A crusader against all the evil, retrogressive aspects of organized religion.
Was killed by an Islamic butcher called Mohammed Boyouri (see goatfucker
), because Muslims were afraid Theo would succeed in exposing the evil hoax of Islam.
A friend of the most hated infidel Ayaan Hirsi Ali
, with whom he made the short film, Submission
, which portrayed the stupidity of Islam and its brutal subjugation of women.
He had responded angrily to the suggestions that he remove his name from the film's credits for security reasons: "If I can't put my name own my own film, in Holland, then Holland isn't Holland any more, and I am not me."
For making the mistake of putting his faith in the freedom in Holland, he was shot 8 times, throat slit, and one of the 2 knives left implanted in his torso had a note pinned to it, chanting death to the West, Jews and Hirsi Ali.
Theo remained true to his self, until his death. But is Holland, Holland any more?
Theo van Gogh was killed by a fanatic Muslim. But we now have a thousand Theos rising up against the marauding tyranny of organized religion.
