Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico has promised to build a border fence with Austria and Hungary to stop invaders from entering Germany, and also announced that his country would “never accept a single Muslim” into its borders.
Making the dramatic announcement in his last pre-election rally in Bratislava, Fico said that the current EU border was so full of holes it resembled a piece of Swiss cheese.
“We’ll never bring even a single Muslim to Slovakia; we won’t create any Muslim communities here because they pose a serious security risk,” Fico told thousands at the rally.
“It is predicted more than one million refugees will arrive in Europe this year,” he went on. “It cannot work to integrate people of other faiths and other cultures.”
In addition, he said, Slovakia would “never bow to the European Union’s dictates and accept quotas,” referring to the demand by the EU that each Member State “absorb” a certain number of the invaders.
He went on to reveal that his government had been given information by the German secret service which revealed that IS terrorists had poured into Europe disguised as “migrants.”
“The warnings issued by the Visegrad countries (Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia) have come true. The EU’s refugee policy has failed,” he said to cheers from the thousands-strong crowd.
Recalling the mass sex attacks by the nonwhite invaders in Cologne on New Year’s Eve, Fico warned of something similar befalling “our women,” and said that he would “not accept the creation of a compact, closed Muslim community in Slovakia that would be a huge threat to the European way of life.”
“This is something we do not want here,” he said, to a renewed burst of applause.
Finally, he announced that Slovakia would be building fences on its borders with Austria and Hungary to “prevent alternative escape routes through Slovakia and the Czech Republic to Germany.”
Anti-invasion rally in Bratislava.
The Slovak election—being held today—is expected to be won by Fico’s Smer–sociálna demokracia (Direction–Social Democracy, or Smer-SD) party, albeit it with a reduced majority.
After peaking at around 40 percent on the back of the invasion issue, Smer-SD’s poll numbers have been slipping steadily since the beginning of the year. Many of Slovakia’s other parties have stolen Fico’s thunder by adopting similar positions on asylum seekers.
If Smer-SD does not regain its outright majority in the Slovak parliament, Fico is expected to go into coalition with the Slovenská národná strana (the Slovak National Party, or SNS), with whom Smer-SD was in a previous coalition from 2006 to 2010.
The SNS is regularly smeared by the controlled media as “far right” and worse, and if the party does become part of a government coalition once again, an even tougher line against the Third World invasion can be expected.
The SNS is expected to break through back into the Slovak parliament after failing to gain the minimum number of votes needed in Slovakia’s proportional representation system.
Fico has an unlikely political background to be in the position in which he finds himself today. A former member of the Communist Party, the 51-year-old and his party were always regarded as center-left on the political spectrum.
The invasion issue has however become pivotal for him, most likely because Slovakia has some other pressing internal problems which would otherwise have created severe political problems for the ruling party.
Unemployment stands at around 10 percent, and there have recently been nation-wide strikes over low average wages. If Fico wins today’s election, he will have to deal with these, and other internal issues, just as quickly if he intends to remain in power.
Finally, his open opposition to the EU invader quota system has, just like the other Visegrad nations, put him on a direct collision course with the EU, an issue which is likely to come to the fore before Slovakia assumes the rotating EU presidency in July this year.
