Blog: Europe says NO to populism

March 16th, 2017 08:30
Europes Trump

The election day in the netherlands was the night when they after brexit and the elections in the United States, said "Hey! Stop!" To the wrong kind of populism.

The Donald Trump of Europe has finally fallen

With 93.5 percent of the votes counted, Mark Rutte's party, VVD, got every fifth vote in the elections in the Netherlands.
The Right wing populist and leader of the Party PVV, Geert Wilders, acknowledged prime minister Mark Rutte's win.

In addition to congratulating Prime Minister Mark Rutte's victory, Wilders commented on a disappointing election result for their own party:

- We are among the election winners, but I would naturally rather be the largest party. We did not get the 30 places we hoped for, he said.

Congratulations from Europe
The elections in the Netherlands has been described as an important indicator of the right-wing populism strength in Europe before the upcoming elections in France and Germany.

The German Prime Minister Angela Merkel congratulated Rutte by phone on Thursday.

- I look forward to continuing the work together as friends, neighbors and Europeans, she said, according to her spokesman Steffen Seibert.

The French President Francois Hollande called Rutte's victory a "clear victory over extremism."

- Values such as openness, respect for others, and faith in the future of Europe is the only right answer to the nationalist impulses and isolationalism that shakes the world, said Hollande as a statement on Thursday.

In Germany, Martin Schultz, the leader of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), tweeted that he was relieved.

- But we must continue to fight for an open and free Europe, he wrote.

From Scotland, the first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, expressed herself briefly when she with one word revealed what she thought of the message that Wilders lost the election: "Good."

I think Donald Trump has contributed to Wilder's loss. People have seen that it is not a good idea to elect such a person, and it has mobilized enough resistance. I think the air has gone a bit out of the balloon across Europe for the extreme right-wing after Trumps escapades.
wilders didnt lose, he went from 13 seats to 19. he just didnt get as many more as some people expected

I guess that's why he acknowledged his defeat to Rutte
2017-03-16 08:40
i guess if geert wilders says something it must be true
2017-03-16 08:41
oh, it's you again who doesnt know shit about politics.
2017-03-17 14:26
oh, it you again who says the same shit on threads about politics.
2017-03-17 15:11
still didnt kys?
2017-03-17 18:22
PVV gained more seats but will be irrelevant for the upcoming coalition. He needed to at least be the biggest party in order to even have a chance of getting in the formation, that's why he lost.
2017-03-16 11:15
but geert didnt want to be in the formation. he gets paid to troll the entire country for 4 more years. thats a win for him.
2017-03-16 11:16
Fair enough! :)
2017-03-16 11:41
2017-03-16 11:25
there are 150 seats. no party ever gets a majority. nobody wins.
2017-03-16 12:05
#197 and #198 please. I really want to know
2017-03-28 01:45
correction: pvv went from 15 to 20
2017-03-16 09:02
considering that he ways way ahead of the VVD in polls only a couple of weeks ago, we can say that Rutte has 'won' in the past weeks of campaigning while Wilders has lost
2017-03-16 15:59
yeah okay but i think some people seem to think its like an american election where 1 party wins and the other loses and the only parties that are running are the vvd and pvv.
2017-03-16 16:10
I think you're right, I didn't notice that

idiot netherlands voted for vvd biggers liars supporting the holy war of muslims fucking hell islam is the only fucking religion that talks about holy war and shit
2017-03-24 08:55
christianity also talks about holy war and the kingdom of god on earth when everyone has been converted but nt

