Is NL losing it?

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Just two clips that I saw in the past days make me wonder if NL is losing its openness and tolerance; the first one shows some ‘town-guards’ taking down a man who rode his bicycle in the wrong direction (or on the pavement or so)…my mouth fell open, I am astonished!

The second clip is taken at a gathering of the radical Islamic fringe group Sharia4Holland (a strange name since Holland is *not* the name of the country ‘The Netherlands’!)…don’t misunderstand me, I am all for freedom of speech, but I do have a ‘problem’ when it is being used by people who don’t respect the freedom of speech for others than themselves, who are even  threatening them and insulting the dutch people in general. The crazy thing in this clip is that when someone wants to intervene, trying to stop the verbal harassments, HE is the one being removed by police with force…for doing virtually nothing…ridiculous!! (about 4m30s in the clip below)
