The bias is really disgusting in this article.
So much for 'objective' news reporting...
If you look at the title of the article, you get a hint of their opinion of Mr. Wilders.
Plus there are other not so subtle hints, like:
"No fan of understatement, Wilders wore a shiny black Armani suit and a
bright green tie. But it was his trademark platinum-blond pompadour that
stood out, a haircut that many in the Netherlands compare to Donald
Trump’s rat’s nest. Wilders may look just as cartoonish as The Donald.
But unlike Trump, he’s a legitimate force in politics."
Then they pull out an expert, for an expert opinion.
This expert has found the reason why they believe Wilders is so yucky: BECAUSE COLONIALISM.
What would we do without experts and research?
"On some level, Van Leeuwen says, whether Wilders believes it or not,
he’s blaming Muslims for what happened to his family and seeking
retribution. “He wants to go back to the way the borders were drawn
before the war. Before decolonization,” she says, referring to the
period before Indonesia claimed its independence and was still a Dutch
colony, called the Netherlands-Indies. “He once had serious plans to
return parts of Belgium to ‘Greater’ Holland.” He dyes his hair, she
thinks, to disguise his Indonesian roots."
And apparently, "Wilders also owes his success to a nuanced, Tea-Party brand of Islamophobia."
Read the whole thing. I was chuckling when I read it.
