As all of my long term readers know Angelo Codevilla is one of my favorite conservative scholars. I enjoyed this recent post on Italy’s election. And I had to chuckle when I read this description of the Five Star Movement’s “slogan”:
“The big winner of the night, however, was the “Five Star” movement. This most obviously Trumpian outfit, which expresses the voters’ anger at the establishment, won 33 percent. Its slogan, “Vaffanculo!” none too subtly invites establishmentarians to attempt monogenesis.”
Now as any Brooklyn Italian kid knew back in my day that word would get you slapped in the face and sent to the Church Confessional if your mother heard you say it. But it is exactly the correct sentiment for the globalist dictators destroying Italy and every other country in the First World. It’s a quick read and will bring you up to date with yet another populist echo of the Trump heard round the world.
