Iconic former President Vaclav Klaus has said it is wrong to force the Czech Republic to become multicultural, arguing the only way to save the country is to leave the European Union (EU).
“The time has come to prepare our country to withdraw from the EU,” he said in a statement on Tuesday, declaring a Czech exit from the bloc to be “the only way we can fulfill our obligation of maintaining, saving, and passing on to future generations our country that we inherited from our ancestors”.
The statement by Klaus condemned the EU’s decision to launch proceedings against nations refusing to welcome third world migrants in a quota “dictated by Brussels”, calling for the proceedings to be contested “both in principle and vociferously”.
He told local media: “We reject the EU’s plan to use foreigners to displace Czechs, and we refuse to allow our country to be transformed into a multicultural society with maladjusted communities, which is what we see today in France and the UK.
“And that’s not to mention the now almost daily terror attacks which are linked to mass migration.”
