The political scenario in Malta has reached its lowest ever. Malta’s politicians think they can say anything and get away with it. The terminology being used particularly in parliament is disgraceful and shameful.
We heard various terms that are used in the streets but these were now expressed by persons representing our higher institution. If you are called a person whose primary activities are protection racketeering, the arbitration of disputes between criminals, and the organizing and oversight of illegal agreements and transactions, what would you do?
On the other hand if you were called a radical authoritarian nationalist what would you do? Being a fascist means being far right. Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete, and they regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties.
If you were a person that suffered the accusation of such words would you just accept or try and defend yourself in order that no person tarnishes your reputation? Most probably if you are any person of common sense and have been accused of such indecent activities you would try to find remedy to such a call.
In the democratic Republic of Malta such words seem now to be the norm of the day. Anyone daring to defend himself from such terminology will be condemned by Simon Busuttil and the EPP in Europe. This must be an April fool joke. The right political party in Europe is defending the right political party in Malta for using an extreme right terminology. Is EPP giving the message that this is acceptable in any form in the political scenario? Although it may be part of the EPP foundations and they see no insult in being called in a such a manner, the rest of us that know what fascism truly meant do not accept this.
Actually, the addressing of persons with similar terminology is not only insulting to the persons concerned but also to the persons who have suffered due to fascism and to the persons that suffer the actions of the so called Mafia. I would have been very shocked if the Prime Minister condemned a person taking action for being insulted with such terminology. Whatever I do whether correct or not I would never accept being called either Mafioso or Fascist. In this context, Malta politicians should study history, the meaning of words, what they represent and use them adequately.
