Giorgia Meloni “For God, Country & Family!”editor
From The Spectator, 25 September, 2022…
As Italians prepare to vote in today’s general election, the European Union has issued a warning – making clear that it stands ready to act.
Giorgia Meloni, leader of the Brothers of Italy party, is widely expected to become prime minister at the head of a right-wing coalition. At an event in Princeton University, Ursula Von der Leyen, the EU president, said she is watching. ‘If things go in a difficult direction, I’ve spoken about Hungary and Poland, we have tools,’ she said.
So the unelected Ms Von der Leyen is talking about what she might do if confronted by Meloni being elected and getting ‘difficult’. The ‘tools’ she refers to are those used to withhold funds from Hungary and Poland for alleged violations of what the European Court of Justice has termed the EU’s ‘common values such as the rule of law and solidarity’, mainly in respect of the judiciary and media. That an unelected EU Commission should punish democratically elected governments in Hungary and Poland for failing to uphold common values is extraordinary – that it should threaten to do so in Italy if Meloni is elected and does not behave is outrageous. Continues…
After watching Giorgia Meloni’s inspiring address to the Family Congress (2019) it’s not difficult to work out why she’s being labelled a “far right extremist” by the mainstream media, and why the EU is issuing warnings about acting to put an end to her (very good) influence. I say “very good” assuming that her fiery words translate into matching actions. Pay close attention to the subtitles as you watch the video because she is a very surprising person indeed: not married, herself (Wiki refers to her “partner”) she supports marriage, recognising it as the most important basis for a healthy society. She also holds “socially conservative” (i.e., moral) beliefs on abortion and euthanasia and is not totally flying the rainbow flag, so she could probably benefit from our prayers if, as expected, she becomes Italy’s first woman Prime Minister. It won’t be easy to hold firm to those “socially conservative” views – that’s a given – so let’s remember her in our prayers, at this time.
The “Far Right” tag is just used to dismiss true conservative voices (as opposed to conservative-in-name-only parties like the leftists at Westminster). With Meloni, Orban and Le Pen and the election in Sweden it looks like at least some of the good folk on the continent have had enough of the globalist agenda.
Sadly, under our system, we’re stuck with two electable Westminster parties that are indistinguishable from each other (once the panto is disregarded) and dictatorial narcissists with an iron grip on the devolved assemblies.
God, pro-family, pro-life and strong border control policies don’t get a look-in here.
I think the globalist agenda is unravelling now, with people becoming better informed about the lockdowns, vaccines etc. There’s still a way to go but I don’t think the WEF/Davos cabal are going to get their way as easily as they imagined.
Regarding your final sentence, you are so correct. That is why I was so disappointed with the weak attitude on abortion of the Scottish Family Party. I entered into email correspondence with the man who leads that Party (name escapes me for the moment) but I couldn’t convince him to take the strong openly pro-life approach that Trump had taken, which would be sure to bring great fruits, I have no doubt about it. The truth has its own power. We need someone with the courage of his/her convictions to make an honest case for the basic values. Trying to please everyone just doesn’t work.
She even quoted Chesterton at the end of her victory speech, God love her!
Here’s hoping for a longer tenure as Prime Minister than the rest before her as historically they have very short terms before being ousted.
Prayers for her and the team!
Forgot to include the link to her victory speech:
I’ve not had a chance to listen to this – I note that there is a conversation between commentators before, presumably, we get to the victory speech, so I had to tune out. I will watch asap, though – many thanks for posting.
There’s no victory speech in that video – it’s just a conversation between two men about a few different issues, including the Italian election. I’ve tried to find her victory speech online but there isn’t anything except some news reports with clips. I think they don’t want us to hear that speech, LOL!
Like Nicky, I can’t find her victory speech on YouTube. That’s a pity but she’s getting so much stick in the mainstream media that she’s bound to be an improvement on the kind of “leaders” we see everyone else in Europe, whether on the continental mainland or here in the UK.
As we read in Sacred Scripture (Ecclesiastes 3), there is a time for every purpose under Heaven – so maybe Giorgia Meloni’s time has come (so to speak!) – since the thread has just about died a death, here’s a pleasant reflection on the topic, put to music… Enjoy the peace!
What a beautiful song! And it’s beautifully sung, as well.
I agree, Giorgia Meloni’s time has come – I’m praying she makes a real difference.
Yes, it was great to give that quote from Chesterton, but I wish she had also quoted the Russian dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn “Men have forgotten God. That’s why all this has happened”. If she’d put that at the end of her list of social disorders, that would have been powerful, as well.
