about

(Viezen Kut Thierry)
If you look at the history of populism it is clear this movement returns every political era or so. At this moment two populists are tainting the Dutch political field. One of them is this self-proclaimed intellectual Thierry Baudet who tries to spread the myth of “Islamisation” once more. It is about time we let this political movement die.

lyrics

We watch the rise of the capital -we accept the silence on our part.
we watch the rise of savagery - and put their leaders back in charge.
We watch the rise of the populists - now we've lost control over their words.
Steering towards new colonies – and a great Them versus Us.
 
We close our eyes but can't pretend-
We're sneaking towards bitter ends-
while a new cycle will begin-
we should state: never again!
 
We watch the rise of their capital - We watch their thoughts causing decline.
A revival of right-wing bigotry - and their discriminating pride.
We watch - we watch - we watch and do nothing.
While they rise - they rise- in fascist lines.
 
Relive the saddest parts of history-
Seems like we never learned anything.
Don't trust those men - they always lie.
It is a monster and it needs to die.

We watch - we watch - we watch and do nothing.
While they rise - they rise- in fascist lines.
This Is a Monster!
