The regime’s media have been forcing the public letter from left-wing elitists down our throats for the last two days, trying to prevent Janez Janša’s third mandate as prime minister. The letter in itself is not credible at all, because of the array of the far-left leaning people, who all depend on the taxpayer’s money; and besides that, many of them are also former prominent politicians – many of whom were found to have been active politically.
At Nova24TV, we have already reported on the public letter from the left-wing elitists, titled »Let’s protect the delicate Slovenian democracy from authoritarian rule!« Among others, the letter was also published on all of the media outlets, owned by the transitional left and controversial foreign funds. The letter was signed by 75 people, who are well-known privileged academics, described as »esteemed names« by the editorial offices. They all depend on taxpayer’s money, and many of them are, in fact, former far-left politicians, rather than any kind of intellectuals. You can find all of them in the alphabetical list below.
