Below is an overview of the Great Replacement by H. Numan from a Dutch perspective.
Are we being replaced?
by H. Numan
At this moment an old debate is being stirred up in The Netherlands. Conservative parties (PVV, FvD) openly question ‘omvolking’, or replacement by muslims. This is very much a taboo subject, proving to left-wing parties that the PVV and FvD really are definitely fascist. Otherwise they wouldn’t dare break the taboo. I’m describing the situation in The Netherlands, but it is roughly the same in other Western European countries, with local variations.
Let’s start with the camel in the room. Are we being replaced by muslims? De jure, no. The Dutch government never formulated such a policy. Neither has any other government in Europe. That means the Replacement Theory is, strictly speaking, a false one. However, the facts speak for themselves. De facto we are being replaced. We’re just not allowed to acknowledge the fact.
The next question is: Why are we being replaced? Greed. Pure unmitigated selfish greed. Nothing else. From day 1, some people made a lot of money out of it, or built their careers on it. I know quite a few people who did exactly that. Privately, they vent their hatred of the subjects that provide their income. But not from 9 to 5. I’m talking about social workers here. You have no idea how they think privately about muslim migrants. Until it’s time to go to work, of course. From 9 to 5 they are more social than Mother Theresa and Lenin combined. Once they clock out, they put on their white sheets and give any Grand Kleagle a run for his money.
However, you have to dance to the tune. If you don’t, doors close. Usually very quietly: people avoid you, don’t want to do business with you or promote someone else. Sometimes it’s quite open. They publicly say you are a neo-Nazi. Yes, I’m talking about enlightened well-educated socialists who are open to all opinions and love a debate. Except when it doesn’t correspond with their viewpoints. Sound familiar?
The problems began right after World War Two. There was a huge labor shortage. Understandable, as a lot of men had died during the war. It was even worse; the Dutch army was mobilized and send to the Dutch East Indies to prevent it becoming Indonesia. That’s also an economic problem, because it inevitably caused wages to rise. Something our Christian Democrat and Conservative VVD politicians didn’t like. They were paragons of free market enterprise — except when it came to wages.
The solution was an easy one. Hire scabs. People who are worse off than our poorest. The government recruited first Walloons, followed by Galicians in Spain, Italians and Greeks as ‘gastarbeiders’ or guest laborers. Those guys worked in steel mills and mines for a couple of years, then returned home. Usually because by then there was better-paying and less dangerous work available in their own countries.
The elites quickly came up with the myth of the lazy Dutchman who considered himself too good to work in the mines. The shaming worked, and still does even today. People believe that myth. A fairy tale, because it is simple a matter of making choices. Imagine you are a young man in a rural or poor environment. You can work from 9 to 5 in a factory, for a guilder a day. Or work in shifts in mines or steel mills for 2 guilders a day. You earn a lot more, but the work is very dangerous, hazardous to your health and brutally heavy. You’d be really lucky to live past 50 years. Both factories and mines were screaming for new workers. Understandably, most men opted to work in the factory for less money and a longer life. You and I would do exactly the same.
Once the flow of Greek and Spanish laborers stopped due to improved local economies, recruiters looked south of the Mediterranean and found plenty of takers. They had absolutely no idea what can of worms they were opening. Neither did the politicians.
You see, those people were very different. They came from a totally different culture and religion. Locally, they work according to the principle: anything goes, as long as the referee doesn’t see it. It’s not a problem to lie. Just make sure you are never found out. That’s among themselves. It’s a given with infidels. Here is one cultural difference most Western people refuse to understand. Another one is jizya. Muslims aren’t lying, stealing or cheating. They are merely collecting their dhimmi tax.
Where previous guest workers stayed for a couple of years, the new recruits stayed forever. The previous workers lived in ramshackle housing to make do. Those shoddy living conditions were a vast improvement over their own homes in Anatolia or the Atlas mountains for the new migrants. They had no problems living at the bottom of society. It’s what they were accustomed to. Their usual mode of operation was to work a few years, then fake some kind of illness and collect their rightfully earned jizya for the rest of their lives.
