WILDERS MAY EMERGE AS KINGMAKER YET

Geert Wilders, head of the right-wing Dutch Freedom Party (PVV), launched a concept manifesto that calls for the "de-Islamization" of the Netherlands" as he leads in the polls to become the next prime minister. Wednesday March 15, the Dutch are kicking off a series of elections in Europe, in which the democratic nationists are expected to take their country back from the globalists. 


Geert Wilders' Freedom Party grew by 33% and is now the second largest party in Dutch Parliament.

UPDATE: Following Donald Trump's monster victory in the US, Geert Wilders' Freedom Party was eXpected to carry the general elections in the Netherlands. For years the polls have been confirming that expectation. As it is, the Freedom Party grew by 33% to the 2nd largest party in the country. The governing coalition was decimated. Notable is the emergence of an Islamist party gaining 3 seats in Parliament, a covert offshoot of Erdogan's AK Party. Daniel Greenfield has the story from The Hague, explaining why the results were rigged to begin with. The establishment parties have vowed to disenfranchise those who voted for the Freedom Party. As PM Rutte said in various speeches, PVV is "the wrong sort of populism". But coalition negotiations are expected to hit the rocks sooner rather than later: almost every possible combination is leading to ethical collisions between liberals and Christian-Democrat parties.
The media is spinning this as Prime Minister Rutte’s defeat of Geert Wilders, but the Labor half of the Second Rutte Cabinet just went up in flames. VVD lost quite a few seats, but remains the largest party only because so much of the overall vote had dissipated. Rutte will now have to awkwardly build an unstable coalition out of four parties just to avoid dealing with Wilders. It is quite possible though that Rutte will be trading the somewhat moderate Labor for GroenLinks which was formed out of, among others, the Communist Party of the Netherlands. 
When the media cheers that the “moderates” have defeated that terrible extremist, Geert Wilders, what they aren’t mentioning is that the alternative “moderate” coalitions may include the daughter party of the Communist Party. The election was, in a sense, always rigged. The political system of the Netherlands fragments the vote and then puts it back together in government coalitions. The demonization of Wilders and the PVV was meant to ensure that even if his political party had won a majority, it would not have been allowed to form a government. And so Wilders won more by being in the second spot than by achieving the majority that some polls had predicted, while leaving the PVV unable to form a government. 
Despite the attempts to kill it, smear it and destroy it, the Freedom Party continues to rise. And its enemies are being forced to respond to its ideas. The dangerous campaign by Turkey’s Islamist butcher, complete with threats and intimidation, helped Rutte salvage his government. But not his coalition. The centrist politics that made Rutte’s government possible are imploding. The decline of Rutte’s VVD and Labor is an unmistakable rejection of the status quo. The gains in this election flowed to parties further out on the spectrum on the right and the left. The traditionally moderate Dutch are losing their patience. The polarization is eliminating the center and replacing it with some hard choices. Geert Wilders and the PVV remain the embodiment of that choice. (More

DUTCH VOTERS IN BELLWETHER ELECTION


We predicted globalist Dutch PM Mark Rutte would apologize to the Turkish regime soon after the election. We were wrong; he did it before the election. According to the Erdogan oriented Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah, Rutte has already apologized to the Turkish PM Binali Yildirim.
“During a phone call, Mr. Rutte has apologised for the detention of our consul general and chargé d’affaires,” he said. “Mr. Rutte said that the detentions were carried out by mistake,” he added. “He stated that the Dutch officials also did not desire to increase tensions to such an extent. He even offered to have a dinner together,” Yıldırım concluded.

The best defense against shrieks about fake news is that the Turks have all the incentive to keep this nationalistic spat going so as to fire Turks up to vote for his power grabbing referendum on April 15.

