As conveyed by newspaper “Pres RS” Filking did it last Tuesday, in a very popular show called “Gert’s world.” At one point, Filking commented that “the world is full of such Brejviks” and his co-host interupted him for a moment with the statement: “At least we captured this Brejvik.”
Filking then followed up: “We have captured many others, we caught those Serbs who acted as damned pigs, which killed hundreds of thousands and expelled millions of people, we caught them. Do you think the Serbs condemn them? No, the Serbs glorify them as heroes. Who are the psychopaths then? Is the majority of Serbian people retarded? Or just those who were convicted of war crimes?”
Besides being an actor and journalist, Filking is actively involved in politics and a member of the Christian Democratic Party, which has 19 members out of 349 in the Swedish parliament.
Gert Filking (61) is married and has six children.
Well, I wasn’t aware that we had something like Anti-Serbism monitoring. Good to know that someone finally thought of that, although I doubt that an apology would change one damn thing, except maybe making any potential Serb hater more cautious when making such remarks in public. It won’t change their perception of Serbs, it won’t stop the equation of all the Serbs with those who committed the crimes in the civil war in Bosnia. It won’t change the belief that the Serbs went in that conflict unprovoked, because they enjoy killing of (fellow Serbian) Muslims and Croats in Bosnia. But it’s better than nothing, better than taking it quietly every single time and having no voice whatsoever.
I am so sick and tired of always being in defense, always having to prove something, always having to apologize and so rarely accepting an apology myself. At this point I would much rather talk about the fact that we Serbs, with a lot of help from our puppet government, are on a road of self-destruction: With this natality/mortality rates, a non-existing government planning, inadequate social program and poverty in spite of natural wealth of resources in Serbia, 500 years from now there will be no more Serbs (this estimation is from back in 2009). If we are to reverse this process, each couple has to have at least 4 children. But that’s a theme for another post…
