Message in white paint in the window reads “PVV voters not welcome”.
Photograph taken in Amsterdam (NL) today. The shop in question is a skate shop, the proprietor of which maintains his message ‘is more of a symbolic message’.
And just who is responsible for the creepy, heartless atmosphere in Holland again?
[UPDATE001] And via GeenStijl (NL): The Centre for Visual Arts Gelderland, in Arnhem, will refuse the work of PVV-voting artists (NL) and called on its members to break all ties ‘business and private’ with painters and sculptors supporting the PVV.
The Centre, a government agency selling and lending out works of art by contemporary artists, evidently has declared the art by PVV-voters Entartete Kunst (yes, I can wield a Godwin with the best of ’em!). Its director, a wet blanket by the name of Ingrid Rep thinks the PVV is ‘such a threat to society’, that a line must be drawn. She’s also member of the anti-Geert Wilders hyves set up by a number of high-ranking civil servants with delusions of grandeur (and/or competence), who consider themselves ‘conscientious objectors’.
Where Ms. Rep and her ilk come off thinking they has the right to selectively apply the law, I don’t know. Discrimination based on political preference is as much illegal as is racial discrimination. Hence, this action would seem grounds for dismissal, which means the self-solving problem is beginning to solve itself.
