I had already written Belgium off long ago as one of the lost European territories. Perhaps I was wrong to do so.
A high-ranking member of Belgium’s Flemish nationalist party has appeared on the roof of a city hall in Antwerp to deliver a message about what he called a latent “occupation” by Muslims.
Filip Dewinter, leader of the right-wing, anti-immigration Vlaams Belang party in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, uploaded a video of himself standing on the rooftop and giving a quick history lesson before making his case.
Bij het begin van het politieke werkjaar een bijzonder initiatief: een statement vanop het dak van het Antwerpse stadhuis geflankeerd door een pas gerestaureerde adelaar! #HetStadIsVanOns @VBAntwerpen #Antwerpen pic.twitter.com/0x3528eLM2

The city hall in Antwerp “has been around since 1565,” Dewinter said, emphatically adding that over five centuries it was occupied “by the Romans, the Spaniards, the French, the Germans and today by Islam.”
According to the MP, every fourth Antwerp resident is Muslim, and “more than half” of schoolchildren come from Islamic families. “That must come to an end,” Dewinter said, calling for a stop to the perceived “occupation of our city by Islam.”
Events like this are few and far between in Europe. I remember thinking that the 2015 migrant invasion would rouse the entire continent from its slumber, but was sadly disappointed when literally no one of any note uttered a peep about what was happening.
Perhaps, belatedly, something is finally going to happen.
Aside from its traditional secessionist agenda, Vlaams Belang (‘Flemish interest’ in English) has long stood against the EU’s immigration policy and multiculturalism.
Its popularity surged on the back of the migration crisis that hit Europe in 2015, allowing the party to garner over 13 percent of the Flemish vote during the 2018 Belgian local elections.
In 2019, Vlaams Belang scored huge gains in the nationwide, regional and European elections held on the same day, increasing its number of MPs in the Belgian parliament to 18 – its best result in several years.
Apologies in advance for the lack of Belgium-related memes in this article.
I checked, but there were none.
Here, have a Guy Fieri meme instead. I’ve been chortling about it all day:
There are probably more Guy Fieri memes on the internet than there are Belgians in the world.
I believe this is because Belgium is a conspiracy and does not, in fact, exist.
Just think, have you ever met someone from Belgium?
Non-fictional that is.
Why do you think that is?
Well, it’s obvious that the EU quietly got rid of the Belgians when they opened up their HQ in Brussels, and then tried to import millions of Moslems to fill in the empty apartments and hoped that no one would notice.
Well, some people are noticing and asking questions like, “Hey, where did all the Belgians go? Wasn’t there a country here at some point? What’s this weird-looking building doing here? Are all the Belgians being held prisoner inside?”
I don’t know what is going on in Belgium, but I’m glad that at long last, people are starting to ask the right questions and raise some concerns about what happened to all the Belgian people.
