Far-right, even racist views go mainstream in Central Europe

Far-right, even racist views go mainstream in Central Europe:

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — The Croatian president thanks Argentina for taking in notorious pro-Nazi war criminals after World War II. In Bulgaria, a top politician calls the country’s Roma minority “ferocious humanoids.” And Hungary’s prime minister declares the “color” of Europeans should not mix with that of Africans or Arabs.

Ever since WWII, such views were taboo in Europe, confined to the far-right fringes. Today they are openly expressed by mainstream political leaders in parts of Central and Eastern Europe, part of a populist surge in the face of globalization and mass migration.

“Wind of change.
Defiance of impractical leftist dogma will be ridiculed as fascist patriotism, and that labelling will ignite civil unrest by ordinary civilians wanting a national identity to be proud of, not a politically watered down eunuch.”

Croatian conservatives march against transgender rights in Zagreb

Croatian conservatives march against transgender rights in Zagreb:

Thousands of conservative Croatian protesters have taken to the streets of Zagreb to speak out against a treaty designed to combat violence against women. Activists are unhappy that the legislation provides for transgender people.

Protesters sang songs as they marched through the Croatian capital, chanting slogans critical of the Istanbul Convention, the European treaty adopted by Croatia’s conservative government earlier this week. The legislation defines gender as “social roles, behaviors, activities and characteristics that a particular society considers appropriate for women and men.”  Its opponents have said that the European treaty introduces “a third gender” and indirectly legalizes gay marriage.

Convicted Croat War Criminal Dies After Drinking Poison In Hague Court

Convicted Croat War Criminal Dies After Drinking Poison In Hague Court:

A Bosnian Croat wartime commander died on Wednesday shortly after he drank poison, seconds after U.N. appeals judges upheld his 20-year sentence for war crimes against Bosnian Muslims.

Slobodan Praljak, 72, a former wartime leader, tilted back his head and took a swing from a flask or glass as the judge read out the verdict. The man’s defense lawyer then told the court that the accused had “taken poison.” The presiding judge stopped the proceedings and ordered a doctor to be called, Reuters reports.

“I just drank poison,” he said. “I am not a war criminal. I oppose this conviction.”

Praljak sat back down and slumped in his chair, a lawyer who was in the courtroom at the time said. The presiding judge suspended the hearing and called for a doctor. An ambulance was at the building and paramedics went to the courtroom.

“Could the Hague Courts be under instruction to create sparks?

The campaign to punish Serbs & Croats for wanting their own countries for themselves, and to make them pay for their loyalty to Mother Russia, is causing upset, which ties in with the prophesies.”

The Latest: UN prosecutors urge Croatia to accept findings:

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The Latest on rulings at the U.N. war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (all times local): 7:10 p.m. Prosecutors at a United Nations war crimes tribunal are welcoming an appeals panel’s judgment upholding the convictions of six Bosnian Croat military and political leaders.

A written statement from the tribunal’s prosecution said the convictions underscore Zagreb’s control over rebel Croat forces responsible for crimes in Bosnia during the Balkan wars of the 1990s. The former leaders were back before the U.N. International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia on Wednesday to hear the outcome of their appeals. They were all found guilty of war crimes for trying to establish a Croat mini-state in Bosnia.
