Do the Dutch finally get it?

– Wiccapundit

Just a day before the stunning acquittal of Geert Wilders in The Netherlands on charges of defamation of Islam, it seems that Dutch politicians finally figured out what anyone with half a brain can see:  allowing foreign cultures to flourish in your country and allowing followers of those cultures to opt out of participating in that country’s shared culture (and obeying its laws) is a recipe for disaster.

Netherlands abandoning multiculturalism

The article notes that a new integration bill will BAN the wearing of face-covering burqas as of January 1, 2013.   The government will also end subsidies to Muslim immigrants and will outlaw forced marriages.

‘Bout damn time.

If the Dutch are finally getting a clue, what are the odds that reason will see the light in this country?  We can only hope.

    Maybe sanity will begin to return to the civilized world…

  2. Though I applaud the Dutch, I fear it may be too late. The Norge came out and said all rapes that were solved crimes in Norway were committed by muslims. And they are still not waking up to what the Dutch have risen up to do.

    Here, here! Thanks for bringing attention to this decision by the Dutch. I am not certain that the U.S. will get it. It seems our country is too caught up in bending over backward to be nice to the wrong people. I do share your hope, though!

    Also, RSW, this is a bit off the subject, but I am from Minnesota, home of the famous government shut-down. Our illustrious airhead governor chose to shut down state parks this weekend (which would not have needed to be shut down) just so he can try and get folks to blame the GOP. At a time when regular people are living through very hard times and might have set aside a little something to take their families camping this weekend, this adult rich-kid governor takes that away from them.

    Also, I had to remove AdSense from my blog completely today since the ads were full of blame on the GOP for “causing” the shut-down. My blog is about my life and my art; though I am a politically-conservative pagan, there is no political slant to my blog, and yet those ads appeared, and they were in favor of the wrong side. Thanks for listening — just had to vent. MN politics = stupid.

      Yep. Every time there’s a budget shortfall, the local pols fret that they’ll have to cut back on police, fire and EMT first, rather than the stupid shit like building an outdoor ice skating rink – in the South.
