Vlaams Belang advocates for “full and unconditional amnesty for people convicted for collaboration with Nazi Germany after World War II” and the “revocation of anti-racism, anti-Negationism and anti-discrimination legislation on the grounds of free speech.”
The party includes holocaust deniers and anti-semites, but in recent years the leadership tried to pretend to be philo-semitic and pro-Israel.
Vlaams Belang leaders also meet with Holocaust deniers and anti-semites like Le Pen and Bruno Gollnisch and the American Jew-hater Pat Buchanan.
The picture shows LePen, Holocaust denier Bruno Gallnisch, DeWinter and Vanhecke at Karel Dillen’s funeral. Karel Dillen described himself as a “passive” collaborator of the nazi regime. He translated the anti-semitic “Nuremberg ou la terre promise”, a holocaust denial book.
The Vlaams Belang also hold events at a neonazi pub. The pub, De Leeuw van Vlaanderen, has a sign saying “De Beest”—with a letter S that’s taken from the Nazi SS insignia.
