Polish Nobel Prize Winner Lech Walesa Is An Anti-Gay Bigot: “Gays Should Sit Behind A Wall”

Lech Walesa homophobe

Lech Wałęsa,  the legendary Polish politician, trade-union organizer, and” human-rights activist” who co-founded Solidarity (Solidarność), the Soviet bloc’s first independent trade union, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983, and served as President of Poland between 1990 and 1995 is surprise, surprise a homophobic bigot.

Walesa, a devout Roman Catholic has sparked outrage in Poland and throughout Europe by saying in a television interview on Friday that he believes gays have no right to sit on the front benches in Parliament and, if represented at all, should sit in the back, “and even behind a wall.” and  also that gays have no right to a prominent role in politics to should  “adjust to smaller things.”

Said Walesa:

“They have to know that they are a minority and must adjust to smaller  things. And not rise to the greatest heights, the greatest hours, the  greatest provocations, spoiling things for the others and taking (what  they want) from the majority. I don’t agree to this and I will  never agree to it. A minority should not impose itself on the majority.

“From a human point of view his language was appalling. It was the statement of a troglodyte,” said Jerzy Wenderlich, a deputy speaker of the Polish Parliament with the Democratic Left Alliance.

A national committee devoted to fighting hate speech and other crimes filed a complaint with prosecutors on Sunday in Gdansk, Walesa’s home city, accusing him of promoting “propaganda of hate against a sexual minority.”

Monika Olejnik, a leading Polish  television journalist, is echoing the sentiments of Europe and said that Walesa has “disgraced the Nobel prize.”

He has also disgraced and ruined his legacy.

Spierdalaj Lech!  (Which loosely translates to “Fuck you Lech!” in Polish.)
