Yesterday in Princeton, Ursula Von der Leyen made it clear that she and her Eurocrat regime in Brussels do not think much of democratic election results if they do not turn out as desired. She threatened the Italians if Melonis and Salvini won the elections.
If elections in EU countries don’t turn out the way the eurocrats in Brussels would like, they threaten to withdraw their love financially. EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (CDU) is already threatening the Italians if they vote tomorrow Sunday in such a way that a new centre-right coalition led by Meloni will govern in Rome. “We will see the result of the elections in Italy,” Von der Leyen said. “If things go in a difficult direction – and I spoke about Hungary and Poland – we have the instruments”.
The controversial politician makes it clear how much she thinks of democratic results. During her time as Germany’s defense minister, she diverted state funds to a consulting firm. One of her sons works there and should actually be responsible for it. The process is reminiscent of Angela Merkel’s famous statement when she did not like the democratic election result in Thuringia. At that time she ordered: “The election result must be reversed.” In the meantime, the Federal Constitutional Court declared that these statements were unconstitutional.
Von der Leyen made the comments September 23 at Princeton University. A journalist pointed out that there are candidates in Italy who are “close to Putin”. He asked the President of the European Commission how the EU would react if they were elected. The journalist was referring, among other things, to Giorgia Meloni, the head of the national conservative party Fratelli d’Italia (FdI, in English: Brothers of Italy) and to Matteo Salvini, the chairman of the “Lega”.
Both represent a line that primarily serves Italian interests and therefore also have a rather distanced stance with regard to the EU sanctions against Russia. However, this is interpreted as being close to Putin, even though reality shows that the sanctions are causing massive damage, above all to people and companies in Europe. In addition, these parties are in favor of a “Europe of Nations” and thus against the plans of the Eurocrats to create a European superstate.
In the most recent polls, Meloni’s FdI is predicted to quintuple its share of the vote to 24-25 percent – mainly at the expense of the populist Five Star Movement (M5S), which is likely to come in third place behind the left-liberal Democratic Party (PD). . The Lega Salvinis, also among the losers, is likely to come to only around 11 percent and thus land in fourth place, followed by Silvio Berlusconi’s “Forza Italia”.
