Turns out, people DON"T LIKE the idea of millions of muslim refugees
pouring in over the border. Politicians know exactly what to do with
If you want a sense of where Poland could be heading, look no further
than the events last Saturday in Warsaw.
Tens of thousands of people — many of them young men with crew cuts,
but some parents with children, too — flocked to the Polish capital to
celebrate Independence Day in a march organized in part by two
neo-fascist organizations. They waved white and red Polish flags, they
brandished burning torches, and they wore “white power” symbols. They
carried banners declaring, “Death to enemies of the homeland,” and
screamed, “Sieg Heil!” and “Ku Klux Klan!”
The official slogan of the march was “We want God” — words from an old
hymn that President Trump quoted during his speech in Warsaw in July.
A dozen incredibly courageous women showed up to protest the march.
After mixing with the marchers, they unraveled a long strip of cloth
emblazoned with “Stop Fascism.” They were immediately attacked. Their
banner was ripped apart. Marchers pushed some of the women to the
ground and kicked others.
Ever since the Law and Justice Party won both the presidential and
parliamentary elections in 2015, Poland has been undergoing a
disturbing political transformation. Law and Justice is an Orwellian
name for a party that constantly violates the law, breaks
constitutional provisions and is hellbent on subjecting the courts to
its control. The party is dismantling the institutional framework of
parliamentary democracy piece by piece in order to remove any
restraints on the personal power of its leader, Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
“Prezes,” the Boss, people call him.
Two years ago, the party bet that latching onto the refugee crisis in
Europe would give it purchase on the votes necessary to win. Its
calculation proved entirely correct.
One of the first institutions the party hijacked was public television.
Law and Justice has turned it into Fox News on steroids, paid for by
the taxpayers. It feeds viewers nonstop propaganda about the mounting
threat to Poland’s sovereignty from the European Union, specifically in
the form of Muslim refugees.
