A Look at Serbia’s First Openly Gay Prime Minister

Serbia recently followed in the recent footsteps of Ireland, electing its first openly gay prime minister. The new Serbian premier is actually a PC double whammy – both gay and a woman.

Liberal outlets are considering Serbian President Aleksander Vucic’s appointment of Ana Brnabic to the position of prime minister somehow historic. On paper, this may be true. In terms of policy, the historic repercussions that will probably come from this appointment may not echo so positively.

The new gay Serbian prime minister suffers from the same problem as the new gay Irish prime minister – an unfortunate and scary lack of experience in leadership positions. Both Varadkar and Brnabic are young for their position. Varadkar actually set another PC record as the youngest person ever to hold the position of Irish prime minister. However, electing gay leaders simply because they are gay seems to be a trend in Europe these days.

Ireland and Serbia are far from the only countries doing this – they are actually behind the curve. Xavier Bettel, prime minister of Luxembourg, recently came out of the closet. Iceland first elected a gay prime minister in the year 2009.

Any conservative critique of any of these leaders is quickly shot down. However, the critique of the new Serbian prime minister is the same as the critique of the Irish prime minister. Before Brnabic took one of the highest positions in government, she only held one other government position – Minister of Public Administration and Local Government. She held this position for all of one year. Before this, she was a businesswoman who was focused on wind power.

How exactly does an expertise in a failing energy technology qualify one for the position of prime minister? The easy answer: It doesn’t. Although Serbia is hardly an economic power relative to the United States, this appointment highlights a disturbing trend that conservatives in the United States should take note of.

With left-ward direction of Serbia, the Trump administration has one less potential ally in Europe. There is also additional pressure for countries in that area to move away from Western conservatism, and into the waiting arms of a salivating Russia, the only other entity that can really provide military sponsorship for countries in that area.

The appointment in Serbia strengthens the ability of Russia to move freely within the area and affect policy, especially if Putin decides to hide his hand as he has been doing in the past few months. For all of his faults, Putin is quite a slick talker. He can reach out to other countries in what appears to be an acceptance of liberal policy in order to gain economic and military leverage. He is actually very good this, which is something that the United States should worry about.

Putin showcased his ability to sway even reluctant liberals in his handling of the Obama administration. Russia made unprecedented gains in the region during that time, and even supported a pro-Kremlin revolt in Ukraine that still continues to this day. With this, Moscow is slowly regaining influence over Eastern Europe.

Also worthy of note is Putin’s somewhat humorous offer of political asylum to James Comey, the former FBI director who was at the head of the Trump witch hunt before his dismissal from the position. In this moment of levity, Putin actually showed more of his hand then he may have liked.

Keep in mind that he is still giving political asylum to the traitor Edward Snowden, and it may have been information from the NSA whistleblower that has been allowing Russia to stay one step ahead of United States intelligence in the Baltic region and around other parts of Europe.

Small fissures often lead to large holes in the game of political expediency. Serbia is not important on its own. Neither is Ireland or Luxembourg. However, Serbia, Luxembourg, Ireland, France and whatever other countries begin to swing left in Europe will continue to isolate the United States beyond the auspices of proper nationalism.

We need to support President Trump so that the United States can continue to build on capitalist leverage, and maintain an advantageous position against Russian expansion on the European continent.
