“Pope sounds racism alarm as EU nationalists win big— VATICAN CITY: Pope Francis warned on Monday (May 27) against a rise of intolerance and racism as far-right nationalists and eurosceptic parties made historic gains in European elections.
“The signs of meanness we see around us heighten our fear of ‘the other’, the unknown, the marginalised, the foreigner,” he said in a message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees.“
“Italy’s far-Right leader last night called on Nigel Farage‘s Brexit Party to join him in the European Parliament and form a new Eurosceptic supergroup.
After romping home with the largest number of seats in Italy, Matteo Salvini said his victory – along with that of Mr Farage in Britain and Marine Le Pen in France – showed Europe was changing.
On a dramatic night, it emerged that the centrist coalition that has dominated EU politics for the past 40 years had been given a drubbing in the European elections.”
Pope Francis has long exhibited a fetish for visiting and chumming-up with Cuba’s dictators, going so far as hailing Fidel Castro for his “contributions to world peace!”
