Czech President Mocks Media, Declares Himself An "Agent Of Putin, Trump, China And Israel"

Tyler Durden's picture

Taking the recent escalation in global conspiracy theories, according to which such and such president is a Manchurian Candidate of this or that foreign power, to their next comedic level, on Friday the Czech Republic’s conservative Euroskeptic president, Milos Zeman, declared that he is an agent of not only Putin, but also various other leaders and nations, during a press conference where he announced his intention to run for a second term.  Speaking in Prague, Zeman launched his 2018 re-election campaign, and during the televized event vowed not to change his controversial conservative platform, which includes prioritizing Czech interests over pan-European ones.

Zeman has often been at odds with the government of Social Democrat Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, which has been a supporter of Brussels on issues like anti-Russian sanctions and immigration. Though largely a figurehead like in many other European states, with limited executive authority in the Czech Republic, Zeman, who won the office in 2013, remains one of the country’s most popular figures, especially in the villages. Among other policies frowned upon by Brussels, he has advocated nurturing closer ties with Russia and China, supporting Israel, and limiting the inflow of asylum seekers from Muslim nations.

When asked by a Russian TV channel whether he was concerned about being branded a Russian agent, Zeman - who like Trump has been accused of having a pro-Russian bias by the local press - satirized the Czech media for criticizing his position on Moscow.

“I am an agent of Russia, and particularly of Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin” he declared, speaking in Russian. “I should add that I am also an agent of the Chinese President. Lately also of the new American President. I am an agent of Israel, which I have been supporting all this time.”

On a more serious note, he then clarified by saying that, in reality he is the agent of only one country, the Czech Republic

Zeman said media criticism was among the factors that had prompted him to seek re-election. “Each of their attacks encouraged me more to run. Thank you, Czech media,” he explained.

As RT adds, the only other contender for the presidency is businessman and writer Michal Horacek, who has launched a campaign with the slogan “We can do better.”

Zeman will name the country’s next prime minister before he leaves office. Sobotka’s Social Democrats are running an uphill battle against their ruling coalition rivals, the ANO movement of billionaire Finance Minister Andrej Babis. In taking a page out of the Trump playbook, Babis' campaign is based on rooting out corruption and running the country like his business, an idea that resonates favorably with many voters.

Sobotka, who won the party’s leadership on Friday, argues that Babis dislikes democracy and has conflicts of interests. Zeman may favor Babis over Sobodka to form a new coalition government, if neither party wins a majority of parliamentary seats in October.

".... he was quoted as saying on CNN when asked about Punxsutawney Phil's influence upon the election".  Punxsutawney Phil was later heard mumbling something about; "We can do better."

How easy is it to relocate to Czech Republic?

Looks like my kind a place!

Can you imagine the influx of smart good people to a place where they have low tax, no crime, good food and beautiful women?! Czech needs to copy some of the Swiss model and grab those pharma companies and suck the good minds back to their country. I know two very bright czechs who moved from Czech R. to switzerland because of better pay.

I hear Sweden is looking for new citizens, but of course you have to be a rapefugee to gain admittance.

haha ..excellent - i like this guy ..woops..i guess that makes me a czech peasant.

exactly highlights the hysteria of the libtard press looking to ramp up ratings by telling lies about the world and creating wars with their hypocritic (not a typo) oaths .

the MSM hypocritic oath is to report the exact oppisite of the truth and reverse a position and report the opposite in a few months.

"I am an agent of Israel, which I have been supporting all this time."...

Either...

A) He's a "fence sitter" that has nuclear material ready to go off "inside his own Country" if he doesn't do what George Soros tells him to do?... As we recall this guy who was worried about the same thing happening "in his own Country" a few years ago (http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-manhattan-nuke-russia-putin-2014-3) when Israel's embassy workers went on a Worldwide strike!!!!

Or

B) He's a "bed wetter" with the most capable nuclear ballistic missiles pointed at his Country from the East that otherwise wouldn't be "pointed at him" if he didn't have NATO in his "neighborhood"!!!

If I were you Milos I'd be making friends with B) that has all your future energy and solvent banking needs because it's not in either you or your Country's interests to be threatened by Nation(s) to your West that are collectively $60 Trillion in debt with NO energy to control the more they attempt to obtain it through the use of FORCE by pretext(s) like this one (http://www.ae911truth.org/)

By the way Milos...

After what Israel, U.K. and U.S. did to Ukraine 3 years ago you can forget about the notion that Israel is just going to abandon their joint "Wahabbi project" in their 68 year failed attempt to obtain more land and oil using the American whore to GET THE JOB DONE, and that Russia will simply welcome them with open arms!!!

Michael Jackson was refused entry into the Czech Republic to perform because he was, in their view, morally corrupt and Black.

My kind of people.

Gee,I was in Prague in 1996 or 97 when Michael performed and the city went nuts. We bailed early and were just outside the concert hall headed for the subway when the fireworks went off over our heads indicating the end of the show. That noise bounced off the narrow streets making it sound like a war zone.  Very nice city to visit then.

A good sense of humor by this politician,

that also smashes the msm back to its rat hole.

As my parents are from the Czech Republic, I was permitted by the Czech Government to obtain official Czech citizenship and a Czech passport 20 years ago.  Two years ago I renewed my papers and renewed my Czech Passport.

Initially I got it because I wanted to bypass any Visa issues using a Canadian passport whenever I decided to visit anywhere in Europe.  I was concerned with regards to all the muzzie invaders over the past 2 years, but seeing as the Czechs have been telling the European Union punters to stick those rapefugees up their asses and that the Czechs weren't going to recognize muzzlims as a religion, I've felt a whole lot better.  Good to have the passport now.  Just wish the economy would be better and maybe I could get a business set up there.  Oh, and I speak the language fluently.

Does that mean you hate Muslims ?

Czech economy is by far the best of all the former soviet allies. And nearly muzzie free. One of the best place to be in Europe.

A nice country to visit and should be a desired destination what with the rapugee crisis destroying what were normally the prime cities (Paris and much of France, Bonn and much of Germany, Stockholm and much of Sweden). Lots to do in Prague and the surrounding cities.
