Nebraska’s Buschini Punts on His Support for Italian PM-elect Meloni.

Brian Buschini is a great punter for Nebraska, and his initial political instincts seem good. But as the following story from Dailywire shows, he is thinking neither deeply nor well about the new conservative government in Italy.  Mr. Buschini also has questionable news sources if he has walked back his tweet based on “fake news” attacks on newly elected Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.  Most importantly, Mr. Buschini’s rapid surrender to the “woke” mob makes him look weak, indecisive and ill-informed.

College Football Player Apologizes For Tweet Praising Italy’s New Conservative Prime Minister

by Greg Wilson – Sept 28 2022

A college football player apologized after tweeting his support for incoming Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, a conservative nationalist who the Left portrays as a fascist.

Brian Buschini, a sophomore starting punter for University of Nebraska, posted his approval of a viral Meloni speech from 2019 in which she accused liberal elitists of attacking the family. In the speech, Meloni unabashedly defended her faith and belief in traditional values.

“All glory to God!” Buschini wrote in response to a tweet praising the speech. “Love this!”

The speech Buschini praised, then apologized for praising, has become a rallying cry for conservatives around the world who see Meloni as the latest hope for stopping the West’s slide toward socialism.

“Why is the family an enemy? Why is the family so frightening?” Meloni said. “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.”

Meloni, 45, a member of the Brothers of Italy party, heads an alliance of conservative parties which now boasts majorities in both houses of parliament and will likely form a new government. Critics have branded her a fascist and compared her to World War II-era dictator Benito Mussolini, in large part for her fierce criticism of globalists and her early political roots in a party linked to the infamous figure.

The snap election was triggered by the resignation of Prime Minister Mario Draghi in July, following the collapse of his big-tent coalition of leftist, right-wing and centrist parties.

“And so they attack national identity, they attack religious identity, they attack gender identity, they attack family identity,” she continued in her career-defining speech three years ago. “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.”

A day after praising the speech, Buschini was taking it back.
