The Istanbul Convention (IC) and its absurd theories on “gender identity” arrive in the Czech Republic. Its supporters are attempting to silence all opposition.
The Czech Republic is one of the ten EU states that has not yet ratified the convention, which contains bizarre theories regarding “gender identity” that will be legally binding on the states that ratify the IC.
We wonder what its “enforcement” mechanisms will entail?
* Prague Catholic priest Petr Pitha faces a criminal complaint due to his statements warning against this global monstrosity pushed by radical feminists, far-left NGOs and other self-proclaimed “masters of the universe”.
Father Pitha warned that ratification of the IC would result in “perfectly perverse” laws against the traditional family, elevating homosexuals to a superior class.
Where is PM Andrej Babis, who rails against the EU migrant quotas as an attack on the sovereignty of the Czech nation, but seems to be trying to stop any real discussion involving the powers granted to the IC – which, once ratified, legally binds a country to its provisions? So much for the sovereignty of the Czech Republic.
Maybe Babis approves of the type of indoctrination that takes place in Sweden’s Preschools, where boys learn to dance and girls learn to yell.
As Realisté Praha asks: What is motivating Babiš to hand over power to radical, international non-profit organizations to meddle in the affairs of the Czech Republic?
How can he oppose EU diktats on one hand, while he allows his other hand to expose his country to the agenda of the Istanbul Convention or UN Migration Compact?
Babis already has “trust” issues in the Czech Republic. If he submits to the demands of the Council of Europe and ratifies the IC, his credibility – already questioned by many – will be gone.
However, according to LN, the ratification of the Convention in the Czech Parliament is not certain. Both Chambers, including the Senate, where the majority consists of conservatives, have to agree. The ODS and STAN factions in the Senate are reserved for the convention, and the people of the country reject it.
Babis will be making a huge mistake if he fails to oppose the IC, one that he may not be able to recover from in the future.
