News / Election marathon 2018-2020 in Poland [1058]

In PRL there were PZPR elites/UB/Milicja who had their own shops easy access to get flat/car. (...) in reality it was like in 'Animal farm'

And those "elites" after '89 tranformed into "businesmen" who sponged on "privatised" property. They've also lobbied for extensive concessions and regulations in economy so they wouldn't have to compete on a free market with normal Poles.

* I have to abuse quotation mark since many words have a different meaning for a free people and different for neo-Marxists.

I'm very skeptical about "strategic" relations between Poland and Germany on a state level. And I don't really like the German mentality of enforcing their views on the others, which also happens now in a softer version of pushing neomarxist agenda on Poland .

But the justice needs to be given to those who deserve it. There were some great Poles of Germanic background. One of them was Emil "Nil" Fieldorf a war hero who fought on Polish side in WWI and WWII. Of course that doesn't change the fact that most of them have tuned against Poland during WWII. So much more kudos to those who didn't

History / Communism fell 20 years ago, Poland led the fight since WW2 [239]

@pawian, No wonder you're so aggressive since you may not intelectually fully comprehend it but you've instinctly sensed the danger of such a statement that I've made.

Removing few crucial bricks, like Bolek, from this wall of lies on which IIIrd Republic was build upon will cause its collapse. That's why so many "moral authority figues" are so invlved into defending the old system of beliefs based on "legends" such as Bolek Walesa.

Unfortuanately for them, the process has already started and there's no stopping it.

@Rich Mazur, altruism is just a higher, and more sublime form, of egoism ;-)

If you take a look at the list of a famous hmm altruists, you're see that for most of them their ekhem altruism has paid off handsomely in a form of a substantial material gain.

The brightest example in Poland is Owsiak and his charity scheme.

History / Communism fell 20 years ago, Poland led the fight since WW2 [239]

Would an agent dismantle communism like Wałęsa did?

You're naive Pawian. And being naive is cute when you're a young girl but not an old man living in a countryside.

Communism was trembling. And it was collapsing because of the 10 million strong Solidarity movement. Communists knew that it's not going to hold so they made, so called a "leap forward". The've placed countless agents in the movement and activated "sleepers" like Walesa who was recruited by SB in early 70's.

Those people we're crucial to add legitimacy to the new political order when commies started planning political transformation in Poland. Basically communist wanted two things: to be safe from the revenge of the people and to keep a dominant political and economical position in new Poland.

So to be clear: I bow to the great Solidarity movement but I dispise commie collabolators such as "Bolek" Walesa who sold out the great idea.

History / Poland in a Slavic Union/Alliance/Federation? [333]

The way that Serbia got treated and that most of the EU and Western world in general supported Kosovo is unfortunate. Poland should have never recognize kosovo as an independent state just like a Hungary didn't do so.

And those who are crying now about Crimea being occupied by Russia (and earlier on support forming an independent Kosovo) are the biggest hypocrites.

That said, 3SI is a chance for Serbia to grow. If not 3 Seas then what? An alliance, or rather a servitude to Russia? There's no future in that.

I'm not suspicious of Facebook at all.

As a coder I'm fully aware that is a tool for extracting information and big data analysis :-)

The choice is all yours: you can sacrifice your privacy and sell (or rather give away for free) your sensitive data in sake of convenience or not.

History / Poland in a Slavic Union/Alliance/Federation? [333]

No offence, but so called "Slavic Alliance" or "Panslavism" is just another name for Russian political domination in this part of Europe. We already have a Three Seas Innitiative formed by V4, some Balkan states and Romania/Bulagaria, which is more than suitable.

And it's growing.

You are afraid of silly LGBT and don`t see a much bigger problem

Refrase: I'm aware of the potential damage to the society that cultural marxism would bring.

when PiS overtakes all important institutions and controls everything in Poland, we will be all lost

So far I saw them clearing the army from "golden fund" generals like Mirosław Różański who enrolled to the army... in the middle of a Martial Law in Poland.

I also support clearing judiciary system from "judges" introduced to courts during communist years.

So yes, it will be lost for those people. There's no doubt about it. My only regret is that they are not as radical as Konfederacja would be in cleaning up that mess.

No matter how you frame it PiS won by a whooping 7%.

And even a draw would be a victory for PiS in such a specific elections as the EU parlamentary elections.

PO/KE is already collapsing after the elections.
And it doesn't cease to amaze me that those who support them are thinking of themselves as some form of an elite :-)

I myself support Konfederacja since PiS is not radical enough for my liking when it comes to immigration policy (from outside of the EU) and to much on a socialist side when it comes to economics.

Yet, if I had to choose between PiS and so called, "liberal" opposition with no plans on how to rule a country - which consists of functional idiots and chancers ruled by cynics - PiS would have my vote.

I think the only real "plan" of "liberal" opposition is adopting neomarxist inventions such as LGBT and multikulti which has already failed in the West. A truly disgusting group of political chancers.

