Czech Nationalists Conjure Hitler with a ‘Final Solution’ to the “Gypsy Problem”

31 Jul

Extremism is something that I have had little exposure to, but this morning I was struck smack in the face with this timely reminder of fascist elements in Central Europe:

Far-right party wants to relocate Roma to India

The Czech National Party is unveiling a 150 page document, detailing their plan to buy land in India and forcibly relocate Romani. The title of the plan is: ‘The Final Solution to the Gypsy Issue in the Czech Lands’ evoking Nazi Germany’s “Final Solution to the Jewish Issue”. Though the Nationalists claim that they do not want to kill Roma, but merely move them.

Dzeno’s chairman, Ivan Vesely is quoted in the article as stating that “Romanies have lived here for over 500 years and we are still considered foreigners”.
Coupled with the finger-printing and Roma camp destruction in Italy, it appears that Anti-Roma fascism is back with a vengence. The ability of Europe to quell this uprising will hinge on public opion. It is not believed that the Czech National Party will win the 2010 election, but anything less than a multi-national rebuke of this development will enable such extremists to gain footing little by little.
