Russian and Czech relations have heated up ever since a Prague district assembly voted to remove a monument of a wartime Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev.
RadioFreeEurope reports that the Czech Foreign Ministry called in Russia’s ambassador to the Czech Republic on September 13 over comments that Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky made about the mayor of the Prague district who voted for the statue. Medinsky compared the mayor to a Nazi party official.
In the meantime, Russia’s Foreign Ministry responded by saying that the decision, “won’t be left unanswered.”
Some see Konev, whose forces freed much of Czechoslovakia’s territory during World War II, as a brutal enforcer of Soviet rules in Central and Eastern Europe in the aftermath of World War II.
Konev’s statue has been defaced several times, one of the most recent occasions being on August 21, the 51st anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.
In response to this, Prague 6 district Mayor Ondrej Kolar put a tarp on the statue, which provoked pro-Russian supporters to remove it while others laid flowers at the statue.
“Deputy Foreign Minister Chmelar reminded the ambassador of the Treaty of Friendly Relations and Cooperation between our countries, which the Czech side strictly respects, assumes mutual respect and equality, and stressed that the issue of the statue of Marshal Konev in Prague 6 is an internal affair of the Czech Republic,” the Czech Foreign Ministry declared in a statement.
“He also warned against abusing history for political purposes and fomenting passions in this area,” it continued, addressing Medinsky’s comments about the Prague mayor.
On September 12, the Russian Embassy in Prague claimed that Prague 6 had launched “a campaign that offends the memory of Red Army soldiers, and the Czechs and Slovaks who were fighting to liberate Czechoslovakia and its capital from Nazism.”
The following day the Foreign Ministry in Moscow warned that this removal could become “a noticeable irritant” in relationships between the two countries and “seriously darkens their atmosphere.”
“We hope that the initiators of the unprecedented action, which is being prepared, will come to reason and will realize all consequences of their actions,” the Ministry added.
While the American Left is relentlessly pushing for political correctness and trying to deface monuments of American heritage, Central and Eastern Europeans are trying to re-assert their history of anti-Communism by removing monuments of figures who were responsible for the oppression of millions of people.
This represents a marked difference politically and culturally from the ever-increasing tide of leftism in America and the growing influence of right-wing populism in Central and Eastern Europe.
NASCAR Fraud Bubba “Smollet” Wallace Cashes Out on Noose Hoax, Lands Huge Endorsement Deal with Beats by Dre
It pays to be a race huckster in diversity-occupied America.
Affirmative action NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace is cashing out on being the Jussie Smollett of the sports world, inking a lucrative deal with Beats by Dre to sell audio equipment.
“We weren’t going to announce this until later this week, but hate cannot win the day,” Beats said on Twitter.
“No one should ever be asked to apologize for standing up for what’s right …We are proud to welcome (Bubba Wallace) to the Beats by Dr. Dre family,” Beats added.
Wallace had a confrontation with President Donald Trump on Twitter on Monday, in which Trump reminded the world that Wallace is a fraud who performed a hate hoax crying wolf about a noose in his garage that never existed.

The Trump administration is standing its ground in opposing this shameless race-hoaxing narcissist who still has the gall to act like he is some kind of a victim.
“Look,” said White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, “the FBI — as I noted — concluded that this was not a hate crime and he believes it’d go a long way if Bubba came out and acknowledged that as well. This was not a hate crime, as noted by the FBI.”
Big League Politics has reported on how Wallace and NASCAR embarrassed themselves by claiming a garage pull-down rope was a noose:
Another hate hoax has unraveled after an FBI investigation has determined that nobody ever placed a noose in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage stall at Sunday’s race in Talladega, Ala.
The FBI released a statement today regarding their investigation into the incident:
“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.
The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.
The decision not to pursue federal charges is proper after reviewing all available facts and all applicable federal laws. We offer our thanks to NASCAR, Mr. Wallace, and everyone who cooperated with this investigation.”
In addition, Wood Brothers Racing released a statement noting that the so-called noose was just a garage pull-down rope the entire time.
Although FBI resources were squandered on the case, social media figured out the hoax long before the federal investigation was concluded.
The continued embrace of Wallace following his public disgrace shows how deeply delusional and dangerous the Left has become.
