Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is lauding new Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s explanation of why the left hates and fears those, like her, who identify as conservatives and support traditional values.
“Spectacular,” Cruz wrote Monday, retweeting a video clip of a speech by PM Meloni posted by Digital Strategist Greg Price.
“I’ve never heard any politician so perfectly explain what we’re up against and why we fight. When you watch this video, you’ll quickly realize why the establishment is afraid of her,” Price tweeted, introducing the video.
“Why is the family an enemy? Why is the family so frightening?” Meloni asks, rhetorically, in the video.

“Because everything that defines us is now an enemy for those who would like us to no longer have an identity – and to simply be perfect consumer slaves,” Meloni says:
“There is a single answer to all these questions:
“Because it defines us.
“Because it is our identity.
“Because everything that defines us is now an enemy for those who would like us to no longer have an identity – and to simply be perfect consumer slaves.”
“And so, they attack national identity, they attack religious identity, they attack gender identity, they attack family identity,” Meloni says, explaining that the left seeks to strip away the humanity and personal identity of every individual:
“I can’t identify myself as Italian, Christian, woman, mother. No.
“I must be citizen X, gender X, parent 1, parent 2. I must be a number – because when I am only a number, when I no longer have an identity or roots, then I will be the perfect slave at the mercy of financial speculators, the perfect consumer.”
Meloni called on her supporters to defend the value of every single, unique human being:
“That’s the reason why. That’s the reason why we inspire so much fear. That’s why this event inspires so much fear, because we do not want to be numbers. We will defend the value of the human being – every single human being, because each of us has a unique genetic code that is unrepeatable.
“And, like it or not, that is sacred. We will defend it.”
“We will defend God, country and family – those things that disgust people so much. We will do it to defend our freedom, because we will never be slaves and simple consumers at the mercy of financial speculators.”
“That is our mission. That is why I came here today,” Meloni said, quoting English philosopher and Writer G.K. Chesterton:
“Fires will be kindled to testify that two and two make four. Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in summer.”
“That time has arrived. We are ready. Thank you,” Meloni concluded.
