“Christian” Neo-Nazi’s Riot and Firebomb Rainbow “Diversity” Arch In Warsaw, Poland

Rainbow Arch Poland burned

Anti-gay extremists marched through the streets of Warsaw, Poland during this years Independence March filled with hate and bent on destruction in which groups that included the neo-Nazi group All-Polish Youth, which calls for a Catholic theocracy in Poland and which has been condemned by Amnesty International as an anti-gay hate group. torched a rainbow installation standing for diversity in Warsaw’s main square.

Al Jazeera:

Warsaw’s main boulevard, Marszalkowska, and neighbouring areas turned into a war zone on the Independence Day March on November 11. Row after row of mostly male youth marched along the boulevard spilling into sidewalks and side streets.They carried flags with Celtic crosses (swastikas)  and white power fists, chanted slogans with visceral force and filled the centre of the city with fire-cracker smoke. The parade, with the number of protesters set at around 15,000, was organised by two of the most prominent far-right organisations in the country, the All-Polish Youth and the National-Radical Camp. Few passers-by dared to stick around and watch the spectacle. Within one hour of the start of the demonstration, participants had attacked two squats in the centre of Warsaw (Syrena and Przychodnia) and burnt down a rainbow installation in Plac Zbawicela, an artistic installation standing for diversity.

Being of Polish heritage I am shocked and disgusted at the fact that neo-mazi’s groups actually are allowed to exist in Poland at all let alone march through the streets openly unchallenged.

The Nazis believed all Slavs would be the slave race, there to serve the Aryans. Hundreds of thousands of Poles were were arrested and slaughtered – the intelligentsia, the disabled, the gays, the Jews and more

Looking at these fascists in Warsaw, makes me sick to my stomach.  The horror and lessons of WWII have been entirely forgotten.

“Today Christians … stand at the head of
[this country]… I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to
destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian
spirit … We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in
literature, in the theater, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out
the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a
result of liberal excess during the past … (few) years.”

— Adolf Hitler, quoted in: The Speeches of Adolf
Hitler, 1922-1939, Vol. 1

  1. I think this goes to prove that repression of gays in Russia is not coming from President Putin but is a reflection of a populist neo-fascist and conservative resurgence all over Europe. Even liberal Norway made a sharp turn to the far right in their recent elections.

    Gays are being targeted by anti-Assad rebels in Syria and Lebanon thanks to the US, EU, Arab royalty, and Israel campaign against the government of Syira..


  2. I hope this is a wake up call to Polish leaders. As gay rights have progressed it seems the world is sliding back into a darker scarier time. Especially in Russia and eastern Europe. Germany would never tolerate this.

    1. History repeats itself. With economic austerity there is often a rise in national chauvinism and racism. There has been a lot of hostility toward immigration in all nations. A lot of the the stone throwing toward Russia is coming from nations who have their own glass house revanchist problems, and that includes Germany. Germany may have the appearance of not having a problem because they are in many respects an intolerant nation. They are more adept at heavy-handed censorship and coverup. Plus, they have not felt the same degree of economic austerity and mass unemployment as other European nations.
