Unbecoming Post Calls for Violence and Satanizes EU and NATO

This manipulative post is spreading the well-known insulting and indecent propaganda narrative of satanizing NATO and the EU. Contrary to the claim made in the post, NATO is not connected with a religious army, but the Alliance enrolls troops regardless of their religious background. The values advocated by the EU have nothing to do with the legalization of pedophilia. Quite the opposite, pedophilia is a criminal act in all EU member states. The purpose of such propaganda is to discredit the West and NATO which has been going on for a longer period and was especially intensified after the condemnation of the Russian invasion of Ukraine


We are fact-checking a post on the social network Facebook claiming the following:

Death to the satanic NATO anti-Christ’s army of fag*ot pedophile EU the strategic partners of DpSneUdba and hydroMicko LA*NAR with his LOBOTOMIZED voters.

Apart from the fact that the post contains indecent language – insulting to the group of voters of political parties in Macedonia – this post underscored the alleged values advocated by the EU and NATO which in reality do not correspond with the EU values, neither does it correspond with the reasons for NATO’s existence, yet it tried to “satanize” the organizations. Posts where NATO leaders are proclaimed as “Satanists” are not new, but are part of a well-planned propaganda machinery promoting this narrative aiming to smear the Alliance. In the past, photographs were abused to trick the public into believing that NATO leaders were Satanists. Truthmeter has already covered that story and it can be found here.

Saying that NATO is an “anti-Christ’s army” is pretentious and arbitrary, unsubstantiated with facts because the NATO Alliance is not connected with a religious army, and soldiers can become NATO troops regardless of their religious background.

On 1 March 2007 in Brussels, the address of the former Secretary General of NATO, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer specified the following:

“Allow me, at this point, to say a few more words about the interrelationship between values and interests. The transatlantic community is a community based on the Judaeo-Christian Humanist tradition. And I am certainly not the first to observe that much of what NATO is doing these days is to engage in regions of predominantly Muslim belief. In Bosnia, and later in Kosovo, NATO used force to protect innocent civilians most of whom were Muslims. And NATO’s largest military operation today takes place in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. Not surprisingly, perhaps, some observers, Christians, and Muslims alike, have questioned NATO’s motivation. Is NATO’s agenda an attempt to impose distinct Western values on non-Western societies? Are we trying to re-shape the world in our image? Ladies and gentlemen, nothing could be further from the truth,” said Jaap de Hoop Scheffer in his address.

He added:

“Yes, NATO is an association of Western countries. Yes, with the exception of secular Muslim Turkey, NATO is predominantly an Alliance of Christian countries. Each December, the NATO compound here in Brussels is illuminated by a huge Christmas tree. But the values that NATO stands for are not uniquely Christian. The values that we promote and defend through our engagement are universal values. The right of women to go to school is a universal right. The right to choose your own religion, and not having to fear the death penalty for doing so, is a universal right. The right to elect your democratic government in a free and fair election is a universal right. These are the values we are defending, from the Balkans to Afghanistan. They are non-negotiable. But they are neither uniquely Western, nor are they uniquely Christian. Indeed, I believe that countries from all parts of the globe, and from all major religions, should be able to agree on them. For they are the true foundation for mankind’s survival in the 21st century” he said, inter alia, in his address.

For a longer period, anti-West and anti-NATO propaganda has been undertaken, thereby satanizing these organizations with no arguments whatsoever. This especially intensified after NATO condemned Russia’s brutal and unprovoked war of aggression against Ukraine – which is an independent and democratic country and a close NATO partner. NATO and Allies continue to provide support to Ukraine, helping it to uphold its fundamental right to self-defense.

The propaganda narrative with the hate speech “fag*ot pedophile European Union” is also persistent on the internet area to discredit the EU. However, the values advocated by the EU cannot be further away from the legalization of pedophilia. Quite the opposite, pedophilia is a criminal offense in all EU member states.

According to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, article 34 specifies that governments should protect children from sexual exploitation and sexual abuse, including by people forcing children to have sex for money, or making sexual pictures or films of them. Child pornography is punishable and represents a criminal offense throughout Europe. The fact that European countries provide for the right to sexual determination is abused by the post we are fact-checking and used as hate speech against the LGBT community to humiliate this group. On top of that, voters using their Constitutional right to free political willpower are insulted and called “lobotomized”.

Due to all of the above-noted facts, the post is assessed as untrue. It gathers together several untrue narratives about the EU and NATO, thereby spreading hate speech, calls for violence, and even death.
