The Polish Resistance

On November 11th, Poland celebrated its Independence Day – a commemoration of the restoration of the nation’s sovereignty as the Second Polish Republic in 1918 – with many Poles calling for independence from the European Union ~


Tens of thousands of protesters poured into Warsaw’s streets on Wednesday for a demonstration organised by the far right, marching under the slogan “Poland for the Polish” and burning an EU flag.
Police said 25,000 people joined the march, which marked the anniversary of Poland’s return to independence after the First World War, while organisers put the numbers at 50,000 […]
“Yesterday it was Moscow, today it’s Brussels which takes away our freedom,” chanted one group of protesters.
Other banners read “Great Catholic Poland” and “Stop Islamisation”.


Just last month the Polish electorate made their feelings heard loud and clear at the polls. The country is definitely lurching – as one article put it – to the right; Poland’s Parliament Has Literally Zero Liberals Now. (Wow – if only we could make the same claim here next November!) The “Law and Justice” party won big ~

A crushing sweep for conservatives in Poland’s Sunday election means that left-wing parties have been entirely eliminated from the country’s parliament, the Sejm, for the first time since the end of World War 2.
The feat is all the more impressive because Poland uses a proportional representation system where instead of electing individual members, seats are doled out by how much of the vote each party received. To qualify, the United Left, a coalition of Poland’s social democrats, greens, and other left-wing elements, needed to get just 8 percent of the vote– and they couldn’t even manage that.

There’s no denying that the Muslim migrant invasion is driving nationalism in Poland, as well as in other European nations (- notably Hungary). But anti-EU sentiment, and conservative social values are also responsible for the solid shift to the right.
The left-leaning UK Guardian quoted Poles who thought the election results were “frightening” and “a big step backwards” (Boo-hoo. Maybe they should migrate to Germany with the Muslim horde) ~

Law and Justice, a Eurosceptic party that is against immigration, wants family-focused welfare spending and has threatened to ban abortion and in-vitro fertilisation.[…]

Must be the lingering socialism in their midst because they aren’t exactly fiscally conservative ~

Distrustful of Germany and the EU, Law and Justice wants more sovereign control and believes a strong Nato hand is required to deal with Russia. The party promises more welfare spending, a lower retirement age and new taxes on foreign banks.[…]
Two million Poles working abroad – including an estimated 700,000 in Britain – depend on the freedom of movement the EU allows. Polish Euroscepticism is also different from the British variety. It feeds to some degree on frustrations over sovereign influence and the economic dominance of neighbouring Germany, but for the large part it is linked to the country’s conservative family values and worry over gender politics and perceived secularist trends that are seen as undermining the influence of the Catholic church.

Overall, it’s that Christian, conservative trend that’s so encouraging.
LifeSiteNews asked Mariusz Dzierzawski of the (Poland) Right to Life Foundation for his take on the Law and Justice landslide ~

“Poles are tired of their lies,” referring to the scandals dogging the outgoing regime. “And their policies were very, very bad.”
Conservative Poles want a more independent country that resists left wing and sexually permissive policies. A recent mass resistance to the introduction of a radical sex education program forced the government to back down. A similar pushback from parents in the 1950s forced the Communist regime to put Catholic catechism into the state school curriculum and the Solidarity movement famously grew from a wildcat labour action into a resistance campaign big enough to topple the government, and, some say, the Soviet Bloc.
Without such popular pressure, Dzierzawski said, “Politicians don’t want to do anything morally conservative. It’s true all over Europe, in Spain, in Canada, conservative politicians try to do nothing because they think it is unpopular.”


In Europe at the moment, resistance to EU control, to the massive Muslim influx and to progressive social policies appears strongest in Poland, Hungary, and the other former eastern block (communist) nations. Independence is a precious commodity to these people because they still recall when they didn’t have it. And they also still understand that God is the true author of liberty.
George Soros Slams Eastern European Countries for Rejecting Illegal Alien Muslim Freeloaders and Jihadists ~

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban accused Soros, who was born in Hungary, of deliberately facilitating (and probably funding) the invasion of millions of Muslims, in order to destroy the sovereignty of EU nations. “This invasion is driven both by human traffickers and far left wing activists who support anything that weakens the nation-state,” Orban said.
