Praise for the Poles -- and a question

The New Observer reports that 50,000 Poles rallied to demonstrate against the EU and its policy of engineering the ongoing invasion by 'refugees.' I'm encouraged to see that many of the Eastern Europeans can see this EU-sponsored replacement of Europeans for the great wrong that it is. I applaud the Poles for having the spirit to make their voices heard in a peaceful march and demonstration. That's how free speech is meant to be used, especially when other avenues of expression are closed -- as in our Western countries, where the media are hostile to the majority populace.

The massive demonstration—the largest such event yet in Poland—comes only two weeks after the populist Law and Justice party, described by the controlled media as “right wing”—convincingly won elections in that country, forcing out the previous administration which had not taken a firm enough line against the invasion of Europe."

And at least the Eastern Europeans seem to have some political parties that actually represents their interests and their will, unlike our system. It was a mistake, in my opinion, to have joined the EU, which has long shown itself to be a totalitarian body.

Adam Andruszkiewicz, leader of the All-Polish Youth, spoke of the EU, saying that his group's mission was to

"...rescue the Republic from the hands of the people who brought about the fact that we have to say goodbye to our people who have gone to London to wash dishes . . .'

And here is where my question comes in: Andruszkiewicz refers to his people who have gone to London to wash dishes -- he means the great numbers of Poles who have gone as economic migrants, especially to the UK and apparently to Ireland as well as other countries. The implication is that they have been forced to migrate to other countries in order to earn a living. Whether they are truly forced by circumstances or whether they go simply to go where they can earn much better wages, so as to have more material things is a matter for debate. But is there not just a touch of irony in the demonstrators chanting 'Poland for the Polish" when they obviously don't believe that Ireland is for the Irish, or England for the English, Wales for the Welsh, and so on? One rule for me, another for thee?

From my experience I know that many British people resent the great numbers of Poles in their countries, as in some cases they have come to dominate certain smaller towns or neighborhoods. And they do take jobs away from the natives of the UK, just as much as the nonwhite economic immigrants do. Is it any more desirable to have one's job taken by a White Eastern European than by a nonwhite? Or is it less vexing hear Polish spoken in certain areas in place of English, as opposed to hearing Urdu or some other language? Either way, one's country is less true to itself, and is irrevocably changed by immigrants in large numbers. We see how well it's worked in America. Do we wish more of it on Western Europe, regardless of who the immigrants are?

This is not about 'hating' Poles or Eastern Europeans generally. I am all in favor of Polish nationalism and if it helps to repel this invasion and to restore Europe to its rightful self, then I cheer it. I would think that Polish nationalism, though, should lead Poles to want to stay at home amongst their own kinsmen and help to better conditions there, so that emigration would not be ''necessary'' if it indeed it is necessary.

Each European people has a right to be who they are, truly at home and at peace amongst their own people, preserving their own heritage, language, history, and traditions. All this nomadic going to and fro, up and down in the world in search of  a ''better life'' should stop; it's creating chaos and turmoil, doing violence not merely in a physical sense, but to their collective spirit. The mistaken idea of 'pan-European nationalism' should be forgotten; just because Europeans are all White does not mean that they are interchangeable, and that Europe should become one big experiment in White multiculturalism.
