That lying is the way Serbian politics works, in addition to the ongoing facts that they give through the use and misuse of stories of suffering to others caused by them, is also confirmed by the late Serbian nationalist politician and writer, Dobrica Ćosić. “Lying is a form of Serbian patriotism and a confirmation of our innate intelligence,” he said. “We lie artistically, imaginatively and inventively,” he said.
Lying and propaganda as a way of life in Serbian politics have their origin in the lack of facts and documents that could prove the truth. The truth must remain hidden, because facing it is painful. The truth is the empowered criminal policy, carried for generations with the aim and purpose of hating everything that belongs to others. This Serbian criminal policy does not seem to be decriminalized. On the contrary, it is still being institutionally strengthened. Criminality, fascism and nationalism are institutionally preserved through lies and propaganda, using the suffering of others as their own. The irony and pain become even greater when the suffering inflicted on others is caused by the Serbs themselves.
A few days ago, when the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, and the head of Republika Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik, commemorated in Prijedor in Bosnia and Herzegovina the event that took place on the territory of Croatia in 1995, on the back wall there were photos of the Bosnian mother with her baby, depicting her as a Serbian woman fleeing the war. It is naïve, to say the least, to twist facts to report on criminal politics in an era when digitization and information technology have reached their peak. It would be possible for the public to take this trick of the Serbian lie for granted if this possibility offered by the speed and accuracy of information technology did not exist.
When the witness of the photo became known, the organizers of this commemoration, i.e. the government of Republika Srpska, immediately blamed a private marketing company from Serbia, which was hired for this purpose. Evading blame through finger-pointing is the standard of Serbian political thinking. The company hired to market and promote the event was probably professional, knowing the importance of the photo to describe the truth of the crime, but the description should be authentic and not misused, and that is a lie. Even the suffering of another is to be plundered!
This does not stop the falsification of facts and the continuation of Serbian propaganda and lies. Not satisfied with this, a so-called Institute for Documentation of the Crimes of Republika Srpska of Bosnia and Herzegovina lists the children killed by snipers during the siege of Sarajevo by the RS military and paramilitary forces as Serb victims. Explanations for reporting crimes, such as wartime events, have taken other forms. If the RS blamed the massacre at the Markale market in Sarajevo on Bosniaks and not on Serb artillery stationed around Sarajevo, which fired incessantly at civilians, it is now proven that the identity of the victim is also known changed. If no one really took the first, they try the second. The same practice exists in the massacres in Kosovo. The massacre of Recak is for the policy of Belgrade a staging or something else, but not a state organized crime against civilians to eliminate the other.
Last year, the Russian Embassy in South Africa tried to use this kind of propaganda and deception. They misused the photo of a Kosovar Albanian mother who forcibly left her homeland with her baby. The attempt was to present the picture as an event of the Ukrainian war, from which the Russians are supposedly expelled. False propaganda as a model of Serbian and Russian policy has a tradition of application, but not longevity. /TheGeopost
