your comment is the most demented I have read in this forum since a long time. And that's remarkable since there are people like Vulcho, sa-sha, Yane and a few others who cannot really be called 'intelligent', to put it mildly.

You write: "But the protesters do not like the results of the elections." Are you just dense or malicious? The people would accept any result of elections and any government that is respecting the people's vote. This government started its work by: 1. appointing a mobster as head of DANS (a kind of Bulgarian Super-FBI/CIA/NSA-like body), 2.appointing commie spies as ambassadors, 3. appointing a convicted thug and criminal as regional governor, 4. appointing another thug, pimp, and mobster as his replacement as MP, 5. appointing another mobster as Deputy Minister, 6. appointing an armed-and-dangerous nutcase as president of the committee of ethics, and so on and on...are you really trying to tell us that the Bulgarian people have voted for that??? Then, Sir, you are an idiot!

You write: "These are typical communist tactics." Ah, because the communists are in the government, the people who demonstrate apply communist tactics to get rid off the commies - you are an idiot!

But it is as we all know "communist tactics" to write postings like your demented one and pay 5-leva-plus-sandwich to guys who simulate "violent demonstrators".

Now p*ss off, you commie dumbass!

And I have no doubt that you're either a Loony or haven't got a clue what you're whittering on about.....or most likely both.

There were protests in the winter. The government resigned. There were elections in May. But the protesters do not like the results of the elections. So now they wish to bring down the government by making hostages of the members of parliament...
These are typical communist tactics. I have no doubt that these same people would have been active in bringing down the elected government of 1947, ushering in decades of communist rule.
