Life / Polish people and racism. [943]

Poland didn't like the PRL that PiS wants to create and they don't respond well to propaganda either.

Maybe they didn't like but habit is hard to kill. PIS just want to recreate familiar patterns of control. Regress back to the racist good old days. By doing things like Prime Minister Beata Szydł abolishing Poland's Council for the Prevention of Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.

PiS won't stay popular

Putin and Orban etc are very popular. With the proper propaganda propelled ruthlessly, anything is possible. Blame the foreign media etc(straight out of Animal Farm) Make fake documentaries that heighten the hatred towards an old enemy. Feed your supporters.

Anyone see the hypocrisy?

Prime Minister Beata Szydł abolished Poland's Council for the Prevention of Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, it emerged on Tuesday night.
The council was abolished by a Law and Justice government decree on 27 April.
The body had been established in 2011 under the tenure of Prime Minister Donald Tusk (current president of the European Council), of the centrist Civic Platform party.

Among other factors, the council was tasked with ensuring coordination between government institutions and local government bodies, as well with other groups involved in preventing racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

Poland has called for the British government to start an educational campaign in the UK to tell the public that Brexit does not mean foreigners will be thrown out and that they still have the right to reside in Britain.

The call, made by Witold Waszczykowski, the Polish foreign minister, follows the murder of a Polish man in Essex and fears of a rise in anti-immigrant violence and intolerance in the UK triggered by the Leave vote in the EU referendum.

Hundreds of thousands of Poles now live and work in the UK and their security and legal status is a prime concern of the Polish government.

The British government has not given a cast-iron assurance that Poles and other EU citizens will be allowed to remain in the UK after Brexit, but Theresa May came very close to that position last July when she said Poles would "continue to be welcome" while on a visit to Warsaw.

Theresa May: Polish are welcome in the UK Play! 00:52

Mr Waszczykowski said the British public needed to understand that Poles and other EU citizens who work and live legally in the UK have the right to stay, and that people will not be expelled.

"We can't guard every foreigner," said the minister. "But we would like to see a great educational campaign to show that Brexit does not mean people will be thrown out or made to leave.

News / "A merciful heart can share its bread with the hungry and welcome refugees and migrants" Pope Francis [89]

When he started the trip on Wednesday, Francis said the killing of an elderly priest in France by suspected Islamist militants and a string of other attacks were proof the "world is at war" but that it was not caused by religion.

Pope Francis' prayer, which honored two Polish priests killed by Maoist guerillas in Peru in 1991, concluded by asking for the "gift of peace and of the elimination from our midst of the plague of terrorism."

The pope started his visit to Poland Wednesday by commenting to reporters with him on the plane from Rome that the recent spate of terrorists acts in Europe, including the killing Tuesday of a priest in northern France, was part of a war comparable to the world wars of the previous century.

Yet the pope's prayer also asked God for the "strength and courage to continue to be brothers and sisters for others, above all for immigrants."

The Pope can't be wrong!!

News / "A merciful heart can share its bread with the hungry and welcome refugees and migrants" Pope Francis [89]

Papal infallibility is a dogma of the Catholic Church that states that, in virtue of the promise of Jesus to Peter, the Pope is preserved from the possibility of error "when, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church.

News / Poland's post-election political scene [4080]

the same should be said about the nature of things as they had been carried out before that change, that is at the time when the present opposition was in government.

That's why the international community will need to assist. Make sure both sides compromise and checks and balances are re-introduced.

News / Demonstrations in Poland in defence of democracy. [2554]

I'm sure that the EU and V Commission can be and should be ignored.

Perhaps! but only by the guilty party. Ignoring international law will have consequences. PIS are hugely outnumbered by defenders of rational democracy.

Maybe demonstrations don't work anymore. Remember the mass demos against the Bush invasion of Iraq. PIS will manipulate the numbers and ignore public opinion both internally and externally. They've taken the key from the front door.

News / Mass protests needed in Poland in front of American embassy [60]

Yes, this is the worry, that the dark forces will triumph, and when they get power they will strip democracy of all its checks and balances. I'm pretty sure this is the objective the sheep in the above photos have for their shepherds.

Polonia / Should Poles help Germans organize protests demanding free media ? [136]

But I do think it's pretty f*ckin stupid that every refugee gets tarred with the same brush coz of the actions of some boozed-up idiots.

Racists want and need reasons to justify their racism. No need to look into it too deeply.
