I’m posting this separately because it’s too long for an update.
JB, one of our Flemish contacts, read my post on Vlaams Belang earlier today and sent me a wealth of additional information:
The far-left blog Yelloman is Charles Johnson’s source. It was his source before, last November. The interesting thing is that as their own source they link to AFF (Anti Fascist Front). The AFF piece, however, says that the meeting where Duke spoke (but not Nick Griffin) had been organized by the organization Eurorus. The founder and president of Eurorus is Kris Roman. Mr. Roman, the AFF article says, was a member of the Vlaams Belang until 1994 “when he was ousted by the VB for his “anti-Semitic and negationist [= holocaust denial] views”.
Roman startte zijn ‘politieke carrière’ in het Vlaams Blok waar hij begin 1994 werd buitengezet wegens té radicaal. In het boek ‘Les Rats Noirs’ (M. Abramowicz, L. Pire — 1996) wordt i.v.m. Roman’s uitsluiting melding gemaakt van antisemitische en negationistische uitlatingen waar de partijtop niet mee kon lachen. In het Belang van Limburg verklaarde hij zelf zijn ontslag als volgt: “de sterk flamingantische vleugel, vooral gesitueerd in Antwerpen heeft de bovenhand gehaald. Deze vleugel wil de zachtere toer opgaan wat het vreemdelingenprobleem betreft”.
The conference where Duke spoke was organized by Eurorus (of Kris Roman), a group with links to NSA (of Eddy Hermy). Hermy is a former Maoist and Roman a former VB member who was ousted in 1994 for anti-Semitism.

Roman’s wife is Russian. Eurorus is close to Russian Neo-Nazi groups. They favor a Russia-dominated Europe as an anti-American bulwark.
I am not sure whether Thierry De Rijcke is Milik’s “boyfriend”. Some other sources tell me that they have married or have an official partnership (this is a Belgian legal construction: You do not have to marry but can formalize your relationship through a registered partnership contract).
This is the NSA website with an ad for the Eurorus conference:
This is the website of the AFF (Anti Fascist Front) with info about Eurorus and its leader Kris Roman.
It is interesting that Yelloman (CJ’s source) links to AFF, hence they know that Roman was ousted from the VB in 1994, but that the Yelloman article does not mention this, and neither does Little Green Footballs.
Their attack on VB is based on the fact that Duke stayed at Milik’s house, which seems to have been true, but I think the woman had been trapped. The news was first published in the Flemish left-wing, anti-VB newspaper De Morgen. How did De Morgen know that Duke was staying at her house, unless someone went to DM with this info? Who? Why?
No one in Flanders knows David Duke. It is unlikely that Milik’s neighbors have ever heard of DD, let alone recognize him when he enters her house.
In a follow-up note, JB also said this:
BTW, Milik’s “husband” (partner?) is not Dewinter’s bodyguard.
I didn’t rely on LGF for the information about Mr. De Rijcke; it came from a machine translation of an article in De Telegraaf:
During his stay in Belgium gave him shelter at the Sint-Niklaas Flemish Milik Belangraadslid Karin and her husband Thierry De Rijcke, who was a bodyguard of Filip Dewinter.
But according to JB:
De Telegraaf (Dutch paper, i.e. from the Netherlands) based its story on the article in De Morgen (socialist Flemish paper). De Morgen wrote that he [Thierry De Rijcke] was (one of) Dewinter’s bodyguards.
The appropriate song for the “Now Playing” selection at Little Green Footballs would be “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by The Who.
