    Anti-semitism alive and well among far rights in Croatia.

    They make Skinheads look like Angels.

    Bosnia's Catholic Church is expected to hold a mass in Sarajevo commemorating Croatian Nazi-allied soldiers and civilians killed in Bleiburg, Austria, at the end of World War II - prompting concerns among political leaders, Jewish groups and experts.
    A large annual event sponsored by the Croatian parliament is usually held in southern Austria, but it was cancelled this year - reportedly due to the coronavirus pandemic - and will be held in Sarajevo on Saturday instead, on behalf of the Bishops' Conference of Bosnia and Croatia.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Here is the official Croatian statement. I will guess that Bleiburg is something you just learned about. The WWII puppet government in Croatia was despicable, but it did not represent the majority of the region, so articles that refer to ALL Croatians as puppet government stooges “Ustashe” generalizes in a dangerous, and racist way. At Bleiburg, Innocent people (can women and children be ustashe?) were killed along with puppet government members trying to escape.

    According to the southern poverty law center, Oregon, with its population of just over 4 million, appears to have a disproportionate number of hate-based organizations within its borders. You have the pacific coast knights of the KKK order in your state. No KKK in the state I live in.

    But SPLC is a bit of a scam. Some basement dweller throws up a website with references to Wotan and they go on the list and out go the fundraising appeals.

    “My two grandfathers, their brothers and my grandmother were all killed by these fascists who have been honoured today,” said retired electro-technician Cedomir Jaksic, 63.

    “It is not normal that a city such as Sarajevo, which was terrorised so much in both World War Two and the last war (in the 1990s), allows something like this to happen,” he added.

    The jails are run by the white supremacist groups. It's disgusting.

    Which is why in my first post I specifcally said the far right. Nice to see so many protestors in Sarajevo today against the Mass. Disgusting that the Catholic Church in Rome was so deeply involved in it and that they haven't ex-communicated any priests who take part in it.
