With an arbitrary decision against the existing flag order Bundestag President Norbert Lammert has replaced one of the four prescribed black-red-golden flags on the Berlin Reichstag, who was once dedicated "the German people" with an EU flag.
Explicitly the current operating procedures of the Federal Republic of Germany demand that the federal or federal service flag has to be hoisted upon the political and military premises.
The relevant regulation will soon be adapted by the federal administration, bypassing the Parliament. This procedure is contrary to all protocols, but those will be adapted in the future in order to ensure the eurocratic solo run of Lammert.
Following these news most online editions of major daily newspapers blocked the comments function summarily, to most papers this scandalous case of obvious challenge of the sovereignty of the Berlin Parliament is not even worth a side note. Nevertheless, several publications reported in almost the same tenor, irrespective of their political orientation.
Apart from entirely angry reader comments parts of the press complained about the sheer audacity of the Bundestag President concerning his disregard of existing regulations and rules by winding up a piece of cloth that symbolizes neither a state, let alone a nation, and certainly not a democratically legitimated power construct. Lammert wanted to demonstrate the "solidarity of the Bundestag to Europe".
Criticism of loss of sovereignty even by the "Red Flag" magazine.
It’s worthwhile to look more closely at this formulation, if not to take it with a pinch of salt.
That the Bundestag has deteriorated into a mere staunch vassal of the EU bureaucracy monster is nothing new, after all 84 % of all laws and legislative tasks don’t originate from Berlin, but from Brussels and Strasbourg.
Intentionally Lammert doesn’t speak of the German people, but only of the parliamentarians, the political caste of Germany, which is decoupled from the people by lobbying for their globalist fantasies.
Even the communist "Red Flag" seconds the choir of countless conservative readers, that the EU project was not decided by the people in self-determination. It’s no secret that the majority of Germans and Europeans fundamentally reject the EU project, as it became obvious in several recent plebiscites f.e. in France, the Netherlands and Ireland.
For one, because the opaque bureaucracy is simply incomprehensible and wastes oodles of tax payer’s money for bankrupt countries, while the supposed advantage of the pseudo-federal countries conglomerate is not clear to the citizen. On the other hand there are no credible explanations for absurd EU howlers like regulations about the size and degree of curvature of bananas or intervals of umbrellas in beer gardens, not to mention the apparently more and more common cash-injections, bail-outs and financial-aid programs against the paragraphs of the European treaties for collapsing economies on the periphery.
Disclosure of the issue of power
Now, one may think of the EU what one wants, and should also bear in mind that it was neither created as administrative machinery nor as a pure economic space in the beginning. Nevertheless, one has to get angry about this blatant insolence, because Lammert and his followers have shown who the real rulers are and that quite simply and visible to everyone.
Therefore his formulation which decouples the Bundestag from the people is just nothing more than putting the sour cherry on the cake.
The ruling class committed an incomprehensible act of audacity against their own people, what they probably don’t perceive as such any longer anyway as it was shown openly and bluntly by demonstrating who exercises the real power over Germany and over the once free nations of Europe.
The people as alleged sovereign dispute the political class with sheer contempt. This is symbolized now with winding up the ragged shreds.
