PROF: RYSZARD LEGUTKO: “Two minutes of truth, of bitter truth” in the European Parliament

During ceremony of the 70th anniversary of the European Parliament, the European Conservatives and Reformists made cutting criticisms. Speaking on behalf of the Group, Chairman Prof Ryszard Legutko pointed out that in the strict sense it is only a quasi-parliament, alienating millions of voters.

“Madam President, Prime Ministers. Two minutes of truth, of bitter truth. And the bitter truth is that the European Parliament has done a lot of damage in Europe. It has been sending a false message it represents the European demos. There isn’t, and there won’t be any European demos. The Parliament infected Europe with shameless partisanship and the infection became so contagious that it spread to other institutions such as the European Commission.

The Parliament has abandoned the basic function of representing people. Instead, it has become a machine to implement the so-called European project, thus alienating millions of voters. The Parliament has become a political vehicle of the left to impose their monopoly with their fierce intolerance towards any dissenting view. No matter how many times you repeat the word ‘diversity’. Diversity is becoming an extinct species in the European Union and particularly in this chamber.

The Parliament is a quasi-parliament because it rejects the essential principle of parliamentarism, namely accountability. The deputy – let me remind you – is elected by the voters and must be accountable to the voters that elected him. Not so in the European Union. The idea that, say, Spanish, German, French, et cetera, deputies accountable to their own national electorates can dictate something to, shall we say, Hungarian society or any other society to which they cannot be held accountable and which cannot take them to task is simply preposterous.

Call it what you will. But democracy, it is not. To sum up, the Parliament represents the demos that does not exist, works for the project that ignores reality and law, shuns accountability, turns its back on millions of people and serves the interest of one political orientation. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Having said that, ladies and gentlemen, I rest my case.”

  1. John 3:19-20 "And this is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light; for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, so that his deeds will not be exposed." You sir, shined the light. Well done!

  2. Bravo!

    The fact that you can make this statement in a democracy without fear of being silenced with violence or intimidation proves it is a democracy……WIP

    Democracy is a WORK IN PROGRESS!!

  3. Well said Sr. More representatives like you could be appreciated but it seems, judging by their laughter and reactions, that the corruption has poisson so many already. They have sold their souls for profit. How much they will regret one day their deeds, unfortunately for many it will be an eternal time of sorrow with no way out.

  4. A refreshing change, ethics and truth, it was worth it just to see the “smacked arse” faces of those lefties hearing the “awful” truth they would rather have left unsaid – thank you Sir, for expressing what we all feel.

    "The difference between a Democracy and a Dictatorship is that in a Democracy

    you vote first and take orders later,In a Dictatorship you don't have to wast your time voting"

  6. If they were accountable we wouldn't be in this mess all around the world.They have a thieving hand in the taxpayers pockets,and refuse to let go.They are all bloodsucking parasites who answer to no one except their corporate masters.

    nd in the

  7. I am a Croatian so my skin is in the game.
    Take a look at the situation in Canada and the USoA. Clapping and cheering on someone we think is right achieves nothing. Our enemy, "the left", counts on us being subdued like that. We need to fight more directly. We need to do something. The craziness is spreading.
    We need to start taking action, start doing something. Smething needs to be done.

  8. Yes the EU is a festering sore that needs to be addressed and removed. Unfortunately this is not going to occur until the end, which is not too far away if one looks at what these maniacs are doing to Farmers – Our Food Source across Western Society. People, its time to stand up and fight back.

  9. You can see why the EU isn't working. They all chat, look at their phones, don't give a 💩 about the people…most of them follow the orders of the rich guys who tell them what to do. They are 100% owned. What a farce!

  10. A very direct speech .. cuts to the heart of the problem EU mandates are destroying Farmers and these Emissions targets
    I'd say not only in Europe but the rest of the world has fallen to the Left .. through the education system and all levels of institutions Justice Government ..

  11. will this be enough to sway the international powers into having more brains and more hearth ? maybe, we will se. i have been surprised before, despite all my sarcasm and stoicism and disilusionment. there is yet hope.
