Pope Francis "passionately" defended migration yesterday, attacking the new Italian government that was about to take office.
(Rome) Italy will have a new government at the end of October with two firsts: the first government headed by a woman and the first post-war government to be led by a hard-right party. The losers of the September 25th parliamentary elections and the globalist establishment are already mobilizing against this – including Pope Francis.
Italy is facing two firsts
The political earthquake at the recent election was enormous. The right-wing Fratelli d'Italia (Brothers of Italy) achieved a sensational result, becoming by far the strongest political force in Italy with 26 percent. The party, which was only founded in 2012, ran for the first time in 2013 as part of the center-right alliance and did not even get two percent of the votes. In 2018, she managed to jump over the four percent hurdle that applied at the time, albeit only just. The Fratelli d'Italia were then the only parliamentary party not to enter the all-party government of former ECB President Mario Draghi, which Brussels wanted, and who had been installed without elections from above.
The party is led by Giorgia Meloni, who became the youngest-ever minister in Italian history in 2008 in the center-right coalition then led by Silvio Berlusconi. The Fratelli d'Italia is the post-post successor party to the neo-fascist Movimento Sociale Italiano (MSI ), which dissolved in 1994. 1 This distant inheritance will be played against them. The Left Democrats in particular based their election campaign on warning of a "fascist danger", which the voters obviously recognized as discrediting and did not appreciate.
The Fratelli d'Italia is not an anti-system party, because as such they would have no prospect of participating in the government. Meloni is a Realpolitiker who doesn't want to stay in the opposition forever, but is striving for a course like Orbán in Hungary and Trump in the USA. Certain circles do not like strengthening this axis at all.
The warning of the Italian domestic intelligence service
The Italian domestic intelligence agency AISI presented its latest report last week. One copy each went to Prime Minister Draghi, his interior minister and the parliamentary committee for national security COPASIR, which is also the parliamentary control committee for the secret services. The content is secret, but the broad outlines of it quickly became known. The domestic secret service warns of unrest on the streets of an intensity that Italy has not experienced for a long time. According to the secret service, the riots will be sparked by the high electricity and gas bills. The aim of the riots is to overthrow the government of Giorgia Meloni.
Although Meloni's government, backed by a strong majority in parliament from the centre-right coalition she leads, is not even in office yet, certain forces are already looking to overthrow it. But who wants the destabilization of the country?
First and foremost are the losers in the parliamentary elections. The left-wing parties (Left Democrats, Greens and Radical Left), which had previously formed the core of Draghi's government, were voted out. While the moderate left waits, the radical left is preparing for insurrection. The left-wing trade union CGIL, which is close to the left wing of the left-wing democrats and the radical left, started the agitation last Saturday.
In addition to the radical left, former Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte also announced that he would take his Five Star Movement (M5S) to the streets if “citizen money” were to be touched – as the unconditional basic income wanted by the globalists is called in Italy.
The communist partisan movement ANPI wants to blow the "anti-fascist march on Rome" on the centenary of Mussolini 's march on Rome, which aims to place Meloni in line with Benito Mussolini's fascism.
Criticism of the future government is supported by a strong media front, the so-called mainstream. This will become the actual pacemaker. The new government is to be taken into a pincer movement, from above by Brussels, international financial institutions such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund and speculative high finance, and at the same time from below by unrest on Italy's streets. And if her fall doesn't succeed, it's at least about her "discipline."
Italy experienced what that means in 2019, when the Five Star Movement, which had been critical of the EU until then, surprisingly elected Ursula von der Leyen as EU Commission President after the elections to the EU Parliament. According to the then Italian Family Minister Lorenzo Fontana, a traditional Catholic, it was clear that the Five Star Movement had been bought by the establishment and it was only a matter of time before the then government in Rome would be blown up at the behest of the Five Star Movement and the Lega.
In the list of government opponents, left-wing Catholic circles should not be forgotten - Conte made his threat through the Avvenire, the daily newspaper of the Italian bishops - and finally Pope Francis. So far, he has been benevolent towards representatives of the political left, while refusing to meet representatives of the center-right coalition.
The "passionate" defense of migration
One of the main concerns of the new parliamentary majority is the amendment of the immigration law. During the election campaign, Meloni promised to accelerate the repatriation of illegal and criminal immigrants and to tighten asylum regulations. She also called for a naval blockade to North Africa to prevent illegal immigration via the so-called Mediterranean route. The "open door" policy, which encouraged illegal immigration through the tolerated breaking of the law, must end.
