Czech Far-Right Party Discovers Television

The BBC reports on the uproar over an anti-Roma TV campaign by the far-right Czech National Party (NS).

The NS advert spoke of "a final solution to the Gypsy issue" and carried the slogan "Stop Favouring Gypsies" over images of Roma.

Its alarming and sad. But there is no easy solution to this final solution business. Last year, former Czech Prime Minister (and all around Eternal Remont favorite) Mirek Topolanek "tried to get a ban imposed on another far-right group, the Workers' Party." A Czech court threw out the case.
