Polish opposition openly supports Belarus and Russia’s migrant push into Poland: opinion

During times of crisis, the Polish opposition is busy attacking the state from the inside, while Minsk and Moscow pressure it from the outside, writes editor-in-chief of “Sieci” weekly Jacek Karnowski

“These are a bunch of dogs” and “They’re simply trash” — this is how opposition supporter Władysław Frasyniuk spoke of Polish soldiers. A liberal TOK FM journalist compared the Border Guard to SS criminals; opposition MPs are scrambling to find new epithets to describe soldiers, calling them thieves or communist agents. These same journalists and politicians also try to break through the border perimeter from the Polish side using their legal immunities.

Every one of them is playing in accordance with the scenario outlined by Lukashenko and Putin, who are testing the resilience of the Polish state against a hybrid attack. It is clear that if they break through the Polish border using a human shield, then they will seek out further provocations such as the use of “little green people” and maybe even such tools which we cannot imagine. The creativity of Eastern services is impressive, even diabolical.

The virus of infantility and cultural Marxism have done their work.

The objective of the current clash is to test through battle how far Minsk and Moscow can permit themselves to go. It is obvious for everyone who has the foundational insight into reality.

An element of this attack is also the moral blackmail they are trying to use against Poland. A disgusting form of blackmail, indeed, since it was Belarusian authorities who brought migrants to their country and sent them to the Polish border. But even opposition activists and politicians are dabbling in blackmail. By insulting soldiers, they want to strip them of their moral right to act.

This is not the first operation of its kind conducted by the opposition.

Following their election defeat, the opposition reached for every weapon possible in the fight with the Polish government. They purposefully destroyed Poland’s image abroad; they cynically created legislative chaos; they brutally attacked the police which protected the most important state institutions; and they instigated riots while lusting for blood.

The opposition continues these actions, although Poland’s external situation is becoming increasingly more difficult. Joe Biden turned out to be a weak president and one that is weakening the US’s prestige by the day. Germany is more openly building its alliance with Russia by excluding Poland and Ukraine, and Russia is not even bothering to hide its aggressive intentions.

Unfortunately, it is becoming more likely that the opposition that is moving to the left will not bear the weight of Polish independence and secure Poland’s sovereignty. The virus of infantility and cultural Marxism has done its work.

At the time of the first serious test, the opposition is busy attacking the Polish state from the inside. What will it do when much more powerful pressure is applied?
