Would a conservative talk radio station in Poland be welcomed ?
I understand that Poland has Liberal and Socialist talk radio but no real Conservative talk shows besides the church radio Maryja.
Why is this ?
Would they be considered Hate Speech ?
Would such an unedited program be legal in Poland where conservative people are allowed to call in and voiced their opinions like we do here on the Polish Forums ?

Could people be arrested by the thought police for not being Politically Correct ?
Please help me out here.

I doubt it, talk radio is kind of over. And the issues that motivate American conservatives won't do the same in Poland... different mind set and different priorities.

Rubbish.Talk radio is the only radio that is succeeding in Europe right now.
Music radio is dieing....
Yes, Johnny Reb, there is a place for talk radio in Poland.
But they need to pitch it right.
There is a lot of apathy in Poland and they need to find a way to enthuse people to phone in.

I can't believe that as Rush Limbaugh's audience is growing every year with a present audience of over 26 million.
His conservative audience gets to call in live on his radio show and present their piece of mind exposing the lies of the Liberals.
Seems something like that would be socially enlightening on subjects swept under the rug by the opposition in Poland.
Sorry to walk on you Milo as we both posted at the same time.
You are correct Milo with your input.
This includes all of the E.U., not just Poland.
There is no Conservative talk radio........why ?

Maybe for old people. Young people (I deal with them all the time) don't watch tv or listen to radio, it's all online.

And young people in Poland are famously politically apathetic (holdover from commie times).

Sean Hannity's conservative audience is mostly 25 - 35 here in the U.S.A.
And even so, let the older people set an example to get things going with the younger peoples interest in Poland's future and ideas.

Why do you see politically protesting crowds in Poland loaded with young people then ?

Sean Hannity's conservative audience is mostly 25 - 35

The median age of FOX News viewers was 65 in 2018.

"...3.3 million households taking in Sean Hannity's show on a nightly basis in 2018..."
"Looking at in-depth demographics reports from Fox, you'll note that just 643,000 nightly Hannity viewers belonged to the 25-54 age group..."

The American talk radio and panel discussion TV are insufferable. I stopped watching Hannity for the same reason why Rush is hard to take in large doses: they preach to the choir of same minded people and invite the guests who are the host's political clones. I have more fun talking to myself.

I want blood, debates, argument. I will take insults before what I would be getting from your typical left and right outlets. To his credit, Tucker is not another Hannity clone and often rips into the RINO's. CNN is beneath the insult level, so that's out.

With conservative information the main stream liberal media refuses to talk about which is the point of the thread.
There are no conservative institutes of higher learning on radio in Poland or for that matter in the whole E.U.
Only Liberal and Socialist radio.
Why is that ?
Rich Mazur 4 | 3,362

For the same reason why it would be stupid to give a Frenchman an AR-15; he wouldn't know what to do with it and what it is for. To make cheese or love with?

All those -isms the Euro-holes invented over the years made them all feel like subjects and subjects are not supposed to speak without prior authorization. And, god forbid, about things that really matter, like taxes and immigration.

Advertisers would not go for that - Radio Maryja survives because it is funded by Rydzyk.

Most radio ads are for supermarkets, cellphones and banks, who obviously don't want their ads sandwiched between discussions of abortion and Israel.

As Maf says the medium is dying but the topics that sustain talk radio in the US don't excite Poles -

Flag waving patriots are well catered to by TVP
Abortion and homosexuality obsessives have Radio Maryja and Republika
Welfare claimants in Poland are mostly older,poorer PIS voters and won't moan about it on talk radio.
Guns, positive discrimination, oil drilling etc are not big topics here and anyone who does care can use YouTube.

Seriously, what are Polish socialist and liberal radio talk shows? Perhaps they exist. Perhaps conservative radio talk shows exist, too.
But the reality is that in the era of the internet hardly anyone listens to the radio. If they do, they listen to stations that play music and present short news.

Thank you! Exactly right!

American talk radio is based on a particular bundle of American obsessions which don't cluster together in Poland.

Especially good point that you can't get conservatives riled up about welfare in Poland because they're the biggest recipients.

Is there another kind? "Flag waving patriot" in this sentence looks like a slap. I wonder why.
Is it because the EU is a new Soviet Union where the citizens are expected to be feel patriotic only to the super-state, the EU, but not to the component republics like Poland?

