Commentary on the Independence Day March, Nationalism, and the shaming of a people. (Polish translation provided below this).

Nationalism gets a bad name; it now refers to those that are fascist, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, and homophobic individuals. That’s a pretty sweeping term, and the reality is that it’s quite ignorant to label a country with all of those terms when “nationalism” can actually mean patriotic to many of those who live there.

Don’t people have the right to be proud of their nation and how it behaved in history?

Why are people being attacked and slandered for celebrating their heritage? Especially when it applies specifically to central Europe and Poland, a country that bravely resisted the Nazi Germans and the Soviets.

When it comes to people of other ethnicities, especially In the United States, people are encouraged to celebrate their past and overcoming their oppression.

How can one people do that openly and freely and are encouraged to do that while other people are attacked and slandered for doing it? That is a double-standard.

As a society, we are supposed to act with civility and with common sense, we should realize what we are doing here. We cannot judge one people according to one standard and another people to another standard; that is unfair.

Poland, in case, Poland was not a country for over 123 years and then finally gained independence after much resistance. These conquered and abused people kept their culture and language intact under strict rule, partitioned by three different countries intent on wiping them out.

Then during World War II, they were one of the only countries that did not collaborate with the occupying forces of the Germans. Unlike propaganda and revisionists claim, they worked unlike anyone else in occupied Europe to save their Jews.

If you try and prove this with facts, regardless, you will be the one called revisionist. Sadly, there is no dialogue when it comes to the factual history when people believe a narrative they have been indoctrinated with.

Poles then never conceded to the communist rule and even fought bravely resisting until 1963 with armed combat. While England celebrated the Beatles, the Poles were still fighting against the communists, can you imagine?

Tens of thousands of Poles were tortured and murdered after World War II and then forgotten to the world because the West betrayed them. How can we ever forget this! Now they are being betrayed by the West again for being “proud” of how they acted in the face of such evil.

So much of what is heard about Poland is incorrect. It is just inaccurate and negligent, like the recent attacks comparing Poles to Nazis regarding the stance on the LGBTQ ideology and not wanting it to be taught in their schools. It has turned into mass hysteria when the Poles, who are conservative, prefer to teach their children according to how they want instead of being pressured by elitists deceiving the public.

No longer can people be rational and raise their children as they want without being slandered in the worst ways.

Poland never made homosexuality illegal like the countries that are now shaming them.

This is one example of the current deceptions against Poland, including lies about collaboration with Nazi Germany that are false and proven false but spread anyway. It fits an existing narrative that has been propagated for decades from the very people Poles risked their lives to save.

Historically one can only come to the shameful conclusion that there is an apparent shifting of the blame from crimes committed by many Jews themselves. Remember, Poles could not write their history being stuck behind communism. Someone else wrote it for them, and they did so to make them look sinless and the Poles as criminals.

Now significantly, Holocaust revisionism has ramped up against Poland because of fraudulent Jewish restitution claims backed by United States legislation at the behest of the powerful Jewish lobbies.

This is Act S. 447 and seeking to extort Poland at the amount of over 300 billion. This plan is pushed heavily in the West now, and Poles are being compared to Nazis to get public support behind this dishonest act.

All of this is aimed against Poland using the term “nationalist” to attack and defame people who are proud of their country, just like Americans are proud of theirs. Just like when they celebrate on July 4th and are proud of what their ancestors did, so Poles have every right to be proud of theirs?

So in your mind, if it makes you feel better, say patriotic. Words are used and abused. The word “nationalist” is a word that is abused, and ironically many of the people condemning Poland of this are nationalists themselves.

Coming from Israeli Jews or Jews that support Israel, perhaps they should assess their own beliefs about Israel before pointing the finger at Poland. To support a country that provides rights specifically for one people over another, well, isn’t that ironic then to point the finger at Poland?
