It’s no secret to European citizens that the European Commission is responsible for everything from promoting legislation to managing the day-to-day business of the European Union. But it should come as a surprise that a portion of its ample budget goes to the creation of bizarre cartoons to promote pro-EU propaganda.
Sponsored by the European Commission, a newly released film by Européens Sans Frontières (Europeans Without Borders) depicts the EU as a magical fairy that rescues Muslim refugees on a magic carpet. Titled Eurodame, Help!, the film looks like a bad parody of classic agitprop, but it’s real—and it makes one wonder what the French artists were smoking at the studio.
The film, which was also funded by the French government as part of a drive to encourage immigration to Western Europe, also depicts Eastern European countries as racist for their refusal to accept refugees.
