The Netherlands and Our Fellow Nations
Once upon a time, not to long ago, the Kingdom of the Netherlands was a world empire. In the youth years of those who are now old, our nation was the world’s third colonial power in terms of land surface and population numbers. From this great empire now only the Dutch Antilles remain: the three ‘kingdom ountries’ of Aruba, Curaçao and St. Maarten and the three ‘special municipalities’ of Bonaire, Sr. Eustatius and Saba. From the Dutch settler colonies still remains the Afrikaner people living in southern Africa: next to the Flemish people, the Afrikaner people are our closest brother nation, sharing our language, religion and history. The other former overseas territories of the Netherlands still remain close to us as well: through close family bonds, long business relations and shared cultural heritage. Surinam, only independent since 1975, is still very close: Surinamese people are still our neighbours, Surinamese cuisine is still in our restaurants and Surinamese jungles still attract our adventurers. Indonesia is farther removed, but still pulls our minds and our hearts: it is it attracts our braver entrepreneurs, it is treasured in our family histories and it retains a nostalgic magic of our ‘Emerald Empire’ – it is the Netherlands’ ‘Jewel in the Crown’.
Since the loss of our overseas empire – since the traumatic separation from Indonesia in 1949, the forced departure to New Guinea in 1962 and the unnecessary secession of Surinam in 1975 – the Netherlands have become a smaller place. Smaller in world view and future vision – and smaller in our hearts. What remains is the artificial ‘guilt’ of the cultural-marxist historical narrative – and the condescending tone of the neo-liberal ‘global development indices’. There are the post-traumatic collective mood swings between an ignored past, a repressed consciousness, a residual responsibility and a self-denied sense of loss. There is the unnatural distance to our Afrikaner brother nation: the over-compensated rhetoric of anti-apartheid activism has been followed by the deafening silence of the politically correct – and anti-white -mainstream media that are ignoring and censoring the ‘inverse apartheid’ persecution of the Afrikaners by the incompetent, corrupt and malicious South African regime. There is the interminably delayed final account of the Netherlands’ colonial past. In recent years, wave after wave of fake ‘refugees’ from the deepest recesses of Africa and Asia has been welcomed with wholly unearned benefits and privileges, while decades-old promises to the true refugees from the Moluccans, our most loyal soldiers in the Dutch East Indies, remain broken and betrayed. Throughout Eastern Europe and the Middle East, thousands of arrogant ex-‘labour migrant’ are funding villas and swimming pools by defrauding Dutch tax and welfare schemes, but humble widow and pension payments are being cut by applying small-minded ‘living cost index’ discounts in Surinam and Indonesia. In the Netherlands, globalist ‘investment’ mafias are welcomed with residence permits and tax privileges, but the proven business acumen of ex-colonial Dutch citizens of Chinese descent is being thwarted by narrow-minded bureaucracy. Fake refugees can simply step into a boat, cross the sea and gain ‘asylum’ status in the Netherlands without a shred of paper identification – and then import the rest of their clan into the country through clever ‘family reunification’ schemes – but truly persecuted Afrikaners are not even eligible for refugee status under the current regime of selective – and anti-white – ‘human rights’.
IDNL offers a different perspective on the Netherlands’ colonial and imperial past: IDNL emphasizes authentic identity, historical responsibility and political innovation, also with regards to our fellow nations overseas. For IDNL, the Netherlands’ historical ties with our Afrikaner brother nation and with the peoples of Surinam and Indonesia are important – more important than totally artificial globalist constructs such as the ‘EU’. IDNL insists on the preferential treatment of these ‘ex-imperial’ ties: building upon these organic and historical ties, the Netherlands will be able to pursue an alternative foreign policy. After ditching self-destructive membership of obsolete globalist constructs such as the ‘EU’, ‘Euro’, ‘Schengen’, ‘refugee conventions’ and ‘development aid’, the Netherlands can create an alternative international position that encompasses a mutually beneficial new alliance with its true Fellow Nations overseas. For IDNL, such a policy requires a balanced approach that respects the ethnic identities and sovereign rights of our Fellow Nations, but that also reaffirms our shared cultural affinity, commercial aspirations and political interests.
