    EU withdraws £106,000 'racist' propaganda video
    The European Union has withdrawn a £106,000 propaganda video promoting itself as a force for world peace after complaints of “racism”.

    By Bruno Waterfield, Brussels

    Last week’s short “viral” internet film shows a white woman, dressed in gold and blue clothes, the colours of the EU’s flag, overcoming threatening, dark-skinned martial arts assailants.

    First the EU heroine, modelled on the martial arts film Kill Bill, is menaced by a Chinese Kung Fu master. Then a second threat appears as a urbaned practitioner of Kalaripayattu, a southern Indian martial art, levitates towards her brandishing a scimitar.

    As she turns to face the new menace, a third black assailant with dreadlocks cartwheels aggressively towards her before striking a Capoeira pose, the Brazilian martial art.

    But staring at the men, the woman does not fight. Splitting into 12 versions of herself, the number of stars on the EU’s flag, she encircles the men, who drop their weapons and aggressive fighting stances.

    All then sit cross legged on the ground talking and the 12 identical women morphs into the EU’s flag with the slogan, “the more we are, the stronger we are”.

    European Commission officials were forced moved to pull the film from YouTube on Tuesday after thousands of complaints that the video promoted “imperialism” and “stereotypes” rather than the EU’s “neighbourhood” policy.

    Stefano Sannino, the official in charge of the Commission’s enlargement and neighbourhood policy, insisted that the film, targeting 16 to 24-year olds, had been well received by target audiences and focus groups.

    “The clip featured typical characters for the martial arts genre: it started with demonstration of their skills and ended with all characters showing their mutual respect, concluding in a position of peace and harmony. The genre was chosen to attract young people and to raise their curiosity on an important EU policy,” he said.

    But following many complaints, Mr Sannino said that, despite the €127,000 production cost, the two minute video would be axed.

    “The clip was absolutely not intended to be racist and we obviously regret that it has been perceived in this way,” he said.

    “We apologise to anyone who may have felt offended. Given these controversies, we have decided to stop the campaign immediately and to withdraw the video.”

    One YouTube viewer posted the comment: “White woman defends against Black, Asian and Indian men... racist much? UK taxpayers' money should not be used to promote an agency to which the public is so diametrically opposed.”

    What the ---- this is?! Who directed this? Damn, it seems that EU as a whole is a magnet for every idiot... the sooner EU will fall and normality back to Europe, the better is our future.

    My misantropia growed bigger after wathing this... thing.

    BTW, a small hint to our "brilliant" leaders, You want more babies to born? Then cut these incredibly high taxes, because that money is wasted for social support of unproductive part of society.

    With smaller taxes more money will be left in people pocket, if they have more money, they will be able to live better, they will be capable to have many chilldren, because in highly developed society number of children depends on capability of parents to buy food for them, pay for their education, etc. etc. etc.

    When they finally understood that strenght of nation, country and state, depends more on citizens welth not how high are taxes and how much money will be wasted on some idiocy... like this... thing.

    How the eff is this racist? Leftists really need to get a life! These fighters represent different nations and hence different races. What's racist about this?

    It is more hilarious than racist. What's the bet some Paki would have actually complained about this in UK, living off government benefits? :D

    They should have included Russian Systema (Система), the most contemporarily developed martial art:



    This is the most relevant of these days. No swords, no tridents, no spears, ..., but fighting with usual stuff a soldier has, i.e., an assault rifle, or with bare hands.

    I think Europeans leave off the Russians because they feed real fear feelings from Russia, a nuke army hitting in their doors:rolleyes:

    ^^

    I think so too. Who wants to annoy the Big Bear, that has recently found much strength, and is also a supplier of energy crucial for Europe?

    At least Europeans still have the ability to entertain the rest of the world with their stupidity, once Pakistan collapses where can we look for such entertainment besides Europa?

    curious about this coincidence of german state sponsored english media so interested in India's racism just about a week before the INDIA-AFRICA Summit. link -
    notice how the narrator conveniently forgets to mention where these ignorant notions about africa came from in the first place, which media depicted them as such which is now spread all around the less-educated and vulnerable world.
