Mayor tells Muslims Who Don’t Like “Freedoms” of the West to “F*** Off!”

Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb may soon rival Rudy Giuliani of New York and Boris Johnson of London as one of the most popular mayors in the “free world.”

Mayor Aboutaleb has been the appointed mayor of Rotterdam in the Netherlands since 2008. Mayor Aboutaleb was born in Morroco and migrated to the Netherlands at the age of 15. He quickly assimilated to life in Europe, and while a practicing Muslim, he has become well known for his no-nonsense view of immigrant assimilation and his belief that immigrants should willingly (and happily) assimilate to their new nation… after all, the immigrant came looking for a new home, not the other way around.

In a nationally televised address just a few hours after the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, the mayor candidly told any immigrant (particularly Muslims) who did not like Charlie Hebdo or European freedom to kindly “F*** Off!”

‘It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom,’ Mayor Aboutaleb told Dutch current affairs program Nieuwsuur (Newshour).

‘But if you don’t like freedom, for heaven’s sake pack your bags and leave.

‘If you do not like it here because some humorists you don’t like are making a newspaper, may I then say you can f*** off.

‘This is stupid, this so incomprehensible.  Vanish from the Netherlands if you cannot find your place here. All those well-meaning Muslims here will now be stared at’.



I might not use the language that he did being a prudish conservative Christian… but I appreciate the sentiment. My family came to America in the 1960’s.They were fleeing the evil Castro regime in Cuba hoping to find freedom in the USA. They did, and today our family proudly calls ourselves American. Assimilation is vital for immigration to work. We need more leaders like Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb if the West is to stand against “radical” Islam…
