Polonia, Do You Need Any Further Proof that You Wield No Cultural Clout?
The other day the Huffington Post ran an article with an utterly racist and derogatory headline insulting and misrepresenting all Poles and Poland.
The Huffington Post would never run a similar headline insulting almost any other country. Not Burma. Not Uruguay. Not Mauritania.
Being called "racist" or any of its synonyms -- including "xenophobic" -- is the worst insult one can fling in these politically correct days.
The Huffington Post called all Poles and Poland "xenophobic."
And Polonia does nothing. And Polonia has been doing nothing for decades now.
I've been saying the exact same thing on this blog for years. And in my other published writing.
Polonia, you have an image problem. There's an award-winning book that addresses that image problem. It's called "Bieganski." But it here. Read it. Share it. Assign it to students. Do something about it. Don't know what to do? There are suggestions here.
Huffington Post's astoundingly offensive anti-Polish article is headlined "As Cold War II Looms, Washington Courts Nationalist, Rightwing, Catholic, Xenophobic Poland." here
