All around the world, nationalists are gaining ground. Why?
After the sans culottes rose up against Louis XVI in 1789 they drew up a declaration of the universal rights of man and of the citizen. Napoleon’s Grande Armée marched not just for the glory of France but for liberty, equality and fraternity. By contrast, the nationalism born with the unification of Germany decades later harked back to Blut und Boden—blood and soil—a romantic and exclusive belief in race and tradition as the wellspring of national belonging. The German legions were fighting for their Volk and against the world.
All societies draw on nationalism of one sort or another to define relations between the state, the citizen and the outside world. Craig Calhoun, an American sociologist, argues that cosmopolitan elites, who sometimes yearn for a post-nationalist order, underestimate “how central nationalist categories are to political and social theory—and to practical reasoning about democracy, political legitimacy and the nature of society itself.”
It is troubling, then, how many countries are shifting from the universal, civic nationalism towards the blood-and-soil, ethnic sort. As positive patriotism warps into negative nationalism, solidarity is mutating into distrust of minorities, who are present in growing numbers (see chart 1). A benign love of one’s country—the spirit that impels Americans to salute the Stars and Stripes, Nigerians to cheer the Super Eagles and Britons to buy Duchess of Cambridge teacups—is being replaced by an urge to look on the world with mistrust.

This week, a documentary called “Wilders” premiered at DocFest, a film festival for documentaries in the British town of Sheffield.
The documentary is made by American film director Stephen Robert Morse. Although he does not agree with my political views, he at least tried to bring a balanced story, which is more than I can say of many Dutch journalists.
I allowed Morse and his team to follow me around for a few months. The documentary shows how, due to Islamic death threats, I have to live under 24/7 police protection, am being driven around in armoured cars, am obliged to wear a bulletproof vest whenever I have to speak in public, etc.
Some live in almost similar situations, such as Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard and his Swedish colleague Lars Vilks, British author Salman Rushie, Danish historian Lars Hedegaard, and others. In that sense, this documentary is also a tribute to them. What we all have in common is that we are on Islam’s death list. But what always strikes me is that I am the only elected politician on the list.

Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders accepts American Freedom Alliance’s Heroes of Conscience Award with a firebrand speech: ‘We must not be silent, we shall not cease! The Islamic revolution is a threat to liberal Judeo-Christian western culture which we must stamp-out!’ MP Wilders is the founder and leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid – PVV) and goes into detail on steps he wishes people insist their government representatives take to keep them free and safe.

“The Netherlands are no longer the Netherlands. We are being colonized. Our population is being replaced by people with norms and values that are not ours. By a culture of hate and violence. But this is our country. And we have to take it back. The Netherlands must be ours again.” Geert Wilder

Posted onMarch 19, 2017byifnm|Comments Off on Tancredo: Iowa’s Congressman Steve King Target of Globalist Assassins
This week Congressman Steve King of Iowa made the following comment on his Twitter account about the outcome of the Dutch election contest between nationalist candidate Geert Wilders and the incumbent socialist Prime Minister:
“Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”
By the ensuing mud fight, you would think Congressman King had praised the beheading of children or “honor killings.” But, no: King had only committed a crime against “diversity” by saying American culture is different and is worth saving.
Geert Wilders’ party did not win a majority in the Dutch national parliamentary elections on March 11 – actually, no party did– but he did increase his party’s share of the popular vote by about 30%. That means his views are attracting growing support, and to applaud that trend that arouses anger among progressives –and yes, hatred—against Steve King. Wilders is a leader among Europeans seeking to halt unrestricted immigration by millions of Muslims fleeing the Middle East’s civil wars and terrorist violence.
Steve King Is watching the slow collapse of European civilization and suggesting that the United States follow a different course. Perhaps if his Republican critics bothered to examine the demographic assault on Europe they would not be so quick to condemn his Paul Revere-like warning.
Turkish President Erdogan tells Muslims in Europe to have “at least five children,” because, “You are the future of Europe.” Do you think Erdogan is planning to win the 2040 World Cup—or something more “comprehensive.” If the Muslim Brotherhood has its way, it is the future of America as well.

Minister claims there is no difference between liberal politicians and ‘fascist’ far-right leader.
A Turkish minister has claimed “holy wars will soon begin” in Europe, in spite of the defeat of far-right leader Geert Wilders in the Netherlands elections.
Mevlut Cavusoglu, Turkey’s foreign minister, did not welcome the victory for Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s centre-right People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD).
“Now the election is over in the Netherlands…when you look at the many parties you see there is no difference between the social democrats and fascist Wilders,” he said according to a translation by Hurriyet.
“All have the same mentality. Where will you go? Where are you taking Europe? You have begun to collapse Europe. You are dragging Europe into the abyss. Holy wars will soon begin in Europe.”

Posted onFebruary 17, 2017byifnm|Comments Off on Firebrand Wilders Could Change Constitution to ‘De-Islamisize’ Netherlands
Geert Wilders, the Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker who is at the vanguard of a wave of European far-right populists aiming to take power at elections this year, is pushing ahead with his platform to “de-Islamisize” the Netherlands, despite lawyers saying it could breach the Dutch constitution.
In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press, Wilders insisted that his plans, which include closing the country’s borders to asylum seekers and migrants from Islamic countries, shutting all mosques and banning the Quran, are legal.
And he hinted he could even seek to change the constitution, if necessary. Wilders says, “a constitution is not something that is (set) in stone and can never be changed.”
Wilders’ Party is riding high in polls less than a month before parliamentary elections set for March 15.
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
