Aspiring Senator Loses It: Calls Anti-Communists ‘Stupid’ Durning May Day RallyČTK
Prague, May 1 (CTK) – Hundreds of Czech Communists (KSCM) celebrated May Day at a rally in Prague today at which they presented their candidates for the elections to the Prague Assembly and the Senate scheduled for this autumn.
There were verbal exchanges between the Communists and roughly 30 opponents of Communism who waved the flags of the USA, Ukraine and NATO.
Communist hardliner Marta Semelova called on the police to disperse the Communist opponents.
The Communist candidates said the housing shortage was the main problem Prague faced.
“Housing is our priority, people should have some shelter,” Semelova said.
It is a shame of the capitalist system that people, including pensioners, must be afraid of ending up under a bridge, she added.
The Communist candidates said the public transport in Prague should be for free.
The group of anti-Communists was carrying banners warning of Communist crimes and saying “Red monsters.”
Semelova said the opponents were trash.
One of the banners suggested that Communism and Nazism were the same. She said this had offended World War Two Communist resistence fighters.
She said she would sue the authors of the banner.
Karel Skoupil, a Communist candidate for the Senate, said the opponents were stupid and asked them “to go to hell.”
