»The Greatestest« President of Slovenia
Slovenia has a newly re-elected President, Borut Pahor. He has much in common with Kim Kardashian. Our president loves Instagram, fame and different outfits and he does not want to be a moral authority. Pahor proved that it’s not just an empty talk. He wiggles and jiggles even on the prom promenade and yells to the teenage girls: “Hey pretty sweetie shake it” in our local slang. Oh, and he has a nickname: Barbie. So presidential is it not? Almost as presidential as the total annihilation of the Slovene origin stated by another Barbie look-alike, Melania Knauss married Trump. The first lady stated that receiving the American citizenship was: “the greatest privilege on planet earth!” Being born in Slovenia was just a bad start? Well, we had a very bad start! Our first president Milan Kučan awarded George Soros the billionaire himself. For spreading democracy or because we opened our economy to the brutal sell-out? The cruel joke does not end there. Our former president Kučan is considered a communist but was awarded by a Pope himself and the Knights of Malta. What kind of a communist is rewarded by the Vatican elite and the European Royals? If Milan Kučan is a real communist so is Kim Kardashian. You know, Instagram for everyone!
Please, we do not have only the greatestest president but also the greatestest democracy in Slovenia. We could choose at the end of this truly depressing presidential campaign between two candidates Borut Pahor and Marjan Šarec, the latter being a mayor of a picturesque little town Kamnik. Guess how Šarec became know to the Slovenian public? Is he a prominent professor? No. An accomplished businessman? Nope. A fair judge? We wish. A brave diplomat? Even less. A revolutionary? If only! Šarec made his fame by imitating crooked, incompetent politicians as a stand-up comedian. What could go wrong there? It is true, he is not a dirty tycoon and a mafia guy, and things could go much worse. Like waltzing with Nazis!
The Irresistible Charm of Nazi Collaboration?
We Slovenians are proud of our national resistance against fascism and Nazis. Yes, our ancestors were brave and fearless when combating the 3rd Reich. Slovenian partisans are the legacy we care about the most. But not all of us, those who collaborated with Nazis, well are Nazi fans of course.
Our re-elected president Pahor thinks that if you died as a partisan or you swore to Hitler, you are a victim of war. A common monument for “all victims of war” was built in our capital city.
Would you stand by in a commemoration where Nazi collaborators were remembered as “our heroes”? Pahor did. Our Barbie does not understand history it seems? Šarec, the other candidate, clearly understands who won the 2nd World War. He knows it was not Nazis. But never the less in the town he manages the local library was named after a Nazi collaborator France Balantič because he was an outstanding poet. Being elevated in the anthology of Slovene poetry is not enough? It seems Slovenia is dancing the Nazi waltz and it smells bad.
