European Commission Unwittingly Echoes ‘1984’ Slogan In Controversial Tweet

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

The EU Commission is taking some heat on Twitter after its account tweeted a message that some blasted for perhaps unwittingly echoing “Orwellian” themes from George Orwell’s seminal novel 1984.

European Commission Unwittingly Echoes '1984' Slogan In Controversial Tweet

Urging Europeans to get out and vote during the upcoming European Parliamentary elections, which begin in a week, the Commission’s tweet read: “The EU is peace. The EU is freedom. The EU is solidarity. The EU is diversity. The EU is human rights. The EU is opportunities. Vote.”

Some observers noted that the “creepy” tweet and the slogan it bore resembled the three slogans of ‘the party’ of Big Brother in 1984: “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” The fact that all of the European Commission’s 28 members aren’t elected might have strengthened the association for some, especially since the tweet didn’t include ‘democracy’ among its ‘virtues’.

Others pointed out that the tweet’s author may not have noticed the connotations of the tweet.

The Commission is responsible for proposing legislation, implementing policy, enforcing compliance with treaties, and representing the union in trade talks. It has more power than any other European body, and it’s totally unelected, with members sworn to protect the interests of Europe as a whole, not their home countries.

If populist parties in the UK, France and Italy make sizable gains in the upcoming vote, they could challenge the globalist’s hold on the European Parliament.

    Just take a look at what the European Neighborhood Policy has achieved in the Ukraine and that Orwellian aspect of this Tweet is fully confirmed.

    Indentured Ukraine lost its sovereignty and its future. Is bankrupt and corrupt even more. Internal etho political strife has resulted in a few ten thousand casualties. Ukraine abandoned all in the east cutting pensions, electricity, water. So no solidarity or even some empathy, no human rights. Forced Ukrainization instead of diversity robbing the east of its language and culture. The list goes on and on.

      Germany and Poland, UK, France with the US voted against a UNSC meeting over Ukrainian language and that Russian and other languages are to be dropped off. The same US lackeys hindering democracy and freedom and are the major source of global conflict. Time that their leaders confront the gallows.

    EU is 1984. Forever.

      Naah, not really. Give it a couple of years and it goes down to history as another failed project. If you were in Europe you would have noticed how it’s cracking down deep and wide.

        Of course. I didn’t mean that it will exist forever, but that they are forever committed to their 1984 agenda.

    🇪🇺 is full of zionists

    The fact that the entity is included in the farce that is eurovision sums up the core of the EU. The EU is nothing more than a zionazis banksters holding company to keep nations enslaved to the occultist masters.
    The colour coded politicos and their vassals should join the zionazis swinging from lamp posts.

    • Or maybe globo-homo centrist cowards, such as yourself, should join them. We don’t need scared little faggots like you around, so do us all a favor and die in a grease fire. I don’t read replies. Bye, bitch! ;)

      • R PLobo

        That made a lot of sense slhomo douchebag.

  • Jan Lavicka

    EU was founded by naazi, see Walter Hallstein (1st chairman). Now full of naazzi, neo marxist mentally ill and inferior paedophiles, just facts.

    EU and its policy aims to destroy Africa further. A good example is the destruction of e.g. poultry section in Ghana through mass-exports of poultry from EU. EU forced the necessary agreements on Ghana to allow this. Or look into the fishing rights issue on all coastal countries in Africa. It is a real shame how EU is behaving.

    This tweet is creepy. And I say this as a devout believer in the EU.
