The Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright involved in a verbal altercation with pro-Serb activists
Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright called protesters "disgusting Serbs" when they confronted her at a book signing in Prague.
Two videos showing Albright in a verbal altercation with a group of activists contesting her role in the Yugoslav Wars were posted on YouTube.
Prague-born Albright was at a bookstore in the Czech capital to sign copies of her memoir 'Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948.'
The videos show Albright being approached by members of the group Friends of Serbs in Kosovo, led by Czech film director Vaclav Dvorak, whose movie Stolen Kosovo blames the American-led NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999.
Dvorak approached Albright and handed her a DVD copy of his documentary to sign. At the same time he displayed a poster linking Albright's decision to back Kosovo in the war against Serbia to some of her personal business interests.
A scuffle between the activists and the former Secretary of State's staff ensued.
Albright, visibly vexed, threw a piece of paper at the demonstrators and shouted at them to "get out!"
Then, as someone is heard telling her she is a war criminal, Albright answers back "You're a war criminal," before yelling "disgusting Serbs! Get Out!"
Albright served as US Secretary of State under Bill Clinton from 1997 to 1999. She is unpopular in Serbia since she played a pivotal role in the NATO intervention in Kosovo in support of Albanian separatists against the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, led by war criminal Slobodan Miloević.
Earlier this year it was reported by Bloomberg that an investment company headed by Albright was bidding for Kosovo'e state-owned post and telecommunications company.
I hadn't heard about her carpetbagging venture, but it doesn't surprise me in the least.
I hope that region of the world makes her stay very uncomfortable.
Goodness! It must be the season for liberal nervous breakdowns.
Call the men in the white suits ....LOL!
The Clinton Administration did the same thing to the Serbs that Bill did to Juanita Broderick.
On a grander scale.
Somehow I know this is going to come down to a Christian/Moslem split.
Didn’t those “disgusting Serbs” save her life when she was about five years old during the war?
Albright was bidding for Kosovo'e state-owned post and telecommunications company.
Yup....and Clinton/Albright were on the wrong side.
It didn’t take very much to expose her racist views.
It’s a little more complicated than that. Croats are Catholic, and Serbs are Orthodox. Their identities more or less emerged over their religious affiliation (Croats use Latin Alphabet, Serbs Cyrillic etc).
Croats and Serbs have conducted atrocities against each other for hundreds of years, and against the Muslim Bosniaks and Albanians.
Leftists should go visit the Balkans whenever they cry about people disagreeing with Obama as being “bigotry”.
Pravoslavniphobia on full display.
Someone upset the cleaning lady.
You’re leaving out some of the atrocities: the Bosniaks and Albanians have committed atrocities against Serbs and Croats for centuries, too. And, Bosniaks are the same ethnicity as Croats and Serbs, but Muslim, their identity also emerged over their religious affiliation.
No hint of bias on your part, eh?
Indeed, if the Nazi-allied, Jew-hating Muslims of her childhood prevailed Madeline wouldn’t be here today.
The cleaning lady is back in the news
It has been suggested that perhaps this hateful old embarrassment to America can retire to a nice comfortable little villa in, say, Serbia, and then just let nature take its course?
It was meant to be implied, not as bias. I wasn’t maliciously whitewashing the Bosniaks and Albanians.
Take a breath and relax. I don’t think that the Muslims of the Balkans are innocent victims, nobody in that region is innocent.
That is both broadly, and in minutiae, quite incorrect.
Serbs are Orthodox and Croats are Catholic. Yes but their animosities boiled over in the WWII, when Croats collaborated with Nazis and launched a genocide against the Serbs. Muslims from Bosnia and the Albanians joined that venture in large numbers - on Croats’ side.
The Serbs, to some extent retaliated for that during the recent civil war.
The Serbs did and do detest Muslims of all ethnic backgrounds particularly the Turks and and Bosnia Muslims who are all converts, mostly formerly being Orthodox Serbs.
