Italian Minister Plans Europe-Wide Populist Bloc

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini plans to form a European coalition of populist-nationalist parties and leaders that could devastate EU hegemony.

During a speech to a massive crowd of 50,000 near Milan, Salvini shared his ambitions to concentrate and further weaponize an explosive backlash that is sweeping across Europe in response to devastating immigration, security, and economic policies set forth by Brussels and backed by an ever-shrinking cabal of globalists like Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron.

“To win we had to unite Italy, now we will have to unite Europe... I am thinking about a ‘League of the Leagues of Europe,’ bringing together all the free and sovereign movements that want to defend their people and their borders.” Salvini said, referencing his own ‘League’ party, which is skyrocketing in the polls. “I will tour capital cities, and not just European ones, to create an alternative to this Europe founded on exploitation... and mass immigration.”

“What we have managed to do this year, next year we will do at the continental level,” he proclaimed, asserting that voters will need to impose their will in 2019’s European Parliament elections the way they have at the national level in a growing list of countries.

“Each one of you is my brother and my sister, the children of each of you are my children,” Salvini concluded, raising high a strand of rosary beads given to him by an “exploited” migrant woman. “Will you swear not to give up until we have liberated the peoples of Europe?”

The crowd responded three times with a thundering, “Si!”

As Salvini and his administration continue to reject entry to migrant trafficking boats operated by well-funded open borders activists, his Lega party’s popularity climbs ever higher, garnering 31.2% in a recent Ipsos survey - nearly double the 17% support it was receiving when Italians hit the polls for March elections.

Lega is now the most popular party in Italy, and Salvini has vowed, “The NGOs will only see Italy on a postcard... The ports will be closed all summer.”
