Diversity is the primary weakness of the small southeastern European country of Macedonia, which has endured a lengthy and intense political and now-violent struggle between its shrinking ethnic Macedonian majority and growing Albanian Muslim minority.
In December’s national election the conservative-nationalist Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization – Democratic Party for Macedonian National Unity (VMRO-DPMNE), supported mostly by ethnic Macedonians, won a narrow victory (but not a majority) over the Left-wing Social Democratic Union of Macedonia. George Soros, a billionaire Hungarian-American Jewish activist who funds Leftist causes throughout Europe, has pumped millions of dollars in the country in recent years to undermine Macedonia’s government. The tax payer-funder US Agency for International Development (USAID) has transferred almost $5 million to Soros’ Leftist groups in Macedonia. Tensions have escalated since December with the VMRO-DPMNE pushing for “de-Sorosization” and the Socialists pushing Albanian Muslim interests. Neither side has been able to form a majority government in the ethnically divided country.
The Leftist magazine The Atlantic reports that on Thursday the Socialists put together an alliance with Albanian groups to form a government. The deal would make Albanian an official language and give the growing minority more political power. Chaos soon followed as Macedonian nationalists viewed the deal as a threat to their national identity:
…Social Democrats (SDSM) announced that Talat Xhaferi had been elected speaker of parliament, paving the way for a coalition between his party and parties representing ethnic Albanians, who comprise between one-quarter and one-third of Macedonia’s population, to form a government. (No one knows the exact proportion because there has been no census since 2002, as the parties cannot agree to hold one.) Even though the constitution mandates that ethnic Albanian parties must be represented in every government, the conservative-nationalist Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization-Democratic Party for Macedonian National Unity (VMRO-DPMNE) has tried to portray Zaev’s coalition as a vehicle for a coup and eventual takeover of Macedonia by ethnic Albanians, who have higher birth rates than ethnic Macedonians.
ABC News reports what followed:
The hostility boiled over Thursday night over disagreements about the election of a new parliament speaker, leaving more than 100 people injured, including police, protesters and lawmakers.
By Friday, the previous night’s chaotic scenes had translated into a war of words between rival politicians despite calls for calm from abroad. In the evening, about 2,000 people held a protest outside the EU mission headquarters in downtown Skopje, calling for new elections.
Order has been temporarily restored, it seems, by the police. European Union and United States leaders were quick to condemn the action by Macedonian nationalists, of course, insisting that they were anti-democratic. This implies, of course, that Macedonians should sit back and watch as Leftists conspire with Muslims to take control of their country.
The reaction from Russia was quite different though, denouncing the Soros-US-EU-Leftist-Muslim take-over of Macedonia, ABC News notes:
Russia, however, had an entirely different take on events.
“The opposition, which lost the parliamentary elections, actually tried to seize power in the country by force, having deliberately elected the chairman of the parliament with a flagrant violation of the established procedures,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
It noted the speed at which EU and U.S. representatives had recognized Xhaferi’s legitimacy as parliament speaker, and pointed out his past as a former rebel commander during a 2001 armed uprising by ethnic Albanian rebels seeking greater rights in Macedonia.
“Such a reaction, coordinated with lightning-speed, is undoubtedly evidence that the incident was planned in advance, with the tacit consent of the ‘external curators’ of the Macedonian opposition,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
The ministry described Xhaferi’s election as “the unceremonious manipulation of the will of citizens with the aim of removing the legitimate government from power.”
That is where things now stand. A White Christian nation is on the brink of being subverted and destroyed. And the US and EU demand its destruction on behalf of a hostile Muslim population while Russia defends the native Macedonian people.
Macedonia was 71% Macedonian White Christian in 1961. By 2002 it was down to 64% Macedonian. During that time the Albanian Muslim population rose from 13% to 25%. It is estimated to currently be between a quarter and a third Albanian. By 2015 Macedonian births were barely a majority at 53% while Albanian births had risen to 33%. It is evident that Albanians will soon control Macedonia if present trends continue; Ethnic Macedonians will be a demographic and political minority in Macedonia, governed by a hostile Albanian Muslim majority supported by Soros and allied Leftists in the US and western Europe.
It should also be noted in the 1990s the USA led a bombing campaign and later occupation of much of the Balkans against White Christian nationalists on behalf of Albanian Muslims and an anarcho-terrorist group called the Kosovo Liberation Army. The US and EU created the Albanian puppet state of Kosovo on the ancestral home province of Serbian Christians. Except for tiny enclaves, the Serbs were then mostly liquidated from the US-backed country.
Will Macedonia be the next Kosovo?
