Nationalists are on the rise in Slovakia.

The People’s Party – Our Slovakia, led by charismatic rebel Marian Kotleba, is polling at 14% ahead of parliamentary elections next February. This will almost double the seats they won in 2016, putting them ahead of all the competing conservative and liberal parties and making them second only to the ruling socialist party, Smer, which is polling at 18.7%.

Kotleba is campaigning against organized gypsy crime, Zionist power, American influence and the European Union. They have combined this with a pro-family socialist economic platform, which will reassert Slovakian sovereignty, defeat high finance, and put the economy back in the hands of the struggling Slovakian people. The group is known for its volunteer projects and high levels of civic engagement.

They also honor the memory of an important Slovak independence leader, the Catholic Priest Jozef Tiso, who aligned with Germany during World War II.

Their fight for public space and representation has not been easy. After breaking into the parliament in 2016, The People’s Party’s political rivals attempted to ban the organization as a “neo-Nazi” threat to “democracy.” The courts found that banning the group would risk shaking public faith in the system even further.

Kotleba himself has been prosecuted for refusing to mince words about gypsy violence. He was fined 10,000 Euros in 2016 over comments he made on the subject. Last year a member of the People’s Party was expelled from the parliament for “hate speech.”

Statistics on “Roma” crime are difficult to find in the West and concerns on the matter are dismissed by neo-liberals as mindless bigotry, but in the United Kingdom the influx of Slovakian gypsies has caused outcry from locals. In Sheffield, a multicultural district, they beat and rob random elderly people in the street, causing public terror that has even caused black and Pakistani residents to complain.

In Glasgow, a criminal ring led by gypsies with Slovakian citizenship outraged Scottish courts after being busted for kidnapping and selling Slovakian girls to local Pakistani men over a five year period.

Across the continent, the influx of gypsies from Eastern Europe to the West has fueled disenchantment with the European Union’s free movement clause, including in leftist and liberal municipalities. The crisis is real.

Slovak media is now consolidating and targeting Kotleba and his group with propaganda. One instance they are trying to use was when Kotleba introduced a Rock Against Communism band, Biely odpor, who sang a song called “White Slovakia.” This may not have the effect on popular opinion the system expects.

The vice chair of the Progressive Party, the gypsy Irena Biháriová, is planning to use litigation against The People’s Party in a quest to cheat the electoral system. The Progressive Party, a coalition of pro-EU social liberals known for their affluent “hipster” base, is the party represented by president Zuzana Čaputová. While Western media hailed her victory last summer, her party is as of now polling third behind The People’s Party.

  1. Interesting article, as I was unaware of gypsy muggings of the elderly.

  2. Across the continent, the influx of gypsies from Eastern Europe to the West has fueled disenchantment with the European Union’s free movement clause, including in leftist and liberal municipalities. The crisis is real.

    A lot of Western Europeans have only recently become re-acquainted with gypsies. In the Swedish media, they still talk in cryptic terms (“EU migrants” or “Romanians”). Many here still do not know the difference between a Romanian and a gypsy, which is quite amusing and surely a source of irritation for Romanians. We sterilised most of our domestic gypsies in the years between 1930-1970, so my generation of Swedes had forgotten them up until relatively recently.

    The courts found that banning the group would risk shaking public faith in the system even further.

    Golden Dawn was banned from parliament in Greece. I think if sufficient pressure is applied, the same will likely happen in Slovakia. The Slovaks are a small and rather insignificant group, so by virtue of being unknown and unimportant, this has allowed them to fly under the radar. But for how much longer?

    I am not a fan of either party, but I find it deeply problematic that these kinds of measures are taken. Free speech and freedom of association should be absolute values.

    Style tip: “Slovakian” as a demographic descriptor is straight out of the BBC style guide, and is specifically designed for multiculturalism, mainly so as to include Gypsies. For example, I’ll never forget the BBC quoting a ‘Slovakian’ in Northern Ireland: “they hate us because of our dark skin.”

    The Slavic inhabitants of Slovakia are overwhelmingly Slovaks: very fair-skinned. Not ‘Slovakians’. By a linguistic accident, only Slovakia from among the V4 group can have the enemy easily play this game. If they mean a Czech gypsy, they have to write that, not ‘Czechian’. For now.

    Now to really open a can of worms, there is the ~11% Magyar (pronounce ‘madyar’) minority that the multiculturalists were also trying to squeeze into the ‘Slovakian’ descriptor.

