Europe's War on Truth and Reason

The recent assassination of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico has unsurprisingly not led to a reflection on the part of European officials and corporate media on their constant labeling of him as pro-Russia and a promoter of misinformation, which has created an environment where his opposition to supplying military assistance to Ukraine is perhaps not uncommonly viewed as an unholy act. This labeling of Fico began after he and his party won the Slovak parliamentary election in 2022, with many in the corporate media describing him as a "pro-Russian populist." His party was suspended from the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats group in the parliament for questioning NATO and its focus on bread-and-butter issues over identity politics.

Slovakia's opposition to Project Ukraine, which has been a disaster for the country, led to Fico and his party being labeled pro-Russia, with some even suggesting that Fico was a threat to EU and NATO. Despite the fact that there is no evidence that Fico has any sort of connection to Russia, the constant comparisons of Putin to Hitler and the possibility that Slovakia could join the Putin sympathizers have likely made Fico's opposition to military aid for Ukraine all the more inflammatory.

Fico's opposition to military aid for Ukraine and his status as a center-left politician who campaigned on what he believed were in the best interests of Slovakia, which included ending support for Project Ukraine, have made him a target for those who oppose Russia and want to root out misinformation. This type of environment has led to the suppression of democratic rights in the name of freedom and is exemplified by the recent EU Digital Services Act, which is intended to combat misinformation online. This type of legislation is a stark reminder of the fact that elected officials who are pushing for war with Russia are afraid that the people will realize that their reasons for the war are bogus and will be punished.

The labeling of Fico as pro-Russia and a promoter of misinformation has not stopped since his election, and there has been no reflection on the part of European officials and corporate media on their role in creating an environment where opposition to military aid for Ukraine is viewed as an unholy act. This is in stark contrast to the EU's efforts to combat misinformation, which has been largely ineffective.

Ultimately, the war on truth and reason in Europe is a result of scared people who know their reasons for war are bogus and are afraid the people will realize that and punish them for their epic malfeasance. This has led to a suppression of democratic rights in the name of freedom and a climate where facts, opinions, and warnings are all viewed as dangerous and must be banned.
