Italian Political Miseries


by Costantino Ceoldo for Pravda/Moscow

In the tension of eternal post-vote of March 4th, the characteristics of the Italian spirit stand out.

They add up to the events of everyday life, different from the electoral contest, perhaps little precedent or little following to it, but all part of those that we could now define the Italian miseries, punctuated by the passing of the times.

Times of despair.

One should not be surprised that the 5 Stars Movement has obtained 32% of the votes, but instead that there is still 14% of Italians voting for Berlusconi’s party, 18% for the Democratic Party (heir only in words of the more glorious and genuine communist left) and a low 19% that votes the Northern League of Matteo Salvini. On the political level, the traditional political parties have not recovered from the shock of the election results and are still grappling with the first two stages of the elaboration of their personal political mourning: negotiation-rejection and anger.

The Italian South has voted massively 5 Stars. Rather than thinking that just from the South of Italy could start a real season of renewal (or perhaps dreading it), as if by magic, a couple of days after the election results, the news of long queues of Southern Italians behind information centers has spread on great media. All in a row to know how to get the famous “citizenship income” that would be nothing but a well-articulated unemployment benefit, a political promise of the 5 Stars Movement. The mainstream media, those that Paul Craig Roberts in America calls the presstitutes of information, have relaunched the news by making it viral.

But it is a false news, a fake news to say it in the neo-language prevailing today. Although there are considerable denials by some media, the news took root, as it was unfortunately natural that it happened.

Basically, someone has shouted urbi et orbi the idea that the 5 Stars voters of Southern Italy are all scoundrels and therefore they have voted a party out of the box because it would grant them privileges as urban plebs.

The greatest artists who ever lived were Italian. Perhaps a renaissance of Italy’s art would help its reinvention

Few have stopped to think about the deep offense that this lie caused to the Italian people – to all the Italian people, to its dignity, its decorum. On the contrary, this lie has spread like an established truth, with the stubborn credulity typical of people that hate themselves and want to disappear from History.

The usual keyboard-lions, the inevitable word-warriors of the web, on social networks have declared the uselessness of parliamentary democracy, hoping for the return of the dictatorship.

Clearly a Fascist Right which, among other things, would return to Rome the Olympic decor unjustly removed by its current mayor, the (wonderful for us) Mrs. Virginia Raggi.

Mayor Virginia Raggi

I can imagine the disappointment of Silvio Berlusconi when Matteo Salvini overtakes him, but I want to believe that Salvini did not really hope to have votes in the South.

After all the years in which the League has blabbered about secession from Southern Italy, seen as a ball-and-chain, full of mobsters and lazy, dirty people, it is hard to believe that the Southerners would have voted just for Salvini’s party. Offending potential voters today is certainly not a good way to get their votes tomorrow.

Times of (in)coherence. Former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is still in the Italian Parliament – as a senator. This is the same Senate of the Republic that he had tried to abolish because he considered it useless, just with the constitutional referendum of December 2017 that the majority of Italians has, instead, rejected.

Times of confusion (and loss). Mr. Toni Iwobi, born in Nigeria in 1955, is the first African-Italian elected in the Italian Parliament. Just in the ranks of the… Northern League of Matteo Salvini. By his own proud admission, Mr. Iwobi arrived in Italy about 40 years ago with a study visa, graduated in business administration, started a small business and has always lived legally. The leftists are confused and lost: they thought they had the exclusive rights of the migrants, but, apparently, they did not.

Lavinia Flavia Cassaro

Times of rage. A teacher, Mrs. Lavinia Flavia Cassaro, decided to take full advantage of her constitutional right to publicly express her dissent, calling names in various ways the police officers present at a demonstration against the “fascist threat” in the pre-vote Turin. Heavy insults, but also wishes of death (with a bottle of beer in hand).  Watch the video at top of this post.

I wonder if the American police would have behaved differently from the Italian one, but mine is, of course, a question that will never be answered.

Times of cannibals. In the happy (so to speak) Italian town of Macerata, just before the election, the poor 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietro was raped. Then she was killed. Then she was torn to pieces. Then some parts of her body were eaten by the killers: a small group of Nigerians, which some believe to be part of the Nigerian mafia. The dynamics of the murder, the rituality and the precision of the cuts with which the poor victim was torn to pieces, have led someone to believe that her assassins follow the Nigerian Regla de Ifa.

