EU Threat to Break up U.S. Merits Appropriate Reminder
“European Union boss Jean-Claude Juncker issued a jaw-dropping threat to the United States, saying he could campaign to break up the country in revenge for Donald Trump’s supportive comments about Brexit,” the UK’s Daily Express reported Friday. “In an extraordinary speech the EU Commission president said he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest of America if the Republican president does not change his tune and become more supportive of the EU.”
Expressing support is hardly the same as pledging to use the apparatus of government to interfere in sovereign matters. But the threat was nonetheless repeated for good measure in a “tweet” by Eurocrat Siegfried Mureșan, spokesman for Juncker’s European People’s Party:
That such arrogance reflects imperious rejection of the right to self-determination for Europeans, and that Constitutionalists in the U.S. may not welcome foreign globalist subversion, are hardly considerations that sway the type of mentality that believes his place is to dictate and yours is to obey. Either that or the old Eurorummy is drunk again.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this Juncker character express contemptuous disdain for individual choice and freedom.
This is the character whose lickspittles characterize those opposing his determination to rule them from afar as “extremists,” a tactic we see “profiteers of hate” like the SPLC routinely use here to smear people of principle.
So, quite unsurprisingly, this is also the character who is spearheading European citizen disarmament, showing they have either learned nothing from the genocides of the last century, or else learned its lessons only too well. But just like our domestic gun-grabbers, he knows how to couch things in a way to make the herd believe it’s in their interests to leave the arming to him:
“We have fought hard for an ambitious deal that reduces the risk of shootings in schools, summer camps or terrorist attacks with legally held firearms. Of course we would have liked to go further, but I am confident that the current agreement represents a milestone in gun control in the EU.”
Of course he would have liked to go further. And not just in the European Union.
“Mr. Juncker’s comments did not appear to be made in jest and were delivered in a serious tone, although one journalist did report some ‘chuckles’ in the audience and hinted the EU boss may have been joking,” the Express report notes.
Perhaps they’ll also chuckle at a sentiment I first saw expressed in a poster on the (long discontinued) GunTruths.com website I was part of long ago. Those following Juncker’s lead may not have fully considered the implications of a weakened America:
