I hate these people
So an EU commissioner links rejection of the EU constitution to risking another Holocaust by clinging to "nationalistic pride". Hmmm. Is it just me, or was the perpetrator of the Holocaust the one who was trying to build a single European state under his own flag?
This woman's (Margot Wallstrom) the "vice-president of the commission for institutional relations" and was speaking in a former "Jewish ghetto" in the Czech Republic. Hmm, inciting fear to try and drag people with you. Isn't that rather reminiscent of the tactics that the EU absolutely hated when Bush tried it on them, but it's perfectly fine for them to use it on their own citizens. And surely someone ought to find a better job for this woman? Isn't the Czech Republic a bad choice for giving this speech? The Czechs are probably slightly more familiar with a tyranny that subjugates nationalism for support of the Union/European Project/Motherland than a Swedish commissioner.
"Her fellow commissioners also issued a joint declaration, stating that EU citizens should pay tribute to the dead of the Second World War by voting Yes to the draft constitution for Europe." I'm sorry, but I think these people are actually scum, willing to jump on any bandwagon or use any event to ensure the continuation of their gravy train. After all, they can, and did, veto the auditing of their own expenses. They don't want this thing to end, they get too many perks out of it.
"The commissioners also gave the EU sole credit for ending the Cold War, making no mention of the role of Nato and the United States." Should people with such a lack of understanding (or who care so little about the truth, either way) of history really be the ones we entrust to make our laws?
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
