Prague – During the covid-19 pandemic, a group of anti-systemic people established themselves in the Czech Republic. They do not trust the state and the principles on which it is based. They do not trust the government either, they feel that their voice is not being heard in the current situation and the current social order. Conspiracy theories offer them an alternative. In last year’s report on extremism, it stated Ministry of Interior.
“Conspiracy theories often have a xenophobic element embedded in them, and thus find points of contact with various extremist or highly nationalistic subjects. Quasi-media platforms and propaganda workers of other countries also willingly work with these theories,” the interior said.
The ministry pointed out that the mentioned media platforms and accounts on digital platforms have brought with them a trend of aggressive behavior and “normalization of lying”. According to the interior, their outputs have a “strong radicalization potential”.
According to the inside, this group of people is becoming more and more isolated from society. “Its members find contact with extremist and xenophobic subjects and often become recipients and spreaders of the contents of quasi-media platforms. The short-term success of the protest group around the activist Ladislav Vrabel proves that it is relatively easy to mobilize it through social networks,” added the insider.
