Leave your politics at the door. This thread is solely about pronunciations, you hear?

Poland just wants to follow suit without much critical thinking. I think they are Pole parroting.

Not the whole pole, maybe just the tip.  Still counts as being fucked though.

Not really, but the ruling party will try and force it through when they're not too busy trying to close news channels.

Countries with attitudes to LGBT rights as shit as Poland's should fuck off out of the EU. Actually no, the EU should fuck them out instead of waiting for them to jump.

So yes, Polexit please, and Hungary with them. And then the remaining EU countries should bomb some of the infrastructure built with EU funding into the ground. See how they do then. And if their people don't like it they shouldn't vote for right wing fuckheads who encourage the creation of "LGBT ideology free zones".

But I'm beginning to suspect I'm actually some sort of fascist deep down, so maybe I should be ignored.

They will inevitably be pulling some other countries with them, like a magnetic Pole. Or other countries will let themselves be guided by the Poles, intensely gazing at the Pole star.

How authoritarian are the Outlaw and Injustice party? How right wing are they? From an economic POV they seem to be pretty neoliberal? What are the effects of their influence in practice?

Sorry, feel free to ignore any and all of this but I'm interested in the politics of central and eastern Europe - particularly Poland and Hungary - and the effect that Sovietism has had on them.

I knew a Polish woman in Poznan who lived under Soviet rule and the first thing she did when she got a passport was go over to Africa to offer help, but I'm not naive enough to think that this was typical of the reaction to the fall of the USSR in general.

.

They're probably slightly better than Neo-Liberal on wealth distribution, but are very Christian-right, anti gay "all gays are paedophiles" etc), anti immigrant, anti free speech - they attempted to force through a law that all media companies had to be Polish which would basically benefit one channel that is overwhelmingly staffed by pro-PIS people and never runs anything negative about them. The foreign-owned channels are the ones that tend to call them out on their shit. Anti-abortion, anti-women's rights.

I get this mostly from my partner, so I'm not the most knowledgeable about it, but basically they're a bunch of corrupt, old, religious bigots.

I'm guessing Polish people, like normal humans, are a mixed bag.  Recently read Olga Tokarczuk's Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead.  Not really about Polish politics at all but yes, it is.  Having read it, I think Olga Tokarczuk's a super human being.  Read this book if you get the chance.

It's a long term plan for Poland and the UK to set up an Asshole's European Union. Possibly with all the countries that kill whales, and Monaco.

Just on that whole whale-killing thing.  Imagine, a world where there was a land creature bumbling about right now, today, chatting to its friends and family, living off of gnats, a land creature far bigger than even the biggest dinosaur that ever lived and people were driving around firing missiles at them.  Imagine how popular it would be if the slaughter of these intelligent, gentle, giants took place right in front of the kiddies instead of hidden behind miles of empty ocean.

It'll just be Poland on it's own. This will make the boffins at CERN extremely pleased, as they've been looking for a monopole for ages.

This is the thing, re: the EU. How supportive are they of LGBT+ rights, really?

The problem lies with humans, humans with their religions, their narrowness, their fear of anything they can't control or don't understand.  It's not exclusive to the EU any more than it is to Russia or Saudi Arabia.  In fact, I have a gay friend in Russia right now trying hard to get to the freedom of the French EU.

Really don't want to feed anything here but I'm really not comfortable with someone trying to imply the current criminalisation, murder and abuse of LGBTQ people in Russia and Saudi Arabia are consummate to the EU under the guise of some silly misanthropic woo-woo about humans.

No need to reply Buelligan; just wanted to register my rejection of such a statement.
