In an open letter to members of the United Nations Security Council, victims and political prisoners of the brutal communist regime that enslaved Bulgaria blasted Bulgarian communist and UN Secretary-General candidate Irina Bokova. In addition to highlighting Bokova's troubling communist background, the Bulgarian victims of communism also criticized a self-styled group of “Bulgarian intellectuals” who endorsed Bokova's “preposterous candidacy.” Among other concerns, the victims noted that almost all of the signatories on the endorsement letter were members of the Bulgarian Communist Party “and actively participated in all actions of the repressive Communist regime.”
United Nations “human rights” boss Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein appears to be cracking up as he violently and erratically lashes out at free markets, Western voters, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, gun rights, the nation-state, British Brexit leader Nigel Farage, Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, Czech President Milos Zeman, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, and other targets of what appears to be his deep-seated hatred. He also blasted Western voters concerned about open borders for their alleged “natural prejudice.”
Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, said during a talk at the Alpbach Media Academy in Austria on August 22: “Borders are the worst invention ever made by politicians.”
Over the last year, The New American magazine published (online and in print) a series of articles exposing UNESCO chief Irina Bokova, a Bulgarian communist operative surrounded by corruption allegations who was being pushed by establishment forces as the “front-runner” to lead the United Nations next year. Apparently the widespread dissemination of the information, along with the tireless efforts of anti-communist Bulgarians to sound the alarm, may have played a significant role in derailing Bokova's bid to serve as UN secretary-general. Unsurprisingly, communist forces in Bulgaria, which remain very powerful to this day, joined with their allies in the media to libel this magazine and its parent organization, The John Birch Society, for exposing the truth. From claiming that The New American has links to Turkish intelligence or the KKK to arguing that the magazine is part of an imaginary “Kochtopus” conspiracy, no discredited libel was too ludicrous for Bokova's friends. However, one independent media outlet in Bulgaria, Faktor, offered The New American and this writer an opportunity to respond to the charges and the conspiracy theories. The translated interview was published on Friday, August 19, in Faktor.bg. What follows is the English version.
