From the Gates of Vienna:
Our Flemish correspondent VH reports on the latest scandal from the Netherlands: Geert Wilders called a socialist Muslim politician a “super dumb goose”. The horror!
Here’s the report fromÂ De Telegraaf, as translated by VH:
Geert Wilders: “Fatima Elatik is super dumb goose”
Geert Wilders made mincemeat of the Amsterdam PvdA district mayorFatima Elatik [theÂ appointed leader of the Amsterdam district council of Zeeburg, and a fellow party member and fan of the Muslim Brotherhood supporter Ahmed Marcouch], who compared the politics of the PVV member with those of Adolf Hitler. “What a super dumb goose she is,” Wilders replied yesterday.
The Moroccan-Dutch Elatik has worked herself into a lather over the questions in Parliament of the PVV, which wants to know how the Muslim population will develop in the Netherlands over the coming decades. “Just give it a while and they will analyze our DNA to show that we are no good”, Elatik twittered. “I think there was once another politician in Europe, some 60 years ago, who did the same thing to another Semitic people.”
In response, Wilders fought back with: “The demonization by the Labor Party (PvdA) keeps going on. I hope they realize where this may lead.”

Soon she realized that as a politician â€” and particularly one of a party that is on the verge of collapsing, like the PvdA (Socialists) â€” she really cannot say such things. But she still quickly adds a clincher to it: “that we sometimes forget that Hitler was also democratically elected”. Who “we” are and what Elatik wants to say with this is not quite clear …
