Croatians have been “vaccinated enough” and should be allowed to accept the risks of becoming infected with COVID on their own terms, according to President Zoran Milanović.
President Milanović broke with the majority of his contemporaries in expressing frustration over medical authoritarianism and COVID hysteria pushed by the mainstream media and globalists.
“Croatia is ‘not sufficiently vaccinated,’ unlike the E.U. average. We are only at 50 percent,” Milanović said in recent statements to the press. “I don’t care. We’re vaccinated enough and everyone knows it.”
“We need to know what the goal of this frenzy is. If the goal is to completely eradicate the virus, then we have the goal. I have not heard that this is the goal. If someone tells me it’s a goal, I will tell him he’s out of his mind.”
Milanović stressed it is “impossible” to eradicate COVID before tearing into the legacy media for damaging the public discourse.
“I start every day with CNN and those few channels and I wonder if I am normal or are they crazy,” he said. “They spread panic. They do it from the beginning.”
“There is no life without risk, without the possibility of getting sick. People get sick from a thousand other more serious things, and while that’s happening we’ve been talking about COVID-19 for a year and a half.”
Milanović says he was initially concerned about the virus and willing to address the matter for the first year, but is fed up with the nonsense that has carried over into 2021.
He is only the president and not the prime minister so his hands are tied, but he makes great points here.

While Milanović’s rhetoric is refreshing for many, his functional power level is eclipsed by that of Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.
