The Elections Are Coming

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan reports on the latest political scandal, which comes during the run-up to next month’s provincial elections.

The elections are coming

by H. Numan

We’re off to another election, this time what are normally the most boring, unimportant and uninteresting elections you can think of: the provincial elections. But not this year. It’s looking even better with a nice juicy scandal popping up exactly at the right moment. Let’s start with that one, and look at the elections after that.

A teacher in a secondary technical school (VMBO) in Hoofddorp has been suspended for insulting mohammedanism *. What exactly did he do? Nothing, really. In a class he said that Mohammed was an adult man who married a 6-year-old. In The Netherlands that is considered, by law, pedophilia. A number of his (mohammedan) pupils were of course terribly offended, and complained to the school management. Who suspended him immediately. This incident happened in January, but is now picked up by the media and politics. Not a coincidence; there are elections coming.

What you probably don’t know is that Dutch education is going down the drain, with technical education leading the run into the abyss. VMBO is widely considered a kindergarten for lower-class (read: minority) children who are not allowed to leave school. When you read VMBO think of teenagers who really hate to be there but are required to do so by law. (Raising the education age lowers the unemployment rate. That’s one of the reasons.) It’s a rare VMBO, certainly in larger cities, that doesn’t have a majority of mohammedan pupils.

As with all such incidents, the accuser is always right and the accused is always wrong. Nobody even blinks an eye that pupils can report their teachers for that kind of incident, and nobody is much surprised some of the pupils add something extra. Like saying that the teacher said they stank, or their mothers are haram. Mohammedans never ever lie. Regardless their age. That’s a given. Politically correct as Dutch schools are, the teacher is suspended for at least another three months. The teacher is white and male, and said something politically incorrect. So what do you expect?

Now, in a more sane society this school would have to apologize to the teacher, give him a year’s salary in compensation, and he could start working in another school. Only we don’t live in a sane society. Of course the school board is always right, even if they are blatantly wrong. Dutch schools are all — very, very, very few exceptions — extremely politically correct. Why, they even take schoolchildren to climate demonstrations during school hours with the truant officers looking the other way.

This affair is current; what will happen nobody knows. It comes at exactly the right moment, though. On the 20th of March the Dutch go vote. Normally the provincial elections are the dullest and unimportant elections you can think of. But not this time. You see, our senators aren’t elected by the people. They are elected by the members of the provincial parliaments and the senate (a commission, that is) itself.

So over to the elections, and why the dullest of them all is suddenly exciting. In The Netherlands we have a bicameral parliament, where Tweede Kamer (‘second chamber’ = house of representatives) makes the rules and the Eerste Kamer (‘first chamber’ = senate) approves them. Tweede Kamer members are elected directly in national elections but senators are choose indirectly by the Provinciale Staten (provincial parliament) members. And those elections are on the 20th of March.

The conservatives (VVD) “won” the last national elections. That is, they lost massively but not enough to be ousted. They were capable of forming the current conservative-liberal-Christian-progressive coalition. That’s a mouth full of everything available, and that’s what it took to keep the PVV out. It is also painfully close to a minority government in the Tweede Kamer. The majority is exactly one seat.

Geert Wilders and Tommy Robinson in the Dutch Parliament

On December 17 Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands, invited Tommy Robinson to the Dutch parliament and gave him a tour.

The audio in this video leaves something to be desired, but you can at least get a general idea of what was discussed:

Hat tip: Steen.

Geert Wilders: Grant Asia Bibi Asylum in the Netherlands!

December 1, 2018

Parliamentary Questions from Geert Wilders, Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) to the Prime Minister of The Netherlands regarding granting asylum to Asia Bibi

1.   Are you willing to grant asylum in The Netherlands to Asia Bibi, the brave Christian girl from Pakistan who is threatened to be killed by radical Muslims?
2.   If yes, can you let your positive decision be known to her, her representatives and the Pakistani government?
3.   If no, why not, and isn’t it a bloody shame that while you allowed hundreds of thousands non-western immigrants and asylum seekers — many of whom Muslim — into the Netherlands and have often granted them asylum (among which are many fortune seekers, terrorists and Salafists), there is no room for a brave Christian girl who did nothing wrong, but fears death for so-called blasphemy against the fake prophet Mumammad?
4.   Shouldn’t you send all those fortune seekers — which you should not have allowed into our country — out of country as soon as possible and grant a true refugee such as Asia Bibi asylum in The Netherlands?
5.   Can you answer these question before Tuesday December 6, 11 am?
 

“How Can You Be Convicted for Telling the Truth?”

A brief, stirring speech by Geert Wilders about the ECHR ruling against Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff:

Provided that Western culture survives in Europe, this appeal will be among the many important statements by Mr. Wilders saved for posterity.

