Christmas parades across the Netherlands welcoming the arrival of St. Nicholas and his helper, Black Pete, were the scenes of protests by leftists who say Black Pete should be removed from the tradition, because for them, he’s a symbol of racism.

When will we learn that most if not pretty much all of those who claim to be “anti-racist” are, in fact, actually anti-traditionalist? Idiocy like this cheapens the the response to, and diverts attention from, instances (now blessedly rare) of genuine racism!
And of course, most of those who claim most loudly to be “anti-racist” have no problem talking and behaving in racist ways when it comes to people of European heritage. Including stunts like this, attacking traditional customs and traditions! It’s shameful. In any case:
“A group called Kick out Zwarte Piet (KOZP), protested in several cities on Saturday during the entry of Sinterklaas. The group didn’t protest at the national entry in Apeldoorn, however.
“The group contends that Black Pete is a racist caricature that should either be changed or done away with entirely. The majority of Dutch people, however, say there’s nothing wrong with the character, and that he’s simply part of the country’s long-held tradition.
“A recent poll revealed that 88 percent of the Dutch population doesn’t view Black Pete as racist and see no problem with the original appearance.”
Good for the Dutch! I only wish it was 98%…
Tunahan Kuzu, the political leader of the DENK party in the Netherlands, has caused some serious controversy, Dutch broadcaster NOS reports. “If they don’t like a changing Netherlands in which people with different cultures live… they should get lost,” Kuzu says in an interview.

On the contrary, he’s the one who should leave the country – or “get lost,” if you will (other translations include “can better crumble” and “they will rot,” according to a Google Translate version of the NOS page linked above) – he and all his ilk. They should never have been allowed in, in the first place!
This makes me physically sick. How long are Europeans going to simply accept this arrogant excrement – both the attitude, and the people holding it? When will they rise up? Or are they instead going to simply roll over, belly-up, and say, “thank you, master, I will happily be your dhimmi”…?
The journey toward “Eurabia” is far too advanced, it seems to me.
(For a reasonably balanced account, as such things go, of dhimmitude, see the entry for Dhimmitude, on Revolvy.)
To quote Sir Winston Churchill:
