Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Europe is love, Europe is life: EU Commission takes heat for ‘Orwellian’ tweet ahead of elections”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“The EU is peace. The EU is freedom. The EU is solidarity. The EU is diversity. The EU is human rights. The EU is opportunities,” read the Commission’s tweet, posted on Saturday. The message ended with a simple instruction: “Vote.”

With European Parliament elections scheduled for next weekend, there are a multitude of political parties across the continent who question the commission’s 11 EU commandments.

British Euroskeptic Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is set to pick up the most votes in the UK, beating both the Conservatives and Labour Party combined in one poll. In France, Marine Le Pen’s National Rally is edging past pro-EU Emmanuel Macron’s En Marche! party, while Italian populist Matteo Salvini has predicted a historic victory for “the politics of good sense,” and held a rally with 11 other European nationalist leaders in Milan on Saturday.

Electioneering aside, some observers noted that the commission’s “creepy” tweet bore a striking resemblance to the three slogans of the ruling party in George Orwell’s dystopian novel ‘1984:' “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.”
