You will hang – with these words, after his speech in the Sejm, Grzegorz Braun, Member of the Confederation, addressed Adam Niedzielski. Artur Dziambor, Member of the Confederation, was a guest of Thursday’s “Fakty po Faktach”. The politician commented on the words of his club friend. – I believe that they were unnecessary, especially since they completely killed the message that was, the message was much more important than this one sentence – he assessed. At the same time, he added that “unfortunately parliamentarism sometimes looks like this”.
On Thursday in the Sejm, during the hearing of the current information “on the state of emergency in the health service”, Grzegorz Braun, Member of the Confederation, spoke. – May God protect us as long as the man occupying a place in this bench is responsible for this area of our state’s activity, unfortunately not in the bench of the accused, but in the government bench – he said, referring to the Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski. After a two-minute speech, Braun addressed Niedzielski with the following words: – You’ll be hanging.
The Marshal of the Sejm, Elżbieta Witek announced that she would notify the prosecutor’s office about the unacceptable statement of the Confederation MP. “Deputy Grzegorz Braun has crossed another border today. There is no room for criminal threats in the Polish Parliament, or in the entire public space. In connection with today’s words against Minister Niedzielski, I am submitting a notification to the prosecutor’s office” – Witek informed on Twitter.
Grzegorz Braun’s words were commented on Thursday in “Fakty po Faktach” by Artur Dziambor, a member of the Confederation of Confederation.
– We won’t do much about it. We will definitely talk to Grzegorz Braun about this speech. We are in the course of very difficult parliamentary debates. I would prefer that we talk about what Grzegorz Braun said throughout this speech – said the deputy.
Dziambor on Braun’s words: it is a rhetorical figure
Dziambor explained that the words of MP Braun were “rhetorical”. – He could have said “you will be sitting” and it would have been the same, or maybe there would have been no sensation – he said. He added that the parliamentary ethics committee would probably deal with it. – It is possible that if Minister Niedzielski submits an application to the prosecutor’s office because he feels threatened, he will meet Grzegorz Braun in court. However, we will continue to talk about important matters. For example, about the fact that we reported to the prosecutor’s office about the suspicion of committing a crime, inter alia, by Minister Niedzielski – said Dziambor.
He noted that he did not approve of the language used by his club mate. – I believe that these words were unnecessary, especially since they completely killed the message that was, the message was much more important than this one sentence – he assessed. – I do not use this type of rhetorical figures and it is difficult for me to be responsible for what other political figures my colleagues use and I will not hold them accountable or absolve them in any way – he added.
To the comment of the host of the program, Piotr Kraśka, that after such words addressed to the guest, the journalist would most likely be fired by his station, Dziambor replied: – MPs are treated differently, employees of various companies are treated differently.
– Members allow themselves freedom of speech. Sometimes they mistake it for voluntary words, he said. “We had to endure seeing much farther, more unpleasant trips,” he added. At this point, he recalled Jarosław Kaczyński’s words about “sewers” and “treacherous murders”. He also talked about “hate festivals” at the Confederation.
He admitted that deputies often exceed “parliamentary savoir vivre”. “Unfortunately, parliamentarism looks like that sometimes,” he said.
