When El Léñas arrived at the Slovak-Ukrainian border to help transport refugees (specifically two mothers with children) to the Czech Republic, to safety, one of the first photos she used to inform us about her current situation was this one:Continue reading
Czech and long-time pro-Russian President Miloš Zeman has performed an unexpected and somewhat desperate somersault of opinion, calling his friend Putin a lunatic, hoisting the Ukrainian flag at Prague Castle, and planning to award Ukrainian President Zelensky the Czech Republic’s highest state honour, the Order of the White Lion.
A number of leading Czech officials, including the presidents of both chambers of Parliament, the president of the Constitutional Court, and at least three university rectors, have announced that they will not attend the event of the awarding of state honours because of Zeman’s past warm relations with Vladimir Putin’s Russia and his frequent attempts to discredit Czech intelligence services warning of Russia’s hostile actions in the country.
Has our “favourite” Cardinal Dominik Duka woken up together with the President?
Let us recall how, at the end of 2018, he responded to the question of whether or not he supported the arrival of fifty orphans – refugees from Syria – to the Czech Republic:
“The Archbishop of Olomouc and the Charity of the Czech Republic are dealing with these matters. (…) I am unable to intervene in this debate on the merits.”
“Yes, generally speaking, we all know that it is necessary to help those in need, but on the other hand, we also know that this is to some extent a political struggle these days. For that reason, I cannot answer.”
Statement of the Czech Skeptics’ Club Sisyfos on the long-term activities of Zdravé fórum (Healthy Forum) and its offshoots
The information channels of the Zdravé fórum (Healthy Forum) show typical characteristics of a disinformation spreader. These characteristics are in particular:
1) Sharing disinformation and problematic websites.
Zdravé fórum intensively shares the content of the following disinformation or highly problematic media.
At first – quick numbers: 8275 confirmed cases, 5058 recovered and 290 dead in Czech Republic.
“SARS-CoV-2-CZ-Preval” Study shows that the degree of immunization of the Czech population is very low. In the most affected localities does not reach the value of 4% – 5%. 27000 tested people revealed 107 positive cases.
The big news is that “Scientists from the Czech Republic top institutes have joined forces to create the new vaccine”. As Czech Health Minister Adam Vojtěch (ANO) said 4.5.2020.
Czech Rep. is still struggling with the ratification of the Istanbul Convention (Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence).
Three changes in Czech law are still waiting to be accepted – penalties for forced marriages, forced sterilization and the adjustment of the limitation period for prosecution for female circumcision. There is no reason to obstruct you can say.
Civic initiative “Traditional Czech family” went into holy battle under their motto “FAMILY – NATION – PEACE” to save traditional family model father-mother-child:
“By this transnational mechanism children will be stolen from any family and it is irreversible!
Information is, of course, strictly classified so the public does not know about the crimes of this neo-fascist system!
Ratifying the Istanbul Convention is worse than signing the death sentence over the countless defenseless children!”
Andrej Babiš, billionaire, media mogul, anti-establishment populist, former totalitarian state police agent, became first prosecuted prime minister in history of Czech Republic.
He gained support of two other politic parties – Communists (KSCM) and Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD).
Both parties follow common anti-EU and anti-democratic course, SPD also spreads anti-immigrant mood. (EUROSTAT: 28 asylum seekers per million inhabitants of Czech Rep.!)
Does it matter to him whether the government gets the trust?
“I’m talking about people, not about what matters. You are dealing with “what matters”, in your bubble-journalistic world.” Babiš replied.
Czech democracy is dying and Václav Havel has been forgotten.
