Con il passare del tempo molti aspetti enigmatici della personalità politica del Presidente della Commissione Europea, Mrs Ursula von der Leyen iniziano a chiarirsi: la ragazza è davvero bellicosa.
Si preannunciano tempi di conflitti all’ultimo sangue tra Consiglio Europeo, Commissione Europea ed europarlamento.
Questi sono stati i prodromi:
«In succinta sintesi, alle elezioni europee il Partito Popolare Europeo e quello Socialista hanno perso assieme un centinaio di seggi, perdendo così la maggioranza.
Sia Weber, il candidato del Ppe, sia Timmerman, il candidato del Pse, sono stati bocciati dal Consiglio Europeo, che ha proposto Mrs von der Leyen, nome suggerito da Frau Merkel che si era previamente accordata con i polacchi e con gli ungheresi, che infatti la hanno votata.
Il quadro politico che ne risulta è dilacerante. Nessuno schieramento politico è in grado di imporre la propria volontà politica, mentre tutti hanno la concreta possibilità di bloccare quella altrui. Non da ultimo, esercitando il diritto di veto.»
«I candidati alle Commissioni dovranno sostenere una audizione in seno al parlamento europeo, che esprimerà quindi su ciascuno di essi un parere, parere che però non sarà vincolante: alla fine sarà la sola Mrs Ursula von del Leyen a decidere i nomi dei Commissari.»
«Mr László Trócsányi, nominalmente un indipendente, è talmente vicino al Fidesz di Mr Orban da essere stato nominato ministro della giustizia. Lui ed il candidato polacco, Mr Janusz Wojciechowski, membro del PiS, sono la pulpite purulenta dei liberal socialisti europei, i quali li odiano quasi più di Mr Salvini.»
«Spettacolo che si consumerà mentre l’Unione Europea prosegue a grandi passi verso una profonda depressione del suo sistema economico. Ma è certamente più facile parlare del the rule of law che di come uscire dalla crisi.»

L’ultimo casus belli è la nomina fatta da Mrs von der Leyen del greco Margaritis Schinas quale vice-presidente nella Commissione “protecting our European way of life“.
Tutti i liberal socialisti sono insorti alla grande.
Infatti la Presidente von der Leyen nella lettera di incarico aveva scritto anche:
«Changes in climate, digital technologies and geopolitics are already having a profound effect on the lives of Europeans. We are witnessing major shifts all the way from global power structures to local politics. ….
The High Representative/Vice-President will support me in coordinating the external dimension of all Commissioners’ work. ….
We must engage with all Europeans, not just those who live in the capitals or are knowledgeable about the European Union. I will expect you to visit every Member State within the first half of our mandate at the latest. ….
I would like to entrust you with the role of Vice-President for Protecting our European Way of Life.
Protecting our European way of life requires making sure workers are equipped to thrive in our evolving labour market. A declining workforce and a digital and basic skills gap brings into sharp focus the need to equip people with the tools and knowledge they need. It also highlights the need for well-managed legal migration, a strong focus on integration and ensuring our communities are cohesive and close-knit. This is both an opportunity and a necessity for Europe.
The European way of life is built around solidarity, peace of mind and security. We must address and allay legitimate fears and concerns about the impact of irregular migration on our economy and society. This will require us to work together to find common solutions which are grounded in our values and our responsibilities. We must also work more closely together on security, notably on new and emerging threats that cut across borders and policies.
You will chair the Commissioners’ Group on Protecting our European Way of Life. ….
Europe needs an economy and a labour market that have the people with the right skills to ensure that we preserve our European way of life and our competitiveness.»

I liberal socialisti dell’europarlamento sono inveleniti. Stanno dando del fascista a destra e manca.
«Some announcements from EU incoming chief Ursula von der Leyen about her Commission raised eyebrows on Tuesday but perhaps none more so than the new portfolio for “Protecting our European Way of Life.” ….
But it’s what falls under his purview that has raised eyebrows and seen accusations of “fascist thinking” lobbed at the Commission. ….
Among those who denounced Schinas’s portfolio name is Claude Moraes, a British MEP from the Labour party.
“”Protecting our European way of life” should not seriously have been a Portfolio title in a modern European Commission of 2019,” he wrote on Twitter, later adding: “Seriously. Any idea how this comes across?” ….
French MEP Damien Careme, from the Greens, condemned the portfolio name as “an abomination.” ….
Environmental protection NGO Friends of the Earth blasted the portfolio’s name, writing on Twitter that “the idea that ‘Europeans’ need to be shielded from external cultures is fascist thinking that shouldn’t be near migration policy.”» [Fonte]
«Creating a portfolio ‘Protection of the European way of life’ in response to ‘legitimate fears and concerns about the impact of irregular migration’ is totally misguided and reprehensible»
«contradiction between supporting refugees and European values»
«the portfolio name was “an abomination.”»
«Linking migration with security, in the portfolio of the Commissioner for Protecting our European Way of Life, risks sending a worrying message»

La Commissione Europea avrà il suo gran bel da fare. Ma ben più difficile sarà il comprendere ciò che vorrà fare l’Italia.
Improvvisamente la lPresidente della Commissione Frau Ursula von der Leyen è diventata fascista, nazista, razzista, identitaria, ovranista, abominevole, e financo omofoba.
Deutsche Welle. 2019-09-11. EU post to ‘protect European way of life’ called ‘disgusting,’ ‘reprehensible’
EU Commission chief von der Leyen was accused of creating a new position with a xenophobic message. The office for “protecting our European way of life” has been criticized within Brussels and throughout the EU.
A new post created by incoming European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen earned widespread condemnation on Wednesday, with NGOs saying it sent a “worrying message” and EU lawmakers calling it “reprehensible.”
Von der Leyen has renamed a number of Commission positions to make them sound less formal and more goal-oriented, including the now controversial rebranding of the former “migration, home affairs, and citizenship” portfolio to the new office for “protecting our European way of life.”
The new title was immediately criticized on social media for its perceived fascist-sounding name, but also garnered critique from within Brussels.
“Creating a portfolio ‘Protection of the European way of life’ in response to ‘legitimate fears and concerns about the impact of irregular migration’ is totally misguided and reprehensible,” said Sophie in ‘t Veld, a progressive Dutch MEP.
Ska Keller, a German lawmaker who heads the Green party bloc in the European Parliament, also voiced her concern that the new post implied a “contradiction between supporting refugees and European values.”
Damien Careme, a French member of the Greens, said the portfolio name was “an abomination.”
“It looks pretty but when one realizes that it means he will be in charge of migration, integration and security, then it’s absolutely disgusting,” Careme added.
The head of Amnesty International’s European institutions office, Eve Geddie, said, “Linking migration with security, in the portfolio of the Commissioner for Protecting our European Way of Life, risks sending a worrying message.”
Von der Leyen defends post
The new post has been given to Margaritis Schinas, a former Greek member of European Parliament and longtime civil servant for the Commission.
He clarified the goal of the position by saying his office would be “better protecting our citizens and borders and modernizing our asylum system, to investing in Europeans’ skills and creating brighter futures for our youth, I am confident that we can take great strides over the next five years to both protect and empower Europeans.”
Von der Leyen’s office responded to the criticism by pointing out that the name of the portfolio had been in her public strategy papers since July, and that the purpose of the office was to coordinate cross-border development and fighting terrorism, as well as protect values and democracy.
