Brussels is pouring nearly £20million a year from its human rights budget on lecturing the Americans on left-wing causes.
The EU Human Rights Fund is intended to help promote Western values in the developing world. But a shock report has found at least £17million of cash around £2million from British taxpayers has been ploughed into promoting the pet causes of Eurocrats in the U.S.
It is being spent on promoting abolition of the death penalty, discussion of climate change, green energy, and the International Criminal Court all controversial subjects in the U.S.
The study by the Heritage Foundation, a centre-right Washington think-tank, found a further £4million has been ploughed into pro-EU propaganda in the U.S., including funds for advertising and publicity material.
More than £3million has been funnelled to American universities to promote the benefits of European integration and a further £3million to think-tanks who want to study EU affairs.
The European Commissions own accounts show millions have also been paid to unnamed individual opinion formers in the U.S.

Uh, say what now?
Shouldn’t they have to register as foreign lobbyists?
In other words Brussel’s is buying the American Media?
I am increasingly wanting to go to war with the EU. It is the deepest abscess of corruption in our cultural gangrene, and they are actively seeking to destabilize multiple countries, including, it seems, ours.
Maybe that’s why we went to war with Libya?
and i sure would love to see that list of names:
