In the matter of fact, it’s hard to decide who should be pointed out first. Jadranka Kosor or Milorad Pupovac. However, ladies should go first. So, the moment when the Government president (and HDZ president as well) refused to dissociate herself from counting the blood cells in the nationalistic manner, performed by the member of HDZ Josip Djakic during the pre-election meeting, was the same thing as calling for all the hooligans of any kind to freely chant over the stadiums ‘’Kill, Kill the Serb!’’ or to write graffiti letters ‘’Serbs on willows’’ (Croatian slogan calling for hanging of Serbs) on every single building they passed by.
When she decided just to put on a smile when they asked her for the opinion, as the boss of the executive regime in the state, considering her party member counting the names of the potential ministers of the potential government of Zoran Milanovic, followed by his comment about the potential ministers Rade, Veljko, Rajko or Ranko, as well as Zoran who was compounding some kind of Serbian, but not Croatian government - Jadranka Kosor offended every single tolerant, good and lucid person in this state who wants to look forward towards the future, not towards the past. No matter if that person was Serb or Croat.
It is a tragedy for her election strategy to be agitating and to be described as some kind of combination between ‘’we will easily pass through’’ and ‘’this boat will sink when I’ll be gone’’. So if HDZ manages to win over the elections with this strategy, things will be proceeded in some kind of manner as ‘’it will be easy since we are the winners’’. Then they will say that HDZ was not the nationalistic political party by emphasizing how HDZ was revolted by those kinds of failures, especially the ones from that primitive fellow Djakic. In the case of HDZ losing the elections, they won’t care for the circumstances of their agitating politics since they think that the boat should really sink if they don’t rule this country. It is a tragedy for pointing out and mockery on the national basis to be tolerated by this kind of politician (Kosor) who once herself experienced that kind of a mockery.
Every extreme opponent was counting her blood cells over every single web page by dragging out the information about her Serbian mother whose maiden name was Vlaisavljevic. The people considered that information as a main argument why she shouldn’t have taken over the prime-minister’s seat. The same tragedy (or comedy) are PM’s words about the red alert that threatens Croatia in case of the left coalition victory, and those words were told by the politician who was a member of the Communist alliance when she was young. It is a tragedy when Josip Djakic, who was accused for his violent behavior once, was listing up the ‘’suspicious’’ names such as Rade, Rajko or Ranko, no one of his party colleagues who applauded, didn’t recall Rade from HDZ, a ‘’great Croat’’ Buljubasic who once was an employee of national electricity company Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP Group) who received his salary but wasn’t obligated to attend his job since he performed his political duty as a party member. That Rade ‘’the great Croat’’ didn’t bother Josip Djakic or Jadranka Kosor at that time.
And now Milorad Pupovac, the Serb without pride. Wouldn’t be a logic reaction that he resigned from the coalition with HDZ when he saw that the boss of HDZ won’t dissociate herself from Djakic’s statements? Wouldn’t that be the reaching point from where there is no way further? Is there any sense to mention that those words actually describe HDZ and that the party should carry out its own discussion considering that statement? There is only a month and a half before the elections. What does SDSS have to lose if their members decide to leave the coalition party that insults people in such a way, and those are the people that party represents on a political matter? They have nothing to lose, but they could gain a lot. They would show the credibility and the determination while protecting the dignity of the Serbian nation. With their lowered heads they confirmed once more the clientelistic nature of their party, the party that should try to grab their own piece of a cake during five or six weeks till the elections.
How can Slobodan Uzelac attend the Government session, where he performs his duty as a vice-president, when he’s being aware of HDZ’s perspective that considers him as a second-class politician, someone who is less valuable and less important? Where is his human pride when he allows his identity to be disrespected in such way?
Since 2003 HDZ has entered the coalition with the main Serbian political party in Croatia. It seemed like the political differences haven’t endangered the civilized levels of communication until now. It seemed like HDZ, as the most powerful party among other ruling political parties, was taking credit for building the bridge between Croats and Serbs and considered that bridge as their great success. It seemed like every person’s opinion was for a political cooperation to be most relevant since it sends out a message to common people that the war trenches have been buried, that the war had been terminated, and that people should look further in the future to be able to live together. Due to her fear of losing the elections, Jadranka Kosor allowed the unacceptable.
Josip Djakic is the MP of the political party that is proud of being a part of demo-Christianity, Europeism, democracy, tolerance… He doesn’t have rights to raise a flames of passion and to initiate the hatred. The Croatian taxpayers - and a large number of Serbs among them - are not paying him for this kind of the statements. The fight for winning over the elections can’t be an excuse for everything. And Jadranka Kosor should know that. It is not up to Brussels to warn her about every single thing.