everyone been converted if you really wanna know people gonna kill christians in the future dont accept the number of the beast with that number you can pay your groceries and shit like that christians will just die but before that real christians will go to heaven with jesus or something nothing about holy war lmao
2017-03-24 14:05 Here is recorded the final defeat of the kingdoms of man (Ps. Ps. 2:1-2; Dan. Dan. 2:34-35, Dan. 2:44-45; Rev. Rev. 1:5+; Rev. 19:15-21+), the ushering in of the Millennial Kingdom on earth (Rev. Rev. 11:15+; Rev. Rev. 20:4+), the demise of the kingdom of Satan (Rev. Rev. 20:2+, Rev. 20:10+), and the permanent dwelling of the King among His subjects (Rev. Rev. 21:3+; Rev. 22:3+). i know it doesnt explicitly say that god will come down from heaven once all the non christians are dead, but crazy people have interpreted it that way, just like they interpret the quran that way. religion is just such a great excuse for crazy people to murder other people.
2017-03-25 09:04
Netherlands Therealtydaa 
yh they talk about the kingdom of god once the end of time (eind tijd) there will be peace for 1000 years and after that god will release the devil again because there are people born that never have chosen like people have to do now. Thats why there is free will but so far as i know there is nothing about christians going to war against non christians and the crusades are not in the bible. thats when catholics used christians.
2017-03-25 11:14
people used these passages i linked to justify genocide idk what version of history you were taught in school but it seems you gotta read up on the time period between christianity becoming the roman state religion and the enlightenment.

Well not my fault people generalize catholics with christians lmao catholics added shit as holy maria and the pope

2017-03-21 12:38
who won the election? wilders didnt, so he lost
2017-03-16 08:35
wilders 'won' in the sense that he got more seats, no party actually won because none of them got 76 or more seats.
2017-03-16 08:39
So if no one wins? Who runs the country? If the goal of the election is to elect a new leader, surely he who gets the most votes win?
2017-03-17 02:48
it looks like at least 4 parties will have to work together to have a majority in the house
2017-03-17 07:49
Its called a coalition.
2017-03-19 12:00
I know what a coalition is. I just find it funny that they somehow can't be labeled "winners"

2017-03-17 09:56
Liechtenstein dinomen 
How u know that they got less crime? Lool just go inform urself first then worry about yr shithole country and then come talk. And no I don't feel good for any kind of crime, I just said the reality, which Russia has a big population of muslims, I like this how people say rape to things that are no rape, rape is violating someone, touching without permission, now everyone calls rape to shit like when u say to a girl in the street that ohh nice ass etc, if this is what u mean by rape, then Russia is the biggest rape country in the planet lool
2017-03-17 22:20
You are saying the Netherlands has more crime than Russia? You might want to verify your source on that. In fact, Russia even has more crime committed by "Muslims" per capita. So not even in that department are things better over there.

Good work, let the rape continue, and please give those who raped your wife and/or your daughter monthly welfare checks! The future is so promising for you all. Oh and, Happy Christmas too. please don't get ran over from reckless truck drivers or hurt from enhanced firecrackers :D

We will have the biggest party in this election 1 day later Won +6 seats in the parliament :) If the real politicians just start to listen to the people and make changes to laws of migrants and take in less migrants idiots like Trump and Wilders. People are voting on these asshats because they dont trust the government, not because they are good politicians and that is a real bad move.
2017-03-16 09:04
'good' politicians dont exist in NL, we have average ones and bad ones. last good politician we had got shot

