What made the Dutchman a conqueror? Was it his Frankish genes? Because indeed, they are the greatest people on the planet.
>>6288202I can admit the Dutch are good people and won many great victories but don’t you talk about how the glorious revolution was a “conquest”
>>6288202their insatiable thirst for money
>>6288299tulipcoin has gone up 500% in the last three months
>>6288214Right? Conquering England is not an achievement at all, call back when you take Germany, France, Italy and Austria toot. French
>>6288202You are a nation of traders and merchants majority of your conquest was primitive tribes or weak underdeveloped kingdom, still I admit your strength and cunning

>>6288307Seeing how tulipmania was a meme that had little effect on the colony and was mostly among autistic tulip collector enthusiasts the comparison with bitcoins is apt. But a lot of these tulip tards realized they could pau back eachothers debts so they just waived them
Can anyone explain the dutch flag upper color sometimes I see it organ other times I see it red what is the reason Behind this
>>6289280The orange coloured flag is the Prince’s Flag. This flag is the predecessor to the modern flag. The flag was changed because the orange would fade to red over time.
>>6288969I wouldn't call the kingdoms on Indonesia underdeveloped, although their glory days were indeed gone since the fall of Majapahit
forget the swiss. the dutch are the true european kikes. they difamed spain to the point that many of the lies were believed.
>>6288202Having arguably the most beautiful women in the world to impress could have been a strong motivating factor.
>>6289737you have low standart if you think that woman is beautiful
>>6289722this actually. its amazing how british and dutch propaganda is still so prevalent in views regarding the portugese and spanish empires.My favorite meme is the spanish inquisition.
>>6289737dutch women are just taller anglos nothx
>>6289133The comparison isn't really apt at all when you consider you can at least use bitcoin to buy drugs and gamble on casinos without banks tracking your suspicious activity. Tulips on the other hand are literally useless and had no reason to be worth as much as they were.
>>6289737Why are Dutch women god tier of the Germanic women?German women low tier, Anglo women are mid tier, Scandi women are high tier, Dutch women are on another level.The golden hair, the deep blue eyes.

>>6288202Why can’t the “greatest people”(LOL) resist their invaders and extinction?
>>6289971>>>/pol/, don't apply your failing American idpol to well-off European nations
>>6288202Ummm the dutch never conquered anything they just took over managerial responsibilities of everyone else's colonial leftovers. As for war goes the only time they managed victories was when the great powers were distracted with each other. Holland couldn't even put Belgium in their place one on one lmfao
>>6290020>all of indonesia>colonial leftoversare you an asshurt portugues or just a general retard?
>>6290084>AAAAAALLLLLLLLL of that sparsely populated archipelago that was already economically dependent on Europeans.Such big boys they are. Real men conquer continents, remember that.
>>6290197>sparsely populatedSo a general retard then.
>>6290197>getting some ex-convicts to build a fortress with a flag in the middle of the desert is what _really_ defines an empire!
>>6290205>>6290220>dutch bois getting triggered that their "empire" was a trading outpost and a bunch of mostly uninhabited islandsThe best part about that colony was royal Dutch shell but the japs took it from you and then armed the Indonesians so now RDS has to pay the former colony for the right to drill. Sad!
>>6290294begone Joao, don't you have autistic African escapades to shill for
>>6290303>Bootybusted dutchboi thinks this post is coming from PortugalIts not like anyone likes Holland bro.

>>6290840De heilige koloniale drie-eenheid: Coen, Van Heutsz en Westerling
The only thing conquered by the Dutch were the sea and the English throne. A nation of barely 2 million at the height of its golden age does not have a whole lot of conquering potential.
>>6290418> implying SpaniardsI'm going to stop you right there.What Spaniards think hasn't been relevant since the 80 years war.>>6292569The Netherlands was the apex of civilization for a century.What other country our size could claim something remotely similar?
>>6288202>What made the Dutchman a conqueror?Nothing, they have no particularly impressive conquests. They were very good sailors and merchants though.

Calvinism is confirmation bias the faith. To gain material is to gain metaphysical, man.

