We apply the catechism by opening Italy's doors to women and children who come here legally on aeroplanes, but no more men on rubber dinghies. We will help them grow up and work in their own countries. Let's spend in Africa the money that needs to be spent.
Unfortunately, a certain type of Islam ghettoizes itself and is incompatible with our society. And it amazes me that some within the Catholic hierarchy act as if they do not understand.
I will do everything I can to renew a new Rome-Berlin axis.
The laws imposed by Brussels damage Italian artisans, traders, pensioners, but hey, Europe is asking, so we have to obey. Come on, if Europe asks me to throw myself in a well, I'm not going to do that just because Europe is asking me to, am I?
Renzi is a pawn. Renzi is a dumb slave at the disposal of nameless people who want to control all of our lives from Brussels.
There's water on Mars, and there's life beyond Brussels.
I want to highlight that Italy, every year, sends 6 billion euros in cash to Brussels. I cannot give these 6 billion euros to Brussels and then let them damage us on the fronts of agriculture, migration, fishing, commerce and finance. Why am I giving 6 billion to receive nothing in return?
I believe in the Italy of municipalities, of the Renaissance, not in Mussolini's centralization.
The problem of the Muslim presence is increasingly worrying. There are more and more clashes, more and more demands. And I doubt the compatibility of Italian law with Muslim law, because it's not just a religion but a law.
The biggest problem in Italy is work. And out-of-control immigration damages the labor market because Italians can't compete with illegal workers who are being exploited. So to restore dignity to work, we must control immigration.
The so-called 'far right' defends the working class far more than the left does.
The final objective is not to distribute the migrants among various European countries but to prevent them from entering Europe and from departing from Africa. We need to intervene in Africa. We need to have a Marshall Plan for Africa to improve living conditions in the countries of origin.
We need deportation centres.
I am and I will remain a populist, because those who listen to the people are doing their job, whereas the radical chic who disgust workers are no longer wanted by the people.
'Populism' is a compliment to me. We envision a different Europe where every E.U. country should have the freedom to decide its own economic policies.
Exporting this Western model of democracy in countries that don't want it or are not ready creates disasters.
Like Trump, I would say that fake news is distributed 24 hours a day.
It is evident that the fanatical interpretation of the Koran is incompatible with our values of freedom and with Christian values.
I tell the truth and they call me a fascist, a racist, an ugly, dirty, nasty, xenophobic populist.
At school, everything was left v. right, communists and fascists; what interested me was the discussion of identity, autonomy, federalism, and community.
