QuotesEdit

  • Het Westen lijdt aan een auto-immuunziekte. Een deel van ons organisme – een belangrijk deel: ons afweersysteem, datgene wat ons zou moeten beschermen – heeft zich tegen ons gekeerd. Op elk vlak worden we verzwakt, ondermijnd, overgeleverd. Kwaadwillende, agressieve elementen worden ons maatschappelijk lichaam in ongehoorde aantallen binnengeloodst, en de werkelijke toedracht en gevolgen worden verdoezeld.
    • The West suffers from an autoimmune disease. A part of our organism — an important part: our immune system, which ought to protect us — has turned itself against us. At every level, we are being weakened, undermined, and surrendered. Malicious, aggressive elements are led into our social bodies in unheard numbers, and the actual circumstances and consequences are obscured.
    • Thierry Baudet: Westen lijdt aan auto-immuunziekte. Address to the first Forum voor Democratie party congress on 14 January 2017.
  • Ik [wil] niet dat Europa Afrikaniseert (...) ik wil graag dat Europa dominant blank en cultureel blijft zoals het is.
    • I do not want Europe to Africanize (...) I want Europa to stay dominantly white and remain culturally the way it is.
    • Thierry Baudet in de Vluchtweek. Interview on Radio Amsterdam on 17 September 2015.
  • [...] de EU is opgericht om oorlog te voeren en om vrijhandel in te perken. De gedachte was immers dat de sovjetunie bestreden moest worden - en dat dat alleen kon door een geleide planeconomie achter de facades van een nationale schijndemocratie. De EU heeft dus niets met vrede en welvaart te maken.
    • [...] the EU was founded to wage war and reduce free trade. Since the thought behind it was that the Soviet Union had to be countered and that this could only be done with a command economy behind the facade of a fake national democracy. So the EU has nothing to do with peace and prosperity.

  • Ik ben tegen de fundamentele uitgangspositie van de hedendaagse kunst - namelijk vervreemding, politieke "statements", oikofobie, zelfhaat, deconstructie van onze identiteit.
    • I oppose contemporary art's fundamental point of departure - namely alienation, political "statements", oikophobia, self-hatred, and the deconstruction of our identity.

  • Quo usque tandem factionem [sic] cartellum et officiorum machina patientia nostra abutitur [sic] dum navis praetoria resurrectionis ad profiscendum [sic] parata est?
    • Hoelang stellen het partijkartel en de baantjescarrousel ons geduld nog op de proef terwijl het vlaggenschip van de renaissancevloot klaarligt?
    • How long are the party cartel and the job carousel going to abuse our patience, when the flagship of renaissance is ready to set sail?
    • 60th Plenary Session of the Tweede Kamer. Maiden speech in Parliament on 28 March 2017.
    • Modelled after the opening line of Cicero’s famous Catiline Orations: Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra?
      • In English: “How long will you, Catiline, abuse our patience?”
    • Baudet makes several grammatical mistakes, namely, declining factio in the accusative singular factionem instead of the genitive plural factionum, conjugating abutor, abuti in the third-person singular present active indicative abutitur instead of the third-person plural present abutuntur or the third-person plural future abutentur, and declining proficiscor into the accusative gerund as *profiscendum instead of proficiscendum.
      • A grammatically correct version would read: Quo usque tandem factionum cartellum et officiorum machina patientia nostra abutuntur dum navis praetoria resurrectionis ad proficiscendum parata est?
