By George, I think they’ve got it!

The Netherlands, a liberal-socialist’s paradise, seems to have at least partially woken from their stupor.  Hat tip to Mark Hemingway at NRO.

“Two weeks ago, the country’s biggest left-wing political grouping, the Labor Party, which has responsibility for integration as a member of the coalition government led by the Christian Democrats, issued a position paper calling for the end of the failed model of Dutch “tolerance.””


“But there was a difference. If judged on the standard scale of caution in dealing with cultural clashes and Muslims’ obligations to their new homes in Europe, the language of the Dutch position paper and Lilianne Ploumen, Labor’s chairperson, was  exceptional.

The paper said: “The mistake we can never repeat is stifling criticism of cultures and religions for reasons of tolerance.””

They can talk the talk… but can they walk the walk?  Only time will tell…

    Well this a good start, that even the most liberal Dutch are waking up and are starting to smell the coffee when it comes to extreme liberal tolerence.

    If nothing else, they've realized that tolerance has to run both was and simply appeasing the squeaky wheel just isn't going to work.

    Like I said, time will tell.

    A few more "youth" riots (read that: young Muslim thugs), and more of Europe might wake up to the threat from within.

    The sad thing is that the liberals will make us reinvent the wheel instead of learning from Europe's mistakes.

    Liberal Tolerance has run amuck. Duh!

    Our media here in the U.S. is not quite finished destroying democracy as set forth over 200 years ago.

    The conservative revolt against the MSM print establishment has caused them some financial pain. Hey, NYTimes, sell some more of your assets to keep printing…LOL.

    Conservatism takes effort.

    Isn't it Ironic don't you think—-Renewing Hope, Seeking Justice is the theme of 2009’s National migration Week, held January 4-10. The observance began over 25 years ago by the bishops to be a moment for Catholics to take stock of the wide diversity of the Church and the ministries serving them. As the face of the local churches continue to change, these materials are becoming more and more necessary. The materials created for National Migration Week also provide an important educational resource that can be used by individuals, families, schools, and parishes to learn about the complex issues surrounding migration phenomena….So thank a migrat worker for all that they have done to make your land a better place and prey for them in there hour of need as the worlds economy takes a nose dive and people start to as we always do blame others for our own problems.
