Former Minister Compares Wilders to National Socialists

Former minister Ella Vogelaar (Labor) has warned the Dutch about the rise of the Freedom Party, saying “in the 30s of the last century, people only recognized the dramatic danger of national socialism when it was too late.” She added that politicians must stop treating Wilders as a democratic politician with acceptable opinions. Vogelaar resigned last year under great pressure of party leader Wouter Bos. She now says that she could not have made these remarks about Wilders at that time because Bos opposed them.
