Vychcany Tatinek...

21. května 2008 v 23:24 | Ross Hedvicek
Jsa cizincem, nemam to stesti chodit na premiery ceskych filmu, kdyz jsou jeste nezasmradle a tak jsem zhledl cesky film z roku 2004 Tatinek teprve nyni. Pokud nevite o co jde, je to dokumentarni film Jana Sveraka o jeho otci Zdenku Sverakovi o jeho zivote a kariere. Nemuzu rict, ze bych Sveraka starsiho vylozene nemel rad, ale urcity predsudek vuci nemu chovam, protoze mi na nem vzdy vadilo to prazske elitarstvi a to snobske pseudo-intelektualstvi. Jo, ja se k tomu klidne priznam, ja si muzu dovolit psat pravdu, ja v Cesku neziju.

A prave proto jsem byl mile prekvapen a do urcite miry sokovan zacatkem filmu Tatinek, kdy Sverak starsi vzpomina na detstvi v jakemsi ceskem mestecku. To nebylo nahrane, to bylo tak realisticke a skutecne, ze Sverak byl az mily. A uz jsem si rikal, ze jsem asi tomu Sverakovi cele ty roky krivdil, ze on asi opravdu je ten mily starsi pan (teprve ted si uvedomuju, ze ja jsem taky starsi pan - akorat nejsem tak mily) co zdalky a kdyz si sundam bryle vypada jako Sean Connery. To je asi u nekterych ceskych hercu umyslne - Werich taky v pozdejsim veku vypadal (zdalky, etc) jako Peter Ustinov anebo Orson Welles. Nastesti tenhle klamny dojem trval jen asi tak prvni ctvrtinu filmu.

Pak zacalo Sverakovo vzpominani na "dospely zivot" a tam uz nebylo tak jednoduche cloveka, ktery to taky vsechno zazil, tak osalit. Takze po te prvni ctvrtce se zbytek filmu muze bezvyhradne libit jen nejakym mladym ceskym potroublikum, kteri se narodili nekdy v osmdesatych letech a osobne nezazili sedesata leta, osmasedesaty rok a Husakovy roky. Pokud nejste v nejakem tom psychologickem stadiu "popirani reality a vlastni minulosti" (tim trpi vetsina ceskeho naroda, cest a slava vyjimkam!), pak musite dospet k nazoru, ze laskavy stary pan Sverak prozil zivot komunistickeho prominenta a vychcaneho Cecha a pres neustale predstirani moudrosti stejne nic nepochopil. A v padesatedevate minute, ctyricate vterine fillmu rika Sverak "a najednou je vam tak nejak smutno a rikate si, co vam vlastne chybi?". Tam to trefil, i kdyz nepochopil. Nebo pochopil a bal se to rict. Chova v naruci sve vnouce a je mu smutno z proplytvaneho zivota, ze ho prozil tak jak ho prozil a ze ho neprozil s rovnymi zady a cistym svedomim a charakterem.

Sverak v dobe nejhorsiho komunistickeho teroru vystudoval vysokou skolu. V te dobe slusni lide farali do dolu a nestudovali vysoke skoly, mile deti. To je stejna bachorka jako ta od Vaclava Klause o studovani na vyberove komunisticke skole v dobe, kdy se zaviralo a popravovalo vlevo vpravo. Pote Zdenek Sverak vstoupil do komunisticke strany. V roce 1961 - zadna obleva na obzoru, porad jeste klasicky komunisticky teror - a on k nim vstoupi! V filmu Tatinek na sve clenstvi v KSC Sverak vzpomina, aniz by jen jednou (daval jsem pozor) pouzil slovo "komunisticka" a z jeho vypraveni vyplyva, ze vetsina (ne-li vsichni) z jeho kamaradu byli cleny stejne teroristicke organizace. Ve filmu Sverak zcela podvedome a opakovane pouzil slova "strana" - jako slangove pouzivali zazrani komuniste, jako ze je nad slunce jasne, ktera strana, jen ta jedina, tak proc ji jeste jmenovat? Byl to jejich verbalni uzus, asi jako slovo "aparat", ktere neznamenalo nejakou kameru, ale budovu ci mistni sidlo vyboru komunisticke strany. Byt clenem komunisticke strany tak nejak patrilo k bontonu tehdejsi prazskych elitaru a snobskych pseudo-intelektualu. A vychcanych prospecharu. Takze s clenstvim v KSC byly imaginarni pozadavky na charakter splachnuty do zachodu a Zdenek Sverak se stal redaktorem Ceskoslovenskeho rozhlasu. Hlasne trouby propagandy komunistu a siritelu lzi a nenavisti. Ano, prosim, opet v tom roce 1961.

