Geert Wilders’ “Moroccan Parliament” tweet launches new meme
On Thursday PVV leader Geert Wilders posted a picture of a grandstand full of people in white robes on Twitter. "This is the Moroccan parliament", he wrote. The tweet provoked a a stream of reactions from people who wanted to show Wilders what other things are.
According to RTL Nieuws, Wilders' tweet was in response to a tweet from PVV parliamentarian Machiel de Graaf. De Graaf commented on PvdA MP Khadija Arib's candidacy for Tweede Kamer president. "Someone who is subordinate to the king of Morocco must not be president of the Dutch Tweede Kamer", De Graaf tweeted.
Hundreds of people decided this was a good time to show the PVV leader what other things are. The firs reply was a picture of a croissant. "This is a croissant", the tweed read. "This is a pug", "this is another pug", "this is a black pug", "this is a screenshot of your tweet", "this is a chair in South Africa", "this is my desk", "this is my father's day gift', "this is the naked but of Justin Bieber" and "this is a beer with dentures in it", is just some of the many responses.
