Party leader of D66 Sigrid Kaag tweeted about the poster: “There is a special responsibility on MPs, on ministers, to set a good example, not to let the word be poisonous.” She thus refers to the May 4 lecture that Arnon Grunberg gave last year. “We must also act on those words in 2021. This is a low point. Again. ”, Says Kaag.

Lilianne Ploumen, party leader of the PvdA says: „Disgusting and foul than foul. SP party leader Lilian Marijnissen wonders: “How sad are you to abuse the immense suffering of so many people, a pitch-black period in our history, to get attention? It’s disgusting and I hope everyone will speak up against it. ” Member of Parliament for the SP Peter Kwint tweeted: “What bastards they are.”

‘Very, very wrong’

Group chairman Gert-Jan Segers of the ChristenUnie thinks it is “unbelievable.” He agrees with another twitterer, Sonny Spek, who says: “Associating our Liberation Day with tackling the corona crisis is disgusting and does not reflect any historical awareness.” VVD MP Dilan Yesilgöz calls the poster “very, very wrong.”

Former party leader of the PvdA Lodewijk Asscher says he is “seething”. “This is why. That spit on our history in their crazed attention-grabbing. Comparing the spoiled wrong. The shabby impertinence to smear the memory of many. ” Member of Parliament D66 Paul van Meenen calls the poster “dirty, sad, dangerous.”

‘Misplaced’

At Hart van Nederland, the CIDI, which stands up for the interests of Israel and Jews, said it was baffled by the poster. “It is misplaced,” director Hanna Luden told Hart van Nederland. “They don’t understand the difference between World War II and now. It is incomparable. I suspect Forum seeking thrills to make their point. ” Luden cannot reach it with her head. “It’s unheard of and unacceptable. It shows a lot of disrespect towards everyone who has experienced the war. ”

Hart van Nederland also quotes Viruswaarheid frontman Willem Engel, who says he fully supports the poster. “Democracy will cease to exist in 2020,” he refers to the freedom-restricting corona measures.