V KSC a rozhlasu pry Sverak setrval az do roku 1969, kdy byl vysoupnut z obojiho pravdepodobne pri stranickych proverkach a protoze nedostatecne jasal pri cteni Pouceni z krizoveho vyvoje ve strane a spolecnosti. Teprve pak se vyznamneji dal dohromady s celozivotnim kamaradem a duvernikem StB, cislo svazku 23047 Ladislavem Smoljakem a oba dva psali scenare k filmum Husakovy normalizace. Jako treba ten otresny film "Vesnicko ma strediskova", ktery reziroval jeho dalsi kumpan a "byvaly clen jeho divadla" Jiri Menzel (Menzel taky vystudoval v tech nejhorsich padesatych letech FAMU u super-komunisty Otakara Vavry). Dle verze vypravene ve filmu Zdenkem Sverakem "scenar" vznikl pres noc jako pokus o zakamuflovani financniho podvodu na Barrandove a za dve strany (!) strojopisu dostal Sverak vyplaceno 2000 korun. Ano, to se to prazskym intelektualum juchalo, vsude jinde stal bicykl Favorit 1200 korun. A Sverak napise dve strany. Tak mu komunisti ublizovali. Tak trpeli. Hanba plut!

Takze za Husaka Sverakovi psenka opravdu kvetla a zil si jako kral. Po sametovem podvodu se Zdenek Sverak preorientoval na role laskavych, byt radoby chlipnych starecku a jelo se dal. Publikum to dal zralo i s navijakem. Obzvlast kdyz Kolja dostal Oscara - ja nevim za co, ja jsem ten film jeste nevidel. Asi neco jako hodnotne sovetske filmy Moskva slzam neveri a Mala Vera - ty se skutecne promitaly v kanadske televizi. Prezil jsem je oba sedice na gauci s koleny roztresenymi.

Sverakovo vzpominani ve filmu Tatinek konci casove v dobe pred natacenim filmu Vratne lahve. A ten uz jsem v mezidobi taky videl a je jasne, ze Zdenek Sverak zadny pokrok ani po tomhle filmu neudelal neudelal. Porad ten stejny dusevni odpad. Ma docela legitimni duvod, aby mu bylo smutno. Me by rozhodne smutno bylo. Ale ja muzu byt jiny pripad. Ja mam svedomi. V roce 2005 se Zdenek Sverak dostal mezi prvnich tricet osobnosti v divacke soutezi Nejvetsi Cech. Ano prosim, komunista. Hochstapler. Snob. Pseudo-intelektual. Neni to typicke???

Jak se to dela v Tennessee...

20. května 2008 v 16:09
In Tennessee we really do pull off the road and stop for funerals......nobody moves until the last car has gone by.
What follows is a message from Vicki Pierce about her nephew James' funeral (he was serving our country in Iraq):
"I'm back, it was certainly a quick trip, but I have to also say it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. There is a lot to be said for growing up in a small town in Tennnessee The service itself was impressive with wonderful flowers and sprays, a portrait of James, his uniform and boots, his awards and ribbons. There was lots of military brass and an eloquent (though inappropriately longwinded) Baptist preacher. There were easily 1000 people at the service, filling the church sanctuary as well as the fellowship hall and spilling out into the parking lot.
However, the most incredible thing was what happened following the service on the way to the cemetery. We went to our cars and drove to the cemetery escorted by at least 10 police cars with lights flashing and some other emergency vehicles, with Tennessee police handling traffic. Everyone on the road who was not in the procession, pulled over, got out of their cars, and stood silently and respectfully, some put their hands over their hearts.
When we turned off the highway suddenly there were teenage boys along both sides of the street about every 20 feet or so, all holding large American flags on long flag poles, and again with their hands on their hearts. We thought at first it was the Boy Scouts or 4H club or something, but it continued .. for two and a half miles. Hundreds of young people, standing silently on the side of the road with flags. At one point we passed an elementary school, and all the children were outside, shoulder to shoulder holding flags kindergartners, handicapped, teachers, staff, everyone. Some held signs of love and support. Then came teenage girls and younger boys, all holding flags. Then adults. Then families. All standing silently on the side of the road. No one spoke, not even the very young children.
The military presence, at least two generals, a fist full of colonels, and representatives from every branch of the service, plus the color guard who attended James, and some who served with him .. was very impressive and respectful, but the love and pride from this community who had lost one of their own was the most amazing thing I've ever been privileged to witness. I've attached some pictures, some are blurry (we were moving), but you can get a small idea of what this was like.

