Anti-LGBT Slovak PM shot in assassination attempt

Slovakia's vehemently anti-LGBT prime minister was shot in a city in the central part of his country today. No tears from me.


"While the progressive Misho (Michal) decides whether he is a boy, a girl or a helicopter today, for us gender ideology in schools is unacceptable and marriage is a unique union between a man and a woman," a smiling Fico says to the camera. "I will certainly never be a supporter of them (LGBTQ people) being able to marry, as we see in other countries," Fico told a press conference recently. As same-sex partnerships are not regulated by law, LGBTQ people in Slovakia are not legally considered related to their partner and cannot, for example, obtain information about their health, or inherit. Slovakia also does not recognize marriages contracted abroad.

Martin Macko, executive director of the Inakost ("Otherness") Initiative, an umbrella organisation of Slovak gay and lesbian organisations, voiced concern about the rhetoric from Smer-SD. "Smer-SD not only uses the spread of hatred towards LGBTQ people in its campaign but also pledged in its programme to enforce legislation that prohibits talking about LGBTQ people in schools," Macko told AFP.


Hate begets hate.
