Fox News host Tucker Carlson laid out reasons why Giorgia Meloni won Sunday’s election in Italy during his show Monday evening.
“You can’t tell people they are in charge of their own government — ‘It’s a democracy, we promise!’ — and ignore over decades their strongly held opinions on things that matter. That doesn’t work long-term. They will rebel, guaranteed,” Carlson said. “The best you can hope for is they do it peacefully. In Italy they seem to be doing that. This summer, a conservative populist called Giorgia Meloni started showing up with strong support in the polls.”
Carlson noted that European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen made comments that some Italian politicians took as a threat. Italian voters over the potential of Meloni winning the election. Meloni’s coalition won 45% of the vote in Sunday’s election, Reuters reported. (RELATED: Italy’s Presumptive Prime Minister Is Already Sending Liberals Into Fits Of Hysteria)
“My approach is that whatever democratic government is willing to work with us, we’re working together,” von der Leyen said Thursday, according to Reuters. “If things go in a difficult direction, I’ve spoken about Hungary and Poland, we have tools.”
“Oh, if things go in the wrong direction — in other words, if voters disobey, we have tools. Oh you do, do ya? Well, that sounds like a threat, of course, because it is a threat. It turns out that Italians are so desperate, they no longer care, they are not afraid. They are not afraid because neoliberalism, which that lady is espousing, has destroyed their country,” Carlson said. “Energy prices in some places in Italy are up 400% over last year. Why? A pointless war in Ukraine and self-destructive climate policy. It’s not an accident, and everyone knows it.”
