An original article explaining the situation in a Dutch village where locals rioted against yet another proposed government funded refugee center for muslims in population replacement numbers.

Dutch cheese, Dutch butter, Dutch milk, Dutch cows, dairy products have always been a major part of the Dutch economy and a reason for its fame. With nearly 4.5 million cows, each producing approximately 12 tons of manure per year, that is an incredible amount of BS. The Dutch solution is to inject it back into the soil, bit by bit, from February to September, working on the principle that if you spread it thin, no-one will complain.
So too with refugees. The list of official centers reads like a telephone book: [Aalten 300, Alkmaar 460, Almelo 378, Almere 800, Alphen aan den Rijn 1,140, Amersfoort 301, Apeldoorn 400, Arnhem – De Berg 400, Arnhem-Zuid – Vreedenburgh 339, Azelo 375, Baexem 425, Bellingwolde 345, Bergen aan Zee 95, Borculo 130, Breda 400, Budel-Cranendonck 1,700, Budel-Dorplein 239, Burgum 450, Delfzijl 430, Den Haag 600, Den Haag – Loosduinen 40, Den Helder – Doggershoek 575, Den Helder – Maaskampkazerne 300, Den Helder 372, Deventer 50, Doetinchem 350, Drachten 460, Dronten 1,000, Echt 414, Ede 370, Eindhoven 700, Emmen 500, Geeuwenbrug 75, Gilze en Rijen 1,200, Goes 300, Gorinchem 300, Grave 600, Groningen 550, Grou, Oer ‘t Hout 195, Gulpen-Wittem 250, Haarlem 400, Heerhugowaard 600, Heerlen 412, Hengelo (OV) 135, Hoogeveen 1,000, Katwijk 1,170, Kolham 400, Leersum 675, Lelystad Schepenen 230, Leeuwarden 600, Leiden 250, Luttelgeest 1,000, Maastricht 600, Middelburg 330, Musselkanaal 450, Nijmegen Heumensoord 3,000, Nijmegen 325, Oisterwijk 450, Ommen 370, Onnen 480, Ootmarsum 230, Oranje 700, Oude Pekela 467, Overberg 200, Overloon 800, Rosmalen 500, ‘s-Gravendeel 375, Schalkhaar 550, Scheerwolde 35, Sint Annaparochie 400, Stadskanaal 538, Sweikhuizen 242, Ter Apel 2,000, Terneuzen 600, Tilburg 400, Utrecht 450, Utrecht Kanaleneiland 500, Valkenswaard 400, Veenhuizen 600, Venlo 480, Vierhouten 60, Vledder 180, Wageningen 246, Wassenaar 750, Weert 1,000, Winterswijk 500, Zaanstad Rijshoutweg 300, Zaanstad Burg. in ‘t Veldpark 500, Zeist 379, Zweeloo 450, Zwolle IJsselhallen 400 …] spread them thin, avoid large concentrations and it’s impressive how many you can hide away in a country a little large than twice the size of the state of New Jersey.
The recent “refugee crisis” has meant however that even this is not enough. Refugees are being shuttled from one temporary location (where they are legally only allowed to stay for 72 hours) to another – sports halls, empty office buildings, vacation parks, tents. It’s hardly any wonder that locals, who see their children no longer able to take part in school sports because the local gym is occupied, are getting annoyed. It no wonder that the refugees themselves are becoming increasingly aggressive, and no surprise that problems like scabies outbreaks are beginning to appear.
Rather than limit the number of incoming refugees, all Dutch citizens are urged to step up and accept their moral responsibility. The Dutch COA agency sent out an appeal to local authorities to “do the right thing” and find locations where the refugees could be housed and the local authorities have responded.
Dutch democracy, like a lot of things Dutch, appears to be very similar to democracy in many other countries but, like a lot of other things Dutch, the Dutch have their very own interpretation. The democratic part of Dutch local authorities is the “Raad” or council. These are elected. Well, not quite. Votes can be cast for individuals (with literally hundreds of names of anonymous individuals appearing on ballot forms) or political parties. The parties then choose their office holders based on the number of total votes they received. This can mean that an office holder may actually have received only a few tens of votes. Above the council is the “burgermeester” (mayor, appointed, not elected) and the “wethouders” (aldermen, chosen by the council, not elected), together forming the “college van burgermeester en wethouders” (“B&W” for short). While the council may veto B&W decisions, the B&W holds the executive power and makes its decisions independently of the council.
Why is this important? It’s important because this is the reason why there have been riots in Geldermalsen, protests in Steenbergen, demonstrations in Glanerbrug, and why there will be many, many more.
