“People (Germans) use to frighten their children, ‘If you do not behave, you will surely end up at Dachau.'”
– Theodore Haas
As the European federalists continue trying ruthlessly to construct their would-be superstate, with unquestioning support from the “left wing” throughout the nation states involved, disturbing news emerges from Amsterdam. The Guardian reports:
the Dutch capital may lose its reputation for tolerance over plans to dispatch nuisance neighbours to “scum villages” made from shipping containers.
The mayor, Eberhard van der Laan, insists his controversial new £810,000 policy to tackle antisocial behaviour is to protect victims of abuse and homophobia from harassment.
The camps where antisocial tenants will be rehoused for three to six months have been called “scum villages” because the policy echoes proposals from Geert Wilders, the far-right populist, who last year demanded that “repeat offenders” be “sent to a village for scum”.
But Bartho Boer, a spokesman for the mayor, denies that the plans are illiberal. “We want to defend the liberal values of Amsterdam,” he says. “We want everyone to be who he and she is – whether they are gay and lesbian or stand up to violence and are then victims of harassment. We as a society want to defend them.”
The last time a self declared “socialist” tried this kind of idea in Europe there were terrible consequences. The echos of those camps, also designed to lock up “asocials,” are entirely ignored by the left leaning Guardian. Furthermore the self-declared “left wing” and “socialist” Daily Mirror newspaper runs an opinion piece where their columnist, Carole Malone, can barely contain her excitment at the idea:
Dam good suggestion
[…] only when families have changed their ways will they be eligible for rehousing.And, as attractive as that sounds, it could never happen here [in the UK] because the human rights lobby would go ape.
And nuisance families, who frequently wreck decent people’s lives, bank on that. Which is why they know they can do whatever the hell they like as they’ll never have to face the consequences.
And while scum villages might sound harsh, I’m willing to bet that within six months nuisance families won’t exist in Amsterdam.
Hammering home the fact that the left wing is clearly being used to construct a terrifying new world in Europe often frustrates the debate but I believe it is essential. In my opinion neither the left wing nor the right wing provide any reasonable responses to many of the obvious dangers emerging on our collective horizon. However most of the so-called left seem almost blind to many of the problems they are bringing directly to our doorstep.
Adolf Hitler emerged from the left wing, as tyranny often does. His kind, once in power, are then preserved and protected by the right wing. These neo-concentration camps which are now being suggested in Europe make for a good example of this dynamic. They are being ushered in by the “left wing” Partij van de Arbeid and, once established, will likely be enthusiastically used and protected by the right.
I use the term “concentration camps” here in its specific sense. A concentration camp is designed to do just that, put all the “undesirables” into one area. The plan in question is clearly modelled on Geert Wilders’ suggestions reported here by Dutch News where he makes this point explicit:
‘Repeat offenders should be forcibly removed from their neighbourhood and sent to a village for scum,’ Wilders said. ‘They will then be put into converted containers as homes. If juveniles are involved, their families should be moved too. Put all the trash together.’
 The National Socialist German Worker’s Party started theirs in Dachau in 1933 and its intent was exactly the same: put all the scum together. Do not buy into the lie that Hitler was “right wing” in the sense we now understand it.

 Concentration camps were initially distinct from the death camps which came later on in Europe’s history.
