Geert Wilders does well in the Netherlands...

Very nice to see...
The Dutch parliamentary election is too close to call. Initial exit polls announced after voting bureaus closed at 9:00 pm indicate the Labour Party and the free-market liberal VVD Party in a neck-and-neck race - 31 seats each. Official results are not expected before midnight.

Turnout was the lowest in years as heavy rain showers may have kept some voters at home. Seventy-four percent of eligible voters cast a ballot.

Far-right populist Geert Wilders has done better than expected. The initial exit polls give his Freedom Party 22 seats in parliament. That is significantly more than the opinion polls indicated in the last days of campaigning. And it more than doubles the nine seats they won in the last election.
Geert Wilders is not far right - he is actually incredibly supportive of gay rights. He should be described as more of a libertarian...

How about a person who deeply cares about personal and economic freedom, and who works hard to support the rights of gay people???
