    Dutch Police investigate Staphorst pro blackface mob action

    Overijssel police have launched an investigation into Saturday’s trouble outside the Bible Belt village of Staphorst, which led the mayor to cancel a demonstration by anti-racism campaigners during the annual Sinterklaas procession. Riot police were drafted in after a mob of pro blackface locals blocked roads to try to stop the demonstrators reaching the village.

    Although blackface Piets have largely disappeared from bigger Dutch towns and cities, they are still a feature of the Sinterklaas celebrations in more rural areas. One of the cars which was stopped was carrying observers from Amnesty International which warned a week ago that the right to demonstrate in the Netherlands is under threat. Amnesty International’s Gerbrig Klos, one of three people in the car that was attacked, said she had felt extremely threatened by the pro blackface group. ‘We were surrounded and attacked by dozens of people,’ she told the AD. ‘They were out to frighten us and stop us reaching the village.

    They kicked the car, threw eggs and an oily substance at us. My car has dents, the number plate and windscreen wipers have been ripped off and the back tyres were let down. They made it impossible for us to do our jobs.’ The police said in a statement on Monday that no one has yet been arrested but that several formal reports had been made about threatening behavior, vandalism of a car and theft. Footage Camera footage of the trouble is now being studied and the police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

    ‘The police regret that the demonstration had to be cancelled,’ the statement said. ‘The right to demonstrate is a greater good in the Netherlands.’ Justice minister Dilan Yesilgφz said on Twitter she was shocked at the way KOZP demonstrators were attacked.

    ‘You have the right to demonstrate for whatever you want,’ she said. ‘But you must never silence others with violence or intimidation.’ The minister said she awaited the results of the police investigation in ‘full confidence’.

    The short of it.

    In Dutch tradition , St Nick had a little helper who happened to be black.

    So the Netherlands was being inclusive. Instead of having St Nick and all his helpers white , there was one that was black.

    But yesterday's inclusivity is today's racism. So now the black character in the tradition has to be removed. According to the PC fucktard brigade.

    And at the same, i bet i can find the same fuckheads saying that Santa and his helpers are all too white.

    Let's Google that ... Ah : How the Santa Myth Further Blinds (Rich White) People to Their Privilege - Without Ritual, Autonomous Negotiations

    The Elf represents and privileges heteronormative, cis, and White/non-Black individuals. And, of course, Santa is almost always White.

    This century identity politics dominate discourse in Universities.

    There are just claims of equal rights for all minorities.

    However class politics is ignored the elephant in the room as the ultra rich have extracted more this century.

    Students at my former place of work in Bristol UK toppled a statue of slave owner philanthropist and school founder Colston but they do not protest in favour of the poor in one of the richest cities in UK. The students are mainly middle or upper class their cleaners on minimum wage , porter s and increasingly low paid academics , in wealthy Clifton.

    Zvaart Piet in the so called "Bible Belt" may be as bizarre anachronistic like Krampas or following five times daily a desert pedo , an Indian Prince or eating the body of a Semite nailed to a tree.

    Amnesty International might focus its attention on mass murder a days drive away.

    Zvaart teh nederlands for Black is from same root as Schwarz and swarthy often used of unshaven men

    Painting your face black was never considered racist until the PC fuckheads said it was. The elected prime minister of Canada did it as late as the 2000's.

    Unforced inclusivity is the new racist.

    Unfortunately some humans have yet to evolve. Skidmark and these retarded racists for example still drag their knuckles along the floor.

    I'd like to know how blackface is racist.
    In China women with darker or yellow skin paste their faces with white. Is that Whiteface? Is that racist?
    If I go to a Halloween party as Zulu warrior (requiring blackface) is that racist?

    Meanwhile we have modern slavery in the garment industry , the burning debate about door labels where we piss and babies being murdered in Ukraine and a possible nuclear disaster.

    Of course racism needs to be stopped and education. I see no such imperative to remove other anachronisms like hereditary leaders, the Papacy,
    I recall my schoolmates grandpa at the Docks who sincerely believed every Chinese takeaway was Peking or Peeking spies, people spoke of Yids, Paddies , Jocks, Taffys , Darkies, Pakis and the Boche, Jerry built and the Hun .
    Here the terms Kek and Falang are still used commonly.

    The right to not be offended seems to have surpassed recognizing the priorities of injustice.
    I don't care about being called Falang I am treated no worse here than anywhere else.

    I do see a lot of virtue signalling in the Guardian and similar woke organs esp the rights of people with penises to enter women's prisons, toilets, changing rooms, refuges even.

    Fawlty Towers Major on cricket they weren't blacks they were WOGS

    Alf Garnett , The Black and White Minstrel Show was peek time BBC blackface until 1970s?
    The White Australia Policy , Apartheid and widespread segregation in USA were in my life time, progress is possible, persuasion and education are preferable to any other de programming.

    They are not mutually exclusive. One can work on solving more than one fault at once. Though world events kinda shows the futility of most efforts.
