The Dutch Donald Trump wasn’t stopped, he was copied

In 1996, a Dutch judge sentenced the extreme-right politician Hans Janmaat for saying “As soon as we have the power and the opportunity, we will eliminate multiculturalism.” Pretty tame compared to Wilders, who’s constantly denouncing “palaces of hatred” (mosques) and “street terrorists” (Moroccan youth). At the start of his campaign, current prime minister Mark Rutte of the VVD said he hates the term “multiculturalism.” Rutte hasn’t prevailed over the populist right; he’s joined its ranks.
