Paul Verhoeven on Dutch “left-fascist” cultural establishment


it was more that the circumstances
in Holland in the eighties started to change all these movies in Holland I made with subsidies of the government otherwise it is too expensive for producers so you get forty, fifty, sixty percent from the government, for the budget and the committees that give you the money – I’m sure you know all about committees – this is one of them that became more and more political and then I mean left-wing political, which in this case nearly is equal to leftist fascism it became much more difficult to get money for normal movies it had to be culturally relevant or intellectually relevant, sociologically relevant and that’s not how I thought about moviemaking so they started to refuse me money although the movie I had made were extremely successful and the most successful in fact, ever made in Holland that was not something you could use as a bonus, that would not help you at all the fact that it was successful meant it
was not good: culturally, intellectually, artistically,

  1. `De nieuwe fascisten noemen zich anti-fascisten´ (Winston Churchil). Klopt helemaal. Links zijn de grootste fascisten die er rondlopen. Doe wat ik zeg, niet: doe wat ik doe.

Politieke terreur: in elke zin 2x het woord racisme en discriminatie.
