Opole townsfolk outraged by mayor's destruction of their song festival

It was after that announbcement that all those she invited would perform that Wiśniewski unilaterally broke the contract.

Are you trying to claim that Rodowicz decided Dr Misio couldn't perform due to one of their music videos being untransmittable? Or was it after her announcement that they were banned?

Dr Misio

I haven't heard her specifically mention any Dr Misio, but all Poland heard her say: "Those I have invited will perform at the Opole Song Festival". full stop. Unransmittable may refer to foul language not permitted on the airwaves. Poland has not yet "progressed" to the "anything goes" level your foul-mouthed WTF circles advocate.

Dr Misio

Checked him out on YouTube and can see why he should be banned from the public airwaves. The garbage this blasphemous c*nt spews in rap-crap format would be grossly offensive to most Polish families in living rooms across the country. TVN and Polsat wouldn't broadcast such stuff either. Stricly tasteless and provocative stuff for Christphobic POtheads in grimy, smoky clubs. I'm sure it would suit you to a T.

Dr Misio

The King of Polish Cabaret is a cultural icon known to Poles of all generations, not some obscure, peripheral Dr Misio of whom most Poles have never heard. But fyi Pietrzak was blackballed during the PO reigme's 8 years of misrule and even today his act can get turned down for a hall rental if the local council is dominated by PO creeps. The director of one community centre that allowed his cabaret to perform lost his job. But Pietrzak uses no foul nor blasphemous language, so what is his offence? The mortal sin of satirising the Tusk regime during those 8 years and now the pathetic losers' camp. And somehow no-one has ever heard a peep out of PiSlamic over that injustice. Everyone well remembers what a great champion of cultural freedom PiSlamic was in defending the play "Klątwa" which included scenes of defecating on the Cross of Christ and hanging St John Paul II, but only after he got a proper bl*wjob.

non-state controlled news,

The majority of Poland's media still reflect the Michnik-Timmermans-style liberal-left convention but at least now there's a choice. During PO scamster rule there were few exceptions to the liberal-left news monopoly.

you would consider to be reputable

Dunno about Gumi and British papers but if there is good conservative one amongst them, it would surely be the most reliable. It's the wild-eyed leftist fanatics, libertines and cultural marxists that try to agenda-ise everything. In Poland the most balanced is Rzeczpospolita which is neither for nor against PO and PiS but tries to tell it like it is. Wyborcza and Gazeta Polska are too biased and partisan.

Rzeczpospolita is not really balanced, and it's getting worse by the day - including posting blatant lies about the PiS government - you need to watch Salonik Polityczny Rafała Ziemkiewicza more (if you already do) - it's a weekly show broadcast on TV Republika but people make it available in Youtube - the journalists who take part in the discussion don't support neither PiS nor PO unconditionally - take a look at archive editions of the show you will find out -

good conservative one

I suppose, off the top of my head, that would be The Daily Telegraph though there is probably too much of a conservative bias with a capital C as they are very much supporters of the Conservative party. But it's good in the sense that it's a broadsheet iwth decent journalism, and is a proper newspaper containing news not interspersed with rubbish about which celebrity flashed her knickers getting in or out of a taxi.

not really balanced

Let me put it this way -- it used to be. I don't read it regulalry except on the net occasionally. I read TV Republika's online version but cannot get the TV show on my computer. But I mostly agree with Ziemkiewicz who regularly exposes the lies and manipulations of the pathetically frustrated Wybiórcza and the whole losers' club.

Opole Mayor buckles under and signs deal to hold song festival in September



Opole Mayor buckles under to town council and popular pressure and signs deal with TVP to hold the Opole Song Festival in September. Apparently the amount of negative feedback from Opole townsfolk (and voters) showed him what side his bread was buttered on. Another example of the harm mean-spirited, hysterical government-bashers can cause to tiem-honoured cultural events, patrtiotic occasions, religious worship, commemorative ceremonies and anything else they think can derail the governnment and get them back to the feed trough. But will the Michniks, TVNs and celebrities apologise for creating a yet another futile rumpus and egging the trouble-makers on? Not on your life. Instead they are already on the lookout for the next pretext with which they can bash the good-change government.

That's an interesting interpretation, given the reality was that TVP agreed to adhere to the spirit of the Opole Song Festival, which includes not prohibiting artists for political reasons.

Yours is indeed pro-KOD all the way. Wiśniewski committed breach of contract but was forced back to the bargaining table by irate voters and disgruntled councillors.

Forced? He got TVP to agree to the integrity of the Song Festival, which is all that Opole wanted from the beginning. Now that it's been agreed that TVP will not impose censorship or blacklists, Opole can go ahead with the festival, which is what the original problem was about.

By the way, PiS only have three councillors in Opole. I very much doubt those three were able to place much pressure on him.

He has his party line and his required talking points, and he's sticking with them!

Alone no, but they helped mobilise local public opinion which were irate over the demise of the festival -- a source of both income and prestige.

has his party line

A PiSlameque insinuation. Your flippant remark should read: He's got a Polish heart and soul and intuitively knows what will advance or harm the Polish cause. That is all the easier at present after Poland's national itnerests had been dragged through the mud over 8 years of PO scmaster misrule.

So you should have a link or two (from Opole) about this....

He's got a Polish heart and soul

Get back to me when he's got a Polish passport and/or tax bill.

He got TVP to agree

Typical PiSlamiquese red herring, assuming that people have forgotten the details. Rodowicz annoucned on TVP in May that the Opole festival would go ahead and that all those she invited to celebrate her golden anniversary on stage could perform. But Kayah had already puleld out and to save face did not agree to perform and took others with her. The truth is that we are back at square one with a month-long PiS-bashing interlude in between. Backers of hte Losers' Club love to beat a dead horse!

Surely you mean "Party line"? Talking of the Party, now that First Secretary of the Party Chairman Kaczynski doesn't get to personally select all the artists at the Opole Festival, will any of the Party bigwigs or other members of the elitny of the PiSlamic State be attending the festival? It's going to be interesting really: if they don't go, it will be obvious to all that they're sore over losing this fight; but if they do go, they're pretty much certain to be at best heckled and also to have messages aimed at them by the freedom-supporting artists.

all those she invited to celebrate her golden anniversary on stage could perform.

Good to see 'Polish' Po faithfully trotting out what he's heard on Radio Maybach. How unfortunate for him that in this age of free media and freedom of information we all can know that the reality is that some artists were forbidden from taking part as punishment for 'crimes' such as having "untransmittable" music videos.

Get back to me when he's got a Polish passport and/or tax bill.

One of those is certainly never happening, the other he has no control over.
