Giorgia Meloni will be Italy’s first female prime minister after her party, Centro Desta, obtained 43% of the overall vote.
Affiliated with Centro Desta is a faction of the coalition known as the Fratelli d’Italia, which was founded by Meloni in 2012.
Fratelli d’Italia, translating to “Brothers of Italy” in English, won only 4.4% of the vote in 2018.
But that number skyrocketed to upwards of 26%, making it the largest political party in the country.
“Italy has chosen us, and we won’t betray her,” Meloni vowed to the press. She also assured her supporters that once in power, her party will “govern for everyone.”
“Ultraconservative values, anti-immigration, and nationalism,” are the three words Rosa Balfour, director of Carnegie Europe, used to describe what Giorgia Meloni stands for.
Let’s all hope Mitch McConnell is taking notes. We need plenty of that stateside, and on the double.
Centro Desta doesn’t quite have the necessary congressional numbers to alter Italy’s constitution, but they do possess a majority in both their Senate and Chamber of Deputies.
Italy, which boasts the EU’s third-largest economy, joins another European nation seemingly starved to return to the conservative ways of old.
Election results from last week made The Sweden Democrats Party the largest conservative party in the nation and the second biggest party overall.
Party leader Jimmie Akesson often promises to “make Sweden good again” and to “put Sweden first.” Sound familiar?
The explanation for the nearly identical messaging is globalism, a threat that’s alive and well. Globalism explains why it’s not only American corporations conforming to the Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) nonsense.
The entire world is in lockstep with this ESG insanity. Global coordination of that magnitude is unprecedented and globalism is the only explanation.
The bright side is that it means American conservatives aren’t alone in the fight for the values we hold dear.
It’s great to see countries around the world taking positive steps towards normalcy. Let’s remain optimistic that American conservatives will have good reason to celebrate following the crucial November midterms.
