This picture may win the Fascist Boot prize for the Brussels 9/11 demonstration.
Here, the police are openly brutalizing a member of the EU parliament. The Baron thinks this poor guy is probably Frank Vanhecke, president of Vlaams Belang, though he would welcome correction from anyone who is sure of the man’s identity…
…oh, at this point of course, one is supposed to mention Vlaams Belang as the mandatory “extreme right wing” party. Remember the rules: the Left are activists and the Right are extremists. It’s from the international MSM-journalism style book.
It’s interesting how the police deliberately targeted many of the suits, who were not inciting anyone or threatening revolt. In this case, they seem to be using some sort of flag as an instrument of torture between this man’s legs. Again, perhaps someone could enlighten me.
My fellow Americans, when the next European sneers at American brutality, just show him this picture. The Brussels police, with their dogs and truncheons, make us look like rank amateurs.
To all Europeans, I would urge you not to give up. This is how the first round went in our American revolt against our colonial masters. We didn’t win until many years later. You have a long road ahead of you. For that matter, so do we.
As the Baron said, we are all Flemish now.
