Let's have the 'Whinging Pole' instead of the 'Whinging Pom' for a change, or what? <g>

"...protecting the good name of Poland and Poles. Following the proposal of Mr E.Bajkowski from Canberra, it was decided to create a team with representatives all over the country, who will respond to any anti-Polish comments or acts."

funny you have mentioned it:

Here is an article from Rzepospolita (balanced in my related to that topic - in Polish)

In the western elite circles meet anti-Polonism ideological . We find it in the German media and the American elite universities , in numerous publications historians and political scientists as well as on the websites - social philosopher writes

Is there really anti-Polonism ? Nobody denies that there are prejudices against Poles that in some countries, are widespread negative stereotypes about us . In the end, everyone has heard about the " polish jokes " in the United States or unpleasant incidents in the UK or Germany.

But talking about antypolonizmie many of us it seems like overkill . Fact suggests that we are not dealing with the deplorable accidental occurrences , but with a constant attitude or even ideology. You can at the same time observe a pattern - the one is more willing to take on the prejudices of Poles towards the other , the more fervently condemns them , the more downplays prejudices against Poles and other acts of anti-Polish discrimination.

Poles are Semites now?

The other thread where I said Black people and jews will steal cars was parody....must have slipped over your head. In the post above I was referring to Poles as professional victims.

Neither of those were antisemitic. You owe me an apology.

Funny that you mention it. First thing that crossed my mind when I read the announcement on the Polish embassy's web site was 'Is this going to be the Polish version of the World Jewish Congress?' Kind of irritating, IMHO.

No, it turns out Poles are learning from Semites, an approach you criticize.

'Is this going to be the Polish version of the World Jewish Congress?' Kind of irritating, IMHO.

I agree.
Jews, not Poles, are the masters of whining. It seems all polonophobes on this forum tend to forget it. Jewish whining paid itself off handsomely. Still does.

You call me an anti semite and you write this?

Wow...I think you have it backwards...Poles whine far more...the difference is the Jewish folks got on with business and living....Poles just sit and pout.

This is a strange question...the assumption that I am either one is odd. Or is it some claim that since I am neither I cant truly know your suffering? Blah blah.

...are the masters of whining

I was actually talking about the fact that the state of Israel and Jewish organizations were very successful after WW2 to build a powerful lobbyist network that took (takes) care of their political agenda. The posting on the web site looks to me as if Poland and Polish organizations are trying to copy the Israeli/Jewish approach. Poland must at least support the ideas of the Polish Community Council of Australia and New Zealand. Otherwise the article wouldn't have been published on an official web site like the one of the Polish embassy in Australia.

Wow, nothing like freedom of speech

But don't say anything negative about Poland as long as you are in Downunder. They might come and get you... ;-)
