Poland Condemns Lawmaker’s Anti-Obama Slur

AP, November 9, 2008

Poland’s Foreign Ministry has condemned a conservative lawmaker who called U.S. president-elect Barack Obama the “black messiah of the new left” and said his victory marks the “end of the civilization of the white man.”

Artur Gorski is a little-known member of the opposition right-wing Law and Justice party. He made the remark to parliament on Wednesday, a day after Obama’s historic victory as America’s first African-American president.

The Foreign Ministry condemned the remark in a statement Sunday and said it will urge Parliament’s Ethics Committee to review the case.
