The amendment to the Penal Code, included in the coalition agreement, to prosecute hate speech based on sexual orientation and gender ex officio, has nothing to do with freedom of speech. This is typical Marxist terror, said Minister of Education and Science Przemysław Czarnek in an interview for Niezalezna.pl.
Over the last three years, we have made many decisions that modernize the school, and I am most satisfied with this modernization of the school, because we have allocated a total of PLN 15 billion to educational infrastructure during our government.
– said Przemysław Czarnek, Minister of Education and Science, in an interview published on Sunday for Niezalezna.pl.
Lots of changes in education and higher education
He pointed out that “in the eight years that we have been in charge of education, science and higher education, there have been many changes.” Among them, he mentioned: the abolition of junior high schools and compulsory schooling for six-year-olds, changes to the timetable, pay raises for teachers, changes to the university operating system, launch of the “Investments in Education” program, laboratories of the future in schools, Industry Skills Centers and Discovery Zones, Imagination and Activity.
Referring to the possibility of abolishing the subject “History and the Present” by the coalition of KO, Third Way and the Left, Czarnek stated that “they explicitly said at their electoral conventions that they wanted to abolish “History and the Present”, as if teaching contemporary history in their something was bothering me.”
They know exactly what is bothering them. Well, the latest history is the history of some part of themselves, but certainly the history of their fathers and grandfathers who created the totalitarian system of the Polish People’s Republic and they cannot be proud of this latest history.
– said the minister.
He added that “they would like to go back to the moment when modern history is not taught in schools.”
According to Czarnek, the announcement included in the coalition agreement to amend the Penal Code to prosecute hate speech based on sexual orientation and gender ex officio has “nothing to do” with the freedom to conduct scientific research, academic debate and freedom of speech.
This is typical Marxist terror, which is exactly what it is. Marxists, wherever they came to power, always introduced a linguistic revolution, and followed it with regulations and actions that absolutely eliminated freedom of speech and freedom of belief.
– said the head of MEiN.
It has nothing to do with freedom of speech, it has nothing to do with freedom of belief, it has nothing to do with freedom of thought and therefore it has nothing to do with democracy and the rule of law. This is what Marxists are like. They lie and defend their lies with criminal sanctions
– he emphasized.
““Consumption of power”
In the minister’s opinion, “the most important factor that shaped the political scene this way (…) is the use of power.”
People simply want changes and young people also voted for these changes
– he gave. He emphasized that the use of power is “the basic factor why today we have 35.3 percent. support, not 43 percent.”
He assessed that small entrepreneurs, farmers, women and young people “contributed a few percent to this result in a negative way.”
Probably also because of our mistakes, which, despite all our great successes, we have not avoided
– he pointed out.
Czarnek also referred to President Andrzej Duda entrusting the mission of establishing a government to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. According to the minister, “it will be extremely difficult (for now) to find a majority to grant a vote of confidence in this Sejm, where we have 194 seats.”
This is an absolutely democratic mission, logical in the principles of democracy, and an extremely difficult mission for Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. If this mission fails, then Tusk will be prime minister and there will be an eight-star coalition
– said the head of MEiN.
