SICK. New EU Poster Puts Hammer and Sickle Above Christian Cross and Other Religious Symbols
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 1//5/13 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 01/05/2013 9:06:53 PM PST by Nachum

A new EU poster places the hammer and sickle emblem above the Christian Cross and symbols of other religions. MEP Dan Hannan is rightly angry over this atrocity at his blog:

“For three generations, the badge of the Soviet revolution meant poverty, slavery, torture and death. It adorned the caps of the chekas who came in the night. It opened and closed the propaganda films which hid the famines. It advertised the people’s courts where victims of purges and show-trials were condemned. It fluttered over the re-education camps and the gulags. For hundreds of millions of Europeans, it was a symbol of foreign occupation. Hungary, Lithuania and Moldova have banned its use, and various former communist countries want it to be treated in the same way as Nazi insignia. Yet here it sits on a poster in the European Commission, advertising the moral deafness of its author (I hope that’s what it is, rather than lingering nostalgia).”

They’re pulling off the translucent masks, eh. And the POTUS is gearing up to forge a free trade agreement with them too.

Are there even any Communist countries left in Europe? It’s incongruent to use an archaic political symbol which stood for atheism with all religious symbols. It’s senseless. What’s the star for, one of the stars in the EU symbol?

Expect someday soon Brussels to be just a smoking hole in the ground.
GOD may not be to sympathetic towards the politics of that poster.
I feel sick.

Maybe they don’t regard it as archaic. Red China certainly does not.

Slightly above the cross, looks to me. And too chummy with the hammer and sickle.

I’ve also noticed there are only 3 crosses and 3 stars of David, but at least 4 crescents, 5 hammer and sickles, etc...

Seems appropriate to me. Europe is controlled by unelected, anti-Christian, socialist statists. They’re enroute to the same destination as the USSR. They’re simply taking a different path.

Many different shaped stars were used on early versions of the U.S. flag.

In medieval heraldry, stars were represented having various numbers of arms. The arms, whether straight or wavy, represented rays of light.

But in the late 1700s, the five-pointed star was settled on, due to Masonic influence.

The five-pointed star is often associated with medieval magicians and the occult.

I suspect that the use of the five-pointed star here is also due to the influence of European Masonry, as this infamous poster promoting the European Union evinces:

There’s 3 of those in three different sizes.
I do not know what the icon signifies.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

That’s actually the Hindu Trishula. It’s a symbol of Shiva (the destroyer), so it’s appearance on that star is more than ironic.

So is this an admission that socialism functions as a religion? Liberals usually fly into a tizzy when a conservative says this, but here their beloved EU is saying it, so it must be true, right?

Re the devil’s pitchfork> Maybe Triton worshippers. Right next to Gozer worshippers.

The 5 pointed star. Who knows. Maybe a disguised Pentagon for Black magic lovers and Satan worshippers.

Could also be for Hollywood starlets.

Remember, the EU is out of its leftist mind. I’m surprised that the drawing is actually in some kind of order instead of being an LSD-influenced design.

I think that that wheel represents Buddhism, the eight fold path to enlightenment, or something along those lines.

Yes... It also bears a striking resemblance to EU headquarters in Brussels.

Below is the classic painting of the Tower of Babel.

"...What’s with the devil’s pitch fork at the lower-left point?"

It's a trident. It can be used as an occultic and Satanic symbol. Interesting position on the lower *left-hand* of the star.

Were you to flip the star upside down, it would be a pentagram with this symbol in the upper left hand corner. Looks like it could symbolize Satan's asserting his position of power over the deceived masses of a coming One World religion/Order and the trinity of evil?

(Keep in mind how the devil counterfeits the true and living God.

For instance, Jesus Christ is considered the 'chief cornerstone' (Eph. 2:20). And when the LORD mentions position, the right is exalted (Psalm 118), and not the left.)

For a while, assertions like “the EU is the new USSR” caused a hurt feeling in Europe. “But we have parties and vote; no one is in jail for his views; we allow religions” — was the riposte. I have a feeling that after this financial crisis, if the EU ever emerges from it at all, the true nature of EUSSR will be clear to all.