I hope she gets in – if only to challenge the EU, but the EU will definitely try and scupper her. But Italy, as a Catholic country, is pretty much over. There seems little or no appetite to stop the pro abortion / contraception / LGBT agendas. The churches are empty and Catholic parents are not having many children (if any). Sweden is lurching to the Right because of the immigration / crime issue. I wonder if the same issue is fuelling her success in Italy? I was last in Rome in 2000 and it was becoming problematic then. I had two narrow escapes myself. One from a Middle Eastern who tried to snatch my rucksack, the other from Eastern Europeans who tried to pick my pocket. I dread to think what it’s like now.
That’s what I think – it’s great that she’s won, if only to challenge the EU. Just like the WEF/Davos cabal is unravelling, I think the EU is disintegrating. It’s all falling apart and none of them can do a thing about it, LOL!
I just hope she gets real about her “Christian faith” and realises she can’t be cohabiting and claim to be a Christian who cares about “God, country and family” – she has to either get married or end her cohabiting relationship.
Saw a twitter feed with subtitles re her. I could understand as to why Italians voted for her. She was quite interesting re her views, anti person, anti gender, anti family that EU created it in some countries like ours. Bosses in Brussels won’t like it cos she spoke the truth of what’s happening on the ground pushed by politicians cosseted by EU bigwigs such as loss of identity re gender, anti family et al. It was the first time I understood her to where she was coming from. Interesting politician in present time right now.
She is definitely an interesting politician right now, because she is saying the opposite of what the rest of them are saying, her policies tune with what most people believe, in Italy (and everywhere else in Europe, IMHO).
Here is an interesting bit of information about Meloni that IMHO is worth the read.
I’ve just read that link – it is fantastic. What a powerful article, and I am even more confident that the new PM of Italy will expose the scandalous truth about the way Covid was used to terrorise us. I hope she keeps to her word to launch an investigation first thing, in her new position. Thank God for her. It was Italy that was used to launch the terror against us, so it would be great if Italy could be used to expose the truth and make sure the past two years never happens again.
Many thanks for posting that excellent article – I’ve just found this one, which is also great. I’ve copied the following extract, which made me smile…
“Far-Right now translates as “anyone I don’t agree with who is, ergo, not a nice person”. Reporting for Channel 4 News on the recent clashes in Leicester between groups of Hindus and Muslims, Darshna Soni attributed the violence to “Right-wing ideology politics imported from the sub-continent”. It made a change from blaming Brexit, I suppose.”
Georgia Meloni is, to me, a bit of an enigma. Perhaps I am being too critical, but there have been a few indicators recently that she is not all that she seems to be.. The somewhat non-chalant references to her “partner” that we have seen for some time are a bit worrisome in that there is an apparent disconnect between her personal life and her public positions on marriage. Also, a couple of weeks ago, when a homosexual agitator stormed her dais with the LGBT flag, she reverted to “you have your opinion and I have mine; we can have different opinions” rather than educating him on his sexual confusion. The setting would have been perfect, in my thinking, for giving all in the audience (and her rude intruder) a brief tutorial on marriage.
Finally — and I can’t remember when this occurred but I think it was very recent — she was being interviewed by a journalist with the periodical Israel Today, when she offered, in one of her responses, unqualified support for Israel, without mentioning the sad situation of the Palestinian Christians, who are treated as third-class citizens after Jews and Muslims. When I visited the Holy Land for two weeks — admittedly thirty years ago — I was struck by the plight of the Christians who I met in various places there. Since that time, it has only gotten worse, especially in places like Nazareth which is now majority Muslim. The Israeli government has continued its oppression of Christians, which began in the 30s as Jews returning from the diaspora literally took over homes of Christians in places like Ein Karim (home of St. John the Baptist where the Visitation took place). Here in the Spokane area, Christian Palestinian emigrees still carry, several decades later, the keys to the homes from which they were evicted (by Jews who claimed primacy) before leaving the Holy Land.
So, perhaps it is just the way of politicians, but it would be refreshing to see someone who will step up and practice what they preach while addressing these matters. Still, to end on a higher note, I am (as they say at Foggy Bottom, home of the State Department) “cautiously optimistic” about Georgia Meloni.
I see what you mean, and I’m also disappointed that she is cohabiting and had a child out of wedlock, but I was pleased to see her saying that for the health of society, marriage is necessary, or words to that effect. It’s something that she didn’t try to justify cohabitation, that would be more worrying. I also agree about the incident with the homosexual person – that was a very weak response but again, it was better than the usual acceptance of the lifestyle.
