The comic potential is huge: Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has been appointed special advisor to the EU Commission on internet freedom.
Die Welt was quick to seize the delightful moment when Guttenberg and the EU Commission finally buried their reputation under 20 metres of concrete.
Guttenberg was axed from his position as Defence Minister because internet activists in February 2011 documented that most of his doctorate was plagiarised.
To give this man the job of protecting the freedom of the internet is to propel the EU Commission into the wild realms of farce.
“High-class plagarist als internetsheriff” mocks Austria’s Der Standard.
Both Guttenberg and his wife have been at the forefront of a push for censoring the internet under the pretext of controlling paedophilia.
Germany’s Hamburger Abendblatt calls the decision to hire Guttenberg as a special advisor on internet freedom grostesque.
Many Germans have been brainwashed by mainstream media propaganda into thinking that the EU Commission is a solid organisation defending freedom. To see the most discredited and fraudulent politician appointed a special advisor to the EU Commission in an area for which he is least qualified will change their minds very fast. It also underlines the way the EU Commission has become the haunt of the failed Global Elite.
It was only a couple of weeks ago, after all, that Guttenberg entertained us all with his hilarious interview book “Vorest gescheitert” or “For now, have failed.”
The book showed an astonishing capacity to deny the obvious. In page after page, Guttenberg insists he was not aware that he was engaging in plagiarism when about 80% of his doctorate is verifiably lifted from other sources. He lashes out at a professor in Bayreuth University who called him a “fraud.”
Profiling himself as a Europhile, a man of the people and a moralist, he accuses his own party of being out of touch and floats the idea of founding his own party. Some of the staff working for Bild newspaper may well sign up. But how many others are going to join Guttenberg in his new proletarian army marching to the tune of the bankster Global elite?
The criticism in the German mainstream media of Guttenberg’s book was so fierce, it made blogs like this seem tame.
“A dangerous man” wrote FAZ.
The farcical twist was that this book was supposed to restore his credibility and smoothe his return to politics in Germany next year after a brief exile in the USA working for a globalist think tank. It did the opposite. Barely had the state prosecutor in Hof announced no criminal charges were to be filed against Guttenberg, than he made an explosive return, finally burning all his bridges to a political position in Germany as long as there is a smudgen of representative democracy left.
What does a disgraced German politician do who desperately needs to get hold of the levers of power to push the agenda of his clique? He goes to the EU Commission.
In spite of having absolutely no qualifications, the Bilderberg network has given him a position.
EU Commissioner for the internet and Bilderberg member Neelie Kroes said it was her idea to appoint Guttenberg during the interview. In the same interview, she admitted she had made many big mistakes during her career. Appointing Guttenberg was another big mistake. The amazing thing is that EU Commission doesn’t even seem to realise it can no longer afford to be patrons of Guttenberg now that polls show Germany increasingly turning against the puppet masters in Brussels.
