“Boomsma Commander in Chief of the Gutmenschen Battalion”

The discussion that ignited the “joke” of Johan Derksen a few weeks ago seems to be the basis for many new arguments. Youp van ‘t Hek, for example, is very vocal against Arie Boomsma. Boomsma was one of the BNs who most urged advertisers to Veronica Inside to boycott. This to the dismay of Van ‘t Hek.

“Arie is good. It is good on all sides. Jesus Christ how good our Arie is. He is the commander in chief of the ever-expanding gutmen battalion, ”writes the comedian in his new column. “The storm has now come to an end Veronica Inside almost lie down. Although? The program disappears thanks to Arie and that sneaky Norbert (ter Hall, ed.). Well done guys. Thank you on behalf of the whole of the Netherlands! And God is also proud of you! ”

According to the comedian, types like Boomsma and Ter Hall strike all the humor out of society in this way. “I’m terrified Arie sees me laughing. Then he immediately draws his conclusions. I almost only laugh at the wrong humor. Humor that does not fit into the current finicky zeitgeist. And everyone knows: the best jokes grow on the edge of the ravine. But if Arie hears or sees me laughing at a wrong joke, then I am the Sjaak. Or even more: when he hears me say something sexist, he immediately rings the decency bell. Then he will call advertisers together with Norbert. ”

Boomsma response

Boomsma let criticism from others – such as Wim Kieft and Marcel van Roosmalen – pass, but he had to respond to this column. “You can say racist things. But why would you want to? Calling me, and other people who open their mouths when someone shouts racist things, an NSB. That is allowed. You may miss the irony in that comment. A white, right-wing part of society that struggles with minorities because of skin color or orientation. White people who throw themselves wildly around with terms such as “virtue” and the German “Gutmensch”. The irony is that with such a troll army you silence anyone who thinks differently from you. Then we hope together that people with an uneasy opinion will now remain silent for fear of being discussed, flooded with anger that in most cases actually comes from somewhere else. ”

It usually takes little effort for me not to respond to columns and comments in which I am discussed. Some people think I’m stupid, other people like me. It does not matter. You can find what you want, and fortunately you can also say what you want in this country. You can shout racist things. But why would you want to? You may even, if the muses let you down, make a well-worn comparison with the wartime in a debate about current events. Calling me, and other people who open their mouths when someone shouts racist things, an NSB. That is allowed. You may miss the irony in that comment. A white, right-wing part of society that struggles with minorities because of skin color or orientation. White people who throw themselves wildly around with terms such as “virtue” and the German “Gutmensch”. The irony is that with such a troll army you silence anyone who thinks differently from you. Then hoping together that people with an uneasy opinion will now remain silent for fear of being discussed, flooded with anger that in most cases actually comes from somewhere else. And it must be said; keeping silent saves a lot of anxiety and a lot of negative energy. But you know, if everyone is silent for fear of noticing, nothing ever changes. We can still mention that particular period in our history, when it was also kept silent while minorities passed by, but that is too easy. So let me not do that for a while. And yet respond today. Easy is usually not the right way.

Enjoy the child of concern

Van ‘t Hek further supports René van der Gijp and Derksen, who were not pleased with the performance of presenter Wilfred Genee. “When I see Genee standing in front of an Albert Heijn with a Homeless newspaper in a year, he won’t get a cent from me. Just as I will no longer enter the Appie. Civil decency. “

The key to the future of the program seems to lie around Genee’s position. Although many think that Veronica Inside still has a future, the question is whether that will be with the same presenter.