Pamela Mastropietro

This assassination, so close to the elections, has shaken the minds of the population very much, even if never as much as the soul of poor Pamela’s mother. The Left was in difficulty, prisoner of its melting-pop dream as it is, and even now it is difficult to retrieve information about the continuation of the investigation. It’s hot stuff, hardboiled stuff, especially for those who live with pink unicorns on the rainbow bridge.

But here comes a providential anti-hero to restore the balance: Mr. Luca Traini, in the grip of a vengeful racist rage, the day after the discovery of the pieces of poor Pamela, took his regularly authorized gun and opened fire against some African immigrants. Fortunately, he did not kill anyone. It was immediately discovered that Mr. Traini has psychic problems and is a Far Right sympathizer in the Northern League of Salvini.

Western society has always needed the Italian spirit for a secular artistic vision. Is that why the RKM targeted Italy across the last four centuries?

If one were mischievous, he would see in Traini the features of the useful solitary murderer, triggered by someone behind the scenes, but it is not the case for sure. However, a few wounded have almost obscured Pamela and her tragic end. The glamour Left was able to breathe a sigh of relief. Poor Pamela was not really an innocent girl: she had just left a community for drug addicts. She was a druggie, and occasionally she sold her body to earn money. She had done it just before dying, to buy a dose of drugs from those who later raped her, killed her, torn her to pieces, ate and sacrificed her to the assholes’ gods of a religion for assholes.

Pamela did not deserve to die like that. Like all people, she deserved a different end, perhaps aged and with some nephews. In any case, now she deserves justice. And her mother deserves respect, in her pain and in her desire for justice. But even in this case, many warriors of the web have different opinions, and you cannot count the insults to Mrs. Mastropietro, according to that distortion of the Italian soul by which the victim who complains about injustice becomes harassed, going against the common vulgate, here that of the “good immigrant”.

I stop here because the list would be long and depressing. Italy needs a rebirth, but there is nothing like it on the horizon. Rather, one sees only a long and gloomy decline without hope.

  1. 4. Part I: “..the more glorious and genuine communist left..”.

    It reminds me of the great time when they, the more glorious and genuine communists have also been paid millions by the famous Rockerfeller/P2 agent Licio Gelli. That’s Italy in those grand days and I heve reasons to assume, nothing changed since then, only the fassades.

  2. The media reaction towards Ms. Mastrodipietro’s murder is stndard proceedure. Impugne the victims character emplying she got what she deserved. Thousands of Luca Traini’s must hit the streets before theres change. But better, more accurate. A little training will go a long way. Again the media pulls out of their play book telling us; the shooter is an  unstable man with serious mental problems. We should doubt that part. More likely he is a proud Italian man with a conscience. A man who has had enough, a man of morals with conviction who sees through the fog. LONG LIVE TRAINI.
    To the shot callers, to the lovers of mayhem, and to all those who pity the poor immigrants, here is how I picture you when I open the gates to your homes, your families homes. When I unload buses loaded with hundreds of homeless vagrants, and lesser plebs, they will eagerly squat in your back yard to feast on you. I picture you scared and angry as you

  3. It sounds familiar to the rumbling here in the USA. Italian politicians are under that spell, cast in all directions. It emanates from Brussels. I am an (southern) Italian American who is hurt by what I see, and read of Italy today. It is hard to imagine the Italian people were asked for their opinion before the immigration flood gates were forced open. Like Greece, Germany, and all the tothers Italy is targeted. Some may ask. By who? I have my opinion. One shared by many so no need to spell it out. It is up to the Italians to protect their self, their nation, take back what is lawfully theirs.

  4. I have always had a fondness for the Italian people. As a contractor, I always favored them as residential customers, because they have wonderful traditions of appreciation for blue collar workers and craftsmanship.
    There is also, this distinctive perspective of how to handle government and law that acts against the interests of the people. That said, the malevolent aspect of Patriarchy is difficult to remove , when it has so recently been a source of pride. When “The Godfather” trilogy came out, it was in a way, similar to “Black Panther” today. But the scene where Michael Corleone slaps his wife in the face, is a visual that will not be repeated under Raggi’s watch. She is more than just a person, she is a ‘timestamp”. An agent of change sent by the keeper of clocks.
