Unelected EU Foreign Policy Tsar Berates Lukashenko for Not Meeting EU’s Democracy Standards

Standards for Belarus, not the EU

EU’s “High Representative” Josep Borrell:

The EU does not recognize Alexander Lukashenko as the president of Belarus, the bloc’s top diplomat said Tuesday.

“We are using all the tools that we have at our disposal to contribute to the end of the violent repression that has been developing in Belarus after the elections, which we do not consider to have legitimately elected Lukashenko,” Josep Borrell, the EU’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, told MEPs.

This is like that Dave Chappelle skit where a KKK ideologue learns that he too is black. An EU Politburo member pronouncing that Lukashenko isn’t democratically “legitimate”. At least Lukashenko ran in some sort of election and without a doubt got the most votes. Borrel rose up in a backroom deal.

Between the two I’d say Lukashenko is a lot more legitimate and a lot closer to an actual tribune of the demos.

But Guaido is democratically elected and Ecuador and Bolivia are shining examples, how democratic elections should look like!

Look ! Don’t you people know, that regardless of Lukashenko winning the election, it doesn’t give him a mandate to rule ??
Mandate is delivered by the City of London, countersigned by Wall St & Brussels !

The EU’s democracy standards = Libya and Afghanistan.

The EU and fat ass Nazi Frau Merkel don’t give a flying fuck about democracy. I’m beginning to think another rotted out, perverted culture – Germany – doesn’t give a flying fuck about much of anything, other than money and drinking and drugs and getting fucked.

How old is that old prison camp guard Merkel? Seems like she is Dominatrix for Life.

I do like Chapelle. Much like Saturday Night Live during the 1970s and Monty Python during the same time frame and South Park he doesn’t spare anyone and doesn’t give one fuck about censors or shitty political parties or what Karen and your mom might say.

the amerikan EU contempt for democracy is well displayed—they recognized little Beto orourke (Juan Gauido) to be duly elected leader of Venezuela
