The Belgian DOJ has started an investigation into the allegedly 'racist' character of Schild en Vrienden, the Flemish rightwing youth organization (no formal links with Vlaams Belang) of which members would have posted 'racist', 'sexist', 'homophobic' messages on private and core group (Discord) FB pages.

It's all hyped up beyond belief, and it is also becoming increasingly clear that the Pano 'documentary' by the extreme leftwing state broadcaster VRT, was meant as an Operation Damage N-VA, since Schild en Vrienden members can be found on several N-VA lists for the upcoming municipal elections. For the record, N-VA profiles itself as some sort of Vlaams Belang Lite, but they never fooled me. They are no Conservatives (its Chairman is the kind of guy who is very hunky dory with attending Mister Gay Flanders contests e.g.), and they certainly aren't pro strong borders, be it EU or Belgian ones. But of course, even a party which from a distance of three miles looks somewhat to the right of Joseph Stalin is too much for VRT (Vlaamse Radio en Televisie) and its sponsors the socialists and greens.

Anyway, the VRT strategy is working since all across Flanders, N-VA candidates who were S & V members have stepped back and the party is in full damage control...

... for nothing.

As for Schild en Vrienden itself, its chairman, Dries Van Langenhove, has released a movie in which he debunks the allegations of the VRT docu maker, Tim Vanderheyden, whom he, alas, allowed to make the docu in the first place. That fact alone should be reason to treat the VRT allegations with the greatest care because indeed, S&V allowed Vanderheyden an inside look into the organization. If there really would have been a risk for disclosure of explicit material, Van Langenhove wouldn't have given Vanderheyden a free hand. To be sure, some questionable memes were found here and there, and there is no doubt that some of them emanate from S&V circles. But the origin of a great slew of other memes is certainly doubtful. Given the extreme leftwing character of the state broadcaster, which forever has had a deserved reputation as a blood red bastion, it would come as no surprise to me that memes like this one:

... were in fact planted by leftist operatives.

It is entirely possible. In the following video Schild en Vrienden Chairman Van Langenhove debunks the allegations and makes a strong case that the entire Pano docu was nothing more than a political maneuver meant to damage the right just prior to the elections:

If only I had some more time to provide a translation...

If you are still sceptical, know this, and I realize it sounds insane, but yet it is the truth. The Director Social Media of the State Broadcaster VRT, a public organization funded by taxpayers from all stripes and therefore supposed to be neutral... that Director of Social Media...

.... is a young woman with a muslim father and a history of radical leftist activism. Her name?

Jihad Van Puymbroeck.

No, I kid you not. Here's a photo from around the time, early this year, that VRT hired her:

"Yes, my name is Jihad, it's my honor and my pride."

VRT hired her despite a huge number of questionable tweets. The most innocent of which are perhaps the ones in the upper left corner: "BDW [Bart De Wever, N-VA mayor of Antwerp - MFBB] reminds me of Hitler. It's his way of talking". "And let us now make it clear that N-VA are assholes".

Apparently these opinions are no problem for a state broadcaster looking for an objective Director Social Media!

And what about this? One of the main points in the Pano docu Verheyden was huffing and puffing about was that Schild and Vrienden members were known to use weapons in shooting clubs. Ooooooh the horror! Look at that:

However, some bloke sporting weapons was NEVER a problem for the VRT when the person in question hailed from a red, green or muslim corner. Case in point Dyab Abou Jahjah, a Palestinian firebrand who in a grey past unfortunately obtained Belgian nationality through a phoney marriage with a certain Peggy Paternoster. Mr Jahjah has a very long history of provoking unrest. In times past, when he weighed 30 pounds less and was Chairman of the AEL (Arab European League), he was 'famous' for organizing pro-Palestinian riots, harassing the Antwerp PD, and loudly claiming that arabic should become Belgium's fourth official language. Earlier this year he announced that he would participate in the elections with a new leftist party, The glorious news of which was reason enough for VRT to roll out the red carpet for our (former?) Hizballah terrorist:

Dyab Abou Jahjah during an interview by Bart Schols of the VRT talkshow 'De afspraak', early in 2018.

And this is a photo Dyab posted a couple of years back on social media. Ooooh what a hero! Too bad that by all accounts, former (?) Hizballah member Dyab Abou Jahjah (by his own admission) seems to have rather belonged to the Coca Cola Commando branch, ooooooooops Mint Tea Platoon of the forces combating the Israeli occupiers.

This photo has been doing the rounds on internet for at least 5 or 6 years, and yet in February it was NO PROBLEM whatsoever for Bart Schols to invite radical A-hole Jahjah to his show. Mr Jahjah was lucky that his tweet with the heroic AK47-toting pose escaped the attention of the then brand new VRT Director Social Media, Jihad Van Puymbroeck, or else!

Anyway, it only proves that in Belgium you can get away with just about anything...

... if you hail from the red, green or muslim camp. It's an entirely different matter if you identify as a Flemish patriot.
