Nazis created 'basic plan' for European Union,
Ukip MEP Gerard Batten says
Mr Batten made the comments after Boris Johnson invoked Hitler to criticise the EU
The Nazis drew up the “basic plan” for the European Union decades before it was actually established, a Ukip MEP has claimed.
Gerard Batten on Monday stepped up to defend Boris Johnson, who on Sunday attracted criticism for likening the EU’s aims to those of Adolf Hitler.
Mr Batten however suggested Mr Johnson had actually underplayed the connections between the EU and the Nazis, and that the bloc had “closer links” with the fascists than many realized.
The Junkers (/ˈjʊŋkər/ yuung-kər; German: [ˈjʊŋkɐ]) were the members of the landed nobility in Prussia. They owned great estates that were maintained and worked by peasants with few rights. They were an important factor in Prussian and, after 1871, German military, political and diplomatic leadership. The most famous Junker was Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.
EURO menace Jean-Claude Juncker’s dad fought for Hitler in World War Two.
And his father-in-law was a Nazi sympathiser who persecuted Jews in his home
Juncker, 59, is tipped
to be the European Commission’s new president.
But his plans for a bigger EU with less say for the UK have led to opposition
from David Cameron — and The
Sun branding him the most dangerous man in Europe.
Sources say the ex-Luxembourg PM’s demands stem from shame over his dad.
Steel worker Joseph was forced to join the German army and fight in Russia
from 1941. Juncker’s EU colleague Henri Grethen said: “The experience of his
father had a big impact. He doesn’t want the story repeated.”
Father-in-law Louis Mathias Frising — dad to Juncker’s wife of 35 years
Christiane — was a teacher in Ettelbruck, Luxembourg, when the Germans
invaded in 1940.
Frising volunteered to be a Nazi propaganda chief while banning spoken French
in favour of German.
He was also responsible for enforcing a law which stripped Jews of their
rights and professions — the first stage of the Holocaust.
After the war Frising had his teaching licence revoked and set up a DIY shop.
He had two daughters before dying aged 89 in 2004.
A neighbour said: “I knew Louis for 30 years and had no idea he was a Nazi
sympathiser. He kept that quiet because presumably it would have been
politically damaging to Jean-Claude.”
The Junckers live in a £2million mansion near Luxembourg City. His campaign
manager declined to comment.
just another snazi nazi like soros
