Juncker Reads the Riot Act to Austria

The following brief clip shows the reaction of Jean-Claude “Drunker” Juncker, the president of the European Commission, to Austria’s decision not to sign the UN’s migration pact. Mr. Juncker is obviously miffed with his Austrian colleagues for not joining the European consensus.

Mind you, this initiative is not a European one; it comes from the United Nations. Why should the European Commission take it upon itself to enforce knee-jerk compliance with ukases emanating from Turtle Bay?

And his vow that he will “talk to [his] Austrian friends” about their decision seems a bit ominous. Is he planning to make them an offer they can’t refuse?

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Video transcript:

00:00   The recent Austrian decision is very regrettable.
00:05   And I would like to repeat what I stated in the European
00:09   Parliament weeks ago: that we have to decide by qualified
00:13   majority on foreign policy issues. It is unacceptable that
00:17   the European Union is unable to speak with one voice
00:21   concerning an question essential to our future.
00:25   But we will talk to our Austrian friends about this matter
00:29   in the coming weeks.

  1. The upcoming EU elections promise to change its composition. Juncker is full of bluster but his authority is all but spent – hence his stamping of feet and tearing out of hair.

  2. Elites like Junker have still not gotten over the fact that Trump, rather than Hillary, is President. Under a President Hillary, the use of NATO troops to enforce EU diktats could not be discounted. In fact, Hillary might see herself in competition with her husband, and come down even more fiercely on uppity Europeans resisting Muslim aggression than her husband and NATO did in 1992.

  3. Junker acts like a dictator , perhaps he is the descendant of one a national socialist circa 1940 , an unelected Fuhrer .

  4. I believe he is from luxembourg which by happenstance is one of the most pleasant, affluent and least afflicted by migrants countries in Europe. Perhaps it may also be a leech upon the other countries as a fiscal menagerie. A gentleman of comfort, one may say. Too much comfort perhaps?
