The author discusses the crisis of the patriotic discourse pointing to the expansion of nationalist discourse in the present-day Poland. The fundamental distinctions between the two types of discourse have been discussed. The nationalist discourse defines a national community in ethnic ('blood ties') and religious ('Polish and Catholic') terms rather than in cultural terms. It appeals to frustrations and fear, the figure of the allpresent enemy and its conspiracies against the nation who is in a permanent danger of being deprived of its goods and values are characteristic features of the nationalist discourse too. On the other hand, the patriotic discourse defines a national community in cultural terms, it focuses on the positive, beneficial and favourable aspects, the mythical enemy is not present in this discourse.
