…those who support and defend the European Union are supporting the Nazi legacy”

More False News - or the Truth?

Recently, a British member of the European parliament stated that “Nazi Germany left us a legacy. It was called the European Economic Community.”

6th July 2018

“UKIP leader Gerard Batten has sparked controversy by claiming that the EU is based on a Nazi plan to rule the continent if they had won World War Two. The London MEP said the European Economic Community, which Britain joined in 1973 and later became the EU, was a “Nazi legacy” that inspired current policies like farming subsidies. Batten made the comments at the European Parliament in Strasbourg during a debate on the future of Europe with Poland’s Prime Minister.

He said: ‘The Germans lost the shooting war but they did not lose their ambitions. Nazi Germany left us a legacy. It was called the European Economic Community’ [Europaische Wirtschafts Gemeinschaft].

‘They were going to have interest rates linked to the Reichsmark, they were going to have a common agricultural policy, a common industrial policy, a common policy for everything. That plan resurfaced in 1957 as the European Economic Community.’ Batten was heckled by other MEPs in the chamber as he made the remarks.( uk.finance.yahoo.com)

Another Conspiracy Theory?

This idea that the EU is a Nazi legacy is mocked by many - however the facts do point strongly in that direction, as the following article points out:

17th April 2014

The ‘fascist’ EU was inspired and designed by the NAZIS and is proof Hitler won the Second World War, an outrageous new book is claiming. ‘The EU: The Truth About The Fourth Reich - How Hitler Won The Second World War’ argues the single currency, the free market and even the phrase ‘United States of Europe’ were all dreamt up by high ranking Nazis, including the Fuhrer himself. It also claims the only country which benefits from the EU is Germany - just as Hitler planned. The book, co-written by Daniel J Beddowes and Falvio Cipollini, says: ‘What is the EU for? Who really benefits? And the answer is of course Germany. It is no coincidence that just about every country in the European Union is getting poorer while Germany continues to get richer and richer. We may think we won the Second World War. But we lost. It is no surprise that we are all living in the Fourth Reich. Knowingly or not those who support and defend the European Union are supporting the Nazi legacy.’It continues: ‘The Nazis wanted to get rid of the clutter of small nations which made up Europe and their plan was quite simple. The EU was Hitler’s dream.’ The book argues it is no coincidence that the EU is so close to Hitler’s plan for post-war Europe.

The book also claims Conservative Prime Minister Ted Heath - ‘a self-confessed liar and a traitor’ - was paid £35,000 to take Britain into the European Economic Community in 1973 and Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels would be proud of the BBC’s support of the EU.

It is not the first time the EU has been described as a German plot to take over Europe.

In 1990, Cabinet Minister Nicholas Ridley - a close ally of Margaret Thatcher - was forced to resign after he described proposed Economic and Monetary Union as ‘a German racket designed to take over the whole of Europe’ and said that giving up sovereignty to the European Union was as bad as giving it up to Hitler.” ( express.co.uk)

Hitler Wanted A Powerful European Superstate

Speaking two years ago, British MP Boris Johnson had this to say about about the EU:

15th May 2016

The European Union is pursuing a similar goal to Hitler in trying to create a powerful superstate, Boris Johnson says.

In a dramatic interview with the Telegraph, he warns that while bureaucrats in Brussels are using ‘different methods’ from the Nazi dictator, they share the aim of unifying Europe under one ‘authority’.

The former mayor of London, who is a keen classical scholar, argues that the past 2,000 years of European history have been characterised by repeated attempts to unify Europe under a single government in order to recover the continent’s lost ‘golden age’ under the Romans.

‘Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically,’ he says. ‘The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods.’

‘But fundamentally what is lacking is the eternal problem, which is that there is no underlying loyalty to the idea of Europe. There is no single authority that anybody respects or understands. That is causing this massive democratic void.’

Mr Johnson’s potentially inflammatory comparison to Hitler comes at a critical time in the referendum campaign, with senior Tories on either side publicly attacking each other in blunt terms.” ( telegraph.co.uk)

16th May 2016

“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 eurosceptic MEP added that the first president of the European Commission [Walter Hallstein] had been ‘a member of several nominally Nazi professional organizations’ and served in Adolf Hitler’s army.

‘In 1942 when the Germans still thought they were going to win the war they produced a report entitled the Europaische Wirtschafts Gemeinschaft – which translates as the European Economic Community,’ he wrote in a post on his blog.

‘This report was written by various bankers and academics and laid out a plan for how Germany would manage the economies of the conquered countries of Europe after a German victory. The report was drawn up under the leadership of Professor Walter Funk the Reich’s Economics Minister and President of the Reichsbank.’

‘The report contained sections on Agriculture, Industry, Employment, Transport, Trade, Economic Agreements, and Currency. It proposed the “harmonisation” of European currencies and a harmonised currency system.

‘If this all sounds all very familiar it is because the basic plan for the European Economic Community of 1942 was very similar to the actual European Economic Community that came into existence in 1957 under the Treaty of Rome.’

