So you advocate the antithesis: flawed nationalism, flawed Catholicism, communism is good, refugees are good (the more the merrier!), the West is wholesome,
I'm too smart to defend claims you
put in my mouth. With most things there's a middle ground. For example, just because I dislike PiS doesn't mean I voted for PO. Jerzy Urban greatly dislikes Catholic Church, but even he said Catholics have higher morals than Muslims. Urban says he doesn't draw caricatures of Mahomet because he's a coward and doesn't want to have his head cut off.
Another example of PiS Correctness
is IPN. The Institute of National Memory may as well be called Institute of Selective Memory. They remember Wołyń Massacre, they don't want to remember everything that led to that. Ask them about Wierzchowiny, a 200 people village exterminated by Polish army and you get no response. Ask them about "Akcja Wisła". Ask them why Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth broke. Ask them why Chmielnicki started the uprising. Ask them about Józef Piłsudski and Semen Petliura. Ask them why were Ukrainian-speaking schools closed, and whether it could have any impact on OUN (Organizacja Ukraińskich Nacjonalistów) forming a few years before Wołyń Massacre. Ask them which famous Polish patriots and politicians were initially plain terrorists, which president made his own bombs. Ask them why Czechs, Lithuanians, and even Swedes don't like Poles.
These things are not taught in schools, they're described in one sentence at best. Then Poles go into the world boasting how just and noble their nation is. They don't know history, but they attempt to preach it. They don't want to listen, and can't comprehend why others dislike them. Kali's mentality is running rampant ("I steal cow - good! Someone steal my cow - bad!").

Poland has XIX century understanding of patriotism.
Jarosław Kaczyński is doing Poland a disservice. He's merely replacing one kind of P
orrectness with P
