Germany To Criminalize Burning of European Union Flag

The German parliament advanced legislation that would criminalize the burning of the European Union flag on Thursday, recognizing the flag of the globalist political union on a level akin to that of a national flag.

The burning of the entity’s flag has become increasingly popular during euroskeptic protests in Germany and in other European counties, and German legislators expressed their desire to afford the EU flag the same protections that the German flag already has in the country.

We will not allow these symbolic acts of hatred and contempt to continue,” said Justice Minister Christian Lange of the Social Democratic Party. The law banning the burning of the EU flag is largely supported by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union.

Populists and euroskeptics denounced the enshrining of the globalist political union’s symbol as a sacred flag akin to that of a country.

The populist nationalist Alternative for Germany is one of the few parties with a presence in the German parliament that is declining to support the bill. “The EU is not a state,” said AfD representative Bernd Baumann. “Therefore their symbol should not have the same rules attached to it.

In the aftermath of the United Kingdom’s departure from the globalist political union, the entity’s neoliberal supporters and powerful Brussels bureaucrats seem just as intent in forcibly empowering the undemocratic entity above and beyond national governments. It’s not entirely impossible that outright criticism of the EU will soon be criminalized in fashion similar to the destruction of its ‘flag.’
