The Italy election and the impotence of the German know-it-all

Written by Christian Mutzel, Aspiring author, staunch right-wing liberal and Nietzscheaner.

Weeks before the Italian parliamentary elections, the German media gave themselves their rendezvous of hyperboles and dramatising adjectives: right-wing, radical right-wing, ultra-right, post-fascist, neo-fascist. Wild was juggling around with these different terms, which can definitely be differentiated in their meaning. Suddenly, however, Berlusconi was also the moderate and Salvini was no longer targeted as much as in the days when he held the post of deputy prime minister. If we think back months or years, then similar media reports could be found about these two people. From the point of view of the German media landscape, there is always a new player on the right-wing spectrum who marks the outer flank of this spectrum or can even be located beyond it. If this disappears again, then the next preceding gradation advances and takes the place of the extreme. If the successor then does the same as his predecessor, another one moves up. Either way: whoever occupies the right spectrum is only the moderate in this narrative until he has been able to defeat the formerly stronger competition. But ultimately, under the judgmental eye of this undifferentiated perspective, there are no legitimate rights anyway. The perpetual escalation in descriptive terminology uses rabulistic methods to suggest differentiation, when in fact a whole political spectrum is being held hostage. And the bottom line is: unlike the Germans, the Italians have learned nothing from history. It’s that kind of Teutonic know-it-all

The teacher is everywhere

It wasn’t long ago that the Sweden Democrats were among the big election winners in Sweden and were integrated into an electoral alliance by established conservatism – accompanied by similar reporting from the Federal Republic as garnished the Italian elections. And before that, warnings were given of the right-wing danger when Le Pen went into the runoff as Macron’s competitor – at a time when Macron’s cabinet was also recognizing the signs of the times and embarking on an intensified migration course. Before you knew it, there was talk of a shift to the right. But dismissing any restriction as a counter-proposal to the German open border policy as a shift to the right is not the only delusion that the FRG grandees indulge in.

Perhaps someone still remembers the immigration initiative in Switzerland in 2014, which the SPD chief rowdy commented on by paraphrasing Obelix: “The Swiss are crazy”. Even then it became apparent that the ugly German was still alive. He is still alive, even in 2022, and gaining strength. Whether against the immigration policy of the Danish Social Democrats or against Polish Catholicism or now against countries in which the election results are unwelcome. The ugly German finds his reason to exalt himself by degrading others and, stunned by the haze of his overconfidence, sells his hallucination of an ideal image as reality, which should kindly apply to everyone.

So German complacency is directed not only against right-wing governments, but against anything and everything that deviates from their European archetype. And for a long time she has not only drawn the ire of the political right. The left-wing Melenchon in France was already getting angry and spoke of an attempt to achieve a German hegemonic position. And the Greens in Scandinavia were even harsh on their sister party in Germany because of the anti-nuclear agenda that was decoupled from reality. Under Merkel, the Federal Republic has embarked on a path of making itself unpopular throughout Europe and it is continuing on this path under the traffic light with the green shadow chancellor Habeck.

