The supposed 'tolerant' liberal P.C. brigade lynch mob are at it again, all over Boris Johnson like a rash for daring to voice a point of view they don't agree with and subsequently think you can't say.
Except, err... well you can say it actually, sorry.
The fact he's correct and is merely stating a historical fact, is irrelevant to these zealots of course.
Now we don't particularly like Boris, not least as he's just another wealthy Tory toff, but we have to say well done for his comments about Hitler, in relation to the E.E.C., not only for having the integrity to speak his mind, but because it's true.
How anyone can seriously think or indeed pretend that the thought and realization of the parallel between the E.E.C. and Hitler has never entered or crossed anyone's mind before, is beyond belief.
The irony is plain for all to see.
We've mentioned it before, for a start. (See Blog, Another myth propagated by the pro-European liberal elite 5/2/16.)
Hitler did want a united, state of Europe.
What on earth is wrong with saying that, for crying out loud?
Forget the guff about it being offensive, it's true; historical fact.
Quite frankly if you find that offensive, then I'd question whether you are one of those professional offence takers or there's simply something wrong with you.
As Boris said, the only difference is the means to the end.
Hitler tried to do it by force, the E.E.C. is doing it by subterfuge and stealth.
But it's what Hitler wanted and indeed no doubt he would be proud of the unelected dictators who are in control now.
Back to school all you liberal P.C. zealots and learn your history; you can't change that, although we know you do-gooder apologists are always trying to rewrite it with your politically correct, non-gender specific, non-discriminatory, 'multicultural' equality and 'diversity', discrimination drivel.
We like David 'call me Dave' Cameron even less, however it's a similar situation when he said Nigeria was one of the most corrupt countries in the world which allegedly caused uproar.
State a fact and you're slated.
Nigeria is one of the most corrupt countries in the world, fact. Check it out for yourself in any one of the numerous surveys or 'corruption index tables', found online.
Although one hardly needs written research to realize that sub-Saharan Africa is, historically, hardly a bastion of integrity and bulwark of probity, let's face it.
The only unfortunate thing for Boris is, as like many others before him (see blog, Another one for the P.C. Gestapo 22/3/16, Tyson Fury, fury 10/12/15.) who have had the audacity to speak the truth, he now has to run the gauntlet of the feigned offence and mock outrage the P.C. Gestapo and no doubt, end up apologizing, although we hope he has the courage of his conviction not to.
We said it before and we'll say it again. (See Blog, Another myth propagated by the pro-European liberal elite 5/2/16.)
All those who fought and died in the Second World War would turn in their graves if they knew what was happening to this country and Europe now, as they fought for nothing.