Fortunately, they are also too dull to learn on their mistakes so they will fail again.

It doesn't take into account smaller sub regions. Mostly a bigger cities voted for KE (is it still a correct name since PSL left?) while smaller town and countryside in Western Poland voted for PiS.

Life / What income/assets and worth, will give you a "rich" status in Poland? [21]

Being truly rich and having a "rich status" are two different things imho.
I know just too many 'rich' people driving expensive cars bought on credit and 'owning' flats and houses that they will have to repay for the next 30 years...so well-dressed pauper? :-)

But yes , I guess owning a large house, 1 mln. PLN in savings and not having debts whatsoever makes you considerably rich.

@mafketis, you are partially right.

Socialism is build on two pillars: economic (enforced redistribution of fruits of labor) and even more dangerous ideological idoctrination (attack on family and traditional European values, multikulti, LGBT and all forms of mental deviations)

With the right government you can halt socialist redistribution at will (it was done before by Thatcher and Reagan) but the damage done to society by ideological indoctrination is almost irreversible and it will take generations to bring it back to normal.

@mafketis, that's why PiS needs a guardian angel in Konfederacja.

There are 6 months left to parliamentary elections. That's a plenty of time to gain more support, especially since Konfederacja was created just 5 months ago and fully formed just 3 months ago.

I believe that they can became a Polish equivalent to Jobbik which in Hungary keeps Fidesz firmly on the right side.

One of you quoted a turnout of about 43%.

It was even higher: 45,68% which has favored the largest political factions over smaller parties. I'm referring here mostly to Konfederacja and Kukiz but also to leftist Wiosna.

The numbers might not show it, but the eurocucks got completely demolished.

That's true. PiS has its faults and shortcomings, yet it is still much better than - lowest of the low - PO and KE. But I think PiS needs a guardian angel =Konfederacja= to keep them firmly on the right side of a political scene and not let them forget their right-wing voters and become center-right.

Anyway, let's not forget that a really important elections will take place in autumn.

I only wrote you expected more. Frankly, didn`t you?

I expected Konfederacja to get into the EU parliament (when most "opinion" polls gave them no more than 1-3% up until the last week*) and they delivered.

Now I expect them to grow and to absorb most of those 4% that Kukiz had.

The most interesting question now is what PiS does with Konfederacja.

Like in a Hungarian scenario "Fidesz/Jobbik", PiS will have to accept that there's a party on the right side

Konfederacja will help PiS to stay firmly on the right side and to listen to the conservative electorate instead of looking for a mythical "centre voters". They would also correct their foreign policy. Any move towards centre by PiS would give Konfederacja new fuel to grow.

A scenario in which PiS would be unable to rule without coalition with Konfederacja after autumn elections would be an ideal scenatio for Poland.

@delphiandomine, as much I like to hear from your mouth insults thrown at those poor excuses for politicians from KE/PO like Kopacz and company, those were exactly the most recognized faces in the coalition.

And the elections to the EU Circus in Poland, which are treaded much less seriously than Parliamentary elections, are in fact a popularity contest not a competence contest.

That said, despite all those efforts and forming a "large coalition", losing the EU elections was in fact a TKO and a red card before the most important Autumn Elections.

History / Why do Polish people hate to be called Eastern European? [103]

@pawian, you wrote so much nonsense that I don't even know where to start...

As much as I love Russians

So you love Russians. How many Russians do you know in person?

I met quite a few of them in Poland and even more of them in London (they moved to the UK disguised as Latvians, Lithuanians...) and I wouldn't say that I love them but I know how to deal with them in person.

Which brings me to the next point: the only way of effectively dealing with Russians is from the position of power. Any other approach is seen as a sign of weakness by a regular Russian. So yes, a mutual respect is possible only when both sides take hard line. That's how they are wired and that's how they've been conditioned for centuries.

When it comes to politics, obviously that kind of relations with Russia is something that only a strong conservative government is capable of. Even the US, the superpower, got slapped by Russia when they had a weak, incompetent, liberal president Obama.

And now, connecting Polish nationalist with some kind of pro-russian stance is an aberration shared by both tribes: PiS and PO followers. Polish nationalist have pro-Polish stance and in Polish interest is to cooperate with those who will bring - economical, political or any other - profits to Poland. Something which Viktor Orban does succesfully for Hungary.

@delphiandomine, I'm afraid you don't have an idea about Polish politics.

KE/PO has thrown everything they've had. And they also had overwhelming support of the mass media (excluding public broadcaster), newspapaers and celebrities, not to mention EU politicians (including "the president of Europe").

Yet, it wasn't enough since they lack true elites and are unable to produce any coherent political idea and all they are mentally capable of is:

a) non-constructive criticism not only of PiS or other political parties but also the very foundations of a true European civilisation
b) copycatting dumb ideas invented by even dumber EU left wing groups and politicians and trying to implement them in Poland

They got about 6%. Only. You counted for more. :):)

You're trying to put your own words in my mouth. Point me to the post where I said that. I'm pretty sure those were your words
