Oh the Irony! Red Pope Francis Wins Charlemagne Award As He Calls for the Destruction of Europe
Saint Charlemagne, or Charles the Great, was an emperor was King of the Franks. He united most of Western Europe during the early Middle Ages and laid the foundations for modern France and Germany. Charlemagne led several military campaigns against the Muslims and converted much of Western Europe to Christianity.
On Friday, Red Pope Francis, a Socialist and open borders fanatic, won the Charlemagne award. He called for the elimination of walls during his acceptance speech.
And Pope Francis continues to call for the destruction of Western Society.
What a disgrace.
Pope Francis said Friday he dreamed of a Europe in which “being a migrant is not a crime”, as he urged EU leaders to “tear down the walls” and build a fairer society.
Invoking the memory of the EU founding fathers’ pursuit of integration in the aftermath of World War II, the pontiff said they inspired because they had “dared to change radically the models” that had led to war.
“Today more than ever, their vision inspires us to build bridges and tear down walls,” he told a Vatican audience including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been at the centre of the EU’s attempts to resolve its biggest refugee crisis since the war ended in 1945.
And in a rhetorical flourish with echoes of Martin Luther-King’s legendary ‘I have a dream’ speech, the pope said he dreamed of a new European humanism that embraced the poor, the elderly, the young and the sick.
“I dream of a Europe where being a migrant is not a crime but a summons to greater commitment on behalf of the dignity of every human being,” he said.
Francis’s comments came in a speech as the 79-year-old pontiff was presented with the EU’s Charlemagne Prize for his contribution to European unification.
Having unexpectedly decided to accept the award, Francis delivered a typically hard-hitting message to listeners that also included the heads of the EU’s main institutions, the Council, the Commission, the Parliament and its central bank.
