The Vlaams Belang website reports that Filip Dewinter, a leader of the Flemish separatist party Vlaams Belang, has been threatened again, this time via the lyrics of a rap song. Our Flemish correspondent VH has translated the Dutch-language text:
Death Threats for Dewinter
“Kanker-racist met een grote mond, je zal sterven door middel van een dodelijke schotwond.” (“*** racist with a big mouth, you will die by a fatal gunshot wound”). This line is from the text of a rap song by the immigrant group The Cicatris which is circulating on the internet.
The rest of the song [YouTube video link] leaves little to the imagination:
Becoming well-known will certainly occur, with a bullet in your head and you can’t do nothing about that
It’s time for riots, time for revolution, death to Filip Dewinter are the words of Cicatris
– – – – – – – – –
I prepared myself and I will not wait. It won’t be long before we’re going to get you
Shots in the dark, a knife in your back
Didn’t you learn nothing from Theo Van Gogh and Pim Fortuyn?
In a statement Filip Dewinter says he is shocked. “This rap song is a blatant call for murder,” it reads. “These diabolical lyrics can incite an idiot to act on their words.” Dewinter has already filed a complaint because of the calls to violence [death threats].
