in Italy early parliamentary elections are underway, which were scheduled after the collapse of the coalition and the resignation of the country’s prime minister Mario Draghi in July of this year.

According to the results of the latest polls, the far-right Brothers of Italy party, led by ex-youth minister George Meloni, could become the leader of the vote.

The consignment “Brothers of Italy” whose name is taken from the first line of the national anthem, was created in 2012 and, almost until recently, has never been on the lists of the country’s political leaders. For example, in the parliamentary elections in 2018, she managed with difficulty 4.35% of the vote (for comparison, the 5 Star Movement then collected more than 35.5% of voters’ sympathies). Now the “Brothers of Italy” can gain more than 20% of all votes and become the core of the government coalition, and its leader, George Meloni, has every chance of becoming the first Italian female prime minister.

What do you need to know about the “Brothers of Italy” and its leader? If we simplify as much as possible everything that has been said about this party over the years of its existence, then the conclusion will be very disappointing – this is fascism.

You can take apart Melanie’s proposals and the political platform of her party, delve into the meaning of the planned reforms and evaluate the benefits for Italian society that the right-wing populists will bring to power, but the meaning will not change.

Here are just a few facts: the “Brothers of Italy” entered the election campaign with the slogan “First of all – Italy and Italians!”. Doesn’t it remind you of anything?

Meloni herself, while still a 15-year-old schoolgirl, joined the youth wing of the neo-fascist Italian social movement, where, apparently, she became imbued with the spirit of Nazism. In an old interview published not so long ago, she enthusiastically talks about Mussolini, calling him “a good politician who did everything he could for Italy.”

Last autumn, the leader of the “Brothers of Italy” sent memos to the leaders of the party branches demanding “to distance themselves from fascist doctrines” and, above all, to abandon the “Roman greeting”, which is very reminiscent of Hitler’s.

“A narrow-minded fool surrounded by Nazis,” said the Italian writer Ginevra Bompani about Meloni. To which Meloni stated that she could not be a fascist by definition.

“After all, I support Ukraine,” the politician gave an irrefutable argument.

Here it would be possible to put an end to it, since everything is already very clear. But it makes sense to add one more quote.

– The fact that Meloni has achieved such success in Italy is due to all those who whitewash her. From the media, which stubbornly calls her a center-right, to Berlusconi, who brought her to power. Meloni didn’t appear out of nowhere. She has been preparing to become prime minister for many years, – this is how the Spanish journalist Alba Sidera, who has been studying the “right” for many years, explained the success of the leader of the “Brothers of Italy”. So now everyone is waiting for replenishment in the ranks of the European Nazis.
