Dutch election: Erdogan won three seats in Dutch parliament
So this election the Dutch party DENK got three seats in the house of representatives. This is a long read but I urge you to do so anyway, it’ll be fun, pinky promise.
People have been saying for a long time when there are more and more migrants, they would just create political parties to democratically force the hand our societies. So let’s look at this party and it’s agenda.
How did it start:
The party was created in 2015 after two Turks were kicked from their former party (PVDA) after a controversial fight. They were unable to accept that the fraction-leader had criticized Turkish organizations. The two allegedly had ties to those organizations, one which had direct ties to the government of Turkey and Erdogan’s party.
- Öztürk (one of the founders) yelled at a PVDA colleague “May Allah punish you!” during an argument.
- Sylvana Simons left the party because she was not allowed to handle topics like gay rights and women’s rights, she claims it “did not sit well with the parties supporters”
- Dutch media reported last month that DENK used fake social media accounts to form public opinion
Here are some specific points:
- Knowledge of labour migration has to be a core goal of the education system.
- Do away with the concept of ‘integration’, replace with ‘accepting [foreigners]’.
- Abolish the term ‘migrant’.
- Make an official register of ‘racist remarks’, all who end up on the list are banned from state/government employment.
- Teachers must represent the diversity in classrooms (migrant areas would see students only taught by migrant teachers, yay integration!)
- New languages need to be mandatory in schools: Chinese, Arabic, Turkish.
- Government must invest in ‘persuading’ people to become imams, but can not intervene in the actual curriculum of the imam-course (because that’s for Erdogan :3)
- More imams, for schools, healthcare, prisons and army staff.
- Radical Islam must be dealt with by dealing with the ‘causes’ (gibmedats, injustice, social ‘exclusion’).
- Government must acknowledge and support Palestine.
- Armenian genocide should not be recognized as a genocide.
