Italian Rolling Stone Calls for War on Populist Salvini

The Italian language version of Rolling Stone magazine has dedicated its July issue to inciting resistance against Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, in a manner reminiscent of similar public attacks on President Donald J. Trump in the United States.

On a rainbow-colored background, the Rolling Stone issue bears the title “We are not with Salvini” in direct confrontation with the League leader’s campaign slogan in the lead-up to last March’s elections: “We are with Salvini.”

The well-known magazine of music and pop culture follows its statement with an ominous declaration: “From now on those who are silent are complicit,” suggesting that active resistance to the new government is the only acceptable position.

The accompanying editorial, probably written by Massimo Coppola, attempts to justify this radical position by underscoring the unique gravity of the present situation.

“Values upon which we have built our civilization and common life are being called into question,” the editorial states.
