The Handmaid’s Tale enacted in Belgium

With elections to the European Parliament due to take place in Belgium on Sunday June 9, the ‘gloves are off’ and the Green party has taken a swipe at the Right.

It argues that as a matter of historic fact, right wing parties believe in encouraging women to have as many children as possible in order to keep any country racially pure.

The Mother’s Cross

In Nazi Germany, there was a special award, the Mother’s Cross which came in three different versions, depending on the number of children born.

The Gruen (Green) Party argues that one of the major platforms of the alleged far-right Flemish party Vlaams Belang is all about the need for racial purity and it argues that Belgian mothers (presumably those who are ‘white’) should be concentrating on breeding rather than working!

On Sunday May 12 a number of Green supporters emphasised this view by dressing in Red hassocks with white wimples as did those in the phenomenally successful TV series Handmaid’s Tale based on the novel by Margaret Atwood.

Green Party accuses extreme right

One of Gruen leaders said “The extreme right is a danger to our way of living together. And we are all on their list, although some groups are higher up the list than others.

“If it depends on Vlaams Belang, the clock will be turned back to times when women had little say over their own bodies. They want to decide if and when you, as a woman, should start having children. Is it an unwanted pregnancy? Then they want to restrict your right to an abortion.”

As was to be expected, a spokesperson for Vlaams Belang rejected this accusation.

      The Green party is one of the most dangerous political parties around. They are more facist than anyone, they have moved past the gimic of the Global Warming and now revealing their true colours. And alough I did not have a big family I see nothing wrong with anyone having a large family as long as they can afford to. But sadly that is no longer the case for sensible Europeans, we cannot afford them but our immigrants and mainly the illegal immigrants are breeding like rabbits, this is not good for Europe.
