Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV), said in an interview that the recent cultural, ideological and security developments in Europe were "catastrophic".
Wilders blamed open borders and cultural relativism. He told Hungarian news channel Echo TV that the majority of European leaders failed to resist the policy of open borders, while “we are being invaded in our own countries”.
In an exclusive interview, he described the processes that have emerged in Europe in recent years both cultural and ideological and in the realm of security. Wilders explained that most European leaders were not in a position to contradict the policy of the EU’s open borders.
Wilders drew attention to the fact that so-called “asylum seekers” to Europe were in reality economic immigrants, and because of that, the original population and culture were being replaced.
Wilders echoed the notion of French author Renaud Camus, known for coining the phrase Le Grand Remplacement [the “great replacement” in English] which relates to replacement migration in the context of immigration.
According to Wilders, most leaders in the European Union indulge in cultural relativism, as they do not believe in their own identity, nor do they think it is worthwhile for a country to state that it has Christian roots. They argue that all cultures are equal, and in fact, they believe cultures ought to be mixed.
“Not all, but most of the leaders of the EU pursue cultural relativism, they don’t believe in their own identity. They say that all cultures are equal and should be mixed.”
The Dutch Eurosceptic politician called cultural relativism and open borders a poison. At the same time he highlighted the immigration policy of the Hungarian government as a positive example.
In his view, Prime Minister Viktor Orban was an example for people in Italy and Austria to recognise that there was another possibility against immigration.
“I do not say that every Muslim is a bad person, but Islam and freedom as ideologies do not fit in next to each other,” he said.
