Geert Wilders vs. Planet Rutte

After almost eight months, the Dutch new government has finally taken office. It’s unprecedentedly large, with twenty-four cabinet members — a size made necessary by the cobbling-together of such disparate parties in order to avoid entering into a coalition with the PVV (Partij voor de Vrijheid, Party for Freedom), the party of Geert Wilders.

In the following video Mr. Wilders debates the new government in the opening session of the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of parliament. He refers to the cabinet as “Planet Rutte”, a reference to Prime Minister Mark Rutte. These elite apparatchiks have made themselves aloof and remote from the problems and concerns of ordinary Dutch people:

  1. Watching this brings home just how different the Netherlands is to Britain, a country it is often likened to. Not in forty years has a political leader in Britain been able to pillory individual politicians like this. The only MP Britain has had who is comparable with Wilders was Enoch Powell, and he was effectively defenestrated from British politics. Both men told the truth. Powell was demoted and punished, but Wilders retains his podium and position, despite his marginalization.

  2. Prime Minister Mark Rutte, his criminal cabinet, and the rest of those odds and ends political parties amount to not much more than a disillusioned Banana Republic. Most of us Europeans have been culturally trained to take things for granted, ignore history, and be against existence itself.

  3. Here is a link to an article that reminds me of a graph of the Dutch economy that I received by email recently. Essentially, the message was that during the period when the Netherlands didn’t yet have a government after the February election, GDP had been going through the roof. The economy simply didn’t realise that it meant to have a government, so it did its own happy thing.

  4. In my eyes Mr. Wilders is a true hero of Liberty and Democracy… both of which Islam must eradicate in order to maintain its death-grip on the throat of humanity.
