Outrageous. New EU Poster Puts Hammer and Sickle Above Christian Cross and Other Religious Symbols

Communism above all – It’s the EU way.

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).”
