As I was researching the N Y Daily News web site yesterday, for a reason why the Yankees keep winning with a line up of virtual unknowns, I ran across an interesting article: Geert Wilders has been invited to speak at a G.O.P. event in Palm Beach Florida. For those who don’t follow Dutch politics, Wilders is an openly pro gay man who is head of the Dutch Party for Freedom. Their interest in economics is negligible, however they support strong measures to restrict and hinder the practice of Islam in Holland. Many commentators of European politics compare them to the racist National Front once led by the bigoted, anti-semitic Jean Marie Le Pen of France.
Today, the Times Dispatch informs us of a Facebook post by Republican delegate from Hanover, indicating that recent protesters in Baltimore should have been subjected to police dogs similar to those experienced by Civil Rights protesters in the 1960’s. “Buddy” should resign immediately. The G.O.P’s tolerance of this type of politics speaks more for their values than any platform ever will.
