Polish MP Slams Vienna Govt for Rejecting Statue of Polish King Who Rescued City from Turkish Siege

BBUK:

Polish MP Dominik Tarczy?ski has slammed the left-wing government of Vienna after they cancelled the erection of a statue to commemorate the Polish King who saved the city, claiming the statue might offend Turks.

Mr Tarczy?ski, who made headlines in July after a combative interview with Channel 4 presenter Cathy Newman, spoke with Breitbart London following reports that the leftist coalition running the Austrian capital had cancelled the proposed statue of Polish king Jan III Sobieski, who broke the Turkish Siege of Vienna in 1683, claiming it may offend Turkish residents.

 

“What King Sobieski did was an act of defence; if not for Sobieski all Europe would be speaking Arabic — and if the Viennese want to speak in Arabic now, they are very welcome, but it’s not going to change history. So please wake up, Austria, because history will not be changed,” Tarczy?ski said.

Lets compare the Viennese government with the current American:

  1. “… leftist coalition running the Austrian capital had cancelled the proposed statue of Polish king Jan III Sobieski, who broke the Turkish Siege of Vienna in 1683, claiming it may offend Turkish residents…”

    It appears select Austrian members of Parliament choose not to represent their citizens – and instead they opt to represent residents of Turkish heritage. In a sane world, this would be grounds for withdrawal of political seat.

    • Rewriting history so as not to offend Turks, that’s really odd. I’d say it’d be a good thing to remind them of their defeat! It’s also pointless, they’re perpetually offended anyway (or pretend to be).
      I guess they’re also offended then that the Allies won WWI. So let’s pretend Germany, Austria and Turkey won that one?
      While we’re at it, let’s deny the Armenian genocide too.

      In the Netherlands, a street was recently named after Ottoman pirate and slaver Hayreddin Barbarossa, a decision by social democratic politician Mary Fiers:

  2. It is obviously the Viennese government, not the Austrian federal government. Well, the Viennese gvmt prefers statues of Che Guevara.
