Or an alternative title for this post could ‘Turkey Comes to the Aid of Geert Wilders’.
I’m just going to come out and say it – even though I could be totally wrong about this. Does anyone else think that the ‘Turkish protests’ in the Netherlands are teeny-weeny bit suspect? I hinted at this yesterday in the post about Geert Wilders – though I didn’t suggest it being a conspiracy at the time.
But with the Dutch elections just a day or so away now and concerns about Zionist-agent Geert Wilders and his PVV party “doing a Trump” and causing an upset, I thought it was more than curious timing that these violent, out-of-control protests suddenly kicked off in the Netherlands. At PRECISELY the time that suits Geert Wilders beautifully.
The protests are all being carried out by Turks, of course – which means (mostly) angry, aggressive ‘Muslims’. Even *I* can spin that immediately as ‘Muslim Hordes on the Rampage’ – even better (for Wilders), is the image of “Hundreds of protesters waving Turkish flags” on Dutch streets: which even I, in my ‘liberal’ outlook, think is a stupid, inappropriate thing for them to be doing in a central European country and for the sake of a Turkish government that has transformed itself into a dictatorship in all but name.
Seriously, I sometimes wonder whether people even know what they’re protesting or marching for anymore: or whether they just react, as so many often do, from sheer tribal reflex.
In fact, even *I* was thinking to myself ‘if they’re so passionate about the Erdogan government, why aren’t they back in Turkey instead of rioting in Rotterdam?’ Which is precisely what Geert Wilders then said later. Which immediately made me want to take a shower: for I was horrified to have thought the same thing he said.
I did a quick check too and noted that the Zionist-aligned and pro-Wilders Breitbart depicted the protests as ‘Islamist Mobs’ running riot in Rotterdam.
The situation has been so bad that, according to reports, ‘Dutch police used dogs and water cannon early on Sunday to disperse the crowd, which threw bottles and stones’. But again, given how prevalent it is these days in ‘alt-media’ to regard protesters as a conspiracy, I have to ask whether this unrest is all that it seems to be – or are these silly flag-waving people in Rotterdam more like “useful idiots” being utilised in a broader game?
The Dutch government’s decision to bar ministers from the Erdogan government from campaigning in the Netherlands seems entirely reasonable – and is supported by other European governments, including Germany. The Turkish ministers were in Holland specifically to convince the Dutch Turkish communities to support the Erdogan government’s plans to expand the Turkish President’s powers and alter the constitution: essentially, a drastic and further expansion of powers for a government that has already been oppressing minorities, shutting down media organisations and intimidating opposition politicians for some time now already.
The Dutch government has said it was trying to avoid the danger of ‘importing divisions’ into its own Turkish minority community, which has both pro and anti Erdogan camps. Entirely reasonable. There are lots of anti-Erdogan Turkish people in Holland too – but you wouldn’t think that from the footage we’ve been seeing, which instead creates the impression that all of the Turkish community in the Netherlands is marching for Erdogan.
My question is: was this unrest in Rotterdam merely an organic, unexpected reaction to the Dutch government’s move or was it being manipulated deliberately – and for the sake of Geert Wilders’ election chances?
In that scenario, my suggestion is not that the Dutch government was manipulating anything. But that some other agencies or external forces may have been involved in – or helped guide – the more violent or disruptive elements of the protest to turn it into a much bigger-impact event.
The timing just seems too curious to me. It could just be coincidence – or just bad timing. In which case, Geert Wilders might have fate on his side – which is not a nice thought.
Or it could be something more. Possibly even some element within the current Dutch government (who might be quietly sympathetic to Geert Wilders’ party) might’ve pushed for or guided this banning of the Turkish ministers, knowing it might create a reaction on the streets that could then be amplified and used for propaganda effect.
I am only speculating – there is no proof of this. And perhaps I’m just being too paranoid: but, after all the information I worked through in this research last week, I am perhaps bound to be suspicious of conspicuous timing.
Either way, Geert Wilders (and his Zionist-nationalist sponsors) must be very happy with this turn of events.
