Tucker Carlson had an excellent opening last night discussing the Italian election and the victor, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
Tucker showed some of Meloni’s recent speeches and discussed the ramifications of the vote in Italy. He correctly points out that those in charge will never learn. They think they are above all this.
They’re panicked because they know the current system in doomed. And in fact, what happened last night in Italy is the best-case scenario for them. Because it was a peaceful transfer of power. That’s a good thing. That’s what you want.
In a democracy, people should be allowed to have some influence on the priorities of the government that claims to represent them. And when they speak in an election, the people who have been repudiated have a moral obligation to take a second and ask, ‘why didn’t they like what I was offering them?’.
They have a right to an opinion, in fact their opinion is at the center of our system, this democracy. But they never ask themselves that. They never take any blame whatsover. They didn’t in 2016 when Trump got elected. They immediately blamed Putin, or Macedonian bot farms. They never blame themselves, and so they never learned a single thing from what happened…
The beurocrats who drove Italians to seek a change peacefully at the ballot box, are completely unwilling to learn from that vote.
Here is the entire opening.
