“D-Day” in the Netherlands

From the PVV website, a speech by Geert Wilders from late last night, as translated by our Flemish correspondent VH:

At an election meeting in The Hague last night, Geert Wilders gave his response to the preliminary results of European elections. The following is the text of the speech that he gave there:


The preliminary results are in and are stunning. For the first time the PVV joins these elections, and right away the first strike is a blow. It is not the official results, however, but a forecast. But the beginning is here: FOUR SEATS!

This is great news for the Netherlands. This is great news for people who are sick and tired of the European superstate, who are tired of this Balkenende/Bos government. People who get nothing for nothing, ordinary Dutch people who have to work hard for their money. They want their children to grow up in a Dutch Netherlands. And this is good news for all those Europeans who love Europe — but horrified of Eurabia and horrified by the European superstate that costs us billions a year.

It is also good news for the Party for Freedom. The first time we have participated, and then this result. It seems that we have become the second party of the Netherlands and larger than the PvdA [Socialists, government party] and larger than the VVD [center-right]. Folks, in one word: Super! Super, also for the Netherlands.

But it would even be better for the Netherlands if the Balkenende/Bos cabinet draws the conclusion it should, and that is to resign, leave [according to De Telegraaf, Geert Wilders did not have to finish this sentence, the audience yelled spontaneously: Get out!], and never come back again.

I dedicate this enormous success to all the volunteers, to all those hard workers, to all those thousands of Dutch people who went door to door with leaflets and pasted up posters and gave money to the one party that does not receive any subsidy. Folks, this is your success, this is your party.

Tonight it is D-Day. Tonight, our PVV-ers arrived at the beach, ready to fight. Ready to break through the left-wing cordon sanitaire. Today, the Party for Freedom found solid ground under its feet. Not only here in The Hague [Dutch parliament], but also in Brussels. This is an important next step. But I promise you: the best part is still to come.

The Netherlands is waking up from a long leftist nightmare. A nightmare of crazy high taxes, crime, lousy care, headscarves and burkas, of pauperizing, of mass immigration and Islamization.

– – – – – – – –

To all those Dutch people who yearn for a new beginning, who wish for a new start, who find that the Netherlands deserves so much better, I say: the Party for Freedom is advancing!

The Party for Freedom has rolled up its sleeves. We are ready. Our engine is warmed up. Friends, a turbo is on it. We will really start rolling now.

Tonight we’ll have a beer, but tomorrow the fight will continue all over again! Only one person may have a rest tomorrow. Because folks, most members of the European Parliament talk with honey in their mouth. But soon someone in Brussels will talk with a Rotterdam accent. And that is the man who started on the side of Pim Fortuyn and will fly out tonight.

He ran the best campaign of all. He made Hans van Baalen [VVD, center right and well-fed] sweat so much that he at the least lost ten pounds. Please pay your respects to our frontman. Here is the pride of Rotterdam, and also next in Brussels. Give him a big hand: Barry Madlener!

I was fortunate to meet Barry Madlener in Washington D.C. earlier this year. It’s good to know that he will soon be carrying the Dutch people’s business to Brussels.

  1. I am overjoyed at the success of the PVV. I am tickled however that to dismantle the EU one must become a part of it. Oh the irony. It seems that parts of Europe are slowly waking up from their long Leftist nightmare. Unfortunately for us here in the USA I fear we will have to go through at least 8 more years of our own “Labour” style government before the worm turns. But today I am something I have not been in a long time. Optimistic. What happens in the UK in the next couple of weeks can only boost that optimism.

  2. What will happen now? Will Mullah Obamaham bomb the crap out of Amsterdam and the Hague?

    Nonetheless, congratulations to both Geert and the dutch people!! With the sole exception for the pedophet fan club that is. They can all burn in hell with their beloved pedophet Mo.

  3. Also Czech public TV had some moronic comments, but they showed the cartoon of mo and added that Geert compared quran with Mein Kampf.

  4. The funny thing is that here in Limburg the feeling is very subdued, yet Geert has had his biggest breakthrough here. There are a few large towns that have been culturally enriched , but not to the extent that the large towns in the west have been. I can go for weeks if I do not go into the largest towns which are at least 20n miles away and not see a muslim. Geert is known for being an atheist, or should I say a profoundly none active Catholic. I have lived in this area for 25 years and Monday this week we celebrated the150 anniversary of the building of the chapel in the hamlet in which I live. The chapel was built so that Germans could come over the boarder, (No more that 20 meters from the chapel) and worship during Bismark’s Kulturekamp. ( if you don’t know what that means look it up). I would hazard a guess and say that the majority have voted for Geert, and the remainder for the CDA.

    It might seem arrogant but I think that we are at a cusp in European history. What seem to be missed is that is that it takes a hell of a long time for a large country like Germany France and England to change direction, smaller countries have not that problem we have seen this in Denmark, but once it becomes acceptable to vote for these so called right wing parties in the smaller counties then it will become more acceptable in the larger counties. The PVV after this election can no more be described by the Dutch press as a right wing fascist parties, they have entered the main stream. It will take a few more years for this to percolate into the larger countries.

    What has given me great pleasure from this election is that the chances of getting a conviction against Geert in the political trial against him has dropped to almost zero. I expect that by some form of jiggery pokkery charges will be dropped. I expect that the powers that be had wished that they had not even begun this farce, especially the Brits. The consequence of which if Geert will become only too obvious if he becomes States minister.

  5. Kulturkampf. Means culture struggle. Bismarck’s persecuting of Catholics because they were loyal to the Rome and the Pope and not the new German state.

  6. First good news for the Netherlands since Theo Van Gogh was assassinated by a Muslim jihadist in the streets of Amsterdam on the U.S. Presidential election day in November 2004.

    Goed zo, Hollanders! Uitstekend!

    (Good going, Dutch folks! Outstanding!)
