Geert Wilders Wins; Left Freaks Out

Posted on | November 25, 2023 | 3 Comments

Stunning news this week from the Netherlands:

Geert Wilders and his Party for Freedom (PVV) have swept to a stunning victory in Dutch elections, with exit polls predicting that his populist anti-mass migration party will become the largest force in the House of Representatives in the Netherlands. . . .
Performing in a way that many would have considered unthinkable just a week ago, the populist party is now projected to have more than doubled its representation over the previous election in 2021 when the PVV only managed to secure 17 seats in the House.
The PVV was followed by the leftist-green coalition GL-PvdA of Great Reset proponent Frans Timmermans at 26 seats, the centre-right People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) at 23 seats, and the centrist New Social Contract (NSC) at 20.

Liberal media are trying to portray Wilders as a Trump imitator, when in fact Wilders long preceded the Trump phenomenon. When I heard the news of Wilders’ victory, the first person I thought of was Pamela Geller, who brought Wilders to CPAC in 2009. Wilders was also the keynote speaker at a Geller-organized 2015 event in Garland, Texas, that was attacked by two ISIS-inspired terrorists. These headlines give a taste of how Wilders’ victory inspired panic among liberals:

Opposition to mass immigration is “far right,” the media declare flatly, even though polling shows that a majority of U.S. voters believe (and have believed for many years) that the border is out of control, that illegal immigration is a serious problem, and that the overall level of immigration is too high. Most Americans want less immigration, and especially want stricter enforcement to prevent illegal immigration — but such opinions are “far right,” according to the media. This is an interesting example of media manipulation, whereby a mainstream (majority) opinion is transmogrified into an “extremist” position, while the fringe beliefs of the Left are treated as if they were mainstream.

Geert Wilders was ahead of his time, calling attention to immigration-related problems that most politicians (and their media allies) don’t want people to notice. When the 2015 “refugee crisis” hit Europe, suddenly what had been seen as a “far right” fringe became the voice of a majority. The left-leaning “elite” in politics and media tried to prevent this majority from gaining power, but as the victory of Wilders shows, a determined people can overwhelm elite resistance. Congratulations!
