UCC & Jean Monnet - Pushing EU propaganda in Ireland
Jean Monnet (1888–1979) is regarded by many as one of the founding fathers of the European Union. Some refer to him as "The Father of Europe"

To carry on his legacy of European Integration , the EU created The Jean Monnet Programme .

The Jean Monnet Programme is a European Union initiative funded by the EU Commission's Erasmus - Jean Monnet Activities fund

The purpose of the Programme is to gather educators from accross the union who will promote the the union in their teachings and research and create the next generation of teachers and researchers .

There are currently three universities in Ireland taking part in various Jean Monnet Programmes . Trinity College Dublin , University of Limerick and University College Cork .

For the purpose of this article we are staying with University College Cork.
 
  

Dr Emmanuelle Schön-Quinlivan is a lecturer in European Politics at University College Cork and is also the Director of its BSc in political science course . A former student of Monnet Professor Brigid Laffan , she heads up UCCs Monnet Programme .

Emmanuelle named her Monnet Programme  - "My Big friendly guide to the EU" or BFGtoEU for short.

The programme is a 6 week training course aimed at young children from junior infants to sixth class .

The stated purpose of the programme is to teach children about "EU values" , "Symbols , Purpose and Ambitions" through lessons and activity sheets .

Its promotional Video shows that the lessons are political in nature . For example , Lesson 5 asks children to discuss EU regulations and to explore the idea of Shared sovereignty and Solidarity . The Videos show very small children assembling EU flags , making 'EU Smoothies' , Colouring in printed drawings with targeted messages about the EU and playing board games such as 'the EU chase' game to name but a few 

In one of her tweets , Emmanuelle reassures people that its "not about selling the EU" to children. 

However , Political indoctrination is defined as persuading people to adopt certain beliefs, ideas, values, and ideologies related to politics and governance. This certainly fits the description of what Emmanuelle is offering .

According to French psychoanalyst, Clotaire Rapaille, children are imprinted by their cultures during the first 7 years of their lives and these imprints shape their future behavior.

This has been recognised by the EU for many years now . In 2010 at an education show in Birmingham , Judith Schilling , the EU Commission's publication manager in London stated .. "everyone has now picked up on the idea that we will never succeed in convincing people about the EU unless we start early enough with the young people before they form prejudices and are misinformed by other sources"

This is child abuse . its wrong . it will only stop when parents say NO , enough is enough . The state/eu has no business politically indoctrinating children , this should be illegal
#
and they want to get rid of irish history in schools and replace it with this kind of thing
#
Jean Monnet was an anti democrat , just like his successors , in his memoirs he wrote that they would push ahead with their federalist project in the face of public opposition and ignorance

Targeting children in the classroom is nothing new to these people , their predecessors (the national socialists) did the same thing

#
The Department of Government and Politics at UCC is run by the EU . Its the only university in Ireland to have a Jean Monnet module in some of its courses.

you need only visit their website , everything is about the EU and Jean Monnet .

Also for supposedly educated people , Lesson 5 is just wrong .

Sovereignty by its own definition cannot be shared .

... "sovereignty is the quality of having 'supreme' 'independent' authority over a geographic area or region"

Therefore , if you pool it or share it out , its no longer sovereignty anymore its something much different

I wonder if they teach the kids that we Voted No to Nice and Lisbon but our vote was ignored , somehow I doubt it

1916 Proclamation - "we declare the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland and to the unfettered control of Irish Destinies to be Sovereign and Indefeasible"

What I would like to know is where are all of our patriot academics gone to . Where are all our historians . Why are they not standing up when they see that our history is being re-written and our children are being indoctrinated to forget about their heritage .
