Why we love the Czechs

Read this article to find out how justice comes finally to a vile communist.

“Suffocate the bitch.”

It was June 27, 1950, when these savage words were spoken to a hangman behind the thick, grim walls of Prague’s Pankrac Prison in communist Czechoslovakia. The unfortunate soul the executioner was instructed to make suffer as much as possible before her death that day was Czech national heroine and anti-communist dissident, Milada Horakova.

“Don’t break her neck in the noose” – “Suffocate the bitch – and the others too” was the full, hideous text of hatred spoken just before the extinguishing of Horakova’s life.

But an incredible 57 years later, these barbaric utterances to increase her mother’s suffering were resurrected and hurled back in a courtroom at their sadistic speaker, Ludmila Brozova-Polednova, a former communist state prosecutor and last living participant in Horakova’s farcical trial.

In a stunning turning of the tables, Brozova-Polednova, now 85, was herself on trial last October in the Czech Republic for the role she played in the judicial murder of the anti-communist Czech martyr. In what was one of the most sensational Stalinist show trials in post-war Eastern Europe, the former communist prosecutor had recommended the “absolute punishment” (death penalty) for Horakova and her 12 co-defendants. But at her own trial, the Czech court leniently sentenced this criminal to eight years in prison for accessory to murder.

  1. Sounds very much like Osmani Cienfuegos (Camilo’s brother) and his order to let a group of “anti-revolutionary” prisoners suffocate to death inside a windowless, locked cargo vehicle while they were transported to “justice.” It’s still known as “La Rastra de la Muerte,” and Osmani is still alive and part of the regime.
