The VVD is a Criminal Organization

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan reports on the latest sordid political scandal from The Netherlands.

The VVD (Dutch Conservatives) is a criminal organization

by H. Numan

We have had a bit of a ruckus going on for a fortnight straight. Two weeks ago the new cabinet was grilled by Parliament. We have a three star Michelin chef specialized in grilling: Geert Wilders. He wasn’t too happy with the presence of Ms. Soumaya Sahla in the VVD, and in Parliament. Of course everybody was mortified by his words. How dare he? The tone was not right. We don’t talk about things like that here. Geert introduced three non-confidence votes. All — of course — failed.

Who is this rose of the desert, Ms. Soumaya Sahla? She is a convicted terrorist. She was member of the mohammedan Hofstadgroep or Residence gang. This gang murdered Theo van Gogh. They planned to execute Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and many others. The gang was tracked down and cornered in an apartment. The police had to lay siege and use heavy weapons to arrest them. Sahla was arrested and convicted of terrorism. She appealed her sentence and was given more jail time on appeal. That is highly unusual. Especially since we’re talking about a woman and a muslima. Dutch courts are invariably very woman- and muslim-friendly, after all. The court stated that her regret was insincere. So insincere that the court decided to give her a little extra. In all, she served 3.5 years in a maximum security prison.

Now it gets interesting. After her release from jail she joined the VVD. Technically, that was not even possible. Why? Because if you want to actively join a political party you have to show a certificate of good behavior. Not just if you want to join a political party, but basically everywhere. You can’t get a job as a cleaner without one.

Sahla can’t get a verklaring omtrend het gedrag, as she is a convicted criminal. Yet she was able to join the VVD. Not only that, she had a meteoric career in it. Her mentor was Frits Bolkestein, the former leader of the party. How was that possible? Well, let’s discreetly say young women have something randy old goats greatly desire. And this randy old goat had something Sahla greatly desired. The power to wave away nasty bureaucratic rules that benefit no one.

It gets even better. Sahla was even able to blow herself into the security and terrorism committee of the VVD, because of her patron. The big bad wolf blew the houses of straw and sticks. But Sahla blows a lot better! Joining a parliamentary security committee requires — if your mouth isn’t as versatile as that of our lovely desert rose — clearance by the AIVD, our version of the FBI. That’s an automatic process. However, Frits Bolkestein was powerful enough to get her that clearance. All this went on for years without problems. Until the parliamentary debate.

Geert Wilders complained loudly about it. He had to sit next to a convicted terrorist who had actually planned to kill him. What did the prime minister plan to do about that? Why was his security detail not informed? And more. Much more. It was kind of impossible for the prime minister to pretend he didn’t know about it, as the affair had been going on for years. Right under his nose. So his defense, and that of his coalition as well as his opposition cronies, was to vilify Wilders for the tone of his questioning.

You think that was all? Nope. The media knew all about it. They simply kept it out of the news. The media knew at least six months ago this affair was going to blow up. Yet they kept it under a cast iron lid. Until they couldn’t anymore, which was when Wilders asked his questions.

First the VVD tried to look the other way. Nothing to see folks, move along! Next, they erased Soumaya Sahla from their intelligence web page, without actually removing her from the intelligence committee. Sahla refused to resign. A few days later her mug shot was back online, but not for long. Under much pressure the VVD had to cave in and regretfully accept the resignation of Sahla. Who had to be carried out of the building kicking and screaming. Of course it has nothing to do with Wilders. It was because of undue media attention and a massive public outcry, what else?

Now we get to the cherry. This, I’m forecasting, is the beginning of the end of the VVD. You see, the VVD pretends to be a liberal party, but no longer is. It is every bit as left-leaning and progressive as the Labour party or GreenLeft. They just package it with different words. “Less immigration”, “law and order”, “earn your living” that sort of rhetoric is standard VVD talk. Marxism may be the leading ideology, but the face of the party was Frits Bolkestein. That face is now in tatters.

He is the laughingstock of the country. Five Dutch ISIS brides, together with their brood, were repatriated back to The Netherlands, to be trailed (and pampered) here. The Dutch now joke that they flew on Bolkestein Airways.

