This was an item from the summer, circulated by Liz, which I’d meant to briefly dissect:

Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke gives Nazi salute and shouts facist slogan in EU parliament (International Business Times, July 10)

Right-wing Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke stunned fellow members in the European parliament when he rose to his feet during a debate on transport and gave a Nazi salute.

“Ein Volk, ein reich [one people, one empire],” Korwin-Mikke proclaimed as the parliament debated a German motion to standardise bus and train tickets across the EU.

The slogan was one of the most repeated phrases in Nazi Germany and was usually followed by “ein Führer,” (one leader), a reference to Adolf Hitler. Korwin-Mikke had meant to mock the standardisation which he said was a blow to European diversity. However his point was somewhat overshadowed by the display.

In the past Korwin-Mikke, who is fiercely pro-Putin, has decried the EU as a “communist project” and said the European Commission building would be better used if it was turned into a brothel. [Agreed.]

He has also not hidden his contempt for democracy and said he had sought political position for diplomatic immunity, a large pay cheque and an office in the European parliament. [The first honest MEP?]

In the past Korwin-Mikke, who has been an MEP since July 2014, has also used the n-word in parliament, said women had evolved to be less intelligent than men, and socialist[s] were more stupid than monkeys.

Well who ever said monkeys were stupid? Socialists, on the other hand…

OK, so his woman and n-word comments notwithstanding, it’s too bad he wasn’t yet an MEP in July 2013, or he might have offered the same display in honor of Croatia’s entry into the EU, which official Poland was a little too happy about.

Some interesting things about the July item:

1. The fact that there is at least one MEP who admits the EU project is Hitler’s dream come true while also being blatantly commie in nature. (As we know, the two rivals — fascim and communism — have always dovetailed, ergo the initial alliance between them.)

2. The fact that this is a wayward Pole. While Poland is being used as a tool against Russia, he is pro-Russian. He is also anti-communist. Which lays bare Zbigniew Brzezinski, the reputed and professed “anti-communist-slash-anti-Soviet” who turned out to be, simply, anti-Russian-slash-anti-Orthodox. How else does one explain our continuing Russia-loathing policies (under his eternal tutelage) even as Russia’s leader criticizes Soviet policies, and as we take the USSR’s place behaviorally? Mind you, this Pole is anti-communist and pro-Putin while also being anti-fascist. Whereas Washington and “the Allies” lacked the imagination to figure out how to be against one without being for the other. Even after that WWII Serbian guerrilla general showed them how it was done, the one we forsook in favor of communism — Mihailovic.

Poland was billed throughout the 1980s as anti-communist, and yet it has again taken center stage in the U.S. war against a non-communist Russia. So the “anti-communism” ran a bit deeper than that, as embodied in Brzezinski. Korwin-Mikke is the consistent Pole, someone who really does hate communism per se, rather than using it as camouflage for hatred of Russia. Unlike all the Western pretenders, who are just building a more expansive, commie-hued totalitarian empire, and resent Russia for standing in the way.

I’m also glad to be reminded of the “ein Fuehrer”reference, because it evokes yet another parallel with the most prominent current fascism we face, the Islamic one: Similar to “one leader,” I’m referring to that ubiquitous Muslim index finger in the air meaning “one god,” theirs.
