  • Crazy blonde xenophobes may finally be going out of style

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...605ac#comments

    The Dutch political establishment appeared Wednesday to fend off a challenge from anti-Muslim firebrand Geert Wilders, according to initial exit polls, a victory in a closely watched election that heartened centrist leaders across Europe who are fearful of populist upsets in their own nations.

    The result confirmedWilders as apowerful voice on immigration issues in the Netherlands. But it would leave in place Prime Minister Mark Rutte and do little to alter the fundamental dynamic in a country unhappy with the status quo but deeply divided among many political parties.

    The vote in the prosperous trading nation was seen as a bellwether for France and Germany, which head to the polls in the coming months and have also been shaken by fierce anti-immigrant sentiment. Brexit and the election of Donald Trump have cracked the door to a more fundamental reordering of the post-World War II Western order.

          Yes, well the "status quo" has changed quite a bit. The Dutch status quo is pretty damn good these days, actually.

          Either way I think liberals are generally going to oppose white nationalists like Wilders, status quo or not.

            The far right gained quite a bit in this election.

            And the status quo? For libs, that now free trade without checks and resistance to change. Enjoy

                It's crazy seeing people so geared up to be the new Nazis.

                    It took Hitler 18 years to come into style. Do you know how many terror attacks Europe will have in that span, what with the "Poor little children" coming of age and tired of being shunned?

                        I like how you frame that. Think of all the awful things that will be happening to Muslim children the next 18 years. Why wouldn't they start a race war? We will need Hitler!

If you want actual conversation from someone, why don't you change your behaviour and actually act like you do for once? Or is your entire point of posting here to just be one massive tool-troll? Because if it is, mission accomplished.

                              Blonde people are awesome. My whole family is blonde. Does that make me a racist? Oh, shit. I am a racist! A college kid smashing the windows out at Starbucks told me so.
