The Reason Why the Left Isn’t Celebrating Italy’s New Female Leader

FANTASTIC news! Italy will be governed for the first time in its history by a woman, who reached the position by her talent and merits. Yes, the news should provoke the celebration of all the politically correct media in the world, but it has not been the case. Why? It turns out that Giorgia Meloni is right-wing.

Instead, the world’s mainstream media such as CNN, the BBC, or The New York Times is horrified by Meloni’s victory in Italy’s September 25 general election. Meloni, a 45-year-old journalist, leads the Fratelli d’Italia party, which headed the coalition with which the right-wing contested the elections. And, with an overwhelming majority, the right-wing coalition won, which means that for the first time in Italy a woman will preside over the government.

CNN, the BBC, and The New York Times called her “far right” and some media even call her a fascist or compare her to Mussolini. Pathetic. Giorgia Meloni and her party offer nothing more than traditional conservative, nationalist and pro-Western ideas, which are fully in line with what the electorate wanted. Nothing out of this world. But the left-wing press is afraid of everything that is not left-wing and labels it as an enemy.

Giorgia Meloni is part of an important advance guard of conservatism in Europe. A few days ago we saw it in Sweden, on September 12, when the conservative Sweden Democrats won the general elections. The phenomenon includes Spain, with the emergence of Vox; the Hungarian and Polish governments; and other parties gaining strength across the continent. Edgar Beltrán, our editor, wrote more about this in an op-ed column.

Meloni’s triumph is good news. She was the candidate of the businessmen and she has good room for maneuver. With her government she will prove wrong those who painted her as a fascist monster, and that the extreme left is just a ghost invented by the left to justify its disasters.