>>6294921You fought for 80 god damn years to get them back. Lmao if you “don’t care about them”.
>>6294921>Has the largest empire in the world>Can't fight off a small group of liberterian merchants>Bankrupt yourself twice trying to fight them during 80 years>Get a shit ton of your colonies and an entire silverfleet stolen by them and there's nothing you could do anymore. >can't even get a functioning economy these days The Spaniards were and are cucks

>>6288202The Dutch are literal traitors to white Europeans. Dutch rebels against the Spanish used to say "Better Turkish (Muslim) than papist (Catholic)" and Dutch privateers joined the Barbary pirates helping them raid Ireland and Iceland to take white European women and sell the Icelandic and Irish women as sex slaves in Ottoman North Africa.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Janszoonhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Abductionshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sack_of_Baltimorehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zymen_Dansekerhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulayman_Reishttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liever_Turks_dan_PaapsDid you know the Dutch forced the Hindu Osing people on Java in Indonesia to convert to Islam and wiped Hinduism out in Java making it all Muslim?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osing_people

>>6289737The Chinese thought Dutch women were hot.>Koxinga took Hambroek's teenage daughter as a concubine, and Dutch women were sold to Chinese soldiers to become their wives, the daily journal of the Dutch fort recorded that "the best were preserved for the use of the commanders, and then sold to the common soldiers>Happy was she that fell to the lot of an unmarried man, being thereby freed from vexations by the Chinese women, who are very jealous of their husbands.>In 1684 some of these Dutch wives were still captives of the Chinese.>Some Dutch physical looks like auburn and red hair among people in regions of south Taiwan are a consequence of this episode of Dutch women becoming concubines to the Chinese commanders.>The Chinese took Dutch women as slave concubines and wives and they were never freed: in 1684 some were reported to be living, in Quemoy a Dutch merchant was contacted with an arrangement to release the prisoners which was proposed by a son of Koxinga's but it came to nothing.>The Chinese officers used the Dutch women they received as concubines.>The Dutch women were used for sexual pleasure by Koxinga's commanders.>This event of Dutch women being distributed to the Chinese soldiers and commanders was recorded in the daily journal of the fort.
>>6288202Tulipniggers are boring
>>6289325>The flag was changed because the orange would fade to red over time.Huh, well that's interesting.I just thought it was just because red dye was cheaper than orange.Although that may still apply, just with a slight better motivation. (why pay more for orange dye if it's gonna turn red anyway)
>>6289971Good job taking the two most cancerous cities in the country as a standard for the entire country.
>>6297373>>6297378Because of course finding an ally in a common enemy is the same as some retard today wanting to import their waifu (though mostly doing it for attention, honestly).>Did you know the Dutch forced the Hindu Osing people on Java in Indonesia to convert to Islam and wiped Hinduism out in Java making it all Muslim?Where the fuck did you read this in the link?>In spite of the Dutch attempts to propagate Islam and Christianity among the Osings, many still stuck to their old beliefs. Today, a large Hindu population still exists among the Osings.>and Dutch privateers joined the Barbary pirates helping them raid Ireland and Iceland>Janszoon was captured in 1618 at Lanzarote (one of the Canary Islands) by Barbary corsairs and taken to Algiers as a captive. There he "turned Turk", or Muslim. Some historians speculate that the conversion was forcedWell whaddya know, some Dutch people got hired by Ottoman privateers because they were able seamen and their governments weren't hostile toward each other. What a surprise.Back to >>>/pol/ you seeting faggot
>>6289971>shows a capital that's basically a containment town for tourists and immigrantsYou couldn't have possibly chosen a lower hanging fruit since it'd have to be on the ground. Literally every first world capital city has foreigners and mutts, yes even Japan.
>>6289325>>6297422The red-white-blue is probably older actually, and predates the revolt, when the geuzen changed the red to orange in relation to william of orange. After that, both were used, for example the navy would fly orange and the VOC would fly red, until the orange fell out of use again. Which may have been because of practical reasons relating to the dye, but possibly also some other reason.tldr; the historical importance people attribute to the prinsenvlag is overblown
>>6289971>Los Angeles = the entirety of America
>>6289971why are Morocco and turkey higher up there than Indonesia?Wasn’t it a Dutch colony?
>>6299950The socialist government of the seventies thought it would be a good idea to import people from morroco and turkey to pay for their welfare schemes. Turns out they consumed more than they produced, so that kind of failed.
>>6299950>>6300088on top of that we also didn't take a lot of people with us out of Indonesia; Moluccans, indigenous colonial army soldiers and their families (large overlap) and Indos (half-Dutch half-Indonesians), and that's about it. Neither of these was a particularly large group.
>>6289133>comparison with bitcoins is aptit's the first speculative bubble in recorded history, that's why it's compared to bitcoin
>>6301161I think we really betrayed that part of Indonesia by going away. East Indonesia did not want to be part of the republic of Indonesia, but we left them there. Now they are second rank citizens and slowly replaced by muslims.
>>6302118blame the UN and the US for letting Sukarno get his proto jap proto commie hands on all of Indonesia (including New Guinea later on) to keep him on 'our' side during the cold war