U.S. Marine

19. května 2008 v 15:36 | Reuters
May 18: A U.S. Marine from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit in a firefight with the Taliban near Garmser in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The Marine was uninjured in the exchange.
Jak nahore uvedeno, Marine to prezil bez zraneni. A zatimco se tohle deje, hrdinni cesti vojaci specialniho nasazeni z vojenskeho utvaru 1825 z Tabora, velitel pplk. Ing. Rous se soustredi na unosy a rezani nozem civilistu v Tabore. Soudruh Rous je urcite pochvalil, jak se hezky hraji...
A nikdo neni schopen s tim nic udelat. No jo, Cesko...

Topolankuv politicky vezen Milos Demeter...

16. května 2008 v 18:09 | Ross Hedvicek
Porad mi jeste neni jasne, kdo je vlastne Milos Demeter. Co vime pozitivne, je, ze to neni zadny cikan (nebo Rom), navzdory tomu jmenu. (Ostatne ja se taky jmenuju Hedvicek a nejsem zadny Cech.) Prikladam kompletni necenzurovany dopis, ktery Milos Demeter, v soucasne dobe vezen v Plzni na Borech, poslal me kamaradce Marcele Cechove do Australie (a kde zada o spojeni se mnou - jako by se stalo). Popremyslejte.
V dnesni Ceske republice panuje neco jako "TOTALITNI DEMOKRACIE" nebo "DEMOKRACIE NA BATERKY" a tak dochazi k teroristickym utokum na mlade Australany (pokus o podrezani) a Americany (vrazda probodnutim), vyhazovani nepohodlnych blogeru (Hedvicek, Rezabek, Krystlik, Jungwirth, atd. ) z udajne "soukromych" verejnych zpravodajskych medii - predstava, ze v dnesnim Cesku jsou porad politicti vezni mi nepripada nijak pritazena za vlasy - a to nemusim ani poukazovat za toho grazla Havla vezneneho Hucina ci Uzunoglu. Je nad slunce zrejme, ze v soucasne Ceske republice jsou vezneni nevinni lide zcela neznamych jmen - z politickych duvodu.
V pripade Milose Demetera zacina byt jasne, ze slapl do hovna ve spojitosti s "poslankyni Talmanovou", coz je soucasna spolubydlici premiera Topolanka a matka jeho ditete. O "poslankyni Talmanove" mi tu uz chvili chodi zvesti (zatim na urovni drbu), ze je to osoba, vedle ktere Lukrecia Borgia, babicka Livie z Ja, Claudius a "Cachticka pani Anna Bathoryova" vypadaji jako dobrotive a dobrocinne zeny. Ale zatim to byly vzdy jen spis drby - ale ted je namocena do vezneni nevinneho cloveka?
A tohle mi ted prislo, ze to bylo v Blistech. A uznejte, ze kdyz na nekoho plivaji ty komunisticke Britske listy, tak to musi byt slusny clovek: http://www.blisty.cz/files/isarc/0010/20001016k.html
No poctete si - treba vas neco napadne:

Yes, I'm Bad American ...

15. května 2008 v 15:32
I Am the Liberal-Progressives Worst Nightmare. I am an American.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some Liberal governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican!
I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!
I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer, it makes you a smart American.
I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything.
I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, do it in English.
I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.
My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and whoever canceled Jerry Springer. I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.
I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.
I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! So, shut up already.
I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country! This is AMERICA.
If you were born here and don't like it you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.
I want to know which church is it exactly where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution. Can I get an AMEN on that one?
I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry rear if you're running from them..
I also think they have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are. And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it's good.....
And I'm proud that "God" is written on my money.
I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.
I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making "donations" to their cause.
I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.
I believe "illegal" is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.
I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA!
If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

My fellow Americans:

15. května 2008 v 15:04 | G.W. Bush speech
My fellow Americans:
As you all know, the defeat of Iraq's regime has been completed. Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete. This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days.
It is now time to begin the reckoning.
Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.
The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.
Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.
The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world hellholes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.
Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.
In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home.
On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.
I'm ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.
I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. Pay your tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers, and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York.
A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are going to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change. Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I'm gonna put 'em? Yep, border security. So start doing something with your oil. Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty -- starting now.
It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism.
I answer them by saying 'darn tootin.' Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet.
It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. It is time to eliminate World Cup soccer from America.
To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you.
To the nations on List 2, a final thought. Drop dead.
God bless America.
Thank you and good night.

