Biden and Big Tech Have Poland and Hungary in Their Crosshairs
Newsweek ^ | October 20, 2020 | Gladden Pappin

Posted on 10/21/2020 4:31:14 PM PDT by karpov

At a town hall event in Philadelphia late last week, former Vice President Joe Biden was asked what he thought of America's foreign policy under the Trump administration. "You see what's happened," he lamented, "in everything from Belarus to Poland to Hungary, and the rise of totalitarian regimes in the world, and as well, this president embraces all the thugs in the world." With that half-insulting, half-clueless remark—counting Poland and Hungary among the "totalitarian regimes in the world"—Biden set off a small diplomatic firestorm.

Or he would have, if these were normal times, and if insults to Poles and Hungarians were deemed worthy of major media outlet reporting. Protestations from Poles and the Hungarian foreign minister aside, however, no firestorm broke out in English-speaking media—and for one very simple reason. To the media class, the categorization of Poland and Hungary as "totalitarian regimes" was not a gaffe at all. It did not lead to fact-checking or hasty denials. (Notably, no EU diplomats defended their member states, either.) Rather, it points to new levels of laziness in American foreign policy thinking, where vague impressions of "totalitarian" (read: nationalist, culturally traditional) rule are enough to cast aside countries that have been allied with the United States for generations. For these viceroys of global liberalism, the new hostility is fully intentional.

Poland and Hungary are no mere idle participants in global affairs, however. Both are members of NATO and reliable U.S. allies. Both deployed alongside American troops in the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Poland, in particular, has welcomed multiple U.S. military bases. According to the Pew Research Center, 79 percent of Poles viewed the United States favorably in 2019, and 66 percent of Hungarians did the same.

Biden and Big tech are puppets of the Globalist Fascists and want to destroy Poland and Hungary because they don’t bow down to homo agenda and flood their country with foreigners.

What foreign policy success did a Biden / Obammy administration have?

They invaded Libya
They allowed the rise of ISIS (remember - they’re the JV Team)
They pulled missile sites back from Eastern Europe in order to suck up to Putin
They allowed Iran to build nuclear weapons
They encouraged South American dictators to plunder their countries, all the while sucking up to them
They encouraged and endorsed the rise of Radical Islam in countries of the ME undergoing the “Arab Spring” (nice job, dumbass Biden)

And others I’m too tired to keep printing.

The One who watches over Poland and Hungary has those who oppose His will in His crosshairs. Vengeance is His, and He will repay.

The latter of course hide Biden has ever been right about foreign policy ever. If I were in the military, and I’d be coming concerned

Ireland,a once proud and decent nation,has now been rendered just another tawdry little European cesspool thanks to the efforts of the unapologetic Maoists who've run the EU for decades. Those Maoists,with the active support of our Rat Party,have the very same plans for Poland and Hungary.

It goes well beyond making the world safe for the LGBTs. You must endorse, embrace, and cheer on the movement or face persecution.
