The “Pop” Revolution is Beginning in Italy By James Reed
Few of us read/speak Italian, and the news from Italy is highly filtered, but basically the EU New World Order elites have come down on the populist elected government because the elites want endless immigration as part of their program to demographically displace white Europeans. Here, though, is the mainstream story, with the line that reveals all: “The Establishment Strikes Back”:
“The leaders of Italy’s two main populist parties appeared to be throwing down a gauntlet at Europe last week, forming an anti-establishment government that they imagined would act on their staunchly anti-Brussels agenda. But on Sunday, Italian President Sergio Mattarella picked that gauntlet up and delivered his own challenge. Mattarella, who holds rarely used veto power over cabinet ministers, blocked the appointment of 81-year-old Paolo Savona as finance minister, citing Savona’s long-held opposition to the euro. Neither of the two parties forming Italy’s coalition government — the anti-establishment Five Star Movement and the ultranationalist League — had campaigned on exiting the single currency, and Mattarella suggested he was acting in the country’s interests by vetoing Savona.
“The adhesion to the euro is a choice of fundamental importance for the perspectives of our country and our youth,” he said. “If you want to talk about it, we need to do it openly and with a serious, in-depth analysis.” But the populists offered no alternative replacement, and their would-be government has quickly collapsed. Giuseppe Conte, the inexperienced academic tapped to become prime minister, gave up his mandate on Sunday. Mattarella then asked Carlo Cottarelli, a former official at the International Monetary Fund, to lead a technocratic caretaker government while a new election is arranged.
This time round the Italian people need to fight as never before and make it a decisive victory for populism. Begin with street protests and show the rest of the West that the cosmopolitans can be beaten.
