White Nationalists March in Poland

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-day?CMP=fb_gu
Quote:
Tens of thousands of nationalist demonstrators marched through Warsaw at the weekend to mark Poland’s independence day, throwing red-smoke bombs and carrying banners with slogans such as “white Europe of brotherly nations”.
I'm shocked at the scale of this: 60,000 people. Things are getting really ugly in Europe.

Russia will handle it like they did in the Ukraine.

M'kay with me - especially if their ship(s) accidentally () sink somewhere mid-Atlantic.

They probably see what they suffered under Nazism and subsequently communism as hardships imposed by "foreigners", which feeds the nationalist fascist ideals.

Oddly, enough, they seem to have forgotten that both the Germans and Russians are "white" (quotations used because the Nazis didn't consider the Poles to be really "white", but just Slavs).

Personally, I feel they should have gotten the same greeting as those of a similar mindset received between 1941 and 1945...

I suggest starting with a 21 Katyusha salute. Then, to show how "happy" we are to have them in town, I suggest a flyover with Lancasters dropping "gifts" on the gathered crowd. After all of that, a welcoming committee of T34s, Shermans, and Churchills should be sent to greet the survivors participants...*

* The only problem with my greeting is there may not much left of the area by the time I was done...

Not really savvy about Polish politics. Are these guys pushing to leave the EU altogether?
