Poland has lived under Collectivism



By Don Jans

An essential element to transforming any country to a collectivist or communist nation is the need to censor any voice that opposes collectivism. This is the reason our founders stated in the First Amendment that congress can make no law abridging the freedom of speech. This would include prohibiting what one faction would consider to be politically incorrect speech or even hate speech. Freedom of speech is not to be restricted.

Poland has lived under collectivism, specifically Nazism and Communism. Yes, they are both a part of the collectivist immediate family. Poland led the revolt against the evils of collectivism, namely communism, in the late 20th century. Poland is well aware of what it means to live under a regime that dictates what can and cannot be said and the use of censorship.

Poland is trying to save the United States from being transformed into a collectivist (communist) society by warning us. Poland’s Deputy Justice Minister has called on the U.S. to protect “every citizen” from Big Tech censorship on social media, as his own country prepares new laws enforcing free speech standards online.

Polish lawmaker Sebastian Kaleta said it was “disturbing” that “Christian or patriotic content” was increasingly being branded as “hate speech” by the Big Tech firms which dominate social media, and that the public discourse should not be controlled by “anonymous moderators”.

Polish government officials have denounced the deactivation of Donald Trump’s social media accounts, and said a draft law being readied in Poland will make it illegal for tech companies to take similar actions there. “Algorithms or the owners of corporate giants should not decide which views are right and which are not,” wrote Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki.

Yet, the Communist Party of the United States (Democrats) and the RHINOS continue to proclaim the glories of censorship under the guise of truth and justice, per RHINO Romney. Many speculate that it is the irrational hatred toward Donald Trump that is promoting these collectivist or communist tactics. I would disagree. The collectivist movement in the United States has been here for over a century. Woodrow Wilson was an open supporter of communism and hater of freedom and liberty. He believed in government supremacy over the people.

FDR had many openly declared communists in his regime including his legal wife, Elanor, and FDR’s top advisor Harry Hopkins. FDR was an avid promoter of Stalin and it is because of the policies of FDR that Eastern Europe came under the dominance of the Soviet Union.

Barack Obama, Michele Obama, and Valarie Jarrett are openly committed communists proclaiming that government supremacy or the control of the collective over the individual is essential to “social justice”, “conformity to one ideology by all”, and “social and economic equality”.

Freedom Loving Americans heed the warning of Poland, and reject at any cost the demand by the Democrats to enforce censorship and abandoning the call to restrict speech based on the lies that censorship is superior to allowing to what they call politically incorrect or hate speech. This is and always has been an integral part of the transformation of a society to a collectivist society.

Don has been a guest on numerous nationally and regionally broadcast radio programs.  He is a weekly guest on a nationally broadcast radio program where he discusses collectivism and how it is impacting the United States, relating current happenings to the collectivist agenda.

Don has spoken to numerous groups across the nation on the topic of who and what is the United States and who and what is collectivism. The collectivist movement has called for a transformation of the United States. What is critical for all to understand is what is the transformation; what are we now and into what will we be transformed.  

Don’s speaking approach is the same as his writing approach, and that is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness. 

Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom. Visit his website: http://www.mygrandchildrensamerica.com/

Poland and the rest of those nations now free from Communist control can teach the clueless here. But will the Leftists here listen to them or think or study… ?

What a distorted view this Don person has. I find that in America today it’s the radical right that are most inclined to censorship of anything that challenges its loopy agenda. Not that it has a unified agenda. It’s more a common thread of fear and loathing of those they see as “other”.
