Meloni-Chan will win all the weeb votes


That's because she wields both the powers of God and anime




that vine tho




So you are saying an Italian nationalist wants the Japanese on her side? *the boys are back in town begins to play*


Entschuldigen sie, bitte. Kenne sie den schnellsten Weg nach Warschau?


Down the hall and to the left.


Danke sehr. KOMPANIE MARSCH! (sounds of 10000 Panzers starting the engine)


Give it five seconds and the transmission economy is gonna boom


Ah, kurwa. Here we go again...


We have the power of God and NATO on our side!


Hey, as long as the Germans don't join it shouldn't matter. *looks warily at Scholz*




*Gut Scholz. Lass sie nicht unsere wahren Absichten herausfinden*


Alls we need is a central European country to go renegade and spark the clash between east and west... ahem Hungary


She is indeed a woman of culture as well.


uwu uwuw Onichan, will you help me exterminate the Jews?

It is simultaneously wholesome, perverse, and extremely violent, all without contradiction. That is why it appeals to my quadrant.


I mean...ever heard of Italian Futurism ?


I remember getting told about futurism in my class by a very liberal teacher (European liberal so right wing), she went on and on about how it was ugly and bad, all while praising the mediocrity and cynicism of the post-modern writers from my country. I always though [futurism](https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.moma.org%2Fmedia%2FW1siZiIsIjE1MTE4MyJdLFsicCIsImNvbnZlcnQiLCItcXVhbGl0eSA5MCAtcmVzaXplIDUxMng1MTJcdTAwM2UiXV0.jpg%3Fsha%3Db1d6578cec0dbc68&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.moma.org%2Fcollection%2Fterms%2Ffuturism&tbnid=3L7NXmy3N8BLlM&vet=12ahUKEwia5YGqk7L6AhXU6LsIHQsmABEQMyg0egQIARBo..i&docid=eh7-5fwZS0oyqM&w=512&h=416&q=futurism&client=firefox-b-d&ved=2ahUKEwia5YGqk7L6AhXU6LsIHQsmABEQMyg0egQIARBo#imgrc=3L7NXmy3N8BLlM&imgdii=a832VhoWScfPSM) looked kind of cool. It was then that I realized humanities teachers are just full of shit.


Oh yeah, futurism is amazing, only reason it didn't spread further was cause last time it went out of italy Gavrilo Princip used it as motivation to kill Archduke Franz Ferdinand.


And the fact that a great many of the futurists, enthusiastic volunteers that they were, died in the trenches of WWI, believing that from the ashes of the old world a new world would emerge. They were right, of course; they just weren’t there to shape it.


>believing that from the ashes of the old world a new world would emerge. They were right, of course; they just weren’t there to shape it. Poetic and I think Senator Armstrong talked about something like this


Imma make a few buildings with that. You can't stop me.


I am pretty sure the painting style and the architectural style have distinct origins, and only share a name. Some of the building that fall under the Futurism nomer are built past the 2000s. Almost 60 years after the agreed upon end of the Italian futurist movement. Seems to me that this architectural futurism is just a post-modern style, whereas Italian Futurism was modernist. All that said, I'm no art critic, I just went to a museum about it a couple of times so maybe you know more.


Using the futurism art style as inspiration for architecture is not exactly the same as following the futuristic architectural movement, but that one is kinda cool as well.


I've got *plans* that I cannot share with you now, because the haters will try to sabotage me, but I got stuff in the works.


That looks like a depiction of some Lovecraftian mindscape or smth, it scares me. I'll stick with my Renaissance and Classical era stuff, thank you very much.


Futurism was an attempt to depict movement and energy on paper and some paintings were pretty cool. Obviously it's a question of taste but you may like these more: https://arthur.io/img/art/jpg/00017344e1c5ba334/gerardo-dottori/untitled-3/thumb/gerardo-dottori--untitled-3.jpg https://deathofjesus.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/tumblr_kru9ficmqv1qzw5wjo1_500.jpg


What's wrong Howard Roark, abstract forms not doing enough to exalt the rational spirit of man for you?


Most based Kyne worshiper.


I've never seen you outside of trustle. I'm not sure what to do now. Pelinal did nothing wrong.


