Rutte sounding like Wilders

‘Integrate or Leave’

Just one day after polls which gave Geert Wilders’s insurgent populist party a nine-point lead on the ruling conservatives, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has drifted again politically closer to the rival he last week ruled out a coalition with.

Borrowing heavily from rhetoric commonly employed by Mr. Wilders, Prime Minister Rutte took out a full page advert and spoke in an interview with Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad to tell migrants they should integrate or leave, and to issue a call for a return to “common decency”. 

He wrote:

“I tell everyone. If you don’t like it here in this country, get out, get out! That’s the choice you have. If you live in a country where the ways of dealing with others annoys you, you have a choice, go away. You do not need to be here.”

Oh, birds of a feather.

Breitbart is a megaphone for all this stuff.

Notice Wilders' remarks about the African population explosion.

This is racial and cultural and also political lifeboat ethics on a very grand scale.

And it is a tune Pat Buchanan has been humming for some decades in the US.

Some will recall his favorable views of the book Camp of the Saints.

If this is really what they are about, expect support for policies intended either to diminish non-white fertility in Europe or Africa (or both) or to enhance white fertility in Europe.

It is noteworthy that, as this all unfolds, the leaders of these movements are less and less bothered with being labeled racists or with their advocacy itself being labeled hate speech.

Basically, more and more, they just shrug it off with a sort of "So what?"
