Mark Steyn on the news coverage of Geert Wilders

Putting to one side the stupidity of the Dutch establishment in attempting to criminalize legitimate political opposition, one is struck by the media boilerplate: Wilders is the "extreme" "far-right" "fringe", but the parties he beats are the "mainstream"? That there is a lot of what's wrong with the European political discourse. Maybe he only seems so "extreme" and "far" because you're the one out on the fringe.
It does seem curious. Of course, they also called Pym Fortuyn a far-right winger, even tho he was a gay socialist, just becuse he argued against letting Islamists take over the country.
