By 1668, the heroic Dutch resistance to the Spanish Inquisition was 100 years behind them. The oligarchical disease began to take hold in earnest with the founding of the Dutch East India Company in 1602 and the West India Company in 1621. The Dirty Dutch working with the treacherous Venetians and British (aka Perfide Albion), began building their empire, based on drug-running, slave running (sometimes with a mortality rate between 70 to 90%), and ruthless murder, mutilation and enslavement of less-technologically developed people. Gone was ancient idealism, offering shelter to the persecuted and the oppressed, gone with the Pilgrim Fathers who were forced to leave Leiden in 1620 after having found refuge there from 1609.

By 1668 double-cross is the order of the day for the dirty Dutch; in 1668 they double-cross their late allies, the French, and ally with their late foes, Perfide Albion, against France, foreshadowing the merging of England and Holland under a supranational, imperial oligarchy.

Only four years later, on April 7, 1672, All Hell breaks loose. The British in jolly good form, double-cross their late Dutch allies, and join the French in a war against Holland. (Meantime, the British double-cross their new French allies by promising an amphibious attack on Holland which never happens). France had been a force for the good but had been weakened by the marginalization of the great finance minister Colbert, and the manipulation of King Louis XIV by France’s own imperial, pro-war faction .

In July 1672, showing the mettle that would serve him to commit genocide against the Irish and the Scots, the prince of Orange double-crosses the leaders of the Dutch peace faction, the man who had been his mentor from boyhood, Johan de Witt and Johan’s brother Cornelis, and has them ripped to pieces by an Orange mob. The Orange lovers then sell, some say devour, the de Witts’ body parts.

In 1677, after passing the parricide test, William of Orange, a mere prince, is deemed worthy of representing the oligarchical interests of both countries: he is married to his cousin Mary, daughter of the future James II of England.

By 1688, the British oligarchs, on a Protestant vs. Catholic pretext, invite William to double-cross his father-in-law, invade England and unite the crowns of England and Holland under a soul-less oligarch, masquerading as a hard-boiled and fanatic Protestant, double-crossing the true national interests of the hapless inhabitants of both countries, not to mention Scotland and Ireland.

Today, with the BRICS gathering strength like a tsunami, the world is showing how weary it is of bearing the double-cross of the Anglo-Dutch Empire.

    Excellent article, Gene. This is history deliberately hidden from much of the world, not least from those in England and Holland. What a disgusting painting though. Looks like the inside of an abattoir. Perhaps that’s where the Orangemen got their inspiration – from the slaughterhouse.

    Here, in the modern slave-plantation we call England, the local council decided not to celebrate Christmas as it normally did, by putting on a Santa’s Grotto for the kids.

    Instead the council projected a slide-show on the town-walls showing King Billie’s troops from 1689. Returning to the town and marching triumphantly through the streets led by a Billy Goat. Oh what fun. Shame they didn’t project that picture of the brothers De Witt on the walls; it might just have woken a few people up.

    Keep up the good work!