Pope Francis opposed this yesterday and remarkably vehemently. In St. Peter's Square yesterday, according to Reuters, he "passionately defended " a right to migrate. That's not exactly what Francis said. He did it a little more subtly, vigorously defending migrants but meaning migration. The exclusion of migrants is "scandalous, disgusting and sinful," said Francis, who had already called on the EU to do so during the "refugee crisis" of 2015: "Take in everyone, good and bad".
The international press agency Reuters became his most influential mouthpiece. Reuters made the direct connection with Giorgia Meloni and her impending formation of a government, and so that the last person would understand what is at stake, Meloni was dubbed in Reuters report a "right-wing extremist". The globalist elite media discredit Meloni across the board in this way, which corresponds to the terminology used by the radical left. “Far Right” denotes a violent extremist right. How far that is from Giorgia Meloni and her Fratelli d'Italia, which are comparable to the AfD in Germany and the FPÖ in Austria and form a common faction in the EU Parliament with the Polish PiS and the Czech ODS, which until their British Conservatives also left, need not be specifically explained.
Pope Francis on a collision course
The example shows how the international public is being “framed” against Meloni – and Pope Francis is (once again) a frontline actor working towards this strategy. Yesterday, Francis embarked on an open collision course with the next Italian government, which is not yet in office. No grace period, no willingness to talk, and no openness. He's already erecting walls around the Vatican in advance, avoiding the otherwise vaunted dialogue, and will be vigilant to ensure none of the new government officials offer anything that could be construed as kindness. With this, Francis negates any cooperation and prevents
supporting some cornerstones of the globalist agenda which Francis is making the focus of his pontificate. Supporting an unrestricted “right to migrate” is at the top of the papal list, as is the uncritical promotion of the Corona measures, the legitimacy of the narrative of human-caused climate change and the implementation of religious relativism by equating all religions and denominations.
On the occasion of the canonizations he made yesterday in St. Peter's Square, Francis deviated from the prepared text of his homily and said:
“The exclusion of migrants is scandalous. The exclusion of migrants is indeed criminal. As a result, they die before our eyes. And that is why the Mediterranean Sea is now the largest cemetery in the world. The exclusion of migrants is disgusting, it is sinful. It is criminal not to open the doors to those in need.” Returned migrants would be “put in concentration camps where they are exploited and treated like slaves”.
The version subsequently published by the Holy See reads as follows:
“And today I want to think about the migrants. The exclusion of migrants is scandalous! The exclusion of migrants is indeed criminal, it leads to them dying in front of us. And so today we have the largest cemetery in the world, the Mediterranean Cemetery. The exclusion of migrants is abominable, it is sinful, it is criminal not to open doors to those in need. 'No, we're not excluding them, we're just sending them away': to the camps, where they are exploited and sold as slaves. Brothers and sisters, today we remember our migrants, those who are dying. And those who can come in, do we take them in as brothers or do we exploit them? I leave the question open.”
Francis didn't have to mention Giorgia Meloni, her coalition and her election program, because the mainstream media like Reuters took care of that.

1 In the course of the complete restructuring of the Italian party landscape after the collapse of the Eastern Bloc, the renaming of the Communist Party and the dissolution of the previous parties that shaped the post-war governments, in particular, the Christian Democrats and the Socialists, the MSI, which was described as neo-fascist and isolated outside the "constitutional arc", was also dissolved. Its "experience" was declared over by the party leadership and party congress majority. The MSI had consisted of two "souls" dealing with the historically different development of Italy during the Second World War. After the war in northern Italy, the "indomitables" gathered there, who remained loyal to fascism even after the German occupation of Italy in September 1943 and continued to fight on the German side.
In 1994, the Alleanza Nazionale (AN ) was founded as the successor party, which has now been included in the constitutional arc as a right-wing conservative ally of Silvio Berlusconi's center-right alliance.
2009 also saw the dissolution of the Alleanza Nazionale, which had already been in talks to join the European People's Party (EPP ), and merged with Berlusconi's Forza Italia (FI) into the new Polo della Libertà ( Freedom Pole ), modeled as Berlusconi's Republican Party wanted to establish a two-party system in the USA and create a large center-right party for this purpose.
In 2012, some former AN representatives, including Giorgia Meloni, saw this attempt as a failure and founded the Fratelli d'Italia .
