Unwittingly you’ve strengthened the support for the “Festival of Tolerance” ..now it’s pride [at least to prove a point]. Whatever works… honestly I think that someone must of paid you boys for the endorsement [the reverse even better].WE DEVIANTS welcome you and look, somewone even made you a fan club: KLAUS IS GAY / Václav Klaus je gay
Ultra-conservative organization calls on mayor, ambassador to cease supporting Prague Pride
An ultra-conservative citizen’s initiative, D.O.S.T., has delivered an open letter of protest to official supporters of an upcoming gay rights march in Prague. Initiative leader Ladislav Bátora, who is also an advisor to the education minister, called upon Prague Mayor Bohuslav Sobota and American Ambassador Norman Eisen on Monday to renounce their support for the Prague Pride march, saying the protestors’ demands go beyond the limits of tolerance. Mr. Bátora, who once stood as an independent candidate for the now-defunct far-right National Party, also criticised the ambassador for “meddling in the internal affairs” of the Czech Republic. Last Friday, President Václav Klaus backed comments made by his deputy chief of staff, Petr Hájek, who referred to homosexuals as “deviants”. On the same day, thirteen ambassadors to Prague, among them those of Germany, the UK, the United States and Denmark, signed a joint letter expressing their support for the marchers.
President Klaus and Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg have both criticised the embassies for forming their support for the parade as a petition. In a statement published by Prague Castle on Monday, the president called the ambassadors’ letter an unprecedented encroachment into an internal political discussion and said they should know that the debate is not about whether or not the Prague Pride march should be allowed, but whether it should be held under the auspices of the mayor of Prague. Mr Schwarzenberg addressed the letter on the Foreign Ministry website, where he writes that it is counterproductive and excessive for the ambassadors to support rights that no one in the Czech Republic either denies or rejects.
