The left’s new obsession is that of “foreign interference”. It’s not even a political strategy, but a psychological condition: the removal of reality. So the committed press and the intellectuals in the trenches – when the ammunition runs out – invent small hands, hidden plans, hidden messages. The latest trend is Russia, which would seek a centre-right victory. But despite the fact that it’s funny that this criticism comes from the direct descendants of the Communist Party that has been heavily funded by the Soviet Union for decades, something is missing from this accusation. Indeed, Moscow’s bet would be quite self-destructive, considering that Silvio Berlusconi has always been – since unsuspecting times – an advocate of pro-Atlanticism and has clearly distanced himself from the invading Putin; Giorgia Meloni has clearly shown that she is firmly positioned in the western part of the world chessboard and Matteo Salvini follows them closely. Of course, the League leader has exploited his side somewhat in the past, but the path he’s embarked on in recent months – and which he must tread with greater tenacity – leaves no room for doubt.
Except Russians, Americans, secret agents and traded ambassadors. The hounds of the most poisoned left can stop rooting, we can only anticipate who is behind the massive interference in the upcoming elections: the Italians. The people the elite gauche looks down on. They are the only real influence really weighing on the polls and, until proven otherwise, they are the only vehicles of the popular will. Even if the centre-right wins, because – think about it – democracy also creates variety. We understand how difficult it is to accept, but it is so. Rather, rather than taking risks with political opponents, a certain leftist should do the math at home and lie down on the couch to do a bit of self-analysis about those pro-Palestinian impulses that have been doing it for years without ever finding a solution. As we have shown from the columns of this newspaper, the posts and tweets of the Democratic Party candidate Raffaele La Regina publish against the State of Israel. Because the worm of anti-Semitism in all its forms has never stopped inhabiting this part. And flirting with the radical left, spoiling social centers, and spoiling any extremists who can bring even a handful of votes is the best way to oxygenate this scrub. The Democratic Party and Letta should have learned over the years, instead of constantly accusing the right of a racism that is now sprouting in their backyard.
The Queen is the latest, but not the only exponent of that anti-Western and anti-American virus sweeping the Italian left from Nicola Fratoianni to Laura Boldrini, sweeping through the former (and maybe even future) allies of the Democratic Party, those five stars who never missed the opportunity to kneel and kiss the slipper of the autocrat on duty, possibly of the Marxist faith. These are bad influences. But we trust in the antivirus of the polling stations and above all in the blessed and very democratic intervention of the Italian voters.