Concluding, he said: ‘What emerged as the European Economic Community in 1957 was planned and created by the kind of people who would have run Europe’s economies if Germany had won the war, and their plans followed a very similar pattern’.” ( independent.co.uk)

The EU’s Architects: Nazis And Nazi Collaborators

“What eventually became the EU, the European Coal and Steel Community, was formed by six Western European countries in 1951. The organization was the brainchild of Robert Schuman, a French politician who swore allegiance to Marshal Philippe Petain, the French Vichy leader and ally of the mustachioed German ex-corporal [Adolf Hitler]. Schuman was later stripped of his political rights for his collaboration with the hated German bosche.

However, Free French commander, General Charles De Gaulle, restored Schuman’s full citizenship, after which the old Vichy collaborator set about to create a modified version of the Third Reich, the European Union. And to complement his Fourth Reich-Lite, Schuman advocated a military alliance to give it muscle. It was the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) .

Schuman served as a post-war French foreign and prime minister. Schuman’s collaborators in his plan to create a federal Europe were fellow Frenchman and OSS/CIA asset Jean Monnet and German chancellor Konrad Adenauer, who, as pre-war mayor of Cologne and president of the Prussian State Council, provided the Nazis with various perks, including the right to fly Nazi flags from Cologne city flagpoles.

Another founding father of the EU was Walter Hallstein, a German lawyer who belonged to a number of Nazi professional groups and who fought as a lieutenant in a Wehrmacht artillery regiment in northern France, Hallstein was captured by the Americans and served out the remaining war in a prisoner-of-war camp in Mississippi. Western history books and the always-dubious Wikipedia, have whitewashed the Nazi credentials of EU founders like Schuman, Adenauer, and Hallstein .

Another supporter of the embryonic supporter of a federal Europe in the early 1950s was Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld in Germany and later of the Netherlands. Before marrying Crown Princess Juliana of the Netherlands, Bernhard was a Nazi Party member in Germany and an officer of the Reiter (Mounted Corps) of the SS. He was also a member of the Nazi Motor Corps. In 1940, Bernhard’s old pals at IG Farben, the German petro-chemical company, along with SS chief Heinrich Himmler, were lobbying Hitler for a common European currency, the precursor of today’s euro.

After the war, Bernhard enthusiastically supported the creation of a European Union. To shepherd plans for the future union through European nations, in 1954, Bernhard sponsored the first meeting of European federalists and their Euro-Atlanticist NATO allies at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands.

The annual Bilderberg conference has, since 1954, promoted a federal Europe and more general globalization. However, like Adolf Hitler’s plans for a united Europe and a world under Axis domination, the Bilderberg plans and those of their EU colleagues come at the expense of national sovereignty, cultural rights, freedom of expression and freedom of thought, and workers’ rights.” ( strategic-culture.org)

Nazis In The Post War German Government

“Bundestag document 17/8134 officially announced, for the first time, something which had been treated as a taboo in the halls of government for decades: A total of 25 cabinet ministers, one president and one chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany - as postwar Germany is officially known - had been members of Nazi organizations.” ( spiegel.de)

Summary
  • Nazi Germany left us a legacy. It was called the European economic community.”
  • The ‘fascist’ EU was inspired and designed by the NAZIS and is proof Hitler won the Second World War.”
  • “What is the EU for? Who really benefits? And the answer is of course Germany.”
  • …about every country in the European Union is getting poorer while Germany continues to get richer and richer.”
  • “Knowingly or not those who support and defend the European Union are supporting the Nazi legacy.”
  • “The Nazis wanted to get rid of the clutter of small nations which made up Europe and their plan was quite simple. The EU was Hitler’s dream.”
  • Nicholas Ridley MP: “ …described proposed Economic and Monetary Union as ‘a German racket designed to take over the whole of Europe ’.”
  • The organization was the brainchild of Robert Schuman, a French politician who swore allegiance to Marshal Philippe Petain, the French Vichy leader…”
  • Walter Hallstein, a German lawyer who belonged to a number of Nazi professional groups…”
  • Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld was a Nazi Party member in Germany and an officer of the Reiter (Mounted Corps) of the SS.”
  • After the war, Bernhard enthusiastically supported the creation of a European Union.”
  • In 1954, Bernhard sponsored the first meeting of European federalists and their Euro-Atlanticist NATO allies at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands.”
  • A total of 25 cabinet ministers, one president and one chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany - as postwar Germany is officially known - had been members of Nazi organizations.”

It seems that there is little doubt that… “Nazi Germany did leave us a legacy. It is called the European economic community.”

The Annual Bilderberg Conference

Prince Bernhard sponsored the first meeting of European federalists and their Euro-Atlanticist NATO allies at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands .” Thus began the annual secretive meeting by the “great” of this world. The EU follows the same pattern. It calls itself “democratic”, but the top people who really make the decisions are not elected by the people. The EU is democratic in name only, it is really a dictatorship!

