Will the New Prime Minister of Italy Giorgia Meloni Please Stand Up!


 

Let us not let the branding of the new Prime Minister of Italy Giorgia Meloni as some far right threat to the world go unanswered.   She has taken on the E.U. For her troubles, she is and will be under constant attack. After all in an earlier post this week her policies were threatened by the one and only European Commission head Von der Leyden

Italy Tells E.U. Head Where to Go – Elects Meloni, Defies Threats

European Commission Chief Ursula von der Leyen threatened Italy last week before their national elections. Von der Leyen warned Italian voters that the European Union has ways to deal with rogue states that represent their people and ignore the globalist agenda.

We have to ask just which one of these women is a threat to the world?

Giorgia Meloni

 

She straightens out Macron who is much in the need of straightening out.

Even her rival defies the description of her as the next Mussolini. 

Former liberal Prime Minister of Italy Matteo Renzi has dismissed alarmist claims in the global media that incoming Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is a “danger to democracy”, telling CNN “the idea that now there is a risk of fascism in Italy is absolutely fake news.”

“Personally, I was against Giorgia Meloni. I’m not her best friend. We grew up together in politics, but we are, and will be, rivals, always,” said Renzi, who served as Prime Minister of Italy for nearly three years until December 2016, and is the leader of the liberal “Italia Viva” party.

Elsewhere in the interview, Renzi mentioned that he is “exactly the opposite of Giorgia Meloni, because she is a sovereigntist and I’m for Europe” [the European Union].

The international media has been quick to compare her to wartime fascist leader Mussolini, a serious allegation. Yet as Renzi’s comments demonstrate, not even Meloni’s own opposition inside Italy believes this to be true.

Indeed, there are genuine neo-fascists in Italy — like Casapound — but they get so little support at the ballot box they have now given up contesting elections as a waste of time and money.

The best of the swamp today.

    And here’s the larger context of the Chesterton quote:
    “The great march of mental destruction will go on. Everything will be denied. Everything will become a creed. It is a reasonable position to deny the stones in the street; it will be a religious dogma to assert them. It is a rational thesis that we are all in a dream; it will be a mystical sanity to say that we are all awake. Fires will be kindled to testify that two and two make four. Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in summer. We shall be left defending, not only the incredible virtues and sanities of human life, but something more incredible still, this huge impossible universe which stares us in the face. We shall fight for visible prodigies as if they were invisible. We shall look on the impossible grass and the skies with a strange courage. We shall be of those who have seen and yet have believed.”

      Well, of course, I haven’t run this through the committee, but at first blush, I would say that both creatures are dark-hearted denizens of the communist left not to be left unattended with an innocent society. I agree with you that Von der Leyen is further along in her agenda; I am not convinced that Hillary isn’t planning on a catch-up move. But given that both Peter and Kid keep an autographed picture of Hillary on their bedside tables … which on its own is very disturbing, I’m guessing that Ursula is the scariest of all. Anticipate an explosion of sorts in four, three, two …

        In the early 60’s my mom had a German friend Ursula, brought here as a war bride. She had a son Clifton and a daughter Bettina both born here. Clifton was not circumcised. She explained to my mom who then told my brother and I she believed that Hitler was still alive and when Germany conquered the US she didn’t want them thinking Clifton was Jewish. She was an educated woman, a CPA, working in the city. Old beliefs die hard.

    When one lives in a bubble it is easy to fall for the false conclusion that the center of the universe coincides with the center of one’s bubble. This is the problem with the Left in general and the Progressive New Left (Cultural Marxist) in particular. They assume anyone outside of their experience is an extremist when in fact their centers are far off the mark of the greater culture. Italy is a socially conservative society molded primarily by the Roman Catholic Church. Those who reject faith are liable to overlook the foundation of a faith based culture. And that is the case with the Neomarxists of the European Union (aka Fifth Reich). When my center is your extreme or vice versa it is easy to engage in verbal firefights where we talk past each other. As in the case of the US, the political elites of the EU have one common flaw: We no longer hold any truths to be self evident.

    I’m firmly in Giorgia Meloni’s corner. She is exactly what the world needs – someone to shake sense into the morons both in Europe and yes, here, too. I would like to see Italy withdraw from the European Union … because not even Meloni can fix that broken heap. And, after we rid ourselves of Biden (Please, God ….) I’d be happy with a new economic world order with the US, UK, Italy, Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic becoming the EU’s primary competitors. A new trading block … one that won’t waste “the people’s money” by placing Greta Thornberg on a throne of nonsense and following the foolishness of the new green pathway to economic ruin.

    C’mon Peter … hand gestures? She’s Italian!!!

    Meanwhile with KHO on our side Italy’s woman (can we call it that) prime minister ain’t all that. At yesterday’s speech Karmala (sounds Italian) just told the world’s media that the US has a strong and enduring close working relationship with North Korea. When Biden steps down next year she will be leading the free world. If that doesn’t give you a warm and fuzzy nothing will.

    So what will the EU do now that Italy has elected someone who stands up for their own national identity, God, and family? Will they draw nearer to Russia?

    I think she IS standing up.
    And her opponent sounds Trumpish:
    “She is my rival and we will continue to fight each other, but the idea that now there is a risk of fascism in Italy is absolutely fake news.” —Renzi
    Telling CNN they are Fake News.
