Polish government officials have agreed to conduct a joint march with far-Right groups to celebrate Poland’s independence, making it the largest such event in the world:
Government officials have agreed to conduct a joint march with far-right groups on Poland’s Independence Day, raising concerns about the legalization of fascist views in Poland. The march has drawn hundreds of thousands.
Since 2009, the celebration of Polish Independence Day has become a rallying point for far-right organizations from all over Europe, some of which openly describe themselves as fascists or Nazis.
This year’s event, marking the centenary of Poland’s independence, attracted some 200,000 people – more than three times the numbers at last year’s march that was dubbed the largest far-right gathering in the world.
The event included explicitly white supremacist symbols and banners with slogans such as “White Europe” and “Refugees get out!” The rally was cited in a European Parliament resolution that encouraged member states to crack down on far-right groups, but the leadership of Poland seem to have other plans.
There was a last-minute attempt by the mayor of Warsaw to ban the march, but a court overturned his decision and allowed the event to go ahead – despite the fact that months of negotiations had failed to result in any agreement on key arguments between the state and representatives of the rally.
The final negotiations took place late on Friday night. The demonstrators were represented by Robert Bakiewicz of the National Radical Camp, an anti-Semitic group that traces its roots to an organization from the 1930s founded on the principles of Italian fascism.
The Polish leadership not only backtracked on its earlier position that the march could only take place if no banners were displayed, but now both the president and prime minister agreed to actually participate in the march.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was recently involved in a scandal after secret recordings from 2013 were released, featuring him making anti-Semitic remarks.
If this was not enough to worry the citizens of Warsaw, the Polish police are currently on strike, and have stated that they will not be able to provide security for the event.
While the Polish government has struggled with these groups in the past, the country has become a crucible for the European far-right in recent years, and Friday’s unprecedented agreements are sure to stoke the flames even more.
Apparently, Poland, unlike the western “democracies”, still believes in freedom of speech and doesn’t feel it necessary to censor groups and individuals simply because they don’t spout the communist antifa party line. In Poland, it is not considered a “radical” or “extremist” position to want Poland to remain White and Christian, and both the government and the Catholic church supports this point of view. As western Europe is engulfed in racial violence and terrorism, Poland remains White and safe — actually the safest country in Europe, so what could possibly motivate the Poles to open up their borders to “diversity”?
And, of course, any country that wants to remain White and Christian will be smeared as “antisemitic”, a term that has become virtually meaningless because of overuse. But if you want to remain White and Christian, you are, by definition, “antisemitic”, so you better get used to that label. Western Europe is judaized and therefore is dying in “diversity”. Is this really a choice that’s hard to make?
I guess if I would have read the original article before commenting, I would have noticed that the marched occurred yesterday…and the only reason I know it happened at all is because the article appeared here, so a basic media blackout is what occurred, and no violence was evident. There is also an associated article about the Polish military stepping in for security, but I didn’t get to read that far. No matter, they obviously did not have a big presence, nor any apparent need for them to flex their muscles or you would have heard about it.
This article is full of great news, despite the attempt to smear every positive aspect of it. One point in particular is extremely telling, as it runs completely contradictory to the mass media’s daily lies about ‘far right violence and hatred’…
The fact that there will be virtually no security present at the world’s largest ‘white supremacy’ gathering and Poland’s most prominent politicians will put themselves right in the middle.
Shouldn’t there be fear that literally all Hell will break loose? Shouldn’t the government put the city of Warsaw under martial law until it’s all over? What about U.N. troops? Evacuations?
We all should know exactly why this will NOT be the case, and one of two things will happen here – there will be a media blackout of the event because it will look too much like the beauty and discipline of the Third Reich, or there will be a jewish terrorist attack made to look like ‘wanton violence as espoused by the far right’ and plastered all over the media…
