Dutch Anti-Islam MP Angry at ‘Right Wing Populist’ Label

2 Feb 2012

 

Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) has reacted against a pamphlet produced by the German justice ministry which labels the PVV a ‘right wing populist’ party. The brochure states that right wing populist parties could be a breeding ground for terrorism, and mentions Wilders twice by name. Wilders used his Twitter account to denounce the ‘scandalous’ statement, and demanded that the German ambassador explain why he is included in the brochure.
