The President of the Czech Republic told illegal immigrants (not refugees or asylum seekers) arriving in the country they must respect the country’s laws and customs or leave, telling them: “Nobody invited you here.”
In an interview with newspaper Blesk, President Milos Zeman said that the growing number of refugees in the Czech Republic must “respect our laws, just as we respect the law when we come to your country.”
He added: “If you do not like it, go away.”
The Czech Repubic English Language news service, The Prague Daily Monitor said that his remarks were aimed primarily at the wave of Middle Eastern and African migrants entering the country, rather than Ukrainian migrants who have been fleeing conflict and social breakdown in their own country since the US / NATO engineered coup overthrew a democratically elected government and replaced it with neo - Nazi gangster thugs.
“Unlike the Islamic migrants, Ukrainians have a better ability to assimilate themselves,” he said.
Last Tuesday, the country’s Prime Minister, Bohuslav Sobotka, accused Zeman of appealing to people’s “basest instincts” and of spreading hatred against refugees. Zeman responded: “Some may consider it appealing to the basest instincts, but this is the same stance that Hungarians share when they build a fence against Serbia, and Americans who have built a fence on their border with Mexico.”
Zeman then went on to blame Western powers for the current refugee crisis:
“The current wave of migration is rooted in the crazy idea to invade Iraq, which allegedly had weapons of mass destruction, but nothing was found,” he said.
We think it is a bit more complicated than that, but he has a point. Most of the refugees are from nations where western meddling in domestic politics, particularly the meddling authorised by the Rent Boy President in Washington has reduced the nation to a failed state, started a civil war or led to the rise of an even more brutal tyranny that was removed.
