    “…Rutte responding by saying a Wilders government would plunge the Netherlands into chaos…”

    Which is to be avoided, since the status quo is working so good.

    • The liberal status quo is plunging Western Civilization into chaos.

      It is now or, good by, Holland.

    Exactly like was predicted before Brexit? Things seem pretty stable in Britain to me.

    Are the Dutch people finally angry or are they still asleep (like most Canadians, for instance)? If they aren’t, they darn well should be, given what’s been allowed to happen to their country. And if they are angry, that vote will go to Wilders and his Party, and the pollsters will be proved wrong for about the 10th time in a row.

  • Better go Wild than fall into a Rut.

      Nice turn of phrase.

    The Netherlands is in chaos precisely because it’s been governed by dimwit dhimmis like Rutte.
