    In 2015 then Congressman Peter Hoekstra claimed that Dutch politicians were burned by members of the 'Islamic Movement', a claim that has not been proven. Nothing of the sort happened in the Netherlands ever.

    He has now been appointed ambassador to Netherlands. In his first press conference he was asked about his previous comments and whether he will retract his statements or provide examples of such events. He stated that he stands by what he said and then asked for the next question. Next journalist then asks him about his previous comments and whether he will retract his statements or provide examples of such events. Next journalist then asks him about his previous comments and whether he will retract his statements or provide examples of such events. Next journalist then asks him about his statements and...

    They asked the same question five times, they also pointed out the John Adams' quote mounted behind the ambassador - Adams being the first US ambassador to the Netherlands - “honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.”

    Hats off to the Dutch journalists.

    So Trump supposedly asked "why are we letting in so many for these shithole countries" during bipartisan immigration debates.

    The U.S. press is, as you might expect, at maximum outrage.

    Don't read this thread (I assume its as stupid as the Brexit thread) but this is a pretty thoughtful piece from Politico about Democrats in middle America

    https://www.politico.com/magazine/st...indiana-216273
    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    CE in only participating in echo chambers non-shocker

    edit: That article basically boils down to 'it's the economy stupid'. Democrats spend most of their time sitting in an ivory tower talking about social issues which a lot of Americans either don't care about or feel alienated by. The right plays off this with standard reactionary politics.

    If the Democrats addressed deep rooted economic problems they'd upset their donors, so that won't happen. Even though addressing economic problems will make it massively easier to massage the social tensions that exist in America.
