Question and answer a “Tuesday” (La7) between the secretary of Pd Enrico Letta and the director of Free Alessandro Sallusti on the investigation of Fanpage around the black lobby of Brothers of Italy and on the words spoken about it by the party leader, Giorgia Meloni.
“Giorgia Meloni – observes Letta – in dissociating he never said: ‘There is no room for fascism’. The reason? Evidently because of tickling or in any case maintaining a relationship with a tradition, with certain worlds. We have also seen examples in this election campaign (Rachele Mussolini, candidate to the municipal of Rome, ed) or Gaius Julius Cesare Mussolini (candidate in the European elections in 2019, ed.) “.
And he adds: “Among other things, all this seems stronger today than 20 years ago, when I was in politics. Evidently there is a return of all these trends with respect to whichi believe that Brothers of Italy are wrong. In particular, in my opinion, Giorgia Meloni is wrong by not being clear and clear. In the Fanpage investigation the FdI group leader in the European Parliament has attitudes that are incompatible with the position he occupies”.
The conductor Giovanni Floris shows an excerpt of the video in which the leader Giorgia Meloni, regarding the images contained in the Fanpage investigation, never mentions the word ‘fascists’ (“There is no room in the Brothers of Italy for racists, anti-Semites and paranazis “).
Sallusti comments: “Well, clearer than that. Giorgia Meloni talks about Paranazis and I think fascism can be part of paranazism”.
“No”, Letta and the director of The print, Massimo Giannini.
The director of Libero continues: “From the historical point of view, the greatest tragedy of the twentieth century was communism. I have never heard one of your leaders repudiate communism and to say that he does not want the votes of the communities ”.
“To be clear – answers the secretary dem – The repudiation of fascism is written in the Italian Constitution. The fact that on this point there is no clarity on the part of Meloni it seems absolutely evident to me. There is always this idea of making a one-to-one tie between communism and fascism. It is an idea that is not in the Constitution and it cannot be said that way. It is obvious that we all agree in recognizing the tragedy of Soviet communism or of that in Cambodia. I have no problem saying it. But in our Constitution there is the repudiation of fascism. So, I’m sorry, but on this point, Sallusti, I totally disagree ”.