Meanwhile, the Islamic pushback against Wilders continues. See this concerted attack.

A Perp Walk For Mohammed

Most readers will remember Bosch Fawstin, whose cartoon won the “Draw Mohammed” contest in Garland, Texas, on May 3, 2015 — the same event at which two mujahideen were shot dead outside the venue when they tried to get inside and kill people.

Geert Wilders was the keynote speaker at that event. His presence (along with that of Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller) raised its profile high enough to make it a target for the Great Jihad.

The following cartoon by Bosch Fawstin shows Mr. Fawstin and Geert Wilders perp-walking Mohammed:

I’m not sure, but I think this cartoon was originally intended to be displayed last month during Mr. Wilders’ aborted “Draw Mohammed” contest in the Dutch Parliament.

Geert Wilders: “Where is the Outrage Here in Parliament About the Loss of Our Country?”

The following video shows excerpts from Geert Wilders’ remarks during the recent debate in the Dutch parliament about the budget memorandum.

Geert Wilders: Viktor Orbán Deserves a Nobel Prize

Earlier this week Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was rebuked by the European Parliament, after which Brussels promised to impose sanctions on Hungary for its “authoritarian rule”. However, the real issue, as correctly pointed out by Geert Wilders in the interview below, is that Mr. Orbán has successfully resisted having migrants forced on his country by the mandarins of the European Union.

The Pakistani Veto

Geert Wilders has cancelled the Draw Mohammed contest:

Right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders has canceled a planned ‘draw Muhammad’ cartoon contest in the Netherlands after Islamic terrorists threatened to attack the event.

The announcement follows a threat by a Pakistani Muslim who posted a video to Facebook vowing to assassinate Wilders before he was arrested.

“The threats resulting from the cartoon contest are running out of control,” Wilders said in a statement posted to Twitter. “Now other people are in danger because of extremist Muslims who see not only me but the Netherlands as a target.”

“If innocent people are murdered then they and no one else are responsible. To avoid the risk of victims from Islamic violence, I have decided to cancel the cartoon competition,” he added.

Wilders made the decision to cancel the event after an Islamist posted a video to Facebook announcing he was in the Hague and ready to kill the Dutch politician.

Tweet by Geert Wilders:

Here’s the video (thanks to C for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling):

As everyone who reads Gates of Vienna knows, Geert Wilders has lived with tight security protection since 2004. It’s too bad Pakistanis — or any other majority Muslim country — can publicly tell the world about life-threatening attacks against those in the West they disagree with, ensuring a shut down of the venue.

Fox News has the latest.

We saw what these miscreants did in Denmark, and then in Texas. Now they repeated the same game plan in the Netherlands. Threaten, attack, and silence. What other country would be willing to host this contest? Which country is free enough?

Moroccan Vlogger Mocks Dutch Woman Who Committed Suicide

Last week we posted a farewell video by Willie Dille, a Dutch politician for the PVV, who reported that she had been targeted for gang-rape by Muslims as an act of political terror. Shortly after recording her video she committed suicide.

The video below is vile, reprehensible mockery of the late Ms. Dille by an anonymous Moroccan vlogger in the Netherlands. The translator includes these contextual notes:

This guy is a Moroccan-Dutch vlogger with the persona “OpaNorma” (Granddad Norma). He has had videos taken down in the past, because he threatens people (in a sneaky, indirect way), spews homophobia, etc. He also does prank calls — gets Moroccan prostitutes, transsexuals etc. on the phone and starts lecturing them. He’s enforcing Moroccan tribal social norms.

The OIC Tries to Stop Geert Wilders’ Motoon Contest

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is — surprise, surprise — protesting Geert Wilders’ planned Mohammed Cartoon contest, which will be held later this year in the building housing the Lower Chamber (Tweede Kamer) of the Dutch parliament.

Here’s the OIC press release that came out earlier today:

OIC Strongly Condemns the Statement of a Dutch MP vowing to hold Cartoon Competition of the Prophet Mohamed Peace be upon Him

Date: 24/07/2018

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has strongly condemned the statement made by the Dutch parliament member Geert Wilders vowing to hold a cartoon competition of the Prophet peace be upon Him, at the end of this year.

The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen expressed his deep concern over this provocative contest, which is arousing further incitement and sowing the seeds of hatred among the various followers of religions.

HE Dr. Al-Othaimeen affirmed that as the entire world is facing religious extremism and terrorism and needs peace, dialogue and tolerance, it is time to set up internationally binding legal instruments to prevent incitement, racism and discrimination, religious hatred and respect [sic] for all religions. Freedom of expression does not mean insulting the feelings of others; an attitude which cuts against the universal principle of respect for religions.

