I have always been fascinated by the man (not the politics of)Joerg Haider (58), the far right Austrian populist who died in a car crash October 11 due to speeding after getting drunk in a gay bar. Haider was married with two daughters and his apparent "boyfriend" is quoted by the press: "We had a special relationship that went far beyond friendship." "Joerg and I were connected by something truly special. He was the man of my life."
How can one be far right (which equals intolerant in my opinion) and secretely gay?

I have known several politically conservative super-machos, who were really gay. How they can live with themselves is beyond my understanding. They can become dangerous to openly gay men, because they live in a constant inner tension, which sometimes is projected to the outside as hostility (envy, you can call it) against those, who dare to be honest. Basically, I pity them.

But in the case of Haider the story is a bit different. Austrian friends of mine all knew that he was part of the gay world, but it was a Tabu in his country as long as he was alive. Haider himself never made any homophobic remarks. Look at that incredible picture.

You do not have to look as far as Austria to see odd behaviours: If you ask well informed gays in Malaysia, they all tell you Anwar Ibrahim is part of the gay scene there. It is just that Dr. Mahatir tried to use a fake case against him that backfired badly. It is a bit like in the Shakespeare comedies when they were staged in his days: Often you saw a man playing a woman who dressed up as a man to get her man.

There is another exaple of a right wing politician who was gay: Pim Fortuyn. But contrary to Haider, the Dutch politician was openly gay and very critical towards Islam (and Haider). He was assasinated 2002 by an anima rights activist.

This is a bit a strange discussion. There are gay dog breeders, gay assholes, gay Christians, gay philosophers, very dumb gay, gay Republicans and gay liberal. They just come from all walks of life. There were even gay Nazis (Wikipedia):"Ernst Julius Roehm, (Munich November 28, 1887 July 2, 1934) was a German army officer and Nazi leader. He was a co-founder of the Sturmabteilung ("stormtroopers"; SA), the Nazi Party militia, and later was SA commander. In 1934, he was executed on Hitlers orders as a potential rival." Only after the fall of Roehm the Nazis turned anti gay, sent thousands of gays to concentration camps and gas chambers. The gay thing was conveniently used to get rid of people the Nazis wanted to get rid of.
