The US Ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Hoekstra, was under the impression that he could bullshit his way out of being held accountable for lies he propagated about “no-go zones” in the Netherlands (where Muslims supposedly don’t allow non-Muslims to enter), and Muslims are burning Dutch politicians to death.
The Dutch press, unlike the US media, seems to be more independent and less of a bunch of sycophants seeking to curry favor with whoever is in power.
Today Dutch press welcomed @petehoekstra as new ambassador to the Netherlands. In 2015 Hoekstra said Dutch”politicians are being burned” (not true). The only one who did get burned today is… Hoekstra himself. By refusing to answer our questions. pic.twitter.com/Dv2aalbhDP