Good politicians doesn't exist, period. But there is Politicians that are really trying without being populistic or edgy because that wins votes.
2017-03-16 09:08
well currently to me that the anti populist movement looks a lot like just another flavor of populism. lots of parties tried to get votes by not being the pvv, but most of them dont have a good plan to solve the immigration issue we face either on national or european level. they just talk about "shelter in the region" aka paying erdogan to commit crimes against humanity
2017-03-16 09:20
>last good politician we had got shot Who?
2017-03-17 06:41
pim fortuyn. he talked about the immigration problem before it was mainstream and without looking like a clown in the process. both geert wilders and donald trump are repeating things he said. he was shot in 2002. "Fortuyn provoked controversy with his outspoken views about multiculturalism, immigration and Islam in the Netherlands. He called Islam "a backward culture", and was quoted as saying that if it were legally possible, he would close the borders for Muslim immigrants." i dont necessarily agree with that solution or the opinion on muslims, but a lot of people did think there was a problem and back then he was the only person in dutch politics who wanted to talk about it. these days that opinion is more popular, nothing happened for 15 years and the problem got worse, now idiots like wilders are copying what he said but without understanding the danger of what theyre doing.
2017-03-17 08:01
Thank you. So, a politician who was talking about muslim immigration problem got killed before the election and... what was the outcome? I mean if you kill a politician in Russia, like every country in the world want to conduct their own investigation and implement sanctions, connect the situation with the government and so on.
2017-03-17 08:51 there was an investigation into his death, some extreme left nut job was convicted for the shooting, a lone wolf basically, but of course there are plenty conspiracy theories. basically, the party fell apart, we got balkenende as prime minister, did nothing about immigration and invaded iraq lol. some clowns like rita verdonk and geert wilders saw an opportunity there and have been getting votes because of it, but none of those people are fit to lead a country, they just want to stand by the sidelines and complain. the mainstream parties have adopted some of fortuyns views after his death, but not much has changed. we were too busy with terrorism and banking crises
2017-03-17 09:54
Well, politics is shit.
2017-03-17 14:24
democratic politics are a projection of the voting people. politicians can only be shit if shit people vote for them.

100% true, my friend:(
2017-03-17 20:14
>good >politician
2017-03-17 09:56
he was a good politician, doesnt mean he was a terrific guy, but he was good at that job, he was capable of talking about immigration without coming off as a racist idiot like wilders does.
2017-03-17 09:57
Do you really believe that smth as good politicians exist?
2017-03-17 10:26
good and bad imo are not absolutes, but relative. there are politicians who are worse than average, others are better than average.

