Milan Kohout is a man who attended the same basic school as I did when I was 8-10 (but he did so many years before me). He was a dissident in the communist Czechoslovakia. At some point, he emigrated to the U.S. and moved to Roxbury, a black neighborhood in Boston. He became a radical fighter against the evil called the white people, and a super hardcore communist despising the money, banks, and the European and American civilization. He is an "artist" – see some Google images associated with his name.
Check e.g. his nude critique of religion and multiply it by 100 to have an idea about his life's work.
We have been in the Czechoslovak pub in Boston (e.g. Harvard pub) together many times, and we also drank beer in pubs in Pilsen – sometimes accidentally – most recently just a few months ago. He's a professor of some softer-than-diluted-excrement subject at Tufts university. Sometimes, his proclamations sound so insane that I have always thought that he was just making fun. But he wasn't. His opinions are genuine. You may imagine that even some of the most far left loons at Harvard and elsewhere are right-wingers relatively to Mr Kohout. But they're still pretty close to each other. ;-)
One week ago, he was the most spectacular guest of an interactive program on Czech Public TV. The program is called "You have the floor" (literal name: "you have the word") and the host is Mrs Jílková, a lady who has been supervising similar "tough" discussion programs.
His contribution to the program is rather amazing – you may see the emotions flying – and I decided to translate it for you.
I think this video may be useful as a mirror for many PC people in the U.S. and elsewhere – to see how insanely unhinged they look when they interact with people who are sane and rational about basic questions of life, e.g. the generic Czech people who were invited to the program.
People at Tufts University may see what sort of extreme, utterly impolite, and thoroughly deluded activities are considered "scholarly work" at your school.
The full 1-hour video of the program is available here. Aside from Kohout's outbursts, there have been many important ideas and reactions in the debate. For example, one old man in the audience sounded and looked like a Sudetenland German but he was actually Syrian. He enjoyed the support of the other folks because he argued that we can't accept that many people in Czechia and instead, the West should stop supporting the terrorists who are being exploited as wild cards by the Western politicians. (Applause.)
There were several other defenders of the "yes, let's admit them" paradigm in the room, too. A very young man (philosophy student Lukáš Matoška) was asked what those immigrants' jobs will be. Of course, he pretty much explicitly admitted that all of them will be on welfare. We have the money and we're a civilized country so we have to feed all of them. Needless to say, the opponents of immigration applauded him because his claim made it clear that disruption of our country is the outcome that even the supporters of immigration realize very well.
The number of Internet reactions to Kohout's exhibition has been immense. The articles generally attract hundreds or thousands of comments. People have been stunned who can become a university instructor. Well over 99% of the comments disagree with Kohout, to put it mildly. The number of Google queries for Kohout and "You Have the Floor" (in Czech) increased by 66,000%.
I think that Kohout must be courageous if he's willing to walk on the Czech streets now, actually. It's a matter of when, not if, Kohout will become a Capon. ;-) Czechs are just way too rational. They want to think about likely consequences of their decisions. Decisions have consequences and convergence of our streets to the pictures of South Italy in the video above are possible consequences which are rather likely. People just don't want such outcomes. Such consequences of decisions seem more important than some abstract musings about some collective guilt or equality of all people on Earth or whatever.