Dutch Voters Head to the Polls as Populism Rises Across Europe

Dutch voters cast ballots Wednesday at polling booths across the nation in parliamentary elections that are being closely watched as a possible indicator of the strength of populism ahead of national votes in France and Germany later this year. Two-term Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s right-wing VVD party was leading in polls ahead of the Dutch vote, with the anti-Islam Party for Freedom of firebrand lawmaker Geert Wilders a close second. Wilders voted amid tight security and unprecedented media attention at a school in a modern neighborhood on the edge of The Hague early in the day. He expressed confidence that whatever the result of Wednesday’s election, the kind of populist politics he and others in Europe represent will be here to stay. “The genie will not go back into the bottle. People feel misrepresented,” he said, predicting this would show in elections later this year in France and Germany too. “Despite what the elite wants, politicians are getting strong who have a totally different concept of what the people want them to do,” he said.

DUTCH PM RISKS ROW WITH TURKEY TO DEFEAT WILDERS




Final debate between PM Mark Rutte and Geert Wilders at Erasmus University Rotterdam. 

Amidst the diplomatic spat with the Turks (more) the parties in the Dutch election are battling it out in the last day before the elections. Yesterday the news broke that a year ago, as part of the EU deal with Turkey, the Dutch PM Rutte as chairman of the European Council, the German chancellor Merkel and then Turkish PM Davutoglu made a secret arrangement: Germany and the Netherlands would take 150-250,000 refugees off Turkey's hands. The idea was that Merkel and Rutte would persuade other member states to accept 'their fair share' of this contingent of refugees. For good reasons, this never happened. The Germans and the Dutch are still on the books to absorb these 150-250,000 migrants...a year! The Turks are so angry, they are now threatening to blow up the entire deal. Moreover, the Turks say the EU never forked over the 6 billion euros it would pay for the upkeep of refugees in Turkey. An unconfirmed revelation today confirms the entire diplomatic spat was an election trick pulled by Rutte so he could present himself as a 'strong man'. German newspaper Bild broke the news last night that Rutte told the Turkish authorities they would be welcome to campaign for their referendum after the Dutch elections; Rutte feared correctly that the sight of a host of Turkish flags would contribute to a Wilders victory.

WILDERS SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN AS SECURITY DETAIL IS ARRESTED


Geert Wilders (Dutch Freedom Party), Marine le Pen (French Front National), Frauke Petry (German Alternative für Deutschland), Matteo Salvini (Italy’s Northern League) and Harald Vilimsky (Austria’s Freedom Party) gathered on January 21 at a convention in Koblenz, Germany. They called on European voters to participate in a patriotic spring to topple the European Union, reassert national sovereignty and secure national borders. 


UPDATE: The leader of the poll-topping Dutch Freedom Party (PVV), Geert Wilders, has announced the suspension of his campaign with less than three weeks to go before his nation’s general election after the discovery of a possible mole in his security detail. A Moroccan-origin Dutch police officer working on Mr Wilder’s security detail was arrested Monday and subsequently released on bail for allegedly leaking police information about his assignment. Claims in the Dutch media stated the officer had passed information to a Dutch-Moroccan criminal organisation. Subsequent revelations reported by Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad allege arrested officer Faris K. had been under suspicion in the past for security violations and that his brother Mohammed K. had been fired from Dutch police in 2007 for leaking police information, and had also been investigated for rape.  (More)

(VIDEO) PATRIOT PARTIES FOR DEMOCRATIC SPRING




Jan 21, 2017 RT - Leaders of several European nationalist parties gathered for the ‘Freedom for Europe’ congress in Koblenz. English voice over translation.

