You may remember my response when a leftwing woman blurted that out during the Hot Room podcast a while back. It wasn’t pretty.
And now, we have a report from Rotterdam (take time to read the whole thing):
Here entire neighborhoods look like the Middle East, women walk around veiled, the mayor is a Muslim, sharia law is applied in the courts and the theaters. (…)
Holland is an extraordinary test case. It is the country in which individual license is the most extensive – to the point of permitting euthanasia on children – in which the Christian identity is most faded, in which the Moslem presence is growing most boldly. (…)
Many of the neighborhoods in Rotterdam are captive to the darkest, most violent form of Islamism. Pim Fortuyn’s house stands out like a pearl in a sea of chador and niqab. It is at number 11 Burgerplein, behind the train station. Every now and then someone comes to put flowers in front of the home of the professor who was murdered in Amsterdam on May 6, 2002. Someone else leaves a card: “In Holland everything is tolerated, except for the truth.” A millionaire named Chris Tummesen bought Pim Fortuyn’s house so that it would remain intact. The evening before his murder Pim was nervous, and had said on television that a climate of demonization had been created against him and his ideas. And his fears came true, when he was shot in the head five times by Volkert van der Graaf, a militant of the animal rights left, scrawny, head shaved, eyes dark, dressed like an environmental purist in a handmade shirt, sandals, and goat’s wool socks, a strict vegetarian, “a guy impatient to change the world,” his friends say.
Sounds like a description of many of the leftoid female’s “male” friends, no?
And don’t you love how well-traveled, backpacked, Europass, hostel-renting lefties (my co-panelists boasted of same, naturally) seem the most naive about what’s really going on in Europe today, whereas backward hicks like me are better informed?
The only good news you can glean from the piece?
Rotterdam is below sea level! Woot!!
