“These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries,” according to Juncker said, speaking from his Brussels office.
In an interview with CNN Juncker riled against the “stupid” people who value their own countries. “These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries and they don’t like the others,” Juncker told CNN.
The often-inebriated Luxembourger expressed anger at voters who do not like foreigners invading their countries: “In some countries in the European Union, some governments, some parliaments, the major part of society don’t like those coming from far away.”
The notion of “solidarity” is often invoked by Brussels in an attempt to force mass migration on member states. “I do like those coming from far away because the main guiding principle of the European Union should be solidarity.
“We have to act in solidarity with those who are in a worse situation than we are in,” he said, but gave no reason why European citizens should shoulder this particular burden of outsiders.
Juncker also praised British leader, Theresa May’s efforts during her tenure as Prime Minister. He described May as “a woman of courage,” and said he viewed her resignation “without personal joy”.
The Eurocrat’s rant comes in the wake of globalist figure in the European Parliament, Guy Verhofstadt, calling for a European “empire” to rival the United States and China.
Verhofstadt on Tuesday urged EU members to submit to globalisation saying the European Project would “die inside” if countries do not accept the dictates of Brussels.
“The world is developing into one not of nation states, but of empires. China is an empire. India is an empire. The US is an empire. We need to create a European Union that is capable of defending our interests,” the Belgian politician told CNN.
According to Verhofstadt, the question of the elections is whether “populist nationalists” including Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban can win the elections or there will be an alternative for Europe.
He stressed that Hungary’s problem is not immigration but emigration, as 500 000 young people have left the country. The street forum was disrupted by the activists of the Generation Identity, who told Verhofstadt that “our Europe is not your Union”.
The head of the European Parliament’s liberal group (ALDE) visited Budapest on Thursday to hold campaign events and press conferences with the Momentum party ahead of the European elections and held a “street forum” with Katalin Cseh, the small Hungarian liberal party’s leading candidate.
The Belgian politician attended another public event with Momentum-chairman Andras Fekete-Gyor, where he was disrupted by anti-immigration activists.
