The Face of EU Dictatorship: President Vaclav Klaus Before the EU-Volksgerichtshof

Posted By Anders On December 7, 2008 @ 20:34 In English, Euromed | 7 Comments

My [1] latest post was about the elements making the EU a dictatorship.
In the following the President of the EU Parliament, Hans-Gert Pöttering, attacks Czech President, Vaclav Klaus, perhaps the only decent and honest politician left in the EU area, for comparing the EU with the USSR. Which Klaus did not do. He just said that he knows the the tone of dictatorship.
Vladimir bukovskyAnd Mr. Klaus does not have to compare the EUSSR and the USSR by names.

A real and independent specialist has already done so: [2] Mr. Vladimir Bukovsky, the famous Soviet dissident who spent many years in the Gulag Archipelage, expelled from Russia – and was later summoned to be the witness of Boris Yeltsin in his case against the Soviet Union. Mr. Bukovsky drew clear parallels between the EU and the USSR – and dubbed the EU the EUSSR. 

So,  the parallel between the EU and the USSR is beyond any doubt.

[3] Vaclav-klausMr Klaus has committed 2 “sins” in the eyes of the EU:
He has seen through the alarmist lie of man-made climate change – and compares the alarmism with the experiences he has from former dictatorship, even saying:“This is [4] about world governance and our freedom”.
Mr. Klaus is [5] opposed to the Lisbon Treaty, seeing that it [6] removes the sovereignty of national states. During his recent [7] state visit to Ireland he met with the leader of the victorious Irish No-campaign, Declan Ganley.

So, in stead of listening to Dr. Klaus´ arguments , which are scientifically based and logical as opposed to those of the eurocrats, the latter, knowing they cannot beat Dr. Klaus by arguments, try to bully him in place. However, corrupt tyrants do not know the moral strength of a man who is honest, decent and right – and knows he is.  Just think of the victim before Freisler in the video below: He does not repent having fought  injustice.

The following scandalous interview reminds me of "Judge" [8] Roland Freisler´s performance (video) when he condemned the men behind the attempt on Hitler as of july 20, 1944. That the scandal did take place is confirmed by [9] EU Business News

[10] EU Referendum Dec. 6, 2008 Excerpts from the transcript of a meeting between Václav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic, and members of the Conference of the Presidents of the European Parliament, Friday 5 December 2008, Prague Castle.

DanielCohnBendit    Daniel Cohn-Bendit MEP: I brought you a flag, which - as we heard - you have everywhere here at the Prague Castle. It is the flag of the European Union, so I will place it here in front of you.

    It will be a tough Presidency. The Czech Republic will have to deal with the work directive and climate package. EU climate package represents less than what our fraction would wish for. It will be necessary to hold on to the minimum of that. I am certain that the climate change represents not only a risk, but also a danger for the future development of the planet. My view is based on scientific views and majority approval of the EP and I know you disagree with me. You can believe what you want, I don't believe, I know that global warming is a reality.

    Lisbon Treaty: I don't care about your opinions on it. I want to know what you are going to do if the Czech Chamber of Deputies and the Senate approve it. Will you respect the will of the representatives of the people? You will have to sign it.

    I want you to explain to me what is the level of your friendship with Mr Ganley from Ireland. How can you meet a person whose funding is unclear? You are not supposed to meet him in your function. It is a man whose finances come from problematic sources and he wants to use them to be funding his election campaign into the EP.

    President Vaclav Klaus: I must say that nobody has talked to me in such a style and tone for the past 6 years. You are not on the barricades in Paris here. I thought that these manners ended for us 18 years ago but I see I was wrong. I would not dare to ask how the activities of the Greens are funded. If you are concerned about a rational discussion in this half an hour, which we have, please give the floor to someone else, Mr Chairman.

Hans-Gert_Poettering_%282007%29    EU Parliament President Hans-Gert Pöttering: No, we have plenty of time. My colleague will continue, because anyone from the members of the EP can ask you whatever he likes. (to Cohn-Bendit:) Please continue.

