The Netherlands is finally saying NO to the Double-Dutch standard of multiculturalism. After a 30-plus year experiment with nonsensical political policies that promoted parallel societies within its borders, one a modernized Western culture and the other a pre-Medieval caliphate, the Dutch government is now instituting measures to put an end to the suicidal Muslim mollification programs of the past.
Dutch Interior Minister, Piet Hein Donner submitted the government’s new immigrant integration bill to parliament on June 16th stating:
The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society
A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands. The integration will not be tailored to different groups.

Specific changes to Dutch immigration policies will include: banning the burqa beginning in January 2013; outlawing forced marriages among Muslim immigrants; requiring immigrants to learn the Dutch language; discontinuing special financial subsidies to Muslim immigrants; imposing measures against Muslims who lower their chances of gaining employment due to the way they dress; and overall, instituting a tougher stance on immigrants who disobey Dutch laws and ignore Dutch values.
The polls show that 74% of Dutch voters believe immigrants should conform to Dutch values and 83% support banning the burqa in public places.
So why such an about-face for the citizens of Holland? Why the dramatic end to their highly coveted multicultural love fest? Perhaps it was the assassination of Dutch politician, Pim Fortuyn, for his views on Muslim immigration. Or perhaps it might have been the murder of Dutch film maker, Theo Van Gogh, for daring to produce a movie criticizing Islam. Or perhaps it was the significant rise in acts of immigrant violence and other various crimes that caught the eye of the ordinary Dutch voter. Or maybe it could have been the report from the Dutch intelligence service showing that Holland is home sweet home to over 50,000 radical Muslims, Muslims with extreme anti-Western views all bent on destroying the very nice people who offered them a better place to live compared to the stinking sink holes they hailed from.
Oh, the way of the world is so very hard for our supercilious liberals to fathom and they just never seem to learn life’s basic lessons. They fall all over themselves to posture their diversity deference to People of Color, turning the Third World into an exotic menagerie of progressive pets. But oh dear, those innocent child-like 21st century misfits seem to have the bad habit of always biting that helping hand of liberal condescension. So once again, just like in the Netherlands, it’s back to Remedial Reality 101.
