Giorgia Meloni, leader of the populist Brothers of Italy (FdI), has slammed leftists in her country, claiming they use LGBT people as “human shields” to push their agenda.
Meloni, who has become one of the most popular political leaders in Italy in recent months, voiced her opposition to part of the anti-homophobia bill known as the Zan bill, which was presented by leftist Democratic Party (PD) member and LGBT activist Alessandro Zan and his stirred controversy with many, including the Vatican.
The FdI leader slammed the left, saying they were “making political battle on the skin of gays and lesbians” and added that the left were using “the most fragile as human shields to do something else,” newspaper Il Giornale reports.
Meloni added that there were many LGBT people in Italy who “do not like to be used and be the object of propaganda.”
