First the EU, next Frankenstein? Nobel Committee’s decision ‘farcical’ – RT’s Max Keiser

The Nobel Committee had a more legitimate choice for its Peace Prize in “Bill Clinton’s left testicle” than the EU, RT’s Max Kaiser said. Kaiser slammed the award as honoring a technocracy that impoverishes its citizens to feed monstrous banks.

RT:The EU has won for its role in uniting the continent – but at a time of rising separatism and the economy in a slump, how do you explain that?Max Keiser: This is the rise of the machine. This is a machine selection that chose a machine. The EU is a technocracy governed by machines, joined with the banking establishment to suck wealth from the citizens of the EU and send it to Brussells and the banksters and sent it to the World Bank and the EU and the Troika. This is the rise of the machines, it’s farcical. They could’ve given the prize to Bill Clinton’s left testicle and it would have been more legitimate than giving it to a technocratic monstrosity. This is like giving the prize to Frankenstein for being the best monster created during the past 12 months. Where do they go from here? Who are they going to give it to next? They are going to give it to a genetically modified seed in India where farmers are killing themselves by the thousands because of companies like Monsanto. Give it to Monsanto next year, Nobel Committee! I mean your track record for giving this prize to warmongers, banksters and corporate fascists is becoming quite impressive.RT: Will this award give any kind of economic boost to the Union and help it out of the pit it’s in?MK: No, absolutely not. They want to create a new super-bank take power from the ECB, run it out of Brussels and impose a new debt-for-junk scheme, rolling up all the toxic debt into a new super European Central Bank to impose more austerity and pilfer more money from the citizens. The direction this is going is absolutely catastrophic. Christine Lagarde, I’m sure she’ll get the Nobel Prize next year for having caused another 100 million people to go into poverty and another few hundred people to commit suicide. Let’s give it to Christine Lagarde, she’s a warmongering genocidal maniac, give her the Peace Prize!RT: How do we balance the Peace Prize with the EU's interventions in Libya, EU members on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan and its support for the armed opposition in Syria?MK: There is only one contender for the Peace Prize this year and it is Julian Assange. The fact that he did not win this prize will be an eternal stain on the Nobel Committee. No one has done more to push peace than Julian Assange, he should be getting the award from this committee. The fact that they’ve turned to a bunch of machines and technocrats in the EU is an embarrassment. They should go back to making dynamite, which is how the Nobel Prize Committee got started. Go back to making dynamite and forget about this Peace Prize. You’re illegitimate, you’ve embarrassed yourselves, just fold. Commit suicide for a change, instead of encouraging people in Greece to commit suicide!