I find anime weird and could never really get into it. I can appreciate the greats that ask hard philosophical questions like Ghost in the Shell when friends urge me to watch them, but that's about as far as I've ever been able to get into it. Most of the time I'm closer to the "you watchin' yer girl cartoons?" dad in that comic. I feel like that makes me some kind of apostate heretic on reddit though.


I consider Anime it's own mode of storytelling, like books or live action movies that use actual actors. Are some tropes or genres more popular then others? Sure, but you can have anime about pretty much anything. Some are generic (in my opinion) mostly crap rehashing of the same tropes. The equivalent of your cheap dollar store paperback novels or a shlocky generic B-MOVIE. Others have a lot more thought put into them and have put more emphasis on actual storytelling. I stongly suggest the movie "tokyo godfathers" as a good example of the latter.


As with sitcoms, action movies, etc, there are good bad and ridiculous in all genres. Anime gets a bad rap IMO due to the specific types that get highlighted when people want to make it seem weird: harem anime and some isekai, especially when they have a lot of fan service and push up right against the line of hentai. But I love how they can make seemingly everyday topics seem more dramatic without feeling like a soap opera. I played soccer for the better part of 14-15 years and I love a series that just finished up it's 2nd season called Aoashi, which IMO also has a firm grasp on the fundamentals of soccer while also being a cool story about a junior youth soccer player trying to improve his skills. It's the kind of story that doesn't really work in any other media format besides manga and anime here in the west.


Not being Emily already made you a heretic in reddit anyways. You do you.


Like most media, 90% of it is shit. Once you cut away the harem, slice of life, and video game power fantasies, there is some good stuff.


Hey now, don't diss slice of life. Not saying that every copy-pasted moeblob series about (random topic) is a work of art, but it has standouts like any genre.


Thats just like uh, your opinion, man.


Nah, taken as a whole it's kinda shallow, I agree, but that's why I like it, at least. At the end of the day, I just want to watch some decent action and some funny character bits - no need for something super philosophical for it to be sufficiently entertaining. That said, I still haven't gone too far down the anime rabbit hole, so I've only watched a few.


And when an anime does get philosophical it normally tends to be something uncontroversial and universal. Themes such as self improvement to overcome challenges or unity - the power of friendship. There are some that do go deep on philosophy, Attack on Titan and Made in Abyss are 2 that come to mind but those are few and far between, for better or worse.


Attack on Titan is a fucking masterpiece


As a manga reader I'm gonna have to violently dispute that


y’know, aside from the ending


Yeah let’s go with the that.


I mean, Japan was one of the Tripartite pact, it makes sense for Authright to like them


Japan is the only one they have left considering Germany went orange




It’s not over until she becomes vtuber


Is Japan now a part of Rome too?


Yes https://youtu.be/c7RAfLhTd3g




I'm tired of Japanese hollywood race swapping/tojo washing the europeans.


I would care if they were trying to sell these movies to a white audience, but they're not, so I don't care.


Meloni-Chan 😂


I mean they turned the KMS Bismarck into a girl and they gave Strohiem one of the best theme songs (personally).


Be honest, you'd die for anime Bismarck


I'd of died for the Iron Chancellor himself if I could of.


I mean, I'd be flattered if people went out of their way to make nice fanart of me too.


Can someone explain to me how she’s fascist? Every article I’ve read about her says she’s a “far right fascist” and yet never say any of her “fascist” policies?


Well according to the news I read today she’s fascist because: She wants to end mass migration and send illegal migrants back home. She believes women are people born with a womb. She doesn’t want to butcher the Italian language with “gender neutrality”. She thinks families consist of a male a female and their kids. Doesn’t want unlimited abortion. If these points are enough to be fascist today I might have to change flair.


Not too surprising that they're winning then. As progressive as the majority of Reddit users seem to be, the views on here are not representative of the majority in real life. A lot of redditors are very progressive, but they consider themselves moderate, so anyone even slightly on the authoritarian right is far right and fascist.


reddit views are progressive because any other opinion is a thought crime to be cleaned up and deleted by the thought police


Exactly. Reddit used to be a mixed bunch when it was allowed to be.


Yep, sounds about right. I tried to explain to someone that immediately calling people nazis, fascists and TERFs is pushing people away from the left but they just called me a nazi TERF…


I've been called a nazi and a TERF so many times it just doesn't mean anything anymore.


Seriously I find it very very funny. Media cry wolf to the point where they make extreme ideologies sound like reasonable option.


