Earlier this week, the New York Young Republican Club announced its official cooperation with Lega Giovani, the youth wing of the Lega party in Italy.
Lega has built its reputation as one of the fastest growing political parties in Italy and one of the premier populist parties in Europe.
In a statement signed by the New York Young Republican Club President Gavin Wax and Member of the Italian Parliament Luca Toccalini, they described Lega’s political platform as one that promotes “many of the same themes as President Donald J Trump, such as halting illegal immigration and resisting the rising tide of globalism.”
In the populist conservatives’ view, “forging new ties between likeminded patriotic youth movements around the world is necessary and beneficial to counter the Left’s growing international networks.”
They believe that cooperation “will bring our respective nations closer together, and we will collaborate to counter the international threat to Western civilization.”
The two conservative groups recognize the importance of the Italian-American demographic — with 1.3 million Italians and Italian-Americans living in the New York City metropolitan area — as a potential voting bloc for Lega in future elections. Their cooperative efforts will involve the New York Young Republican Club assisting Lega Giovani “in outreach to New Yorkers of Italian origin who are eligible to vote in the next Italian election.”
In addition, the New York Young Republican Club and Lega Giovani are collaborating to protect Christopher Columbus statues in the United States. The New York Young Republican Club announced that it “will seek to preserve and protect these statues from the radical mobs intent on destroying our shared heritage and rewriting our history.”
The two organizations concluded:
The New York Young Republican Club and Lega Giovani look forward to conducting joint events in the near future as part of what both organizations hope will be an extensive and constructive relationship.
The partnership that these two groups have crafted is a model that other conservative organizations should emulate.
There is always strength in numbers and no one lives on an island in politics.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