    The influx of Gypsies to the West is a real benefit to theEast Europeans who can finally unload them on someone else who wants them, at least theoretically wants them. It’s a golden opportunity and the E Europeans should give tickets to all their Gypsies. Westward-ho, London beckons.

    Many here still do not know the difference between a Romanian and a gypsy, which is quite amusing and surely a source of irritation for Romanians.

    The same is true in the UK, opposition to immigration from Romania is quite high and people associate the country with Gypsies. Surveys have found that opposition to immigration from Romania is almost the same as that of Pakistan. In the run up to the EU referendum, Farage made reference to a ‘group of Romanian men moving in next door’ as a scare tactic, Romanian has become synonymous with Gypsy.

    Gypsies are a true menace. There is an abundance of them Edinburgh at the moment and they form gangs to camp outside stores and beg aggressively for money. They are the only group I can say I have had 100% negative experiences with.

    Reminds me of Castro sending all the criminals of his jails and mental hospitals to America during the Mariel boatlift.

    An interesting poll to take would be; what’s the most undesirable ethnic/racial group to have turn up in your nation?

    a) Jews

    b) Gypsies

    c) Moslems

    d) blacks

    There can be some nice Jews and Blacks, Indians, Pakis and Arabs, and many of them can assimilate to general culture. But it’s hard to have had any kind of positive interaction with gypsies, since they rarely assimilate and basically their only interaction with “gadjos” is to try to beg, scam or rob them. There may be some exceptions, but… I haven’t seen them. Anyway, a problematic population to say the least. I think they win the contest of less desirable peoples.

    Actually, the Gypsy/Roma terms “gadjo” to refer any non-Gypsy also contains the clear sense that these are the “marks” that are fair game for Gypsy/Roma to take advantage of in petty business deals and trading. In this sense the term seems to be virtually parallel to Jews’ reference to “goyim” as both “non-Jew” and approved potential marks. Except that in the latter case the scale is much grander than anything the Roma or Travellers can aspire to.

    The British reference to Dagos, Frogs, Krauts etc. contains the sense of non-Brit and these are more or less a negative racial epithets, but I don’t think they contain the sense that these groups are therefore approved “marks.” That is, I think, because the British, while on the national level earning the epithet “perfidious Albion,” on the personal level hold fairness and decency as one of their cultural markers.

    Perhaps British imperialism is the Gypsy “deal” writ large.

    Are Jews easily scammed by the Punjabi we refer to as Roma? Or Muslims?

    Why are whites vulnerable? Blacks probably are not.

    All we hear about is that dumb, naive, silly, dense whites are used and exploited like the high school slag.

    When I read about how gypsies have trafficked some white girls, or how black thugs have impregnated them or how some Gentile watches a Hollywood film and believes some garbage dreamed up by Jewish screenwriters doing huge lines of blow in Malibu I think of that highs school slut with the reputation for being exploited.

    Why are Gentiles exploited? Why can’t Jews exploit Gypsies? Why can’t Gypsies exploit Jews?

    What makes whites a vulnerable target?

  11. Dumbo says:

    Jews, Anglos, etc, can be problematic on the elite level, in the grand scale, but as individuals on the personal level they can be reasonably friendly and polite. With gypsies is the opposite, while they have zero influence in politics, finance or the general culture, as individuals there is no way you can have any normal relationship with them, best is to avoid them, as ghetto blacks – but also blacks have some exceptions that can assimilate, while gypsies rarely do. I think some countries tried to educate them, to change their culture, even in some cases to have gypsy kids raised by white families, and I think all failed.

    That said, they can be talented at what they do. Once in Rome an old gypsy woman came asking for money, I sent her away, then she approached a female tourist with the same old sob story, she was more receptive, minutes later she was gone and the tourist was crying, “where is my wallet, my passport, help”. The gypsy woman was far away by then. The police of course didn’t do anything, but what could they do? Usually they arrest them, then release them, soon they are stealing again.

    Also, I don’t think we should call them “Roma” – do they really call themselves that? It’s confusing with “Romanians”, and it’s not as if they care one way or the other.

    That’s easy. The most undesirable is the one who will organize the other three into a grievance coalition to harangue YT.

    It is more likely that these Eastern Euro nations see what is going on in Western Europe and are taking preventitive measures. This kind of nationalism is not possible in Western Euro nations. The BNP only got 1.9% of the vote in 2010 in the UK general elections. Greens are still polling higher than AfD, France elected a Rothschild banker as president.
