According to an old legend, there was once a small Dutch boy who upon passing a dyke on his way to school discovered a slight leak as water trickled in through a small hole. Knowing he would be in trouble if late for school, the undeterred boy clogged the hole with his very own fingers and waited many hours for help. Help eventually came in the form of other men who were able to repair the dyke and seal up the leak.
Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders, unlike his spiritual ancestor, never received the help the Netherlands – and all of Europe – so desperately needed. While this tale is typically told to children to introduce concepts like responsibility, there is a more physical lesson taught in the tale: a small drip, no matter how small, has the potential to become a stream. The Netherlands, like all EU members, has voted for drowning.
Of interest to the global community, the strategy to defeat Mr. Wilders is eerily similar to the strategy used against many anti-establishment candidates. Ukip’s Nigel Farage, the National Front’s Le Pen, or the Republican Donald Trump were all described as “far-right populist” candidates. Wilder, like all those listed above, was even being accused of being a “Russian puppet.”
Why are the groups that appear to most in tune with the public so often accused of being Russian controlled Nazis?
While many people like to talk about a political left or right, much of these discussions seem more geared towards religious thought than any particular set of political thinking. You see, especially in the case of Islamic migration, we are dealing in absolutes. The left offers no plan other than to accept all migrants, regardless of their impact on a particular society; any request for discussion, slowing down, or editing policy is responded to with accusations of being an Islamophobe.
Wilder, who considers himself a liberal on most stances, has stated his major disagreement with the EU is over a member state’s inability to choose where immigrants come from. That might seem like a sensible stance to many, but amongst an elitist group of disconnected men and women who have nothing but disdain for the very concept of an independent country, such talk is an affront to their irrational, sans-factual dream of a globalist community – where rape is addressed with the same non confrontational silence one would utilize while refraining to identify and embarrass a person who passed gas in a crowded room.
The globalist movement has a disdain for “populist” movements, since they have no concern over actual populations, which are looked at as obstacles to achieve ideological success. The Dutch loss, though unfortunate, does not negate the progress made by Farage and Trump; rather, the setback is merely a battle in a very long war. Attention should be paid to the French election, where Marine Le Pen is being accused of being a Putin puppet with far right leanings… Sound familiar?
