Hungarian Way vs. Anal Way

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.

The Other Day, the Speaker of the Czech President Replied to my Tweet

A Czech journalist of Russian origin, Alexandr Mitrofanov, who holds all the proper views. Is against conservative Poland and Hungary, against Putin, and pro-EU accused Poland and Hungary of acting in the interests of the Kremlin.

“According to the [Czech President], Zeman, the Visegrad Group should be united in its support for Poland and Hungary in their conflict with the EU. If the Warsaw Pact cannot, the V4 must do but against the West and to the benefit of the Kremlin.”

So naturally I asked how does it actually benefit the Kremlin, and received a reply from the speaker of the president, Jiří Ovčáček.

“How does it benefit the Kremlin?”

“This is the beauty of it. Poland explicitly supports the Belarusian opposition, defends the Baltic states and is at loggerheads with the Kremlin. Where is the logic in this? If there is anyone that cooperates with the Kremlin, it is the old EU member countries.”
