PM Expects Response to Cases of Discrimination and Hate Speech

“I expect all those from the moral police and others who definitely do not tolerate double standards to respond to such phenomena and to the appearance of discrimination and hate speech,” Plenković, who is the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) leader, said on Tuesday afternoon.

“I think it would be beneficial for the society if they reacted as the silence has lasted for ten days now, and I’m sure all those from the moral police will respond to that,” Plenković said while visiting Zadar.

Earlier on Tuesday, the portal had a pop-up question asking visitors to declare themselves either as human beings or HDZ members before proceeding further onto its website. The former option enables a visitor to have access to the news web portal, while the latter offers the portal’s articles about corrupt HDZ members.

The web portal says it has made the pop-up question as a sign of support to the owner of the Rijeka-based cafe called “Three Monkeys”, who, angered by decisions of the government and the national COVID-19 response team, said on his Facebook page ten days ago that HDZ members and supporters were not welcome in his bar.

Plenković also called on Social Democratic Party (SDP) leader Peđa Grbin to elaborate his statement that Plenković should be blamed for discrimination.

He wondered whether Grbin was actually referring to former SDP official Mirela Holy, who commented on “newbies” in the city of Zagreb, or the SDP mayoral candidate in Zagreb, Joško Klisović, who pointed out that he “does not come from Herzegovina but from (Zagreb’s) Hercegovačka Street.”
