“Sheep, fools, narrow-minded? Prague against rednecks?!” And here it is. Babiš took a strong stand for the “rural”

Presidential candidate Andrej Babiš (ANO) thanked him for all the votes he received in the first round of the presidential election in his regular show Cău lidi. “1,952,213 votes is an amazing result. In the parliamentary elections in 2021, the YES movement had 1,458,140 votes. It was truly beyond my expectations,” he noted.
“I get a lot of texts, emails, messages and greetings. Often from people who wrote: ‘I didn’t think I would ever vote for you, but now it was no other way.’ A lot of people wrote. Seniors, young people, employers and employees who are afraid of the future, believers, tradesmen, Roma, even holders of firearms passports, by whom I have always stood. People from cities, from villages. I appreciate each of your votes, whether you live in cities or villages. And that’s why I was shocked how a lot of people on Twitter, who talk about truth, limited love and democracy for every other word, attack people living in villages for voting for me and talk about them as sheep, stupid things. They wrote that ‘Prague and love must win over everything and hatred’. They wrote that ‘Educated and intelligent Prague is saving the dull vidlákov,'” said Babiš, pausing to insult the countryside.
“After all, there would be no cities without villages. We would be nothing without the countryside. A real democrat would never think of insulting a village, insulting our Czech countryside. A true democrat respects a different opinion. And even if you did not vote for me, I am happy that the voter turnout was the third highest in the history of the Czech Republic – 68.24% went to the polls. It shows that the Czech Republic is a mature and self-confident democracy, even if some claim otherwise and constantly bring down their own country. I have always believed in our country and our people, I believe and I will believe, no matter how the second round turns out. We are entering an uncertain time and I am convinced that a president who can handle today’s crisis should sit in Prague Castle,” he added, saying that his program is clear because he wants to help people.
Who has a bigger “shell” from the time of the previous regime?
voted: 22203 people
According to his words, he is the only one who will fight for Czech interests and help our citizens. “It is obvious that Mr. Pavel will listen to the current government at the Castle, which is going to raise taxes, enforce payment at the doctor, limit freedom of speech, and other anti-social things,” said Babiš, adding that he is also the only one demanding peace.
“I don’t think that lasting peace is an illusion. We have had peace in Europe since the end of WWII. It’s been 78 years and I want it to continue. Securing peace is also the reason why the United Nations, the European Union, and NATO were created, and we must try to bring conflicting parties to the same table. I don’t want the war to spread. I’m not a general. I am a diplomat,” said Babiš.
“I am the only one who has experience and success in business and politics and will immediately work for you,” the ex-prime minister also noted. “Everyone knows that things were better under Babiš. I know languages and have contacts with presidents and prime ministers around the world that I would use for the benefit of our country and our citizens. The next fortnight will be about everything. I know very well that I go into the second round as an outsider. All the polls say they will lose in the second round. Most of the media, as well as the government, have already chosen their favorite. Now it’s up to you. On the citizens. I will need you. Now more than ever. Every voice will be needed. Every vote is important to me. And I don’t care if you live in a big city or a small village. One vote can decide. The one that sounds my support before the election and the one that you throw at me in the election. Thank you for that! And I also thank my wife Monica and the whole family very much for their support,” concluded Babiš, saying that he will fight until the end.
