Ultimate horror & some hope regarding the transgenderist project

Screenshot from Reality's Last Stand
The Dutch subtitles do contain 5 or 6 typos …

A video in English, with subtitles in Dutch: I hope my pronunciation and the quality of the sound have improved sufficiently now …It is a rather long video. But it is not just me talking: It includes Dutch-subtitled ‘video-quotes’ from Kari Lake (future Governor of Arizona), Steven Crowder, Reality’s Last Stand and Lauren Chen.This video… Continue reading Ultimate horror & some hope regarding the transgenderist project

Marxism was never crushed

Proud of the farmers

Amazing. Last Thursday, a very warm day here in the Netherlands: many hundreds came to a meeting of a Dutch political party with English speaking guests only! And on top of that: the meeting was about a very important but depressing subject: the role of the Communist Party of China in the world.  The organising… Continue reading Marxism was never crushed

Oops…

A painting in Dutch Museum ‘More’ by a man,
in a project about more attention to female painters …

I posted this before on Instagram. I do not use it anymore (search the first use of the name Tulsi Gabbard on this site, for the reason).

So you see the setting sun itself shining through clouds, closer by its reflection in the North Sea, and even closer the reflection in the channels: one by one due to the… Continue reading Once in a lifetime

Meanwhile above the Netherlands

Artificial island IJsseloog in Ketelmeer: part of the IJsselmeer. ‘Meer’=lake. Until 1932 the lake was sea (‘Zuiderzee’).

In this century (also in my lifetime) I returned by airplaine to the Netherlands 11 times. Never before have I had such a beautiful view during the landing. And not only has this photo turned out exceptionally well as a picture (thanks to the sunset and the clouds), there is also a lot of interesting… Continue reading Meanwhile above the Netherlands

Schwab: “Water, gender and so on”

About Schwab, Rutte, the farmer’s son Jouke and much more

A couple of weeks ago the Old Dutch Painter started a new ‘category’: Meanwhile In The Netherlands (see link in the footer). It was not set up to report about current affairs, but here we are: Dutch farmers’ protests are now in the news worldwide. So I connect some dots for you. Quite a number… Continue reading Schwab: “Water, gender and so on”
