Skip to comments.Germany's answer to 'America First' is 'Europe United' [barf]

Germany has responded to US President Donald Trumps egotistic policy of America First by calling on the European Union to bundle its strength and show more courage continuing the more bellicose German rhetoric that followed the US decision last week to withdraw from a G7 statement.
Under President Trump, the Atlantic has got wider, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Wednesday, standing at a podium emblazoned with the hashtag #EuropeUnited. Where the US administration overtly calls our values and interests into question, we certainly need to take a more robust stance.
During the speech, delivered to a room full of young Europeans at the Pulse of Europe event in Berlin, Maas slammed Trumps willingness to undermine alliances that had developed over decades in the time it takes to write a tweet. [ ]
The EU needed to do more than just adjust a couple of screws in the Brussels apparatus, the bloc must change its own mentality, Maas said, not least because the times were becoming radicalized by nationalism, populism and chauvinism.
We need more Europe, not less Europe, especially now, he said.
Echoing his SPD colleagues, Maas also said it was vital to keep the EUs internal border open and free even while protecting the external borders. For much too long we have left Italy and Greece alone with these tasks, he said.

Why not “Tommy IMPRISONED”, Europe, eh..?
The correct slogan should be “Europe United by Force!”
Yeah, the Krauts know all about trying to “unite” Europe, don’t they?
That’s what #EuropeUnited will bring more of, for sure.
I fall back on the policy statement from the other day: “We’re America, bitch!”. Works for me.
Europe Enslaved. Owned and operated by a globalist regime.
Good, Now pay your own bills.
Good for them, but the closest Europe’s ever been to being united was under the Third Reich.
Sounds awfully close to “Stronger Together”.
United Europe, huh?
In other words: “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer!”
After the revolution, the colonies tried a confederation. It failed and a constitution was developed to unite the states under a federal government. The result was The United States of America.
Europe is now in the confederation stage.
I am near certain there will never be a constitution developed that will create a United States of Europe.
The Delusional Lying Left’s hypocritical new attack on national sovereignty: “egotism”. The Delusional Lying Left might as well say that people’s self interest for self preservation is “egotism.”
The Delusional Lying Left’s hypocritical Global Totalitarian Government: “suicide”.
Good. Let them unite and write a big fat check for their ENTIRE military defense, and we can pull the hell out.
Well, there was Napoleon.
The Socialist Muslim States of Europe....The SMSE
The ten toes of clay mixed iron
Europe's lifespan is now measured in decades. They should have taken a more robust stand against the moslem hordes that recently invaded the continent. But demographically, Europe was already dying. The moslem invasion will just hasten the process.
