  • Ukraine summons Polish envoy as diplomatic row between neighbours deepens

    Over the weekend, Tommy Robinson was in Warsaw, Poland to attend the country's Independence Day march - a celebration of Poland's 99 years of independence from Russia. While the mainstream media claimed that 60,000 far-right Nazis took to the streets preaching racism and division, the reality of the march was much different. Tommy Robinson joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss his firsthand experience in Poland, the mainstream media’s distortion of the independence celebration, the suffering of communism producing a gratitude for freedom and the state of the European Union.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYTsRpstpBY

    WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland wants to be sure that Christian traditions are not subject to “ideological censorship” in the European Union, Prime Minister Beata Szydlo said on Thursday, emphasizing her party’s opposition to Muslim immigration. Along with Hungary, Poland has refused to take in any of its quota of the wave of refugees from Syria and elsewhere who have come to Europe since 2015, on the grounds that Muslim immigrants are a threat to their national security and stability. Szydlo’s eurosceptic Law and Justice (PiS) party appeals directly to the more socially conservative sections of Poland’s overwhelmingly Roman Catholic population....

[Snip] The AP wasn't the only mainstream media outlet to take issue with the overtly Christian commemoration, which was openly supported by Poland's prime minister, Beata Szydło. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) called the rosary prayer "controversial," suggesting that the event could be seen...
