OPINION Nationalism: Wallowing in the mud and eating political slops (part 1)

That’s the Balkans. A space where myths, stupid fairy tales and facts are intertwined. The Balkans, where ethnic hatred and chauvinism are created by bloodthirsty maniacs in national academies of science and arts, in politics and institutions, at the workplace, in classrooms and university amphitheatres, in café bars and teahouses, at stadiums, and even in kindergartens…

No, I’m not saying that they are all party engaged bots, working for 9 to 15 thousand denars. Many are just stupid and embittered, totally unaware multipliers of black propaganda and national chauvinism. One must not ignore that rotten national-chauvinistic pack of mental tormenters and louts who are most comfortable wallowing in the mud and eating political slops served to them by half educated, vulgar and greedy little puppets in politics.

Without ambitions of covering all aspects, it should also be noted that ethno-nationalism has survived even after half a century of life according to the concept “brotherhood and unity” of the former Yugoslav Federation which, by the way, we had in the name of our country up until two years ago. The Balkan people have been fostering ethnic hatred since the time of the fall of the two biggest empires that divided the Balkan Peninsula – the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman. And that ethnic hatred is deeply rooted in all pores of life and in the politics led in the entire region.

That’s the Balkans. A space where myths, stupid fairy tales and facts are intertwined. The Balkans, where ethnic hatred and chauvinism are created by bloodthirsty maniacs in national academies of science and arts, in politics and institutions, at the workplace, in classrooms and university amphitheatres, in café bars and teahouses, at stadiums, and even in kindergartens…

 

The social networks are at the tail end of that entire crazy parallel universe, where every idiot can express its entire stupidity and illiteracy, and turn the bloodthirstiness of academies and politicians into their own vow with which they are ruining their own life and the lives of everyone around them. And they dream of having someone give them a hat and a rifle in order to fulfil their “vow”.

The regime scums had it best when there were just about no media, and people were afraid to even whisper, let alone speak or write. And then came a slow fall of the regime, which is still lasting, thanks to the black money of the criminals in politics, nationalists and the “disappointed”. And to the indecisiveness and incapability, of course. So now you have “disappointed” Colorfuls who participated in the revolution with motives that by far have nothing to do with the demands for freedom, justice and equality, but with personal ambitions that at no point have excluded national chauvinism. Now no one is afraid of the regime anymore, while the memory of it stirs anger and determination to never let it happen again. But that is not the end of the story.

Intellectuals, journalists, and even non-governmental deceivers (expression from “Baba Zumbula”) on the social networks and in the media post “scientifically based facts”. Even feuilletons are published about the ethnic composition in the country after the Second World War, “scientific papers” that at one time used to be created in order to satisfy the irrational nationalist policies of part of the then federal leadership. Others are cropping and editing photos and videos of events that have taken place in various parts of the world and are “pasting” them in multi-ethnic settings in our country. What’s the purpose? One doesn’t have to be very smart to conclude that the goal is to deepen stereotypes and prejudices and to create ethnic hatred and violence. Why? Some out of vanity, some out of revenge, some out of frustrations projected in “great” quasi-historic and quasi-political topics, and some simply are part of a political-spy underground. Certainly, there are also those who carry frustrations because of their own appearance or impotence in every aspect.

 

Organised in nationalist, anti-European and neo-fascist headquarters, according to the methodology of Putin’s “disguises”, these messages like snakes are creeping into the everyday life of the people and are becoming part of the public opinion, are becoming “undisputed facts”. Rarely does someone seriously and thoroughly work on their deconstruction and exposure. Even less can attempts be seen for this propaganda to be condemned by the public.

Protected by mutual disparagement and obliviousness, each ethnic herd builds myths about the “greatness” of its own nation and the “insignificance” of the others. And hence, those parallel worlds are created and kept alive, with myths and lies woven into every pore of life…

Excerpt from part two: This should be once and for all closed: They are not patriots. There is no patriotism with them, because the criminal gang knows only about national-chauvinism and uses it to defend itself from justice.
