Finding out how others view one’s own country is a real education.

All reports I saw on the topic indicated that he was referring to immigrants from Islamic countries.

Is that in connection with him being gay, or just him being the anti-immigrant lunatic that he was? And do people know he was not murdered because of his anti-immigrant views?

I don’t know that people outside Holland have much of an image of him at all—he was branded a far-right, anti-immigrant lunatic in most of the news reports I saw about him up to and after his death, and then the issue just kind of vanished.

Enlighten me here please: what’s the deal with ‘the treatment of the murdered Pim Fortuyn’?

He was murdered by a extremely left wing animal rights activist, who feared all his hard work might be in vain if Fortuyn would gain power. It was actually pretty cool that all the extremely right wing people accepted Fortuyn being gay, because they tend to be not very fond of anything different of themselves (gay, feminist, leftwing, muslim, what-have-you).

Does the world outside Holland hold a different picture of him?
