This is a poster from the Netherlands about the cooperation in the present European election campaign between Dutch xenophobic politician Geert Wilders and his extreme Right Austrian colleague Christian Strache, leader of the FPÖ party.
On the left in the poster, Strache is quoted: “Homosexuality is a disease!“.
On the right of the poster, Geert Wilders says: “What a really impressive man!“.
The caption at the bottom of the poster says: “Today, Wilders is in bed with all kinds of extreme Right parties which are full of racists, holocaust deniers and LGBTQ haters“.
Finally, the poster refers to the site WildersBFF.nl, about who Wilders’ ‘Best Friends Forever‘ are.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:
The Jewish interests’ organisation CIDI
CIDI is an acronym for Center for Information and Documentation on Israel. One should call it a ‘pro-Israel’ organisation rather than a ‘Jewish’ organisation, there being both Jews and non-Jews in it.
criticizes PVV leader Geert Wilders. In daily De Telegraaf, the organization says that Wilders ‘betrays his principles’ by working with extreme right-wing parties in Europe such as the French Front National [National Front].
CIDI director Esther Voet calls it disturbing that Wilders reversed himself ‘like a leaf on a tree’. ‘He always said he would not join forces with the extreme right, but now that happens anyway. It’s a sliding scale.’
Wilders has a reputation of someone caring for the interests of the Jewish community. He has good contacts with Jewish lobby groups in the United States and has traveled dozens of times to Israel.
Former PVV MPs Wim Kortenoeven and Louis Bontes confirm to the newspaper that Wilders has changed his position. Previously, PVV MPs were not even allowed to be on the same photo as members of the National Front, said Bontes. “That was said to bring the PVV into disrepute.”
Wilders told De Telegraaf that he is “not afraid” of being perceived to be similar to the extreme right.
Already in November CIDI said it is concerned about the cooperation between the PVV and the National Front. According to Ms Voet that has major implications for Jews in the Netherlands. “The risk is that there will be a larger group in the European Parliament, for example, rejecting ritual [kosher] slaughter. And also against circumcision, attacking the core of Judaism.”

So Nigel Farage rejects an alliance with Wilders PVV party. What’s worrying me is that Wilders thought it was worth asking in the first place. With elections due here very soon what will be the effect of voting for UKIP, What don’t the people know about UKIP and some of it’s founder members?
At the European elections in Britain, there is also the No2EU coalition of various parties and groups.
Critics of the European Union, but also of UKIP etc. xenophobia:
