How many Polish people do you want to kill to make a better Poland?
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood.
This is a pretty damning report about the new government I must admit:-
1" It has violated the constitution to replace the previous government's appointees on the constitutional court".
2 "The populist Law and Justice party "
3"put partisans in charge of the intelligence agencies"
4 and 5 "purged officials and backtracked on Poland's commitments to the European Union."
6"The new culture minister threatens to purge the public broadcasters."
Some BS and meaningless blah blah:
a-"Poland's economy has been the flagship of the EU's eastward expansion, proof that democracy and the rule of law can spread. Its stability, prosperity and pro-European orientation have won it respect and diplomatic clout"
b-"The conspiracy theories that PiS favours play on Polish feelings of victimhood which are deeply held-and deeply self-indulgent."
Really? Would that excuse me if I put a boot up your hmm ...behind?
"PiS's animating drive is hostility to Poland's liberal, secular, urban elite."
Rather to the motley of dilettantes, hypocritical, corrupted, criminal, post-communist, parasitical mob sucking out all the wealth from Poland and sidling with foreign companies doing the same. While leaving general population living in squalor.
"Catholic nationalists, Eurosceptics, anti-corruption zealots, conspiracy theorists, protectionists and agrarians."
Generally people who think that being a German colony in Europe and being ruled by a clique of criminals and hereditary post-communist oligarchy/establishment is not a best way for Poland to progress and develop.
" Antoni Macierewicz, one of the worst plane-crash conspiracy theorists, is now defence minister"
How he can be a conspiracy theorist when a cause of the crash haven't been found out. His theory is as good as any.
"PiS opposes gay rights"
Gay privileges -and kudos to them to stop that madness.
"President Andrzej Duda has vetoed a sex-change law for fear that pregnant women might become men before giving birth."
That is a clearly a mockery - I expect that people who doesn't know first thing about Poland will be fooled.
"Mr Kaczynski warns that Muslim migrants "carry diseases"
Which is a fact that has been confirmed and only to be expected but I guess it wasn't very diplomatic on his part to say it, well he is old and clearly not a diplomat.
"There are murmurs of putting Mr Tusk, now president of the European Council, on trial."
Dealing in gossip now? A magazine for professionals, put some naked women on your pages.
"This lurch towards populism will hurt Poland"
Oh? Is a democratic election populism? Only a right option in power is truly democratic? I hate to burst your bubble you are professing totalitarianism.
"The European Commission's plan for redistributing migrants across the union faces dissent from Hungary and two other members of the Visegrad group, Slovakia and the Czech Republic" - yeah and Britain, Denmark flatly refused to take them, is that hush hush?
Anyway guys you are behind the times even Swedes say it is enough.
"The plane crash in Smolensk was an accident."
Loo and behold we have a prophet in our mist!
"Good relations with Germany benefit Poland, especially in opposing Russian aggression in Ukraine"
Err what? Come again....
"The new government has only just started its vandalism."
That sir or madam is a slander are you ready to face charges in the court of law?
"In normal times Europe could afford to wait (...) But these are not normal times(...)Countering them will be much easier with Polish partners who are part of the solution, not part of the problem(...)Its citizens should tell PiS to stop now."
Hell, that is serious that is incitement against a legal government, foreign legal government it could create diplomatic crisis.
Who wrote it?
MOST newspapers and magazines use bylines to identify the journalists who write their articles.
By the way articles warning against PiS in the New Yolk Times sorry York Times written by Rick Lyman in cooperation with Joanna Berendt from GW.
