Via our friends at Gates of Vienna, a speech by Giorgia Meloni, Chairwoman of the Italian rightwing party Fratelli d'Italia (Brothers of Italy):

00:00 We can’t deny that a process of Islamization is currently going on in Europe.
00:06 Anyone who denies that is an accomplice.
00:09 Saudi Arabia and Qatar are spending billions to spread their fundamentalism
00:12 [in the West, in Europe, in Italy]
00:18 by funding the opening of mosques, cultural centers, and universities.
00:26 Erdogan’s Turkey explicitly tells Turks who reside in Europe
00:31 to have as many children as they can [since Europeans aren’t procreating anyway]
00:35 in order to conquer Europe demographically…
00:40 You see, I think it’s nonsense that we fought bloody wars for hundreds of years
00:49 to stop the Islamic conquest of Europe from Poitiers to Lepanto,
00:54 only to find ourselves being conquered just because we are unable to react.
01:00 I say that we have to react and defend our culture and our traditions.
01:08 Meanwhile, I’m ashamed of how our institutions react
01:14 When the Islamic Heads of State come to Italy,
01:18 we cover up classical naked statues, we remove wine from the table,
01:24 and we think we are being nice and smart by doing so.
01:31 When Mrs. Boldrini goes to meet with them, she makes sure to cover her head
01:40 out of respect. Then to meet the pope, she chooses to wear slippers!
01:45 Because all cultures should be respected except ours!
01:50 Well, we say that cultures are to be respected, but ours comes first!
01:56 OUR identity should be defended first and foremost! Theirs have got NOTHING on ours! NOTHING!

All true enough, but don't break open the champagne bottles yet. In the latest elections, the ones for the European Parliament in 2014, FdL captured a mere 3.66 per cent of the vote.
