Progress?

Instead of "far right", The Times yesterday referred to Geert Wilders as "outspoken".

It's a start.

I saw him referred to as, "populist".  Yes, AP, we know the inferences and analogies we're supposed to draw from that.

 Brave.

Truth-telling.

Oh, how I would like to see Benedict XVI inviting Geert Wilders - that Catholic agnostic, as Oriana Fallaci was a Catholic atheist - to the Vatican for a private audience.

Not to tell him to shut up or back down, but to lay hands on him and bless him and tell him to keep on keeping on and to go on telling the truth.

Even more remarkable is the about turn by the then Dutch Justice Minister Piet Hein Donner who said in 2006:

"For me it is clear: if two-thirds of the Dutch population should want to introduce the Sharia tomorrow, then the possibility should exist," (this news article)

According to the American Thinker site, the inglorious Hein Donner has seen the writing on the wall and seeks to keep his neck unstretched. He now says this:

"The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society."
