Having "Right Wing" views elsewhere in the World (other than Japan) is perceived as being as negative as being anti-sematic.

I don’t think so. I wouldn’t listen to certain elements of the right who love to play the victim. There are sensible voices on the right.

I was surprised that supporters of Wilders on here completely avoided his description of ‘Moroccan scum’.

I think that’s negative. Nothing to do with left or right there.

He needs to form a government with 76 seats. His party has 37 so far.

'Moroccan scum'? That sounds Trumpian already, racist trash talk.

I smell a rat in this Dutch cheese!

Trump didn’t call out anyone by race and by the way, racism is a part of life, even if people don’t say how they feel verbally, they have the thoughts everyone has to a degree or one form of subtlety or extreme, people are allowed to think the way they want

A Dutch person could take that comment as racist, do you see my point what constitute as racist, having opinion?

Everyone is doing twists and all sorts of awkward spasms trying to insist he didn't win the election.

The Eurocrats are in denial.

The Dutch colonial empire was large. 1595 - 1975.

I have a cousin married to a Dutch national who lives on Dutch  Curacao in the Caribbean. Very nice place to live.

Wrong. What did Trump call the Mexicans?

He called illegal immigrants "animals,"

eating out of context, he said Mexico is not sending their best and brightest, and many that we get happened acting like animals. When you look at the crime stats of what some of them were accused of doing, that’s not being racist, it’s being a realist when you kill somebody and chop off their heads or rape, innocent women, that is an animalistic act, is it not?

we will not send our money and defense equipment such as F-16s to Ukraine.

The winds of change have blown in this sensible policy. The Dutch have a chance to become the honest brokers of Europe as opposed to more of the same.

"The Netherlands has previously provided equipment to Ukraine including T-72 tanks, Patriot air defense systems, PzH 2000 155 mm self-propelled howitzers and two Alkmaar-class minehunter vessels. The country teamed up with Denmark to supply F-16s and Leopard 2A4 tanks, and joined with Denmark and Germany to deliver more than 100 Leopard 1 tanks."
