The great new webzine European Son,has a write-up on Freysingers fiery speech.
Oskar Freysinger, a Swiss People’s Party activist who organized the campaign to have minarets banned in Switzerland, spoke to an audience in Germany a few days ago, saying Europe would “never give up the freedoms for which we have fought.”
Freysinger opened his emotive address by asserting, ”Europe is an idea, a cultural landscape, an intellectual space shaped by history. Europe is the cradle of the modern constitutional democracy, the treasure-house of human rights, of freedom of opinion and expression. Or at least it use to be that, until recently.”
Western democracy, he said, “has increasingly been put into danger, as our political elite bend their necks before a certain religious dogma which is completely alien to our intellectual history, our values and rule of law.”
“This dogma demands total obedience from its followers,” Freysinger told he audience which applauded enthusiastically throughout, ”‘They should never integrate into our system of values.’ That would be “treason” to them and is even be punishable by death.”
Freysinger, invoking the Balkans War, accused Islamists of attempting to demoralize and occupy the West, aided by Western elites.
“They are supposed to conquer and subdue our western world,” he said, “Not with tanks, rockets or riflemen. (Something they could never accomplish, anyway.) Not through brutal revolt. No, Islam is in no hurry. It has an eternity. A long process of demoralization and slowmotion occupation of our weakened child-poor society is foreseen. The Islamic doctrine is intended to creep into our everyday life bit by bit and make Fortress Europe crumble from within. Just think of how the Serbs lost Kosovo. Through demographic development and the help of NATO, which aided the founding of the first Islamic state on European soil.”
“We are allowing this violent doctrine in to subvert our rule of law,” Freysinger continued, ”wholly unhindered in our cultural ghettos. Have we gone mad?! Now is the time to stand up! Come on! We just shrug our shoulders when girls are forced into marriage and integrated Muslims are pressured and threatened. And we look the other way, as the women are beaten and whole city districts taken over.”
The Swiss People’s Party activist claimed that he was speaking in Germany “Because no one [else] in Europe will stand up,” and said that he was fighting for the “pillar” of “love thy neighbor.”
“we are not fighting against people,” Freysinger asserted, ”we are fighting FOR people! We are fighting against a dogma that despises all humanity and wants to push us back into barbarity. We will not easily give up the freedom, for which we have fought so hard over the centuries.”
