Disinfo: Poland is “drug-addicted” to the USA in all matters

Summary

Roughly speaking, it is not Poland who decides about the direction of its foreign policy. In fact, the Polish political elites are “drug-addicted” to the USA in all matters. Simply, they look at the actions of Washington and repeat them. Often, Poland even forgets that it is a member of the European Union.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about “lost sovereignty”. Poland is often presented as a “puppet-state” or "colony" of the United States. This narrative includes a message that the United States manipulates Poland and other European allies in order to carry out its anti-Russian policies.

The claim that Poland does not decide about its foreign policy is a conspiracy theory. Poland is an independent state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. The advanced political, economic and military relations between Poland and the United States have a mutually beneficial character.

Democracy in the United States no longer exists

Democracy in the United States no longer exists, as well as tolerance and ordinary human respect. In the coming Dark Age of Neo-Totalitarianism, there is no place for humanity, but only for impersonal individuals, without gender, race or nationality.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, questioning the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions and, in this case, to favour Donald Trump by framing him as the victim of a conspiracy and the Biden Administration as illegitimate. The claim is a conspiracy theory and no evidence is presented to back it.

See other examples of these disinformation narratives, such as claims that the result of the US 2020 election doesn’t matter because the real ruler is the Deep State, which will kill any US president that confronts it and is moving the country towards war with Iran and Russia; that Hillary Clinton published the Deep State strategy for the world; or that Covid-19 vaccines will lead to full-spectrum dominance.

US elections were fraudulent

The provoked siege of the Capitol building was good for one thing: nobody talks about election fraud anymore. Every lawsuit filed against fraudulent practices was struck down by courts, they did not even listen to the “likely rightful complaints.” These complaints are right, as there are thousands and thousands of videos, documents showing what happened in the US.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about fraud in the US elections.

First, there is no proof that the Capital's siege was a "provocation". In fact, the president himself encouraged attendees of his "Save America Rally" before the siege to head to the Capitol to demonstrate against President-elect Joe Biden's victory. The crowd chanted "Fight for Trump" at the end of the speech. The people arrested in relation to the siege are connected to, for instance, QAnon and the Proud Boys, organizations openly supporting President Trump.
