The likely next prime minister of Italy proudly describes herself as a “Catholic mother.”

Sometimes liberal elites cannot disguise their anti-Catholic attitudes. We all remember California Sen. Dianne Feinstein expressing concern at Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing that “the dogma lives loudly” in her, meaning Barrett’s devout Catholicism apparently poses a danger to the Constitution — at least as liberals interpret it.

Another judicial nominee, Brian Buescher of Nebraska, was questioned about the extremism of the Knights of Columbus, of which he was a member.

Liberals blamed the “extremist Catholics” on the Supreme Court for overturning Roe v. Wade.

And now the anti-Catholic liberal elites at the Economist have targeted Giorgia Meloni, who will likely be Italy’s next prime minister.

The lead story in the Economist is “How afraid should Europe be of Giorgia Meloni?”. “Liberals shudder,” the article begins, as Italians are likely to elect “the most right-wing government in their country’s post-war history.” Meloni’s political party, Brothers of Italy, according to the Economist, “has its roots in neo-fascism,” a term that liberals increasingly use both in Europe and the United States to describe their political opponents. In the United States, liberals accuse former President Donald Trump and his supporters of being “fascists” — whether it’s mothers at school board meetings who complain about critical race theory and the sexualization of their children or “white Christian nationalists” who supposedly pose a threat to democracy. Meloni, who proudly describes herself as a “Catholic mother,” and other Brothers of Italy party members are, the Economist writes, “strongly committed to Catholic values.” In speeches, Meloni “hammers away at illegal immigrants and ‘woke’ ideology,” apparently two sins of devoted Catholics. And, horror of horrors, she “may tangle with” the European Union — apparently another Catholic fascist policy position.