Josef Masin's Halifax speech...

15. května 2008 v 15:00 | Josef Masin
I appreciate the honor that you have bestowed upon us with this medal. I am especially happy that it is being given by a group of individuals who have themselves experienced Communist oppression and that this is an organization of Czechs and Slovaks together, which I view as the nation that we fought to free.
I understand the award of this medal not just for myself personally, but also for our friends in Czechoslovakia and in the U.S. Army who worked to free the country. Including those whose activity until today has not been recognized.
Today, 15 years after the collapse of the Soviet bloc, I have to recognize with great sadness that the republic we have fought for has been dismembered, and many of the old, Communist-era structures have remained in place, only the name being changed. Many of those present here surely know that I and my brother have not until the present day returned to Czechoslovakia and I hope that you understand this decision, which, although difficult for us, was reached by us after ample reflection. Unfortunately the Czech Republic today is a state in which the Communist party continues to have legitimacy and even participate in the government; and the legal system is based on the principle of continuity. Even the highest judge of the land is a former member of the Communist party; the Communist Party which, before 1989, as the sole legal authority. It was the Communist Party which passed the death sentences over members of our resistance group. I cannot imagine that in a democratic Rechtsstaat, such as, for instance, the United States, a member of a criminal organization, which the Communist Party was without a doubt, could become the Chief Justice of the highest Court.
Unfortunately, the first set of leaders in 1989 has in my opinion perpetrated a crime on the Czechoslovak people by paving the way for legal and institutional continuity and has implemented an economic reform that would have made Nigeria proud. It has hollowed out the economy and stole the people's property. It was necessary to implement this continuity in order for the ex-Communists to retain their positions in the economy, in politics and in the justice system. They would have had to account for themselves, for their crimes and their membership in a criminal organization, and they would not have been able to continue playing leading roles in the economy, in politics and the justice system.
Today, 15 years after the Velvet Revolution, it isn't possible for us to even review the files that the StB has assembled on us, despite our best efforts. On the other hand, the ministers of the state have barred access to StB files about their activities during the Communist regime.
Those present here know that in the debate about our activities the objection is often raised that we made war when no official war had been declared. Is there a particular form in which war must be declared? For instance, how Germany invaded Poland and Czechoslovakia without a declaration of war? Or the Italians invaded Abyssinia? Would one also chastise the citizens of those countries for defending themselves and for killing armed opponents? The Communists did in fact declare a war against a majority of the country's population. A class war and a dictatorship of the proletariat. I can still remember that in our school in 1949 the teachers in the government sanctioned lessons, declared that the Communist Party exercises total power in the state and that the working proletariat which was being represented by the Communist Party was waging class war against the so-called bourgeoisie and kulaks. We took that declaration of war at face value.
I continue to have hope that the new generation will bring about the rule of law and functional democracy in the Republic.
Freedom and the rule of law are precious and fragile gifts. In the course of human existence, those who have enjoyed them have been a tiny minority, and they come at a price. Some of our friends paid that price. They fought for the cause of freedom and they gave their lives for it. Let us remember them today!

How the West Was Lost...

