Giorgia Meloni stunned the global political establishment when her populist-nationalist Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) swept into power on Sunday.
The ascension of Meloni and her right-wing block ushered out the reign of Prime Minister Draghi’s socialist and globalist government. Mario Draghi, the former head of the European Central Bank, presided over the European Union’s open borders policies that flooded Italy with migrants and a draconian Covid pandemic response that decimated small businesses and ignited popular uprisings. It was a volatile mix — and one that was due to combust.
And combust it did, along with international political observers who likened Meloni’s rise to the second coming of Mussolini, a purportedly ‘fascist’ reawakening on a European continent that has been predominately run by socialists for decades.
Except that Meloni has disavowed fascism, and not even the openly left-wing Guardian is willing to tarnish her with that cynical label of ‘fascist,’ which has become yet another catchall for any political viewpoint opposed to socialism, no matter how antithetical to fascism it may be.
The media bombast is an immediate indicator that Meloni must have something to say. That she does.

At the World Congress of Families in March 2019, Meloni unleashed a sweeping indictment of the globalists’ war on national, religious, and family identity. Her electrifying speech has captured the imagination of international observers craving ideologically based pushback to a culturally hegemonic regime that aims to strip human beings of their personal identities and render them no more than numbers for the global ruling class to manipulate.
One listen to the future Italian prime minister and you will quickly come to understand why the global elites fear her so much. Watch:
“Please answer me these questions,” she said, as translated from Italian. “This is about what we are doing here today.”
“Why is the family an enemy?” she asked. “Why is the family so frightening? There is a single answer to all these questions. Because it defines us. Because 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 consumer slaves,” she continued. “And so they attack national identity, they attack religious identity, they attack gender identity, they attack family identity.”
“I can’t define myself as Italian, Christian, woman, mother. No,” she said.
“I must be citizen x, gender x, parent 1, parent 2,” she continued. “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 reazson why… that’s the reason why we inspire so much fear,” she added. “That’s why this event inspires so much fear. Because we do not 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,” Meloni said. “We will defend God, country, and family.”
“Those things that disgust people so much,” she went on. “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.”
“Chesterton wrote, more than a century ago… ‘Fires will be kindled to testify that two and two makes four. Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in the summer’,” she said. “That time has arrived. We are ready. Thank you.”
The World Congress of Families (Congresso Mondiale delle Famiglie) was held in Verona, Italy from in March, 2019. The conference to promote Christian family values drew 20,000 protesters who blasted the event as ‘homophobic’ and intended to ‘restrict women’s freedom.’ Some argued the Christian organizers wanted to ‘take Italy back to the Middle Ages.’
In the wake of Meloni’s victory in the parliamentary elections, the video of her 2019 speech has gone viral on social media. Indeed, it is evident from her message why the political establishment fears Giorgia Meloni, and the coming storm of politicians like her sweeping elections around the globe.
