I think you mean when the EU overlords give directives and then the slave countries are forced to manipulate language and law to make those directives legal in their nations.

Hyperbole? Only sorta.

Directives of the "EU overlords" have to be accepted by the Council of the European Union, which represents the "slave countries".

Oh, you mean the non-elected social club for European elites? Yeah, part of the problem.

The last time I checked ministers are part of national governments which are (indirectly, depending on the specific country) elected.
