A look into the soul of the Pirate Party in the Czech Republic: Muslim Europe is ok, we will silence Israel, we will leave the monument to the victims of the war to the skaters


It is nothing new that the Pirate Party is a special group, whose members and supporters are not entirely clear about fundamental issues, from Czech membership in NATO to respect for private property. Although they themselves are at least seemingly opposed to being labeled as extreme left-wing progressivity, some of the figures associated with them sometimes scatter wisdom that Marx and Lenin would not be ashamed of. But the more attention is now being paid to pirates, given their growing preferences, the more it turns out that devastating social engineering and neo-Marxism may not be by far the worst that can be expected of them.

Last week, for example, the current pirate chairman and prime minister's candidate, Ivan Bartoš, approached Muslim migration twelve years ago. "Migration is a natural thing. If, as we already see in France and Germany, Europe is to be Muslim within ten to fifteen years, I have no problem with that," he said in an interview at the time. Today, he calls it youthful recklessness, claiming that his views have evolved since then. At the time, however, he was not sixteen or eighteen, but perhaps not over twenty years old. The candidate for future prime minister had no problem with Muslim Europe in almost thirty years.

In recent days, another high-ranking pirate - the mayor of Prague, Zdeněk Hřib, has also revealed peculiar views on global and major foreign policy issues. Typical of his work at the head of the capital is that he did something by not doing anything. Specifically: unlike many others who posted the Israeli flag in support of the Jewish state after the Palestinian attacks on Israel, the mayor did not do so. Given that Hřib appeared in photos while hanging flags, starting with Tibetan and ending with LGBT flag, it is hard to consider it anything other than an expression of political opinion. But again, nothing surprising - Tomáš Tožička, who previously posted an image of the Israeli flag on social networks with a swastika on the Star of David, was to run for the Senate last year.


If both of the above examples can still be considered political views, which are, to put it mildly, controversial, but whose supporters undoubtedly have a right to them, Pirate Senator Adéla Šípová has gone far beyond this limit. She contributed twelve words to the discussion on social networks, where the suitability of two monuments commemorating the Czechoslovak victims of the Second World War was discussed. However, it was worth it: "I would leave the one in Klárov, it's a good skate ride."