Within the Netherlands, IDNL wishes a reappraisal for the concept of ‘sphere sovereignty’: this will serve the specific interests of the Antillean, Surinam, Moluccan, Papuan, Chinese and Indonestian communities. A part of the enormous resources that have thus far been used for subsidizing and sponsoring globalist-promoted mass-immigration by wholly alien ‘guest labourers’, ‘refugees’ and ‘EU residents’ can be easily diverted to these non-alien Fellow Nations’ communities. The humble Indonesian widow, the loyal Moluccan soldier, the hard-working Chinese entrepreneur, the conscientious Surinam nurse and the patient Antillean community worker – these all should have a safe and respected place in the Netherlands, retaining their own identities. If they wish, they should have the right to their own schools, health clinics, community centres and neighbourhoods – they should not be forced into the collectivist-nihilist one-size-fits-all ‘diversity’. Our shared history gives these Fellow Nation communities the right to a small but secure place in our country – even if the small-territory Netherlands have not much spare space, the big-hearted Dutch people are decent and honest enough to grant them this place. Their marriage partners, family members and business contacts deserve preferential treatment by our immigration authorities – they should have more rights than those other ‘immigrants’ who have now overstayed their welcome as non-working ‘guest workers’, home-holiday-making fake ‘refugees’ and anti-Western ‘jihad’ terrorists. IDNL also wishes for a generous welcome to the real refugees of our Afrikaner Fellow Nation fleeing from South Africa: their historically proven communal spirit and work ethics will be valued by our people. IDNL’s Fellow Nation concept deserves the full attention of the Dutch patriotic-identitarian movement: it shows us where we can find friends and allies against the globalist hostile elite that is currently ruling our country.
With its ‘fire sale’ policies of deracinating ‘internationalization’, de-industrializing ‘out-sourcing’, neo-liberal ‘open borders’, cultural-marxist ‘diversity’ and replacement-level ‘mass-immigration’ the globalist hostile elite has brought the Netherlands to the edge of the abyss. But these policies threaten not the indigenous people of the Netherlands, i.e. the Dutch and Frisian peoples who have their forever-home in the Ems-Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta lands, but also the Fellow Nation communities that have settled in the Netherlands since the start of the decolonization process. As the disastrous effects of globalist ‘open borders’ and enforced ‘diversity’ are becoming increasingly noticeable, these Fellow Nation communities are particularly exposed to these effects: they are often more socially conservative and economically vulnerable. Social-cultural instability and accelerating mass-immigration are rapid undermining their already precarious socio-economic position: lacking the resources of indigenous Dutch people, they cannot escape the immigrant-flooded inner-cities and they are caught in the downward ‘diversity’ spiral of urban decay, youth unemployment, rising crime rates and declining education standards. These Antillean, Surinam, Moluccan, Papuan, Chinese and Indonesian communities see how ever-new waves of ‘immigrants’ take over their neighbourhood space, their entrepreneurial niches and their children’s future and they wonder: how is it possible that the indigenous Dutch let this all happen, almost without the slightest sign of protest? They wonder how the Netherlands, the country that they once looked up to as the great and prosperous heartland of the Dutch empire, came to fall so deep and so quick. Numerically overtaken by greater and more dangerous immigrant populations from Africa and the Middle East, they are increasingly marginalized: they electorally unrepresented and politically powerless. IDNL offers them a way out from dead-end of ‘business-as-usual’ politics.
IDNL now gives our Fellow Nations the opportunity of siding with the rising patriottic-identitarian movement. IDNL invites them to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Dutch people – against the globalist hostile elite, against neo-liberal ‘open borders’ and against cultural-marxist ‘diversity’. IDNL offers them a place under the – admittedly watery and scarce – Dutch sun, but it also asks them to join the Dutch people in its hour of need. The time has come for them to join the Dutch people in its fight against globalism. Those of our Follow Nations who do not hold Dutch citizenship can associate themselves with IDNL as Allies – they will can register themselves through our website. Those of our Fellow Nations currently living in the Netherlands as Dutch citizens – Antilleans, Surinamese, Moluccans, Papuans, Chinese and Indonesians – can join IDNL as Members. If they respect the indigenous rights of the Dutch people and the patriotic-identitarian aims of IDNL, then IDNL offers them a political home and a political voice. They can make their voice heard within and through IDNL: they can add theirs to ours against the globalist political cartel that is currently leading our country into disaster. Their grandparents and parents chose to come to the Netherlands because it was the great and prosperous heartland of the Dutch empire – if they want to keep the Netherlands great and prosperous now they should chose to join IDNL.
The goal of IDNL (Identitarian Netherlands) is to disseminate identitarian ideas in the Netherlands and community organising/empowerment. We organize meetings and lectures for politically engaged people. For more information, please contact us here.
