    Florida: Boca Raton country club cancels Wilders keynote fearing Muslim violence

    Florida: Boca Raton country club cancels Wilders keynote fearing Muslim violence

    Posted on May 11, 2015 by creeping

    This is the type of Islamophobia that Muslims celebrate. Remember, Islam means submission, not peace. And Americans are submitting to the status of dhimmi at an alarming pace. via Safety concerns lead Boca club to cancel GOP event with Islam foe | h/t Nimrod

    The Palm Beach County Republican Party will have to find another venue for a fundraiser featuring the Dutch politician and Islam critic who spoke at Sunday’s “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest in Texas.

    The local GOP booked Boca West Country Club for the $125-a-plate “Lobsterfest” dinner on Aug. 15 featuring Geert Wilders, leader of a right-wing party in the Dutch parliament. But the country club announced Thursday it has canceled the event because of safety concerns.

    Wilders’ criticisms of Islam have made him a target of extremist groups. He said that “Islam and freedom are totally incompatible” in his speech at the Texas cartoon contest. Shortly after he finished, two Muslim gunmen — one of whom was the target of a federal terror probe — began an attack but were shot and killed by police.

    “At the time the reservation for the dinner was made no one in management or in the catering department at Boca West knew the identity of the keynote speaker,” said Bob Locke, the country club’s chairman of the board. “Due to potential safety concerns associated with Mr. Wilders’ appearance, we have elected to cancel the reservation for this private event.”
    County Republican Chairman Michael Barnett was not immediately available for comment Thursday night.

    Earlier this week, Barnett said Wilders travels with his own security detail and the local GOP planned, even before the Texas event, to arrange for extra security as well.

    “I’ve heard him speak before and with everything in the world going on with regards to radical Islamic terrorism, I thought it would be good to hear his perspective,” Barnett said.

    Is not the role of USA government to protect the land of the free? Do we not have the right to assemble? Our republicans and democrats are failing at many things since 2000. Why would prudent people rely on a government of two parties s that have failed so badly at so much in less than two decades?

    The next generation of Americans will never experience the best years of American history because two generation before them failed to protect the freedoms that caused the history to be grand.
