Dragutin Lesar, indepedent member of Sabor (elected on HNS list before parting ways with Radimir Čačić and Vesna Pusić) and former union activist, wrote a blog post about swine flu called "Swine flu and Human Stupidity". In it he suggest that the latest swine flu pandemic is far from global disaster as portrayed in media, and more of a clever way for US pharmaceutical companies to make money. Lesar's conspiracy theories aren't new or particularly original, but it is interesting to see them becoming part of mainstream discourse, since Lesar was hardly among Sabor members that could be mistaken for Tinfoil brigade.
Speaking about human issues, I can't not to mention javno.hr and its comment on swine flu, written by Amalija Šašek. In it she expresses same sentiments like Lesar, only backed by some more data gathered from Internet, including connections between first major swine flu outbreak and Donald Rumsfeld's first tenure as US defence secretary. She claims that the flu vaccinations coincided with presidential campaign and that Ford gained "extra support" and thus became president.
The article was published yesterday and it is still available in its original form. Apparently nobody cares about major Croatian news website claiming that Ford won presidential elections in 1976.
