Elly Schlein embarrasses the Democratic Party with positions on Maduro, Tav and Palestine

Elly Schlein has only been secretary of the Democratic Party for a few hours, but her recent stances on some foreign and domestic policy issues are already embarrassing the dem’s upper echelons. Officially, Schlein distanced herself from the Communist Party, describing herself as a “native democrat”. All of this is true in terms of age, but there is no doubt that some of the positions expressed above all during his career as a deputy are still putting on a good show. And be judged.

In January 2019, for example, a motion was voted in the European Parliament against the communist dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela. Despite the fact that in those days a hope of democracy represented by Juan Guaidò appeared in the South American country, Schlein did not think twice and voted against the anti-Maduro motion which, however, was approved with 439 yes. Elly Schlein recently defended herself by declaring that she was never pro-Maduro, but that the vote in the European Parliament is still on hold. And it didn’t end there. In May 2021, at the Article 1 congress, she indulged in a curious consideration of the concept of “symmetry”. Speaking of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in fact, he declared: “We are not facing a symmetrical confrontation, the balance of power is totally unbalanced in favor of Israel”. In this strange case, indeed, your concept of “balanced” comparison. Extremist positions also in terms of High Speed. In 2018, it was in the same vein as the M5S when the blitz to exclude the Turin-Lyon high-speed train from funding failed.
