Boebert, MTG Among US Republicans Celebrating Fascist Victory in Italy – https://www.commondreams.org/news/2022/09/26/boebert-mtg-among-us-republicans-celebrating-fascist-victory-italy
"As much of the world watched with alarm as the fascist Fratelli d’Italia party led a far-right coalition to victory in Italy on Sunday, Republican lawmakers in the United States had a much different reaction: Open glee.
Pointing happily to the far-right’s recent electoral surge in Sweden, U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) tweeted that "the entire world is beginning to understand that the Woke Left does nothing but destroy."
"Nov. 8 is coming soon and the USA will fix our House and Senate!" added Boebert, a loyalist to former U.S. President Donald Trump. "Let freedom reign!"
U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), a far-right ally of Boebert’s in the U.S. House, also applauded Sunday’s results, which position Fratelli d’Italia leader Giorgia Meloni to become Italy’s next prime minister even though her party won just around 25% of the vote in a low-turnout contest.
"Congratulations to Giorgio Meloni and to the people of Italy," Greene wrote on Twitter, misspelling the right-wing leader’s first name."