Notice that this document is far more than a complaint: it is a call to action, a reminder that the West must implement Resolution 16/18 and criminalize Islamic blasphemy. When it says, “it is time to set up internationally binding legal instruments to prevent incitement, racism and discrimination, religious hatred and respect [sic] for all religions,” the OIC means it wants a new United Nations resolution requiring all member states to pass laws in their national legislatures that criminalize insults against Islam and the Grand PBUH. And since the OIC now owns a controlling share of the UN, such a resolution is more than likely.

Justin Trudeau will be eager to obey, as will Angela Merkel, and probably Emmanuel Macron as well. If Hillary Clinton were president, she’d no doubt be trying to push the appropriate bill through Congress. But Donald Trump and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley have clearly indicated that they won’t allow any of the multiculti tripe from the UN to be pushed down America’s throat, so we citizens of the Great Satan have a short breathing space before we join the sharia-lovers in Europe and Canada.

In response to the OIC’s announcement, Parliamentary questions were presented by PVV MPs Geert Wilders and Raymond de Roon to the Minister of Foreign Affairs about the OIC’s condemnation of the contest:

Geert Wilders to the #FreeTommy Rally: “We Are Tommy’s Band of Brothers”

Geert Wilders had been scheduled to speak at today’s #FreeTommy rally in London. However, the British government refused to allow his bodyguards to carry guns while in the UK, and the Metropolitan Police declined to provide him with a protection detail, so he was unable to attend.

Mr. Wilders sent the following video message to be shown in his absence to Tommy Robinson’s supporters in London today:

Below is the transcript of Mr. Wilders’ message, including the text of the speech he would have given if he had been able to attend the rally:

Geert Wilders Is Refused UK Police Protection for #FreeTommy Demo

There isn’t much direct news on this, but here’s a brief piece found on Twitter:

Geert Wilders’ speech for Tommy Robinson rally sabotaged by May’s Government

The United Kingdom is not free. The British people are a bound and seemingly gagged people.

In yet further efforts by the United Kingdom’s government, now seemingly to pander to the Muslim agenda, Geert Wilders’ speech, scheduled for the 14th at the #FreeTommy march, has to be cancelled.

The Party for Freedom leader tweeted this just now.

“UK Ambassador in The Hague just informed the Dutch authorities that they will not provide for my security in London this Saturday and will not give the Dutch diplomatic police weapon permits either, so, unfortunately, I cannot attend nor speak at the #FreeTommy rally in London.”

Is this another piece of timber in the gallows of which Theresa May’s government will hang? Will this attempt to silence the people, yet again, be the final nail and the impetus for the British people to roar yet louder?

Will Geert’s message be live streamed? Screens at the event? Periscope?

The British government may think they have kept Mr. Wilders’ speech out of London on Saturday. They can only prevent his physical appearance, however. His message will not be silenced.

By now, even the most skeptical of Brits are realising that ‘Tommy’ is the collective of all conservative Brits, here in the UK and beyond, that they are trying to censor and lock away.

What will you do? Join the #FreeTommy march 14 July on Whitehall.

It is to be fervently hoped that Geert Wilders will avail himself of technology to be heard at the demonstration. No doubt he’s working with the Middle East Forum to make that happen. Or with Ezra Levant, perhaps.

Don’t you wonder who else will be silenced?

By the way, there seems to be a balloon of Sadiq Khan flying over London. Or perhaps it was a photoshop job. At any rate, as a Muslim he can’t be portrayed as a pig, as has been done to Donald Trump (ask Trump if he cares), so he’ll have to be a bovine steer. You know, the kine missing their manly appurtenances.

Jihad Preached in the As-Sunnah Mosque — Who Knew?

The following video is an exposé by the Dutch public broadcaster NOS about the “extremism” preached at the as-Sunnah Mosque in The Hague.

Actually, the goings-on at as-Sunnah aren’t all that extreme, at least not by my standards. At a rough guess, the mosque would fall roughly at the mean for publicly expressed Islamic ideology. Like the vast majority of mosques — more than 80% of those in the USA — the preachers at as-Sunnah support jihad, the subordination of women, FGM, and application of the sharia. At a more “radical” mosque the imam might tell his congregants (in Arabic), “It’s time to take to the streets and kill the kuffar!” At a more “moderate” one, jihad and the caliphate might be mentioned only occasionally.

The Dutch journalists who produced this documentary, however, must have limited their previous study of Islam to the material aired by their own broadcasting outlet, because they are shocked — shocked! — to learn what actually goes on at the as-Sunnah Mosque.

They’d be well-advised to start reading Jihad Watch on a regular basis. But don’t hold your breath.
