‘Why is history revised and thought policed in name of EU unity?

December 14, 2017

SIMILAR DOCTRINE: “In reality they don’t care a damn about freedom of expression because if they did, they would allow people to say things they don’t agree with, as established by Voltaire. Firstly they rule over people without their permission and when people want to get rid of them by limiting freedom of expression – What does that remind you of? That is why the Eastern and Central Europeans don’t like it.”  – Paul Neilsen of Debate The Left.

 

FREEDOM OF SPEECH: “I may disagree with what you say but until the hour of my death, I will defend your right to say it. – Voltaire.

SELECTIVE FACTS: According to Paul Neilsen, the House of European History, which opened in May, covers the period of the French Revolution to the present day. There are copious references to socialism, including Karl Marx and before 1789, it has parts allocated to slavery and colonialism but nothing else. It has been open for seven months.

DEMOCRATIC DEFICIT: Guy Verhofstadt, leader of the European Liberals in the Strasbourg Parliament, said this to democratically elected Hungarian leader Viktor Orban: “it is not all right for you to say that these people (in the European Parliament) are fighting against the Hungarian people’s interests. It is the opposite, it is not your interests but your interests is not the Hungarian interest, what we are defending here is Hungarian democracy and the interests of the Hungarian citizens.

HAS censorship, revisionist history and radicalism entered the heart of the European Union because it directly reflects the thoughts and ambitions of those who run it?

These are some of the uncomfortable truths brought to bear by a Danish independent voice who has compiled a podcast as why some European countries are turning their back on the idea of a European state or country.

‘You are name-called if you don’t tow the line’

Many MEPs in the European Parliament adopt an ideological bubble of individuals who don’t like any alternative viewpoints, says Paul Neilsen of Debate The Left.

Anyone who takes an opposing view-point of the European Union, be it the left or right of the political spectrum is conveniently name-called with the tacit hope that those people have their futures and hopes destroyed.

‘MEPs living in a dream world’

Nielsen said: “Many of the people in the European Parliament have a simplistic world view. Those who disagree with the EU are all populists who are driven by or related to xenophobia. Islamophobia, sexism, fascism, fake news, intolerance, and President Putin. These people are living in a dream world.

“The EU is apparently working with social media companies to limit freedom of expression. It goes as follows.

‘We define what freedom of expression is’

“Freedom of expression is important but it should not be ‘misused’ by populists, xenophobes, ‘intolerant people’. In reality they don’t care a damn about freedom of expression because if they did, they would allow people to say things they don’t agree with, as established by Voltaire.

“Firstly they rule over people without their permission and when people want to get rid of them by limiting freedom of expression – What does that remind you of? That is why the Eastern and Central Europeans don’t like it.”

Neilsen has accused the European Union of being the most “powerful creator of fake news” on the Continent, revising history to suit its own narrative and political agenda.

EU Museum has been open since May

The EU created the House of European History, a museum of Brussels that charts the continent’s history from the French Revolution of 1789 until the present day. There are special mentions prior to this date for colonialism and slavery. It was opened by the Commission in May of this year.

There is one room dedicated to the First and Second World Wars and this can’t be a bad thing, but there is a special place for Karl Marx and socialism but no reference to the continent’s Judeo-Christian heritage. The top floor is dedicated to the European Union’s work and how it has the solutions to fix the continent’s social and economic problems.

‘French overthrew unelected leaders’

Neilsen says: “It is actually quite funny that they don’t seem to realize that the French Revolution actually resembles what they are afraid of themselves – the people overthrowing their unelected leaders. So if you’re in Brussels don’t forget to visit this propaganda museum.”

Neilsen also claims that some of the leading figures in the European Parliament and the European Commission have radical pasts that the average person may not be aware of and also slips in clips from some of their exchanges in the chamber.

The Liberal leader in the Parliament Guy Verhofstadt, directed these words to elected Hungarian leader Viktor Orban, after his country rejected proposals to take a mandated proportion of the continent’s migrants and further European integration.

‘EU protects Hungarian interests’

“In the fundamental issue of not applying the rules, closing our eyes to what is happening. And no, Mr Orban, it is not against Hungary, it is not all right for you to say that these people (in the European Parliament) are fighting against the Hungarian people’s interests.

“It is the opposite, it is not your interests but your interests is not the Hungarian interest, what we are defending here is Hungarian democracy and the interests of the Hungarian citizens.”
