This 14 December Dutch regional TV video is about Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch xenophobic and Islamophobic PVV party, presenting the new local party leader and number one candidate for the Rotterdam municipal elections on 18 March 2018. Opponents of Wilders were present as well.
That new local leader is ex-soldier, now unemployed, Géza Hegedüs, of Hungarian ancestry.
Mr Hegedüs turns out to be an activist in the Dutch self-styled ‘alt-right‘ neonazi Erkenbrand organisation (called after a Lord of the Rings fictional character). He also supports neonazi Holocaust denier David Irving. And he hates Africans. See also here.
Initially, Geert Wilders said that the PVV was ‘only’ against Islam, supposedly not anti-Semitic or otherwise racist. So, he then said he did not want collaboration with neofascist parties like Vlaams Belang in Belgium or National Front in France.
In November 2013 however, Wilders dropped his previous objections to these Belgian and French racists. The Nederlandse Volksunie (NVU), Dutch open Adolf Hitler supporters, applauded this new cooperation between Marine Le Pen and Wilders.
In August 2014, Wilders declared his intention to march against immigrants in the Hague jointly with the NVU and other neofascists.
These negotiations failed. A problem then was that Jobbik are very open about their support for the Adolf Hitler age and anti-Semitism. While these are officially absent in Wilders’ PVV. They are also ‘officially’ absent in Le Pen’s National Front and Vlaams Belang; though, less officially, they come to the surface again and again, both in the National Front and in Vlaams Belang.
In July 2017, Wilders demonstrated together with the Nederlandse Volksunie against a Dutch Moroccan becoming mayor of Arnhem.
Now, Wilders and his new local pointman Hegedüs are planning a xenophobic demonstration in Rotterdam on 20 January 2018. The Nederlandse Volksunie on its Facebook page calls on its supporters to join that demonstration.
Who is Wilders’ Rotterdam ‘hero’ Hegedüs?
Dutch investigators of the extreme right Kafka write about him today (translated):
Hegedüs explains during the conversation that he got to know the alt-right through Red Ice. According to him there are all sorts of differences within alt-right, but he finds that refreshing. Fortunately, according to Hegedüs, there is also a binding factor within alt-right. According to him, that is “the survival of the white race, so to speak.” David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan “also has interesting things to tell” he says. Hegedüs complains about the allegedly dominant influence of the concept of diversity in society. “Of course you are banned from doubting the ethnic diversity ideal in the first place” according to the intended PVV party local leader. “Where it goes wrong” he grumbles, “is the principle of equality.” Therefore he rejects feminism “totally” and he no longer conducts discussions with people who deny “racial biological aspects”. …
The Jobbik party soon comes up for discussion in the conservation and the two participants let themselves be known as outspoken anti-Semites and Roma haters. “The gypsy problem was discussed by Jobbik. That was very strong”, Hegedüs says with satisfaction. But he also has concerns about the development of this party. “Judgments about Jews have disappeared altogether” and “statements about gypsies are increasingly going to the background”, Hegedüs notes. He suspects, however, that this is a strategy to attract moderate voters. “If that is true” says Hegedüs, then it is “a very good strategic move.” Szaloki confirms the analysis of Hegedüs. “The skinheads in bomber jackets have disappeared from the streets in Hungary. Now it’s people in suits.”…
With the civil war in Western Europe to be expected according to Hegedüs, Eastern Europeans must come to the rescue.
UPDATE, 15 December 2017, 15:23: Wilders had to sack Hegedüs after one day after this information and has to search for another Rotterdam leader.
UPDATE, 19 February 2019: Rotterdam’s only PVV local councillor quarrels with his aides.
