Poland – 60,000 Nationalists Vow To March Tomorrow: ''Liberal Despotism Will Not Rob Poles''

Mr. Robert Winnicki, leader of the far-right National Movement, assured his supporters that Sunday’s planned “March of Independence will take place, as it does every year. Liberal despotism will not rob Poles of the possibility to celebrate.”

His words come after the liberal mayor of Warsaw tried to block the celebration this week, saying she feared violence and racist, xenophobic banners amongst the 60,000 or more that are supposed to show up. The court sided with Mr. Winnicki however, and the march will go ahead (see our related coverage).

Because of the international commotion, organizers expect an even greater number of participants this year.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Warsaw</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Poland</a>: Several events will take place on Nov. 11 in conjunction with Polish Independence Day. A march may take place from Sejm Parliament Building to Wybrzeże Szczecińskie. Violent incidents have occurred between marchers and counter-demonstrators in previous years. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Travel - State Dept (@TravelGov) <a href="">November 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

Mr. Rafal Pankowski, from the Never Again Association, a Polish anti-hate-crime group, claims that Poland’s Independence March has become a uniting force for Eastern and International far-right groups, stating: “There is a paradox which you might call the internationalization of nationalism,”

“There are groups that normally don’t get on, for example, Hungarian and Slovak nationalists are traditionally very hostile to each other. But on this day, they all march together. What unites them, I think, is a rejection of liberal democracy and diversity, and their hostility to Muslims that has come to the fore in the last years.”

Meanwhile, Warsaw itself prepares for the possibility that things could indeed get out of hand. Several foreign embassies, having seen the images of last year, issued security alerts warning their nationals to avoid crowds tomorrow. The US also sent one out.

And the Poles themselves are also holding their breath, trapped between concerns that the march could provoke more discord and a faint hope that the state’s takeover could finally break the far-right’s hold over the Independence Day schedule. Meanwhile, foreign far-right groups are arriving in the city in great numbers.

Mr Michal Szuldrzynski, a columnist with Rzeczpospolita, one of the biggest centre-right newspapers in the country, said: “The mayor’s decision was a blessing for Mr. Duda and the government because it allowed the liberal opposition to take the blame from the nationalists for banning their march, whilst avoiding the possibility of a neo-fascist festival being held on the centenary of our independence.”

“The downside for the authorities of the state assuming responsibility for what happens on Sunday is that if anything goes wrong, there will be no one else to blame,” Mr. Szuldrzynski said. “Instead of being full of excitement and happiness, we are fearing for the safety of people in our capital.”

I would love to move to Poland or Hungary.

Unfortunately, the USSA is on it's way to becoming a third world hell hole.

It seems the majority want illegals flooding the border and full-blown socialism/communism.

The controllers want gun control so citizens are defenceless against the violent illegals.

I'm glad I don't have children and am a little more than half way through my life.

Looking around you have to come to the conclusion that the majority of people, not all but most, are really useless eaters. They vote against their own self interest and focus more on Transgender rights that creating healthier and wealthier communities for all humans.
