Will the Dutch Protect their ‘Decadence’ from Islamic ‘Redeemers’?

Only in the Netherlands is it conceivable that a politician such as Geert Wilders, a brave maverick who for 13 years, 24 hours a day, has lived under police protection; held rallies while wearing a bulletproof vest; moved from one secret location to another one and was guarded as if he were an Asian potentate. The country has already had two political assassinations related to Islam: the politician Pim Fortuyn, and the filmmaker, Theo van Gogh. Another Dutch MP at the time, Ayaan Hirsi Ali — whose name, with Wilders’s, was next on the hit-list pinned with a knife to van Gogh’s corpse — ended up fleeing to the United States. Only Wilders’s protection, generously provided by the Dutch government, has so far avoided a third political murder.

    The wooden shoes keep the woodpeckers off their heads….I must say that in my experience the only people more stubborn and arrogant than a German is a Dutchman.
    It really is uncanny.

      “Wooden shoes, wooden heads.” Am I remembering an old Dutch expression in English translation properly from a Dutch friend of mine?

  • In a word: no.

    The murderer of Pim Fortuyn was paroled 3 years ago, because the Dutch courts do not disapprove of what he did. Wilders has been repeatedly prosecuted on humbug charges, btw.

    Here’s a suggestion: societies which are decadent and provide comfortable niches to sexual degenerates do not defend themselves and they prosecute people for defending themselves.

    I really think letting that one politician into the US was a mistake.It should be common knowledge, that if you are stupid enough to let your country be overrun( in that fashion), we will NOT let you seek refuge here, in the US. We have enough stupid here, as it is and don’t need any more………

    In Europe, Muslims and or liberals will wage a campaign of poltical assassinations. The US will too but it will lag by 2 or 3 years.