Activists lend a helping hand

In Italy, too, the German blind flight may have contributed to Giorgia Meloni winning the election. Migration has become an important issue there, as it has in Sweden and also in France. While our western neighbor focuses on the excesses of Islamic ideology, in Italy it is African parties (meaning orgies of destruction) that made the headlines and the fact that the Mediterranean country is still one of the largest port of call for the transport of illegal migrants from the African continent is – with friendly support from Germany. German activists have set up a tugboat system here under the guise of sea rescue, financed by the Protestant Church and media self-promoters such as Jan Böhmermann, who also like to insult other countries or domestic dissenters if their own ideological corset simply doesn’t suit others. And should someone rebel for a moment, a little fury of moral indignation, blown up like a puffer fish, is enough to immediately destroy this germ. The FDP drops its own staff and constantly apologizes for its own positions in a vain attempt to get the AFDP label, and Friedrich Merz delivers a heroic speech against political over-correctness and for free discourse, only to be dictated to by the Greens shortly afterwards which events he may attend and with which personal data he may speak. As soon as the aggressive moralizing picks up speed, they crawl back to the crosses. when your own ideological corset simply doesn’t want to please others. And should someone rebel for a moment, a little fury of moral indignation, blown up like a puffer fish, is enough to immediately destroy this germ. The FDP drops its own staff and constantly apologizes for its own positions in a vain attempt to get the AFDP label, and Friedrich Merz delivers a heroic speech against political over-correctness and for free discourse, only to be dictated to by the Greens shortly afterwards which events he may attend and with which personal data he may speak. As soon as the aggressive moralizing picks up speed, they crawl back to the crosses. when your own ideological corset simply doesn’t want to please others. And should someone rebel for a moment, a little fury of moral indignation, blown up like a puffer fish, is enough to immediately destroy this germ. The FDP drops its own staff and constantly apologizes for its own positions in a vain attempt to get the AFDP label, and Friedrich Merz delivers a heroic speech against political over-correctness and for free discourse, only to be dictated to by the Greens shortly afterwards which events he may attend and with which personal data he may speak. As soon as the aggressive moralizing picks up speed, they crawl back to the crosses. And should someone rebel for a moment, a little fury of moral indignation, blown up like a puffer fish, is enough to immediately destroy this germ. The FDP drops its own staff and constantly apologizes for its own positions in a vain attempt to get the AFDP label, and Friedrich Merz delivers a heroic speech against political over-correctness and for free discourse, only to be dictated to by the Greens shortly afterwards which events he may attend and with which personal data he may speak. As soon as the aggressive moralizing picks up speed, they crawl back to the crosses. And should someone rebel for a moment, a little fury of moral indignation, blown up like a puffer fish, is enough to immediately destroy this germ. The FDP drops its own staff and constantly apologizes for its own positions in a vain attempt to get the AFDP label, and Friedrich Merz delivers a heroic speech against political over-correctness and for free discourse, only to be dictated to by the Greens shortly afterwards which events he may attend and with which personal data he may speak. As soon as the aggressive moralizing picks up speed, they crawl back to the crosses. The FDP drops its own staff and constantly apologizes for its own positions in a vain attempt to get the AFDP label, and Friedrich Merz delivers a heroic speech against political over-correctness and for free discourse, only to be dictated to by the Greens shortly afterwards which events he may attend and with which personal data he may speak. As soon as the aggressive moralizing picks up speed, they crawl back to the crosses. The FDP drops its own staff and constantly apologizes for its own positions in a vain attempt to get the AFDP label, and Friedrich Merz delivers a heroic speech against political over-correctness and for free discourse, only to be dictated to by the Greens shortly afterwards which events he may attend and with which personal data he may speak. As soon as the aggressive moralizing picks up speed, they crawl back to the crosses.

And because the whole thing is not enough, Markus Söder comes along and reprimands those Union colleagues who protect Berlusconi’s party and advocate continuing to build bridges to the sister party. At the same time, the Bavarian Prime Minister is in favor of taking care of the autonomous Alpine region of South Tyrol to protect against the allegedly reawakened Italian fascism. How the man came to be, that one was waiting for his help there, of all things, the answer can only be read from his reflection. But the German as a model democrat saves the world.

The European values

It’s no wonder that people, disgusted with so much self-importance, turn to those parties that oppose an encroaching EU, which in many places is only understood as an extension of Berlin. And when politicians like Barley or Hofreiter now express their concern that Italy is losing sight of European values, then I wonder what those values ​​should be. Some treaties were made without the people being able to vote on them. Since then, party soldiers in the Brussels echo chamber have been tinkering with the implementation of their idea of ​​a Europe that is to be completely subordinate to the EU Parliament as the central body, with no transparency for the citizen, with the result that the state sovereignty of the member states is being increasingly undermined, without the individual peoples having any say in the matter. Ursula von der Leyen is hoisted into the highest office in a tirade of post-bargaining and then has the audacity to threaten the use of tools directly before an election if politicians are dissatisfied. When an encroaching European Union and German moral imperialism are so closely intertwined, it is no wonder that resentments against this Union and against the Federal Republic are equally entrenched and both left-wing and right-wing parties have an easy time playing them off in the election campaign. And if the political right gets its chance, then this is to be accepted. Anyone who covers any form of national politics with insult and disgrace should not be surprised if at some point he comes across as a fellow without a country.

You don’t have to like the election result in Italy, but you can at least seek lessons for self-reflection. However, the latter is not apparent and it is only a matter of time before we experience the next media campaign of outrage. Italy and Sweden were not the last countries in which a shift to the right is taking place, or in which at least positions critical of the EU are finding their way into politics. Germany will be caught in the lethargy of its delusion and will only be able to face it powerlessly until its supremacy is reversed and the Federal Republic stands alone against the continent.

The murder of Samuel Patty. Shall not be forgotten.
