Yall are a bunch of wankers!

Pete Hoekstra

My attention was drawn upon this character by the local news media who mentioned him being born in Groningen (but his parents decided Groningen was no place for them), and being a Trump candidate for Director of the CIA.

He looks like a fine piece of work: presenting 'evidence' for WMD in Iraq, racist slurs, Tea Party Caucus.

But maybe his Wikipedia page is biased?

Sounds bad, but if we want Groningen represented in the top of US government we are going have to be willing to compromise!

I always tell people about this when they said that Trump is an anti-Groningenite.

The House Intelligence Committee Chairman that succeeded him is Dutch Ruppersberger. So another Dutch connection here. Hmmmmm...

I worked in Dordrecht for a while, the Dutch are cool, the porn shop guy used to sit outside his shop with a chess board.

So like all Dutch people, he is an aggressive colonialist war hawk who routinely lies and demonizes the cultures he wishes to invade next. Great, great.

He is one of the Michigan boys...woooohoooo! Well there are many people with Dutch ancestry on the west side of Michigan. I have friends in grad school who had Dutch ancestry. The popular grocery store in Michigan is Meijer.
