Some days your head might explode

I knew I shouldn't have looked at the British news on Victory in Europe day. Today, the 60th anniversary of the end of WWII, we honor the millions who laid down their lives to defeat Nazism. But I knew that some politician would tarnish the memory of the dead for their own sleazy political ends. The only question was, who?

Step forward Swedish European Commissioner Margot Wallstrom.

Wallstrom is in charge of selling the European Constitution (which establishes a United States of Europe where all the EU countries surrender self-government in favour of unelected and unaccountable rule from the European Commission in Brussels).

Wallstrom claims that:

[...] politicians who resisted pooling national sovereignty risked a return to Nazi horrors of the 1930s and 1940s.

Mrs Wallstrom, vice-president of the commission for institutional relations and communications, was speaking in the former Jewish ghetto of Terezin in the Czech Republic.

She blamed the Second World War on "nationalistic pride and greed, and international rivalry for wealth and power". The EU had replaced such rivalry with an historic agreement to share national sovereignty.

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.

Incidentally, there's more about Wallstrom's wonderful homeland (or should that be Fatherland) here and here.

I am so damned furious all I can say is this.

How fucking dare she?

WWII was caused by the nationalistic pride and greed of Adolf Hitler, who wanted the whole of Europe governed from Berlin, in his words, a thousand year Reich.

With a rhetorical flourish worthy of Goebbels himself (who always claimed that the bigger the lie, the better) the EU commissioners somehow claim we are honoring the dead by voting our own governments out of existence in favour of European rule direct from Brussels.

Those brave people must be turning in their grave.

One question: what rock do they find European Commissioners under?
