Right-wing populist firebrand Matteo Salvini rose to power as the interior minister and deputy prime minister of Italy on a mandate of stopping the nation’s migrant crisis. He is dead set on living up to his campaign promises, but globalist bureaucrats are standing in his way and not making it easy for him to deliver.
Michelle Bachelet announced in a statement on Monday saying that the United Nations’ Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is planning to “send personnel to Italy to evaluate reports of a sharp increase in acts of violence and racism against migrants, people of African descent and Roma.”
“It is in the interest of every state to adopt migration policies that are grounded in reality, not in panic; which provide opportunities for safe, regular movement instead of forcing people to take lethal risks,” said Bachelet, the former leader of Chile who is an avowed socialist.
Salvini struck back at the UN for their contemptuous infringement on the national sovereignty of his country.
“The UN is an organization that costs billions of Euros, to which Italy gives over 100 million every year in contributions and we will weigh with our allies on the usefulness of continuing to give these 100 million Euros to fund waste, embezzlement, and theft for a body that wants to give lessons to Italians and that also has countries that engage in torture and [still have] the death penalty,” Salvini said.
“If I were the UN, I would have half a world to send inspectors to before Italy. Go look for racism elsewhere, not in Italy,” he said.
Italy isn’t the only country that is growing frustrated with the UN. The United States under President Donald Trump is rebuking this globalist agency as well. The US officially left the United Nations Human Rights Council back in June, claiming the entity “makes a mockery of human rights” and is a “cesspool of political bias.” The administration is following that up by taking on the International Criminal Court (ICC), a supranational globalist court that claims to hold authority over the US.
“The United Nations is not a friend of democracy, it’s not a friend to freedom, it’s not a friend even to the United States of America where, as you know, it has its home,” Trump said on the campaign trail before he was elected President.
Salvini and Trump are kindred spirits on this particular issue.
“Before doing checks on Italy, the UN should investigate its member States who ignore basic rights like freedom and equality between men and women,” Salvini added.
Right-wing populism continues to rise the world over because ordinary folks are sick of globalists dictating to them from their ivory towers how the common people should live. Thanks to the heroic leadership of bold figureheads like Salvini and Trump, the days of globalist-run socialism are rapidly coming to an end.
