Senator Marco Rubio: Apologize to the Serbs!

Sen. Rubio, pay attention here!

Florida has a large, growing, and politically aware Serbian-American community. You cannot afford to alienate us by thoughtlessly repeating vicious slander against the Serbian people.

A message to my Serbian friends.

It has come to my attention from a Serbian friend regarding a speech on foreign policy made by Marco Rubio. At approximately 2016 into his tape, Senator Rubio says (to paraphrase): “The American forces have been the greatest force of good in the world during the past century. It stopped Nazism AND ETHNIC CLEANSING BY SERBS!!!!” In other words, condemning an entire race of people, comparing them to Hitler’s Nazism and the character assassination of the Serbian people.

You can read Rubio’s speech HERE.

Furthermore, it appears the Senator has been getting advice from Senator McCain. (Go to approximately 2015 on the above video.)

You can also reach Senator Rubio at:
317 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington DC, 20510
Phone: 1-202-224-3041
Fax: 1-202-228-0285

I strongly urge Serbian organizations and Serbian churches to challenge or protest the inflammatory and damning words of the Serbian people by Senator Marco Rubio.

Zivela Srbija, Zivela Kosovo!



Everyone, please pass this along!

Get over yourself. Serbs were ethnically cleansing the region. If you weren’t there, I assume you weren’t involved personally, so Senator Rubio’s comments hardly count as a blanket indictment of all Serbs.

You have not offered any credible evidence that this is so. That is because there IS no credible evidence for you to cite.

And no, it won’t do to simply repeat allegations that have already been refuted many times over.

Read Julia Gorin’s blog before you comment here again.

Senator Rubio is basing his view simply on the official reports the Clinton administration left available, or on what Congress decided to maintain, or what the media preserved. Serbia was “bad.” That was the official American line, and, in my opinion, remains one of the greatest failures of the Clinton Administration (and Bush Administrations), and one of the most tragic moments in modern American history. It was all propaganda–against Serbia. All to defend Muslims–the Albanian invasion of Kosovo, ultimately.

You are correct, of course.

But Sen. Rubio won’t know any better unless we tell him! The media/political pogrom against the Serbs and against anybody who resists the tranzi-probressive/pro-Islamic agenda is all-pervasive. That’s the old media.

We are the NEW media! That’s why we blog!

Thank you once again for your efforts on behalf of the truth!

To the Honorable Senator Marco Rubio,

I was made aware of a speech you gave in which you state “The American forces have been the greatest force of good in the world during the past century. It stopped Nazism AND ETHNIC CLEANSING BY SERBS!!!!”

I would like you to further elaborate where America stopped ethnic cleansing by Serbs?

1. Possibly was it in Krajina- where the Serbian population was expelled during Croatia’s operation storm? (which was backed by America)

2. Maybe it was Kosovo- where 400,000 Serbs existed prior to NATO bombing and only 60,000 remain under constant pressure of being cleansed by Pristina under American guidance.

We Serbs do not have an issue with a lot of the past events as we fought for our freedoms honorably (against great adversity) and have moved on. The issue is the lies of the past are continually being unearthed and we the Serbs and yet again required to defend our freedoms. It really is the case of the victim being classed as the aggressor.

Jesus stated “Forgive them, Father, as they do not know better.”

Thanks very much!

Serbians were the victims of ethnic cleansing in Croatia, Bosnia and in the Province of Vojvodina.

The Serbs have been the most ethnically cleansed of all peoples in the Balkans. They fought the Nazis as one of our staunchest allies during both WWI and WWII. Senator Rubio’s comment is racist, ignorant, and a desecration of history!
