SouthFront accused of subverting Polish government

Original published by Telewizja Republika; translation by J.Hawk

Daily Polish Press reports that the Committee for the Defense of Democracy [an organization formed by opposition pro-EU, pro-NATO parties to the current Euro-skeptic and Russophobic Law and Justice government–J.H.] is spreading Russian propaganda by making available information about the Polish military published on internet sites promoting disinformation. Dr. Jerzy Targalski, a Sovietologist [USSR clearly still exists, as far as Poland is concerned], has no doubt that the Committee represents Russian interests in Poland.

At issue is the Internet page Southfront.org. It published an article suggesting that the dismissals of Polish generals are the effect of the negative atmosphere within Poland’s Ministry of National Defense which supposedly prevailed after Antoni Macierewicz took over ministry. The author of the text slandering the Polish army and the defense chief is a Polityka reporter, and the text was translated and commented on by J.Hawk [That’s me!!! I’m famous now.] known in the Internet from pro-Russian activity [I prefer to think of it as simply reporting the news the CIA doesn’t want people to know].

Southfront.org is a platform headed by Putin trolls (sic) , spreading Russian propaganda (sic), clearly anti-Western materials (sic), where it is difficult to find any criticism of the Putin regime (sic). SouthFront.org was described by European View as “it appears to be a professional project that arose within the framework of the information war and which is supported by the Russian military.”

KOD took Southfront.org as a trustworthy source of information and shared the information concerning the allegedly bad situation within the Polish military on the social media.

During discussion with Polish Daily Press, Dr. Jerzy Targalski, a Sovietologist (sic), stated that “the Committee represents Russian interests in Poland and therefore it is only natural for it to use materials supplied by Russian propagandists.”

J.Hawk’s Comment: This is both flattering and hilarious, and the level of hysteria reflected by the above article is truly indicative of the profound crisis in which Poland and other countries of Eastern Europe have found themselves in. SouthFront is not funded and supported by any government, its contributors are citizens of many countries, experts in their fields, who will never be seen on CNN or BBC not because they lack knowledge of their subjects, but rather because they don’t support the official narrative promoted by the neo-liberal, neo-conservative, globalist forces.

The reason why SouthFront got singled out for this treatment is because it reports that which no Polish media outlet, irrespective of their political orientation, is willing to report: Poland has reached a dead end, politically, economically, and…morally. Both the government and the opposition blame Russia for every imaginable sin, both in Poland and worldwide, and accuse each other of being Russia’s agents.  Both the government and the opposition support the xenophobic, militaristic, cleptocratic government of Ukraine.  The fact that the Polish opposition and government seek to outdo each other in their Russophobia is a reflection of their inability to address the genuine problems facing the region, inability that will at some problem lead to a far bigger crisis. Time will tell whether the Trump Administration is able to reverse the course of the outgoing administration and whether the governments of Poland, Ukraine, the Baltics, and other countries that have placed their bets on a confrontation with Russia will find a place themselves in the post-Obama order.

    Apparently, anti-Putin material is so hard to come by that Southfront is obligated to meet some quota.

  • SouthFront has hit the “big time” and has made the honor role. Congratulations! Keep up the good work!

    Do you remember Napoleon Bonaparte ? Well he stroke Russia because of a Polish histeria. Now what’s really behind the next ?
    In any case if you have links with the GRU it’s not a problem for me beacause I’m searching for second thaughts. And if you don’t then keep up the good work.

    • dienders

      Napoleon attacked Russia for his own reasons, polacks were just the cheapest possible cannon fodder. And they were happy to die for the French emperor….

      • Jacek Wolski

        So where the Prussians, Austrians, Italians, Spanish, Danish, Norwegian, Swiss and French. And I’m sorry to hear that your education system is so under funded in your country.

        • dienders

          They were running away of course: Prussians and Austrians, good joke lol, Spanish really ‘loved’ Napoleon, Danish and Norwegians stayed in Holstein, French were, well, French, he was their emperor, all of them were more or less forced to join (something like NATO) while Poles were trying to impress Napoleon even by throwing themselves into the river (search Wilia) and died happily for some foreign ruler… how pathetic is that?
          I’m sorry you feel butthurt, I don’t care about your ‘education’ (if you even have any)

          • Jacek Wolski

            Brush up on your history little man as doing a full face plant into a puddle of mud is quiet an embarrassing feat. And it’s never a “pathetic” cause to die for freedom. Again, something your country has and never will have taught you.

          • dienders

            Brush up you mouth, a bar of soap and a toilet brush needed for that dirty mouth lol…. you don’t know what history means you’re a clueless little 2 euro janitor in Sweden, a sex-slave trying to please his masters. You are below pathetic. Just as you entire ‘history’ (=asslicking)
            Go die now.

          • Jacek Wolski

            You’re not the sharpest tool in the shed. I’m sure Sweden is a nice place to live for a janitor, but I’ve never been to Sweden, nor do I reside in Europe, and neither am I Polish. Now shoo, go pick some tulips with your Dutch friends

    Personnally I think the Polish government is showing anti free press signs.

    Often I do not agree with SF, which I read on Syria, but one must have scources of information with different persectives in order to get a balanced view on matters.

    I know this paper is Russia minded and that is ok as long as they get their facts right.

    Lately one can find some fake news on Syria here, which is a pity, and maybe the paper has to be a bit more critical about some of their scources. One must be honest however, other papers have the same problem.

    • postdante


      Could you please present some examples of fake news in SF on Syria?

    • Stop thinking in duality terms. There is no such thing as pro-Russia or anti-Russsia! It exists only in MSM which you obviously watch. The world of geopolitics is much more complicated then that because it’s mathematics, nothing personal just calculations and steps to get the desired end result!

      The fact you’re saying you don’t agree with Syria with SF heavily implies you’re one of those that believes Assad is killing his own people willingly which SF doesn’t! It’s a war so there will be casualties, Assad hasn’t denied that but him doing it willingly is just moronic to say the least!

      Next time you want to accuse a news outlet of ‘fake news’ just give the evidence and proof to support your claim and let the others decide if it’s ‘fake news’ or not! It will save you the humiliation you just put your self in!

    • Catfish

      I agree other than about alleged “fake news” about Syria on sf. If you know of any please reply with a link to it / them or the or so the claim can be investigated.

    • Njordheim

      If you are not happy with S.F. perhaps you should stick to CNN, Washington Post and NY Times for type of “truth” that would make even Goebbels blush.

      In the mean time, name one mass-media American or European ‘media outlet’ that is not turned into propaganda portal !! ONE? All owned by the same 6 corporations that are at the core of the Empire’s “Establishment” that triggered revolt and populist moment against the oligarchy in America.

    Good job SF!!!!!

  • dienders

    Polish insanity and paranoia have no limits… their ‘leaders’ (clowns more likely) are raving lunatics and psychos, they are always trying to be more western than France, more catholic than the Pope, more American than Washington, and more anti-Russian than Hitler. Disgusting creatures.

    • Njordheim

      Very accurate observation, unfortunately!

    Poland needs to throw jewNATO out ….. jewNATO will flood Poland with Refujihadi Invaders
    NATO wants to take on RUSSIA?! (and maybe China)
    NATO cannot beat ISIS-AlQueda-Taliban-AlNusra
    NATO families will be raped & murdered as NATO Troops fight far from home.
    NATO installations will be sabotaged by Refujihadi Invaders.
    NATO Troops should turn their weapons on their ENEMIES that are betraying them.

    NATO defeated itself by being invaded and overrun by the REFUJIHADIS from the wars NATO started but can’t FINISH …………. THAT has to be a FIRST in all history.
