Jarosław Kaczyński, leader of the Catholic nationalist PiS (Law and Justice) party, attempts to stir up old hatreds between Poles and Germans.

Jaros
By means of explanation: Jarosław Kaczyński is Polish. He made his speech in Poland. Poland is a medium-sized country in Central Europe. The citizens of this country are called 'Poles'. Poland has a history of conflict with Germany. For example, Germany invaded Poland in 1939.

I think conflict is 'bad'. I believe it is a 'bad thing' for politicians to cause conflict.

I hope the above explains the context of the O.P.. I have also, as requested, expressed an opinion on the matter.

Jarosław Kaczyńsky and his brother have been always full of s hit. Thanks bit to God the crap was reduced by 50 % some years ago.
May be Jaroslaw takes the next plane to Russia and through some more devine intervention the verbal diarrhea ends.

From the link:

Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of Poland’s main opposition party, PiS, ‘Law and Justice’, during a visit to Opole in Silesia, which has a substantial German minority population, suggested that Poland has been far too ‘idealistic’ to its German minority.

In his visit to Opole, on Saturday, 8th December, Jarosław Kaczyński stated that, “Germans in Poland should have the same rights as Poles in Germany.” He went on to claim that ‘privileges’ provided to the German minority in Silesia encouraged ‘separatism’.

Kaczyński is hoping to stage a March in Opole in May under the slogan Tu jest Polska, ‘Poland is here’.
Hope this helps.

Imho, it was about stirring up ethnic hate.
I think your OP would be improved greatly by editing it to include these helpful elements.

Would these Germans in Poland be former residents of the 'old' Prussia which was dissolved at the end of WW2 in the redrawing of European country boundaries ?

Many Prussians fled westwards with the advance of the Soviet armies but a great proportion stayed put.

Very few did. Those who stayed were of a mixed Polish/German background.

Its quite understandable the Poles might still be concerned about German revanchism. Not that its any of my business but I would say there should be limits on German settlement into the Slav countries. The Germans burned their bridges with the Slavic population
