    Polish MP Dominik Tarczyński 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 Tarczyński, 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,” Tarczyński said.

    The MP for Poland’s governing Party for Law and Justice (PiS) also noted that his country had not given up on the legacy of Sobieski, saying: “We Polish saved Europe in 1683, and we’re going to save it again in 2018 and 2019 when we have these European Parliament elections. We’re going to save Europe, with Hungary and others.”

    Alt-Left Extremists Vandalize Monument To Polish King Who Saved Vienna
    Far-left extremists vandalised a monument to former Polish King Jan III Sobieski who broke the Turkish siege of Vienna in 1683 ahead of an event put on by the hipster-right Identitarian movement to...

    Telling the Austrians to “wake up”, Tarczyński warned them that if they continued down the path of political correctness “you will not be free men; you will spend all of your lives — and your wives and your daughters will spend all of their lives — under an Islamic caliphate. Is this what you want?”

    “If you do want it, go ahead — Poland will not allow you to falsify history. Our brave hussars stopped the Muslim army which was about to invade and take over in Europe; please remember that, and be thankful for that,” he added.

    The statue, according to Polish broadcaster Polskiradio, has already been completed and is waiting in Krakow to be shipped to Vienna. Czesław Dźwigaj from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, who designed the statue, expressed surprise about the decision, saying there were not anti-Turkish themes or overtones in his work.

    Currently, there is a small plinth on the Kahlenberg mountain where Sobieski led his troops to break the Siege of Vienna, which was intended to be the base of the proposed statue.

    The plaque was vandalised by far-left extremists last year following a torchlight memorial to the anniversary of the ending of the siege organised by the hipster-right Identitarian Movement.

    King Sobieski also made an appearance during U.S. President Donald Trump’s visit to Poland last July when it was noticed that he was placed next to a painting of the kingduring official photo shoots with Polish President Andrzej Duda.

    Trump's first photo-call in Poland saw him sat beside an oil painting of a prominent figure in Polish history and folklore — "the Hammer of the Turks".

    Rafe Heydel-Mankoo, an Anglo-Polish expert on European royalty, commented on the juxtaposition of Trump and Sobieski, saying: “If President Trump now believes in NATO and seeks Turkey’s cooperation in the region, he might want to downplay association with a king nicknamed ‘The Hammer of the Turks’.”

    I have to elaborate that this is NOT our Government decision, that Wien is one of the only situations that the now political isolated Social Democrats still control. So also I add that we are going to discuss that perhaps a statue of Jan III Sobieski could be positioned at one of our Government buildings at the exterior front of. Of course we would suggest that the Government of Poland remove their want with the offer to 2 BILLIONS to have an American Military Base in Poland, we do NOT want anymore American soldiers on THIS Continent, we WANT them to go back to America and leave this Continent.

    So we can have a deal we will discuss a statue of Jan III Sobieski at one of our Government buildings IF the Government of Poland remove the 2 BILLIONS offer to because they are WEAK and FRIGHTENED need American soldiers to hold their hands.

    "Telling the Austrians to “wake up”, Tarczyński warned them that if they continued down the path of political correctness "

    This Tarczyński has to get with the programme, this is NOT the NATION the NATION is NOT Politically Correct we have a Right-Wing Government with 62% approval rating and 59% voted for it.
