Saw a bit of her speech yesterday while channel surfing (I'm from Slovenia, but my hometown is ~20 kms from the border so we get some of your channels) and unfortunately I was just finishing my Pepsi. Needless to say my nasal passage and nostrils got hurt.
I keep tabs on your politics, especially with the current bullshit bickering over NLB and general douchebaggery over you guys joining EU, so that whole ordeal was so ridiculous I would've pinched myself if my nose didn't get flushed with Pepsi.
People as malevolent and ignorant as her shouldn't be able to excercize their right of free speech, I'm still astonished over her statements and the fact that she actually gets invited anywhere.
I just hope she won't cause any permament damage over there and that the morons in our parliament don't decide they should ask her to spew her idiocy here.
Sing to me, raven,
I miss her so much.

I have been there a couple of times. Amazing beaches, fairly nice people and even briefly dated a Croatian girl, she was an amazing person and still consider her a great friend. I honestly hope to see Croatia in the EU soon as if I would really like to buy property there. I also have friends who bought a summer house in Split. Amazing place.
So for exemple I do care about Croatia. I wish the best for them. Just as I am sure many other European neighbours and the EU in general cares.
I mean I don't even know why I am writing this post. I honestly think you were trolling from the get go.

This actually leads back to the original topic. This is one of the many reasons why Croatia should move forward with European integration process and rid itself from religious loonies, while keeping American loonies in America and let them deal with it. Europe and its different parts has enough issues to deal with, we dont need to import American social politics.

Hey, look at the bright side, only 15 years ago your "level of political polarization" was much higher than the current USA level, isn't that progress?
I'm having a hard time believing that sex Ed is splitting a country in two. As for that women speeches any one with a brain will just ignore her. If those in power are to dim witted to just brush her off maybe it might be time for new officials.
It looks really awesome, I need to go to Croatia on vacation sometime.
Are people over there tall btw? I went to Gymnasium with a dude who's parents are Croatian and fucking hell he(and his dad to) are tall mother effers, he's like 2.10m, a cool guy, he's a pro handball player now, and his father is a police officer.

Shit like this actually goes through your fucking brain?
It is sad to see that there is still remnants of intolerant sexual thinking, good old legacy of the church that has and still does more damage than good.
Humans are as all animals, sexual creatures, to deny the existence and normality of sex is honestly criminal to the mind and soul (however you want to define soul as)
Croatia (modern) is a fairly new country and it is sad to see its politics being tainted so fast by intolerant people with an agenda of spreading it.
Intolerance and short-mindedness is akin to a disease, it is restless, it feels the need to impose and to criticize, it spreads and does harm...
Tolerant people are always at a disavantage as they wont do much to stop intolerance, because... well they are tolerant.
In Osijek, it's not even that big of a news, basically everyone i know just saw that the woman is well....an idiot. I'm just waiting what other nonsense she will spit out while she is here, but honestly it doesn't matter.
I don't think the country is split as the OP said, as i see it the elderly (50+) don't want the sex education to be implemented, they laugh and joke that the kids should teach them. I for one am for it, because this country is a hellhole currently breeding potential alcoholics left and right and with the current upbringing i'm scared for the future. I think it should be here for the next 20 years when we get a good generation of people, but I don't think my generation (I'm 21) will be able to teach their kids about sex like normal people across Europe.
And one more thing the OP said, that SDP has eliminated corruption....I'm afraid we are far far away from that. The problem with our politics that when we elect a party, that party only provides for people who voted for them and screws everyone else. A political party should be responsible for ALL the people, but alas this country still has some bad roots from communism whether you want to admit it or not. I don't know if you remember in the news a couple of weeks ago , there was a poll of somesort that 70% of croatians want to be boss at their work place compared to the 30% of europe. It's because in our culture bosses do nothing but gather the fruits of their employees labor. Our country still has a pretty primitive mentality because many of us still live in villages where things don't....evolve so to speak. But I believe that a better future is on it's way ahead if we work hard enough

Go and tell my baby sister
Not to do what I have done
Go and spurn that house down in New Orleans
