A Dutch Rub

It is truly a shame that the European left is so intimidated by any group that expresses political opinions anywhere right of socialist that they feel the need to murder rightist political leaders. Dutch party leader Pim Fortuyn was gunned down after a radio interview today. The coincident timing of the shooting (nine days before the Dutch election) and the French election to defeat Le Pen begs the conclusion that some leftist Dutchman feared the political right coming to his own country so much he committed murder. The self-congratulatory socialist left in Europe, that spends so much time blathering witlessly about the importance of human rights and tolerance, obviously makes an exception for their nascent political opposition from the right.
