A far-right Polish MP and former leader of the antisemitic Młodzieży Wszechpolskiej (MW-“All Polish Youth”) movement has been appointed to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s cabinet, earning a (((sharp rebuke))) from a (((prominent US Jewish leader who survived the Nazi Holocaust))) in Poland.
“Poland seems to have reached a new low appointing a neo-Nazi antisemite in charge of internet and social media,” (((Abraham Foxman))), the national director emeritus of the (((Anti-Defamation League))) and the head of an antisemitism study program at the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York City, told The Algemeiner on Wednesday.
Adam Andruszkiewicz, first elected to the Polish parliament four years ago as part of the right-wing populist Kukiz 15 party, was announced before the turn of the year as Poland’s new minister of digital affairs. The ministry was created in 2015 with a mission “to develop broadband infrastructure, support the creation of web content and e-services and promote digital competence among citizens.”
Andruszkiewicz, 28, is known for expressing strident right-wing views on social media, regularly dismissing opponents with terms such as “parasites,” “traitors” and “enemies of Poland.” As news of his ministerial appointment spread, video emerged of Andruszkiewicz — who is openly hostile to Poland’s LGBT+ community — chanting homophobic slogans at a 2009 demonstration against a Gay Pride parade in Warsaw.
“Where are the (((voices of outrage))) in Poland and in the EU?” (((Foxman))) kvetched. “And where is the US State Department?”
In one tweet, Andruszkiewicz said that his grandfather had been tortured by the Communist secret police in 1950, and that one of the perpetrators was supposedly a Jew. “However, it never occurred to me to blame the whole Jewish nation for this,” he said. “I expect a similar attitude from Israel. Is it so difficult?”
In a Dec. 31 interview with the Polish Press Agency, Andruszkiewicz claimed that he currently had “very bad relations” with the Polish far right, specifically naming the antisemitic leader of National Movement (RN) party, Robert Winnicki, as his arch-opponent.
“This is due to the fact that I think that the right wing must unite today, while the National Movement attacks me and criticizes me,” Andruszkiewicz said.
