Just when you think things can’t get any worse, someone or something always manages to make a point and test your patience. Successfully, of course. Today is such day. I am referring to The Netherlands in general and some right-wing racist Dip-Shit De Luxe in particular. His name is Martin Bosma, and he is a member of the right-wing PVV party (Freedom Party).
“It is a pity that The Dutch Left once helped the ANC to gain control over South Africa,” he was quoted by Het Parool (a newspaper which, thank Who Ever, is not right-wing).
First of all, I have to stress that The Netherlands did not do a great deal to free South Africa from the shackles of Apartheid. Yes, there were some demonstrations, boycotts and sanctions but that is about it, really. A guy with at least two university degrees and someone who is considered the party’s intellectual, should know that. Anyway.
What pisses me off beyond belief is Bosma’s warm and fuzzy feeling for “South Africa’s good old days” and the fact that people like him are tolerated within the ranks of government. Bosma, a former journalist (who has worked at CNN and other channels apparently), sits in the Dutch House of Representatives – so he is quite “Up There”. Did I mention he once called Hitler a socialist? Hm?
Bosma’s ridiculous statements are the cherry on top of what is going on in The Netherlands with regards to Mauro Manuel, an 18-year old Angolan boy who arrived in The Netherlands nearly 9 years ago. Now some dip-shits that call themselves politicians – including those on the PVV side – want to send this young man back “home”.
But what is home to this young man? After all, he left Angola when he was just ten years old. Angola, back then was a completely different country from now. When Mauro was put on a plane by his mother (he still does not know why she did that) the Civil war had just come to an end. Angola was in ruins after 26 years of warfare and far from pleasant for a young child (Read more about Mauro in my previous blog post. And while you do so, please sign this “Mauro has got to stay petition“. Over 50.000 people have signed so far! ).
Needless to say that I am rather pissed off with the situation in my country of birth at the moment. Oh yes, in my anger I have shed a few angry tears over the past few days! I am fire-spitting mad! This is not the country my late grand father and so many others fought for so goddamn hard! My beloved granddad would be twisting and turning in his grave if were aware of what is going in The Netherlands! (and with him, thousands of others).
In the meantime, I am contemplating auctioning off my passport on eBay if things are not improving.
