Commenting article: Bulgaria Shocked as Nationalist Leader Triggers Brawl On Air

The anchor of a popular Bulgarian radio broadcast was forced to interrupt it after a nationalist leader and an ethnic Turkish politician went for a fight while on air.

"The physical clash was provoked by Volen Siderov, there is no point in beating about the bush or lying," the anchor Velichko Konakchiev explained from his studio later, referring to the leader of the nationalist party Ataka.

"The news about the collapse of the communist regime was announced first from this studio, there has never been physical fighting here. I have always managed to be in control of the situation, but today I just couldn't," he added.

"the perpetrators of physical violence should be prosecuted in the criminal courts for their acts of violence"

HAHAHAHA! There is not one example of a violent criminal actually convicted and sent to prison in Bulgaria. The Bulgarian justice system has a revolving door policy a.k.a. catch and release. The only people who actually get in trouble for violence are the tourists. That Aussie guy comes to mind.

Moral ('loudspeaking') violence is out of consideration? It is not the same 'way'?

No matter what their political persuasion, the perpetrators of physical violence should be prosecuted in the criminal courts for their acts of violence. Any politicians that shrugs their shoulders are condoning it. That way lies Kristallnacht.

Why doesn't Islam have a place in Europe? It has as much as a place as Judaism, Buddhism and any other ism.. I think any extreme form of any "ism" is what creates the problems we are having. We are not having problems with Islam- we are having problem with extremist. In the past there were extremist Catholics, Presbyterians and perhaps even Shintoist...

Also, I would not call Bulgarian just yet- Bulgaria is far from been a western European state.

In the case of the moronic ATAKA members and its leaderships all they bring forth is stupidity. Volen baby sees himself as Aolf-baby-Hitler and his bunch of retarded morons as the "brown shirts".. jesus if you see them marching you can see that their knuckles still scratch the ground hahaha

I wrote: "Whenever they show their destructive intentions e.g. by provoking in public, they should instantly be dealt with in a harsh and firm way."

By "instantly", I mean already at the planning stage.

Here comes a good one:

Imagine if Obama was depending of the support of KKK in order to stay in power.

Uncle B must really be in deep shit.

Yes, but it only makes sense to look at the full picture.

The main threats against national security come from:

1. Far right extremists
2. Far left extremists (e.g. Anarchists)
3. Militant Islamists

All three groupings should be carefully monitored.

Whenever they show their destructive intentions e.g. by provoking in public, they should instantly be dealt with in a harsh and firm way.

That's NS for Dummies.

Just my two stotinki

Ataka is "creating" a self-fulfilling prophecy to establish their political relevancy.

Siderov although a retard is absolutely right. Islam has no place in Europe and especially in Bulgaria. Switzerland and France are dealing with it in a proper manner and its about time Bulgaria starts doing the same, as it has right to do so more than any other European country. What Bulgaria should do is look up Greece in how the country dealt with the Turkish minority there and do that in a swift and legal way.

Ignoring this issue will only make another Kosovo out of Bulgaria. With one difference, Kosovar Christians fled to Serbia when thing went bad. I don't know where Bulgarians plan to go, once their country turns into western Turkey.
