Prime Minister Rutte has denounced the attack on Baudet and emphasized the need for the public to avoid politicians. The Dutch far-right party, Forum for Democracy (FvD), candidate Thierry Baudet, has spoken out against the attack he experienced, labeling it a “political attack” based on his ideology. Baudet has stressed the importance of standing firm in the face of violence and adhering to the FvD’s principles.
The incident occurred at a café in Groningen where Baudet was holding a campaign event. He was hit on the head with a glass bottle by a young minor, who was subsequently detained by police. Baudet believes that the attack may have come from an Antifa group and has prompted him to review his security team and measures.
The incident has garnered widespread condemnation from many politicians in the country, with Prime Minister Rutte calling it “totally unacceptable.” He urged people to stay away from politicians following this incident. Previously, Baudet had experienced aggression in Belgium and heightened his security measures as a result.
The far-right candidate’s refusal to yield to violence and his support from other politicians and Prime Minister Rutte have highlighted the importance of respecting and protecting political figures, regardless of their ideologies.