At the same time, the political situation had changed drastically. The old conservative establishment was being replaced by a new socialist establishment (revolution of 1968). The conservatives had political interests in business. The new socialists focused on people and managing people. At first all socialist parties were firmly against guest labor. For the common man, a guest laborer is a scab. Someone who willfully undercuts wages. That changed quickly when socialists discovered those poor muslim migrants were the goat with golden udders for them. They needed better housing (under control of socialists), education (reformed by socialists), support (by socialists) and more (also under control of socialists).
Yes, there were rumblings of discontent. The common men was not happy. First Boer Koekoek (farmer Koekoek; he used to be a farmer; it became his nickname) and later by Hans Janmaat. Those rumblings were quickly and effectively defused. Koekoek was ridiculed into oblivion, and Janmaat was immediately tarred neo-Nazi. So much so, that he had to become one. They operated for years at the fringes of politics. Both parties never got more than three seats at best.
Now the golden years of socialism began. Nothing was crazy enough. Everybody was shamed into correct behavior. The goat with the golden udders was pampered, had its every whim catered to, and milked. Of course they could stay in the country. Why on earth not? Oh, they are lonely. Well, bring your wife(s) and children over, you deserve it!
The rumblings remained, because muslims by default do not integrate. They most certainly don’t integrate into an infidel society! Well, said the socialists. That’s because they aren’t citizens. Why would they integrate, if they are considered foreigners? Just give them the vote, and it’ll be all right.
Oh no, it wasn’t. An easy-to-solve problem just got worse. When guest labor was quietly abolished in 1973, there were fewer than 50,000 muslims in The Netherlands. Give them a generous bonus to move back, and the problem could have been solved. Only that would put hard-working socialists out of business. We don’t want that! Pretty soon the floodgates were opened for wives and family. Quickly the number of muslims grew to half a million. Currently, there are more than 1.5 million muslims in the country.
Anything goes to make them — read: socialists — happy. Architects got unlimited funds to go multicultural. One designed halal housing. Marvelous! That’s deep thinking! A house designed with women’s and men’s quarters. The wives can do what they are supposed to (washing, cleaning, cooking, the kids) while the men are not disturbed while drinking tea. The only problem was that nobody wanted to live in those houses. Western families politely declined. Muslim families simply couldn’t afford it. They were busy investing (illicit) money to buy properties in Alanya or Casablanca. Who on earth wants to lose money on a silly dhimmi house? Even worse, you’d have to explain how you make your income to the IRS.
Other architects came up with brilliant plans: let’s beautify their ghettos! Yes, you read that right. Let’s put them in gilded cages. The derelict inner areas of our big cities got an expensive makeover. One designed a exotic halal bazaar in The Hague. A brilliant design of Dutch no-nonsense blah blah blah fused with Oriental bull crap. It’ll make them feel at home! No, it didn’t. The building stood empty for years. Why? The rent was way too high to make profit. Not to mention the Dutch design elements were probably blasphemous to devout muslims. But who cares? We made a ton of money out of it. As the cheaper inner cities were no longer cheap, muslims quickly took over lower class areas elsewhere in the city. Which, in the eyes of the elite, was a benefit. Makes everybody integrate and embrace multiculturalism.
White girl in a ‘black school’
Schools were another socialist focus. First they made sure Jean was educated as stupidly as Jan. Now both of them had to dumb down so muslim children would feel equal. In other words: black schools. Everybody had a school assigned to them, regardless of one’s choice. That was the plan. It didn’t work because socialists do not yet have that kind of power. But we do have lots of black schools now. Except for our socialist elites. Femke Halsema (now mayor of Amsterdam) blatantly and openly refused to send her kids to a black school, much to the chagrin of anything progressive. That caused an outcry, and basically killed the idea of making every school black.
