The first phrase of the Polish anthem reads: "Yet have not Poland gone under". The presidential election on Sunday, which split Poland in two quite irreconcilable camps, does not, of course, the nation's doom. But the choice of Andrzej Questions, as did 51, 2 per cent of the votes, and supported by the reactionary Law and rettferdighetspartiet, means even more years with a in all respects provincial and nationalist ørkenvandring for Poland.
a nation divided in the middle so could be national reconciliation and compromise for many be a natural thought. But not for Jaroslaw Kaczynski, partieier of Law and rettferdighetspartiet, and Poland's real leader. Conflict is the energy of his political project. And conflict is hardly less of his candidate to the presidentposten almost suffered a humiliating defeat.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer? Log into herError the ABSURD SCENES: 24.

Kaczynski explained to a conservative, catholic radio station what the election last Sunday is really about. Yes, it was about, thought partieieren, that Dudas liberal contender Rafal Trzaskowski lacked the "Polish soul". And the proof that he had some Polish soul was that he was willing at all to consider the jewish damages for 2. world war. Kaczynski continued with that it was necessary to repolonisere Polish media. It was a requirement after one of the Dudas election points was that German media helped to destroy the Polish election campaign.
Here are two of the four of the Kaczynskis paranoid fiendebilder in the game; the jews and 2. world war I, and Germany. The third fiendebildet, Russia, did not play any role in this election, but has done so in the past. While the fourth fiendebildet - LGBT-movement - played the lead role. Open homosexual vilification was an important mobiliserende factor in Dudas campaigning. Among other things, he said that homo-ideology are more dangerous than communist ideology. This he said in the notoriously anti-communist Poland.
It's depressing realities of the Eu's major countries. The good news is, however, that Trzaskowski also managed to mobilize voters, and almost pulled a victory in the country. And with a vital liberal leader who Trzaskowski, there is hope until the parliamentary elections in three years. There must Kaczynskis and Law and rettferdighetspartiets winning streak broken. Otherwise, there is little hope for Poland as a modern european country.A glimmer of hope for Poland Leader You can submit your article and opinion piece in Dagbladet here
