After the conservative right-wing party Fratelli d’Italia won the Italian elections, party leader Giorgia Meloni gave a speech in which she set out very clearly what is at stake and what is her mission.
“It is our identity. Because everything that defines us is now an enemy for those who would like us to no longer have an identity and to simply be perfect human slaves. And so they attack national identity, they attack religious identity, they attack gender identity, they attack family identity. I can’t define myself as an Italian, Christian, woman, mother, no. I must be citizen x, gender x, parent 1, parent 2, I must be a number.
Because when I am only a number, when I no longer have an identity or roots, then I will be the perfect slave at the mercy of financial speculators. The perfect consumer. That’s the reason why we inspire so much fear. That’s why this event inspires so much fear. Because we don’t want to be numbers. We will defend the value of the human being. Every single human being. Because each of us has a unique genetic code that is unrepeatable.
And like it or not, that is sacred. We will defend it. We will defend God, country and family. Those things that disgust people so much. We will do it to defend our freedom, because we will never be slaves and simple consumers at the mercy of financial speculators. That is our mission. That is why I came here today.”