15. května 2008 v 14:53 | Ross Hedvicek
You know what NATO is otherwise you would not be reading this article. What is intriguing is its membership. The founding members (as of April 4, 1949) were Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, United Kingdom and the United States. It made perfect logical sense. More countries were later added to the roster: Greece and Turkey on February 18, 1952 and Germany on May 9, 1955. Germany expanded to include the territory of Saarland, when it was returned in 1957 and then again to include the former East Germany after the German re-unification of October 3, 1990. Eventually Spain joined on May 30, 1982. So far so good.
On March 12, 1999 logic and common sense were unceremoniously thrown out the window when the allegedly democratic and former Warsaw Pact countries of Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic joined NATO. A few years later on March 29, 2004 seven additional more-or-less communist countries joined NATO: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. Liberals and communists of the world rejoiced ¬ everyone else went slack jawed with shock. It made almost as much sense as the Ku Klux Klan joining the NAACP or Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition. NATO was an international organization for collective security - meant for the west's defense against the Soviet Union and its vassals - and now it's being joined by the very countries against which it was supposed to fight?
All those new East European members of NATO have made only marginal steps towards democratization of their countries. Their membership in NATO renders this once powerful organization factually powerless and useless ¬ which was probably the intention of the authors of the idea of admitting them into NATO in the first place.
Only very superficial changes were made in governmental make up of all former countries of the Warsaw Pact. I will use the Czech Republic as an example to illustrate.
Czechoslovakia switched from being communist into being "democratic" under very suspicious and never fully explained circumstances on November 17, 1989, when the StB (the Czech secret police) organized "student demonstrations" in Prague. One youthful-looking StB officer, Ludvik Zifcak, even pretended to be "dead student Ruzicka" so the news flashes about the "tragedy" could be sent out to the world by Marxist journalist (no accident here) Petr Uhl to drum up sympathy and get things moving. Today Ludvik Zifcak is the chairman of one of the many Communist parties in the Czech Republic and no longer hides his true colors.
Next came the moment for the future darling of western leftist media and western Marxist university professors, writer Vaclav Havel. It was not so obvious then, but with twenty-plus years of hindsight, it is obvious that Vaclav Havel, a protégé from a prominent family, was groomed by the communist government for a big position in the future. That future started later with the so-called Velvet Revolution. The prominence of Vaclav Havel under the communist regime was obvious not only from his uninhibited traveling to the West at a time when ordinary Czechs had to stay put for decades (does nobody remember the Iron Curtain anymore?), but also from his driving around in expensive western cars when his compatriots could hardly afford a bicycle to pedal. This was a little too well known and therefore the communist planners decided to manufacture a plausibly deniable cover story for the future - for when the need would arise to present Havel as a martyr and opponent of the communist regime. So they imprisoned Vaclav Havel (well, it was more like a spa) to create an aura of a "prisoner of conscience". The world and the Czechs themselves took the bait. Vaclav Havel later put a big dent into his manufactured "poor tortured prisoner" cover story when his "Letters to Olga" were published. Letters to Olga were letters to his wife from prison and in which he describes his prison life. For example "smoking cigars" (page 5), "eating caviar" (page 16), "ordering cartons of different brand of cigarettes, the old one is not good enough" (page 61), "watching movies and TV" (page 85), "eating chocolates" (page 98), and "getting shipments of foreign vitamins" (page 107). He led the life of comfortable vacationer in every sense of the word. On a page 7 he writes about "getting massages". Poor prisoner Vaclav Havel ¬ how could he have endured the suffering of that hellish prison existence for so long?
On Dec. 29, 1989 the exclusively communist Czechoslovak parliament unanimously "elected" Vaclav Havel, an alleged enemy of the state until the day before, to the presidency of Czechoslovakia. Who says pigs can't fly?
Then the events took a faster pace and started making even less sense. President Havel immediately pronounced a new policy of "Peace and Love" and ordered that there will be no prosecution or persecution of communists. Some of them, like the hard-line commie and then Prime Minister Marian Calfa, became "close friends" with Havel. During Havel's 14 year presidency (which ended in February 2003) he never failed to protect his communist buddies, while at the same moment preaching to the West about human rights. Vaclav Havel gave lifetime tenure to old-time communist judges and presided over establishing "legal continuity" with the former communist regime and thus forever protected all communist criminals in justice, army, police and all branches of the government from ever being punished for their past crimes.
After the Czech Republic became a member of NATO on March 12, 1999, Havel sent former Warsaw Pact "ex-communist" officers as emissaries to Brussels - no other "senior officers" were apparently available! My guess is that all NATO military secrets reached KGB headquarters in Lubyanka Square about 15 minutes after they were entrusted to "NATO-Czech" officers. The same is true for all other "senior officers" from former Warsaw Pact countries that were sent to Brussels in similar fashion. By allowing those snakes into the house, NATO rendered itself ineffective and useless and can no longer be taken seriously as a military protective force and alliance. Whoever in NATO had the "bright idea" to allow Czechs, Poles and Hungarians into NATO to create a "buffer zone" between Western Europe did not realize that the Czechs, Poles and Hungarians are the proverbial Trojan horse. The enemy is no longer at the gates - with this stupid decision the enemy is now inside the gates.
And this is how the United States lost NATO without even knowing it.
What's the current situation? Vaclav Havel, a key player in the elimination of NATO, has since "retired" and has become the world's most successful collector of Honoris Causa doctoral titles from universities world-wide. If your school will plop another ridiculous title on him, yes, he is always willing to come and soliloquize a little. The power of communists and the influence of the Soviet Union (now Russia, whatever) on the countries of Eastern Europe never waned and the KGB's grip on events remained firm. Communists switched the official names of their parties into something more acceptable to gullible Westerners and continue to rule.
Their formerly political power was smoothly transferred into economic power in one amazing trick - company bosses, which had always been a political appointment, simply became company owners in a very smooth transition to capitalism. In the most recent Czech and Slovak elections, the renamed political parties of ex-communists won the elections. They promised the moon and stars and the populace believed them.
And you thought that Islamofascism was a problem? Have you forgotten about the Evil Empire? They knocked NATO out cold without a single shot being fired. Just wait and see what they come up with next...

