Turns out he's a nasty homophobe:

"In 2023, Fico referred to adoption by same-sex couples as a perversion, stated that he would never support same-sex marriage: "gender ideology in schools is unacceptable".

He is not right winger. You are translating European politics in American. He is Putin loving homophobe, but he actually comes from left wing.

right-wing= illiberal. He's a right-wing politician just like Orbán, Netanyahu, Meloni, Trump and Sunak. It doesn't matter if his party's predecessor had the word "communist" in the name. The left/right political spectrum absolutely exists outside the US. Stop trying to gaslight everyone with your idiocy, r21.

by Anonymousreply 23May 16, 2024 7:49 AM

Thinking the war in your neighbouring country is crazy and is having a negative impact on your country does not make one a "Putin licker".

If Orban and Fico are nationalists then they can't love each other.

In r23's opinion, Fico's attempted murderer is a liberal.

by Anonymousreply 24May 16, 2024 8:00 AM

R23 you are stupid American (sorry for being political incorrect), who think that the whole world is Kansas.

Have you ever heard of Fidel Castro. He was pretty homophobic -persecuting gay men and putting them in concentration camps, he was very close to Russia and the enemy of US. He was very illiberal, he outlawed political pluralism and introduced one party system.

Do you call him right winger too?

What about Xi Jinping? Rather illiberal guy. And Kim Jong-Un?

Dorothy, world is much wider and more diverse than Kansas.

Welcoming a brutal Russian annexation of a neighboring country and insisting the Ukrainians capitulate to "avoid war" certainly makes one a Putin licker.

[quote]If Orban and Fico are nationalists then they can't love each other.

Oh, they've been better able to reconcile than your narrow schematism can suppose. From Wikipedia:

[quote]By 2022, Fico's relationship with Orbán's government in Hungary had warmed considerably. In 2022, Fico welcomed Orbán's re-election in Hungary, praising his nationalistic approach and stance on the Russo-Ukrainian war. Similarly, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó welcomed Fico's return to office in 2023, noting "Robert Fico has the same views on the war, migration and gender issues as us".

I figured Fico was allied with Putin when, the first news I heard about it came with [anti-violence] comments from Zelensky.

What was really notable about the assassination attempt was that Fico had a security guy on either side of him, but they still let him get shot FIVE times by a guy right in front of them all. I guess his Secret Service wasn't very committed to taking a bullet for him.

Funny how Americans like R23 have no idea what is going on in the world.

He has no idea that hypocrite US Democrat party is supporting various right wing allies in Europe. Croatian conservative prime minister, who has formed the new government with far right partners is Biden's administration darling. They don't care about his illiberal politics, persecution of free press and his ultra homophobic, nationalist partners with whom he has formed a coalition, as long as he supports American interests.

On the other hand, the president (president in Croatia is more of a representative figure) who is social democrat, is closer to Russia (which I don't approve), but he is gay friendly and socially liberal politician.

R63 my English may be less than perfect, but I think that everyone could understand my point on corporate puppet that is Democratic party.

While they are scaring people of Trump's racism, they are are supporting their ally Israel in ethnical cleansing of different ethicity. While they are screaming about Trump's homophobia they are completely fine with their Balkanic darling's ministers threatening to stop the lgbtq "perversion".

While I am completely against anti-semitism that raised its' ugly head on US campuses, I am glad that youngsters are becoming aware of the hypocrisy and manipulation.
