Also of note about Polish history when it comes to the left is the absensce of a Polish role in Trans Atlantic slavery. The English, Dutch, Spanish & Portguesse all owned African slaves and did so in the United States before slavery was abolished. The only Poles in the US before the end of slavery were vehemently opposed to slavery. In fact Tadeusz Kosciuszko who has many bridges, streets, schools and monuments dedicated to him across the United States for his role in helping the United States gain independence from England personally asked Thomas Jefferson to free the African slaves with the money from his estate. Jefferson did not keep this promise unfortunately and the money was squandered and the slaves remained in captivity. Booker T Washington would learn of this and because of this new knowledge he visited Kosciuszko’s grave in Krakow Poland and put a rose on it to honor him in the name of African Americans. The first wave of Polish immigration would not come until the late 1800’s after slavery had already been abolished in the United States. Because of their Catholic faith Polish immigrants were often targets of the Ku Klux Klan.
So what of all this? Why is the left attacking Polish people? Because our history is stainless. We did not participate in Trans Atlantic Slave trade. We did not conquer the Native Americans. We did not perpetrate the Holocaust. We are Slavic, not Anglo Saxon like the English, Dutch & Germans. We are not the stereotypical “whitey” who the left loves to invoke to spread hatred & division with blacks and other racial minorities. For the left, this is not good. They MUST find a way to blame us for SOMETHING! So why not try to whitewash history a bit? It certainly has worked for the Democratic party in the United States. The Democrats have successfully convinced many people that the Republicans were responsible for Slavery & Jim Crown when in fact it was the Democrats who started Slavery, Segregation, the Ku Klux Klan & Jim Crow laws. important Black American leaders who knew the truth were killed by Democrats for speaking out against them (Martin Luther King JR & Malcolm X). They were replaced by the likes of agitprop con men and Democratic operatives Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson. You see today what happens to the likes of Conservative Black Americans Ben Carson and Kanye West when speaking out against the left. Character assassination to discredit anything they say even when it is the truth.Read the entire article and pray for the Polish people. We need positive role models in these dark days.
St. John Paul II, pray for us.
