The Coming Crisis in the Netherlands

The Dutch government, like El Inglés, looks ahead and sees a very real possibility of massive ethnic violence in the Netherlands’ future.

So what’s the official response? To worry about the flu instead.

According to NIS News Bulletin:

Cabinet: Ethnic Violence Most Real Threat

OstrichThe chances of large-scale ethnic violence breaking out in the Netherlands are greater than those of a big flu epidemic. But the government nonetheless sees such a flu pandemic as a much greater risk for Dutch society.

“The outbreak of a flu pandemic forms one of the greatest risks for Dutch society. A pandemic outbreak is ‘likely’ and the consequences will be enormous. An oil crisis is also a great risk to national security,” according to a cabinet statement.

Thirdly, the cabinet warns of great flooding from the sea. This is “very unlikely” due to the protection via dunes, dikes and other water damming. But if such a really huge flooding should occur, the consequences are rated in the ‘catastrophic’ category.

In these three scenarios, Dutch society would be seriously disrupted. “Thus, there could be (many) fatalities, great economic damage, serious disruption of daily living and fear or anger among the population.”

So if ethnic violence is more likely, why not worry about it? Because the consequences won’t be very serious:
- - - - - - - - -
The chances of “other threats to national security are slightly or much greater” than the chances of a flu pandemic, oil crisis or big flooding. But “the consequences are smaller” and therefore the cabinet did not wish to emphasise them. As examples here, the cabinet did name “a fierce heat wave with extreme drought, national stoppages of electricity supplies or riots by left or right-wing extremists.”

Such ethnic riots are ‘likely,’ but “depending on the circumstances, the consequences are limited to serious.” Society would not be seriously disrupted, the government predicts.

I wonder if the average “person of Dutch background”, consulted on the streets of Amsterdam or Rotterdam, would agree.

When anti-immigration sentiment finally boils over and explodes, will the results really be less serious than an influenza outbreak?

I’ll let our readers decide.


Hat tip: TB.

Race war in Europe is a given. We all know that. The European power elites have engineered the ethnic cleansing of European nations and the ongoing consolidation of power to themselves and their non-white clients. That this somehow did NOT lead to civil war, would be remarkable.

In the event of race war, flu pandemic, or flooding, Europeans will have a chance to target the power elites, remove them from power, and take back the seat of government. In chaos, there is opportunity.

It could be right, given that society means the core of power and nothing else. These fellows are "quite safe from the insignificant little rebellions" like emperor said in star wars. Heck, they have all the new and "fully armed and operational battlestations" all over just waiting a command.

In a case of serious civil unrest, all the people are subjected equally to these arms and forces. Core of power would NOT make any difference between native or 'person with a foreign background' when they start marching. So, the average joe in europe would be between the rock and the hard place, because he'd have to fight against 'persons with..blahblah' AND against the main powerforces at the same time.

If I'd be a machiavellian amateur student, I'd say that this would look like an orchestrated endeavour.

Don't worry, though. The Dutch government is doing everything in its power to set the stage for mass violence between muslims and native Dutch who aren't going to put up with dhimmification and islamization any longer.

Does anyone else get from the foregoing a sense of, "If we ignore this it will go away"?

What dangerous, frightening, irresponsible, and ultimately self-defeating wishful thinking. These liberals can't face the facts without undermining their world view - so they bury their heads in the sand and try to convince themselves that their arses are safe.

If they are setting up a civil war, why are they doing it? To help Muslims ("if the people won't do what you want, replace them"), or to justify Soviet-style repressive government (which, as socialists, they've always had an admiration for)?

Both.
