"Does this mean we're anointing the CMOs as the culture police in this country? No. Merely suggest to them that, as folks whose job it is to figure out where we're going vs. where we are, hate media is starting to run its course. Use your conscience; use

"You never see the racism coming. You're minding your own business, say, playing basketball or buying groceries or eating at Krispy Kreme when an Imus comes along and forces you to be 'black' so he can be 'white'."