French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen declared Saturday that 2017 will be the “year of the awakening of the people of continental Europe” as she joined fellow nationalist leaders in Germany at the beginning of a year of high-stakes national elections. The mood was celebratory a day after Donald Trump was sworn in as U.S. president, following a campaign buoyed by anti-establishment and protectionist themes. “Yesterday, a new America. Today, hello Koblenz, a new Europe!” Dutch anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders said as he opened his speech at a congress center on the banks of the Rhine river, under heavy security. “The people of the west are awakening. They are throwing off the yoke of political correctness,” he said. “This year will be the year of the people … the year of liberation, the year of the patriotic spring.” (More)

ISLAM RISING: GEERT WILDERS' FITNA REVISITED


On the 15th anniversary of 9/11 it is perhaps fitting to revisit Geert Wilders' film document made in 2008, Fitna. In the tweet above a new release by the Christian Action Network. It shows that nothing has changed over the years. Geert Wilders was acquitted in the trial mentioned, but is currently facing new charges. The EU's open borders ideology, exacerbated by Merkel's asinine asylum policies have made matters infinitely worse.

UN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSIONER ATTACKS TRUMP, WILDERS


The vile UN Human Rights Commission headed by the Jordanian chief, Zeid Sa'ad Al Hussein is not hesitating to meddle in national affairs and elections by ripping into politicians like Trump and Wilders for defending their nations against Islam. The UN Chief hails from one of the vilest police states in the Middle East. Islam is the opposite, the contrary and entirely incompatible with Western Enlightenment values. Wilders calls the critique emanating from the globalist headquarters in New York "grotesque".

The United Nations human rights chief on Monday accused U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of spreading "humiliating racial and religious prejudice" and warned of a rise of populist politics that could turn violent. In comments (source) at a security and justice conference, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said he was addressing Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders and other "populists, demagogues and political fantasists." Naming Trump, Nigel Farage in Britain and Marine Le Pen in France, among others, he accused them of using "fear" tactics similar to those of Islamic State, also known as Daesh. "Make no mistake, I certainly do not equate the actions of nationalist demagogues with those of Daesh," he said. "But in its mode of communication, its use of half-truths and oversimplification, the propaganda of Daesh uses tactics similar to those of the populists." In a tweet, Wilders called Zeid "an idiot." Zeid labelled Wilders' March 2017 election platform, which calls for no Muslim immigrants, the closing of mosques and the banning of the Koran, as "grotesque." "The UN is grotesque," Wilders responded. "Let's get rid of these bureaucrats." (More)

GEERT WILDERS' RADICAL DE-ISLAMIZATION PROGRAM


The document, published ahead of a general election in March, calls for the closure of all mosques and Islamic schools, a ban on the Koran, and “no more immigrants from Islamic countries.” A ban on “Islamic headscarves” in public is also proposed, as well as the prohibition of all “Islamic expressions which violate public order.” All these measures will, Wilders argues, save the country €7.2 bn (US$8bn). “Enough of the mass immigration, asylum, terror, violence and lack of safety. Here is our plan: instead of financing the entire world and the people we do not want here, we give our money back to the citizens.
Zero Hedge ripped a translation from a site hat evidently hates Wilders. It is reading in part as follows:

1) De-Islamization
- Zero asylum seekers and no more immigrants from Muslim countries: we are closing our borders.
- Withdrawal of all residence permits already granted to asylum seekers; asylum seeker centers closed down.
- No more Muslim veils in public functions
- Ban of overall Muslim expressions that are against the public order
- Preventive incarceration of radical Muslims
- Criminals with double nationality stripped of their Dutch citizenship and deported
- Syrian fighters not allowed back in The Netherlands
- All Mosques and Muslim schools are to be closed and the Koran banned.
2) The Netherlands will reclaim its independence. Therefore, we leave the EU.
3) Direct democracy: binding referendums, citizens have the power.
4) Deductible/excess in healthcare insurance is eliminated
5) (House)Rents to be lowered
6) Age of retirement back to 65 years old. Pensions for everyone.
7) No more money for foreign aid, windmills, art, innovation, public broadcasters, etc.
8) Past budget cuts involving care will be reversed.
9) Plenty extra funds for defense and police
10) Lower income taxes
11) 50% reduction for vehicle ownership taxes

Newsweek: The Psychology Behind Geert Wilders


An article in Newsweek thanks Geert Wilders popularity to the Paris massacre of at Charlie Hebdo. It's open season on the charismatic Dutch anti Islam politician, so an psychologist has worked out an old family history is at the root of his anti Islam stance.

