When you oppose the globalists, they stop at nothing to destroy you.
In an extraordinary speech the EU Commission president said he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest of America if the Republican president does not change his tune and become more supportive of the EU.
The remarks are diplomatic dynamite at a time when relations between Washington and Brussels are already strained over Europe’s meagre contributions to NATO and the US leader’s open preference for dealing with national governments.
A spokesman for the bloc later said that the remarks were not meant to be taken literally, but also tellingly did not try to pass them off as humorous and insisted the EU chief was making a serious comparison.
They are by far the most outspoken intervention any senior EU figure has made about Mr Trump and are likely to dismay some European leaders who were hoping to seek a policy of rapprochement with their most important ally.
Speaking at the centre-right European People Party’s (EPP) annual conference in Malta yesterday afternoon, the EU Commission boss did not hold back in his disdain for the White House chief’s eurosceptic views.
He said: “Brexit isn’t the end. A lot of people would like it that way, even people on another continent where the newly elected US President was happy that the Brexit was taking place and has asked other countries to do the same.
“If he goes on like that I am going to promote the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas in the US.”
Mr Juncker’s comments did not appear to be made in jest and were delivered in a serious tone, although one journalist did report some “chuckles” in the audience and hinted the EU boss may have been joking. The remarks came in the middle of an angry speech in which the top eurocrat railed widely against critics of the EU Commission.
This threat isn’t a small one. And as much as the EU Commission President wishes he could pawn it off as some joke, it isn’t one. America is more divided now than it has been in decades. If not since the Civil War. Half the country believes God-Emperor isn’t a legitimate president and have been lead to think that Russia interfered in our election process. California consistently talks of seceding (which I’m actually not against), and riots broke out all over the country following the inauguration.
When you go against the EU globalists, they threaten to tear your playhouse apart. Or worse, set it on fire. If this isn’t a sign that the EU needs to be dissolved entirely, nothing will be.