And good for us, all hail the EU and fuck the populist new elite politicians. Populism has never worked and will never work, for real change to come the established parties needs to listen to their people and voters.
2017-03-16 09:07
1) They are the second largest party 2) Let's just pretend that all the non-native dutch people, including second and third generation immigrants weren't allowed to vote. The gab between the leading party and the freedom party would have been very narrow.
2017-03-16 09:09
And why shouldnt those people be allowed to vote?
2017-03-16 14:10
Getting a citizenship doesn't make you indigenous. Just because I move to China I don't become Chinese. Nor do my kids, and if Danish people made up 15% of the Chinese population, of course they would vote for a party that allowed more Danish people to enter. It's absurd to think otherwise, and it takes several generations, for anyone to cut their ties to their old country. There was a documentary made by a Lebanese person, about life in Denmark from the perspective of some muslim immigrants, and even the third generation kids said they were first and foremost Lebanese and then Danish.
2017-03-16 15:06
Sure, but if they were born in Denmark, anf intigrated into society, and they live in denmark, it means they have a right to have a say in who decides. Most of them are probably pro-immigration, but so what?
2017-03-16 15:14
Yes, but the term integrated is so watered down these day, any plonk is apparently integrated, as long as they don't commit any crimes. Doesn't matter if they worship Cthulhu, live in clay huts, don't speak the language and stick to themselves. Integration is miles away from assimilation which is what I'm talking about. We have way too many immigrants that just live here, but have no ties whatsoever to Denmark. They don't want to learn learn the language and be part of society. The satellite dish is only tuned into a middle-eastern TV network, they only listen to middle-eastern music, they talk their old language and look like they came straight from the desert more or less. Any assimilated immigrant - that means secular too by the way - is more than welcome, and I consider them part of society. Sadly they are are tiny minority within a minority.
2017-03-16 15:43
this is very true,elections in Croatia are always decided by people who live in Bosnia,Canada,Aus etc..and they live there 20+years but they are still allowed to vote.Not rly the same case but still..
2017-03-16 19:48
Any assimilated immigrant - that means secular too by the way whatever happened to freedom of religion you clown?
2017-03-17 10:05
Worshiping made up fantasy creatures belongs to the dark ages. If they want to pursue that lifestyle then there are plenty of countries in Africa and the middle-east where they'll fit right in. For instance the 13 countries that has the death penalty for apostasy to this very day. Clown.
2017-03-17 10:28
you didnt answer the question fucknugget. do you understand why european countries have freedom of religion? if not you might wanna read up on what happened here between the fall of the roman empire and the enlightenment. clown.
2017-03-17 11:02
Freedom of religion is a relic from the past, that allowed people here to actually change religion and also discard their religion. Before that it was mandatory to worship a specific god, instated by king king Christian the 5th you clown, and if that's your only argument then you are as pathetic as the clowns that cling on to the right to bear arms, just because some politicians conjured that brilliant idea up in 1789. Islam are only compatible with islam and has no place in our society. How thick can you be.
2017-03-17 13:18
islam has a place in our society just as much as "by fire and sword" christianity does. whether thats no place at all or all the place is personal opinion, but please look at the matter consistently and somewhat objectively. if your point is that the govt should ban religions, not just islam, i would refer you to russian history, specifically the chapter about stalin banning religion and the terrible loss that was. it cost the russian state a lot of good people and a lot of capital to remove orthodox christianity and they got nothing in return.
2017-03-17 18:18
No, in Danish society islam a cancer that is spreading and has to be stopped, before it contaminates more of society, and it only brings divide between new immigrants and Danes. Christianity is fortunately dying out here, and the vast majority of Danes are secular. They are only Christians by name, because no one worships the middle-eastern god more than they worship the Nordic, or the Slavic, or some Asian gods. Which the absolutely neither do. I'm not advocating a ban on religion, because slowly it has been dying out more and more, and religion was not a source of problems in Denmark. That is, until islam showed its face. I'm advocating a ban on islam in Danish society, because islam is only compatible with islam.
2017-03-18 08:40
religion was not a source of problems in Denmark. That is, until islam showed its face. really? you didnt have any trouble with christianity? here in NL a lot of people died because of religion before we had islam. i dont see what makes islam so special.
2017-03-18 15:05
Why do you think assimilation is necessary? I seriously doubt you would have this perspective if you had moved to any country for a significant amount of time yourself. Becoming conversational in the native language and following the laws and customs to a satisfactory degree = integrated. This does not require leaving your own culture and religion behind. Expecting secularism from immigrants is ludicrous given the majority of Europeans are still Christian and not ahteist/agnostic. Even if they were; religious freedom is a fundemental part of Western Society. Whether you like it or not, first Generation citizens and second generation immigrants are natives and should most certainly be allowed to vote given election results have a direct impact in their lives. I see no logical reason for you to have additional voter rights because your family tree has been longer on the soil you inhabit.
2017-03-21 12:40
In order to protect our culture. We are a small country with only 5.6 million people of which 330.000 are immigrants from non-western countries. We are not the US, and our country is not made up of people with all sorts of backgrounds. Christianity is dying in Denmark and thank all the gods for that. We want less religion to interfere with our lives and be a source of conflict, not more.

I'm calling you a fascist due to how you express yourself, and your views on refugees and migrants. It is fascism, why are you even denying it? That's how you want you country to be ran, so why not just embrace it? I'm basing whole Europe because of their response to the election in the netherlands. Something you would have known if you weren't ignorant, and read the blog. I'm in no way a SJW btw. Calling you for what you are is not being a SJW. You cringe at yourself btw? That's sad
2017-03-16 11:25
So refusing to waste my Tax money on people who clearly come to Europe to live off benefits is being fascist? Being fascist means that You believe your nation/race whatever is the best and everyone else is a subhuman. I never said I am better than anyone cuz i'm white/polish. They are more than welcome to come if they work and contribute to society, however looking at the statistics, that's not the fucking case. Over 70% despite living in Europe for over 5 years never even attempted to look for a job. Look up the stats from Switzerland. You are basically an idiot that goes around and fights for refugee rights while in the same time u did fuck all to help even one of them. Top class hypocrisy there. I'm sure I said that to you before, if u want to help them out. Take it to your home and pay for them, feed them etc. But keep your dirty commie hands away from my, and everyone else's tax money.

