Dutch PM Rutte beats Geert Wilders in Netherlands election
Maybe now people will finally realize what the real problem is?
You can’t blame the heebs for this one. This is what the sizable majority of white assholes in the Netherlands want.
The Netherlands is nearly 80% white, with a white voter demographic that’s even higher than that.
And what do they do?
Not only do they reinstate the beta-cuck Rutte, but they voted in HUGE numbers for the leftwing (Marxist) environmentalists of the so called “GreenLeft.” Making them the big winners of the night, quadrupling their number of MPs to 16.
The Guardian – Prime minister Mark Rutte and his liberal VVD party appear to have comfortably beaten the populist, anti-Islam Freedom party of Geert Wilders to become the largest in the new Dutch parliament, an early exit poll suggested.
In the first of three key European votes this year in which populist parties are seeking electoral breakthroughs, the VVD lost ten seats but was still on course for 31 seats in the 150-seat parliament, the Ipsos poll for Dutch broadcasters predicted.
Three other parties – the centre-right Christian Democrats (CDA), liberal-progressive D66 and Wilders’ PVV – were forecast to gain between four and seven seats each, all finishing with 19 MPs each.
The leftwing environmentalists of GreenLeft were set to be the big winners of the night, quadrupling their number of MPs to 16, the poll suggested, but the social democratic PvdA, Rutte’s outgoing coalition partners, appeared to have slumped to a historic low of nine seats from 38 in the current parliament.
The Independent – The main exit poll in the Netherlands suggests that Prime Minister Mark Rutte has won the Dutch elections, easily beating anti-Islam firebrand Geert Wilders.
For the two-time prime minister Mr Rutte, the poll indicated that an economic recovery and his hard-line handling of a diplomatic dispute with Turkey over the past week has won him support.
The Ipsos polling company gave Mr Rutte’s party 31 of the 150 seats in the lower house of parliament, compared to 19 seats for 3 other parties, including that of Mr Wilders. A second exit poll also showed the Prime Minister’s party had the largest share after 82 per cent of voters turned out.
For Mr Wilders, the poll was a test whether his fiery nationalist rhetoric caught the imagination of the population. Even if he increased his total in the 150-seat legislature from 15 to 19, it is was a disappointment since he was seeking to become the biggest party. Weeks or months of coalition talks are expected to follow.
“Rutte has not seen the back of me!!” Mr Wilders said in a Twitter reaction.
With France and Germany facing elections in the months ahead, Mr Rutte hoped to slow the momentum of what he called the “wrong sort of populism” after last’s year British vote to leave the European Union and the election of US President Donald Trump.
“This is a chance for a big democracy like the Netherlands to make a point to stop this toppling over of the domino stones of the wrong sort of populism,” Mr Rutte said after voting.
Germany’s foreign office was quick to react on Twitter. It said: “Large majority of Dutch voters have rejected anti European populists. That’s good news. We need you for a strong #Europe!”
Mr Wilders had insisted that whatever the result of Wednesday’s election, the kind of populist politics he and others in Europe represent are not going away.
“The genie will not go back into the bottle. People feel misrepresented,” he said, predicting the feeling would surface in the French and Germany elections. But the first indications were still bad.
The Dutch Labor Party of eurogroup chairman Jeroen Dijsselbloem has been punished by voters in parliamentary elections, plunging from 38 seats at the last election to just nine.
The left-leaning party appeared to be hammered by its supporters for its role over the last four years in pushing through a tough austerity package as junior member in a two-party Cabinet with the right-wing VVD party of Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
Labor Party junior Cabinet minister Sharon Dijksma called the defeat “an enormous slap for us all and I think that all social democrats this evening have a scratch on their soul.”
Mr Rutte had framed the election as a choice between continuity and chaos, portraying himself as a safe custodian of the nation’s economic recovery and casting Mr Wilders as a far-right radical who was unprepared to make tough decisions.
The chance of Mr Wilders becoming prime minister in the Netherlands, where a proportional representation voting system all but guarantees coalition governments, was remote, even if his party had placed first in the election.
All mainstream parties, including Mr Rutte’s VVD, had ruled out working with Mr Wilders and his Party for Freedom.
Mr Wilders’ one-page election manifesto included pledges to close borders to immigrants from Muslim nations, shutter mosques and ban the Koran, as well as to take the Netherlands out of the European Union.
