January 16 dictatorship*

Nice weather for this time of year brought people out onto the picnic areas, but not to the polling stations. Which only makes sense – voting has long been replaced with pointless circling of numbers.

Novak Djokovic, X. and Y.

Let’s apply the standards that Judge Kelly applied to the Djokovic case and give everyone the right to have his or her voice heard, instead of just “loading” them back on the plane…

Despicable song

The Priboj police is celebrating the birth of one police officer’s son with a song so dear to them. And it goes like this: “Srebrenica, you are so dear to me, I wish you happened three more times…”

Doctor D

The media lynch of director Goran Markovic has been ongoing for over a month now. It started after the decision of the Film Center of Serbia not to award funds to Markovic, Zilnik and Dragojevic.

Undermining justice

Does the number of misdemeanor charges point to the conclusion that the police used so-called intelligent video surveillance – cameras and software for digital, biometric face recognition?

Vucic’s Apocalypse

Should the excavator smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to it the other also. This is not quite what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, but that is how the police in Sabac understood it.

Gas scam

What is all the excitement about? 1,000 cubic meters of gas coming to Serbia via Ukraine and Hungary costs $270, but with the new pipeline the price would be reduced to $155.

Vukovar 1991-2021

DwP – The fall of Vukovar, the birthplace of the Communist party of Yugoslavia, also represents the defeat of the Bolshevik project, in the sense of the country that died there, and globally.

Serbedzija – persona non grata

As soon as it was announced that Rade Serbedzija will have a concert, it was sold out. As soon as it was announced that Rade Serbedzija’s concert in Vinkovci was sold out – it was banned.

A culture of insulting reason

The photo of a girl holding a book with the question “Do you have trouble with grammar like people from the south of Serbia?” is a reminder that there is still life in a morally infected environment…

The cunning of fools

If there was any room for doubt, now it’s gone – the government led by Aleksandar Vucic has decided to sacrifice the health and lives of the citizens of Serbia for the sake of its own ratings.

What is the Serbian world to us

DwP – Although the Serbian world really is a copy – or, a ripoff, if you will – of the Russian world, the role of those two worlds in their political contexts is completely different…

Death and us

When, how, and why did we, the citizens of Serbia, decide to simply come to terms with illness, even death? In addition to all the (self) praise for the abundance of vaccines and new Covid hospitals…

Central celebration

The real star of this program was Milorad Dodik, who could not be clearer: “I have to let you in on a secret. We don’t like it when you call us Bosnians. We are not Bosnians, I am a Serb, I write in Cyrillic…”

Nationalization of Nikola Tesla

A fantastic tragicomedy could be written around the fact that the citizens of Croatia have chosen Nikola Tesla as one of the figures who will be featured on Croatian euro banknotes.

Interest

Telekom will pay an incredible 100 million euro per season, or a total of 600 million euros, for the exclusive broadcasting rights of the upcoming 6 seasons of English Premier League matches.

How knowledge grows

Some of us are only now learning that, along with knowledge, ignorance has been growing in Petnica for years. Ignorance of abuse, ignorance of coercion, ignorance of blackmail.

Bad joke

I have never before heard a president of a country, even Serbia, in the middle of a five-hour speech on Kosovo calling on the people to make children to fill Serbian empty factories.

One woman’s struggle

The final verdict against Ratko Mladic coincided with another verdict. I am talking about the decades-long struggle of Fata Orlovic from Srebrenica, which symbolizes the life of Muslims in Eastern Bosnia.

Black armband

DwP – Black cardboard squares, one square meter each, were piled one on top of the other in front of Palace Albanija and hundreds of people would walk up to them and take them, without any order.

What is scandalous?

The reason that has been given for the recall of the ambassador is that he signed a letter of support to the LGBT+ community in Poland, without first informing the minister or the ministry.

Vucic and Ljotic

Vucic couldn’t have chosen a better day to rehabilitate Dimitrije Ljotic than Victory Day. The logic is simple. Ljotic’s men, fascists though they may have been, sang Serbian songs. Thus, they were patriots.

When is now?

A group of twenty or so military-age men is marching through the main street in Borovo Selo, chanting “Kill the Serb”, singing “Oh my Croatian mother, we will slaughter the Serbs” and similar songs…

Oscars and unrealistic expectations

Now that the Oscars are over, leaving many around here disappointed or thrilled that the film ‘Quo vadis, Aida?’ didn’t win, it is worth pointing out the continuous clash with reality in these parts.

Gomorrah

Marinika Tepic informed the public about sexual abuse of women and girls in Jagodina. Her visit to the forbidden city and the courage she needed to face Palma’s “Tigers” caused great turbulence.
