International Women’s Day? A member of the the European Parliament, Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke said that women should earn less because they “are weaker, smaller and less intelligent”! On another occasion, the European (?) Korwin-Mikke had made the Nazi salute in the EP chamber. Let’s have the EP send this sexist hater back to the village he came from. After all it is us, the European women and citizens, who pays his thick tax-free salary plus benefits.
Sign the petition to the President of the EU Parliament and to all MEPs:
“We ask the European Parliament to suspend the Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke following his hateful remarks about women and migrants, and after making a Nazi salute in the chamber. These acts are in violation of the Parliament’s rules and betray the values of the entire EU which our Parliament is elected to defend.”
A member of the European Parliament just said that women should earn less because they “are weaker, smaller and less intelligent”! If we act right now, we can kick this hater out.
This same Polish MEP has used the Parliament to spread hate: comparing migrants to “excrements” and making a Nazi salute in the chamber! So far he has been sanctioned with symbolic fines, but now Parliament is running an investigation and if enough of us ask for his full suspension, we can make it happen.
The decision could come *any moment*. Sign now, and for International Women’s Day today, let’s urge our MEPs to kick this sexist, racist hater out of Parliament.
Janusz Ryszard Korwin-Mikke, 74, is a Polish politician and writer, and the founder of the right-wing libertarian and Eurosceptic political party Coalition for the Renewal of the Republic – Liberty and Hope.
The Polish MEP had been caught on camera telling shocked MEPs: “Women must earn less than men because they are weaker, smaller and less intelligent. They must earn less, that’s all.”
On the International Women’s Day, host Piers Morgan invited Korwin-Mikke on his show Good Morning Britain. Morgan attacked the Polish MEP live on air over his sexist views calling him a “horrendous sexist pig“.
After demanding to know why the politician had made those comments, Piers got steadily more angry at Korwin-Mikke’s views.
“I only said that because they are shorter, they are weaker and less intelligent they are less aggressive, they earn less,” said the Polish lawmaker.
“By the way, a shorter man earns less than a tall man. The blonde earns more than a brunette. They are different, and it should not be equalised.”
He then turned to ‘science’ in a bid to back up his claims, explaining that “it is proved” women are “less intelligent by several points on the IQ scale”.
At one point during the fraught exchange, Piers told him that he was a “horrendous sexist pig” – prompting Korwin-Mikke to brand Piers an “idiot” for not believing in science.
Due to his provocative statements from Holocaust to Paralympics and from rape to Nazi salute, the sexist, racist and fascist MEP has been fined and suspended several times by the European Parliament.
Now it’s time he goes home for good.
