Mario Monti Addresses The People Who Did Not Elect Him Twice In A Row

Tyler Durden's picture


There is one certainty for now within the Italian elections - Goldman's unelected technocrat, Mario Monti, did not win and appears entirely irrelevant. In his first post-election speech - streamed below - the Goldman technocrat addresses the same people that did not elect him the first time, and certainly did not do so now, when they actually had a choice to do so.

Not so super now you Stooge for the Eurotrash.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."

In the shadow of the executioner’s axe, King Monti discovers there is such a thing as pushing the people too far. Austerity is one thing; but stealing, duplicity, cruelty and tyranny are something else. 

The people are not resisting austerity; they are resisting banker tyranny. The banks are getting something out of this, creating crimes against the people of Italy for their own benefit so that they can have more money… And Monti was their mouthpiece.

The axe may be a shadow on Monti’s head but it is also hangs over Goldman and the rest of the criminals who would put Europe in chains for their own benefits. The wrath of the people has spoken.

One thing is abundantly clear, writes Lizzy Davies in Rome: this was not good news for Mario Monti:

"The outgoing technocrat prime minister, once dubbed 'Super Mario' for his prowess at the European commission, was super no longer. His centrist alliance seemed all but certain to come a poor fourth - to a comedian.

“'What a disaster for Monti. A huge communications failure,' was the verdict of Bill Emmott, the journalist whose damning documentary about Italy, Girlfriend in a Coma, has been touring Italy in recent weeks.

"The Twitter account of his film succinctly remarked: 'Monti in a Coma. What a waste.'

"A day before, Emmott, a former editor of the Economist, had tweeted that the 69-year-old was the 'only choice' for the country. Italians, it seemed, did not agree.

"Battered by 13 months of the technocrat government’s austerity measures, many voters had grown to loathe Monti for - as they saw it - turning the screw on them with tax hikes when they were already struggling in a recession…"

LA Times: "An early gain was gone by midday after reports from Italy suggested that the country was headed for political gridlock following strong gains by former premier Silvio Berlusconi and a protest campaign led by a former comedian."

Yep, Italian voters handed Monti his ass by voting for a comedian, Grillo. Sounds like Harpo. Priceless.

So what happens if the Shill doesn't win - Do they get to vote again?

And another question.... Was this electiion done in 2 days? Depending on your precinct, They have like 3+ weeks of "early and often" voting in the bastion of democracy called the United-States of America.

Eurozone didn't get the memo????

If Monti's departure means that Goldman Suchs loses a major piece on the Euro chess board, what bothers me about this populist push is that between a naïve and impulsive Grillo and a corrupt and cynical Tycoon, the populist thrust will lead to one thing AS ALWAYS IN ITALIAN HISTORY : A STRONG MAN. It'll end the Euro but it will put back Italy by thirty years. 

And the Euro continent will have to brace itself to face a survival in monetary collapse. Well maybe this is the least bad of a horrible choice facing first world...and the rest.

God help us, I need a drink just from the thought of hearing Berlu cry out : Bunga Bunga...once more into the breach...

The Euro and EUSSR put Italy and Europe back 50 years.  They should have left the countries alone but the bankster families are evil.  They love to have genocidal wars in Europe for profit while they hide out in London,Switzerland or other places.

I'm surprised more people didn't come out and strongly oppose Monti being put in place completely unelected in the first place.

It should of never happened.

At some point the PTB will try to find an excuse to cancel elections.

Let s think now...

A good war would do the trick.

So how do you get one of those?

Simple just keep antagonizing a group of people who can be portrayed as terrorists until they finally do something stupid, and if they won't bite there is always the trusty old "false flag" . An oldie but a goodie that gets them every time.

Once war is in play obviously the situation can be further inflamed by treating domestic sympathizers as terrorists as well, this is especially
effective if your country is already experiencing tensions from youth
unemployment concentrated in an underclass of foreign nationals of the same ethnicity as your newly created "enemy's".

Once elections are cancelled then the Banksters will have carte blanche and the light of liberty will be extinguished for a long time...
