Which way Visegrád man?
Václav Láska is a Czech senator, who suffers a serious case of cargo cult delusion. He toured the country few years ago giving speeches on how “the Czech Republic belongs to the West.” Above is his curious post, I translate:
The Hungarian way? The Hungarians are following only one way. How to become a vassal of Russia without the Warsaw Pact and the Comecon. Through Russian vaccines, through the construction of nuclear power plants by Rosatom. I would rather “go to the arse” than go the Hungarian way.
In Czech, the term “do prdele” to the arse is a common insult, identical in meaning to the Italian “va fan culo”.
Naturally, the responses to this magnificent tweet were often along the lines: “start packing suitcases.” I often responded to the suggestion that I should move to Russia with saying “you should move to arse, where you belong.”
I do not get what is wrong with Russians supplying a cure and keeping the lights on. And quite frankly, the choice between a “Hungarian way” and the arse can have more levels of meaning in our times.
