Note

1. Poland is a semi-Presidential government, with the President a little more than a figure-head, but not much more. He can't propose legislation. He can veto it, but can be overruled.

2. The president, Duda is a member of Prawo i Sprawiedliwość which is socially conservative, but BIG government, more welfare and socialist policies, so not completely 'right-wing'

Poland divided because of the Right?

So I suppose if the Left won, then it would be united?

These are the types of headlines the media uses to pull a fast one on people.

Of course had the left-wing Marxists squeaked out a win then the Guardian, aka Pravda, would have hailed it as a great unifying victory.

So, if I understand - if “Right Wings” win, the country is divided.

I’ll bet if the “Left Wings” won (a term that the Guardian would never use), the country would naturally be united.

The Guardian is such a joke, although their writers are much more accomplished than the NYT or WaPo clowns are.

If only the Communists were still in control, the country would be united.

The re-election of Andrzej Duda as Poland’s president this week was by the narrowest of margins and has sent liberals in the country into a tailspin.

This sounds familiar.

In America, Europe, and in the rest of the world the Enemedia plays the same game and savages right-wing populism as divisive while touting the positives of far left political movements.

“the result now clears the way for Poland’s ruling populists in the Law and Justice party to continue their politicisation of independent institutions such as the judiciary and the media.”

I’m sure they meant to say “de-politization” of the judiciary and the media.

Thanks for posting, but would you give us some more info, as Poland is one of the countries we really respect these days. In particular, are they really split down the middle like those results seem to point to, or did conservatives split their vote earlier and then acted like a bunch of spoiled brat FReepers and sat out the final election like 3 year olds that don’t get their way?

If Poland is really split down the middle, it will be tough for the conservatives there to hold their ground much longer, given all the tools of the Left.

All stories with editorial comments in the headline are propaganda.

GUARDIAN HEADLINE: “””Poland divided as right-wing populists win again”””

THE REALITY HEADLINE: “””Poland CONTINUES ITS BRIGHT FUTURE as right-wing populists win again

Except for FReepers is anyone else actually reading the garbage spewed by the LOW LIFE MEDIA?????

This has to be a bitter blow for Yurps. They really got their hopes up this time - but Polish patriots won again.

“Poland divided as right-wing populists win again”

When the liberals win by 0.5%, nobody ever says a country is “divided”.
