Scanning Google news results today, the story of Dutch politician Willie Dille‘s suicide seems to have been completely blanked out by mainstream English-language news organisations. Shortly before committing suicide, she claimed, in a video, that she had been kidnapped and gang-raped by Muslims and that the whole thing had been arranged by Arnoud van Doorn. Like Dille, Arnoud van Doorn had been a member of Geert Wilders’ anti-Islam party, the PVV. Bizarrely, however, Van Doorn left the party and converted to Islam.
How can the refusal to report this story be justified? Even if Dille’s claims about rape and kidnap were false (and so far there is no indication of that), the fact that she made them and then committed suicide would be newsworthy in itself.
There is no way to explain this failure to perform basic news-reporting functions except by a desire to protect Muslims.
Imagine the roles were reversed. Image a Muslim or other BAME politician claimed she had been kidnapped and gang-raped by racists or Islamophobes and then committed suicide. Do you think the MSM would show the same scruples about reporting it?
Here is the video she made, now with English sub-titles.