Bolkestein never was prime minister, but he was — and still is — the face of the VVD. He retired years ago, but is very much present in the media and in the party. He alone can say whatever he wants. On occasion, Bolkestein even went so far as to chastise Mark Rutte and suggest a coalition with the PVV of Geert Wilders. If anyone else had said it, he would have been ousted from the party the same day. There is a good reason for that.

Bolkestein has retired. He is no longer a threat to anyone, least of all Rutte. He can say whatever he wants; in the party nobody takes any notice of it. But the voters lap it up! Every time Bolkestein opened his mouth on TV, the VVD gained voters. People loved him. So let the old fool fool the other fools.

That mask has fallen from his face. The strict, stern and highly respected éminence grise proved to be a randy old goat. A drooling octogenarian. Not strict, unless Sahla is into dominance. Not stern, and no longer highly respected. Just a doddering old sod. The law and order party is no longer a law and order party. They lost their brand image completely. Frits Bolkestein will prove to be the Dutch Gerald Ratner. There is only one difference: Gerald Ratner blew up his company in less than 20 seconds. The demise of the VVD is a process that started years ago, and will run for much longer.

Nevertheless, it’s the end of Sahla (for the moment), Bolkestein (forever) and the VVD. Until Geert Wilders brought this affair to light, Frits Bolkestein compensated for every progressive maneuver in the VVD. “Yeah sure, this is not what we expect of a liberal party, but we got Bolkestein. He’ll put things right.” The people adored him, and forgave the VVD just about everything. Now he is ridiculed. The VVD just became another progressive party where any desert rose can screw rise to the top. Provided they have exotic skills. The VVD lost the little bit that was left of its credibility.

This is the third large party that has committed suicide. The first one was the Dutch Labour Party, PvdA. Their rhetoric was no longer credible. The leader walked around in smelly sweaters pretending to be a laborer. It took a while, but the electorate finally saw through it. The next party that blew its brains out was the Christian Democrat party CDA. After they dumped Pieter Omtzigt they barely register in the polls. Likewise, it took years before the end arrived. Now it’s the VVD that cheerfully jumps off the cliff.

Not because of Wilders, mind you. It was all the fault of the media and the public. Definitely not because of Wilders! E pur si muove

I’m going one further than Wilders. He can’t say it, that’s why I will. All of the above shows the VVD is a criminal organization. If Ms. Sahla had hidden her criminal record, or falsified the required documentation, it would have been her fault. However, the VVD willingly and intentionally broke all the rules and requirements, even national security, for the gratification and benefit of a horny old man. Everybody within the top of the VVD knew all about it. For years.

  1. A sister in spirit of Kamala Sutra.

    Although she’s easy on the eyes (and apparently her knees) I wouldn’t want her anywhere around my generative organs.

  2. The downfall of Western Society – Horny Old Goats (aka Pedophiles) and Blue or Pink haired European Women.

  3. In fact, I wouldn’t say that the VVD was a liberal party and not anymore. The VVD was never a liberal party, because like other parties in Europe, it declares itself Eurocentric. How can a party be liberal, and at the same time advocate interference and the surrender of sovereignty to a bloated state like the European Union?

    The European Union not only interferes in the internal politics of countries, but also punishes them under pressure from other political figures, if they do not implement the globalist agenda. Take Poland, for example: they cannot appoint judges without the Brussels Politburo stepping in and threatening them.

    It’s no use being liberal just for being in favor of Capitalism, and the free market. Hitler was in favor of Free Market and Capitalism, just as China is in favor of Free Market and Capitalism, but not in favor of it being exercised without party supervision. They get rich financially, and so do their concentration camps.

  4. I am actually shocked that terrorist is still breathing and hasn’t been disappeared, back in the 80’s and 90’s these types disappeared all the time.

    • Apart from Jermaine Walters, who died in Syria, they’re all still around. At least one, Mohammed Bouyeri, is in prison.
      Jason Walters, Jermaine’s older brother, was released from jail. He claims to have de-radicalized and now works for consultancy firm Blue Water Intelligence as de-radicalization expert.