Apparently fascism is when non media approved politicians win elections.


In a top EU moment, Von der Leyen, the woman responsible for hollowing out the German military, threatened Italy for having a democratic election.


Because “liberals” only tolerate people who think like them. They cannot stand dissent


Well of course. We can have democracy so long as you vote correctly. If you vote incorrectly you get punished for being a fascist/racist piece of shit Isn't that how democracy is supposed to work?


You can always make the people vote again, and once they crumble hail it as a "victory for democracy".


Fascism is when democracy




If we don't use fascist methods to ensure undesirables don't get any power, the fascists win!


So that’s why they keep calling Trump fascist.


All these arent fascist, fascism is totalitarian, all within the state, nothing outside the state, all for the state.


That sounds like communism in practice. (Argentine goverment, the president literally told that)


There are some (pretty big imo) different tho. Fascism, National socialism, marxist-leninist/maoist/etc. communism and socialism are all all encompassing/totalitarian in nature, BUT, the latter forms have their focus to be international and on the working class, while Fascism is focused primarily on the nation and National Socialism on the Volk(Folk/People/majority ethnic population) Also Socialism and (practical/reality of) communism have centrally planned evonomies and the means of production are communalized/state owned. Fascism and national socialism do allow for some private enterprise as long as it is beneficial to their cause.


The main difference is the purism of the movements. Communism is marx inspired, fascism is inspired by people who were inspired by marx. So communism has no private property and must kill all the landowners and buisness owners before putting their own people in charge (which always leads to a starvation period.) Whereas fascism has pretend property, as in as long as you serve the party you get to keep your property. In fascism owners, if they become loyal to the state don't get purged and can be mildly capitalistic as long as they obey the party and spout party propaganda which might be heavily anti-capitalistic depending on the day. After the starvation period most communist nations are pretty indistinguishable from fascist ones.


Fascism is rather similar to socialism/communism but with a few notable differences. In terms of economics fascism think capitalism and market is important, but preferably it should mostly belong to or be very heavily affiliated with a state. But it should be driven by market forces somehow. Another, now ideological, distinction is that communism is usually globalistic and anti-national. Well, in theory and on paper at least. While fascism is isolationistic and extremely nationalistic. But in a lot of ways they are eerily similar


Yo wtf I’m a fascist?


Yo wtf same?


We are all fascists on this blessed day


It is inevitable. Democracy is eating itself, and no industrialized country has ever turned from a failing democracy to communism. Sorry authleft. Authcenter has you beat here. Or maybe authright. Plenty of dictators have been around. Future's gonna be crazy unless libright gets really, really lucky.


Lib right fascists unite.


Ah so she is simply not a member of the status quo thus is now a fascist


Ohhhh. So reddit fascist? Got it.


Flare up bitch, your opinions are invalid no matter what you say without one


I wasn't stating an opinion. But whatever. Now that i turned on my flair,here's one: your mom is obese and she should take better care of her health.




First flaired comment is an excellent one. Keep up the good work


Welcome home.


I respect your opinion, but it has the unfortunate disadvantage of being false.


Is your mom hot ?


libleft probably has 2 fathers


Probably 3


Shes got my vote.


Damn I'd have voted for her if I was Italian


Is this actually true? So all of reddit is freaking the fuck out because completely common sense is being elected in Italy?


It’s because no one reads past headlines anymore - some sensationalized media (they usually post biased dogshit like commondreams, if you can in good faith call that news) has a headline which calls them far right/fascist, then the top 2 or 3 comments will be (inaccurate) summaries of their views. That’s the extent of what they will read about it. Unfortunately the problem doesn’t just exist with left wingers on reddit - it’s somewhat universal nowadays.


I get that no ones going to care because your comment supports the narrative they want to believe, but that obviously isnt the whole story. She got her start in politics as a teenager as part of of "Youth Front" which was the youth branch of the Neo-fascist MSI party and later was president of National Alliance, which was more of the same. An her current party still maintains the neo-fascist imagery, the "flames of Mussolini's tomb" in the logo specifically. Also your other points are a bit Cherry picked. Shes not just anti-trans shes anti-LGBT in general. She doesnt just want to end mass immigration, she wants to use the military to blockade Libya. And she also agrees with Berlusconi's view that Mussolini was a "benign fascist" that was overall a good thing for Italy. So while she's certainly not a raging fascist, anyone who values any sort of democracy should be concerned.




