I am not surprised, they (ruling party) bank on polarizing people, attacking journalists and populism/prorussian reathorics.

I just listened to their press conference and they just pour gasoline on this situation. Like I nearly vomited hearing the accusations of journalists, opposition parties...

There are many politicians who are going to profit from this event, for sure.

The occasion to ban opposition parties, censor non-aligned press and furtherly restrict people's freedom is too perfect to be missed.

Yeah sure but they just don't realize how bad the situation is. I think that this isn't what's gonna happen.

Slovak politics is insane from mafia killing journalists to prime Minister throwing bananas on politicians because they behave like monkeys.

Slovak is just fine ;) Thanks for the link too, though I'll not give them any clicks lol

Figured it must've been Matovic. Also tracks this was before he was PM, I'm sure I wouldn't have missed it otherwise.

I guess you must be right. Probably, outsiders ( like me) can't phantom what's really going on..

Fico had a journalist murdered already for reporting on his mafia connections
