Dutch cabinet gives in: Wilders is no Hitler anymore

A small step toward sanity. An update on this story, courtesy the Dutch Freedom Party:
Two thousand Dutch schools will receive mail from the state-subsidized Day of Respect Foundation this week.

The Foundation is forced by the Dutch cabinet to correct its class material that states that Geert Wilders is to be compared to Adolf Hitler. Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party (PVV) fought bitterly over the last days to have the text withdrawn.

The class material is already distributed to schools on a national scale. Many of these schools already have used the booklet, and many 10-to-12 year olds now know that Geert Wilders can be compared to Adolf Hitler, and that Geert Wilders has a problem with people “that look different”, a clear statement.