As the problem only got bigger, the rumblings got louder. And a new man appeared. His name was Pim Fortuyn. He became hugely popular and demolished the myth that conservatives are by necessity fascists. It was a certainty he’d become the next prime minister. Now, don’t get too optimistic. He was almost certainly a man who could turn things around. But not the people he surrounded himself with. After his murder his party was elected, that cabinet only lasted weeks.
Something the elites knew all too well. They haven’t remained continuously in power since 1572 without learning a trick or two. Let the man have his moment of glory, then tear him down little by little. Repair the damage he caused after he is forced to resign. Business as usual. However, Fortuyn made one huge mistake. He was openly republican. Not only that, it caught on! He said in no uncertain words what he planned to do with the monarchy when he became PM. That cannot be tolerated.
Many years later, when the murderer of Fortuyn was released from prison and was somehow was able to afford a deluxe villa in the countryside, Princess (after her abdication) Beatrix bought a horse. She named it Volkert. Need I say more?
Killing the messenger didn’t solve the problem. Another man appeared. He was blond. Menacingly blond. As much as I admire Geert Wilders, I feel he is trying to plait soot. Simply because the situation is now irreversible. There are more than a million muslims in the country. Some for generations. You can’t send them back. No matter what. The law simply doesn’t allow it. Even if the law could be adjusted, their home countries absolutely refuse any cooperation. They’d much rather declare war. For two obvious reasons: they don’t have the infrastructure to receive so many people, and what do those #$#@ infidels think? That they can do whatever they want? The goat with golden udders is milked on both sides. Dutch socialists milk it, and so do the Moroccan and Turkish governments. Contributions from citizens overseas form a substantial part of their budgets. It also gives them a strong voice in countries they otherwise would have little say in.
Let’s be honest. Does guest labor work? Of course; it keeps prices low. But also wages. And it has to be managed carefully. Something that was equally carefully avoided. Do tell me: Why do we have to close our shoe factories and textile industry and farm the work out to Asia, while at the same time we keep unprofitable steel mills and mines running? “We do it for king and country!” sounds a bit hollow. We did it because a few people made a ton of money out of it.
The first phase was badly managed. The next phases were even worse. When socialists ran out of Moroccan and Turkish migrants, they focused on a newly-created source: asylum seekers. Right now, the situation is irreversible. Not really; it can be reversed, but not on a democratic way. They won’t go back unless forced to at gunpoint.
Which brings me to today. The world is changing fast. This time next year Putin and Xi Jinping won’t be there anymore. Both face insurmountable domestic problems. Even if Putin manages some kind of victory, it won’t be the victory he was aiming for, and it includes the economic destruction and humiliation of his country. Xi also saw his plans shattered. Zero covid doesn’t work, and he can forget invading Taiwan. The sanctions that merely hurt Russia would destroy China completely. In fact, our biggest problem with China is how to lessen sanctions, so as not to cause a mass genocide.
In Europe we had a huge debt crisis that was bought off with zero interest rates. That’s no longer the case. Instead of zero interest rates we’re heading towards hyperinflation.
The Russo-Ukrainian war will last a long time. Right now we’re heading towards a stalemate and trench warfare à la WW1. One thing is certain: the world will have difficulty feeding itself in 2023/4. Expect serious food riots from North Africa via the Middle East up to China. Those countries are the main importers of grain from Russia and Ukraine. Remember the Arab Spring? The cause was food shortages. Consider that a walk in the park compared to what will be coming. There isn’t enough fertilizer in the world for the coming crop. Besides, both Russia and Ukraine are busy with something else.
As always, socialists go on doing what they do best: ignore everything, do whatever they feel like doing. Oh, do you have a problem with that? Let’s shop for more problems to solve. Climate crisis, anyone? Build Back Better! LGBTQ+! That’s what we always do; divert attention.
It won’t work this time, because we ran out of money, out of food and out of options. Marie Antoinette is alleged to have said: If the people don’t have bread, why don’t they eat cake? I have heard elite socialists literally say: if the people can’t afford gas, why don’t they buy Teslas? They are the same people who went to the guillotine, completely oblivious of why the people didn’t get the joke.
