As we reported here last week, angry Slovenians have been demonstrating against the immigration policies of their current government, and those of the EU. First there was a demonstration in January, and then on February 20 an estimated 3,000 people demonstrated against a proposed migrant center outside of Kranj, north of the capital Ljubljana.
Our Slovenian correspondent Andrej Turjaški sends the following video from AXJ Slovenia News of a demonstration held in Ljubljana last Saturday. Actually, it was two rival demonstrations: Slovenian patriots (opposing immigration) vs. the Antifas (supporting immigration). Notice that the patriots are carrying Slovenian flags and other symbols of their love for their country, while their leftist opponents are carrying Communist flags and wearing the Red Star.
There are several inspiring moments in this video. It’s always heartening to see patriots on the streets wholeheartedly proclaiming their love for their country and their culture. Pay attention to the moment when the police warn the demonstrators that if they don’t stay back, then they (the police) will use physical force against them. The camera pans at that moment, and you see the front ranks of the patriots: ordinary middle-aged citizens, men and women, grandmothers. Compare them with the rag-tag mob of Antifa thugs.
The patriots and the police are not really on opposite sides, however. At the end of the video, one of the leaders of the patriots uses the megaphone to tell the crowd: “I suggest that we withdraw in solidarity with the police, because the leftists will not! Police officers have too small salaries.”
And pay special attention to the patriots’ chant at about 6:48:
