The European Parliament calls on its Member States to ban neo-fascist and neo-Nazi groups, as well as “any foundation or association that exalts and glorifies Nazism and fascism”, according to a resolution adopted today.
As stated in the European Parliament, the measure aims to “tackle” the “growing normalization” of racism, xenophobia, fascism and other forms of “intolerance” in the European Union.
MEPs consider that the absence of concrete action against neo-fascist and neo-Nazi groups has allowed the emergence of the current “xenophobic” current in Europe.
In this resolution, approved in Strasbourg with 355 votes in favor, 90 against and 39 abstentions, the “European” Parliament expresses its deep concern at the “impunity enjoyed by neo-fascist and neo-Nazi groups operating in some Member States”, calling the “disturbances” reports of collusion of political leaders, political parties and police forces with neo-fascists and neo-Nazis in some European countries.
The creation of units to combat hate crimes in the police forces is another measure recommended by the EP, with MEPs arguing that the police should ensure that members of its staff do not participate in racist, xenophobic or discriminatory acts and that such acts must be subject of investigation and that the perpetrators are brought to justice.
Specific “minorities” such as “Black Europeans, people of African origin, Jews, Muslims, gypsies, third world inhabiting in Europe, LGBTI people and people with disabilities” are the most martyred by neofascist violence, the resolution notes.
The European Assembly also urges EU countries to categorically condemn and punish hate crimes, hate speech and to search for scapegoats, more specifically, “politicians and civil servants”, since they normalize and directly feed hatred and violence in society.
MEPs also encourages the Commission, the Member States and companies that operate social media networks to prevent the spread of these phenomena on the Internet.
The EP calls for a “common culture of memory that rejects the fascist crimes of the past”, expressing concern that in Europe and elsewhere, the younger generations are showing less and less interest in the history of fascism, thus running the risk of becoming indifferent to new “threats”.
In addition, MEPs consider that national sports federations, in particular, football clubs, must also combat the scourge of racism, fascism, and xenophobia in sporting stages and culture, condemning and punishing those responsible for such “atrocities”, and must promote “positive educational activities” for young people in cooperation with schools and civil society organizations.
Does this comprove, some allegations made by political scientists, that we live under the biggest and most horrible authoritarian system of all time, that deceives society to think that we live in a democracy and in a “free” world?
“It is important to remember that what underlies this appeal, is actually the gagging of freedom of thought and expression. We are faced with the deformed face of the globalist and plutocratic tyranny that seeks to impose on us a unique thought. For the EU, “neo-fascism” and “neo-Nazism” are all those, that could contradict the EU policies of Brussels and its “masters”.
It is true that violence exists. But it is also true that it is practiced every day, against the Europeans.” expresses, a friend of mine.
Thankfully, Europe is changing! I am not witnessing the perfect transformation, according to my ideals, but a Europe of Orban and Salvini rather than a Europe of Juncker, Macron, and Merkel is preferable.
In my opinion, I think that the content in school books should begin to change, in what regards the definition of the European Union, since, with this appeal, it is necessary to think twice before writing that the EU is an institution that aims to promote freedom of expression and the right of individuals to free thought …
Or does democracy only serves the interests of some?
