Wikipedia and anti-Polish sentiment

Wikipedia was saying that far-right groups were spewing anti-Polish rhetoric.

The far-left in Russia has a long history of spewing hate against Poles, especially the Communist Party. They attacked Poles for enslaving Belorussians and Ukrainians in western Belarus and western Ukraine in what was then eastern Poland or the Kresy Wschodnie. These were Polish lands that were stolen by the Soviet Union during the 1939 invasion of Poland. The Russians also wanted to conquer Poland and make it communist and eliminate the Catholic Church from influencing Poland and the government. The Russian communists whipped up hatred against the landowning Poles and against the Catholic Church. Too bad that the pro-communist authors of that post in Wikipedia failed to mention people whipping up hatred against Poland and Poles.

They also talk about an anti-Polish genocide in the Soviet Union committed by Stalin, of course. The Wikipedia article should note that the far-right in Russia aren’t the only ones whipping up hatred against Poland and Poles. Putin’s media was attacking Poland for being in NATO and attacking Eastern European countries for joining NATO and accusing NATO of provocation against Russia. Russia would like to have the Soviet Union back. I am not sure if Putin wants the Soviet Union back, but he is sure working on an aggressive and expansionist foreign policy in the area. They have taken Crimea from Ukraine and Wikipedia is already putting Russia’s annexation of the Crimea in the category of Russian irredentism.

What about the irredentist plans of some Polish people (me included) to get the Kresy Wschodnie back to Poland? What about restoring Poland to its 1939 borders? Why can’t Germany get its eastern lands back? Why can’t Germany have Breslau back or Stettin back or Koenigsberg back?

I was appalled that someone on Wikipedia was making note that the NPD was the only part in Germany questioning the whole border treaty with Poland and thus making anyone who questioned the idea of Germany going without its former eastern lands as a “Nazi” and that really pissed me off. Not every nationalist is a Nazi and Wikipedia’s article about the European radical right is laughably ridiculous and they are accusing them of having links with the American radical right. Well, they do not. They only share one thing in common, a DEEP love of country and hatred of political correctness and a hatred of where things are going in the wrong direction. These people that are democratic people are then lumped in with Neo-Nazis. It seems as though anyone who questions the far-left political establishment in Europe is labeled as a Neo-Nazi or being like Anders Breivik or whatever.  Breivik is a narcissistic nutjob that was only in it for himself. Breivik was a nutcase that wanted to make a big splash and name for himself. That’s all that needs to be said there. He was a total nut. The guy was a nut and he was appalled at the destruction of traditional European Christian society going back thousands of years. He had a point there in his idiotic manifesto of his that he posted on the internet, but he was a nut.  RationalWiki is run by socialists that think that they know what’s best for us. They are not communists, but they might be libertarians, I do not know. They trash Ron Paul and what he stands for.

Enough about them! I want to focus on the mess that Europe is going down into. I think that Germany should get back its eastern territories again. I saw a German book from the Meadville Public Library that showed Germany with its eastern borders and only recognized Germany with these borders on it. Germany should get back Breslau, Stettin, Konigsberg,  and Gleiwitz. Why the hell did the political establishment in western Germany keep the border treaty with Poland that was from East Germany? Why did they allow Poland to keep these stolen lands? Why can’t Germany get East Prussia, Prussia, and Silesia back again?  Why can’t Germany get back East Prussia?  I do not want Memel to be in Germany again, just to see Germany go back to its 1938 borders.  If they want Israel to go back to its 1967 borders, then why can’t Germany go back to its 1938 borders? Germany has a right to Konigsberg, (now Kaliningrad) Breslau, and Stettin.  Poland and the Soviet Union stole Germany’s eastern borders and expelled Germans from these areas that had lived there for centuries.

It’s well documented. Sure, people will call me a “Neo-Nazi” but it’s the truth. Germany should go back to its 1938 borders before Hitler invaded  Czechoslovakia and Poland.  Germany should get East Prussia back and Italy should get Istria back from Croatia. Ceding these lands to  Yugoslavia was a mistake in my opinion. Yugoslavia annexed Istria and parts of Italy and gave them to Slovenia and Croatia.

The Communists stole land, too. However the communist theft of lands from Czechoslovakia, Finland, Germany, Poland, was swept under the rug and largely forgotten today. The communists got away with stealing land from their neighbors. Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union got away with this.  The theft of Eastern Poland and Karelia and Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina should NOT be forgotten. Romania lost land to the communists as well. The Europeans have been fighting over lands for centuries and things were better when Europe was at peace with no aggression against fellow countries. Europe was better off without Hitler and they knew it. Europe should have gotten rid of  Hitler when he came to power, but it was largely too late by then.  Germany should get East Prussia, Pomerania, and Silesia back from Poland.  Germany has a right to those lands and it is time that someone talked about it. It is time that it was just neo-Nazi nationalist skinheads talking about it, but honest people with an honest cause.

Germany has a right to western Poland and northeast Poland stolen by Poland and the Soviet Union. It was once German land.  The Germans owned these lands for many years. It’s time that they were given back to Germany. Hitler did justify theft of the Sudetenland using these types of words, but honestly, Czechoslovakia should have kept their lands. What about the Sudeten Germans in Czechoslovakia that were expelled by the Communists? Can they ever get their lands back? It is too late for that? Maybe we should just give the Austro-Hungarian Empire back? Only kidding of course.  Let’s not do that because the Czechs, Poles, Austrians, Serbs, and Croats had a right to self-determination and to create a land of their own.  Slovakia exists in Europe after 1993, after it split from Czechoslovakia. Maybe Czechoslovakia should be brought back?  Carpatho-Ukraine was a theft from Czechoslovakia and Hungary stole it, too.

Breslau ist deutsch! Ostpreussen ist Deutschland!
