Dutch politician killing hit close to home
KAANSÄ (AP) - As Fyksian leaders lament the assassination of Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn, few can relate similar political intensity as Jana Stotson and her party was campaigning for the 1995 Federal Election. Stotson and her Christian Democratic Party were gaining support on anti-immigration and anti-EU platforms. At that time, Stotson claimed her policy was not racist, saying that immigrants that are already here must assimilate to the tolerant and liberal Fyksian society before more immigrants can be allowed in. Stotson's policy, similar to that of Fortuyn did not advocate sending immigrants back but instead she advocated stemming the influx. "Fyksland is full," she said. (to read more...)