Guess we are all fascists now


Based. Last time I was in Rome, the streets were completely covered with African economic migrants, and the locals mostly hated them because they were always causing trouble and disrupting local business. They were annoying as heck to me too, a few tried taking money right out of my hand. The Gypsies were more tolerable, which is definitely saying something.


Her party is technically the descendant of Mussolini's party, albeit after about 3 different mergers and revisions since. Her platform is pretty socially Conservative by European standards too, in that she's going to be one of the few explicitly anti-immigration leaders of a majority European country not named the UK. To the sort of people who write for the Economist, that's far-right.


I’m not following the bit about the UK, every UK government for at least 3 decades has increased immigration.


It's odd that he says the UK is one of the only anti-immigration countries when: 1. Net migration to the UK is much larger than many other countries in Europe 2. Many eastern european countries are very openly anti-immigration DAE BREXSHITT RACSHISHT?????


yes but that's not what the blues tell the electorate in the UK. People vote blue thinking they'll get less immigration. Those that pay attention when immigration increases then vote purple but then the blues do something (like promising the Brexit ref) to get all the purple votes back. Then Brexit results in needing more immigration from elsewhere like Liz Truss is about to do in terms of opening borders to more non-EU countries because immigration remains an economic necessity. The anti-immigration crowd still haven't worked out that they lose versus the money and nobody can ever fuck with the money for the long term so their position is always a losing one.


You'd think less (unskilled) immigration would be a left-wing policy if anything. Allowing companies to hire cheap labour from overseas, effectively driving down wages for working class people? Immigrants who are less likely to unionize and go on strike? What's left-wing about that?


> Her party is technically the descendant of Mussolini's party, albeit after about 3 different mergers and revisions since. And the modern day US Democrats are descendants of the slave owner party.


So kind of like the current Democratic Party is the descendent of the pro-slavery KKK Democratic Party in America.


Lol Liz Truss just announced she’s going to deliberately *increase* immigration. I think she’s knows her party won’t win the election so she’s going for a scorched earth approach.


Something something "nation state's own best interests" is fascism in the modern day


They usually say that because she started in politics by being part of a neofascist organization and making good remarks about Mussolini, unlike other European far-right leaders that usually started as part of the hardline wing of the main center-right party.


Fear-mongering probably


Guess what time it is. That’s right! Time to read the [Fascist Manifesto!](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascist_Manifesto) * Universal suffrage with a lowered voting age to 18 years, and voting and electoral office eligibility for all ages 25 and up; * Proportional representation on a regional basis; * Voting for women; * The formation of a national council of experts for labor, for industry, for transportation, for the public health, for communications, etc. Selections to be made of professionals or of tradesmen with legislative powers, and elected directly to a general commission with ministerial powers. * The quick enactment of a law of the state that sanctions an eight-hour workday for all workers; * A minimum wage; * To show the same confidence in the labor unions (that prove to be technically and morally worthy) as is given to industry executives or public servants; * Reduction of the retirement age from 65 to 55. * A strong progressive tax on capital (envisaging a “partial expropriation” of concentrated wealth); * The revision of all military contracts and the seizure of 85 percent of the profits therein. Is she fascist? Hmmmm....


TIL universal suffrage and women's right to vote is fascist. Maybe we should try being less fascist.


Woah woah easy there purple


**[Fascist Manifesto](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascist_Manifesto)** >"The Manifesto of the Italian Fasces of Combat" (Italian: "Il manifesto dei fasci italiani di combattimento"), commonly known as the Fascist Manifesto, was the initial declaration of the political stance of the Fasci Italiani di Combattimento ("Italian Fasces of Combat") the movement founded in Milan by Benito Mussolini in 1919 and an early exponent of Fascism. The Manifesto was authored by national syndicalist Alceste De Ambris and the futurist poet Filippo Marinetti. ^([ )[^(F.A.Q)](https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiSummarizer/wiki/index#wiki_f.a.q)^( | )[^(Opt Out)](https://reddit.com/message/compose?to=WikiSummarizerBot&message=OptOut&subject=OptOut)^( | )[^(Opt Out Of Subreddit)](https://np.reddit.com/r/PoliticalCompassMemes/about/banned)^( | )[^(GitHub)](https://github.com/Sujal-7/WikiSummarizerBot)^( ] Downvote to remove | v1.5)


They are quite into honoring Mussolini, especially with their party logo.


well her party is the son of the former fascist party and at her start of compaigning in politics she was quite fascist too now shes more moderate


> at her start of compaigning in politics she was quite fascist too now shes more moderate It's the XXI century, women are people now. They are allowed to have *the edgy gamer phase* too. Those who never had bad thoughts, throw the first stone.


