Flanders oppressed since 1830

La Dernière Heure spreads anti-Flemish propaganda

La Dernière Heure , a daily French-language Belgian newspaper titled yesterday on their front page a remarkable header: ‘Beaten up because he can’t speak Flemish’.  Reading inside the newspaper the details of this story reveals that everything was about a heated discussion regarding the girl friend of the Portugese victim leading to a fight. On the same cover of the newspaper a picture of Bart De Wever with another tendentious header “Discover the hidden face of Bart De Wever’ was published, perfectly blending these two pieces of misinformation together. Bart De Wever is the leader of the N-VA (New Flemish Alliance) who had won last Sunday’s elections in Flanders.
