Meloni realised got it wrong with Fanpage response-Segre

Meloni realised got it wrong with Fanpage response-Segre

At first she gave impression she wanted to cover up the 'rot'

Life Senator and Holocaust survivor Lilliana Segre told German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) Wednesday that Premier Giorgia Meloni had realised she "got it wrong" with her initially defensive response to an undercover exposé by leftwing new website Fanpage that caught some members of her party's youth wing voicing anti-semitic, neofascist and neonazi sentiments.
    Segre, 93, said the leader of the rightwing Brothers of Italy (fDI) party had eventually understood she had been wrong to initoally "give the impression that she wanted to cover up the rot" within National Youth (GN) by branding Fanpage's methods as "regime-like".
    Segre told FAZ: "I am very happy that our Prime Minister has finally decided to intervene.
    "I think that she as a person, even a very intelligent one, has recognised that her first reaction was completely wrong".
    To the journalist who recalled that the prime minister had initially attacked the enquiry rather than 'the rot' that had emerged, Segre replied: "and then, apparently, she realised that by being indignant about the journalistic enquiry itself and not about the rot that had been uncovered, she had given the impression that she preferred to keep it all secret and not touch it".
    Meloni eventually branded the allegedly antisemitic GN members as being "incompatible" with FdI and reiterated that there was no room within her party for those who are nostalgic for Fascism.
    Fanpage recorded some GN members chanting Duce and Sieg Heil and hailing far right terrorists, while others mocked a Jewish Senator of their own party and voiced the hope that centre-left Democratic Party (PD) leader Elly Schlein, who has Jewish roots, would be impaled.
