Geert Wilders and the PVV Rally in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is one of the most Islamized cities in Europe — it’s right up there with Birmingham, Malmö, Marseille, and Berlin.

This afternoon Geert Wilders and the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) held an anti-Islamization rally in Rotterdam. Hundreds of PVV supporters marched with Mr. Wilders and listened to him speak.

Representatives of the Flemish separatist party Vlaams Belang were also present for part of the rally. In the photo below you can see Vlaams Belang leader Filip Dewinter holding the banner while marching alongside Geert Wilders:

The following video shows brief excerpts from the rally:

The Turkish party Denk (whose name is a bilingual wordplay in Dutch and Turkish, if I understand it correctly) staged a counter-demonstration against the PVV. Police kept the two groups forcibly separated.

Below are excerpts from a report published by Digital Journal:

Dutch far-right protest against govt, Islam

Hundreds of right-wing demonstrators crowded a main square at Rotterdam’s central station Saturday to protest what they describe as the “discrimination against ordinary Dutch citizens” in favour of immigrants and Muslims.

The protest by around 700 right-wing supporters comes as Dutch political parties gear up for local government elections in March, with issues such as immigration and integration again expected to feature prominently among its 13 million illegible [sic] voters.

“The Netherlands is our country, it’s not (Prime Minister) Mark Rutte’s country,” populist Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who led the demonstration, told the protesters.

“We live here, not in Morocco, we don’t live in Turkey or in Saudi Arabia, but in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands,” said Wilders.

“Here it’s our rules that count. I want to tell you that the Netherlands is not an Islamic country, do you agree?” Wilders said to loud applause, speaking through a megaphone and sporting his trademark peroxide hairdo.

He left the demonstration a short while later after safety concerns when his vehicle became boxed in by a throng of supporters and journalists.


Many protesters on Saturday waved Dutch flags and carried placards saying “Stop the Islamisation of Europe” and “Keep the Dutch culture, traditions, norms and values!”

Police — who were out in force — formed a line between right-wing demonstrators and a handful of anti-demonstrators led by two MPs of the leftist Denk Party, which draws its support mainly from Turkish and Moroccan communities.

“This (Wilders’ message) is a message of hatred and division and we’re against it. We have a message of unity and solidarity,” Denk leader Tunahan Kuzu told AFP.

Wilders’s PVV will compete in around 30 of the 335 local governments in the March 21 vote, with the party battling to find candidates to represent it in other local constituencies.

The PVV, however, will compete in Rotterdam, where it will face-off against Kuzu’s Denk party, among others.

  1. Not only Dewinter was there, but Anke Vandermeersch too. She’s the blonde to the right of Wilders.

    All in all a thoroughly disappointing number of Dutchmen and Dutchwomen to be willing to make just a symbolic stand against islamization…

    … all the more so in light of the fact that the muslim mayor of Rotterdam, Ahmed Aboutaleb, last December spoke positively about salafism, saying on radio that “Every muslim is to some degree a salafist”, explaining further that every muslim wants to emulate Mohammed.

    There was quite some uproar in the City Council, but Aboutaleb refused to take his words back:

    OK, so be it.

  2. “This (Wilders’ message) is a message of hatred and division and we’re against it. We have a message of unity and solidarity,” Denk leader Tunahan Kuzu told AFP.

    The irony is breathtaking.

    • Europe no longer belongs to the Europeans but to the EU, the 57 countries of the OIC and Leftist elites. How will Europeans compete against those combined entities – especially 57 Islamic countries with trillions of dollars to pay off the EU and the elites to further the Kalergi Plan which now is in high gear. Europe, you’re “slip slidin’ away”.

      You need to get more mad and angry than you are because it’s going to be you against them. God is on the side of Christians, however He might be letting the Muslim invasion happen to teach the lesson of the results of massive abortion for 50 years.

      In the end either you will have to submit to Islam or stand up and fight and drive Islam out of your land and back into Asia Minor. Drive the left out also. They can go to the OIC countries since they love Islam so much. There are 57 for them to choose from. If you aren’t already, start praying hard. Miracles do happen.

  3. “…. Wilders said to loud applause, speaking through a megaphone and sporting his trademark peroxide hairdo….”

    Off-topic, but I’d hoped that I’d seen the last of that boring, dim-witted journalistic tic of padding-out their story by mentioning some detail and referring to it as a “trademark”, but evidently “Digital Journal” is behind the times.

    Why even mention these things? Did they expect Wilders to arrive bald-headed, and not to use a megaphone ???

    (Am sending this from my lap-top with it’s trademark key-pad and illuminated screen, while drinking tea from my mug with it’s trademark external handle and warm brown liquid contents, whilst wearing pyjamas with their trademark parallel vertical stripes…)

    • The dig about his hair is to remind everyone that Mr Wilders does not have pure Dutch blood. He is a “mixed breed” and therefore a lesser being.

      For his part, Mr. Wilders’ blond hair is a thumb in the eye to those purists who, in turn, think they are doing a Big Reveal by mentioning his hair color in the first place. The Revealers repeatedly fail to get the joke: blondes do have more fun.

      • Wrong on the “mixed breed and therefore a lesser being” angle. The concept of “mixed breed individuals” is exactly what Kalergi (mixed breed himself – his mother was Japanese and his father Austro-Hungarian) and the EU are wanting, therefore since Geert Wilders is the epitomy of their goal.

        Fortunately for the Netherlands, Wilders identifies with his country and the Dutch.

      • Mr. Wilders looks plenty Dutch to me!

        Far moreso than the recent Miss Helsinki winner looks Finnish or the recent Miss Japan winner appears Japanese.
