Poland’s new deputy justice minister, a gay activist, has announced new laws outlawing “hate speech” on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and disability.
Krzysztof Śmiszek says the “hate speech” regulations will be finalized by the end of February. The populist Konfederacja (Confederation) party has expressed grave misgivings about the planned speech restrictions, which were included in the coalition agreement between the three globalist political alliances that have combined to govern Poland.
“In practice, this means nothing more than criminal prosecution for expressing views that are inconsistent with a specific ideology that is close to the new coalition,” warned Konfederacja politician Konrad Berkowicz.
“This is obvious censorship, an obvious attack on freedom of speech and obvious, creeping totalitarianism,” he added.
Prime Minister Donald Tusk is moving swiftly to completely undo the legacy of the previous conservative government, which governed Poland from 2015 to late last year. Not only have illegal aliens formerly turned away at the previous government’s border wall been invited to meet the Speaker, but conservatives working for state media have also been fired en masse, and former government ministers have been jailed and expelled from the legislature.
The process has been lawless, with the new government ignoring the Constitutional Tribunal, Supreme Court judges it disagrees with, and presidential pardons to implement its agenda. Nevertheless, President Joe Biden and his ambassador in Warsaw have signaled their approval of the regime.
