A wave of oppression not seen since the Soviet-era has been unleashed against one of Slovakia’s most popular parties, Marian Kotleba’s People’s Party – Our Slovakia (L’SNS).
The People’s Party has grown in recent years to become a force to reckon with. In the 2019 Presidential race, Kotleba won an impressive 10.39% of the vote, coming in 4th out of 16 candidates. During the same year, the party came in third during European Parliamentary Elections with 12.07% of the vote, just behind the two plutocratic parties Smer-SD (15.72%) and PS/SPOLU (20.11%).
During national parliamentary elections last February, L’SNS increased its standing from 14 seats to 17, with 229,581 votes.
The popularity of L’SNS activists has provoked outrage from powerful Jewish organizations in the United States and the European Union.
The “anti-racism” government committee VRAX, controlled by Jan Orlovsky of the Jewish Wall Street speculator George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, has converted the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) into a secret police outfit with a department specializing in prosecuting “extremists.” This effort has been specifically targeting L’SNS parliament members who are presenting the new yet already unpopular neo-liberal government political resistance.
Kotleba was caught in their net in 2019, when he handed out checks to poor families for the sum of 1,488 Euros. The Slovakian state is pursuing this opposition party leader’s gesture as an “extremist hate crime.” Their reasoning is that the number 1488 can be interpreted as a reference to pro-white sentiment. Kotleba’s trial was set to begin today but was postponed due to COVID-19.
The war on critics of the ruling government intensified last month when the secret police orchestrated a raid against a former L’SNS parliamentary candidate Ratislav Rogel and 8 others.
Rogel was targeted by NAKA for his work as a dissident musician in the patriotic rock band Kratky Proces. According to documents obtained by a Slovak speaker for National Justice, Rogel and the other men are being charged for disseminating extremism, specifically for three rock albums they recorded and sold over a 30 year period. If they are convicted, they could face a draconian 8 years in prison.
Rogel and Kratky Proces, which was formed in Communist Czechoslovakia in 1988, do not appear to have ever been subjected to this type of police aggression until now.
For many years, liberal Eastern European countries have been relatively reluctant to charge individuals for political crimes due to their communist histories. Now that nationalists like Rogel and Kotleba are rising in popularity the ruling class is being pressured by Brussels and Washington to use desperate force to silence them.
Last week President Zuzana Čaputová threatened Kotleba and L’SNS at a ceremony commemorating the “Slovak National Uprising” in World War II through gesturing against living “Nazi collaborators.”
In late August 1944, a group of disproportionately Jewish communist guerrillas led by NKVD agents embarked on a military campaign to overthrow the government of Catholic Priest Josef Tizo, the modern founding father of independent Slovakia who fought on the side of the Axis powers. The reconstituted Czechoslovakian communist state commemorated the Stalin-era holiday every year, a tradition capitalists have now revised as a liberal multiculturalist myth and try to force the public to embrace.
In 2018, over 3/4 of the Slovak population felt that the communist government that was dissolved in 1989 had a superior economy, effectively policed gypsy violence and encouraged more national solidarity than the current globalist and anti-racist European Union consensus.
A poll released last June found that 38% of Slovaks strongly prefer a dictatorship over liberal-plutocracy.
The Slovak state’s jailing of political opponents only confirms what many Slovaks are already thinking: that modern Slovakia politically functions just like it did under communism, only this time without any of the upsides.
