Wilders forms coalition Dutch government, promises hard line on migration and moving Dutch embassy to Jerusalem

.

ER Editor: A reminder that the Dutch elections took place way back on November 22, 2023 and Geert Wilders did well. Back then we published this —

A Pyrrhic Victory for Geert Wilders

After more than two decades of humiliation, ridicule and ostracism, last night (22 November) Geert Wilders had his finest hour. His Islamophobic PVV (Party for Freedom), which he founded in 2006, won the Dutch general elections, obtaining almost one quarter of the popular vote.

There seems to have been six months of horse trading since then to form a coalition government of four parties, with Wilders’ at the helm. A Politico piece from 2 days ago (May 15) explains:

If the coalition deal is confirmed, a new government will star Wilders’ far-right Party for Freedom (PVV) along with the center-right People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD), the right-wing populist Farmer-Citizen Movement (BBB) and the centrist New Social Contract (NSC). It is unlikely to represent business as usual.

The most immediate headache for the EU establishment will likely be the new Dutch migration plans. The coalition wants to have the “strictest asylum policy ever” via a temporary crisis law. It wants to opt out of certain EU migration rules, setting The Hague on a collision course with Brussels, which has just agreed a new pact on migration and asylum.

A second thorny issue is enlargement of the 27 country bloc. The Netherlands was already one of the stricter players in the EU, arguing that countries should move toward European accession based on internal reforms, not geopolitical considerations. The new coalition will focus even more on this merit-based process.

That’s potentially bad news for countries like Ukraine, which has been pushing for a fast track to EU membership.

The Politico.eu piece below is from yesterday, May 16, 2024. The article creates the impression that Wilders is going to be tough on immigration policy, but this Dutch article immediately below suggests that Wilders’ own voters don’t regard him as tough enough, that his party should pull out of immigration agreements with the EU and not simply wait until an uncomfortable migrant situation arises for the government under Wilders to take a stand. (Recall that a new migration deal was recently implemented in the EU and that some countries such as Poland and Hungary are having none of it)

Poll! PVV voters riled by SOFT immigration policy: ‘This doesn’t go far enough!’

The Twitterverse, like Politico, also believes Wilders is going to be tough on immigration —

Would this coalition be Zionism on Steroids? That would suit Super Zionist Wilders just fine. But we see Zionism going down in flames everywhere. What gives? It’s like we’re living in a movie right now on all fronts.

Dutch embassy could move to Jerusalem despite criticism from Palestinian rights groups

A reminder that Zionists love immigration into our countries – heck, they created it – and finger-point at Muslims for all the problems that are inevitably created as a result. Fact. Zionists don’t want our countries to be largely indigenous.

We are quoting this woman ironically —

Incongruously, the future PM is expected to be a politician called Ronald Plasterk from the Dutch Labour party, a band of social democrats (see here and here).

Future Dutch PM apologises to reluctant coalition partner

This has the feel of a circus where the public are being led by the nose.
