European Commission Unwittingly Echoes ‘1984’ Slogan In Controversial Tweet

The EU Commission is taking some heat on Twitter after its account tweeted a message that some blasted for perhaps unwittingly echoing “Orwellian” themes from George Orwell’s seminal novel 1984.

Urging Europeans to get out and vote during the upcoming European Parliamentary elections, which begin in a week, the Commission’s tweet read: “The EU is peace. The EU is freedom. The EU is solidarity. The EU is diversity. The EU is human rights. The EU is opportunities. Vote.”

Some observers noted that the “creepy” tweet and the slogan it bore resembled the three slogans of ‘the party’ of Big Brother in 1984: “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” The fact that all of the European Commission’s 28 members aren’t elected might have strengthened the association for some, especially since the tweet didn’t include ‘democracy’ among its ‘virtues’.

Others pointed out that the tweet’s author may not have noticed the connotations of the tweet.

The Commission is responsible for proposing legislation, implementing policy, enforcing compliance with treaties, and representing the union in trade talks. It has more power than any other European body, and it’s totally unelected, with members sworn to protect the interests of Europe as a whole, not their home countries.

If populist parties in the UK, France and Italy make sizable gains in the upcoming vote, they could challenge the globalist’s hold on the European Parliament.

  1. It wasn’t coincidence. 1984 is here. Resist. Rise up. Defeat them.

    My first question for chest-thumping ‘patriots’ is, ‘Are your children home-schooled or government-schooled?’

  3. Wojo says:

    No worries… just added 14 more hi-cap mags to the bunker. All is well!

  4. Rock Roller says:

    Whats scary is that most people are so dumbed down, catch phrases and slogans actually seem to work programming them. After all, in the end, Winston loved Big Brother.