You are absolutely correct in saying that it would be refreshing to see someone practising what they preach, that would be ideal, but in the circumstances, she’s the next best thing. I just hope she grows more courageous and maybe decides to get married to set the example.
“Cautiously optimistic” is a good place to be, LOL! I’m with you on that one!
I understand your concerns, but as Josephine says, Georgia Meloni is a notch up from those who try to justify living in sin of one kind or another. That’s why I think we ought to storm Heaven for special graces for her because she is a clear thinker (just not about her own contradictory life choices!) and her skills as a powerful public speaker are in no doubt. She could be a wonderful force for good if only the disconnect of which you speak (between her personal life and her public endorsement of marriage) could be rectified.
Like many others, she would be absolutely on the right road and playing a leading role in the world, but for the dreadful apostasy engulfing the Church. The bad priests and prelates, right up to and including Pope Francis, will have a great deal of explaining to do at their judgment. But for them, people like Meloni would be solidly Catholic – I have no doubt about that. Right now, though, as one very good Protestant Minister once wrote to me, there is simply nothing to attract “outsiders” into the Church. Nothing.
I think this is a positive, despite her contradictory personal lifestyle. She’s admitting she’s got it wrong and wants the country to take note and appreciate the importance of marriage. I vote to give her a chance. This could end up being big.
It’s incredible to see the msm tying Georgia Meloni to Mussolini and Fascism. The Christian Post covers it differently but all the msm outlets are trying like mad to discredit her.
Trump was by no means a saint himself, but he started taking things in the right direction for his country. God writes straight with crooked lines, they say . . . maybe Meloni will turn out to be the female Trump. I hope she doesn’t suffer the same fate (i.e. booted out at a rigged election)
That’s a great comparison. If Meloni turns out to be a female Trump, that would be wonderful. As you say, “God writes straight with crooked lines”. This is why the enemies of truth and goodness hate her.
I sent the link to this blog to a friend in Glasgow (not a Catholic) and he replies as follows:
Thank you. I had seen a shorter version, but this is very good indeed. I would swap her for our FM in a trice! I very much hope that she will be able to stand firm and gain support, even as no doubt the EU and the entire woke world will try to silence and stop her.
I’ve read quite a bit of comment about her which – from sensible people – is all good.
By way of return, you may be interested in this excellent film just produced on the vaccine harms, including Dr Aseem Malhotra whose recent publications have had at least some media coverage (though not BBC etc of course) and some of my colleagues on HART. Its very well presented, and hopefully the kind of thing easily shareable with those who are still blindly following ‘The Science’.
[Ed: needless to say I, too, would swap Georgia Meloni for our First Minister any day!]
My mother, God rest her saintly soul, used to say that “it is not what they say, it is what they don`t say”.
The News bulletins mentioning Georgi Meloni brought that back to mind with the deliberate omissions
regarding her statements on being a Catholic mother who is against abortion, euthanasia, same sex
“marriage” and the like. They would rather concentrate on her alleged fascism and compare her to Mussolini
When they report on child abuse within the Church there are always images of a crucifix, a Sacred Heart picture or one of Our Lady during the commentary, or a still of an abandoned convent or monastery. All a brainwashing that actually works in the same way as subliminal advertising.
They talk nowadays of “empowering” people. Maybe she`ll empower those amongst us who have the same feelings as her to be brave enough now to speak out about it.
I can see Ms Meloni getting the same treatment as Trump or Johnson but I`m confident she might even relish it. I think she will be game enough for a fight.
To paraphrase Pope Benedict, let`s pray that she doesn`t succumb to the wolves. There will be plenty of them sniffing around.
While we are at it, we should also pray for Cardinal Zen.
Well said, Frankier.
Our last conversation about Cardinal Zen was on the occasion of his arrest
As soon as we have the outcome of his trial, we’ll launch a new discussion. In the meantime, as you so rightly suggest, we should pray for him.
The wealthiest Italians voted left, the middle and working class voted right? What a shock, mes amis…he said with tongue in ze cheek…
I didn’t know you could speak Italian, LOL!
It’s no surprise that the rich voted against Meloni – it’s the same here, all the time. The people who are out of touch with reality, vote for the politicians who are out of touch with reality. The well-off want to keep being well-off and they don’t care about the rest of us. That’s why the ordinary people are so frustrated. We have common sense values but are called extremists!
I’ve now watched the 2019 speech and it is marvellous. Pure common sense. She is in touch with reality, with real people, and that’s why she’s won. I hope they don’t rig some way to get rid of her.
Uh-oh, support for Ukraine: not a good sign:
