Poland’s President Andrzej Duda has said LGBT “ideology” is like the communism his parent’s generation fought, and warned that with its bid to indoctrinate the youth, this “neo-Bolshevism” is even more harmful and destructive. He has taken a firm stance against the EU’s liberal imperialism during his pre-election campaign and vowed to protect children from the “foreign ideology of LGBT.”
The popular politician, who is seeking re-election, spoke to an audience at a Saturday rally where he said that his parents’ generation did not fight communism only to bow down to a new “ideology” that is “even more destructive to the human being.”
While such straight talk would have definitely caused the end to a politician’s career in most captured “liberalised” western countries, in Poland, where family values, common decency and a normal desire to have children is still the norm, it’s likely to fetch Duda votes from many conservative minded Polish. Throwing Bolshevism, which is largely responsible for the Russian revolution and death of millions, into the mix, appears to be a wise move as well, given that Poland’s tragic experiences from being in the Soviet bloc has been a hot political topic over the last three decades:
That was Bolshevism. It was the ideologizing of children. Today, there are also attempts to push an ideology on us and our children, but different. It’s totally new, but it is also neo-Bolshevism.
We all know that propaganda cannot exist without technology, and so the fight against the “LGBT technology” seems to be one of the cornerstones of Duda’s campaign. Earlier this week, he made several campaign promises, including that, as president, he will continue to protect family values. The pledges also contain a special focus on “Protecting children from LGBT ideology.”
Duda’s allies from the ruling Law and Justice party have made bold anti-LGBT statements, as well. Deputy head of the party, Joachim Brudzinski, went even further than Duda, stating that “Poland without LGBT is [a] most beautiful” sight.
Poland is heading for a presidential election, scheduled for June 28, and Duda is taking a solid lead in the polls with around 40 percent support. His main rival, left wing liberal politician Rafal Trzaskowski, who is currently serving as the embattled Mayor of Warsaw, is dragging behind with some 28 percent support. Still, to secure the win in the first round, a candidate needs to get the support of just over a half of voters and the country is likely heading for two-rounds of voting.
