Poland is experiencing a severe crackdown on the LGBT community (for you cretins out there, this is shorthand for “gay”), with a little old-fashioned anti-Semitism mixed in. Before becoming president Lech Kaczynski had, as mayor of Warsaw, banned gay-rights marches. One of his enablers, Parliament member Wojciech Wierzejski, called for gay rights demonstrators who marched this past weekend to be “bashed with a baton.”
Needless to say, this happened. A month back, Poland’s chief rabbi, Michael Shudrich, was punched in the chest, leading Lech K. to apologize to the rabbi. We have to wonder if anybody ever learns.
Kudos & congrats
. . . to the Cranston police, who began enforcing the law by the time we had published a recent item about a new statute regarding the size of protest signs. They also deserve credit for their quick and thorough action in the recent missing girl from Edge¬wood imbroglio. While the citizen who spotted the young girl in downtown Providence deserves the most credit, Cranston police were on the case.