I've had the honor of working with refugees and immigrants coming from syria, afghanistan, iraq etc, and trust me, the vast majority does NOT want to live off a welfare check. It is pretty known that Norway has one of the best welfare systems in the world. In norway, refugees will get 11000 NOK per month, before taxes. That's almost nothing. Trust me, there's nothing in this world these people want more than to get a job. The problem is that the job market won't accept them. If you put in an interview, your chances of getting rejected will increase by 100% if your name is abdullah/mohammed/etc, or if your skin is brown. The problem isn't their unwillingness to work, its the employers not willing to hire them, except for shit tier jobs like cleaning toilets.
2017-03-16 11:54
Everyone has to start somewhere. Poles coming to UK get shit treatment also, but they still work. Cleaning toilets, warehouses, factories etc. They get a grip and work, so dont give me this bullshit. I don't care who u were working with I am basing my opinion on statistics, and those are clearly against refugees.

"i worked with refugees" boo hoo. are you suggesting that's special? that's surely a racist comment. how many refugees did you house personally in your own home? how much money did you spend from your own pocket helping refugees excluding taxes? why are you even mentioning afghanistan or iraq when literally millions are dying in africa in countries like somalia and sudan from famine and epidemics? where is the justice in you enjoying all the benefits in your life including "one of the best welfare systems in the world" while people die and suffer simply based on the place they were born in? why are you theorycrafting about the humanist approach to refugees on a cs forum instead of actively contributing yourself to that idea?

It was in no way trying to make me look special, it was to legitimize the claim I made, if you actually read the whole comment. The countries I mentioned was because I was only working with people from the countries Norway has military personnel in. I have never housed any refugees in my home, the only thing I do is donate every christmas. And I'm completely aware that people are dying in other countries, I fail to see how that makes me a bad person though. Same with our welfare system. Maybe you should check how many billions norway donates to suffering countries. Where do you think this money comes from? Oh right, taxes. Your comment makes aboslutely no sense, and it only seems like you are desperately trying to paint me as an evil person enjoying people dying. You're looking more like a crazy person than anything
2017-03-17 17:50
im simply pointing out your hypocrisy. for someone preaching tolerance so fanatically and mocking the expected and arguably reasonable reaction to this whole refugee phenomenon that nowadays for some reason considered "populist", you didn't contribute yourself a whole lot. but this is not about real concern or ideology, is it? apart from built in features such as taxes or the custom of donating on christmas, which btw a shitload of other people do besides you, you haven't done jack shit to personally help any of those people. this self righteous crusade of yours on hltv has no underpinning whatsoever. you undeniably have the means to save dozens of people if saving people is really what you were concerned about or at the very least provide a shelter for a lucky few. and im not talking theory here. but you don't do that. when it concerns your standard of living this would be a no - no, wouldn't it? what about the standards of living of those whose neighborhoods turned into refugee ghettos? what about those who fail to get a job or buy a place of living as a consequence? what about those who simply feel solidarity with fellow countrymen who have to deal with those issues? all of those are surely facist xenophobic bigots.

Fascist is the most overused word, but words like cuck, SJW, libtard etc isn't? As soon as someone voices there opinion against the racist far right-winged populist parties in europe, edgy teenagers on the internet will start running their fingers on the keyboard with these outdated insults. Again, I'm not basing him being a fascist on one single comment. It's all of his expressions over many months. And if you want to call me out for being a complete and utter retarded SJW moron, then maybe you should come up with some more original insults yourself.

