This is quite absurd, it has little to do with the truth, but it can work for a certain part of the older generation voters, said Aleksander Hall, an opposition activist in the People’s Republic of Poland, a minister in the government of Tadeusz Mazowiecki, in “Fakty po Faktach”. This is how he commented on Sunday’s speech by Jarosław Kaczyński, in which the head of PiS called PO “a real commune”. – I do not know whether PiS members believe in it. This is total nonsense – admitted Grażyna Staniszewska, also an opposition activist in the People’s Republic of Poland.

Jarosław Kaczyński spoke on Sunday during the Family Picnic organized by his group at the LKS Wolania stadium in Wola Rzędzińska in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship. – Today civil Platform it’s just an old commune, these are the same people very often, they defend the secret police and their very high officials pensionstogether with the courts – said the president PIS.

Opposition activists in the People’s Republic of Poland on Kaczyński’s words

– It’s so absurd, you can only laugh about it. I don’t know if PiS members believe that. This is total nonsense – said Grażyna Staniszewska, an opposition activist in the People’s Republic of Poland, head of the Society of Friends of Bielsko-Biała and Podbeskidzie.

She was echoed by Aleksander Hall, also an oppositionist from the times of communism, then a minister in the first non-communist government of Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki – President Jarosław Kaczyński has been using very polarizing language for a long time, disqualifying his competitors. This is a kind of vulgar agitation intended to present political opponents in the worst possible light, and has nothing to do with reality, he said.

Hall: will it be effective?

The guest of “Fakty po Faktach” assessed the potential effectiveness of such a narrative. – For people of my generation and perhaps a little younger, perhaps the slogan of fighting communism has a certain mobilizing power. (…) Making such a combination: the current opposition-communism is supposed to evoke strong negative emotions. But for the 50s, 40s and younger generation, I don’t think it can really work, Hall said.

– Everyone politically shaped and sophisticated should know that the communist system was bad, that the essence of this system was a vision of a totalitarian state, but it is difficult to find a formation on today’s political scene that would be a simple continuation of the Polish United Workers’ Party – he said. – It’s all quite absurd, it has little to do with the truth, but it may work for some part of the older generation of voters – he admitted.

Staniszewska: our country is at a turning point, these elections will be crucial

During the Family Picnic, Jarosław Kaczyński stated that the upcoming parliamentary elections “will be an element of the fight for Poland. These will be the most important elections after 1989.”

– I believe that these will indeed be the most important elections since 1989 because our democracy, our country, is on the cusp. Either it will go towards a tribal state where warlords rule and rules do not matter, only what the currently ruling warlord wants, or it will go towards Europe, it will return to the European direction, where rules developed and accepted by the general public are important. I agree that these are absolutely key choices – commented Grażyna Staniszewska.

Aleksander Hall said that the stakes of these elections are whether “building an increasingly authoritarian state will continue in Poland, or whether we will return to democracy.”
