This didn’t take long.
The speech by incoming conservative Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni that inspired millions because of its pro-family stance was taken off YouTube.
It was a speech she delivered at the World Congress of Families three years ago, and it went viral after her big victory at the polls, and she became Italy’s first female Prime Minister.
She blasted woke ideology and praised family’s importance, which got her the boot off of YouTube.
Why, you may be wondering? The old standby response is that the footage “has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.”
So you must wonder what she said that got progressives all worked up.
Here’s a little taste of her message.
“Why is the family an enemy? Why is the family so frightening? 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.”
In a stunning about-face, YouTube reinstated the video later. Here’s what a spokesperson told the Daily Wire.
“We enforce our policies regardless of the speaker’s political views, and when it’s brought to our attention that a video has been mistakenly removed, we review the content and take appropriate action, including restoring the relevant videos or channels–as we have done with this video.”
The speech went right at radical left-wing gender theory enthusiasts too.
“I can’t define 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.
“That’s 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.”
