'White Europe': 60,000 nationalists march on Poland's Independence Day

Source: The Guardian

Sunday 12 November 2017 01.20 EST

Tens of thousands of nationalists have marched through Warsaw to mark Poland’s independence day, throwing red smoke bombs and carrying banners with such slogans as “white Europe of brotherly nations”.

The march organised by far-right groups was one of many events marking Poland’s rebirth as a nation in 1918, overshadowing official state observances and other patriotic events.

Police estimated 60,000 people took part. Many were young men, some with their faces covered or with beer bottles in hand, but families and older Poles also participated.

Those marching chanted “God, honour, country” and “Glory to our heroes”, while a few people also shouted xenophobic phrases like “pure Poland, white Poland” and “refugees get out”.

I'm certain this has already been (sarcastically, natch) said on DU, but I shall repeat it: Thanks, Trump!

1. Alas this cancer is growing all around the world

It is sad to still have to fight this imbecility in 2017.

As if we were not all human, sharing the same biology and reacting more or less the same way to the same things.

4. But with wildly different values.

If you were a woman, would you rather live in Poland? Or Saudi Arabia?

5. I agree with you

But you are already a step forward.

I was refering to the basic needs or what making a human cry or laugh. Really the basic stage, nothing that involves any kind of social conventions, habits, etc.

I don't know much about the women conditions in Poland, but the country I"m sure I will never visit is SA.

The election of SA at the UN women commission drove me up the wall !!

2. Horrifying

I don't think it's mainly due to Trump, though. There has always been a certain racist and socially hard-right element in Poland: some of my Jewish ancestors left Poland in the early 20th century because of all the anti-Semitism. There are of course such elements everywhere: the LePen supporters in France; the Austrian right-wingers; and the horrifyingly right-wing Orban government in Hungary. And of course our very own UKIP types. And I think that Brexit is helping to stir up some of these latent xenophobic attitudes in many parts of Europe, though not as much as Farage would obviously like.

On a more hopeful note, from Poland:

7. Antisemitism in Poland

At least there was an over all drop from 14 million anti-Semites to 11 million.

Jews are more loyal to Israel than to [this country/to the countries they live in 51%
Jews have too much power in the business world 52%
Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust 61%

When I was in Kraków last month, I saw this...

3. The funny thing is,

 

White people are only 94-96% Homo sapiens, the rest is Neanderthal. The only pure Homo sapiens are Blacks whose ancestry is totally Blacks from the sub-Saharan Africa.
