The European Parliament has finally taken a largely symbolic stand against rising state-backed ‘homophobia’ in Poland, where more than 80 towns have now declared themselves “LGBTQ-free zones” amid a heated culture war over so-called ‘gay rights’:
MEPs voted by 463 votes to 107 Wednesday in favor of a resolution condemning discrimination against LGBTQ people in Poland, and explicitly calling on the Polish government to revoke discriminatory measures such as the “LGBTQ-free zones,” established by dozens of conservative local authorities that have symbolically declared themselves free from “LGBTQ ideology.”
“The European Parliament urges Polish authorities to condemn these acts and to revoke all resolutions attacking LGBTI rights,” the European Parliament said in a statement.
Gay rights have become a hot-button issue in Poland this year since the ruling right-wing populist Law and Justice made its opposition to “LGBTQ ideology” a central platform of its campaigns for national and European elections. The party’s anti-LGBTQ rhetoric, echoed by Catholic hardliners, nationalist groups and state-run media, has painted gay rights as a dangerous, alien ideology — imported from the decadent, liberal West — that threatens the traditional, Catholic family unit.
Law and Justice chairman Jarosław Kaczyński, Poland’s de facto leader, warned in April of an “imported” LGBTQ movement that “threatens our identity, our nation… and therefore the Polish state.” In October’s elections, his party was returned to power comfortably with 44 percent of the vote.
This unabashedly homophobic stance has resulted in an increasingly hostile environment for sexual minorities in Poland, with many local authorities banning support to projects that back equal rights for LGBTQ people. Rising homophobia has resulted in ugly scenes such as when right-wing mobs attacked marchers at a Pride rally in Bialystok in July. And last month, the annual edition of an annual Independence Day rally organized by nationalist groups had a markedly anti-gay theme.
…Another Law and Justice MEP, former interior minister Joachim Brudziński, accused supporters of the resolution of “destroying the image of Poland for their own interests.”
When the Poles dog whistle that the LGBT ideology is ‘imported’ — just like communism was ‘imported’ — they are telling the world they know the Jews are behind this nation-wrecking agenda, and Poland is in their cross hairs.
Unlike the rest of Europe, the Poles understand the modus operandi of the Jews, having hosted the largest population of Jews in Europe at one point, which is why they have become very adept at sparring with the ‘rootless cosmopolitans’ in the EU Parliament who are actively trying to subvert and destroy Poland.
There are still many communist-era apparatchiks and young sympathetic Bolsheviks causing problems in Poland, but they are so far being kept in check because Poland has refused to accept Muslim ‘refugees’ who, they know, become the foot soldiers for these socialist revolutionaries still lurking in the shadows.
And the Poles fully understand that the LGBT agenda is merely a tool of the neo-Bolsheviks to bring Poland back under the boot heel of the nation-wreckers who dominate the West.