Cheap indeed. Who needs old colonial history when thousands of innocent human beings are being killed because of the Islamic concepts of Sharia and Jihad?
(...) Dutch anthropologist Lizzy van Leeuwen has been researching the origins of Wilders’s political philosophy since 2009, while working on a book about the colonial history of Holland. She discovered some material in the national archives and published an article later that year that revealed a secret Wilders had long kept hidden from the public eye: his Indonesian roots. Van Leeuwen is of similarly mixed blood, she said, and she was always bewildered at her mother’s support of Wilders and his anti-Islam positions. 
At the close of the colonial era, Dutchmen were driven from the Indies by Muslims, many of them settling in places like the Netherlands, so when van Leeuwen discovered Wilders’ Indonesian heritage, she grew curious. “There’s lots of bitterness among these old generations of colonial migrants,” she says. “That’s why Geert Wilders is a hero to them. He knows why people don’t feel comfortable in this society of migrant groups.” 
Van Leeuwen’s mother hides Wilders’s books when her daughter comes now, but she is among many with an Indonesian background who admiringly call Wilders a “Branie,” an Indonesian term for a man with chutzpah, with the balls to say what he thinks. “They were chased from their beautiful paradise in the sun,” the researcher told me. “Now here’s this guy saying it too, after everyone has been silent for 50 years, and he’s their hero.” 
Van Leeuwen discovered that Wilders’s grandfather was a high-ranking bureaucrat in the Dutch colony of Indonesia. Johan Ording, she says, went bankrupt several times in the Indies. He was fired while on holiday in Holland in 1934, warned not to return to the colony and later denied a pension. Mired in poverty, he and his family were forced back to the Netherlands in the middle of a harsh Dutch winter. “You can call it cheap psychology to link these things, but I think this has meaning for somebody like Geert Wilders,” Van Leeuwen says. “He is lost.” 
On some level, Van Leeuwen says, whether Wilders believes it or not, he’s blaming Muslims for what happened to his family and seeking retribution. “He wants to go back to the way the borders were drawn before the war. Before decolonization,” she says, referring to the period before Indonesia claimed its independence and was still a Dutch colony, called the Netherlands-Indies. “He once had serious plans to return parts of Belgium to ‘Greater’ Holland.” He dyes his hair, she thinks, to disguise his Indonesian roots. 
Wilders has responded to van Leeuwen’s findings only once, in a television interview, saying her thoughts about him were “twisted,” and he insists to me that he’s not seeking revenge against anyone. But as he gestures emphatically from the safety of this fortified office a day after the tragic massacre in Paris, it’s clear Wilders isn’t the least bit mournful. He’s fired up.
It may be a coincidence to Ms Van Leeuwen, but Wilders is equally popular among the Hindus originating from another former Dutch colony on the other side of the world, Suriname (Dutch Guyana). What unites both minorities? Centuries of experience with Islam.

Geert Wilders' Plan to Save the West


By Diana West


I was near Washington, D.C. interviewing the visiting Geert Wilders, leader of the Netherlands' Party for Freedom, when the news flashed that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Canadian convert to Islam who terrorized Ottawa on Wednesday, had previously had his passport lifted by the Canadian government as an officially designated "high-risk traveler." (Source)

That means that before Zehaf-Bibeau put a bullet through the chest of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a young reservist standing guard with an unloaded rifle at the Canadian National War Memorial, and before Zehaf-Bibeau rushed into the nation's Parliament building, where, thankfully, he was gunned down by security before he could murder again, Canadian authorities had already identified him as someone likely to join the jihad abroad. In fact, so likely was Zehaf-Bibeau to join a group such as ISIS, Canadian authorities did what many Western governments are doing in the name of counter-terrorism: They took Zehaf-Bideau's passport away.