Jak zadupali na Karla Krize...

14. května 2008 v 17:12 | Ross Hedvicek
Karel Kriz psaval na blogu idnes pomerne osvicene clanky, ale ta doba uz je zrejme pryc. Ocividne na nej bylo zadupano a pohrozeno mu prstickem, aby se postavil do lajny a pochodoval v rytmu, jinak muze tak skoncit jako Hedvicek. Tudiz Karel Kriz napsal sve Pouceni z krizoveho (bez hacku, prosim) vyvoje ve strane a spolecnosti. Ctete zde:

A tak si Karel sype popel na hlavu:
"Odpověď na otázku zní - ano. Zářným příkladem je "Američan z Kojetína na Moravě" Rostislav Hedvíček. Už jej vyhodili ze všech zpravodajských blogů, kde se pokoušel publikovat, někde (třeba zde na i-dnes) jej odmítli registrovat. Zůstal mu tedy k publikování pouze jeho osobní blog, na který máte odkaz výše. Jeho názory jsou tak extrémní, že na většinu české populace působí jako červený hadr na býka. Jenomže právě díky tomu se stal populárním a jistě mu to pomohlo i k lepší prodejnosti jeho knihy "Jak Paroubek kradl salámy", kde popisuje svoji základní vojenskou službu s dnešním předsedou ČSSD. Musím přiznat, že jsem sice četl jen úryvky z této knihy, ale jak autor, tak jeho kamarád Jiří P. my v ní byli celkem sympatičtí. Proč jsem byl nucen svůj názor korigovat ?"
Dale pak Karel Kriz zduvodnuje, proc souhlasi se vstupem sovetskych vojsk do Ceskoslovenska - nebo to mam halucinace? Pise: "Blog Lidových novin byl doslova válcován jeho články a básněmi, kdy i ta největší stupidita měla karmu jako zpráva o přistání mimozemšťanů. Pohár přetekl. S odstupem času tedy musím dát za pravdu administrátorům místního blogu, kteří odmítli Hedvíčkovy příspěvky zveřejňovat na i-dnes." Ha! Ted jsme na to kapli! CESKA ZAVIST pomalu se transformujici v NENAVIST. Uspech se v Cesku nepromiji - to je hrich! Troufam si tvrdit, ze pokud by mi byl povolen blog na idnes a nebyl bych tam nijak diskriminovan odsunovanim z vyberu (obvykla metoda komunistickych administratoru), pak bych stejnym zpusobem prevalcoval i blog idnes a behem 1 mesice bych byl nejctenejsim a nejvice hodnocenym autorem na idnes.cz. A to prece neni mozno pripustit! Vzdyt ten chlap je emigrant!
Pak jsou vsechny metody dobre - opakovani lzi o udajnem porusovani cehosi imaginarniho a o udajnem podvadeni s karmou a ctenosti! O jak to boli, ze Hedvicka ctou tisice lidi a moje kydy ublizene hospodynky cte jen 43 lidi? Posleme na neho udani! Prohlasime ho psychopata a rekneme, ze nas urazi! To nevadi, ze tomu nerozumime, o cem pise, nas to stejne urazi! Jako v te scence od Lasici a Satinskeho: "Co hovori? Uraza nas?"
A konci rozsudkem nade mnou: "Ačkoliv proti němu samotnému nemám zhola nic, některé jeho provokativní úvahy chápu, svobodu slova považuji za jeden z největších výdobytků demokracie, jsem nucen konstatovat, že v poslední době zřejmě pan Ross ztratil veškerou soudnost. Škoda. On je "persona non grata" zřejmě právem."
Takze tak - spravedlnost v Ceske republice byla ubranena, ze soudruzi? A ted hura na Vanka!
