@MBraedley I am from Slovakia and I certainly agree with the statement that the things are pretty messed up in our politics.
I'd say that Fico and Smer (his party) moved towards the narratives typical for right-wing extremists simply because they saw the potential to gain votes in this way.
After the split into two parties, Smer was down in the opiniont polls.
But they managed to win the 2023 election - while Republika stayed out of parliament. (Smer is now using many talking poinst which were typical for right-wing parties such as Republika and ĽSNS in the past.)
@Fredy31 TBH, I think that we cannot have clear picture about the attacker so far. But the journalists certainly tried to talk at least to some people who knew him and looked at his output on social media.
It is true that he was associated with Slovenskí Branci - but that was some time ago and his views certainly shifted since then. (At least based on what can be said from the information that we can get.)
