But he doesn't say anything worse about Poland than you hear living in Poland ten times a day.
I think you are hanging with the wrong crowd. If you mean your crowd, rootless, soviet types who are ashamed of being Poles( they are not they are soviets but they don't know that). like this actor....what is his name? son of an actor.. Shtur and his pathetic quips - then you're right. Hell, they have their own newspaper their TV channel.
It is not about sensitive. It simply a fact that Dough too easily ***** and moan about stuff he has a very little clue about. I mean one can get frustrated with issues in Poland but it doesn't excuse most of the ignorant and offensive crap he has been spewing on this forum about polish people.
His acholic addiction is a sort of explanation for his behavior and words but by all means it is not an excuse.
I understand, Poland's reality can be harsh on a spoiled western European but he CHOOSE it, he voluntarily CHOOSE Poland as a place to live. He has been doing it for 30 years, so I think some smudge of loyalty or understanding or a sentiment for the place would be in order. Is that too much to ask?
If he absolutely hate the place he should be gone long ago and if he doesn't hate it or it is a convenient for him to be there he should have chosen his words wisely. Because what he says and the way he says it says more about him than about things he talks about.
Criticize what? The Independence March? PiS for being nationalistic? Mainers for getting their jobs secure by the union? Really? Criticize Poland for not bowing with the ridiculous German scheme of the forcible relocation of illegal immigrants from outside Europe? Calling poles scum because of it?
That is not a reasonable balanced behavior and his not some 20' old punk high on a testosterone. He is a 60 years old dude who should have some modicum of reason, decorum and sense. No wonder senior citizens are not respected at all nowadays with such a whacko jobs on the loose.
to dislike PiS for, the use of 'post-communist' as a slur
I don't think you can ascribe it to PiS. It has been around for a while as far as I know. I'm using it only for the benefit of the non-Poles on this forum in this way they would know what I'm getting at. You should know very well that Poland has been ruled to a large degree by the mixture of the commie military intelligence and all kind of opportunist, left overs from the commie times and former commie snitches until very recently. Don't you think that matters?
See, I criticize Poland too. I contrary to Dough know what I'm talking about. He just vent his frustration cause he didn't assimilate at all and he think he is better than Poles and that good old Blithely is some kind of paradise. A bloody English fool! lol!
I (and Doug) can be bothered to live in Poland instead of skulking around and fuming at the world from wherever you are in Western Europe.
First of all, I'm not fuming. I have a fiery temperament and hypocrisy, double standards, injustices, stupidity incurs my wrath. Otherwise I'm lovely and I'm great around children and animals.
Second of all, what does it matter where I'm? I'm not trash talking USA even thought I could to that easily, about judicial and federal institutions and double standards where millions of Mex criminal or illiterate, monolingual serfs are safe to stay and protected, where Somalian wild people with an average IQ of 90 are imported by the gov,while white Europeans well integrated, paying taxes are being targeted by the lazy PC scummy officials, and treated like **** and felons and kicked out. where is the justice in that?
Could talk about issues of the people I'm right now, about a nasty people (visible minority) inefficient institutions, crazy ass laws that sucks D or cadge free speech or freedom of information that would be unthinkable not even in the US but also in Poland. About Governments right or left that fully Embraced progressive ideology and in fact brainwashed people into it.
Hey, I'm not doing that because I understand the place their people, where they are coming from and I'm well integrated. It is not easy process as you should know.
In that sense Dough is far from it. He is just trash talk people cause he is a dick! That what the English are doing the best blame the others and scapegoat people. lol!
Also I have the right to express my opinion regardless.
