Representative Body Of The European Parliament In Slovenia Has Put Together A Very Ideologically One-Sided Panel On The Media

The representative body of the European Parliament in Slovenia should not allow itself to have such an unbalanced composition at the round table. And this is not the first time something like this has happened. Socialist Katarina Barley is a member of the LIBE Democracy, Rule of Law and Fundamental Rights Monitoring Group (DRFMG), which often strongly attacked the previous Slovenian government during its term, and the views of the other representatives at the round table are well known. But where are the others?” Slovenian Democratic Party MP Romana Tomc was critical of the event. The European Parliament’s debate on the public media in Slovenia – which is supposed to be a democratic and pluralistic institution – was attended only and exclusively by leftists.

The superiority complex of contemporary (neo)leftists is manifested in the use of an assorted vocabulary that is so complex that the average “backwards, stupid, mentally stunted, emotionally withered, agrarian, unenlightened, rural, and so on” rightist simply cannot “get it.” Let us remind you that nowadays, the basic unit of leftism is no longer the proletarian but the (young, possibly slightly degenerate) intellectual, who is constantly fake and who pretends to be doing and saying one thing when they are actually doing something quite different. A prime example of such a hoax is Dušan Josip Smodej, who has successfully been “tricking” us all of these years into thinking that he deserves our money for his superb works of art while he was actually abusing his position of power to sexually abuse young women.

And he is not the only such example. Just think back to the three “Michelangelos,” who renamed themselves Janez Janša. This is a concept that is all about how to cover up the shameless spending of public money, or even some other more villainous, obscene matters, by means of futile and meaningless performances, installations, and so on, in which only a few dedicated individuals can see the intellectual, aesthetic and spiritual surplus (depths)… And they are doing a very similar thing with their clever use of language. When a neo-leftist says that something is a “public media outlet,” what they really mean is that this is “our own, leftist media, which is being financed by naïve and less mentally gifted adherents, and above all, by the pious common folk that goes to mass on Sundays.”

A very similar way of thinking also applies to “independent media and journalists.” The “civil society” basically also means “the masses of our helpers who pretend to be apolitical and receive public money as a reward for their loyalty,” and so on. A typical example of this is the Youth Plus Trade Union, which is headed by Tea Jarc. And in the case of Nika Kovač and the non-governmental organisation Institute of the 8th of March (“Inštitut 8. marec”), the gracious masters were at least clever enough to finance the project, for example, through the youth culture centre Pioneer home (“Pionirski dom”), which is owned by the municipality. In order to better understand the neo-leftists, one sometimes has to consult the “Glossary of Terms for Understanding the Left.” We are writing all of this because the left has prepared a new event to throw dust in the eyes of ordinary people.

When the leftists become “rural” and accidentally reveal that the emperor is naked
In light of this, we can understand why the Slovene Association of Journalists and the “independent” Marko Milosavljević from the Faculty of Social Sciences (Fakulteta za družbene vede – FDV) got upset when Prime Minister Robert Golob somewhat clumsily reassigned the socio-political workers of the “Uncensored” web portal (“”) to various high positions in his government, and when he said of the web portal’s editor Primož Cirman that he is “one of the best investigative journalists there are and that he would hire him anytime.” The thing is, Golob is not all that good at bluffing, which is something any good leftist nowadays should be. He is verbally less skilled and very hypocritical, and thus, he inadvertently revealed that the emperor is, in fact, naked.

Meanwhile, Milosavljević has recently revealed his true, noble colours. Apparently, his nerves got the best of him when he found out that Luka Svetina, a former colleague of our media house and his former student, was coming to the untouchable Radio-Television Slovenia, the national media outlet: “The public recognises party cadres who do not have any journalistic credibility. I think that the hosts of the show “Odmevi” (“Echoes”) should be top journalists and presenters who have proven themselves through their work and have some weight in the Slovenian arena.” Milosavljević also called Svetina a “party collaborator and promoter.” He also said of our media house that we are not actually a media outlet… He has probably not watched even a single tv show hosted by Svetina on Nova24TV. If he had, he would not have made such false statements.

