Rotterdam police open fire as Covid protest turns into 'orgy of violence'

The Dutch justice minister, Ferd Grapperhaus, condemned the events. "The riots and extreme violence against police officers, riot police and firefighters last night in Rotterdam are disgusting to see," he said in a statement.

"Protesting is a great right in our society, but what we saw last night is simply criminal behaviour. It has nothing to do with demonstrating."

Politicians do not need to show their COVID pass to visit restaurants and nightlife ...

Wedding party by Grappenhaus failed to abide by Corona regulations in Summer 2020 and was willing to pay the €99 fine ...

Living by example ... destruction of the fiber that holds society together ... decades of failure ... especially after the 9/11 attacks and the call to unite [??] as a Judeo-Christian society. Speaking of isolating a large minority and creating division by Geert Wilders, Thierry Baudet and the PR slime ball Mark who bases his decisions on political gain and fails in leadership to hold the nation together. All talk and no balls. The caretaker cabinet -- over 250 days 😡 -- has set records in minister resignations and numerous gross failures and deception. The Rutte administration has lost the trust of the people ... for too many citizens it took too many years to realize Rutte & co is the problem, failing in setting a long term policy. Governing from one crisis to the next.

The Dutch are failing once again in today's society ... hatred and fascist behavior degrades the bond in a diverse society.


    Kristallnacht, November 9-10, 1938. Blind hatred and anti-Semitism. Hundreds of Jews were mistreated or murdered. The 102,000 names of Dutch Holocaust victims confront us with the horrific Nazi crimes. We must continue to commemorate this nightmare. And never look away again.

It started with riots and was not limited to a single nation. Very few countries were willing to accept refugees fleeing the atrocities of oppression and racism.

Global Xenophobia and Historical Amnesia
