Skip to comments.EU winning Nobel Peace Prize is beyond parody.....

Has the committee which runs the Nobel Peace Prize been infiltrated by satirists or opponents keen on discrediting the organisation? Norwegian radio reports this morning, carried by Reuters, suggested that the European Union is to be awarded the prize for supposedly keeping the peace in Europe for the last sixty years. Was this a Nordic spoof? Apparently not.
It is only a few years since President Obama was ludicrously awarded the Nobel peace prize for winning the 2008 election and not being George Bush. Since then Mr Obama has continued the war in Afghanistan, stepped up drone attacks and got America involved in Libya's bloody revolution, suggesting that it is better to hand out baubles after someone has finished their job rather than when they are just getting started or are half way through. Incidentally, the same stricture should have applied to bankers honoured by New Labour when they were still running banks which later blew up....

My current totally series theory is that the Nobel Peace Prize committee is just testing the waters with dumber and dumber winners to see if it can eventually just give the award to itself each year ;)
Obama was on his European acceptance tour when he quietly launched cruise missiles into Yemen.
They’ve been pranking us all for years
If you want to award the “peace prize” to someone who kept the peace in Europe for 60 years - then the award should go the United States.
The USA kept the Soviets at bay, and they underwrote the defense of Europe which allowed the UK, Germany and France to not compete with each other.
The Nobel Committee has become a JOKE.
The old peace prize she ain’t what she used to be.
I think FReepers should get together and nominate me for preventing the invasion of earth by aliens from Alpha Centauri.
BTW you’re welcome.
Hey, wait a minute...
I think Greece should get the Nobel Prize - for outstanding economic performance. I mean, if you are going to make a sick joke, why not go for it?
Par for the course. Between bowing down to Islamic crazies desiring our destruction, socialism funded by rampant printing presses while countries are buried in debt, the cultural suicide of allowing open-borders for generations, and the sick depths of modern pop-culture celebrating perversion and depravity... the whole Western world has turned itself into a rather twisted farce.
And farcical it is, the EU winning a “Nobel Peace Prize!” It’s like something right out of the Marx Brothers’ “Duck Soup” (1933).
The Reason the EU Won The Nobel Peace Prize.
Here is a list of the other nominees, in no particular order.
1) Lady Gaga
2) Julian Assange (because of the Swedish rape charges)
3) Bashar al-Assad
4) Barack Hussein Obamas Dentists Mother, Murgatroyd Hfuhruhurr.
5) Snoop Dogg, and his All-Ho Orchestra
6) The author of 50 Shades of Gray
7) Surströmming (fermented Baltic herring)
8) The Greek Economy
I for one want to welcome our new Centaurian insect overlords.
I'm just assuming that since you expect a Nobel Prize, you didn't actually succeed in stopping the invasion. You just intended to.
How timely that Europe gives itself the Nobel Peace Prize.
The EU/Europe needed the million dollars. Perfect example of Peter borrowing from Paul to pay Peter . . . . . .
Actually, Obama getting the Nobel was beyond parody. Europe is just par for the course. Europe gets credit for Democracies cropping up. The U. S. who sent it’s sons to die over there, not so much.
Our troops are still in Germany, holding the line. Honorable mention? Hell no!
Obama got his Nobel for doing nothing, so why not Europe?
I’m just surprised they didn’t name the U. S. and chastise it for not living up to the same standards as Europe. I’m actually holding off on this a bit, because they may have fit it in some way.
Okay, Nords, we found you had a sense of humor when you gave it to obama. We noticed. Really. You are great jokers. You didn’t have to do it again with the EU.
The Nobel Peace Prize, also know as the Prestigious Neville Chamberlain Prize.
Nobel Peace Prize... for EU bailouts (big govt intervention)?
That’s equivalent to the DemocRat Party’s proud 2012 slogan “We ‘saved’ (stole from taxpayers to bail-out) GM.”
Both are violent, SOCIALIST acts. You can’t make this stuff up!
Nobel ‘Peace’ prize, where peace = theft of tax dollars.....
Exactly what I was thinking. It was the United States Army that kept the peace in Europe after WW2.
