The European Union is offering a formal apology to Italy on account of the globalist political union’s early lacking response to the coronavirus epidemic.
Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, apologized personally for the absence of the European Union. Italy received little to no aid from the other member states of the union, who were wholly occupied with containing coronavirus within their own borders.
“Too many were not there on time when Italy needed a helping hand at the very beginning. And yes, for that it is right that Europe as a whole offers a heartfelt apology.”
It seems the benefits of neoliberal globalism wholly disappear when a crisis turns to the worst, and those most committed to the project suddenly discover their instincts for selfishness.
A March poll revealed that a whopping 88% of Italians are disappointed with the EU’s response to the epidemic in the country, which is the hardest hit in Europe. Major EU economies such as France and Germany had implemented export bans on medical equipment, leaving Italy scrambling due to its supply chain being thoroughly integrated into the EU’s common market for goods and services.
Von der Leyen seemed to acknowledge that the EU’s member states had left Italy in the cold, chiding them for an “only-for-me” response during her apology at the European Parliament.
When the coronavirus epidemic dies down, it’s possible the EU’s slight of Italy could reignite Euroskeptic sentiment in the nation, which is thought of by many as the next possible candidate to leave the EU. New polling shows that a sizable demographic of 49% of Italians want out of the globalist political union after they failed to provide any meaningful assistance during the coronavirus epidemic.
Even center-left prime minister Giuseppe Conte floated the possibility of an Italexit in light of the disaster.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
