Dutch voters went to the polls yesterday to issue a proclamation loud and clear: We’ve had enough of these Muslims. Okay, not every voter said that out loud, but the election results were, um, disheartening.
Dave Weigel over at the Washington Post writes:
The Freedom Party, which supports a ban on Muslims entering the country and a tax on headscarves, surged from nine to 24 seats in the 150-member parliament, making it the third largest party. That’s much less than the party needs to try and form a government or join a coalition — two center-left parties have a combined 61 seats — but it makes the party the main force of the political right, and gives its leader Geert Wilders an outside chance of a role in government.
This guy, this Geert Wilders, he is no good. He’s like a Dutch George Wallace with dyed platinum hair. The Freedom party has also proposed a ban on the Koran and on building new mosques, and frequently compares the Koran to “Mein Kampf.”
Hahahahaha, oh man, there is just good news from all corners of the Earth, every day.
