Germany: Lawmakers want three-year prison terms for burning EU Flag.
Germany: Lawmakers want three-year prison terms for burning EU Flag “to take firm and effective action against those whose aim is to disparage the fundamental values of the European Union” by attacking “the reputation of the symbols of the EU”.
The “reputation” of the EU? Germany has already done enough to damage that. One can only wonder Germany’s response if it is a protected “refugee” who burns the EU flag?
– Proponents claim it is “a commandment of self-esteem” that Germany, as a founder member-state of the EU, “protects [it] against malicious contempt”.
Meanwhile, France and its globalist President are seeking to make the display of the EU flag compulsory in all school classrooms, state and private, earlier in 2019.
The law would also protect Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, which has been appropriated as the EU anthem.
Poor Beethoven…associated with the EU. Anyhow, how does one burn an anthem? 🤔
