Lisicki spoke on the topic of the European Commission’s (EC) initiation of procedures against Poland concerning alleged “LGBT free zones”. He emphasized that there is no such thing in Poland as literal “LGBT free zones”. He reflected on how these zones were negative PR created by certain kinds of activists, and how the EC uses false information to justify the initiation of its procedures – the commission is playing the “family rights” cards accepted by some municipalities as an attack against LGBT persons.

“So, the EC has manipulated the issue, but this is not the only problem,” Lisicki stated.

Lisicki warned that the EC has committed a far-reaching violation of its competencies and has adopted a purely ideological approach. “It is no coincidence that the issue of ‘LGBT rights’ will become the main battering ram and tool through which the EC will try to interfere with Polish legislation and force Poland to change its laws and understanding of what is marriage and family,” he explained. Lisicki stressed that if Poland does not comply, then it will face further attempts to introduce other postulates demanded by LGBT and gender ideologists.

“This is simply a huge scandal and a clear attempt to attack Polish sovereignty. This is also an attempt to force Poles and the Polish state to adapt to sick and depraved forms of functioning accepted by some Western states,” he declared.

Additionally, Lisicki pointed out that the European Union had broken the agreement with EU member states by claiming that European law is above state law. The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) is constantly reinterpreting the law and expanding the meaning of the agreement that Poland signed when it joined the union.

The editor in chief of weekly “Do Rzeczy” said that if Poland accepted the new competencies that the CJEU was giving itself, then there would be no real reason for Poland to have a Constitutional Tribunal. Moreover, what would be the reason for the functioning of other national institutions since the EC would decide everything – why would the Sejm (lower house of the Polish parliament) and Senate be maintained when their decisions can be questioned or rejected by institutions which do not democratically stem from the will of the Polish nation?

“Understanding everything in the way that EU representatives do, there is basically no room for nation-states. Poland would only be a province in a federal European state, and Poles could only enjoy the same form of autonomy that is held by German lands. Such a reality will become true if the vision currently promoted by EU representatives is fulfilled,” Lisicki warned.
