Lately I’ve been thinking quite a lot about a Woody Allen’s sketch on Nazis, from the movie Manhattan.
For the second year in a row, the Oscar nominees – announced by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – see only white actors and actresses among the chosen few in the top four categories. #OscarsSoWhite!
So let me tell you who’s Geert Wilders and why he’s the protagonist of my bi-weekly cartoon for “Quasi-Serious” at 31mag.nl.
Geert Wilders is the leader of the PVV, the Partij voor de Vrijheid, that is, Party for Freedom, a right-wing Dutch political party. As many other xenophobic parties, the PVV is gaining a large consensus, profiting from the EU’s difficulties in coping with the migrants fluxes. It is also, as many other xenophobic parties, spreading around overly conservative, extremist and anti-democratic ideas (and I’m being really polite here). So much for a party for freedom, mh?
