    “Who’s going to throw 500 stones at Wilders” the 22-year-old activist, Anne-Fleur Dekker tweeted, but she now maintains that her tweet was “cynical”, while Wilders says it was clearly meant as a threatening message.

    The blogger, activist and Green Party employee from Hilversum has since gone into hiding after her death threats, saying that she is being “targeted” by Wilders who wants to defend himself, including by an “incorrect message shared about her”.

    It is a message from the Love for Holland website. It is stated that Dekker could not have been objective as the head of a polling station in Hilversum. “The GroenLinks activist who was electoral chairman, calls for stoning Wilders – have the PVV votes disappeared? ” Wilders drew attention to the tweet on March 19 announcing it on Facebook.

    The information is “wrong”, the leftist main Dutch daily, the NRC complained. Anne-Fleur was never polling station chairman according to a spokesman from Hilversum, precisely because of her clear political preferences. She has never served in that position, according to NRC.

    Leftist are trying to defend the obvious death threat as “baseless allegations” about the “stoning of Wilders”. It was the result of printing an “incomplete Twitter conversation” they say.

    The converstaion is pretty much straightforward however: “I’m looking for people who want to stone the mosque of Beringen with me, at least 500 people, as a response to the radical Muslim violence last night,” wrote one woman. Anne-Fleur responded: “Fine person once again.” Moments later she wrote: “Who will throw 500 stones at Wilders? I find it a fun event.”

    Anne-Fleur told the newspaper she has received threats: “Threats with references to my hometown. I am terribly angry with Wilders because he knows very well that his supporters believe the messages he shares on Facebook.” She now sleeps at another address, she says.

    Wilders is surrounded by protection 24/7 however.
