Election 2012: Lech Walesa, the Polish patriot and former president of Poland, and another ally our president has betrayed, endorses the GOP candidate's quest to restore U.S. leadership in the struggle against the world's despots.
Walesa knows a thing or too about resisting and defeating collectivist tyranny, and he has no tolerance for those such as President Obama who appease and apologize to it.
Unlike Obama, he earned his Nobel Peace Prize by leading the Solidarity movement that brought freedom to a Poland that suffered for decades under the Nazi jackboot, then as part of the Soviet gulag.
In May, Walesa refused to meet with President Obama, who had invited him to get together in Poland after the G-8 Summit in France. Obama did not invite him this year to a ceremony awarding a posthumous Medal of Freedom to Jan Karski, a hero of the Polish resistance in World War II. The two have nothing in common. Walesa fights tyranny. Obama appeases it.
During that presentation, our tone-deaf president insulted Poles by referring to "Polish death camps" that were in fact Nazi death camps run by Germany in Nazi-occupied Poland.
"When someone says 'Polish death camps,' it's as if there were no Nazis, no German responsibility, as if there was no Hitler," said Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. "That is why our Polish sensitivity in these situations is so much more than just simply a feeling of national pride."
Walesa remembers this slight and Obama's betrayal on missile defense after Poland stuck its neck out and agreed to host ground-based interceptors to be guided by missile radar based in the Czech Republic.

Damn, I love the Poles. They are my favorite “minor” ally from World War II.
Let freedom ping.
Seeing pictures of starving kids in the Warsaw Ghetto just tears my heart out.
Did Walesa mention anything about The Kenyan’s reference to “Polish death camps?”
The MSM was spinning overtime with the cursing out of the two obnoxious reporters. They tried to play down the meeting and favorable impression of Romney by Lech Walesa. They were hoping against all hopes that people would have forgotten the “Polish Death Camps” and the outright refusal of Lech to meet with the communist Food Stamp President previously. They tried to focus on the dumb a$$ and rude reporters and ignore everything else.
I heard Bin Laden is trying to get the Hell Post-Gazette to print his Pro-Bama editorial.
