Who knows what might have happened to American liberties if Hillary Clinton had won the last election? Thankfully, we don’t have to find out.
Instead of violently protesting the fact that they didn’t get their way in a fair election, her supporters ought to thank God that they live in America. If they lived in one of the EU countries, that so many of them think is social paradise, they would not have the freedom to do what they are now doing. America has problems, but liberty is protected by a written Constitution. Donald Trump has sworn to make sure that all judges he appoints, over the next 4-8 years, are committed to it.
As long as the judges honor the Constitution our nation will remain free. In other nations, however, even those that claim to be America’s allies and style themselves “democracies”, people with opposing opinions are persecuted. The Netherlands, for example, is a country that many Americans believe offers levels of freedom equal to or greater than the United States. However, like many of the other so-called “democratic” European nations, the Dutch government does not fully honor the right to free speech. It has been persecuting dissent, and done things that Americans would consider outrageous.
Dutch politicians and bureaucrats do not believe they have done anything wrong. The Dutch police were trying to identify all people who vocally opposed the influx of Muslim refugees, and then coming to people’s doors to harass them. They went to people’s houses to warn people who “tweet a lot” and post opposition on social media. When confronted with this behavior, a Dutch National Police spokesman responded that the nation has ten intelligence units comprised of “digital detectives” who monitor social media. They are supposedly “looking for posts that go too far” with the definition of “too far” entirely up to whoever happens to control the police force at any particular time. When they identify a person who has posted an undesireable opinion, they locate that person and pay him a little “visit” to straighten him out. This is done, allegedly “to help citizens understand the effect that their posts and tweets can have.”
Incredible? Not really. Left-wing Nazism has been manifesting itself for many years. We’ve even seen minor stirrings of this nature during the Obama administration, when the IRS began persecuting conservatives. Obama’s IRS, however, was sharply rebuked. The establishment in Europe, in contrast, continues to perpetrate these actions without any consequences except much later, at the ballot box. The idea, apparently, is that running roughshod over people’s right to express themselves will somehow prevent right-wing parties from gaining votes.
The net result, actually, is to push angry Europeans into voting the current authorities out of office. We’ve seen that happening, now, all over Europe. Is it any wonder that EU citizens are increasingly voting for right-wing parties? Does it surprise anyone that, under such conditions, a lot of people would be seeking an end to the EU?
The original NRC article has a lot more detailed information than I’ve given here. However, it is written in Dutch. If you want all the details, you can run it through Google Translate to read it in something akin to English. Or, you can read a professionally translated version in the publication New Europe.