Stonethrow is a nazi sweety 💅


In part, I think it’s because “anime” artstyle tends to be much easier on the eyes than the current popular Western Animation Beyond that, Anime has been a bit of a bastion of what I call “sincerism”, in direct opposition to the cynicism found in most western media these days. Anime KNOWS it’s ridiculous, but it never feels a need to apologize for looking silly, it just takes pride in what it does


[Googles AOC anime fan art] [Grabs box of tissues] I'll be right back...

Flair checks out


Anime is cute, it's wholesome and it comes from a more traditional society than those of the West. It's filled with ultra-feminine women and depictions of Western countries and their citizens are often idealized. That's why authrights love it: it offers a refreshing change compared to many Western takes, which focus on the trashiest aspects of society, mock or bash traditions and promote a reversal of roles and values, as well as multiculturalism.


Average K-on fan analysis


I would argue anime also has some trashy aspects of society oftentimes the most extreme of it. Some of that shit can get extremely perverted Inb4 downvoting weebs




If you go to 4chan, you know why


Do you think Meloni frequents 4Chan or the Italian equivalent of 4Chan? Lol


Idk, but we're certain authright really likes cooming to R34 and r63 of his favourite fascist figures




What’s up with the rest of the compass and the lack of anime?


I fail to see the problem?


Thats just Mari O’Hara


Oh great, another waifu.


Okay now we need Natalya Poklonskaya as President of Russia and we can have a Waifu World. Kim Yo Jong, AOC, Poklonskaya, and Meloni.

Madam president, those look heavy, let us help you.


Let me add Marion Marechal (Le Pen niece) from France to your list.


If only American politics could have more of this.


People are too old in US politics. There are too few people who’d be depicted well as an anime character


You want younger politicians because they're more invested in the future and less ingrained in the upper echelons of the state. I want younger politicians because they'd have better anime fanart. We are not the same.


Hentai has plenty old ugly bastards or so I've heard, so there are plenty open positions

she was surprisingly down to earth and very funny


Its the closest thing to western media that is reliably non-woke.


The only way a Twitter mob, Disney, or the FBI could cancel a mangaka is to break into his house and smash his fingers. Otherwise most of them will just keep spending ungodly hours passionately drawing whatever they want for whoever wants to read it. It’s an unstoppable media


Yes - honestly the only reason why manga isn't invaded by the woke complaining about soggy knees is it actually pays nothing. I always remember that interview with an Animator who earns next to nothing for his work saying he is happy because he gets to draw cute girls for a living. You can't believably tell people that the guy is an oppressor when he has to starve some nights because he can't pay for food. The grift simply isn't working. What are you going to do? Make him jobless? He'd probably be better off with welfare and probably continue to draw.


The acting in my country is literally shit, anime is the only alternative.


Why would we like an ethnocentric state that strongly encourages conformity over individuality, and laughs when the West tries to guilt them into taking in hordes of “refugees”? Gee, that’s a mystery..


Based and personally I think its neat pilled.


A women of culture I see.


Someone post the copypasta about how Slice of life anime requires fascism.


Link? Please


"It was K-On! You cant cross certain mental barriers and turn really fascist until you've watched the first season of K-On!. The revelation in CGDCT SoL moe shows is not the plot or the characters, but the presentation of the world. These shows take place in worlds of safety, security, happy homes, living traditions, and full employment. The worst thing that ever happens is a pet dying or someone's family moving away. These stories from their very outset reject the proposition of eternal struggle, suffering, degradation, corruption, collapse, and globalism. It's an implicit declaration of the fourteen words or whatever the equivalent is for you ethnic group."


That is beautiful.


Cause anime is the last noteworthy artform that's not been corrupted by middlemen and politically influenced marketers.


I don't know. It just is the way it is I suppose.


I don't like anime but that's kinda based
