Final Word from Tuesday, December 13, 2016

The far left has disappeared, as we wrote in May in our paid service, the Friday Edition. Only the far right presents a risk, we are repeatedly told by the media. Miroslav Macek wrote in his blog that so much fear has been instilled in Czechs about the slow "browning" (Nazification) of society, that they forget to notice that society in the meantime is quickly turning red (Communist). After accusing members of his own party of turning brown, it is now Bohuslav Sobotka who is turning red. He's launching a class war against the rich as a way to claw back ČSSD's traditional voters from ANO. He copped the idea of progressive tax from the Communists, and he wants to halt the outflow of dividends. The CR already has progressive personal income tax, and the EU would never allow a dividend ban, but ignoring the facts is part of the far left's modus operandi. This is one of the things that makes extremists so dangerous in this post-truth world. Or so we are told. [Czech Republic radical KSČM Party Andrej Babiš]
