Those favoring independence and freedom and populist parties rode concerns over EU forced immigration and the lackluster Italian economy to huge gains in Italy’s parliamentary elections, telling the European Union establishment that their Globalist policies and tyrannical methods are not acceptable.
Leading this pro citizen and pro Italian movement was the Five Star Movement who was the biggest single winner with about a third of the vote, though it will not have enough seats to form a government. A separate coalition comprising the non-globalist League and center-right Forza Italia is set to win most seats in the lower house of parliament, with a combined 37 percent of the vote.
In contrast, the current ruling globalist favoring and EU supporting coalition, composed of the Democratic Party and the liberal More Europe, mustered just 23 percent.
“It’s a fantastic victory which fills us with pride,” League leader Matter Salvini said. He added that Italian voters had “made a step forward to be free from the cages and ties that are bringing back hunger and insecurity in Europe.”
This election made one thing clear: Italian voters are increasingly skeptical of EU control over the country’s immigration and economic policies. It also showed that, far from subsiding, anti-globalist populism is gaining strength across the EU zone. Among the surging anti-globalist parties, Five Star has gained the most from Italy’s populist moment. Founded in 2009 as a response to cronyism in Italian politics, it has won support in poorer regions of southern Italy, building on popular anger over institutional corruption, economic hardship and, most importantly, immigration.
Italy is one of the main entry points into Europe for migrants from Africa, the Middle East and Asia. More than 600,000 migrants have traveled from North Africa to Italian coastal cities since 2013, swamping local communities and stoking resentment against the EU’s asylum policies. Both Five Star and the emerging anti-globalist coalition are proposing anti-EU economic policies to go with immigration reforms. They have promised to fight Brussels-mandated austerity policies and look for alternatives to the remaining in the common currency.
Anti-globalism and anti-EU groups have shown surging strength in most of the European Union’s larger members like Germany, France, and now Italy. Western Europe had fought against an Islamic invasion for centuries and had been successful. After the European Union forced immigration of Islamic refugees that has changed the very face of Europe economically and socially, Europeans are saying we now understand why our ancestors fought so hard to prevent a Muslim invasion. Europeans are now doing everything they can to rid themselves of these Muslim refugees who believe they are owed incomes and refuse to work as they drain the treasuries of the different nations, believe that their barbaric and brutal Sharia law should be imposed on a civilized society, believe it is their right to murder, rape, and pillage, and believe that no go zones are right and proper.
It is these same Muslim refugees that Comrade Obama and his fellow Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) wanted to bring to the United States so these Muslim refugees could impose the same barbarism and economic disaster it has brought to Europe. Comrade Obama was successful in bringing some of his Jihadist brothers, but if Freedom Loving Americans will understand the threat and rid ourselves of the threat, we can minimize the problem.