    President Vaclav Klaus: This is incredible. I have never experienced anything like this before.

    Daniel Cohn-Bendit: Because you have not experienced me..

    Pesident Vaclav Klaus: This is incredible.

    Daniel Cohn-Bendit: We have always had good talks with President Havel. And what will you tell me about your attitude towards the anti-discrimination law? I will gladly inform you about our funding.

    Hans-Gert Pöttering: Brian Crowley, please.

    Brian Crowley MEP: I am from Ireland and I am a member of a party in government. All his life my father fought against the British domination. Many of my relatives lost their lives. That is why I dare to say that the Irish wish for the Lisbon Treaty. It was an insult, Mr. President, to me and to the Irish people what you said during your state visit to Ireland. It was an insult that you met Declan Ganley, a man with no elected mandate. This man has not proven the sources from which his campaign was funded. I just want to inform you what the Irish felt. I wish you that you get the programme of your Presidency through and you will get through what European citizens want to see.

    President Vaclav Klaus: Thank you for this experience which I gained from this meeting. I did not think anything like this is possible and have not experienced anything like this for the past 19 years. I thought it was a matter of the past that we live in democracy, but it is post-democracy, really, which rules the EU.

    You mentioned the European values. The most important value is freedom and democracy. The citizens of the EU member states are concerned about freedom and democracy, above all. But democracy and freedom are losing ground in the EU today. It is necessary to strive for them and fight for them.

    I would like to emphasize, above all, what most citizens of the Czech Republic feel, that for us the EU membership has no alternative. It was me who submitted the EU application in the year 1996 and who signed the Accession treaty in 2003. But the arrangements within the EU have many alternatives. To take one of them as sacrosanct, untouchable, about which it is not possible to doubt or criticize it, is against the very nature of Europe.

    As for the Lisbon Treaty, I would like to mention that it is not ratified in Germany either. The Constitutional Treaty, which was basically the same as the Lisbon Treaty, was refused in referendums in other two countries. If Mr. Crowley speaks of an insult to the Irish people, then I must say that the biggest insult to the Irish people is not to accept the result of the Irish referendum. In Ireland I met somebody who represents a majority in his country. You, Mr. Crowley, represent a view which is in minority in Ireland. That is a tangible result of the referendum.

    Brian Crowley MEP: With all respect, Mr. President, you will not tell me what the Irish think. As an Irishman, I know it best.

    President Vaclav Klaus: I do not speculate about what the Irish think. I state the only measurable data which were proved by the referendum.

    In our country the Lisbon Treaty is not ratified because our parliament has not decided on it yet. It is not the President's fault. Let's wait for the decision of both Chambers of the Parliament, that is the current phase of the ratification process in which the President plays no role whatsoever. I cannot sign the Treaty today, it is not on my table, it is up to the parliament to decide about it now. My role will come after the eventual approval of the Treaty in the Parliament. . .


[11]     Hans-Gert Pöttering: … In the conclusion - and I want to leave this room in good terms - I would like to say that it is more than unacceptable, if you compare us, compare us with the Soviet Union. We are all deeply rooted in our countries and our constituencies. We are concerned about freedom and reconciliation in Europe, we are good willing, not naïve.

    President Vaclav Klaus: I did not compare you with the Soviet Union, I did not mention the word[s] "Soviet Union". I only said that I have not experienced such an atmosphere, such style of debate in the past 19 years in the Czech Republic.

Incredible, indeed! [12] Cohn-Bendit is a Jew and behaves in the same manner as one of the worst executioners of  Jews – Roland Freisler. Is it really so that victims become tyrants to bully executioners and non-executioners alike - dependent on circumstances? Does mankind never learn from the experiences of the past – do they inevitably always seek dictatorship? Does mankind not have any morals? Does truth no longer matter? And what about democracy? Is that also just an empty phrase to corrupt the masses by an arrogant, self-appointed master class?
It seems so, indeed. In that case, I cannot deplore the possibly final tribulation for mankind recently predicted by coming US vice-president [13] Joe Biden and Colin Powell.
