From the parallel with Hitler to the repulsive and revolting, Tomaso Montanari continues with his very personal crusade against the secretary of the League Matteo Salvini. Using forms of expression that are close to the models he criticizes so much, the art historian never misses an opportunity to attack the former deputy premier every time he is given the opportunity to speak in front of a microphone.
The academician once again used the stage of “Otto e mezzo”, broadcast conducted by Lilli Gruber on La7, to go back to taking care of his favorite goal again, in fact resuming the thread interrupted during his last hosted one. In fact, by analyzing the popular consensus towards the League, Montanari expressed himself as follows:“To say that if I had a homosexual child I would like him in the oven, not to save the shipwrecked at sea, to kidnap migrants on ships and to want full powers are all incompatible with our Constitution”, the writer had declared.“I remember that the 900 is a catalog of horrors perpetrated by parties that have received consent. Hitler he went to the government with the consent. And I believe that the problem is to understand whether the Lega project is compatible with the Constitution project. And I think in many ways it is not “.
“I find it repulsive”, on the other hand, sank during yesterday’s episode stimulated as always by the presenter of the program. “What do you think of these public manifestations of faith?”Gruber asks her host, well aware of what the tone of the answer would be. “They are revolting, I would say, repulsive”, declares Tomaso Montanari from the top of his chair. “In the Gospel it is written that they are the Pharisees who ask for the first places in the synagogues, who make the trumpets sound before performing acts of piety or devotion “, explains the writer, bringing out an unexpected catechist side.
“This is an instrumental use is an ostentation. But then there is a deeper problem: Catholic means universal”Montanari explains, taking a random page of his very personal dictionary of synonyms and antonyms.“If there is a revolutionary and disruptive message, it is what St. Paul says: ‘There is no longer any Jew or Greek, nor free nor slave, neither man nor woman.’ The idea of using Christianity, Catholicism, as a nationalist identity club is precisely the most absolute denial of evangelical values. I know well “, continues Montanari, “that there is a long history that has taken it upon itself to do this, since the Crusades and well before, but it is a very serious mistake and I, frankly, I’m sorry to say it, but I don’t see anything that is purely instrumental and no longer in favor trumpets as in the time of Jesus but cameras repulsive“, says the writer.