But what if Milosavljević is actually not a professor and the Faculty of Social Sciences is not really a faculty…?
It would be very interesting to see the reaction of the “highly professional” and “independent” Mr Milosavljević if someone were to say of him that “he is not actually a professor, but just an old regime activist that infiltrated into academia.” Someone even wrote some time ago that our noble Milosavljević has a rather meagre record in COBISS (Co-Operative Online Bibliographic System and Services – the Slovenian library information system), considering the public spectacle he is causing. Perhaps Milosavljević should hone his craft a little more before moralising about others.
And what if someone were to say that
“the Faculty of Social Sciences is not really a faculty in the true sense of the word, but rather a selling point social science and Marxist ideas, and that the real academics are in the natural sciences and technical fields…”?

Now let’s go back to Golob. Some time ago, even the Sherriff of Ljubljana, Zoran Janković, said something similarly stupid about the “independent judiciary.” Namely, he told Croatian TV that he would never go to jail because “he has always been the biggest opponent of Janez Janša in the field of executive power.” Well, these are the kind of “silly” slip-ups that are most amusing to those who would like to make a fool out of all of us and continue to use us for whatever they want. A little less negative selection, dear leftists, and that should do the trick.
Well, this time, socialist and feminist
Katarina Barley has invited us to an online debate on “How to support and protect public media outlets in the European Union?” The event was scheduled for Tuesday, the 30th of August, at 10 a.m. at the European Union House at Dunajska 20 in Ljubljana.

Migrations of journalists into political waters are good because this gives their stories a new interpretation in retrospect”
In addition to Barley, the event was also to be attended by journalist Lenart J. Kučić, known for his “investigative” web portal “Pod črto,” who is otherwise on the payroll of “philanthropist” George Soros and is also known for having sold his soul to the extreme Left party (Levica). He became the “media advisor to the Minister of Culture.” In a show on Radio Ognjišče, Supreme Court Judge Jan Zobec had some interesting words for such “journalists”: “Migrations of journalists into political waters are good because this gives their stories a new interpretation in retrospect…”
Another person that was supposed to attend the event was Helena Milinković, who is known for chronically living through nightmares with “fascists” and “nationalists.” And the debate was to be moderated by Ksenija Horvat, known for glorifying the left-wing political activism and defending Jarec’s excesses on top of Triglav last year.

Here is the answer that the European Union House sent us to our journalistic question related to the event described above:
“Dear Sir or Madam,
regarding today’s public debate on public media outlets in the European Union, which was also attended by the Vice-President of the European Parliament, responsible for information policy and press, Katarina Barley, here is our answer: the topic of today’s event was the debate on the situation of public media outlets in the European Union, which is also relevant to the Slovenian media landscape. The public debate was organised in the context of the visit of the Vice-President of the European Parliament, Katarina Barley, to Slovenia.
Vice-President Barley is responsible for information policy and press and for the European Parliament’s offices in the Member States. Her participation in the debate is linked to her institutional role as Vice-President of the European Parliament, responsible for the press. You can find more information on her work here:
The guests who took part in the debate were invited to participate on the basis of their competencies and their work in the public media, which was the focal point of the discussion and, therefore, relevant to the debate:

– Lenart J. Kučić, representative of the Ministry of Culture (this Ministry is responsible for media legislation), Media Adviser to the Minister of Culture,

– Helena Milinković, representative of the Radio-Television Slovenia trade union, as the representative of the employees of the largest Slovenian public service media outlet,

– Jasna Zakonjšek as a representative of the civil society organisation Legal Network for the Protection of Democracy (“Pravna mreža za varstvo demokracije”), this year’s winner of the Citizen of Europe Award, awarded by the European Parliament,

– the debate was moderated by Ksenija Horvat, a renowned and award-winning journalist and author of the documentary programme Public Television in the Grip of Politics (2021).

The aim of the debate was to exchange views on expectations regarding the imminent adoption of the European Media Freedom Act (expected to be presented by the European Commission on the 13th of September) and other relevant European legislation and to reflect on ways to ensure that public service media in the European Union adequately address the current challenges. We believe that the panellists, with their repeated and proven expertise and excellent knowledge of journalism and the media, both professionally and from legal and other perspectives, are the right interlocutors to assess the state of public service media in the European Union. The discussion provided a clear and objective picture of the key challenges that the public service media are facing today, both in Slovenia and in the other EU Member States, and presented a balanced view of possible solutions.
Kind regards.”
