“Last week Mr Wilders announced that he is launching a movie about Islam next month. Doekle Terpstra responded, saying the politician was abusing freedom of speech. Mr Terpstra launched an appeal to his countrymen to stop the PVV leader from preaching his ‘evil message.’ To De Telegraaf, the largest paper in the Netherlands, he said that ‘Geert Wilders is evil, and evil has to be stopped.’ Following Mr Terpstra’s appeal the death threats against Mr Wilders have intensified dramatically. In Gouda anti-Wilders activists painted swastikas and the slogan ‘Wilders must die’ on the walls of a school.
“Meanwhile pro-Wilders groups have begun a boycott of Unilever products because Mr Terpstra, though a former leftist trade unionist, is today a member of the board of directors of Unilever Nederland.
The Anglo-Dutch multinational Unilever is known from international brands (mostly food, beverage, home and personal care products) such as Axe, Ben and Jerry’s, Bertolli, Best Foods, Brooke Bond, Colman’s, Cif, Dove, Findus, Glidat Strauss, Heartbrand, Hellmann’s, Imperial Margarine, Knorr, Lipton, Pepsodent, PG Tips, Sunsilk, Unox, Vaseline and countless others. Wilders’ supporters have vowed not to buy any Unilever products as long as the company keeps Doekle Terpstra on board.”
