Skip to comments.Italy poised for hard-right leader as country votes in snap election
Posted on 09/25/2022 4:49:21 AM PDT by McGruff
Italians head to the polls Sunday in a nationwide vote that could return the country’s first female prime minister and the first government led by the far-right since the end of World War II.
Giorgia Meloni’s Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) party was created in 2012, but has its roots in Italy’s 20th century neo-fascist movement that emerged after the death of fascist leader Benito Mussolini in 1945.
After winning 4% of the vote in 2018′s election, it has used its position in opposition to springboard into the mainstream. The Brothers of Italy party is expected to gain the largest share of the vote for a single party on Sunday. Polls prior to a blackout on Sept. 9 showed that it’s been getting almost 25% of the vote, far ahead of its nearest right-wing ally Lega.

hard right=anyone who disagrees with the communists
Am I getting warm?
Still looking for “hard left” as it exists in the U.S., Germany, China, Russia.....and more.
Somehow, the media has not yet found it.
Shove it, media. No sensible person follows you any more.
To the media, anyone who is not a socialist or communist in Europe is far-right.
And it’s the same here.
Hey, at least they didn’t call it a sham election ahead of time.
Molto bene Italia!
“Still looking for “hard left” as it exists in the U.S., Germany, China, Russia.....and more.”
Look no further.
U.S.: Democrat Party
Germany: NAZI Party
Russia: Communist Party
Italy: Fascist Party.
Until Italy has the self-discipline to live within its means, the EU will have Italy by its short hairs.
One way or another.
Hard right? What does that mean? When does NBC ever use the term “hard left”?
Are you calling Comcast Communists?
You’re right....... they are
On a related note, an interesting article from January. Intetesting timimg...
Note to the UK: You've got a Deep State, too, and it doesn't want Brexit. If you lot don't finishing leaving ASAP, prepare to be left holding the bag when the Ponzi scheme that it the EU goes bust.
‘Mother, Italian, Christian’: Giorgia Meloni, Italy’s far-right leader on the cusp of power
Giorgia Meloni has successfully rebranded her Brothers of Italy party as the country’s dominant conservative force, without fully expunging its post-fascist roots. Her right-wing coalition is forecast to glide into power after Sunday’s general election, making her the favourite to become Italy’s first female prime minister – and its first far-right premier of the postwar era.
The coda to Meloni’s “Christian mother” harangue, which she repeated word for word in Spanish at a rally in support of Spain’s extreme-right party last year, underscores the fears of an arch-conservative camp that feels under siege in a globalised, fast-changing world.
In Meloni’s mind, the besieging forces include immigration, Islam, European integration, “woke ideologies” and what she describes as “LGBT lobbies”. It’s a view she shares with the likes of Hungary’s Viktor Orban, whom she has strenuously defended in his tussles with Brussels over democracy and the rule of law.
hard right = someone who will put the interests of the country before the interests of the globalist elite.
The Italian Electorate is impressive to put a Conservative into office.
