Quotes[edit]

  • Vrouwen willen geen lieve mannen, ze willen een bruut die ze keihard neukt
    • Translation: Women don't want any dear men, they want a brutal guy who fucks them hard
    • Ravage (2 November 2001)
  • I don't hate Islam. I consider it a backward culture. I have travelled much in the world. And wherever Islam rules, it's just terrible. All the hypocrisy. It's a bit like those old reformed protestants. The Reformed lie all the time. And why is that? Because they have standards and values that are so high that you can't humanly maintain them. You also see that in that Muslim culture. Then look at the Netherlands. In what country could an electoral leader of such a large movement as mine be openly homosexual? How wonderful that that's possible. That's something that one can be proud of. And I'd like to keep it that way, thank you very much.
    • de Volkskrant (9 February 2002). Fortuyn was expelled from the Liveable Netherlands party for making the statement. The Dutch word achterlijk ("backward") can also be an insult (comparable to "retarded"), though Fortuyn denied intending to use the word in this way.
  • If you could see what I get in my mailbox every now and then, regarding threats, and so on, well that doesn't exactly cheer you up, and the Dutch government – and I think it's a 'bloody shame' – helps create a climate demonizing me personally. And if something were to happen to me – and I'm glad that you're giving me the chance (to say this) – if something were to happen to me, then they will be partly responsible, and they can't just walk away saying "I'm not the one who committed the attack." They helped to create this climate (this atmosphere), and it needs to stop.
    • Appearance on the Dutch-TV program "Jensen!", a couple of months before being assassinated [1]
  • I will not change my opinion, dear people, it is 5 minutes before twelve. Not just here in Holland. but in the whole of Europe. And is that what you want? I take my stand for this country, that which has been build up in the last five or six centuries. Damn it, we have a fifth column... Okay, let me tell you now straight the way it is! A fifth column of people who want to destroy this country! I will not go for that, and I say, "you can stay here, but you must adapt." I must hear "Allah is great", that I am a "dirty pig"... you are a "Christian dog". That is what they say, and you think that is okay... And I have so far been very reserved. I have never repeated that... but you accept being walked over, and I will not let that happen anymore. And that's where I get all those seats from (in the polls). Because this country is fed up! ... C'est ça! That is what I stand for. And if I must express that otherwise, well, fine... but it is about your children, your grandchildren. For what else is this about? Must I explain more here? I can not do it any other way, and will not do it any other way. Then I would rather be finished off. Okay, fine... but the problem sir, will remain. That will remain. People have had more than enough of it. Damn it, in my city, Moroccan boys, Turkish boys... who do not rob the Turks, the Moroccans, but rob you and me and little old ladies. And the police? What they do? Damn it... nothing. They tell you: "If you say that, you discriminate". And that is what I express from the Dutch people. And I stand for it, I stand for it. Is that not allowed? Okay, I respect that. C'est ça [That’s all].

  • Ik ben een driftkop, wat is daar mis mee?
    • Translation: I'm a hothead, what's wrong with that?
    • Gay Krant, issue 458 (April 2002)
  • Muslims have a very bad attitude to homosexuality, they're very intolerant ... And women. For them women are second class citizens. What we are witnessing now is a clash of civilisations, not just between states but within them.
    • Interview with BBC reporter Kirsty Lang (4 May 2002)
  • I'm not anti-Muslim, I'm not anti-immigration; I'm saying we've got big problems in our cities. It's not very smart to make the problem bigger by letting in millions more immigrants from rural Muslim cultures that don't assimilate.
