"European Historical Consciousness", or EU's deplorable attempt to equate Communism with Nazism

By Nikos Mottas

The European Parliament has never ceased being an endless source of anti-communist propaganda. Having adopted anti-communism as its official ideology, the EU and its institutions relentlessly continue the attempt to re-write history by promoting the deeply unscientific and unhistorical theory of "the two extremes".

More specifically, according to a recent statement by the Europarliament Group of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), the EU Parliament published a report on “European historical consciousness”, in which it “acknowledges the crimes committed by Nazi, fascist and communist totalitarian regimes as well as under colonialism...”!

MEPs of the KKE reject EU Parliament resolution that labels Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism”

Cunning Euroatlantic supporters

Supporting the further escalation of the imperialist conflict in Ukraine,  on 23 November 2022 the European Parliament adopted a resolution characterizing Russia as a “state sponsor of terrorism”. Putting forward the well-known “anti-terrorist” pretexts that have been utilized for imperialist interventions around the globe, the European Parliament, in continuation of previous resolutions-warmongering frenzy, attempts to “whitewash” the role of the Euroatlantic bloc in the imperialist conflict in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. It paves the way for further involvement of the EU in the war as well as for new sanctions that add fuel to the fire.

At a time when the imperialist war in Ukraine is dangerously escalating, the European Parliament adopted a resolution (07/10/2022) that literally constitutes a warmongering frenzy.
