Lech Kaczynski: Hero or Homophobe?
I see they buried the late Polish President Lech Kaczynski in a place usually reserved for Poland's heroes. And I'm glad that at least there was SOME controversy
Not everyone is proud of the decision taken by the Catholic Church and the late president's family.
Some 40,000 people have signed up to a Facebook group opposing the idea.
Others have started a group called "Yes to burying the president in the Great Pyramid of Egypt".
Because although some really good people died in that tragic plane crash, like Izabela Jaruga-Nowacka.
Lech Kaczynski was not a hero, he was a xenophobe and a bigot .
Speaking to an audience at Dublin Castle on the final day of his three day visit, Lech Kaczynski said that the promotion of homosexuality would lead to the eventual destruction of the human race.
When serving as mayor of Warsaw, he attempted to ban Gay Pride marches in 2004 and 2005.
He refused to meet with the parade organisers, saying, "I am not willing to meet perverts."
Which makes me wonder what Stephen Harper was talking about when he said this the other day:
“President Lech Kaczynski was a man who stood proudly and defiantly for democracy and human rights through even the most difficult times."
But I guess Harper would wouldn't he? Because for him and the theocratic homophobes in his ReformCon party, gays aren't really human and don't deserve any rights. And he's our Kaczynski.
You know I hate to say bad things about the dead. But people are always rewriting our history, or burying it, or making heroes out of monsters. And the truth is the truth and enough is enough.
Oh well....on a more positive note.
I had a Polish sausage the other day at the ball game...
I told the sausage man to stick a fork in it... to make sure it was well and truly done.
And it was DELICIOUS...