We dont have democracy, it does not exist, it never has, it never will. If you would ever think that the people with power, would ever, i mean ever, share their power, or even let us, the peasants vote on how much power they would have or which one of them that would have it, you are naive my friend. It does not matter if it is left, right or in between. I dont know how i should react when i see people fighting over Trump or Hillary, Geert Wilders or Mark Rutte etc. Politicians are just actors, we are not allowed to see behind the curtain. They are all the same, corrupt, greedy, lying, bastards. Guess who they mimic, US! the peasants. The closer they are to the people, the more we put our trust in them. I dont know how people have not figured this out yet, but then again, the average human is not that smart after all :)

2017-03-16 15:47
first of all, why would you say "Europe says...", it was an election in one of the smallest countries in europe. also i wouldnt quite call it a "NO" but rather a "maybe" because Geert Wilders' party is still the second most popular in the Netherlands and sure, lets just ignore the fact that one of the most important allies parted ways with EU and that the french elections gonna take place in a month and if Le Pen manages to win she is also gonna try to exit the EU. Seriously, how much of a bigheaded cunt can you be to not realise that the EU is a sinking ship and that the refugee crisis and the Left is pushing the people to vote for Le Pen, Brexit, Trump etc.
2017-03-16 14:31
How can u understand that there is no refugee crisis in most of Europe? Only Germany took a lot of them. France accepted only 20k (over 66millions inhabitants) for example. Le Pen supporters are absolutely not voting for her coz of refugees. But when u look US media u can't expect to understand Europe. They can't even pin a city on a map.

The man nicknamed "Jessiah" preaches a different brand of populism: "We are the opposite of Wilders, he is hate and we are love," he told me while being swamped by a sea of selfie-snapping schoolgirls." *facepalm* Geert will rise again...

Elections are not a talent show but a popularity contest. If you say no to populism, you say no to elections basically. Your title is misleading even though your content indicates the type of populism. At the end of the day, both Rutte and Wilders are smiling because one gained the teacher's chair while the other got the seats in the classroom.
2017-03-17 09:11
Please explain why geerts party are populists. populism noun -support for the concerns of ordinary people. -the quality of appealing to or being aimed at ordinary people. most ordinary people are not racists. most muslims are ordinary people. Why are people saying they are preaching populism when they clearly are not?

Polish people are actually great at integrating. While a lot of the older working-class generation might look down on them for "taking their jobs", they have integrated really well, bought real-estate and learned the language fluently. Polish immigrants are some of the best foreigners we have in the work force, they rarely move back. It seems like they have a lot of trouble with integration in Norway though.
2017-03-21 12:44
Funny how the caps come out when it is turned around on you. Immigrant Poles have among the largest unemployment rates in the nordic countries. Why aren't those lazy bastards willing to work on improving the living conditions in Poland but instead flee to have better lives in other European countries? This is the exact same bullshit thrown against "refugees". At least be concistent in your beliefs.

What utter bollocks. Wilders's party is the 2nd largest in Holland, and the governing party is a right-wing party anyways. He gained 5 seats as well, meaning that what you should take out of this isn't about some glorious defeat of the disgusting alt-right scum but real people making a desperate decision to vote for Wilders based on real issues in Europe right now aka mass Islamic immigration, and that if people have to vote for the most right-wing candidate there is because they feel there's no other issue then the problems in Europe and Holland must be concerning to a fairly large extent. long story short, you've totally missed the point.

He's a moron because he doesn't realise that as you said, the right is gaining more and more popularity in Europe because of issues like the refugee crisis and Wilders gained seats. He doesn't actually want to answer the question so he beats around the bush celebrating a pedantic 'victory against populism' when the reality of the matter is that firstly, a right-wing party won the election anyways WHO WAS ALSO a populist, secondly that more people voted Wilders because of the horribly managed migrant crisis across Europe causing unprecedented problems which people have clearly seen. The fact that they voted for Wilders shows that, but instead this guy likes to argue semantics and focus on the most insignificant of details. Such a moron.
