Slovakia is a pretty open society when it comes to discussing Islam.

Who wouldve guessed that societies open to discussing Islam also hate it?

Probably not. The EU presidancy is a rotating office that goes from state to state every six months, it's not an elected position and there's nothing anyone can do to stop Slovakia becoming president, so he can say what he wants. He's also something of a Eurosceptic afaik, so it's unlikely he's trying to work against Brexit. Also also, like many presidencies, it's a functional office rather than one with real power, it's not like the POTUS.

And, minor niggle, this guy isn't the next EU president, Slovakia is, it's just that, as PM of Slovakia, he'll be executing the office in practice.

To do anything major he needs other countries to buy in. Good luck with Merkel's stranglehold.

Some politician needs to introduce a bill defining islam as a political system with intent to overthrow the Constitutional government of the US.

It is.

Then outlaw it and ban all aspects of it including burkas and planning headquarters known as mosques. Every muslim must renounce the practice and be forced to pledge allegiance to the flag of the USofA. If they refuse, they lose citizenship and must be deported as a hostile enemy.

He's not an EU official, he's a eurosceptic head of state in a country who just happens to be next in line for the EU presidency.

I would say that neither Christianism or Judaism, but since these two ideologies currently aren't a real threat to people´s lives(for now) and the current state of "freedom", I stand behind that Islam should not be let to free practice in the US or anywhere where is not a current tradition. Its far too dangerous and retrograde ideology.

But think of all the contributions Islam makes to society today such as being the enemy in modern fps shooters!

Slovakia (formerly part of Czecho-Slovakia, formerly known as Bohemia) actually has a history of being one of the most religiously tolerant countries in the world, the start of the Hussite movement in the beginning of the 1400's, which can be seen as one of the main steps towards protestantism and then later secularism. Slovakia has a strong history of religious tolerance, and they would not oppose islam if there wasn't something inherently wrong with it.

It's important to understand he's not actually speaking for the EU when he said that, so he has no reason to lie.

Islam is a threat to the entire world. We shouldn't condone violence against it but we definitely need to remove it.
