However, they built their careers on the argument that Wałęsa and the liberal intellectuals at the top of Solidarity betrayed Poland's transition to democracy by allowing communists to keep their hands on the levers of power in exchange for the status of high office
Hmm ...isn't that an obvious fact rather than an argument as they put it?
All seems to be forgetting that Walesa in second go at the office as an acting president got 1% of votes - an unprecedented result for the last two decades.
Fuelled by a cocktail of grief and revenge, the controversy surrounding his brother's death gave new impetus to Jarosław's mission to "remodel" Polish democracy
That is actually a lie, they had the same goal all along or at least they claimed they had. 2010 hasn't changed that much in the PiS political line.
gangsters", "cronies", and "reds"
That's what they are! He doesn't brand them, he repeats after others. It is not that is PiS rhetoric, all patriots in Poland agree in that even if they disagree on everything else.
he claimed that migrants from the Middle East were bringing cholera and dysentery to Europe, risking the spread of "various parasites and protozoa
People without any papers form all corners of the world, leaving in unhygienic circumstances for months if not years, camped together and tramping through the mud, woods and fields across many countries are just happy and healthy as Larry. All they spread is love, rainbows and unicorns.
he implied that people demonstrating against the Law and Justice government were "the worst sort of Poles"
That is another lie. In 45 minutes interview asked what he thinks about Polish politicians denouncing and slandering newly elected Polish government (at the time of the interview they were in power like a month) to all he cares to listen or they political friends in the various countries of the world.
It wasn't never about those who opposed him nor about demonstrators it was aimed at those politicians who were doing that.
Anyway in my opinion those demonstrating are scum and that is evident. Peru a long time lobbyist for banksters in Poland, Lis a long time propagandist for the post-communist scum that were in charge for the last two decades in one form or other, others prominent activist and politicians of the system.
the convulsions that threaten further to destabilise Europe in its hour of crisis.
Oh really? Well fekk you very much! Is not for a self proclaimed Emperor of Europe Merkel there wouldn't be any hour of need. On the other hand due to the EU polices Europe is constantly in its hour of crisis if not one thing than another.
About all those pages long rambling one only can be said. It is a fact that after 1989 people who make a deal where supping each other and old commies plus few so called Solidarity leaders (in fact they were people chosen by the comes to play the part of the opposition) have been given a place on the bench.
Most people have been fooled or have been not in position to organize or do something about after 40 years of the soviets oppression. A level playfield wasn't something that existed at all.
To make a long story short those people who have been beneficiary of the 89' transition of power wouldn't have lost the last election if not for the fact that their are totally unable to government a country or anything at all.
They are an end result of the system that at its core is parasitic, they wouldn't be able to exists without taxes and a state support. To improve economical, political or any other issue for Poland and Poles they have proven to be unable.
Whatever or not PiS will do a better job - I do not know, I have my doubts.
There is few promising movements in Poland with a popular support from the young people for the most part!
In the messianist mindset,
What he/she is about? That is some kind of nonsense? Religion is often only rhetoric's in some circles in Poland, even those who are actually believers and see religion as an important part of the Polish education and culture do not embrace that 200 years romantic concept of a long dead poet. Creepers what a stupid thing to write. Next we can hear about Baryonic mindset in regard to the British contemporary politicians.
In fact Smolensk was handled so badly by Tusk's government that he should be held personally responsible for that utter failure and I think some jail time for him is due.
It is an assertion that depends on the notion of Poland eternally under siege
Aha! Where did you get it from, should tray your hand as a political fiction writer.
The thing is people are hoping that PiS will be solving problems, that would be in contrast to PO who was creating problems and fighting with anti-Semites, homophobes and rainbow haters, telling people it is OK to die in the ditch from starvation as long as a progressive world is loving Poland for their progressive thieving inept leaders i.e. themselves.
Angela Merkel may have been brought to power by the Stasi
Rather pointing out her background that is not exactly devoid of shadows.
When an MP from a party supportive of Law and Justice declared in parliament in November that "The good of the nation is above the law
Hmm rather not part of the pack like the rest of them - supportive is that even means anything in politics? Surely if you know that you know also context? If you know that context you cannot but agree with that a statemant made by a hero of Solidarity movement! Morawiecki is a real hero and a fake one like Walensa who according to himself is a progeny of the imperator Valens lol!
attempts to dismantle the independent institutions of the post-1989 republic,
Aha for example a symbol of the independent republic - Constructional Tribunal - created by the soviet general Jaruzelski to justify all unlawful acts of his military coup and who is responsible for many a murders of people who resists his commie rule and his Soviet masters including 16 years old poet.
In all a good inside into not so nice midst of somebody who evident has no clue or aim to misinform!
