The dutch democracy is dead

Yesterday I got some things off my chest by writing them down. I felt like I had problems. Today, they're nothing compared to what happened in our tiny country. A popular right-wing politician was shot dead in front of a radio-studio. It seems like only a little item on your news, but for the Netherlands, it's a shock. I'm stunned right now. We're so proud of our tolerance, our multi-cultural society. At least, we were.....

I'll be honest, I didn't like the guy. His views were too extreme for my liking. The islam was a backward culture for him, he wanted to close the country to foreigners looking for asylum. But to be shot in the head, throat and chest from close range, just for having an impopular opinion is .... unbelievable. The attacker is currently still on the run. No clues yet to his identity. I think today we've seen the end of our tolerant country. I haven't felt this numb since Sep. 11th. Holland will never be the same.

Farewell Pim Fortuyn. I never liked you, but even you deserved better than this.
