Poland’s conservative Law and Justice party authored a bill that calls for up to three years in prison for any intentional attempt to attribute the crimes of Nazi Germany to the Polish state or people. It passed in the legislature despite opposition by Israel and the US and is awaiting the president’s signature. [The world has gone mad trying to eliminate free speech in the name of preventing ‘hate’. Neither truth nor love can be created by law. In fact, they both become victims of it.]

Despite US pleas to rethink proposed legislation regulating Holocaust speech, Poland’s Senate went ahead and passed the bill, reports the BBC. The legislation has sparked a diplomatic dispute with Israel, and the US had argued that it could hurt freedom of speech as well as strategic relationships. US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert voiced her government’s concerns as the Polish Senate was preparing to approve the bill Wednesday; the bill later passed by 57 votes to 23. The measure next needs to be signed into law by the president, who supports it. Poland’s conservative ruling Law and Justice party authored the bill, which calls for up to three years in prison for any intentional attempt to falsely attribute the crimes of Nazi Germany to the Polish state or people, the AP reports.

Law and Justice says it is fighting against the use of phrases like “Polish death camps” to refer to death camps operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland during World War II. Israel, however, sees the move as an attempt to whitewash the role some Poles played in the killing of Jews during World War II. Nauert said the US understands that phrases like “Polish death camps” are “inaccurate, misleading, and hurtful,” but voiced concern the legislation could “undermine free speech and academic discourse.” Members of Poland’s Jewish community also weighed in Wednesday, saying in an open letter that they strongly oppose usage of the phrase “Polish death camps,” but also oppose the law.

July 8, 2020 Dr. Scott Jensen 3

The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu.
