More immigrants in Dutch government?

Yesterday our Interior Minister, Ter Horst, who got promoted to that position after as a mayor being fined for DUI and then pressuring the police commissioner to keep that a secret (and therefore nicknamed 'thirsty') , decreed that each department wil have to employ six immigrants a year in high positions, replacing native staff. Whether she specifically means muslims is not clear, but I do get the impression, as she defends the idea by stating that "otherwise 'the people' will no longer recognize their government".

Which is BS of course. 'The people' never ever get to see these civil servants anyway, and for 'the people' to recognize their government it would be much better if the political diversity of the civil servants would reflect that of the population. Especially since all the stifling rules are designed by these servants, that long ago forgot that they are supposed to be just that: servants.

Getting more immigrants into top positions will only move these departments even more to the left, as virtually all immigrants vote left, as that's where their wellfare is being guaranteed... A boozed up idea? Possibly, but more like just the sort of evil we have been getting used to expecting from these socialists. She was mayor of Nijmegen, a.k.a. Havanna aan de Waal because of its leftyness.

Her plea does unintentionally prove one thing, though: a government position is not about qualifications or ability. Knowing the right people is enough to ensure a well paid position where you can do a lot of damage out of sheer incompetence. You only have to be a woman, or an immigrant, or whatever species happens to be considered to be 'left behind' today and thus elegible for 'positive discrimination'. Abilities are totally unimportant, it's all being paid for by the taxpayer anyway. But it remains discrimination, effected by the one body that never ever should discriminate, if only because that body holds both the power and the violence monopoly. Americans have the Second Amendment for this, but other nations do not; certainly not European nations.

On a side note: Jill Biden said as much to the American people when she revealed that Joe was given the choice between VP and foreign minister. Two different jobs, requiring different qualifications. Does not matter at all. A loyal slave gets its reward.

It seems that The Netherlands' going downhill speeds up day by day, but maybe that's to be expected. As I put on top of this blog: the average lifetime of a democracy is around 200 years, so the Dutch one should be about to die...

Positive discrimination is also discrimination. And who will be looked at suspiciously? The promoted non-blonde.

This lunacy feeds racism.
