My friend Paul Belien analyzes the "unofficial results" of yesterday's elections in the Netherlands today at Brussels Journal. They indicate:
the Freedom Party PVV of Dutch opposition leader Geert Wilders has won at least 4, maybe even 5, of the 25 Dutch MEP seats in the first European elections in which the PVV has ever participated. The party, founded by Mr Wilders two years ago, became the second largest party in the Netherlands, after the governing Christian-Democrat CDA of Prime Minister Jan-Peter Balkenende, which wins 5 seats.
In studying the Dutch electoral map, Paul also observes that the results reveal that "the PVV appeals to the whole spectrum of the Dutch indigenous population, from the right to the left, with its program against the Islamization of Europe, its outspoken support for Israel, and against the transformation of the European Union into a European superstate."
Mark the use of the phrase "indigenous population." Long paralyzed, neutralized or marginalized by the Left as "Nazis" or "racists" for any resistance to the socializing and Islamizing movements of past decades, the "indigenous population" in the Netherlands now has a leader, a party, and a platform. There is nothing "Nazi" or "racist" about any of it. And I'm thinking Wilders was correct when he told his supporters this week: “This is just the beginning. We’re going to get a lot bigger.”
