You can’t really be against Mussolini. He didn’t do any kind of alleged “Holocaust.”
So what is he even being blamed for, exactly?
Being a good leader with good aesthetics?
The president of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, was again branded a secret fascist sympathizer after saying the government of Benito Mussolini did some good things for Italy.
The Italian EU politician offered some cautious praise to the policies of the notorious dictator and ally of Adolf Hitler during World War II when he appeared on a popular Radio 24 news show. Tajani acknowledged that Mussolini did a lot of terrible things – from joining forces with Nazi Germany, which was a suicidal move for Italy, to imposing anti-Jewish racial laws, to possibly being behind the assassination of his political opponent, Giacomo Matteotti, who was killed by members of the fascist secret police.
But, “he did positive things to realize infrastructures in our country,” Tajani said.
“One must be objective. I’m not a fascist, I have never been a fascist and I don’t share his political thought, but if we must be honest, he built roads, bridges, buildings… he reclaimed many parts of our Italy.”
Despite the hemming and hawing, many were angered by his words, including fellow EU officials. Some said he is secretly exactly what he said he is not – a fascist sympathizer.
Some people on Twitter.
Mussolini, he may be responsible for 430,000+ murders but hey check out his roads and bridges! 🤷♀️
Seriously this is the President of the EU Parliament & member of @FineGael 's group @EPPGrouphttps://t.co/xEeMczS9IJ

Oh so now any death in war is “murder”?
Better not tell that to all the ZOG shills in the Trump Administration.
Millions of people have died in the bizarre wars of aggression against Moslems since 911.
And Blormpf is hiring these people to go slaughter people in South America.
If this is murder – then that doesn’t bode well for MIGA.
Unbelievable quotes from Tajani on #Mussolini. How can a President of the European Parliament fail to acknowledge the nature of fascism? We need swift clarification.

The “nature” of it is what? A healthy country?
Antifascism is fundamental to the European Union.
With his comments about Mussolini, Antonio Tajani has again proven that he is not fit to be the President of the European Parliament.
He should take them back or resign. https://t.co/Ha7M46ngNs

Injecting little boys with hormones and cutting their dicks off is fundamental to the European Union. Flooding Europe with the genetic waste of the entire earth is fundamental to the European Union. Women being tricked into not having children is fundamental to the European Union. Provoking a world war with Russia is fundamental to the European Union.
I can’t think of anything good that the European Union isn’t against.
A shocking statement from @EP_President today that Italian dictator Mussolini "did positive things also like buildings & infrastructure apart from the war & the alliance with Hitler…" #NoPasaran https://t.co/ZA4NnkNkbm #farright #fascismo pic.twitter.com/fXNSaqoEQF

WOW JUST WOW I CAN’T EVEN.
Shut up, you faggots.
Mussolini did nothing wrong, even if you believe in that stupid lampshades and soap hoax!
Italy is the one country in Europe that is going in the right direction.
I harbor hope.
