Isn't this what Polonius was on about a couple of weeks ago, the BBC is showing that German series and the usual right wing Polonia suspects immediately decided to protest/draw attention to themselves?

I find it hilarious that Radio Maryja supporters tend to scream about "freedom of speech" and so on, yet they're normally first to also scream when someone says something they don't agree with.

I'm surprised they don't picket the Polish Embassy then, since Polish state TV showed the same series.

Strange, isn't it?

It only goes to show how utterly brainwashed and manipulated some people are.

Apologies for answering my own question, but it seems that these valuable members of society were actually protesting against what they consider to be the anti-Polish tendencies of the BBC. No I'm not making that up.

On Tuesday at 6 Avenue in Manhattan, a group of Poles and Polish flags banners protesting against the BBC and its anti-Polish tendencies.
One of the banners held by members of the demonstration, among whom were members of the New York branch of Solidarity in 2010 and individuals, was an appeal to the BBC instructing the station that the German Nazi death camps in occupied Poland is not "Polish death camps" or "Nazi death camps Poland ".
"The BBC has a tendency to distort the notorious phrase" - said Stefan Komar, an activist who took part in the demonstration in New York.
Komar gives the entire list of examples anti-Polish speech at the BBC. "The employee Giles Coren slandered Poles in an article when he wrote that Poles revel in destroying the synagogue, and in one program telling about the Poles used profanity" - says Komar.

Of course, Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter was another of things the brave defenders of Poland took time out of their hectic schedules to protest about.

I feel the need to object : there is no way that a handful of people can be called a protest.

Could you, really?

Bear in mind that it would require you to prove that it was maliciously anti-Polish rather than being merely a critical observation about Poland.

Very true. They are getting worked up over nothing - literally.

Hopefully they will see the news from this week of Russia stating the obvious about Britain: "a small island no one listens to" telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/10290964/A-small-island-no-one-listens-to-the-best-of-Britains-insults.html

This is the one fact that Poles, Russians and the entire international community can agree on!

oh great another really helpful and totally unpatronising post from delphiandomine, almost as helpful as your offering on the UPA thread

i would say mr seldon attributing more holocaust guilt to the Poles than the Germans counts as malicious or retarded, google it yourself if you're actually interested rather than just looking for a confrontation.

you know theres some really great people on this forum that are really helpful (thanks Harry for replying to my query in your last post btw)

which is why i keep coming back, thats after i've been away long enough to forget the anti-semitism and general arse-iness that puts me off the place

thanks for saving me time and putting me off PF quickly this time!

Hi Tim,

Could you perhaps link to a list of the BBC's anti-Polish moments? I know about the BBC providing Polish language programming for six plus decades, but the anti-Polish programming is news to me.

Thanks in advance.

Tim, perhaps you've missed something, but the whole point of the BBC is that it is a public broadcaster. The role of a public broadcaster is to allow all views to be aired regardless of orientation. You need to understand that the views of an individual do not represent the BBC, but rather represent the strength of the BBC. There have been plenty of very positive things on the BBC about Poland and Polish people, too.

I know about the BBC providing Polish language programming for six plus decades, but the anti-Polish programming is news to me.

Certainly the World Service played a role during the dark days.

Some Jews came across like that but in case of Seldon it could be about politics.

Go away
