Bieganski the Brute Polak Never Dies: Joseph Puder

On April 5, 2019, Front Page Magazine ran my piece "The Brute Polak Stereotype Strikes Again." You can read that piece here.

Front Page has published a response by Joseph Puder. I don't know anything about Joseph Puder, but it is apparent that he no lika da Polax. You can read his piece here. It is titled, "Poland's Two Faces: The Plague of Jew Hate Once Again Rears Its Ugly Head." 

I am very grateful to Brian Kelly for the post, below, that appears in the comments section under the article. 


  1. This is a response to what you said? He addressed nothing.

    1. Chris ... he probably can't. The need for the Brute Polak is a psychological issue for folks like this guy.

    2. In all honesty I expected more from him. This is disappointing beyond words.

    3. May I encourage you to say that in the comments section under Puder's article? I would hesitate to post there myself.

  2. Chris check out the reply from Brian Kelly
