"Stolen Kosovo" Documentary Censored in Czech Republic: Suffering of Kosovo Serbs Cannot be Shown on National TV
That there can be no freedom of expression under the dictatorial regimes was confirmed yet again by the state-owned Czech TV, supposedly a "public service" which took part in the financing of the Vaclav Dvorak's documentary "Stolen Kosovo" prior to Czech Government's recognition of the mafia state on Serbian territory, but now, after their FM announced recognition of the fake state, refused to air it.
According to the Czech daily Aktualne, the representatives of the state television justify their refusal to show the one-hour documentary about the suffering of the Serbs in Kosovo-Metohija province by claiming the documentary is "unbalanced" and marked with "pro-Serbian bias", so "the tone of the documentary could cause negative emotions". To which Dvorak responded that the same could be said for the "Holocaust documentaries, where the Nazi Germany 'side' and 'views' were also appropriately ignored".
NWO Junk Formulas Used to Cover Up Plain Old Censorship
The authors of the expertly filmed documentary, who did not hide their disappointment with the state TV's blatant censorship, said that, while the Serbian television archives were used in some segments of the film (like the scenes of NATO bombardment and the footage of the carnage and victims of NATO aggression), not a single penny was received from Serbia or from Serbs for making of the documentary. At the same time, they have challenged the censors hiding behind the New World Order claptrap about "bias" and "balance" -- convenient empty phrases thrown around whenever the truth needs to be smothered -- to point to a single statement, image or a segment that is incorrect or false. An invitation that has, thus far, remained unaddressed.
The film which was first scheduled to be shown on Czech TV on March 17, the anniversary of the latest pogrom against Kosovo-Metohija Serbs in 2004, and than delayed for April, has not been aired yet. After the Czech Government has issued an illegal recognition of the state carved out on the Serbian territory on May 21, it has become certain that the "Stolen Kosovo" documentary has been taken off the broadcast schedule entirely.
Having their work censored by the state TV, the authors took their documentary to the alternative broadcast -- YouTube, where they uploaded their film in six parts and where it has received a wide, predominantly Czech audience. The Czech television is now using that as an additional excuse for banning the documentary, saying that the authors have violated the Czech state TV's right to exclusivity. So, they refuse to air it, but retain the right to be the first to show it, even if they choose never to do so. A kind of logic that fits perfectly in the world where an executioner must get at least the same amount of PR time as it takes to air the unpleasant pictures of his victims.
Total film is length is 60 minutes, but it had to be broken up into shorter parts for YouTube.
Part I, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10
Who was POTUS at that time?
I wish that it was "all Clinton's fault" and in fact, the majority of Republicans in Congress opposed it. But John Mc Cain was one of its cheerleaders and the NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia is what made McCain's name nationally known.
The FreeRepublic forums have dug as deep as any other media into the horror of US Policy in Kosovo. But the blame lies squarely on Co-President Hillary Clinton (yes, that’s right, Hillary) and her puppet feminist Albright as Secretary of State.
These two dangerous pols could not countenance a challenge to their ‘strong woman’ profile especially on the heels of the ‘male’ Holbrooke’s hyped success.
That Milosovich would not bow down to these two and lick their heels when ‘ordered’ to turn over a sacred history and land left Hillary/Albright with a typical maniac response, BOMB THEM! These megalomaniac amateurs could not think a step or two ahead, as to the consequences of denial of their ultimatum.
And the action in Kosovo was followed by a growth of anti-US sentiment throughout the Eurozone, so much so that when a completely justified War on Terror was initiated post-911, the Euros were no longer buying US credibility at face value when asked to join the effort.
My response to our friends across the pond is to thank God for the 22nd Amendment. We have a solid reliable means to dispense of our political maniacs as a last resort through term limits.
And anyone that knows this history should be estatic that Hillary will not be President. That people even exist that support her is frightening. Such people if they have any rational atributes must be severely ill-informed.
Carpet munchers, terrorist sympathizers and feminist welfare vampires pretty much make up the Clinton base demographic.
You said it, brother... <|:-)
Bump for later viewing!!!
In the film, they use the words of “one (unidentified) American politician” wwho said, “We do not choose our goals according tour friends, but instead choose our friends according to our goals”. Sounds just like Albright to me.
One particularly creepy segment showed some Albanian children playing together. The majority of the Albanian kids were Muslim, but the group of kids found a Catholic kid among them and started in on him about "how they would cut his neck".
Thanks for the links
