Globalists decimated by populists in Dutch elections

In a dramatic turn of events in the Netherlands, veteran anti-Islamification campaigner Geert Wilders has secured a decisive victory, propelling his Party for Freedom (PVV) to become the largest political force in the country. With 99% of votes tallied, Wilders’ party has claimed 37 seats in the 150-seat parliament, more than doubling its previous count and surpassing even the most optimistic pre-election polls.

This outcome, which met with varied responses, has left left-wing and centrist-globalist activists grappling with the reality that a significant portion of voters has rejected their party platforms. The formation of a coalition, a traditional challenge in Dutch politics, now appears complex, with fresh polling indicating a preference for a right-wing coalition among the Dutch populace.

However, the election results have not been universally celebrated. An internal email from Dutch broadcaster BNNVARA, leaked to the public, reveals the management’s invitation for employees to gather and collectively mourn, describing the situation as a “dark dawn” and a “threat to society.” Critics note the broadcaster’s left-wing bias, citing a past scandal involving a biased documentary on the nation’s GreenLeft party.

Frans Timmermans, leader of the GreenLeft (GroenLinks, GL) and a veteran Eurocrat, expressed disappointment at their outcome of 25 seats. Addressing supporters, Timmermans urged the defense of democracy and the rule of law, criticizing Wilders and suggesting that some people might feel unwelcome in the country with Wilders leading the largest party.

The Netherlands, unique in Europe for having an electorally successful political party specifically focused on Muslims and Islamic issues, Denk (‘Think’), also weighed in. Party leader Stephan van Baarle labeled Wilders’ win a “threat to human rights and the rule of law,” causing fear. While committing to combatting a potential Wilders government, he emphasized Denk’s role in defending minorities against racism and discrimination.

Despite differing reactions, the Netherlands faces a period of political complexity as the impact of Wilders’ victory reverberates across the nation.
