HERE is a famous often-used quote, “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
TORY MEP LEADER TELLS GERMAN SOCIALIST MEP THAT NAZIS ‘WANT THE SAME THINGS AS YOU’
MEP Syed Kamall, the leader of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR), said Nazis subscribed to a “left-wing ideology” and “want the same things” as Socialists do.
His lack of history and education gives a whole new dimension to why we need better education and more so better politicians.
Members of European Parliament in Strasbourg reacted with rage after Kamall,response to an earlier speech by German MEP Udo Bullmann, the leader of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, during which he said that “right-wing nationalism and extremists” are “undermining the European Union.”
Kamall told Bullmann: “When you talk about right-wing extremists, we have to remember that Nazis were national socialists. It’s a strain of socialism.”
He then added: “It’s a left-wing ideology, they want the same things as you, let’s be quite clear.” When the chamber erupted in outrage, with some MEPs shouting out “rubbish,” Kamall said: “You don’t like the truth, do you?”
Bullmann condemned Kamall’s statement, telling the Tory that it was “an awful thing to say.”
