Italian Conservatives Are Calling for Heightened Border Security Following a Viral Video of Migrant Violence
Earlier this week, shocking footage of a man being beaten in a public square in the Italian city of Milan has galvanized conservative politicians in Italy to take tougher stances on immigration.
Remix News highlighted that the video footage “shows a man being drop-kicked in the face in Piazza Duca D’Aosta by a man described by the Italian Il Giornale newspaper as a ‘homeless Tunisian’ national, before the migrant smashes a bottle on his victim who lies on the floor in pain.”
“The assailant proceeds to brutally kick his victim in the head, as screams can be heard from onlookers, before nonchalantly walking away from the scene,” Remix News report added.
So far, the context of this migrant attack is unknown. However, leaders of two of Italy’s most prominent right-wing populist parties have called attention to this attack.
On September 25, 2022, snap elections will be held after Prime Minister Mario Draghi recently resigned from his position.
“Scenes of ordinary urban warfare between foreigners, violence and blood. Zero tolerance against criminals, security returns from September 25,” Lega leader Matteo Salvini declared, as he sounded off against the migrant attack.
The Brothers of Italy has recently surged as a powerful force on the Italian Right.
The Brothers of Italy leader Giorgia Meloni commented on this attack by asking, “How many other attacks and violence will we have to witness to admit that there is a huge security problem in Italy?
“There is no more time to waste,” she continued.
According to the polls, Meloni is projected to win in September’s election with her Brothers of Italy party at the top of the polls.
In the most recent Demopolis survey, Meloni’s party stands at 24%, while Salvini’s Lega party is in third place at 14%.
Remix News noted that “Unlike Salvini, Meloni’s party refused to enter into coalition talks with the current Italian government, instead choosing to stay in opposition and attack the administration from the sidelines.”
Right-wing populism has surged in the last decade as Italians have grown tired of Rome’s and Brussel’s economic mismanagement and controversial mass migration policies. These policies have naturally provoked a right-wing backlash.
Compared to other Northern and Western European nations, Italy has not been as fully assimilated into the woke, multicultural borg. As a result, right-wing movements may have more prospects for electoral success in Italy.
Hopefully, the Right can come out victorious and start building an agenda that runs counter to the EU’s politically-correct multiculturalism.
