Armed protectors of Renzism. This is what Matteo Salvini said in an interview to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera about those who do not agree with him. “There are people armed with stones, sticks, paper bombs and other things – explained the leader – and they are playing the President’s game”. Salvini declared this is an indirect defense and said, “I do not think there is his order behind this. Nevertheless, they get their result; every time, they make it impossible to speak about real and dramatic problems”.
According to Salvini, “these sick people are protected by the left wing party”. He thanked Renzi for his solidarity but he added, “He can start closing some squats, they should be all deserted and closed.
He also spoke to Libero saying, “I could open a preschool or donate my blood, I will always find some fucking idiot born with a silver spoon in their mouth and disturbing everywhere. They are the sons of magistrates, lawyers, and people with money. I will denounce them! The police stopped 3 or 4 of them, I will see what to do with them. I know their names”.
