Over the past decade or so, European politics has been marked by a decisive shift to the right as has not been seen since the Second World War. This shift seems to follow an ebb-and-flow paradigm, and nationalist or right-wing parties are unfortunately, for the most part, unable to get enough seats in national assemblies to truly affect real and significant changes – hence, the current ongoing European migrant crisis, or as I prefer to call it, the third-world invasion of the West. A few exceptions to this rule have thankfully emerged in Central and Eastern Europe.
In Hungary, for example, I believe that the successes and pressure exercised by the far-right Jobbik party has contributed to the rightward shift of that country’s Calvinist prime minister, Viktor Orban, in his current term as president. While, politically speaking, Hungary has carried the torch for the European Christian Right since Orban’s national-conservative party Fidesz took power in 2010, Poland has recently joined the party as well.
Since the national-conservative party Law and Justice assumed power following last year’s election in October, the Polish government has made several encouraging moves in the right direction, initiating a counter-revolution against Western European-driven EU cultural Marxism. Poland has come under some serious fire for its anti-abortion laws and lack of recognition of “LGBTI rights” by Amnesty International recently, and one Dutch feminist organization last year went so far as to drop abortion pills from a drone in Polish territory to “liberate” their more traditionalist women. Along with countries like Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic, Poland has also been at the forefront of resisting the EU elites’ plan to overrun the continent with Muslim hordes.
Poland boasts one of the healthiest Christian nationalist movements in the world, and last year’s annual nationalist march in November attracted 50,000 Polish nationalists. On that day one traditionalist priest delivered one of the most inspirational speeches I’ve seen in recent years, and which I highly recommend:
This week, two more encouraging developments from Poland solidifying the right’s recent rise to power in Polish national politics made the headlines. The first was on Wednesday, one day after this week’s Islamic terrorist attack in the EU capital of Brussels, when Poland announced that it would no longer accept the quota of “refugees” that the EU has imposed upon them. Secondly, earlier today the Polish government announced a new measure to counter the sexual revolution currently being exported to this largely traditionalist Roman Catholic nation, introducing plans to ban the prescription-free sale of the abortifacient morning-after pill, which has been available over the counter to women over the age of fifteen since last year. One can take quite a bit of pleasure in imagining how the offices at Amnesty International around the world are all losing their minds.
It’s encouraging to see a country like Poland truly join the ranks of Hungary and strengthen the Eastern and Central European resistance to the wave of suicidal degeneracy being exported there. We can only hope and pray that the counter-revolution in that part of the world grows from strength to strength moving forward. All Christians from the Alternative Right can take encouragement from the successes of their nationalist resistance movements and try to emulate them in our own nations.
