Threats against the Lega (the League, formerly the Northern League, the party of Interior Minister Matteo Salvini) in Italy have increased in frequency and intensity in recent weeks. In the most recent incident, a video emerged calling for the killing not just of Lega politicians, but also their wives and children.
Below is an article about the incident from Il Giornale, also translated by FouseSquawk:
Shocking threat against the [Northern] League: “Kill women and children”
The video disseminated online “Kill women and children of the League so no more will be born”. Salvini: “How disgusting, what a disgrace. Zero tolerance.”
The threat arrives directly inside an office of the League. A shocking video [that surfaced] at Oristano [Sardinia], full of hate against the League.
“Salvini-s***, kill women and children of the League, so that no more will be born.” is heard from the creator of the film which is now making the rounds on social media.
Only a few days ago, Il Giornale had noted how the alleged wave of hate, which — according to the Left — was invading the country, in reality was being manifested against the League and its secretary. The interior minister has for months been targeted by threats, offensive writings, intimidating letters, and provocations. There are those who urge his shooting and those who burn his effigy. Others smear walls (and League offices) with offensive words and insults. This time, however, it seems to be something more.
It is not yet clear who made the video or where it was filmed. But the intimidations are clear and attack not only the minister or a candidate, but “women and children” of a party so that “no more will be born”. “How disgusting. What a disgrace,” Salvini comments on his social site. “I hope that this idiot will be punished in an exemplary manner. For those who use politics to wish for the deaths of mothers and children, zero tolerance.”
And a somewhat related article from Breitbart:
Italian Intelligence Warn of Insidious Threat of Violent Far-Left Anarchist Extremists
The Italian security services has revealed an increasing threat of far-left radical anarchists with a report claiming a “growing tendency toward radicalisation.”
The annual report, which examines both internal and external threats to Italian security, highlighted the danger from anarchist movements, such as the Antifa movement, saying that they had become “insidious,” Il Giornale reports.