"That's the same as the other one!" Wilders notes energetically, referring to Martin Couture-Rouleau, also an Islamic convert and "high-risk traveler," who drove his car into two Canadian soldiers in Quebec earlier in the week, killing Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. Couture-Rouleau, who was shot dead at the scene of his crime, had had his passport taken from him in July when he was arrested at the airport before he could travel to Turkey. In other words, but for good Canadian police work, it looks as if both of these murderers would have left Canada and disappeared into the bloody maw of the Islamic State.

Phew -- that was close? No, that was insane. Such a policy, which the Dutch government also follows, frustrates Wilders to no end. "Let them leave," says Wilders. "Let them leave, or detain them. I find it incomprehensible that Western governments stop people who want to leave to fight for jihad in Syria or Iraq." Let them go and never let them return, he says, or with sufficient evidence, detain them. While the West combats the Islamic State, he points out, "nothing is being done to make our own countries safe."

Wilders supports the U.S.-led bombing campaign against the Islamic State, and is proud that Dutch F-16s are flying combat missions. He points out, however, that military action in the Middle East is "not an excuse not to do anything domestically." But not doing anything domestically -- anything, that is, that protects our liberties at home from the encroachments of Islam and its body of repressive, discriminatory and misogynistic laws known as sharia -- perfectly describes the Western response in the post-9/11 era.

It is such policies of appeasement that Wilders has been combating for more than a decade as a member of the Dutch Parliament and also leader of the Party for Freedom. Wilders is subject to continuing Islamic death threats, requiring him to live in a 24/7 security bubble. It is these same policies of appeasement that have made the Netherlands and other European nations havens for supporters of even the most bloodthirsty factions in Islam, including the Islamic State, whose supporters now boldly wave their black flags of jihad in the middle of Amsterdam, menacing Jews and Christians alike.

In a recent speech to parliament, Wilders cited a study showing that nearly three-quarters of ethnic Turks and Moroccans in the Netherlands consider that those who leave to fight in Syria are "heroes." This isn't much different from 13 years ago, when, Wilders pointed out, roughly the same percentage of Dutch Muslims condoned the 9/11 attacks.

These are shocking figures. They provide more evidence of the failure of Muslim immigrants to assimilate into Dutch culture -- a failure repeated throughout Europe, where de facto Islamic sharia colonies have obliterated indigenous cultures. Little wonder a large percentage of Dutch -- two-thirds, according to a June poll Wilders cites -- now believe Islamic culture does not belong in the Netherlands.

What to do? Wilders offers a basic program to begin reversing the Islamization of the Netherlands and the wider West:
  1. Halt immigration from Islamic countries; 
  2. Close every Salafist mosque receiving money from Gulf countries;
  3. Stimulate voluntary re-emigration;
  4. Expel criminals with dual nationality to the country of their other nationality;
  5. Demand that resident passport-holders from Islamic countries renounce sharia law and the violent commands of the Koran;
  6. Bar those returning from jihad from re-entry.
They can take up residence in the Islamic State, Wilders says. Later, I watched Wilders on television with Sun TV's Michael Coren, who asked him how to manage the Islamic threat within Western societies without also impinging on civil liberties. "Listen, war has been declared on us," Wilders replied, "on Canada, by the Islamic state, by Muslim fundamentalists, (on) Europe, on the United States, on us, so we have to fight them as if it was a war. It is a war.

I am very much in favor of civil liberties, but I believe that in a time of war, we should have one, first priority -- and that is to protect our people -- the Canadian people, the Dutch people, the American people." He mentioned the ISIS flags that now come out on the streets in the Netherlands -- a ticket out of the country, in his view -- and concluded: "If you have the intention to rob our society of our rule of law, them you don't deserve the rights that come with that rule of law."
