So alluding to a fascistic-like EU hack being a fascist, is a punishable offense, giving the offending politicians the boot from the faux parliament of the EU. How fascist. KGS
British MEP kicked out of parliament after ‘Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer’ jibe at German colleague
A sober debate about Ireland and the euro crisis degenerated into Nazi slurs in the EU parliament today after a UKIP member was ejected for screaming at a German MEP: ‘Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer!’
The phrase – meaning one people, one empire, one leader – was a popular slogan for supporters of the Nazi party in wartime.
Lawmakers were left speechless after the rant by Godfrey Bloom, the UKIP member for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, at German MEP Martin Schulz.
It is not the first time Mr Schulz has been at the centre of controversy after Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said he was ‘perfect’ for the role of a concentration camp guard when the pair clashed in the debating chamber in 2003.
Mr Bloom’s outburst, which also mentioned Spitfires and goose-stepping Nazis, came as Mr Schulz called for greater solidarity within Europe to deal with the Irish crisis.
‘He just said “ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer”, that’s what I just heard,’ Mr Schulz told the 736-member parliament in Strasbourg.
There was a moment of stunned silence before MEPs began chanting in unison: ‘Out, out, out…’
Parliament president Jerzy Buzek demanded Mr Bloom apologise, but the Euro-sceptic MEP was unrepentant.
‘The views express by “Herr” Schulz make the case. He is an undemocratic fascist,’ he told the parliament, before Mr Buzek ordered him thrown out of the chamber.
