Poland's National Day


On the eleventh of November 1918 Poland was re-enacted as a state after 123 years of nonexistence. In late 18th century the First Noble Republic of Poland, once the greatest country in Europe "from the sea to the sea", was distributed between its neighbours: Russia, Prussia and Austria. It was not until some of our oppressors lost the I World War that an opportunity for re-etablishement of Poland occurred. Thus the Second Republic of Poland came to being. A young state, young government, new army - despite all this "novelty" Polish generals were able to win over the red scoundrels who started invading Poland on their planned march across Europe to bring in the "communist enlightment" to the "wrong ideology of European people". Then, the government started buidling up the national economy. They were successful, and fast. The City of Gdynia was the pride of the II RP. Therefore the people here celebrate joyfully the anniversary of the between-wars-Poland.


The Polish patriots always start every national celebration with a holy mass. Here an organisation dressed up in the pre-war uniforms with their banner

A very patriotic, joyful and emotional day. For the last couple of years the Polish nationalist organisations have been meeting in Warsaw from various Polish cities to participate in a grand Independence March. An ocean of people with an ocean of Polish flags shouting patriotic and religious slogans. A beautiful view! Many of them, however, football fans which makes it difficult for the left wing. Therefore two years ago some communist organisations invited young "pacifists" from Germany to fight Polish "faschists"! Last year police, masked, staged stone throwing against ..... the police simulating an attack by the marching youth! This year somebody burnt down the rainbow installation put up by the gay communities in front of a church in Warsaw. Of course, the marching boys were blamed for it although the March route did not pass that way. In short - only because the March is organised by nationalistic organisations of young people who are unsatisfied with this government and want Poland to remain catholic instead of "rainbow coloured" and national, meaning, not dominated by any other state or economy, they are being attacked by the mainstream media - very much government influenced - as "faschists". I share their ideas. Because I do not like it that Poland is immer noch under the shoe of Moscow and its economy is being "disarmed" by closing down Polish factories, such as most sugar production - have the sugar beets across all Poland suddenly rotten down??? Thus we often buy sugar from ... Germany. And I am against the Israeli claim for 60 biillion $ compensation from Poland for their property lost at the time of German occupation, which the Polish government seems to support!! Why not from Berlin? Or is the question politically incorrect?
So, here I am  - a "fashist" :)

The leftist-gay lobby is at large and supported by the "progressive politicians" including our government.
