But then the brutal editorial hand in Slobodna Dalmacija recklessly censored Jovic’s article, so that the second edition of the Wednesday issue appeared without musings about “mixed marriages”, “delayed outset puberty”, “uncontrolled urination”, “cocaine induced hallucinations” and “disturbed identity”! All these complexes turned into simply “complex-like syndrome of Oedipal complexes”! Thus, in a typically Stalinist manner, commentary of a distinguished Croat journalist was literally mutilated: brilliant assertions about anti-Croatianism, Croat-phobia, hatred for everything Croat, Orjuna ideology, Orjuna methodology, Orjuna-like violence, cooperation with foreign spies, slandering of Croat history, Croat church, Croat army, Croat lettuce… remain, but not a trace of mixed marriages, cocaine-induced hallucinations and other crucial inventions!
How long will Croat journalists, especially those with clear nationalist orientation, be exposed to torture of censors?! Why is Josip Jovic denied the right to freely express his opinion? Why would he have the right, without offering any superfluous arguments, to write about Feral’s anti-Croatianism, Orjuna-like ideology, violence, Croat-phobia, selling out to foreign powers, Communism, and “complex-like syndrome of Oedipal complexes”, while he is denied the freedom to write, also without any argumentation, about Feral’s mixed marriages, uncontrolled urination, cocaine induced hallucinations? Gentlemen censors, free speech cannot be blocked! Just like defecation in the midst of dysentery cannot be stopped!
As Jovic’s colleagues, we are shocked by this action of the editors of Slobodna Dalmacija. We remind them that Josip Jovic, as an extremely patriotic Croat author, proven nationalist and opponent of everything Yugoslav freely published even during the worst Communist oppression in the long gone year 1989. Then, for example, he wrote about possible “dissolution” of the former Yugoslavia into independent states, to spite Croat-phoebes, supporters of Ojuna, and pro-Yugoslav traitors: “In the conditions of ethnically mixed population the principle ‘one people, one religion, one state’ can be implemented only with pure violence and with arbitration from abroad. That is why I personally believe that dissolution has less than one percent of chance of happening, probably because I fear that sort of outcome the most.”(Vjesnik , February 19, 1989)
Therefore, we repeat: Gentlemen censors, , free speech cannot be blocked! Just like defecation in the midst of dysentery cannot be stopped!
