We should learn a few things from the vote yesterday in The Netherlands. The first thing was the number of folks that showed up to vote. They had the largest turnout in their history. The second is that they showed up in order to prove to themselves and the rest of the world that they were not going to let the fear of refugees, dark skinned Muslim refugees, win out and turn their nation into a bunch of bigots and haters. Nope, the Dutch counterpart to America’s Trump was soundly defeated:
Not only the Dutch but the rest of Europe is breathing a sigh of relief over this result. I’m happy for them and I am happy for humanity. I do fear that the radical Islamic fundamentalists who would have liked to have seen the bigots win out in this election to prove to the rational Muslims world over that there is hatred worldwide towards the religion and not just the terrorists, will plan an attack. I’m sure that possibility was on the voter’s minds as well but they stood tall and opted to do the right thing.
We tried to do the right thing here in America and even with all of the interference we were subject to; Trump lost the popular vote by millions yet there he sits in The Whitehouse and the bigots are proclaiming victory.
So I say, plant some Tulips and let them remind us of true bravery and brotherhood.
