I left for a better life without hurting anybody.
So you mean you put your own interests before those of your country and your countrymen. Just as a person did by joining the communist party.
Hate to burst your bubble, but most people didn't fight the system.
How would you know? You ran away and thus don’t know what was happening in Poland.
For starters, Swiatło wasn't a Pole, he was a Jew.
And of course Jews can’t be Poles, can they? Personally I would rather suspect that, as a good Communist, Swiatło didn’t practice any religion, but you feel free to stick to your bigotry
You mean those selfish people who fled communism?
No. Those were the people who had torture and/or death waiting for them if they came back to Poland. The people who fled communism and sold out their country in search of a better life for themselves were people like you.
Harry, It has been pointed out many times that you are a blooming idiot. Why do you come back for more?
Many reasons, including to point out that you’re a liar, a hypocrite and a bigot.
Also, people were not fighting to overthrow communism. They were fighting for better conditions, independent trade unions, etc. Communism collapsed.
Again, how would you know? You’d run off in search of soft toilet paper. Has it occurred to you that the main reason so few people involved with the resistance openly mentioned overthrowing Communism was that the reaction of the authorities would have been very similar to those in Budapest in ’56 and Prague in ’68?
I have every right to berate Soviet collaborators.
Yes, you didn’t collaborate: when the going got tough you just surrendered and changed sides. Are you actually Italian?
When it's Jedwabne they are called Jews; when it's a criminal like Światło, he is a Pole,
What happened to the people at Jedwabne happened to them because they were Jews. If they hadn’t been Jews, it wouldn’t have happened to them.
Światło got where he was because he was a Pole. If he hadn’t been a Pole, he wouldn’t have got where he was.
See the difference?
at least that's what you called him.
Liar. Sjam called him a “Polish-Jew”.
Let me give you a hypothetical choice and I count on an honest answer.
You are living in communist Poland. You can't even buy toilet paper.
a) you emigrate when you have a chance
b) you stay, but you don't join the party
c) you join the communist party and have all the toilet paper you want.
Alternatively, d) stay in Poland and fight for better toilet paper. Of course this option didn’t occur to you, probably because you took your arse to a more comfortable life at the first chance you got.
