One country I won't be visiting anytime soon

I've just gotten report of a gay rights march in Krakow, Poland, that was severely attacked by right-wing nationalists.

Homophobia is a severe problem in Poland, a country that took part in Adolf Hitler's extermination of homosexuals (and many others), that gave the world a very homophobic pope in the form of John Paul II, and that is one of the few in Europe that supports America's W regime, both at the government and at the popular level.

The article says 90% of the population supports the current far-right ruling party's view on the "unnaturalness" of homosexuality. Poland has rightfully earned its way into my "nations to blacklist at any cost" list, along with much of the Caribbean, Middle East, and Latin America.
