Father Bruce Wilkinson, Catholic Priest, Mongers Hatred Against Poles Even As Bombs Fall on Ukraine; Pure Evil

#FatherBruceWilkinson is, according to his bio at America magazine, a retired Catholic priest. 

I had never heard of him until his recent hate mongering against Polish people was brought to my attention. 

Wilkinson hates Poles, and he wants those he influences to hate Poles, as well. 

Wilkinson has over 7,000 followers, and if those 7,000 people read Wilkinson's recent anti-Polish posts, they have been educated by a Catholic priest to hate. 

On March 14, 2022, Wilkinson posted an article from the New York Times falsely alleging that Poles are white supremacists who have been kind to Ukrainians fleeing a war aimed at destroying civilians for no other reason than that those Ukrainians are white. 

Wilkinson reported that he had "personal encounters" with Poles in Chicago, and those "personal encounters" caused him  to decide that "#Poland has never been one of my favorite countries to think about or uphold with positive values." 

Wilkinson's statement is borderline incoherent and it does not reflect deep thought or a high intellect. Wilkinson's hatred is clear, though. 

Wilkinson's followers respond with further hatred against Poles. 

Wilkinson's hatred disgusts me. It causes me to despair. 

Wilkinson's hatred is especially toxic because it comes from a priest. A leader of Catholics. 

If a Polish American priest were to make an equally hateful comment about black people,  that Polish priest would face defrocking by sundown. Black Americans exercise power that Polonians only dream about. 

Wilkinson justifies his hatred by saying that he has had negative encounters with Poles. 

Look at crime statistics in Chicago. Below is just one set of statistics from the Chicago Tribune. 

"According to the medical examiner, Blacks were the victims of 80% of the homicides handled by the office. More than 1,000 homicides here were gun-related ...  ‘Eighty-six homicide deaths were under 18; 12 were under the age of 10.’ The Chicago police figure includes all manner of homicides, but the overwhelming majority of slayings in the city — more than 90% — were a result of gun violence, statistics show. All told, there were at least 4,300 gunshot victims, including those who suffered both fatal and nonfatal injuries, according to CPD data. The number is a significant increase from 2018, when 2,800 people were shot.”

Can you imagine a Polish-American saying the he decided that black Americans "are not my favorite demographic to think about or uphold with positive values" because he had been mugged, or raped, or robbed, or vandalized, or harassed, or beaten up, by black people in hyper violent Chicago?  

If someone did say that, the punishment would be severe. Wilkinson, though, can spew his hatred with abandon and remain a contributor to America, a prominent American Catholic magazine. 

And when did Wilkinson say this? When the world is on the verge of a nuclear war. When millions of Ukrainian mothers and children, children with cancer, babies, old women, are running for their lives.

Thank you to Jerzy for sending this in. 


  1. I do not know if it is the same Bruce It seems that he obtained money from Poland.

  2. I have been wrong, the writer of books is an another BW from Atalanta.

  3. "Just as Jesus went into the desert to pray, the deserts of the American West were Father Bruce Wilkinson’s destination for contemplation."

  4. Wow! Where to start with this?!

    "You say: Wilkinson's hatred is especially toxic because it comes from a priest. A leader of Catholics.

    If a Polish American priest were to make an equally hateful comment about black people, that Polish priest would face defrocking by sundown. Black Americans exercise power that Polonians only dream about."

    Indeed. And we must give him full marks for knowing who is a safe and easy target.

    If I had not left the Catholic Church in my early twenties, I would be approaching my local hierarchy with this - and I would take it as far as the Vatican if necessary.

    I would make the point that Jesus himself gave the mark that would distinguish his true followers. And it would be the unbreakable love they had for each other.

    At John 13:35 he said: "By this all will know that you are my disciples—if you have love among yourselves.”

    Where is that love?

    And at Matthew 7:12, Jesus gave us the Golden Rule: “All things, therefore, that you want men to do to you, you also must do to them. This, in fact, is what the Law and the Prophets mean."

    Would this reverend gentleman wish for his people to be vilified in this way?
