Wow — just . . . Wow.
Dutch voters in the Netherlands – known for it’s support of Sharia law, Legalization of Marijuana and Hashish, and Unionization of their Army, have voted in what the London Telegraph calls a “Far Right-Wing” Party, which probably means they’re the moral equivalent of the Boy Scouts:
The European Parliament elections had been widely expected to punish governments struggling to cope with the global economic crisis, and polls released by the ANP news agency and broadcaster NOS put the Right-wing Freedom Party on course to win four of the 25 Dutch seats in the parliament, after having none in the previous assembly. This put Mr Wilders’ party second only to the ruling Christian Democrats, which got nearly 20 per cent of votes, according to the poll.
Mr Wilders, who was banned from Britain by the Home Office because of his controversial views on Islam, won support from Protestant and Catholic voters disenchanted with what has been perceived as the growing influence of the nation’s 800,000 Muslims, many of them immigrants from Morocco and Turkey.
So . . . let’s blame the Christians then.
Mr Wilders, whose party was contesting European elections for the first time, campaigned on an anti-EU platform and criticised Turkey’s bid to join the EU. “Should Turkey as an Islamic country be able to join the European Union? We are the only party in Holland that says, it is an Islamic country, so no, not in 10 years, not in a million years,” he said.
And let’s paint him as an Islamo-phobe, too. Marginalize him with out-of-context quotes. And while we’re at it, let’s lather it on thicker:
If the results are confirmed in the Netherlands, they will alarm EU leaders, who fear a low turnout could boost fringe and extremist parties and could further undermine confidence in the bloc’s leadership.
And then they contradict themselves:
The three main Dutch parties all lost seats on the first day of voting across the 27-country European Union, the exit polls showed. Opinion polls pointed to a low turnout and voter apathy, even though the 736-member assembly will have important powers to shape pan-European laws, and predicted gains for extremists at the expense of ruling parties such as Britain’s Labour Party.
So how can it be the fault of both (a) higher turnout by Christians, as well as (b) low turnout and voter apathy? I think the truth is something just barely glanced at: the EU is terrified that their “multicultural” and “inclusion” pap is not working, and traditional European voters are swinging more conservative as they see excesses by imigrant Muslims.
Just imagine how they’ll feel after the 2010 U.S. Elections and all hell breaks loose.
