Rock band depicts Wilders, Breivik, Hitler

In the late 1970s, in Paradiso concert hall in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, there was the first Dutch Rock Against Racism concert.

Among the bands playing were English punk rockers Crass, Dutch punk rockers Ivy Green, and Dutch “normal” rockers Normaal (Normaal sing in eastern Dutch Achterhoek region dialect. Crass said they did not really like Normaal’s “mainstream” music style, but these are other issues).

Recently, Normaal became somewhat similar to Madonna. Not in musical style, but in poking pictorial fun at extreme right politicians. Madonna in her show depicted French neo-fascist xenophobic National Front leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead.

Hitler, Wilders and Breivik, as depicted by Normaal

Today, Dutch NOS TV reported about Normaal and xenophobic politicians (my translation):

PVV leader Geert Wilders is angry about a painting which rock band Normaal wants to use during a tour. He is, together with Adolf Hitler and Anders Breivik, on a canvas by singer Bennie Jolink. In the background graves and a swastika can be seen.

The painting is a backdrop for a tour about a new album by Normaal. For each song, Jolink together with a woman artist

That artist is Petra Verboeket.

has made a painting. In one of the songs Wilders is criticized.
