Romanian MEP, Maria Grapini, has posted a message on her Facebook page, offensive against the Romanian Diaspora intending to attend the protest rally on August 10. “Without a certificate for stupidity, you can’t attend the rally,” the message reads.
Grapini is known for several grammar mistakes in the past, adevarul.ro informs.
“I inform the Diaspora that the stupidity tax is to be paid at the USR offices. Without a certificate for stupidity, you can’t attend the rally,” reads the message posted by the MEP.
Shortly, the initial post was deleted and replaced by another one: “For those who believe they offend me, relax, I am immune,”
People on Facebook have consequently criticized Grapini for the offending message. So, Grapini reacted by writing that the cur tax is to be paid at the same offices.
Lately, the Bucharest City Hall said the rally of the Diaspora on August 10 is approved, but the Federation of Romanians Abroad announces it will not organize the meeting anymore. The Bucharest City Hall accused the organizers they try to induce the idea that it has got a negative response from authorities although the rally has already the go-ahead.
Initially, the Bucharest City Hall rejected the request filed by the Federation of the Romanians Abroad to stage a meeting in the Capital on August 10. The rally, entitled “All Romanians are coming to Bucharest on August 10!#diasporaacasa”, became viral since it has been announced on Facebook more than a month ago. The Capital City Hall argued that the meeting would violate an article of Law 60/1991, republished, on the organization and development of public gatherings.
