They should expel him.

He's already in The Hague. Just change his venue to the ICC.

I still can't believe that the current ambassador to Denmark starred in an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

They could shut down the embassy and expel everyone working there from the country.  That would be nice.

The Dutch can kick his ass out..It's that easy....They can decided if he is ambassador or not.
If they don't recognize him as such, then he's no one, and they can tell him to leave their soil.

Being an ambassador doesn't give you carte blanche..It might get you out of parking or speeding tickets,
but the host country can boot your ass out anytime..

In a radio interview Tuesday, Baudet dismissed the reports as a "conspiracy theory," later suggesting on Twitter that journalists should look into the "actual support" that left-wing parties receive from U.S. billionaire George Soros.

PNG would be appropriate, but unlikely. The Netherlands could recall their ambassador for consultations, which will signal to the US that it's not business as usual. I imagine the Dutch ambassador already paid a visit to Foggy Bottom to tell them how P.O.'d they are.The US wil make some placating noises but otherwise ignore the issue because it doesn't give a hoot about its allies.

The best part about that bit is that after he tried to deny he said this, refused to acknowledge his past statements, and tried to change the subject by asking other reporters for for their question, half a dozen reporters in a row all asked him the same, refusing to let him change the subject: "This is the Netherlands, you have to answer questions"

/He did back peddle and acknowledge his farkup a few days later
//Despite being born in the Netherlands himself, he's one of the worst possible picks for the position: His family moved to the US in the 50s, and he's a religious homophobic trumper, while the Netherlands itself is one of the least religious, most gay-friendly liberal countries out there

I attended a talk given by Hoekstra once at our local university here. With only university students and staff in attendance, and no cameras present he was surprisingly measured and level-headed. He was also downright candid about how he was elected back when he was in congress where he explained that many representatives like him were elected by a minority of a minority that totaled maybe 8% of the people he was supposed to represent.

I was expecting a deranged wingnut ranting about the imminent coming of sharia-communism because we have things like same-sex marriage, universal healthcare, and strict gun control. It made me wonder how much of that insanity is just an act to pander to Conservative voters who are genuinely deranged at this stage.

Aside from his troubled start here in the NL, he seemed to be keeping his head down. Until now...
Trump's ambassador to Germany has been far worse, and if Hoekstra goes in that direction I hope our government can muster the fortitude to expel the bastard.

Wilders and Baudet are absolute racist and islamophobic trash so Hoekstra is hanging with his own
