The anti-Semitic behavior that took place in Kalisz during the November 11 march was commented on by former president Bronisław Komorowski. – The authorities should not pretend that they do not know to whom they have given the public holiday as a gift. It gave back not only to the nationalists who walked over the Poniatowski Bridge in Warsaw, but also to those from Kalisz – said the guest of “Kropka nad i”.
On November 11, Independence Day, the nationalist march, which this year was of a state nature, passed through the streets of Warsaw. Police said it was calm, but there were several incidents. During the event, incl. the German flag and the image of Donald Tusk were burned, anti-EU slogans were chanted. On the same day in Kalisz, the nationalists organized a march, whose participants, raising anti-Semitic slogans, went to the Main Market Square, where they burned the text of the Kalisz Statute – a tolerance privilege for Jews, issued by the prince of Kalisz, Bolesław the Pious in 1264.
Former president Bronisław Komorowski said in “Kropka nad i” on TVN24 that the consent to this type of thing “comes from weakness and capitulation”. – The power, the government surrendered to radical nationalist and nationalist circles, giving them in the form of a gift (…) the organization of the independence march in Warsaw – he commented.
Bronisław Komorowski about Kalisz: the true nature of these circles had to reveal itself
According to Komorowski, “when it capitulated in Warsaw and the nationalists promised: we will be polite in Warsaw, the true nature of these circles had to reveal itself somewhere.”
– The milk spilled out, it boiled over in Kalisz, because that’s how they are. So the authorities should not pretend that they do not know to whom they gave the public holiday, so to speak, as a gift. It was given not only to the nationalists who walked over the Poniatowski Bridge in Warsaw, but also to those from Kalisz, assessed the former president.
