The Sqwark on Newsnight was suggesting that the spirit of Mussolini was riding again across the Italian landscape as the anti-immigration debate hots up in Italy due to the invasion of thousands upon thousands of economic migrants being shipped in by NGOs….the Spectator doesn’t adopt the same narrative that the BBC does, it takes a more balanced and impartial look at what is going on….
Amid relentless propaganda about Italy being in the grip of fascism, Italians go to the polls on Sunday. It will be an attempt to produce their first elected prime minister since 2008, when Silvio Berlusconi won. Since his resignation in 2011, Italy has had four unelected leaders.
Italy’s migrant crisis has dominated these elections, especially after the discovery of the chopped-up remains of an 18-year-old Italian girl in two suitcases by the side of a road in the picturesque hilltop city of Macerata in Le Marche. Three Nigerian migrants are in custody for the murder. And in revenge, a 28-year-old fascist lunatic drove around Macerata opening fire on black people at random, wounding six (none fatally). He then gave himself up to police.
What happened in Macerata transformed Italy’s migrant crisis, already a big factor, into la questione numero uno of the election campaign, despite massive efforts inside and outside Italy to use it instead to talk only about fascists.
The Italian left and a largely supportive global media are doing their best to brainwash Italians into thinking that a vote for the right is a vote for fascism. But neither Italy’s right, nor the Italians, are fascists. What they are is fed up with the floods of illegal migrants coming into Italy, where they represent what Berlusconi has described as a ‘social bomb about to explode’.
What we get from the BBC instead is its usual refusal to accept that massive, uncontrolled immigration will destroy Europe…it prefers to bury its head in the sand and spread alarm about Fascists allegedly on the march….if they are then they are a creation of the BBC and its ilk.
