Thanks, wokies!

by H. Numan

Behind the dikes life goes on. The formation of a new cabinet proceeds, as expected, at a glacially slow pace. But I have to give my sincere thanks to our extreme left-wing wokies and terrorists in Gaza. Without them, the PVV party would be nowhere. Our elections followed the genocide on Israelis by Hamas. The reaction of the left-wing parties was what gave the PVV the edge: pure and unmitigated anti-Semitism. It’s very popular in left-wing circles to root for the underdog (unless that’s Israel), but most Dutch were honestly disgusted. It wasn’t the only reason why the PVV won by a landslide, but it sure played a major part in it.

Have they learned? Of course not! They never learn; they are socialists. Simple as that. Their motto is repeat, repeat and repeat. Anti-Semitism is again in vogue. Again, it used to be in vogue 90 years ago, also by socialists. The Left excels in finding morally questionable fashion trends, such as grooming infants, castrating boys and racism. Black lives matter? Nope. All lives matter. Say that in the University of Amsterdam, and you’ll get lynched.

Speaking of the extreme woke University of Amsterdam: they did their best to help the PVV gain many more votes on 6 June. That’s when we’ll vote for the European clown show, known as the European Parliament. Normally voter turnout is lower than for provincial elections. Most people (including me) prefer watching paint dry. It’s more fun, and actually accomplishes something. Do remember that the European Parliament has absolutely no powers whatsoever. None. The EU is controlled at a level higher, by the heads of government of the member countries. The Euro parliament is window dressing, nothing more.

This election would normally rather irrelevant, but this time it’s different. Thanks to the Hamas supporters at the University of Amsterdam! Last week they occupied a university campus, demanding (and getting!) a list of names of Jews, Israelis (other than Jews) and Israeli companies who work for and with the university. The dean, spineless as he is, gave it to them. The demonstrators were, of course, masked and dressed with Palestinian scarves. They didn’t stop there. They occupied the campus, and set up tents and barricades to enforce their demands.

It turned so vile that police had to act. Which is saying something, because the mayor of Amsterdam is Femke Halsema, an avowed Palestinian supporter and — let’s be honest here — an anti-Semite. The riot police were sent in with big shovels to dismantle the barricades in order to remove the demonstrators. It’s a well-known fact that Dutch police officers are polite, easygoing and have trauma bears (teddy bears for little children) in their cars. But when in riot gear, they don’t pussyfoot around. From what I’ve seen, they didn’t.

As you might expect, the general public resented the occupation, and everybody woke cheered it. It did not sit well with the electorate, either. The PVV wasn’t doing great in the polls for the Euro elections. PVV voters are simply not interested in it. Now, after the very vocal support for Hamas by our nation’s finest and future leaders, the PVV doesn’t have to worry about a thing. The polls completely turned around.

The left-wing parties took great care not to denounce their unruly followers. Frans Timmermans, leader of the PvdA-GL combo, did not denounce them, but indirectly supported the poor oppressed innocent people of Gaza who were persecuted to the point of genocide by bad evil capitalist Israel. Geert Wilders couldn’t ask for a better promo, even if a genie gave him three wishes. Most people are simply disgusted. This is close enough to the coming elections, so it will matter.

Wait for it; there’s more!

Almost a century ago the Barnum and Bailey freak show was stopped because it was too humiliating for the performers. Today, in our modern enlightened times, we have the European Song Festival. Which deteriorated into an ultra-left-wing freak show that makes Barnum and Bailey look benign. This year it presented something unique: for the first time ever a participant was disqualified.

That was the Dutch participant, Joost Klein. He accosted the Israeli participant, and was disqualified. I said accosted, because it is not exactly clear what happened. Some say he merely insulted her and her team, others say he physically attacked (slapped) her. Before the show began, he made it known he would be promoting Gaza and Hamas, if he won. It is a bit controversial; the Swedish police saw no reason to arrest him. On the other side, the event committee had never disqualified a participant before, and something they didn’t want to start with now. Popular opinion is divided here. Most people think he at least severely misbehaved and was disqualified for that. His fans of course see nothing wrong with his undisputed questionable behavior. After all, it was only the Israeli participant. Who cares?

Mr. Klein is one of those celebrities who surf to fame on a wave of elite anti-Semitism. He gained popularity about a year ago on the Internet, and only after that on stage. His song Europapa is a kind of rap song, and controversial as well. Geert Wilders himself made a beautiful parody of it. It’s pretty big in the news right now, and our media do everything they can to make this arrogant smug bastard look good. He appeared out of nowhere a year ago, after this incident I think I can safely say his career has ended. So what has this got to do with Wilders? It’s another anti-Semitic brick in the wall, to paraphrase Pink Floyd. The singer is very much anti-PVV, extremely woke, in the limelight, ticking all the wrong boxes at exactly the right moment.

If the European Elections aren’t that important, why does it all matter?

The cabinet formation is still ongoing, and will be for a long time to come. Yes, there are signals the end is near, but that is part of the game. It is always near. Eventually, it is true. Even though the Euro elections don’t matter, or shouldn’t matter, they do. If Wilders were to gain one seat in the Euro parliament, it would not strengthen his hand in the negotiations, obviously. However, if he wins ten seats (the maximum) it strongly supports his position. Right now it looks like he’s going to get a full house.

Don’t forget he has to negotiate with two out of three parties who do not want him. The three parties, in order of importance:

  • NSC: absolutely no cabinet Wilders, if we can prevent it!
  • VVD: we’d rather not have a cabinet Wilders
  • BBB: we’re open for any cabinet that we can join

That means that only the BBB (farmers party) is open for a Wilders cabinet, and they are the smallest party by far. VVD and certainly NSC were planning to join any coalition but Wilders, only the election results forced them to negotiate with Wilders.

An ultra-left-wing coalition is still possible, but only in theory and based on the last electoral results. Those results are outdated already: most parties are shrinking while the PVV is still growing. The biggest part after the PVV is the PvdA/GL combo, at less than half the number of seats… Obviously, they don’t want new elections. Given the current trend, the PVV wouldn’t need much more than BBB to form a government!

One thought on “Thanks, Wokies!

  1. Geert Wilders strikes deal to form hard-right government in Netherlands.

    He has announced plans to unite outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s centre-right VVD, the new NSC party, and farmers’ protest party BBB in a coalition.

    He said discussions for a suitable Prime Minister candidate would be “picked up at a later moment” after he forfeited the position in a bid to get the parties to come together.

    Pieter Omtzigt, leader of the centrist NSC party said: “We’re going to form a government.
    “We’ll wait and see who Wilders proposes as a prime minister candidate.”
