Glenn Beck recently deployed Bieganski and Polonians are shocked, shocked.
Why are Polonians shocked, shocked? Bieganski is real. He is deeply entrenched in Western Culture. Bieganski is not going anywhere, because Polonia has failed to address him adequately.
Here's Glenn Beck's money quote that has Polonia all adither: "You know what we're turning into? We're turning into the Poles. The smoke is billowing out of the chimney and we're like, 'Geez, have you seen the potholes...?' They're burning Jews right down the street!"
Beck is arguing that Poles did nothing to help Jews during WW II, and that Poles were themselves NOT victims of the Nazis. In short, that Poles are exemplars of the worst of humanity. That is pretty much one of the main thrusts of the book "Bieganski."
What is the solution here? Organization, vision, leadership, scholarship, books, publication, public talks, art, museums: all things Polonia significantly declines to organize behind or support financially. Yes, there are heroic people working individually here and there doing this and that small thing. But there is no critical mass. That's why Bieganski thrives.
Bieganski will continue to thrive unless and until Polonia takes on the challenge of this blog post: The Crisis in Polonian Leadership, Organization, and Vision.
