Gay-bashers thrive in modern-day Netherlands


“Fortuyn was a Marxist professor, a champion of gay rights, women’s rights, liberal drug laws and euthanasia. Yet, because he opposed Muslim immigration, the CBC called him “right wing.””  -Ezra Levant

If you think Amsterdam is the gay capital of Europe, you’re half-right, but 10 years out of date. Today it’s the gay-bashing capital of Europe.

Because Amsterdam isn’t just gay. Now it’s Muslim, too. A million Moroccans and Turks have immigrated to the Netherlands, and sharia law rules the streets.

If you doubt it, then you haven’t been paying attention. Actually, that’s not fair. Gay-bashing is front-page news only when it’s committed by a straight, white male.

The media is terribly uncomfortable writing about gay-bashing by minorities. It’s the same reason why Canadian feminists are so eerily quiet about honour killings of Muslim girls.

According to an “offender study” by the University of Amsterdam, there were 201 reports of anti-gay violence in that city in 2007 — and researchers believe for every reported case there are as many as 25 unreported ones. Two thirds of the predators are Muslim youths.

The violence couldn’t be more brazen. It’s not in the back alleys in the dark, it’s in the heart of the city, often in broad daylight. It’s a direct dare to the Dutch government to show who rules the streets.

In 2008, 10 Muslim youths broke into a fashion show, dragged gay model Michael du Pree off the stage and beat him bloody. Last month, several lesbians were hit by beer bottles thrown at their heads as they marched in a parade of thousands to protest violence against gays. There’s a gay community centre in Amsterdam — you’d think that would be safe. Wrong. It’s a target, with home-invasion style beatings. No one is immune. Last year Hugo Braakhuis, the founder of Amdsterdam’s gay pride parade, was attacked.

In 2005, Chris Crain, former editor of America’s leading gay magazine, Washington Blade, was swarmed by seven Moroccan youths. “I was really surprised,” Crain told reporters at the time. “I felt comfortable because it is San Francisco times 10.” Or it used to be.

This didn’t happen all at once. Ten years ago Pim Fortuyn rang the alarm. “I don’t hate Islam,” he said. “I consider it a backward culture.”

He wanted to halt Muslim immigration, at least until those in the country accepted Holland’s liberal values, such as its acceptance of him as an openly gay political leader. “How wonderful that that’s possible. And I’d like to keep it that way.”

Fortuyn was a Marxist professor, a champion of gay rights, women’s rights, liberal drug laws and euthanasia. Yet, because he opposed Muslim immigration, the CBC called him “right wing.”

Fortuyn was assassinated in 2002 by a leftist radical opposed to his views on Islam.

Next came Theo van Gogh, a descendant of artist Vincent van Gogh. He made a movie about Islam’s treatment of women, called Submission.

A 26-year-old Dutch-Moroccan named Mohammed Bouyeri shot him eight times and tried to cut his head off. Then Bouyeri stabbed a knife into van Gogh’s chest with a letter threatening Western governments, Jews, and van Gogh’s collaborator, a liberal Muslim named Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Hirsi Ali was placed under police protection, until a judge ordered her out of her safe house. She now lives in the United States. Fortuyn, van Gogh and Hirsi Ali are gone from Holland, but the Moroccans and Turks aren’t.

Now comes Geert Wilders. Wilders is the leader of the Party for Freedom, the third-most popular party in Holland. The party joined the new government coalition in return for immigration cuts and a ban on burkas, the face-covering shrouds worn by some Muslim women.

His ideas are mainstream enough to become government policy. But this week, Wilders stood trial for “hate crimes” for those very same ideas.

Prosecutors say it’s a crime to compare the Qur’an to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, as Wilders has done, and that he has caused too much of the human emotion called hate.

Mohamed Rabbae supports the prosecution. He’s the chairman of the National Moroccan Council. He wants a judge to order Wilders to apologize. “We are for correcting him,” he said.

Rabbae is for a coerced apology and forced political re-education. And the Associated Press calls Rabbae a moderate.

These days, in Holland, unfortunately that’s true.

  1. No one is immune – thank you so much. I cannot stress this enough enough. Throughout my adult life, talking to office colleagues, acquaintances, etc.. whenever I have said that islam is a threatto all of us, the usual and tpical response was: you are a Jew.

    So I learned to shut my mouth and realized that I must be patient because one day, the white boys and girls will understand.
    When I see former colleagues, and discuss Islam, their attitudes have changed. They or someone in their family has had an encounterwith a muslim.

    I do not know who you are Vlad but I thank you very much for your website.

  2. The left has always made certain minorities (who don’t have to be minorities) their current favorites. After WWII it was the Jews, then the Jews founded their own nation and became strong enough to fight back, that ended the lefts love of the Jew because there were not Jewish victims for them to cheer. Next came the Blacks but that one is dying out because the Blacks are entrenched in the halls of power. The women came next but are generally refusing to toe the left wing line and are being dropped. The Gays are still favored as long as they follow the left wing line and don’t offend the new favorite the Moslems. The Moslems will probably be the last “minority” the left falls in love with since they are destroying all credibility the left has build up over the last Century. As I said in a post on a different article I expect civil wars in Europe real soon, since the last round of European civil wars led to communism and fascism hopefully the result of the new ones will be freedom.

  3. They still love all the communities you mentioned in their war against the Western Culture they so despise. However, the muslims and palastinians are the new favourites now. Gays are successful and funny. Blacks are likewise very good at stand up comedy (Chris Rock etc) but less successful in their community cohesion and young black males still wind up in prison more than they need to. Muslims are not funny. They do not do stand up. They do not do football or any sport. They do not make movies or art. They do not do Ballet or Dance Drama like the African peopled Lion King Dance Drama playing in London at the moment. In short they are not a very charismatic or talented people like gays or blacks. (I know they will whip out someone is not funny who is supposedly a comedian and then talk about some poem written ten centuries ago – typical of talentless people) In fashion you get gay blacks and they usually have a thing or two say! My friend who is a fashion photographer tells me all about them! So to cut to the chase, Muslims have got one Main thing and that is the media and politicians and lefties who love them. This is a very strong card. The other card is the streets and terror. Another strong card. Plus internaional finaching from the Gulf states. Another strong card which buys up media, educational influence.
    In years to come they will be buried by their lack of success in influencing the common man and women. People will have woken up and the special place will be no more. Peiple have woken up to the fact that blacks and gays do not have a special place but they have all the fun things these groups do in the arts, sports, stand up, tv etc.
