The mass Third World invasion of Europe is a well-organized invasion and has to be stopped with military force, not the building of fences, the president of the Czech Republic has warned.
He discussed his difference of opinion with the Czech Prime Minister, Bohuslav Sobotka, who has not endorsed his sensible position on the crisis.
“Which of us is right will be a question which will be answered in the next few months, rather than years,” Zeman said.
“I am of the opinion that this migration crisis has the character of an organized invasion, a well-organized, well-financed invasion which aims to disrupt the entire structure of Europe.”
He went on to say that he often saw among the “refugees” many healthy young men. “I think that they are cowards,” he said. “They should take up arms and fight for their country, not run away.”
He went on to point out that the United Nations had estimated that in 2016, the “refugee” wave would be double what it had been in 2015. The European Union, he said, even talked of a flood three times as great.
“I am like Cassandra warning about the migration crisis, warning about pulling up the wooden horse before the gates of Troy,” Zeman continued, referring to the character from the legend of Troy who, gifted with prophecy, warned of the destruction of the city through the wooden horse ploy.
“In particular, European culture is being exposed to the risk of oppression by a foreign culture, which is incompatible with European values,” he said. “The only way to stop it is to deploy an army, not to build fences.”
President Zeman also addressed the growing split between himself and the Czech Prime Minster, Bohuslav Sobotka.
The Prime Minister, who was elected in 2013—before the current invasion crisis erupted—is leader of the Czech Social Democratic Party (CSSD), which is a far left grouping allied to the socialist parties in the European Parliament, including France’s Socialist Party and Britain’s Labour Party, among others.
As a result, Sobotka has been as duplicitous as any far left winger over the matter, and has only been restrained because he knows that Zeman’s position is the prevailing popular opinion in his country.
Nonetheless, Sobotka has done whatever he can to help his fellow leftists in Europe, most recently by backing out of a planned move to oppose the EU’s “migrant quota” distribution policy. This was strongly criticized by Zeman in his TV interview, and he accused the Prime Minister of “undermining” the Czech Republic’s neighboring states.
