Meloni has openly rejected the globalist and woke agenda, and adheres to traditional Christianity, embracing femininity, as well as family and motherhood. This in itself makes her a target of the Left. Everything that Meloni holds as a core value is despised by Leftist ideologues.
It is progressive feminists who are angry faux feminists — the real wolves in sheep’s clothing — who turn a blind eye to the abuse of women under Sharia law, who condone transgenders participating in female sports, who advance male hatred, and who patronize minorities, treating them as perpetual victims, not subject to the rule of law or expected to display civilized behavior.
The achievement and values of Meloni are what real feminism is or should be about.
“Meloni Becoming Italian PM Is Bad for Women Because She Represents ‘White’ Feminism: MSNBC”, by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, October 3, 2022:
Giorgia Meloni being likely to become Italy’s first-ever woman prime minister is “anything but a win” for women because she represents “white feminism”, according to MSNBC.
In an article titled ‘Giorgia Meloni’s feminism is a wolf in sheep’s clothing’, MSNBC Opinion Columnist Natasha Norman argues in no uncertain terms that the Italian conservative breaking the proverbial glass ceiling is the ‘wrong’ kind of win for women in politics, claiming that she “pursues a violently anti-feminist agenda.”
Meloni’s Brothers of Italy (FdI) party coming first in the recent elections — after securing not even five per cent of the vote share in 2018 — is “absolutely anything but a win for feminism” despite the fact she has “branded herself as a feminist for years”, Norman insists.
“Rather, Meloni is an exemplar of how some white women weaponize gender and use it to oppress other women and minorities,” the MSNBC columnist alleged, railing: “White feminism has become an integral component of crypto-fascistic and white nationalist movements here in the U.S. as well. ”
The MSNBC article ran along similar lines to one by Britain’s leftist Guardian newspaper, which was angered by Meloni having “sexualised” herself by joking around with some melons — ‘melonis’ in Italian — on election day, and for opposing “pink quotas” for women in the workplace.
Specifically, Norman compared Meloni to Marjorie Taylor Greene, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from the Republican Party, whom she characterised as someone who “[positions] herself as a defender of women’s rights while terrorizing minorities.”
“Part of Meloni’s schtick comes in the form of being a working woman and an active, hands-on mother… But time and again, Meloni has played this part in an initiative to reduce women to their reproductive value,” Norman suggested, taking particular umbrage at the fact that the Italian had said “Yes to natural families, no to the LGBT lobby … yes to the culture of life, no to the abyss of death” while on the campaign trail.
“No to the violence of Islam, yes to safer borders; no to mass immigration, yes to work for our people” was also condemned as “another attempt to whip up anti-immigration fear and support.”
Potentially the most “horrifying” of Meloni’s actions during the election, Norman suggested, had been to share a video of a Ukrainian woman being sexually assaulted in broad daylight by an African aslyum seeker and declaring: “One cannot remain silent in the face of this atrocious episode of sexual violence against a Ukrainian woman carried out in daytime in Piacenza by an asylum seeker… I will do everything I can to restore security to our cities.”
Norman described this — not the rape — as the “ultimate violation”; a weaponisation of sexual assault “to further her anti-immigration stance.”…
“Georgia Meloni’s feminism is a wolf in sheep’s clothing”, by Natasha Noman, MSNBC, October 1, 2022:
Giorgia Meloni, who won Italy’s national elections Sunday and will become the country’s first female prime minister next month, has branded herself as a feminist for years. She said in 2016 that she ran for mayor in Rome, while she was heavily pregnant, because former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said it wasn’t a job for mothers (ironically, Berlusconi is now a key member of her winning coalition).
Although some have championed Meloni’s win as she prepares to join the rare ranks of female world leaders in history, her election is absolutely anything but a win for feminism. Rather, Meloni is an exemplar of how some white women weaponize gender and use it to oppress other women and minorities.
Meloni is an exemplar of how some white women weaponize gender and use it to oppress other women and minorities.
White feminism has become an integral component of crypto-fascistic and white nationalist movements here in the U.S. as well. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., is a prime example of this, positioning herself as a defender of women’s rights while terrorizing minorities. She consistently attacks the LGBTQ community (Greene mocked a congressional colleague who has a trans daughter by hanging a sign outside their office which said “There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE. ‘Trust The Science’”) and minorities (“They really should go back to the Middle East,” she said of her other colleagues, Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who she also argues are not entitled to serve in government because they are Muslim), while espousing Christian nationalism, the same ideology that undergirds the Ku Klux Klan….
