Boris Johnson is being accused of hyperbole for comparing the EU to Adolf Hitler’s plan for Europe (because invoking the threat of a new world war if Britain leaves the EU, as David Cameron did, is completely reasonable).
The pro-Brexit Tory MP said that both Napoleon and the Nazi leader failed at unification and that the EU was “an attempt to do this by different methods”.
According to Donald Tusk, the European Council President, the former Mayor of London “crossed the boundaries” by making the comparison.
Pro-Remain campaigner Lord Heseltine labeled Johnson’s remarks “preposterous” and “obscene”.
However, Boris Johnson is completely correct.
The European Union is basically what the Nazis envisaged for the continent post World War 2.
In his 1940 book The European Community, Nazi Economics Minister and war criminal Walther Funk wrote about the need to create a “Central European Union” and “European Economic Area” arguing, “There must be a readiness to subordinate one’s own interests in certain cases to those of [the EC].”
Nazi academic Heinrich Hunke wrote, “Classic national economy..is dead…community of fate which is the European economy…fate and extent of European co-operation depends on a new unity economic plan”.
Fellow Nazi Gustav Koenig observed, “We have a real European Community task before us…I am convinced that this Community effort will last beyond the end of the war.”
Other top Nazis who called for the creation of a pan-European federal economic superstate include Ribbentrop, Quisling and Seyss-Inquart, who spoke of “The new Europe of solidarity and co-operation among all its people… will find…rapidly increasing prosperity once national economic boundaries are removed.”
In 1940, Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels ordered the creation of the “large-scale economic unification of Europe,” believing that “in fifty years’ time [people would] no longer think in terms of countries.”
Just 53 years later, the European Union in its current form was established.
It’s no surprise that what these top Nazis proposed is almost identical to what the EU later became.
It doesn’t matter if you put a touchy-feely, lefty, liberal face on it – at its very core – authoritarianism is authoritarianism.
Boris is right – the EU is the very bureaucratic, centralized, dictatorial European federal superstate that Hitler and other top Nazis had planned to implement after World War 2.
