    I am terribly disappointed by this post. I used to appreciate this website very much…

    Shouldn’t you have checked your sources/quoted both sides?
    Law and Justice has nothing to do with fascism. It’s a conservative, pro-Western, particularly pro-American party. It’s “euro-realistic”, it’s not against EU, it’s in favor of a more democratic EU. And it’s in favor of strengthening NATO.

    Yes, the “nationalists” were in the 11 November march. Yes, the march has gathered tens of thousands, but the overwhelming majority of the participants were normal citizens, with kids and grandparents, who had nothing to do with the “nationalists”. It was Independence Day, for Goodness sake! What’s fascist about celebrating it?
    The “nationalists” from Poland, friends of the Hungarian Jobbik, are a relatively small group, serving Russia’s interests (whether or not they are aware of doing so). They are OPPOSED to Law and Justice Party; they attempt to create in Poland an anti-Western, Putin-friendly “right wing alternative” competing with Law and Justice (unsuccessfully, as the elections have shown).

    These stories about „violence” at this year’s march in Warsaw are ranging from extreme exaggerations to outright lies. Over the last years, there have been indeed provocations during Nov 11’s marches. This time the march was peaceful.

    And, what’s wrong about participants in the march having expressed concern over the Muslim invasion of Europe, and having praised Catholicism?

    The other story about Antoni Macierewicz having “praised the protocols” is slanderous, and it has been first launched by “Forward”, affiliated with the American Socialist Party. Is that a reliable source? Macierewicz has declared he would sue those who spread this calumny.

    Lech Kaczynski and his party, Law and Justice, have been among the best friends the State of Israel has ever had (the EU in general does not behave like a friend of Israel, Poland under Kaczynski was a good exception). The fact that Law and Justice has now won the elections is a chance for Poland to strengthen ties with Israel again. Is it wise to put this chance at risk, by spreading unchecked gossip?

    What’s wrong about Macierewicz having cleaned-up the WSI, the Russian moles of the military intelligence? What was he supposed to do, in order for Poland to be safe and strong, able to serve Civilization as an efficient member of NATO?

    What’s wrong about investigating Smolensk? Is Putin such an innocent and trustworthy character that all suspicion regarding Smolensk has to be dismissed as „conspiracy theory”? Are you sure you have checked all facts about Smolensk? If everything was ok, why are the Russians not giving back the aircraft wrack, why did they destroy evidence, why are they reacting so nervously when questions are raised?

    Kremlin has every reason to hate/fear Macierewicz, Kaczynski, Law and Justice. Now they are going to face determined and realistic leaders in the region, leaders of a big NATO country, supporting Ukraine. This is the kind of leaders that are needed now more than ever in Europe. Western leaders – whose first concern is always to appease Putin no matter what he does, and who invite Muslim immigrants to Europe, and then impose „refugee quotas” on other countries – are angry with the new Polish government’s insubordination to their delusional orders.

    Don’t you see who could be taking profit from such campaign aiming at discrediting the Polish conservatives?

    THE RESULT OF THE POLISH ELECTIONS IS GOOD GEOPOLITICAL NEWS FOR JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION, AND VERY BAD NEWS FOR PUTIN.

      Thank you for the comment. It is not my impression that Poland’s Law and Justice party is fascist but, rather, that Polish and other European neo-fascists will be emboldened by this right-ward movement in the electorate, which was what I indicated in the post’s title. The downing of Lech Kaczynski’s jet in 2010, in spite of official probes, remains suspicious in my humble opinion. Doubtless, too, Catholicism is a bulwark against the encroachment of Islam upon Poland.
