Prague – Pirates received sharp criticism from the Prime Minister and chairman of the ANO movement, Andrej Babiš, during today’s parliamentary interpellations. Babiš called them definitely the country’s greatest threat, a promigrant neo-communist party, the extreme left and neo-Marxists. He said this in response to an interpellation by Tomáš Martínek, a member of the Pirates. Martínek asked him why he criticized the proposal to abolish the tax exemption on the sale of securities. The Pirates pushed this proposal into the tax package approved by the Chamber of Deputies, which is now in the Senate. Among other things, Martínek said that Babiš spread disinformation about the Pirates.

Martínek stated today that at Tuesday’s press conference, Babiš attacked the Pirates with, according to him, meaningless comparisons, which would rather sit on a State Security collaborator. “Why are you criticizing the proposal, which was also voted for by the YES movement. Isn’t that because you found out that you couldn’t apply the tax exemption yourself and had to start paying some taxes as an individual?” Martinek asked.

“I’m so glad you suggested it. At least we know what’s going on. You’re the extreme left. You’re the neo-Marxists who found out in Prague if anyone happened to have a big apartment, and if they had a big one, we’d tax them, “Babiš responded.

Martínek called it a lie, saying that the Pirates never talked about the size of the flats. According to him, Babiš spreads misinformation. He also asked if Germany or Austria were the extreme left.

Babiš then quoted various critical comments from the media and the Internet about the pirated proposal. He called the pirates fanatics, among others. “You are the biggest threat to this country. The biggest, definitely. Promigrant neo-communist group supported by the European Parliament,” the prime minister added.

The Deputy Speaker of the House from the Pirate Party, Vojtěch Pikal, who chaired the meeting, pointed out that government representatives should answer questions and stick to the topic.