Just curious... If a Polish guy were to say on a Polish radio station that he hates Muslim immigrants, would he be criminally charged under the Polish penal code or the UK? Is there an extradition treaty between the EU republics for such offenses as speaking freely on unapproved subjects?

No what I mean is the kind of patriot who gets upset about Cursed Soldiers, Smolensk etc rather than your typical Kowalski who is happy to stand for the national anthem and put a flag on his car during the World Cup.

In the Us a lot of that discussion developed around wars and unprovoked invasions, which is not such an issue here in Poland.

God knows about your other question but I doubt you are interested in the answer anyway - just an early attempt to steer an interesting thread back to immigration and Muslims.

Indeed, it must be confusing for our American friends to learn that conservatives here are the biggest supporters of welfare measures.

TokFM is very much liberal, I'd say. Polskie Radio is conservative (the ruining of Trójka with political crap is one of the worst things PiS have done). RMF leans towards the left too. Radio Maryja is on the hard right...what else?

Evidently that term is applied liberally by our PF friends here. Who are exactly those conservatives?

Primarily social conservatives... in Poland left and right don't align quite the way they do in the US

US: conservatives on social issues align with extreme free market capitalism economically and social liberals want more government interaction with markets

in Poland social conservatives align with more semi-socialist ideas and social liberals are more free market oriented.

PiS are basically socially conservative socialists while PO are slightly more liberal socially and a good deal more in favor of markets.

Many Americans can't/won't believe that social and economic ideas align differently in different countries.

No. It's about the freedom of speech and this thing we call the 2nd Amendment. Those subjects are merely the acid test of how much of that freedom your rulers allow you to have.

And I am not buying any of that bullsh*it that Poles are not into politics. Only the dead ones. There is not a man over 20 anywhere on the globe that wouldn't talk politics if you remove the fear of persecution or prosecution. Not one.

Who are exactly those conservatives?

Easy answer: everybody in the US. What we, as conservatives, want is to conserve and protect our chosen life styles, our culture, our language, our borders, our financial future for ourselves and our current and future families. We hate the globalists and the depravities they promote in the name of civil rights. Abortion included.

Sorry for as a stupid mistake...I meant the 1st Amendment, of course.

Thats bs. Theres more polish youth in the narodowcy ranks than ever before.

The mere fact that hundreds of thousands of Poles celebrate nov 4 in warsaw alone, about half of them youth, is indication enough. 10 20 years ago the celebrations attracted a fraction of what they do now.

Going on facebook is enough to see more and more Polish youth and leaning more and more to the right. We dont want to see our motherland raped and pillaged by muslims or kids brainwashed into thinking lgbt is normal like the cucked countries of w europe.

which is not such an issue here in Poland.

The issues among the youth are preventing a deluge of turd worlders and opposing the globo homo run by Shlomo agenda as evidenced by the banners on nov 4 and the conversations on facebook. Opposing EU directives and intruding Polands sovereignty are also popular topics.

Nov 11*** not sure why i was thinking of all saints...

Fact is theres already a decent bit of talk radio in poland but online radio is more popular. The only people who would listen to political talk radio are the bored senior pensioners who come out of their bloki to wave eu flags everytime pis wants to clean the courts of commie remnants.

Up to 23 from 19 is not significant in a country of 38 million....

hundreds of thousands of Poles celebrate nov 4 in warsaw alone

a bunch of low rent hillbillies a' hootin' and a' hollerin' is not... "political"

Shows what you don't know about politics.

My point is that if Poland and the rest of the E.U. had Conservative radio programming, that they don't have now, both left and right leaning political views could be heard as an equal democracy.

As it is now the Left has the upper hand to preach their views as being the gospel without the other side having the same exposure to their views.

They can be heard already in Poland - if someone wants to set up a conservative radio station or TV station then they can do so. What is stopping them ?

I was speaking about the 'independence day' celebrations which a very large majority of Poles with IQs in the triple digits don't want to have anything to do with.

As a Polam (accent on the Am) dirk (my idol is a male prostitute) diggler simply doesn't understand Polish happenings except through an American filter that does no good.

In most of Europe American style conservative radio is just a non-starter, real conservative talk radio about local issues wouldn't be anything that appealed to American conservatives....

I wasn't talking about appealing to American conservatives here in America, I was talking of Polish conservatives in Poland and the E.U.
Give them their chance to express EQUALLY their points of views.
As it is now it is very lop sided in favor of Liberalism & Socialism.
It reminds me of the old days when people were scared to death to even speak at all more less freely.
