The Alderman for Public Health of Rotterdam, Fortuynist Ms. Marrianne van den Anker was interviewed by the Rotterdams Dagblad, concerning Public Health problems amongst Rotterdam youth. The problems had been revealed by a Public Health Monitor amongst 10.000 Rotterdam youngsters. Ms. van den Anker reviewed (Dutch) some possible responses by the Department of Public Health of Rotterdam. There are problems of addiction, HIV-infection, abuse, sexual abuse and violence against children, children being left to fend for themselves at a very young age and children of parents who are retarded, who are not treated as human beings by their parents.
To counter these problems Ms. van den Anker was in favour of compulsory anti-conception and forced abortions on pregnant women who could not take care of their children. Ms. van den Anker specifically singled out Antillean (Caribbean Black) women who are addicted, HIV-infected and have several children, without knowing who the fathers are and children of retarded parents.
There is no doubt that the problems shown by the Rotterdam Health Monitor are very real. They have been ignored for a long time and been allowed to accumulate. A cousin of mine who works in Rotterdam as a special educational and care worker for teenage boys who drop out of school and turn to crime told me that IQ-tests reveal the extreme low IQ-scores of the youths concerned, with his charges score as low as 49 IQ points. These IQ-tests had been forbidden by the socialist borough, but have been reintroduced after the entry of the right-wing coalition in 2002.
The message of Ms. van den Anker is causing waves in the Dutch media and politics. There are comparisons to Nazi-Germany. In this case the comparisons seem to be spot on for once. It is just one of the many examples showing that the right-wing movement in The Netherlands is not a Conservative movement and that the socialist instincts have a hard time dieing out.
Having said that I really have no clue what should happen to counter the problems shown up by the Rotterdam Health monitor.