9th May 2009

An article in the Daily Mail exposed the links between Nazi Germany and the EU. Here is the conclusion of that article:

“…the German economic miracle – so vital to the idea of a new Europe - was built on mass murder. The number of slave and forced labourers who died while employed by German companies in the Nazi era was 2,700,000.

Europe now enjoys peace and stability. Germany is a democracy, once again home to a substantial Jewish community. The Holocaust is seared into national memory.

Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda chief, once said: ‘In 50 years’ time nobody will think of nation states.’ For now, the nation state endures. But… today’s drive towards a European federal state is inexorably tangled up with the plans of the SS and German industrialists for a Fourth Reich - an economic rather than military imperium.( dailymail.co.uk)

November, 1949

Almost 70 years ago, Plain Truth readers already understood the situation. What follows is part of a Plain Truth article written by Mr Herbert Armstrong entitled “ Under Cover IN EUROPE” in November, 1949.

In the middle of May, 1943, top German industrialists held an important secret meeting. They assembled at Chateau Huegel, suburb of Essen, residence of the Krupps, head of the giant Krupps war munitions plants. Present were Krupp von Bohlen-Halbach, the Krupps works head, Baron Georg von Schnitzler, chairman of the board of world-famous IG Farben works, Otto Pietzch, owner of Germany’s largest machine factory, Herr Hallersleben, president of the Vereinigte Kugellagerfabriken, Dr Otto Fischer, chief of the Reichskreditanstalt, Herr von Schroeder, and others.

Here plans were laid for divorcing German industry, so far as the facts appeared before the outside world, from Nazism.

It would be much easier for them to keep German industry free to prepare for World War III if they convinced the allied nations that the Nazis did not run it.

They well knew that German industry is the economic heart of all Europe. The other nations in Europe simply cannot function economically without German industry and German commerce any more than a human body can keep alive without a beating heart.

These industrialists understood fully that, after the war, the other nations of Europe could not keep alive economically without German industry. They knew America and Britain would be faced with the problem of keeping Europe alive. They foresaw the threat of Communism if Europe were plunged into economic chaos and faced starvation. They well realized that for these reasons Washington and London would wish to set German industry going ahead full blast — if they could be fooled into thinking the Nazis no longer were connected with it!

At this meeting in the Krupps chateau, plans for making it appear the Nazis were entirely disconnected with the source of arms production for the next war were carefully laid.” ( The Plain Truth - November, 1949)

September 1968

In The Plain Truth, September 1968, an article entitled “Is the United States of Europe Coming Soon?” predicted:

“To find Europe becoming a totally integrated political power; to find Eastern European nations emerging in full industrial, economic, and eventual political union would be met with shouts of joy and exuberance in Western Europe. It would mean an end to the hated wall — an end of a tense, seemingly endless Cold War. and an end to [then] Walter Ulbricht’s Communist regime in East Germany.” ( The Plain Truth - September, 1968)

Twenty One Years Later…

“The Wall” came down in November 1989. Germany re-united in October 1990. Today, the “Cold War” is long gone.

The Eastern European nations are now part of the EU. Walter Ulbricht’s Communist regime is consigned to history and Europe is fast becoming a totally integrated political power (through the signing of the Lisbon Treaty).

But Europe Is Unstable…

This budding United States of Europe is not a stable mix of nations - the Bible tells us that it’s a mixture of “iron and clay”.

And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.(fragile)

And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.(Daniel 2:42-43)

Coming Soon – Major Changes In Europe

When the end time crisis comes, only 10 nations or national groups now in the EU “ give their power to the Beast”. The others, including Britain, do not join the “Beast power”.

Mr Armstrong wrote in ‘The United States and Britain in Prophecy’:

“God will use a Nazi-Fascist Europe to punish Britain-America. Then He will use the Communist hordes to wipe out the Roman Europe. We are entering a time of world trouble - utter WORLD chaos!” ( The US and GB in Prophecy - Chapter 14)

“So now, if twentieth-century Ephraim and Manasseh - Britain and America - refuse to turn to God in obedience - refuse to live the way that causes, retains, and increases blessings, God will punish them in a manner far more INTENSE - and even strip entirely from them this colossal, unprecedented national blessing - returning them to captivity and slavery - as continuing verses of this prophecy show.

Do you think so great a fall could not come to so great powers as Britain and America? Do you say, ‘It can’t happen HERE?’ Do you think the GREAT GOD who was able to GIVE them such unprecedented world leadership and power and wealth is not able to take it away from them and throw them, like their ancient forefathers, back into SLAVERY?

You need to OPEN YOUR EYES to the fact that Britain’s sun already has SET! You need to WAKE UP to the fact that the United States, even still possessing unmatched POWER, is afraid - fears - to use it, just as God said: ‘I will break the PRIDE of your POWER’; that the United States has stopped winning wars - that America was unable, with all its vast power, to conquer little North Vietnam!

The United States is fast riding to the GREATEST FALL that ever befell any nation!

The handwriting is on the wall!” ( The US and GB in Prophecy - Chapter 13)
